Is It Okay to Syndicate Content to PBN Websites with SameAs Schema?

By April


One of the questions asked during episode 77 of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts was about the syndication of content to PBN sites with SameAs schema.

The exact question was:

Let's say I had a really powerful PBN, or a powerful site I possibly declared as a “sameAs” using schema. Would you recommended syndicating blog content to this property, even though it is not branded the same as your main money site? I would provide proper attribution, however I'm wondering if there would be a downside to doing this.

Kinda of like using a Blogger for example, but a non-branded, powerful t1 site. Thx

Does Links With Keyword+Neighboring City Boost A Google Business Map Ranking?

By April


In episode 77 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one viewer asked if links that optimize keyword+neighboring city can boost the ranking of a Google Business map page.

The exact question was:

I've got a business ranking in maps for the city its located in, and it also shows up in map results for a neighboring city, just not in the top 3. Could building a few links to the site using “keyword+neighboring city” as anchor text boost the maps position? Or does anchor text only effect organic results?

Can You Use Schema Markup Without Physical Location?

By April


 

In episode 77 of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one viewer asked about the use of schema markup for businesses with no physical address.

The exact question was:

Hey guys, got one for yas.

If I'm creating a national style website and wont be having a physical location for all locations, does that mean I can't use schema mark up?

I heard you say that it wont validate if it doesn't have a physical address, is there no way to still use it, for the same as attribute or something like that for example or am I totally screwed? Thanks.

By April


During episode 77 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked if using IFTTT network can increase a website's trust flow.

The exact question was:

hi guys would you say IFTTT networks in general increase the main websites trust flow? because thats what would be cool but looking at the semantic mastery website which uses a lot of networks and the trust flow at root is 7 and citation 25 – i have a 2012 penguin hit site that has a higher trust than that which is worth asking why and i think a lot of people would benefit from the info 🙂

Is There A Duplicate Content Issue For Web 2.0 And Social Sites With Syndicated Content Via IFTTT?

By April


 

In episode 76 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one viewer asked if there will content duplication issues for websites that syndicate content to their social media sites using IFTTT.

The exact question was:

Afternoon, Bradley! Thanks again for all your work. You guys are the best out there!

I'm concerned about duplicate content if I implement the IFTTT SEO Academy plan – is it safe and do web 2.0 and social sites like the content? Will my web 2.0 and social sites get taken down if they see duplicate content?

Is It Aggressive To Add Link On Citation Pages?

By April


During episode 76 of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked if it's too aggressive to add more links in a citation page.

The exact question was:

In a post that we add to our main blog website, is it ok to add a few links out to our citations? When the post is syndicated to the IFTTT properties this would add a dozen links from our properties out to our citations. Is this a good thing to do or is it too aggressive?

I am wondering if it is safe to add links to all the IFTTT network properties in the sidebar of blogs like weebly? Thank you.
