Value Of SEO Backlinks From A Press Release – Experiment

SEO Experiments Vs HearsayOne thing I hope folks appreciate about the articles and topics I cover is the experimentation. This article is not any different from our previous discussions based on real world observations. Some of these original articles based on experiments include:Its important to read what others have discovered but you have to take everyone’s opinion for what it is … an opinion. If its based on hearsay, then its not even their opinion … its just a repeated opinion from some unnamed source. With that said I’ll stop preach onWhat Is The Value Of SEO Backlinks From Press Releases in 2020Recently I signed up to be included in a press release.

SEO Research – Easy Smart Searches Using Google Operators

Searching is a lot more complex than typing a word and shifting through results.  Using Google Search Operators, predefined instructions that focus the results anyone can gain insights into Google's thoughts. SEO Research: Getting To What Google Really Knows SEO Research often begins and ends with one randomly found site's auto audit. There are hundreds of sites that will tell you the character count of this field and that.  These are all good and well but they aren't intelligent and offer a glimpse of how that tool sees your site, not Google.  In the end do you want to get an A grade by a random SEO tool or do you want to rank higher on Google?  These are not the same goals often. Using Google Search Operators you can extract a focused image of your site.  Here's a fast example, how many pages has Google indexed from your site?  You may have 100 blog posts but thats not the answer here.  You can setup and use Google Search Console, and you should, but a quick way to answer this in the moment is: site: ultimateseo.org Above we can easily see that Google has indexed 2,650 pages of ultimateseo.org.  Thats ...

Buying A Domain Is Much Like Buying A Car

What Is A Domain Worth? Buying An Aftermarket Domain.

Buying a domain that is already registered is a complex process, but that centers around a simple fact.  A domain's value is equal to the amount someone is willing to pay for it.  Its not what a seller is willing to sell it at, cause I can tell you I'll sell "ultimateseo.org" for a billion dollars but it isn't worth that until someone will pay that. Determining A Domains Value There are a lot of factors that come into play.  Here are some:
  • The length
  • The TLD ( is it a .com or a .wtf )
  • The Traffic It Gets
  • The SEO Value It Hold
    • How many sites link to it?
    • How many keywords does it rank for?
    • The perceived authority of the domain...
  • The Search Volume
  • Its ranking position for the keyword it represents ie ( ultimate seo ... who ranks for that term )
  • Its history
  • How its being used presently
  • Who owns similar names ... if the .org .net for instance are not registered then the .com isn't as valuable. This speaks toward how many potential buyers there are for the domain.
Ultimate SEO LLC has ultimateseo.org as well as ultimateseo.net but ...

Advanced Cloudflare SEO On WordPress

There are countless guides that will walk anyone through creating a Cloudflare account, installing the plugin and completing the setup on WordPress. This isn't one of those guides. This is whats next ... what to avoid and how to mitigate common issues. General Cloudflare WordPress Troubleshooting This goes for almost any issue...the first steps to solving a problem. First ... clear the cache of all files ... if this does not resolve your issue turn on Development mode.  This completely bypasses the cache.  To ensure the firewall or page rules aren't the source of your issue you may want to temporarily, completely turn off Cloudflare by unselecting the orange cloud in your site DNS records.  If the cloud is grey and the issue continues its not Cloudflare.  Remember to click the grey cloud turning Cloudflare back on ... indicated by an orange cloud. If your site has an issue and its not Cloudflare it can very easily be another cache.  I have a css js combining plugin that creates cached css js files that then are feed to Cloudflare who caches them.  Clearing Cloudflare cache doesn't clear the plugins, so check those as well.

301 Redirects Of Expired Domains – What SEOs Don’t Tell Ya

Wouldn't it be so much easier to just buy a site thats similar to yours and redirect all their backlinks to yourself ... you might try pointing them to relevant content or simply to your homepage.  I do that.  One such domains is SEOGurl.com, no I'm not a gurl but I support more women in tech and I do SEO.  I also have SEOBoys.net.  Both domains were active for someone else who has since let them go, but they still had a wealth of backlinks. I've lead clients to try it with great results.  But it seems black ops and the more prolific SEO channels out there generally ignore redirecting old domains, sometimes called "drop domains" or they discourage it. Consider Yoast ... they are the SEO plugin, hands down number one in page optimization on a WordPress site.  Their blog then largely is widely accepted and they have said relatively nothing on the matter ... but would it surprise you to learn they actually do it themselves?  Something they do but they've never made a blog post about it. Heres a video I made where I show others redirecting backlinks from now functionally defunct sites to their homepage. Now ...

Building A Custom CDN With DigitalOcean – UltimateCDN.com

Ultimate SEO is all for trying things and testing out options.  While we've used JetPack we've settled on Cloudflare over a year ago as our preferred CDN provider.  Ultimate SEO is a Cloudflare Certified Partner and we offer SEO Hosting packages through our Ultimate SEO Network which uses https://ultimateseo.net for all infrastructure. Building a custom CDN though we registered UltimateCDN.com which we'll use in this experiment. Speed And Mobile Search Results In previous articles we've discussed the importance of speed.  Two client articles addressed this: Sex, Speed And The SEO Migration of Romantic Depot to WordPress and Optimizing For Site Speed: Page Load To SEO Cloud Server Infrastructure. We have also shown how less established, less well known, less trusted sites can out rank household brands by just being faster in Can Page Speed Alone Make A Difference In Google Ranking? Yes, it even beats Domain Authority. With mobile searches number now over 50% of all searches speed is a premium means to rank up among content.  Every time this site loads in the 2 second range we gain momentum and every time I find myself dropping in the rankings I realize I forgot to turn on our CDN.

Shawn Reilly And Political SEO

Political SEO Case Study: Louisville Metro Council Website

Highlands Campaign Site A site that I was lucky to work on during this 2020 election was that of Shawn Reilly, a candidate for Louisville Metro Council District 8.   The site is aesthetically pleasing, the candidate picked out a good template for that.  The template does incorporate some oddities in its coding and utilizes a page builder that was new to me.  Elementor remains my go to favorite page builder and is widely used, this template uses Bold Builder which reminds me a little bit of King or WP Page Bakery. The page builder can be unintuitive and clunky at times requiring creative fixes and CSS hacks.  Ultimately though I'd say the page builder is neither an asset or a liability for this theme. Reillyforcouncil.com wasn't my preferred domain name, I prefer the candidate's name but I joined the effort after the initial decisions were made, including the web host. Coronavirus and 2020 Election The COVID-19 pandemic has had an effect on the election.  The way it is carried out and the date have had to adapt.  The candidate created a smart section to the site about this new factor in the election.  A Coronavirus resource page for Louisville ...
