I wanna share a graphic I ran across online with you today. According to this one if you want to impact your SEO standing all of the On Page Factors combined don’t reach even half the power of the Domains Backlinks and the Page’s Backlinks. I often have clients who comb over their sites day after day tweaking the words on the page with bold or moving them to a header and if they spent 1/4 of that time trying to attract other sites to link to them they’d get 5 times the result. Its one thing to say your the best, its a totally different thing if someone else says your the best. Or if someone says you’re the worst it really doesn’t matter how many times or ways you say you’re the best. It’s logical too…if you meet a person for the first time and they boldly proclaim[Find Out 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
In PBNs 2019 Part 1 we discussed some logistics of organization on a high level concerning Cloudflare, Spreadsheets and above all randomness. In this the second part of our private blog network series we’ll focus on expired domains and the assessing of their value.
Domain Authority Is One Part
First, we will look at Domain Authority but before we do lets note Domain Authority in and of itself is worthless. It IS NOT used by Google. It is made by a company called Moz and it is their best guest how Google interrupts the content on a site based on
This post was originally made 3/7/2019 but was lost during a restoration from backup while Ultimate SEO was dealing with a DOS attack. Updates That Matter AND Updates That Don’t I’ve heard things come in threes so curious whats next because 2 big updates this week are out. Now unfortunately the one that matters is unlikely to gain as much attention as the one that doesn’t mean anything. So lets begin on what folks are focused on…something that means nothing. MOZ Domain Authority 2.0 Moz redid their Domain Authoritycalculations and the implications are HUGE for those who workat Moz. If you don’t workthere then its not a big deal. Domain Authorityis like a fake credit score. Your bank will likely use your FICA score but no one can release your FICA score to you but FICA. To solve this banks and other organizations created their own scoring systems that attempted[Find Out More]
UltimateSEO.org has backlinks from about a thousand domains. In a recent review of these I found an odd reoccurring link from multiple domains but all with the same content and titles. I was introduced with “The Globe” which charges sites to NOT list them or makes money from SEOs paying them to not backlink to them. At $36 a link they’re likely insane and I bet its bringing in some money. But before we go all crazy and start paying Ransomlinks (if its not a word I claim it … Ransomlinks are backlinks from bad sites meant to
Multi-Domain Strategy In SEO
So I feel like its everyone’s dream to be a media conglomerate, why buy one newspaper when you can buy 100s? Well, SEO and the internet are one big community…so in the analogy … why build multiple newspapers in the same city? No one would do that and it’s about the same with the internet or at least it should be…but everyone wants to have multiple top ranking domains.
Real Life Examples Of Multiple Domains
There is only two ways this could work out…
- Your brand is merging with another equally powerful and recognized brand
Citation Factor, Trust Factor And How They Relate To Domain Authority
They actually don’t relate to Domain Authority. Domain Authority is a metric designed by Moz to help replace Google’s Page Rank which used to be made available to the public but has since been discontinued or at least the public portion is no longer available. Now Moz isn’t the only company offering a replacement to Page Rank, Majestic came up with Citation Factor and Trust Factor. You’d expect these two still somewhat relate to each other as they in theory are meant to portray the same thing but they
Domain Authority is in my opinion the single greatest indicator of a sites ability to compete organically for search traffic. It is a great question and its simply complex. Keep in mind Domain Authority or DA as we shall refer to it pretty much here on is the single best number to predict ranking ability and we know that the top 3 positions consume over half of all searches so it can be directly attached to traffic.
A few disclaimers: Domain Authority is not a Google creation it is from Moz.com and it is their educated guess at how
Determining When You Have A Chance At A Keyword
So as I was reading for fun I stunbled across an often cited and well referenced Neil Patel article. So this isn’t my work but I wanted to share the excerpt from his much bigger article on how long it takes to rank.
6. Decide which keywords you should win before building out content based on those keywords.
Some content marketers set out to win ranking for a given keyword, without doing their due diligence on that keyword.
This can be a mistake.
Why? According to our data, websites that sought
