What is Syndwire and How to Use it With IFTTT?

By April


 

During episode 67 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one question asked was about Syndwire and how to use it with IFTTT.

The exact question was:

Can you explain the basics of Syndwire to me and how I could use it with IFTTT? Thank you for all your hard work, guys!?

In the video, Bradley discusses that Syndwire is a syndication tool that is useful in syndicating content in IFTTT including social media, social networking, and social bookmarks. Unlike IFTTT, Syndwire is a bit of a manual syndication since one is required to log in to the dashboard and create content. Bradley does not recommend using Syndwire to money site but he suggests to use this content syndication tool to 2nd tiers and youtube videos embeds. Hernan added that Syndwire is useful for Web 2.0 as well as in social media sites. Another alternative to Syndwire is OnlyWire.

How Does Press Releases Help in Diluting Anchor Texts?

By April


 

In episode 67 of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one of the questions asked was about the impact of using press releases on diluting anchor text density.

The exact question was:

Hey guys. Could you briefly explain to me how press releases help dilute anchor text, when 90% of the links you get are nofollow. Does the anchor text count towards your backlink anchor profile but not for ranking a particular keyword since the press links are nofollow and don't pass KW relevance? Thanks again. ?

By April

The exact question was:

Love the idea of ranking multiple pages in easy niches and renting them out by overlaying someone else's site, looks like a good way to generate some quick revenue, do you think Google will be able to work that one out and what precautions would you take if you were to do it? Thanks?

Multiple GMB Listings for a Store Front with One Physical Location

By April


 

In Semantic Mastery's Hump Day Hangouts episode 66, a viewer asked about creating multiple local listings to different cities within a metro for a storefront with only one physical address.

The exact question was:

I have a client with a store front that people can visit in one city – it's their one and only physical location. We want to get 3-pack listings in other cities in the metro area surrounding this location. We plan on using PO Boxes with street addressing so when we setup the GMB pages for these cities we would choose not to display the street address. We would also use different phone numbers for each GMB page. Does this make sense to do for a client? Are there any downsides to doing this??

SameAs Schema for Multiple Twitter & Google Plus Accounts of a Multi-Division Company

By April


 

In Episode 66 of the weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one question asked was about creating SameAs schema for multiple Twitter and Google Plus pages of a multi-division company.

The exact question was:

I have a client that is a division of a very large company. I'm wondering if I can add SameAs schema for multiple twitter and google plus accounts. One account being the division and the other account is the main company account. The company owns divisions in many different industries so I'm also wondering if I would gain / lose trust flow because of the broad topics and if the multiple accounts wouHi Semantic Masters, my question is in regarding Schema. I have a review portals built on WordPress. When inputing into Google's rich snippet tool (https://developers.google.com/structured-data/testing-tool/) I get the “All Good” message. What is maddening is that the rich snippets (star ratings) will only show with the internal pages (reviews) in the SERPS, but not the home page (aggregated reviews) which is what most searchers find when they do a branded search for my customers. So customers are now asking why aren't the stars showing up? Wondering why this is happening? Does Google ignore home pages of sub domains? Here is a screenshot >>> http://www.screencast.com/t/C6D0dvkI0jQl Thanks!?ld confuse google.?
