SEO And Migrations: Matt Cutts On Changing Domain Names

SEO And Migrations: Changing Domain Names With Matt Cutts Migrating your site from one domain name to another can be problematic and the SEO implications can be long lasting.  UltimateSEO.org was not the original domain name for this site. SEOData.cloud was and it seemed great because it used three aspects of what I wanted to focus on all in one address.  Of course it lacked any backlinks or history and wasn't a .com .net, or a .org. I switched after ultimateseo.org expired from another person because it had the backlinks and metrics of a site years ahead of SEOData.cloud. There ...

What A CDN Can Mean For Your SEO

Almost everyone has heard of the importance of site speed, even the average blogger with lackluster technical skills. In a previous article we did a comparison between two domains and found speed was the likely signal pushing one site above another in mobile searches. Google wants to provide sites that users will actually use. You may have the absolute best content but if it takes over 3 seconds to load your page its a big problem for ranking.
  • Each 1 second delay reduces page views by 11%
  • Each 1 second delay decreases customer satisfaction by 16%

On Page SEO Just Doesn’t Rank Keywords like Backlinks

I wanna share a graphic I ran across online with you today. Keywords Or Backlinks? Invest your time in backlinks. According to this one if you want to impact your SEO standing all of the On Page Factors combined don't reach even half the power of the Domains Backlinks and the Page's Backlinks.

Google Search Ranking Factors

Is A Site Low Level? DA vs CF vs TF … DR, DS, AS, TS and more!

What to do with a low ranking site? I was asked a seemingly simple question by a client today. Should low level sites he owns be scrapped and used for their backlinks by 301 redirecting the sites. Simplest Answer: I think it's hard to quantify if a site is low level. Ultimateseo.org has a DA 19, that seems pretty low. But keep in mind it used to be a DA 40 before Moz changed it's scoring. Keep also in mind that change in scoring showed no reflection in the site's ranking. I recommend 301 redirecting based on anchor text not ...

A WordPress Design, SEO and Adwords Project Completed

WordPress, Bootstrap, CSS, HTML, AWS, Google Cloud Platform, SEO, SQL, Adwords by Matthew Leffler Technology I have a solid record of identifying a problem and making a solution that yields measurable results. I was recently the technology manager for a political campaign where I built a WHM/cPanel server on CentOS using Amazon Web Services to host about 14 WordPress websites. The server also provides mailing lists, a team management site, RSS feeds augmentation and its own name servers. I was able to get the server and sites built in a couple months. I’ve managed the SEO and Adwords for these sites and have data that helps demonstrate the value I added to the organization.

Adwords And Google Data Studio: Wordstream Alternative

I've been managing Google Adwords campaigns for political campaigns mostly but recently I stepped out into managing the Adwords campaigns for an IT consulting company. It's a little bit of a challenge I'm not going to lie. More than just matching the search with the keyword I need to attract only business customer and cut out residential. So as you can image someone Googles "IT Help Desks" and they might be looking for a specific help desk, a personal help desk or a help desk to contract business services too.

Auto Posting Across Social Media Platforms – IFTTT – Buffer.com

I hate missing out just as much as anyone else. Its why Ultimate SEO has accounts on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Tumblr, Pinterest, Flickr, Youtube, Blogger, Instagram, SnapChat and more. But the only thing worse than not being on a platform is to not appear active on that platform. If someone’s first impression of you or your company is your activity on a forgotten profile it is more damaging than not having been there to begin with.

Bad Backlinks: 100 Sites You Don’t Want A Backlink From.

Bad Backlinks UltimateSEO.org has backlinks from about a thousand domains.  In a recent review of these I found an odd reoccurring link from multiple domains but all with the same content and titles.  I was introduced with "The Globe" which charges sites to NOT list them or makes money from SEOs paying them to not backlink to them.  At $36 a link they're likely insane and I bet its bringing in some money.  But before we go all crazy and start paying Ransomlinks (if its not a word I claim it ... Ransomlinks are backlinks from bad sites meant to lower your SEO score unless you pay to not be linked too.) In reviewing the situation I ran across a list of the most disavowed ...

Cloudflare DNS and CDN With WordPress High Availability On Google Cloud

Key Components & Services There are two custom services running on the deployed machines that are essential for the solution to function properly. These services are ​gcs-sync ​(running on WordPress instances – both Admin and Content) and ​cloudsql-proxy​ (running on the SQL Proxy instances). The ​gcs-sync​ service runs a script ​/opt/c2d/downloads/gcs-sync​ that, depending on the role the VM is assigned (Content or Admin), will check in with the GCS bucket tied to the deployment and determine if content needs to be pushed to or pulled from GCS. If you need to interact with the service, you can do so via ​systemctl​. For example: systemctl stop gcs​-​sync will kill the script checking GCS, and the node will not receive any updates that come from the Administrator ...

Creating A Private Blog Network: PBNs In 2019 For SEO

First and foremost the most important aspect of your Private Blog Network is randomness.  Consider what pattern or foot print your PBN might have and avoid that commonality. Patterns and commonality to avoid in building a Private Blog Network Good PBNs Are Random, Start With Different Name Registrars First off you need private domain registration, if not private then you’ll need people and addresses from all over.  If you always use Godaddy you’re going to have to try out others to avoid a pattern.  Incidentally if you always use Godaddy you’re getting ripped off as they will charge you for privacy and many others don’t.  Some popular Name Registrars are 1and1.com namesilo.com namecheap.com cosmotown.com each of these can save you a considerable amount over Godaddy ...

Easiest Tools To Speed Up WordPress Site Load Times For SEO

Cloudflare And Plugins In a previous post we noted the difference speed can make in search engine ranking. The same content delivered in different ways was listed on the same domains but in different positions between desktop and mobile indexes. Site Speed Affects Ranking In this post we’re going to review two less popular ways to speed up your site and we’ll mention the popular ways. There’s a reason why Ultimate SEO uses slightly different processes for page load. Often people download plugin optimizers and add page cache plugins to speed up their sites. Caching is important and serves as one of the best methods of speeding up a site, but there are several points in which you may decide to cache content and where ...
