Optimizing For Site Speed: Page Load To SEO Cloud Server Infrastructure

TrueInfluence.com has been an Ultimate SEO client for several months now. During that time a central project has been to deliver the companies web pages in three seconds or less.TrueInfluence is a data intelligence marketing organization. IntentBase is a product of theirs and they are focused heavily in lead generation and demand generation. The TrueInfluence site scored the expected failing grade with Think Google, Pingdom and GTMetrix.com. It also failed GTMetrix in site optimization. In the end it took up to twelve seconds to load their homepage of multiple layers of graphics and animations.Predicting a company's next clients is a data driven science. They consume 60 million pieces of data a day to fuel that intent data. As a B2B lead generation provider they are in a highly competitive world but their site speed wasn't doing them any favors.It is typical though where a technology focused organization becomes hyper focused on ...

Guest Posts To Ultimate SEO Sites

Just today I received a long email complimenting me on the site (which one I dont know) but they always conclude with a suggested mention of site xyz.com and its article on the matter.  And I appreciate those and do feel that the value of this site increases with the more diverse information.  But its diverse information that adds value, me going into an existing article to add a competing link is not really provided a diverse view of the subject just an additional exit page from this site. Theres actually a lot of these messages that filter in throughout the week. If I spend the time to add the links where they want it would probably consume half a day read messages, finding article, review their link, add it to mine and now to the next.  Its also questionable how long that material is going to be up before ...

Finding The Question Is The SEO Keyword

Picking The Best Keywords For Your Site

What is the best burger in town? Thats your keyword, not your burger brand. Keywords For Google Ranking SEO efforts always start out with the simplest goal. Every web site wants to rank for their name. UltimateSEO.org for instance, most people would say how does it rank for Ultimate SEO? But thats honestly not of any value, think about it ... the only people searching Ultimate SEO are those who already know about you. More likely you're the only one searching your brand name unless your a huge company. Finding Your Keywords Your name is what I call a vanity keyword. Others will call it a "Branded Keyword." It would be great to rank for it but its only for your peace of mind. In a recent election I had to explain to the candidate that ranking for his name would be nice but wouldnt he rather rank for every ...

CCPA, GDPR, 2020 And What They Mean To Your Site

CCPA AND GDPR Shoulda Made It On Your Radar by now, but I bet it hasn't.  At least based on the random 24 sites I visited today.  Nearly three in four sites have no CCPA or GDPR mandated announcements. WHAT ARE COOKIES From the early days of the internet you've received cookies.  Cookies are a small text file that identifies you to a site once you visit it.  Now how does it identify you?  Not specifically in and of themselves, think of them as tokens.  Or prize tickets ... the token or ticket doesn't have to have information directly about you it could be just a number. Say you visit my site I give you a cookie and it has a number I assigned to you.  Your 777.  You come back a day later and your computer shows your cookie and I know that 777 was here yesterday so you've ...

Google Analytics And Adwords In Data Studio

Previously we've discussed Google Data Studio as a possible Wordstream Alternative and in Google Data Studio Knows Everything SEO, Or It Can we've noted to ability to combine different data sets from Google Search Console, Google Analytics, Google Ads and more. These combined data sources allow us to produce rich graphs that are easy to understand but key to website performance and search engine positioning. In this article we're going to look further in the implications for your digital marketing strategy when PPC is fueled by Data Studio. Data From Multiple Sources To Improve Your CPC Campaign Adwords ads are priced along some similar factors as SEO.  The landing page experience is the prime example.  If Adwords or Google Ads determines your user experience is going to be poor it penalizes you by charging more .. many times more driving up your ad costs.

What is SEO? SEM SMM and even SMO

Each of these four domains of knowledge are collectively Digital Marketing.  Digital Marketing is the promotion of online content to targeted audiences. Search Engine Optimization or SEO SEO is the oldest domain of Digital Marketing.  Don't be fooled though by the length of time this has been around.  SEO is fluid and often changes making the methods of five, ten or twenty years ago worthless, if not a liability. Search Engine Marketing SEM is the second oldest and can be called PPC or Pay Per Click.  PPC is actually a form of SEM you could pay per impression or pay per conversion.  The key commonality of SEM methods that seperates it from SEO is that it is paid. Social Media Optimization or SMO Social Media is a ranking factor and it has been for sometime.  SMO is the counterpart of SEO but rather than Search Engine's the target is Social ...

Disavowing theglobe.net bad backlinks from Sweden

theglobe.net What's worse?  The crappy website they have with no content and just super spammy links or the fact that you nor I ever asked for that bad backlink?  The fact that the charge to delete a link to you at $35 a link shows how they crash your backlink party.  But hey, Google knows this right, they wouldn't hurt your site still...wrong! Monetized Bad Backlink Site With Spam Links I wish we could collect money like a nonprofit from SEOs everywhere and raise the $10,000,000 asking price of theglobe.com and just turn it off.  Why is it I hate theglobe.com so much?  Cause their links are bad. Previous to this post I've always said don't use the Disavow Tool unless facing a manual penalty.  Its the Google answer ... but I tried something, disavowed a few hundred domains all connected to theglobe.net and over the next 3 weeks I ...

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.

Technical SEO: Digital Ocean vs Google Cloud vs AWS

This post originally only focused on cost and user experience when we reviewed DigitalOcean vs AWS vs Google Cloud.  After a real world case study and experiment we have some performance data and it is actually surprising. Before testing servers I recall stating in a conference call "We all know AWS is gonna win, but ya we can test it."  As a client's IT team wanted to move our project team's DigitalOcean web server on to one platform.Teaser here ... in a head to head test between Digital Ocean vs AWS one of these  two out performed the other in:
  1. rate of requests handled
  2. number of requests processed
  3. time it took to process each request. 
  4. The same winner of those also won 10 / 10 page speed tests and the results were not close.
The results of these tests convinced a previously skeptical client's IT team into adopting the team's choice in cloud providers.Scroll down to the ...

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 ...

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  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.

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 ...

New Google Backlink Types And SEO Value Of NoFollow Links Changes

Two things are important for you to take away from this post about backlinks and they are listed right below.  We've then included Google content explaining these two changes in backlinks.  If the text is italic and navy blue, its quoted from Google.
  1. User Generated Content or Sponsored Backlinks Added Are two additional rel="" tag options introduced by Google.  UGC Sponsored can be used together or separately in an attempt to show a difference between the two backlinks.  Nofollow remains a link option but if the link isn't a paid advertisement or User Generated Content yet you want to ensure if is not seen as an endorsement you may still use No Follow as an attribute.
  2. 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 ...

The goal of their site was to help drive local foot traffic, but a growing mobile population made their desktop site seem antiquated.With the move to mobile devices in full demonstration the old RomanticDepot.com site was not responsive.
