Series of posts over the next few months to say what I’ve found works and what doesn’t in SEO. So this is installment 1 in Top SEO Tools I Use.
So this is somewhat of a product endorsement piece but its also worth sharing with others what you’ve found useful and hopefully they’ll let you know what they have found useful. So Tools I use and even a few I don’t and why. No the first tool has NOTHING to do with keywords but more importantly everything to do with deciding what your keywords are … if you think my life revolves around keywords you really need to catch up. Backlinks and anchor text are the hardest things to control and often the most impactful. Consider….back in the 2000s Miserable Failure was backlinked to George W Bush’s White House biography page by so many websites that he ranked number one on Google for Miserable Failure. Now I guarantee his site had NO SEO or optimization for Miserable Failure but he held that spot until a counter wave of links went to Jimmy Carter. Then Google manually shut the term war off. Its backlinks that make or break a sites ranking.
You can optimize all day long on content choices and keywords but if the rest of the world doesn’t think you are that in their links neither will Google. So the product is essential. It trends your links and competitors and its just $25 a month. Here are screenshots I have taken from time to time to include in reports to clients.
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 to grasp the links and relationship between a sites pages. Sure we can create a boring flow chart but it often has to be over simplified and lacks a good representation of the sites content.Recently while working for https://pearlharbor.org I found a tool that created some really useful visualizations of the site and the sites pages with linkage between them. I believe the software limits its linkage to 10,000 which is astounding. The site offers information and Pearl Harbor tours while serving as a memorial that includes a page for all the survivors. My focus with this site is to make SEO recommendations and ensure the effective utilization of social media in improving site ranking.Read More
Guest Blogging Sites For Backlinks
After you’ve tried writing on your own site and all you pulled in was your mother and an aunt it may be time to try taking your message on the road. Guest blogging involves you writing content but rather than posting it where no one will see you post unique content as a guest writer to a more popular blog hoping it brings attention to your own site through backlinks.I havent actually tried this yet but I can see its usefulness if you can gain a do follow link.Read More
It Takes About 3 Months To 6 Months To Rank #1 On GoogleIn 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 campaigns for November now … he seemed puzzled and said we had three months and most campaigns are just starting. That may be fine and dandy for yard signs and television commercials but online everything needs to be in place before you want it. That means now.I will grant you that Jefferson County Judge Executive isn’t a highly sought after keyword. But then who is going to Google that keyword closer to the election? If you thought that was the keyword for that office, you’d be wrong. You need to stop thinking of proper nouns as good Google keywords. I’ll pin a conversation about keywords at another time but for now focus on timing.Read More
