Custom SEO Site Audit

Example Audit Considerations This post includes a client audit recently completed with the client’s name largely removed.  Some reports are linked too from within the report and since those reports are still of use to the client they remain largely intact. This has prevented redaction of these external reports. Graphics may include the client’s site […]

Duplicate Content Kills 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 penalty and notes much of the web is duplicate content, the question is whether your use of the content ads value.

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

Cloud Computing: Digital Ocean vs Google Cloud vs AWS

This may seem off topic but its on topic, technical SEO is imperative … you’re not going to rank number one on Google using Shopify or Wix.  It just isnt going to happen.

Its also apparently difficult to get solid advice on SEO Hosting from “experts” Best Blog Hosting for SEO is junk … reciting features doesnt make a hosting plan the best…one quote notes that WordPress is already installed with InMotionHosting.com … so what!  Our web servers are preconfigured to install WordPress in every new account as well…it only saves maybe 5 minutes per user but for

What Would Google Cloud Need To Do To Catch Up To AWS And Azure?

Matt Leffler
Matt Leffler, I host another complete web stack on GCP

Ease of use is one thing. I have clients that can benefit from cloud based solutions. They may have a typical hosting account with some name brand hosts but for various reasons I find myself getting annoyed and deciding I’m moving them to the cloud.

I move them to Google Cloud Platform but only temporarily because I know that when I leave them (I’m just a freelancer) they’ll be lost. If they

Why is AWS beating Google, Microsoft, Oracle and IBM?

I believe Google Cloud was launched after AWS so a head start helps for one.

AWS also has a free tier, it’s like giving the first hit of ecstasy to someone free. Why not use this free server. Then that server needs to expand and you make plans and youre hooked and know the AWS cloud better than Google.

Google Cloud offers a credit of $300 right now to try and get you involved but its not the same as a free tier of service. Once the $300 is gone its always going to cost you whereas you can downgrade
