duplicate content kills seo

Duplicate Content Kills Your SEO

Duplicate content is a threat to your SEO rankings but not in the way you think.  It is distracting you from stuff that actually matters.  Google has no penalty and notes much of the web is duplicate content, the question is whether your use of the content ads value. Google noted over ten years ago that its not an issue. Let’s put this to bed once and for all, folks: There’s no such thing as a “duplicate content penalty.” At least, not in the way most people mean when they say that. Google Webmaster Central Blog 2008 Duplicate content doesn’t cause your site to be penalized. If duplicate pages are detected, one version will be returned in the search results to ensure variety for searchers. Google Webmaster Central Blog 2007 “Lots of duplicate content exists on websites, and often it’s not a pressing problem.” In the video provided by Google …

Updates That Matter AND Updates That Don’t :SEO Basics

This post was originally made 3/7/2019 but was lost during a restoration from backup while Ultimate SEO was dealing with a DOS attack.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 …

Trace Route Network Tool, Only On A Map

Tracert in SEO: Can Help Ya Track Your 301 Redirects Tracert is a command thats elementary to networking and computers.  Trace Route or Tracert does exactly what it sounds like, and its useful cause it tells ya every ip address it passes through between the server and the catcher (not technical terms there).  It explains where speed issues are in a global perspective or in your home. Its usually just text but https://www.monitis.com/traceroute/ made it more fun…and from this map I can see why my fiber connection isnt seemingly very fast tonight, I’m being routed through London, England to do a domestic “hop” (hops are each leg of a journey in a tracert …

Free Auto Blogger / Autoblogger Using RSS Feed Content

A Free Plugin For Auto Blogging CyberSyn (AKA CyberSEO and CyberSEO Lite) doesn’t know I’m writing anything on them and this isn’t a paid endorsement, I use their product on about 100 domains and its worked perfectly for me, its a free full text RSS feed to post plugin available through the WordPress plugin repository. Most RSS Feed to Post programs don’t work or only do half of the needed process for free. CyberSyn does it all. I have a domain that is of little value and I think I got it for 1.99. I turned it into my distribution center. Lets call it example.com. I then create categories for the types of articles I’ll be posting. So let’s say our categories are News, Farming, SEO, Cooking and Finance. By making these categories I now have 5 categories or 5 RSS feeds of my own, in addition to the site’s …

UltimateSEO.net Launches As Sister Site Focused On Free SEO Tools

UltimateSEO.net Is Live Hosting Free SEO Tools Ultimate SEO has gotten a little more ultimate.  We continuing to offer our SEO information and topical articles and plan to expand into indepth discussions of stuff at the most minute details.  Great for those of us who love metrics and but our metrics are only as good as the tools we can access.  SEO tools are plentiful and almost all are expensive.  The best tools focus on one aspect of SEO and do that well but effective SEO campaigns are holistic and can’t neglect other foundational tool categories.  Having the best backlink tool won’t make the best SEO Site Audit.  It takes multple tools, often overlapping and many cost hundreds of dollars a month.  Thats why we’re launching UltimateSEO.net FREE SEO TOOLS SITE SEO Tools are abundant but hard to find interestingly enough.

CVS File Merger

Easily take multiple csv files and merge them together using this free online tool. Export any SEO data from multiple sources and put them together in one document. CSV files may not support multiple sheets. As an SEO Aficionado myself ( ya I bought that .com when I saw it open) I do it too. I sign up for this tracking tool and that one and I crawl my sites with this tool and another and before we know it we have 17 sites with data that would all look so much better if it were together.  So you can use Google Data Studio with csv files and rather than handling 17 files maybe you’d like to force them into one document?  The tool above can offer some help there. Its not particularly the most intelligent tool…but I once had to run csv files for 100 precincts and afterwords of …

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. A few disclaimers: Domain Authority is not a Google creation it is from Moz.com and it is their educated guess at how Google see’s your authority.  But it is not Google’s so remember that.  Secondly I am going to go over this in a higher level and use some half truths for simplicity.  If you want the whole truth just read the articles or Google the topics discussed for greater detail.  Finally, most …
