Technical SEO: 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.

DA AS TF Domain SEO

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

What would Google Cloud need to do to catch up to AWS and Azure? Matt Leffler, I host another complete web stack on GCP Answered on Quora Ease of use is one thing.

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
