By April

Mobile-friendly is a good ranking factor according to Google. Hence, one of the questions being asked at the Episode 52 of the weekly Hump Day Hangout was about converting Yola sites into mobile-friendly.

Adding Pocket Links to G+ Page

By April

In the weekly SEO Q&A of Semantic Mastery, particularly in the Episode 54, one of the questions asked is the proper ways on how to integrate links from Pocket, an RSS aggregator.

The exact question was:

Is there a way to add Pocket links to the G+ page and About page? The current Pocket account creation has changed and they do not allow you to use an email account anymore. They make you sign up with Twitter or FB. Also, once the account is created they do not give you a profile URL (at least I can't find it) because of that. Wondering how to connect everything now since there is no profile URL??

Network Management Pricing: How to Set the Correct Rates?

By April


Having a network that you have full control of can be one of the best assets an SEO entrepreneur could have. One of the questions being asked during the Episode 54 of Hump Day Hangout is about the pricing for managing multiple networks.

The exact question asked was:

Loving the Masterclass so far! Question on IFTTT continuity programs. I've got a good grip on pricing for setting up the networks. But not afterwards. Can you give some pricing examples for both network monitoring and content marketing? Assuming both One Tiered Network and a Two Tiered Network. Thanks!?

Adam: Hello everybody, and welcome to Hump Day Hangout. This is episode 54. Today is November 11. Happy Veterans Day to everybody out there. Real quick, we want to say hello obviously, and we got some great announcements. We'll get this started. How's it going Hernan? [inaudible 00:00:53]

Hernan: Hey everyone. Hey Adam. It's really good to be here. [inaudible 00:00:17]

Adam: Hey Marco what's up?

Marco: Hey everybody, what's up?[inaudible 00:00:22]

Adam: Last, but not least, Bradley how you doing?

Bradley: Good man, good. How are you?[inaudible 00:00:26]

Video Power House

Adam: Good, good. Can't complain. It's been a busy week. We've just been putting the finishing touches on getting Video Powerhouse ready to go. We're happy to say that it is live. I'm going to be dropping the link in here and you guys can go sign up right away.

This is the embed network that we've been talking about for the past couple months. The story behind this, if we haven't told you, is basically we were looking for ways to go about and get our own video embeds for ranking our own videos. We've been checking out some products that are out there, and not to name names or anything, but we were very unsatisfied to put it nicely with what we found available out there.

We've put together what we would we would call a pretty killer network. This is very powerful. These are real sites that have metrics and are surrounded by IFTTT networks that we have built. All right, this is the same type of stuff that we provide through our own network services. I'm going to pop the link in there. Again, we've been talking about it so I'm not going touch up to much on it but by all means if you're interested in ranking your videos I highly suggest you check this out.

Bradley: I do want to mention, it's going to be a limited release because it is a new network. We don't want to overload it, so we're only going to be allowing about 50 people in. Then, we're going to shut it down so we can make sure it's running smoothly with 50 people in it. Just so you guys know, there was a waiting list and everything else. We're opening it up, but it's going to be a limited thing. It's not a scarcity thing we're doing, we're actually doing that specifically so that we can make sure we can handle the volume and work out any bugs because it is a new network.

That said, we're going to be reinvesting in that network to continue to build it out. Right now, it's just a general marketing video embed network in other words, you can pretty much embed anything besides what the typical no-go things are like Farma, porn, that kind of stuff. As we start bringing customers in we're going to reinvest in the network and build out at least five top level category themed networks, plus the general network. We'll end up with six, each having it's own minimum of 100 sites as the tier one, plus 20 web 2. This is part of the IFTTT rings around each one of those. It comes out to be 100 tier one embeds and 2,000 tier 2 embeds. Embeds backlogging social signals, that sort of thing per network.

We're going to have essentially five top level categories like health and wellness, construction/home services, business/financial, those kind of top level categories. Just so you guys are aware, currently it is not a themed network. It is just a general network. We're going to use that while we continue to build out the other high level categories. Obviously, as that continues to get developed we'll be giving out notifications of it as well. Do you want to add anything else to that Adam?

How to Correct GPlus Badge Not Showing in for Blogger Blogs?

By April

One of the participants in the Episode 54 of Hump Day Hangout asked why does his GPlus badge is not showing in his Blogger blog, which is connected to the IFTTT Networks.

The exact question was:

HI Guys. I have been setting up Blogger accounts for IFTTT networks, and when I go to set up the G+ badge, the ID number in both the G+ profile & the G+ page (URL’s) are both the same number, so the Google + badge won’t come up.
Did Google change the url’s? Or am I doing something wrong, or by chance did I miss a update?

Here is an example of the latest account I’m trying to build out, as you can see the ID numbers are the same. But yet both addresses work to each page.

Best Practices on On-Page Optimization and Protecting Money Sites

By April

In Episode 54 of Semantic Mastery's Hump Day Hangout, one of the participants asked about the best practices on On-Page optimization as well as in protecting one's money site.

The exact question was:

Can you please go over how you do on page optimization? Also, when purchasing services on fiverr or source market how far out do you go to protect your money site. For example, would you purchase a domain stacking service and use that on a tier1 which has direct links to your money site??

Is it Important to Check Backlink Indexing Rate?

By April

One of the questions being raised in the Episode 54 of the weekly SEO Q&A Hump Day Hangout is about the importance of indexing, particularly the backlinks generated from the FCS Networker and GSA.

The exact question was:

Hey guys… My question is regarding indexing and the importance of it.  Over the years everything I have learnt in SEO has suggested that indexing is everything and if the links your building are not getting indexed they are worthless.  The problem I am noticing mainly with my indexing rates is in getting FCS & GSA links indexed (which I am using to power up my IFTTT network) and also some of my IFTTT posts.  I currently use backlink commando plugin, backlinks indexer and when I check the indexing rates using inspyder backlinks monitor and scrapebox I am noticing some very low indexing rates.  I also use the google indexing tool but its simply not practical for large numbers of links

QUESTION:  Do you guys actually check or even recommend checking the indexing rates of your backlinks and how important do you feel it is to get them indexed.  I may have heard one of you say they will still pass link juice if they are not indexed but how much emphasis do you guys place on the monitoring and indexing rates?  Would really like to know whether I am overthinking this whole indexing thing. Thank you all for providing such excellent training!

By April

One of the attendees of the Episode 53 or Semantic Mastery's Hump Day Hangout has mentioned about keyword issues based on the results given to him by an online tool called Free Grader.

I ran on my domain. Main Heading and Site Keywords failed. I have Yoast SEO installed- How do I fix the main heading and keyword issue?

What to Do When You Want to Request Additional Client Budget?

By April

One of the particpants of the Episode 53 of Semantic Mastery's Hump Day Hangout asked about dealing with clients when you want to request additional budget for an existing SEO campaign.

The exact question asked was:


Most of the services I use to rank my clients' websites are subscription based. So that means that I need to keep paying them every month to maintain my rankings.

However, I've noticed that when I start working on a new client's site, the first 4 to 6 months rankings skyrocket but then reach a plateau.

My problem is that I don't have any more budget to create more links so I now need to tell my clients that if they want to rank even higher, they need to invest more money.

What would the solution be to avoid that kind of situation?

Should I stop renting links completely to reallocate that budget to create new FCS networker /GSA links each month??
