What Are Your Insights On YEXT For Local Citation?

By April

In episode 114 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked about the team’s insights on YEXT’s local citation services.

The exact question was:

Quick citation questions – any insight on YEXT? Good, bad, indifferent… How negative is the outcome when cancelling a contract in regards to citations and any “”NAP damage?”” Also seems like some of their sites have do follow links, esp to FB and Twitter. Is it just worth it for a company to keep their monthly subscription or dump it. Any other recommendations?

By April

In the 114th episode of Semantic Mastery’s weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked about best practices for keeping the backlinks and link juice from an old site to a new one.

The exact question was:

Hi all, one of my clients has a website ranking well, however we are building another new site for them and copying their old site content and articles over. We plan to give the old articles a facelift (making sure it´s optimized well), and updated with new images that are even more relevant for the market today. Both sites are now live, but the old site will soon be closed. We currently link from the old site to the new one, and eventually we will 301 from the old site to the new. Can you give us any tips on this kind of process and work, whats the best way to do this, and make sure all their backlinks copy over, and we maximise link juice etc?

The exact question was:

Semantic Mastery Crew! Hope all is well. I have a follow up question, I asked this a while back and what I asked was should I noindex my blog category page as it has a summary of the blog posts and I didnt want any duplicate content issues on my site and you advised to noindex it so I did And that works well for my lead gen sites because I dont care about ranking the blog but I’m about to set up an affiliate site and would like to blog to rank. Should I still noindex it and forget about ranking my blog or is there something that can be done?

How To Use RYS To Rank Sites Without Google Verified Business Pages

By April

In episode 113 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one viewer asked about how to use RYS to rank websites that do not have Google verified business pages.

The exact question was:

Hi guys
I’m back from my trip to the Philippines and have alot to catch up on.
First I want to comment on the RSS Masher. I got the program and put it into action and its working great on all of my T2 networks. I like it, and time will tell how it performs producing traffic and ranking.

My question is on RYS again, I have had the best success with the service with my clients, and now I want to use it on my own sites. I am building out “”near to me”” sites. I have one site that will pay $141 per click when I get ti ranked.
Without the Google verified business pages for each one, without NAP, ect., How can I use and incorporate RYS to help get these sites ranked?
And a follow up question is; After I get the stacks back, what can I do with the stacks to increase the rankings and visibility?

Happy New Year to everyone, This is going to be the Year!!!!

What Are Some Best Practices For A Double 301 Redirect For A Lead Gen Site?

By April

In episode 113 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked for tips on how to do a double 301 redirect for a lead gen site.

The exact question was:

Hi guys, happy new year, hope you had a wonderful christmas period! Got a 301 question for you and would love some advice.

I dont know if you have heard or used serp drive but it basically does an expired domain crawl for you, like a blue chip backinks style crawl, and one search is just $12 so I’m considering doing 1 or maybe 2 301 redirects to a lead gen site, any advice or best practices would be awesome, I know this may be more mastermind stuff but even a sly hint would be great, ya dont have to give the farm away although I suppose we would let you give it away just this once if you must : ) Thanks guys
