Can you tell me, what's the difference between a syndication network and an RYS stack? Syndication network via IFTTT looks like a great way to push new content out. Not sure what an RYS stack is or how it works in conjunction with syndication network. Can you explain?

How Do You Check The Stats For People That Click On The Video Tab In Search?

By April

In episode 148 of the weekly Hump Day Hangouts by Semantic Mastery, one viewer asked how to find out the stats for people that click on the video tab in search.

The exact question was:

We have a potential client asking what the stats are for people that click on the video tab in search. Their comment was “”I don't know anyone who searches the video tab for anything other than how to do something.”” They are only worried about organic rankings, which eventually can happen with a video but not always that quickly.

We've tried to find info on stats for the video tab, but nothing really comes up. Does anyone have any insight on this? Maybe a good way to answer this question?

Is It Ok To Link To A Related Article And The Top Page In The Same Post?

By April

In episode 148 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked whether it was advisable to link to a related article and the top page in the same blog post.

The exact question was:

A few weeks ago you guys advised to include some variation in simple silos, and link to other articles in the category rather than the top page all the time. My question is, can I link to both a related article and the top page in a post? Or should I stick to one link?

How Important Are Hyper Local Citations?

By April

In the 148th episode of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked about the importance of hyper local citations.

The exact question was:

How important are hyper local citations? I mean the ones where there's a bit of effort to go through to get them, like calling the company, getting papers ready, waiting a while, and all that. These are mostly newspapers and tourist directories, so they have no online registration. Is the result worth the effort, or should I be satisfied with the regular, quicker citations that I get from BrightLocal?

How Can I Get A Thumbnail That Points To A Video Embedded On My Website For Better Ranking?

By April

In episode 148 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked if there's a plugin that would display a thumbnail that points users to a video embedded on the target website for better ranking?

The exact question was:

Do you have info that will show me how to rank on first page of Google with my website.

I see lots of rankings that show a thumbnail and when you click it you will be taken to your website where you have a video embeded.

Is there a plugin or course that I can use to accomplish this?

Below is an example:

Google: local plumbers in nashville
Go To: Videos

O'Donnell Sewer & Water Worth – Plumbers – 26 Ratings – Consumers …

When you click the title or image it goes to their website where the video is embeded. This can be a video on Vimeo, Video Motion, etc.

When you click they go to the website.

I am wanting to put videos on my website, and have it ranked on the first page like these.

How Would You Recommend Switching The Page That Ranks For A Local Term?

By April

In episode 147 of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked for advice on switching the page that ranks for a local term.

The exact question was:

How would you recommend trying to change the page that a local term is ranking for? For example, I'm working with a local jeweler who's homepage (branded) is ranking for city + jeweler. He only has one location at the moment but has plans to open other locations in other cities. Since we're building out local landing pages for each location, I'd like the inner page to rank for the local search terms, not the homepage.
