Does Marking Up A Review As An Article Make It Lose Some Of Its Review Authority?

By April

In episode 202 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one viewer asked if one should use an article or a review schema markup for the pages of a site that are mostly reviews of brands.

The exact question was:

Hi Guys. My site is siloed with the top category pages mostly being reviews of brands. A few pages rank in the position 1 or 2 for “Brand review” but around position 5 or 6 for the brand name.

I am adding markup to those pages and wondering if it is better to mark them up as Articles or Reviews? If marking it up as an article- does it lose some of its review authority and vise versa? Thanks.

Will An IFTTT Network Ring Around My Youtube Channel For Uploaded Videos Be Triggered By A Live Event?

By April

In Hump Day Hangouts episode 202, one participant asked if an IFTTT network ring around a Youtube Channel (that is triggered by video uploads) will be triggered by a live event.

The exact question was:

If I create an IFTTT network ring around my Youtube channel so it triggers whenever I upload a video, does this also apply to live events? If I create a live event first before I stream to poke long tail keywords before I commit will this trigger the IFTTT and create all those branded backlinks to my live event.

Is It True That The Benefits Of Using Press Releases Are Only Temporary?

By April

In episode 202 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked about Semantic Mastery's thoughts on the notion that the benefits of using press releases do not last very long.

The exact question was:

Hi Guys 🙂 . . . . . Thanks again for the help you provide on Hump Days, it is GREATLY appreciated 🙂

I read an article recently from an “”expert”” who says that the benefits from using Press Releases do not last very long as the media sites used for distribution do not want excessive content on their sites and “”clean”” out previously posted Press Releases on a regular basis.

Is this true, and if so, what is the “”typical”” time period that a Press Release remains “”alive”” before it is “”cleaned”” from the posted site? 🙂

Thanks again,
Gordon
