Is There An SEO Ranking Advantage To Host A Local Business Site On Amazon S3 Compared To A Regular Hosting Provider?

By April

In the 261st episode of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked if there is an SEO ranking advantage to host a local business site on an Amazon S3 compared to a regular hosting provider.

The exact question was:

Hi Guys, . . . I hope that you're healthy and wealthy (smile) . . . . I recently heard that there is an seo ranking advantage to hosting a local business site on Amazon S3 instead of a domain on a “”regular”” hosting provider, is there any truth to that or is there no real difference? . . . . And, does Google have a similar platform like Amazon S3, and if so, what is it called and would hosting the site there provide any seo ranking advantage over a “”regular”” hosting provider? . . . . Thank you VERY as usual for your help, it is greatly appreciated

How Do You Sell Your Domain To A Prospect?

By April

 

In episode 261 of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one viewer asked how do you sell your domain to a prospect.

The exact question was:

Hi guys, I have the following question. I own a .com domain that I purchased 3 years ago for a marketing agency project that then got postponed because I focused on other projects. Despite I would like to keep the name, the website has little work done (SEO wise) and I've recently found an european agency with the same name and branding but a .ie extension. This company seems already quite established and was created after I got the .com domain. Considering all these, I would like to contact them and offer my domain for sale. Any ideas/tips on how to approach them and propose an initial number? I know that the domain per se is not that valuable, but given this situation I may squeeze some money ouf of this. Thanks in advance!

How Far Out Should You Schedule A Live Event Using OBS?

By April

In episode 261 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked how far out should you schedule a live event using OBS?

The exact question was:

Hi. I plan to use OBS to broadcast a pre-recorded video as a live event. How far out should a live event be scheduled to be most effective? Can it be just a couple days rather than a week? Also, is scheduling a live event for ranking purposes rather than just uploading a video still as effective as it was a few years ago? (I have watched your OBS usage video from 3 years ago – thanks for that one. It is very clear and helpful).

By April

 

In Hump Day Hangouts episode 260, one participant asked how to get more traction for a 3k Scholarship program apart from having a landing page, email blast, press release, and 5 college links.

The exact question was:

For one of my clients, we created a 3K ‘scholarship”” program. I made the landing page, had someone scrape university emails and then we reached out to them announcing our program (with hopes of getting placed onto their sites). I did a PR thru Press Advantage as well. We have had about 5 links come in from it from colleges but had hoped for more. Is there anything we can do to get better traction?”

How Do You Deal With A Prospect Who Thinks That Following Free Online SEO Checker’s Audit Will Get Him Massive Traffic?

By April

In episode 260 of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked how to deal with a prospect who thinks that following the free online SEO checker's audit will get him massive traffic.

The exact question was:

Hey guys, I hope you enjoy your anniversary. The SM crew has gotten me through more than my fair share of scraps. Between HDHO and MGYB, I have unmatched power on my side. I know it's just a matter of time before I see you guys at the next POFU. Question: a client of mine just found one of those SEO checkers online that do basic audits of sites. Suddenly he thinks it's just a matter of following that checker and he gets massive traffic. I explained to him those are very basic and only cover a few things, but it seems to fall on deaf ears. I don't feel right having the agenda dictated like that. The obvious solution is POFU, but I'm not there yet. Should I just deal with it until I can drop him?

By April

The exact question was:

Hope every one of you is doing well. My life goes in circles. I need money so I pick up a few projects, optimize and enjoy the benefits and stop working. I just chill enjoy life, spend all the time with family, then some shit hits the fan (usually keyword drop cause of competition) and it is all over. I want to have consistency. Can you recommend good literature or a method that will change my mindset and keep me motivated even during good times? Thanks, guys you are awesome.
