Indexing Videos Published in Vimeo

By April

During Episode 56 of Semantic Mastery's Hump Day Hangout, one participant asked about Vimeo having a so-called sandbox for each account since he wasn't able to see his videos.

The exact question was:

Is there a sandbox for new Vimeo accounts? I created an account, uploaded 2 videos and 5 days later not indexed by Google. I embedded the video on a webpage that I know was crawled by Google, did a Google plus post and a Twitter tweet with the URL of the video the same day the videos were uploaded. In the past, this method has always worked with YouTube, and all videos get indexed in a day or less.

A friend of mine did a Fiverr gig for 50 video embeds on crappy 2.0's like Blogspot, Delicious and Diggo and didn't notice any ranking change with the video. I think Google ignores these types of sites when trying to pass link juice to a website but it seems to have always worked with videos. Any change to the algo? I think there is a shift from the shear number of embeds to the quality of the site the embed is on but he was surprised to see absolutely no change?

Multiple Subdomains for Multiple Cities

By April


At Episode 56 of Hump Day Hangout, one question was about creating multiple subdomains to integrate multiple keywords that also target cities and neighborhoods.


The exact question was:


Hope everyone had a great turkey day! I also hope I'm not drifting too deep into the weeds here. So here it is: If I am creating 50+ sub-domain local niche sites, each focused in different geographic locations for rank and rent, and all of which originate from one “parent” domain, do I treat each sub-domain as a complete, separate web site apart from the “parent” domain with its own “money site” curated content (Curation Mastery) and IFTTT Network, OR,  can I use the same “money site” curated content source and IFTTT Network used for the “parent” domain, and treat the sub-domains more like pages? I'm doing local niche + city + neighborhoods. There are 55 neighborhoods in this city, and each neighborhood is a sub-domain. I'm confused about how best to approach this.

Then there is PLAN B. Scrap all the above, and just rank and rent ONE website for the ENTIRE city! Not as much profit potential, but boat loads less time consuming and hassles. Ha!

Redirection: Its Effect on Ranking and Link Juice

By April


As mentioned in the previous webinar, one thing to do to protect your money site is through redirection. In connection, a participant at the episode 55 of Hump Day Hangout asked about how it could affect in terms of ranking and in passing link juice.


The exact question was:


Hi , Just found a video where you spoke about building own asset and redirecting link to clients site for protection. Will the client site move higher in rankings with our redirect or they are just benefiting from extra calls etc.

Link Sculpting: Is it Important? Is it Effective?

By April

A participant at the Episode 55th of Hump Day Hangout asked about the importance of an SEO strategy called link sculpting, which was popular few years back.


The exact question was:


How important is link sculpting these days? If it's still relevant, how do you deal with less important pages on your website. For example would you no-follow your navigation / terms / privacy links? Off page, when you are trying to pass authority from a facebook page to your website, do multiple links to other sources partially dilute the authority??

What is Video Power House?

By April


During the 55th episode of Hump Day Hangout, one member asked about Video Powerhouse and how it can improve video content rankings and SEO. Getting powerful embeds from domains with real metrics (Trust Flow, etc) play an important part in your video marketing and it's power in the search results.

In the video above, you can get a better idea of how this super powerful embed network can help you with your video marketing. Not only does the Video Powerhouse system feature fast and automatic posting to high quality domains that are themed, monitored, and more, every single domain in the network is surrounded by a Semantic Mastery IFTTT Network with its own persona and social media sites!

What does this mean for you?

This means that for every post to Video Powerhouse you are getting more video content embeds and backlinks from authority sites by a real persona that provides tons of power and authenticity. Sounds good, right?

The exact question asked during the webinar was:


I signed up for Video Powerhouse and excited to get started and test. I was wondering if you could elaborate further on the service so I can translate what is going on to customers and prospects in terms they can understand. I assume everything else needs to be in place for maximum effectiveness such as channel and video optimizations? Anything else? Thanks! ?

Adam: Marco, what's up?

Marco: Hey guys, what's up?

Adam: Bradley, how is it going man?

Bradley: Good man. Good. Glad to be back.

Adam: Cool. We're going to roll with a little bit longer Hump Day Hangout for you guys today. Hopefully, you saw the email earlier. Before we hop in to it, we got a few announcements to go through. The big one, hopefully you saw the email went out about an hour ago. We want to give you a heads up before the Hump Day Hangouts of the Semantic Mastery, Black Friday sale. That's going to be available through Monday. After I get done with the announcements here, I'm going to pop that link into the event page, so you could check that out. We got some pretty cool specials going right now, so you …

Bradley: Just to be clear, that starts today. We're actually starting a couple of days early so that we can run through Monday. Is that correct?

Adam: Yeah because I told Bradley I didn't want to be putting coupons in on Thanksgiving Day. I'm going to be eating turkey and having fun. We're starting it a little early. As soon as we paste a link in there, you can check it out if you want or wait until after Hump Day Hangout, go check it out. A lot of the courses are discounted, we've got the network sales going on. If you've been thinking about yourself an IFTTT network now is the time. Get 20 % off on networks, I'm not sure if we've offered any discount on the link building.

Bradley: This will be the first time yeah.

Adam: This is the first time for the 20 % discount on the link building packages which is pretty sweet. We've got that and then of course we've been talking about Costa Rica. We've opened up and gotten some feedback. We're going to have a live event in Costa Rica in February 2016. There's so much to talk about, it's hard to get started. I'm going to drop that link in there. I'm going to let everyone talk about it because there's a lot going on here. I don't want to just read the sales page to you or tell you everything that's going to happen. This is live training. It's in person, it's three days, it's an all inclusive resort.

We're covering everything from bringing in premium customers with funnels, local SEO's. We've got guest speakers, I saw that picture. We've got live Q&A with ourselves with the guest speakers. We've got a brand new course coming out which is, to use a little bit of a cliché, it’s going to be a game changer. This is going to be something big for 2016. I'm going to grab those links. If you guys want to add onto that, by all means. I'm just scratching the surface here.

Hernan:  Sorry to interrupt but the main idea is that you get one on one time with us. Not only for the teaching itself which is going to be great but also for the networking side of it. I think that's also going to be big. We are spending a lot of time to actually do the networking side of things and the network side of things. Besides the learning the tips and tricks and the groundbreaking technology that Marco and his math scientists are developing. We also want to really interact with you guys and discuss business ideas and what not. That's something big.
