Last night we celebrated my girlfriend’s birthday at Mastro’s Steakhouse. The food was amazing! When it comes to steak I can normally finish what is on my plate, but that was pretty much impossible yesterday evening. The fillets are bigger and better than anywhere I’ve gone before. The sides were also amazing. If this sounds redundant than you should of heard us last night lol! I guess we are foodies at heart!
Today I am back at work day dreaming about the food we ate last night. Maybe that’s because I am still in a bit of a food coma. I’ve got my eye on one auction, looking forward to seeing what happens with it.
Here is the list for today! Enjoy!
Last night we watched Blue Jasmine. It was one of those movies that you didn’t want to see end. The writing and the acting was seamless. Definitely check it out if you haven’t already. Tonight, we are celebrating my girlfriend’s birthday. I’m looking forward to it, but I can’t say anything else about it because she reads this blog.
Here is the list for today! Enjoy!
Affiliate Summit West 2014 Session Recap: Writing Pages to Rank in the Search Engines Hosted By Adam Riemer
As some of you know I attended Affiliate Summit West 2014 at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas. It was completely different from the conferences that I’ve attended in the past. I’m used to the comforts that a traditional domain conference tends to provide. This year is all about stepping out of my comfort zone, even if it causes me to stand in line a little longer to check in.
Affiliate Summit West 2014 was jam packed with people and with that comes disorder, but once the structured sessions started all of the disorganization fell by the waste side. On the first day of Affiliate Summit I had the chance to attend a session called Writing Pages to Rank in the Search Engines. The person speaking at this session was Adam Riemer, the president of Adam Riemer Marketing, LLC.
One of my readers requested for me to share information about the conference and today I’m finally getting around to doing just that. Here are a few notes that I jotted down while I was in the Versailles Ballroom watching Adam give his presentation:
When you link out to things which are relevant to your site, Google tends to give favoritism to this.
Don’t use press releases for your back links.
Google tends to know when you are stuffing keywords, so be cautious when doing this.
Look out for news wires that have a good distribution. An example of this would be one which is niche based. Adam didn’t provide a specific news-wire, but he did say he uses one which is focused on charity news.
You use press releases to get information out, don’t use them to build back links.
Do Follow Vs No Follow – No Follow everything is crap. If every link is a no follow it looks bad. When it is relevant content give the Do Follow link. No Follow is designed to say this site is not relevant. Use the proper No Follow plugin for your internal linking structure.
Having a good mix of natural versus unatural links is extremely important to making Pengiun happy. You must switch up the anchor to get ranking for specific terms.
Google will penalize you for ads that are above the fold. They are looking for usability.
Create a folder which can redirect to your affiliate links.
Do not use url shorteners for your affiliate links because some of them are now affiliates. You can be losing a sale by doing that. There was an example where an automonetization tool was turning an affiliate’s links into their own links via the url shortener. If you use disquis they use those automonetization tools so beware of them.
What is the goal of your page. Solve the intent of the user who is visiting your site. Create more than one page based on intent. How can you help the visitor? Are you providing a solution for the user.
Even if FB is supposedly not viewed by Google, more shares can help your search engine ranking. Make sure you have your shares accessible and readable.
What questions have you answered that other sites have not answered.
Use keyword tools like Trellian and SEMrush. Rank for long tail keywords.
Gets likes, comments and shares.
Does the traffic convert to sales?
Go into social sharing buttons and include these messages in it: Find info on it here. Every reader can share the social sharing button. Follow me or follow this person.
Social site that bounces is a very bad signal for Google. More page views help rank. Visitors staying on the site for a long time also helps.
Is it the experience that is expected after the search query is performed.
Keyword density in content will vary, but should be around 2% – 4%. Continue to test to make sure that works and keep track of it using plugins like Seo Pressor. Sometimes the percentage can go as low as 1% and as high as 6%, it really depends on the page you are optimizing. 2% – 4% would be considered to be on the high end.
Authorship tags are important.
Google Plus Profiles will also help you with search engine rank.
Internal linking structures are good for telling Google that this page should be ranking for this keyword. Do not confuse Google and link out to those same keywords. Using keyword rich internal links is safe. Leave breadcrumbs for Google and give them an idea of how things are linked.
Use full urls in your css versus shortened urls.
–This is where Adam’s presentation stopped and he started taking questions from the crowd. –
One person had a question about categories and tags in WordPress.
Don’t go above 8 categories, make sure the tags are relevant to the site. Tags can be long tail keywords and questions. 3 – 5 tags on an article is fine. You can go up to 8 to 10 tags. There’s no need to have an archive.
Make categories relevant. Is it going to add value? Does it match content. Don’t go overboard, you don’t want to spam. Use commonsense and ask yourself if you are going overboard.
Another person had a question about duplicate content.
Every single aspect of the page is what it actually is. You can block those keywords, you can hide those words and you can source it. You can change up the H1 Tags.
Google Authorships, how do you do that?
Content curation, do it if it is relevant or if it is providing value. Look for niche pr distribution services. See when they post and when they publish. You will need to have content that appeals to them. Change your content every quarter, freshness and update dates are key. Don’t bother updating pages which are doing well. Look at posts from 6 months, 1 year, 2 year and see how they are doing. Only change if they are not performing for you.
If you are telling Google you have made a change on your site you could lose your rankings. Why change whatever is working for your site? Track any and all updates that you’ve made to it.
I walked into this session a few minutes late and was blown away by all of the information provided in it. Although I feel SEO is important to any site, in my opinion it really comes down to the methodology of if you build it and take time to hone in on what your potential visitors want, then they will visit and reap the benefits. These days, it is all about creating resources that help people. The days of writing content simply to trick the search engines are over. Quality versus Quantity has never been more important.
Adam Riemer’s website is www.adamriemer.me and his twitter is @RollerBlader. I want to personally thank Adam for sharing a great deal of quality information in such a short amount of time!
I’m headed out of the door, so there isn’t much time for me to share any thoughts this morning. A little later today I will post the first blog entry on Affiliate Summit, so make sure to check out the blog later today. You might also notice that I am reducing the amount of categories I have here on the site, once you read the blog entry later today then you will realize why.
Here is the list for today! Enjoy!
I’ll make this quick, since the auctions started around 13 minutes ago. There are a few names in the list that I like and a couple that I didn’t include because I plan on bidding on them. Is it me or will this be one of the best Super Bowl matchups that we’ve seen in a while? Sorry, I can’t seem to get the game off of my mind.
Here is the list for today! Enjoy!
This is my Friday and I’m looking forward to enjoying it. It’s been an interesting week. I’ve decided to stop writing about the individual sales that I have made here on the blog and on Facebook. There are certain things that are important to keep private. Sometimes I can see how it can come off as bragging or showing off. I initially decided to publish some of my sales because I felt it was a motivating factor for those out there that are just like me.
This is an amazing industry, you can sell domains and making a nice profit doing so even if you have a full-time job. I should know, because that is exactly what I have been doing. Since I still do feel that it is a motivating factor, I’ve decided to keep that motivation internally. I tend to share the news with family, friends and business associates. In addition to that I am going to start writing about some of the sales that I made last year and this year in my newsletter. The first newsletter will be released in February, so make sure to sign up on the right corner of this blog! Use any of the information I publish as a way to motivate your domain sales!
Here is the list for today, enjoy!
I’ll have to make this quick today. I’ve been thinking about the domain conferences that I’ve attended over the years and I have to admit they have all had their positives and negatives. If there was one thing that I feel a domain conference could work on, it would have to be structured networking sessions.
I feel attendees should be randomly paired up with individuals that they probably wouldn’t talk to. You’d be amazed the things you can learn when this happens. It’s all about stepping out of your comfort zone and sharing knowledge.
Enough food for thought, here is the list for today!
