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

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

Keyword Tools: List of SEO/PPC Tools

Keywords And Finding Topics That Your Client’s Is Interested In

Wordtracker

is a tool offered by a company that provides 12 free searches.  I’m not super sold on its grand ability, it took the phrase IT Managed Services and tied into it “movie star planet”, “management definition” and “managed service provider”, among others.  My concern is that management definition as a keyword is of no use or value to an IT Managed Services company.  The next two terms are so broad all the industries out there will be searching similar words and your chances of paying for a false positive

What Would Google Cloud Need To Do To Catch Up To AWS And Azure?

Matt Leffler
Matt Leffler, I host another complete web stack on GCP

Ease of use is one thing. I have clients that can benefit from cloud based solutions. They may have a typical hosting account with some name brand hosts but for various reasons I find myself getting annoyed and deciding I’m moving them to the cloud.

I move them to Google Cloud Platform but only temporarily because I know that when I leave them (I’m just a freelancer) they’ll be lost. If they

What Is Domain Authority Why Should I Care?

 

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.

When Keyword Ranking Requires A Pass

Keyword Ranking is ultimately the goal of every SEO and Adword campaign.  I was invited to an Upwork project this past week, I always like being invited and generally I try to make the project work. Someone out there noticed my efforts and wants to hear from me.  It is unfortunate though when I feel I have no other choice but to decline the invite and not submit a winning contract.

A new site was seeking proposals for ranking at the top of search results using only organic search. I love a challenge
