By April

The exact question was:

Happy New Year and thanks to all the Semantic team for these HDHOs- looking forward to another great year.

As Google phases out the goo.gl shortener (closing March 30th), their replacement is Firebase Dynamic Links, which, in addition to a link destination, can also have a builtin title, description and image for social media. What are your thoughts on these – will you use these in place of goo.gl? Are there any SEO advantages from keywords in the title, description or image exif data? Thanks.

By April

The exact question was:

New Battleplan executor here… looks a lot like what Howie Schwartz used do in the early days of IM, great stuff.

My question lies in having enough vs doing more than necessary and getting slapped

I am a YouTube-based affiliate marketer starting in a new market. for this I have setup one email address which I used to create over a dozen other web properties and implemented the battle plan. I’ve also siloed my YouTube videos as per the bonus.

my question is… is that enough or should I be creating more and more web properties like I am keyword based content ? Or can this one network, with silo’d videos on YouTube, provide me enough horsepower and bring traffic to my videos?
