Backlinks And Ranking

Backlinks 101 – SEO’s Off-page Often Ignored Power Ranker

Backlinks 101 First off a little disclosure this article over laps the Backlinks category of the FAQ. What Are Backlinks? Backlinks are links from other sites.  Think of them as votes of affirmation.  Only one vote can come from a domain so for SEO purposes it doesn’t matter if there are 100 or 1 link from the same domain one link is the count you gain.  Subdomains are viewed separately...thats why yourblog.tumblr.com isn't a tumblr backlink.  Now those other links may increase traffic to your site but in regards to SEO value its one vote.  Some call this metric "Domain Pop" ...

PBNs: Private Blog Network – The Crack Habit Of SEO

First off, lets note that PBNs are not viewed well in traditional SEO and are hunted like witches in Massachusetts in the 1600s.  They must be large to matter, having anywhere between 20 to several thousand sites. They are the equivalent of building dozens of WordPress sites taking hours and hours from other SEO opportunities. They work. What Are Private Blog Networks? Private or Personal Blog Networks, PBNs are sites built with the purpose of providing backlinks to another site.  This other site is often called "the money site."  Google is known to be hostile to these sites and prone ...

MAJOR GOOGLE SEO CHANGE FOR SOME: Website Traffic CREDITED To Where Google Chooses

Consolidating your website traffic on canonical URLs Wednesday, February 06, 2019 In Search Console, the Performance report currently credits all page metrics to the exact URL that the user is referred to by Google Search. Although this provides very specific data, it makes property management more difficult; for example: if your site has mobile and desktop versions on different properties, you must open multiple properties to see all your Search data for the same piece of content. To help unify your data, Search Console will soon begin assigning search metrics to the (Google-selected) canonical URL, rather than the URL referred ...

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. Wordstream Free Alternative In Ultimate SEO's  struggle to compete in ...

How To Rank Your Site On Google…Forget the Keywords

How To Rank Your Site On Google...Forget the Keywords Well don't totally forget the keywords but I think if you spend more than 5 minutes on keywords you're going to be pretty surprised by some purported data I stumbled across.  As you likely know Google uses about 200 factors in determining your sites ranking.  I personally have place a lot of emphasis on speed and backlinks and while I have thought it was important I must admit I didn't give the social media factor as much attention as I should. The first big thing to not is that 10.3% of ...

Seeing The Forest From The Trees

Web Site SEO Visualizations

I’m a visual person as I believe most of us are which is why I am fascinated by these images of sites that I have visualized.  Green dots are working pages, blue dots are redirects and orange dots are pages that don’t exist or are forbidden.  The connecting lines represent link structure of a site.  The larger a dot the more traffic it receives.

It’s important to see a site as more than just keywords and pages.  Understanding the who site and how its structured is just as important as reviewing the individual pages.
