Any specific strategy or precaution when linking internally on blogs with branded syndication rings?

– the ones syndicated to blogs already have a link back to the post and to the home; (OK)

– the other plataforms links back just to the post; (OK)

– if I add any other link (maybe 1-2 internal links on post) they will also generate MORE backlinks from the blog plataforms. (PROBLEM?)

Should You Stream A Video Poked Via Live Rank Sniper To A Money Channel Or Persona Channel?

By April

In episode 131 of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked if a video poked by Live Rank Sniper video should be streamed to a money channel or persona channel.

The exact question was:

When using Live Rank Sniper it is my understanding that the thumbnail, title, description, etc are placeholders. It is also my understanding that I should use a persona Youtube channel to poke. So when streaming the video I want to rank into the position held by the poking placeholder can I safely stream to a money channel or a channel I value highly or do I have to stream it to a persona channel? Do I accomplish this by just streaming it right through LRS or do you recommend some other method of streaming?

Are There Any Risks To Having Too Many City Subdomains?

By April

In episode 131 of the weekly Hump Day Hangouts by Semantic Mastery, one viewer asked if it’s risky to add too many subdomains that point to each city for a company in multiple locations.

The exact question was:

I have a Client that has locations in several spread out states (ie. TX, FL, CA), so creating any kind of “City Pages” on the root (clowncollege.com/miami-juggling clowncollege.com/dallas-juggling) doesn’t make sense. Obviously all actual (GMB) locations will be subdomains, but other supporting cities (without GMB) will also be subdomains, are the any risks to having “too many” city subdomains?

When you consider ServPro has a domain for every city in the country with 98.35% duplicate content I am sure I over think the “”safety”” aspect when it comes to local, but I appreciate the help nonetheless.

How Do You Combine Two Brands In An Existing Affiliate Site?

By April

In episode 131 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked how to optimize and combine two brands in an existing affiliate site.

The exact question was:

I have an affiliate website promoting several companies. An important page promoting the top company ranks very well. But that established company has now partnered with a worldwide known Brand (which itself has not previously had any of its own products in this niche).

Similar example would be if Gary Fisher Mountain Bike Company partnered with Nike and still makes and markets the bikes but the Nike Brand name will be on all the bikes. The company website is still Gary Fisher with its same Gary Fisher models, but the Nike Brand name is now on the bikes and website pages.

I need to have both company names on the same page. Web Searches will continue using the original company name for at least several years but there are now new searches in this niche for the Huge Brand name.

My current page URL slug contains only the name of the original company. Would you create a new page using a slug with both company names and redirect the old page to that new page? Just change the H1, H2 and some of the text to add in the 2nd Brand name on the current page?
