Backlink Building We 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 […]
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

It Takes About 3 Months To 6 Months To Rank #1 On Google
In the world of politics everything seems to be able the last week of an election, after that its over. In the business world you have to keep going after a certain defined date to remain in business. Political SEO requires keeping in mind the business world because in Google ranking they are your biggest competitors and the other candidate is likely just as I was talking with a politico kind of friend in the last two days about the need in getting in contact with any
Awhile back I picked up a domain name that had expired called UltimateSEO.org its Domain Authority is a respectable 36. Some companies work years to build up to that level and its branding isn’t that bad either. SEO is in the name afterall. MatthewLeffler.com could just as easily belong to the other Matthew Leffler’s that I constantly fight against to rank highest on Google. Be it the lawyer, the tennis pro or even the sex offender in Florida. (Shame on you for dragging our name down)
MatthewLeffler.com is a DA23 which is respectable for less than a year old
Gutenberg sounds like the place that a hard fought battle took place in Europe maybe during the “Great Wars” or during the Middle Ages but Gutenberg is not connected to history its the name given to the new WordPress editor that WordPress 5 brings to the blogosphere.

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
Hindsight is 20/20 and given the findings of the report below every campaign in 2016’s house races in the study, who relied solely on Facebook pages to represent their campaign’s online presence, would likely build a WordPress site now. No one who had just a Facebook presence won in 2016.
There are a lot of reasons this could be true, but one fact remains … Do you want to replicate the losers in the last cycle? Visit my Political SEO site to learn more about what I have done for campaigns and candidates in 2018.

Anyone who knows me knows I love visualizations. I’ve been working on SEO strategies for a site and the beginning of any good strategy is understand the site and quality of its content. Some studies suggest 60% of people think in pictures…that is to say if I said the word “cat” some people will see a cat and some will see the letters cat. Its hard for visual people to grasp complex concepts such as “millions” its harder to produce that word in a visual way in your mind. Similarly when we think about a web site its often hard
I am happy to be working with a repected tour site a site that blends history, patriotism and tours in Hawaii’s Pearl Harbor. Principally I am concerned with increasing the ever important backlinks to propel the site to the top of Google page rankings.
Backlinks are where unrelated sites link to another, giving it relevancy in Google’s eyes. They are like votes of confidence. Keywords have lost their stature in SEO because too often sites capitalized on the over use of a keyword mkaing the content poor for users and only good for search results.
The way your page is optimized can have a huge impact on its ability to rank.
What are On-Page Ranking Factors?
On-page ranking factors can have a big impact on your page’s ability to rank if optimized properly. The biggest on-page factors that affect search engine rankings are:
Content of Page
The content of a page is what makes it worthy of a search result position. It is what the user came to see and is thus extremely important to the search engines. As such, it is important to create good content. So what is good content? From

This post is part of a consultation series that we’re doing along with our friends at The Next Web and Trend Hunter. Each of the three sites has picked a company that’s effectively utilizing new technologies to get them ahead in their space. Here’s our take on The Next Web’s pick, CloudFlare:
CloudFlare is the internet you’ve never heard of. More than just a content delivery network, the service optimizes massive chunks of the web for delivery, screens out
I’ve shared a Google Data Studio Report about Louisville crime over the last 10 years that I made in an effort to demonstrate some of my reporting and data experience. The target audience for this is Upwork contracts that I am seeking to pick up.
Its a cool tool though that I’ve used to make a lot of helpful reports. Its populated real time from an SQL server I have running on Google Cloud Platform. I’m more proud of the Louisville Voter Data Report but I think it would be a mistake to share that out there with everyone. Heres
I’ve begun a revamping of matthewleffler.com, which has been the same as my mattleffler.me site. I decided it was important to demonstrate WordPress use and diversify my personal domains. mattleffler.me continues the HTML5/CSS Bootstrap site while matthewleffler.com provides a card style WordPress implementation.
These are in essence portfolio pieces that Upwork projects can view when I propose a new contract. My work with Brent Ackerson for Jefferson County Attorney concluded last week but I’m maintaining the sites built as part of the portfolio of work I’ve done in cloud computing, hosting, web design and SEO.
