What Will Happen if You Alter the Title, Description, Links of a YouTube Video That is Already Ranking?

By April


 

In Hump Day Hangouts episode 65, one question was about the potential impact of changing the title, description, links, and tags of a YouTube video that is already ranking well.

The exact question was:

What's your take on altering YouTube video Titles, Descriptions. Tags or Links – AFTER they've ranked well? Does Google hate minor tweaks or monetization efforts after the fact?

Also wondering: Do long-standing, well-clicked videos on Page One tend to move from Exact to Broad(er) match queries if they stand the test of time??

Over-Optimizing and Geotagging of Images for Citation Sites, GMB Sites, and Blogs

By April


 

In episode 65 of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, someone asked about geotagging and assigning location-based keywords to images that will be submitted to different local citation sites, Google My Business (GMB) pages, blogs, and other media.

The exact question was:

Hi guys hope you're doing great, got a very exiting question about images for ya : )

Can you over optimize images on your money site with keywords and geo tagging and stuff like that and do you geo tag the images you use for your citation sites, GMB pages, branded networks, etc. plus having the site name in the metadata of the images aswell, is that too much?

Thanks.?

If a client has multiple locations with a page for each location on their site, would I need to create an IFTTT T1 for each location or would I create 1 IFTTT to the homepage?

Using Twitter-Based Recipes in IFTTT

By April


 

In episode 65 of the weekly Hump Day Hangouts, someone was asking about the Twitter-based recipes in IFTTT.

The exact question was:

Hey guys, there have been discussions suggesting we use our Twitter channel as our main feed and set up a set of IFTTT recipes which posts our tweets out to all our web 2.0 properties. Are the twitter recipes something additional to standard RSS triggered recipes that we should be using? How exactly should we be using Twitter based recipes in conjunction with our regular approach? Just trying to understand whether or not there have been any changes along these lines by you guys or if we just stick with the same formula. Thanks?

Best Practices in Ranking Ecommerce Websites That Have Been Stuck at the Bottom of Page 1

By April


 

In Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, particularly in Episode 65th, one question asked was about tips and strategies on how to improve the ranking of an e-commerce website, which has been in the bottom of the first page for quite some time.

The exact question was:

I do SEO for a large and successful e-commerce website. We've seen some great results with rankings… some of our most targeted keywords, however, seem to be stuck at the bottom of page 1, top of page 2. I have a branded IFTTT network (we update the site with News 2 times a week and a Podcast once a week) and we do regular outreach (we have some great high authority links). What would you guys do from this point on to move those keywords up from the bottom of page 1, top of page 2?

Signs That You are Hit by Google’s Content Duplication Issue

By April

During episode 64 of Hump Day Hangout, someone asked about content duplication issues and citing article source on a money site.

The exact question was:

If I copy and paste half a news article from another site as a blog post for my site, and I remove the original articles outbound links, plus cite the source with a “click here for more information / click here for original article” can my site get hit by Google for a duplicate content penalty? Should I just add a conical tag to the “click here for original” link to be safe? If I do add a canonical tag does that affects the links I add to the article that point back to my $ site inner pages? Thanks again guys.

301 Redirection of Domains with Unrelated Niche

By April


 

In episode 64 of Hump Day Hangout, one participant wanted to know the number of 301s that is allowed for redirecting domains with unrelated niche.

The exact question was:

I have four unused PBN's and now moving more towards TTF they don't really fit in with the target market I am going after. I want to double 301 these (existing unused PBN 301 to an expired related domain then 301 to a new highly related TTF PBN that I will build an IFTTT ring around as a Tier 2 property).

I know URL shorteners work well but I prefer to have it at least link to a related site before ending up at the target one.

I have tried to try to make it look slightly relevant ie. .co.uk domains all 301 to another .co.uk domain but the sites themselves are completely unrelated.

My question is, how many 301's into a single domain is safe and does the above setup sound ok or would you suggest a different strategy?
