SEO Metrics: DA DS DR DT CF TF DP AS and domain authority ranking.

SEO Metrics: DA DS DR DT CF TF DP AS and domain authority ranking. If the title confuses you don’t worry. Id expect even intermediate SEOs are not familiar with all of those letters. Domain Authority or DA is a well established SEO metric by Moz.com that many often confuse with Google's ranking of keywords.  Lets just remind everyone interested in their DA ...that it has NOTHING to do with Google's search results.  It MAY be based on some of the same similar metrics as Google uses but its just a number someone other than Google guessed. What are the other SEO Metrics? Domain Authority Alternatives DS – Domain Score by SEMRush DR – Domain Rank DP – Domain Pop DT – Domain Trust by SEMRush AS – Authority Score by SEMRush TF – Trust Flow by Majestic CF – Citation Flow by Majestic Moz Spam – Is Another Moz Metric For a more in depth look at each ranking we’ve included the SEO Metrics category from our FAQ section.

Louisville SEO: More Than Keywords – Local SEO

I've penned a lot of articles over the last couple years and it never crossed my mind to really attempt at ranking for the keyword Louisville SEO.  I searched it tonight and found the top result was an SEO firm or agency that pretty much uses 1999 (same year they were founded) tactics on their ranking page.  Keyword stuffing is supposed to have gone the way of the doodoo and I push clients away from over using a phrase.  This page uses the target keyword 46 times.   There 1000 word article is 5% of the time Louisville SEO.  I thought well, this just has to be done.  As a native Louisvillian who works full time in SEO I can't sit aside and allow the leader of this keyword to be everything I claim is dead in modern day search algorithms.   Louisville SEO appears 5 times in this paragraph, reading it does it seem they're forcing it? This challenge I've decided to accept should serve as a testament to Louisville businesses seeking an expert in SEO strategy both Local SEO and National/Global SEO.  I hope to jump up in the top 10 by 2020, depending upon backlinks it could ...

Adult SEO Tips

Originally A Guest Post at Stream SEO Make $1,000 per month with sexy Adult Blogs in 2019 Updated on SEPTEMBER 30, 2019 by SERVANDO SILVA Intro (Servando): This is a guest post by Andrew. While we usually don’t cover anything adult related at Stream SEO, I can’t deny a lot of SEOs focus in this industry because it’s huge and there’s a lot of money to be made of. People have asked me in the past if I work with adult sites, and while I don’t, I have friends working in that niche. If you’re interested, here’s a great guide to get started! We’re in 2019 and the adult industry has grown a lot since the beginning of the internet. In 2010, 12% of the website on the internet were pornographic, 35% of all the downloads contained pornographic material and 25% of all search engine requests were pornography related. This was 9 years ago and the industry doesn’t sleep –it evolves. Day by day, new adult websites are launched and the industry is growing more and more. Does that make it saturated? Absolutely not. Actually, there’s plenty of space left until this industry can be called saturated. And who knows if it will become ...

PBN, GuestPost or Syndication for Backlink Building

Backlink BuildingWe can spend all day optimizing our pages for keywords that we researched for days and never rank content on Google Search.  Its just the cold hard fact that in SEO onpage optimization is the easiest thing and it used to work in the 1990s ... heck back then you could keyword stuff and just repeat the same phrase enough in the background and you'd get some traction.  Yes, SEO is dead ... if thats the SEO you are using.Backlinks moved in and added some credence to the claims that our content should rank for this or that keyword.  It made sense, each site that links to you with the anchor text including your keyword was that site basically vouching for your content.  If thats all you think backlinks are then ... Yes, SEO is dead ... simply having a ton of links to your site isn't a sure fire way to demonstrate that your content is rank worthy anymore.Backlinks created a storm of opportunity in SEO for gaming the system and stacking the deck.  I love telling people about the Google Bomb Miserable Failure and how it defined George Bush in 2004.  Or the story of the downfall ...

Every Link Counts Now. Rel+"NoFollow" used to mean don't follow this link and give the target any credit for this backlink.  Thats changing, all links will now be rewarded potentially...some links have been described as "hints" with "signals" still in the rankings.  It's not clear if they are one in the same or separate.
