One might think cybersecurity is not an SEO topic, but it is a very important SEO topic. SEO as I keep noting here is more than keywords today. Technical SEO is about speed optimization, files such as robots.txt and sitemap.xml and security of your site IS an SEO matter. If you neglect your security Google […]
Duplicate Content – Killing Your SEO Duplicate content is a threat to your SEO rankings but not in the way you think. It is distracting you from stuff that actually matters. Google has no Duplicate Content penalty and notes much of the web is duplicate content, the question is wether your use of the content […]
Keywords In Headers – How Your H1 H2 Tags Are SEO Keywords Too often people mistake the real value of the H1 and H2 headers when designing a website. Not only do they come with big or bolder text but used correctly they provide the natural place to put your page’s keywords and thats where […]
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 […]
In several previous articles we’ve covered: Domain Auditing, Page Speed And SEO, Backlinks and even some less than white hat techniques such as Private Blog Networks, Guest Posts and more. All of these are cogs in the greater overall machine which is Search Engine Optimization or SEO. To you and any other website owner it […]
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.

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
How to hire an SEO
|hi I’m Maile Ohye and I work with Google|
|search I like to share advice to help|
|you hire a useful SEO and prevent hiring|
|a bad SEO one who you might pay a lot of|
|money without positive results or even|
|worse one who implements shady practices|
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.
IFTTT And Buffer
Thats where IFTTT has stepped in and been able to save time while helping to get a message out
Much of the info in this post is from an article on engadget. I became aware of the situation as I was working to build an IFTTT applet that would change my office lights to red if a website went down and I got an email about it from Uptime Robot. That applet can probably still be made but just not using Gmail anymore as a trigger.
This is a repost from https://www.mattcutts.com/blog/site-speed/ and its also from 2010. We’re reposting it here for our visitors to see how speed has long been a ranking factor. Its importance has grown considerably since this announcement was made in 2010. Google’s Mobile First initiative and creation of a separate mobile index matches the growing change […]
