Using Twitter-Based Recipes in IFTTT

By April


 

In episode 65 of the weekly Hump Day Hangouts, someone was asking about the Twitter-based recipes in IFTTT.

The exact question was:

Hey guys, there have been discussions suggesting we use our Twitter channel as our main feed and set up a set of IFTTT recipes which posts our tweets out to all our web 2.0 properties. Are the twitter recipes something additional to standard RSS triggered recipes that we should be using? How exactly should we be using Twitter based recipes in conjunction with our regular approach? Just trying to understand whether or not there have been any changes along these lines by you guys or if we just stick with the same formula. Thanks?

Best Practices in Ranking Ecommerce Websites That Have Been Stuck at the Bottom of Page 1

By April


 

In Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, particularly in Episode 65th, one question asked was about tips and strategies on how to improve the ranking of an e-commerce website, which has been in the bottom of the first page for quite some time.

The exact question was:

I do SEO for a large and successful e-commerce website. We've seen some great results with rankings… some of our most targeted keywords, however, seem to be stuck at the bottom of page 1, top of page 2. I have a branded IFTTT network (we update the site with News 2 times a week and a Podcast once a week) and we do regular outreach (we have some great high authority links). What would you guys do from this point on to move those keywords up from the bottom of page 1, top of page 2?

Signs That You are Hit by Google’s Content Duplication Issue

By April

During episode 64 of Hump Day Hangout, someone asked about content duplication issues and citing article source on a money site.

The exact question was:

If I copy and paste half a news article from another site as a blog post for my site, and I remove the original articles outbound links, plus cite the source with a “click here for more information / click here for original article” can my site get hit by Google for a duplicate content penalty? Should I just add a conical tag to the “click here for original” link to be safe? If I do add a canonical tag does that affects the links I add to the article that point back to my $ site inner pages? Thanks again guys.

301 Redirection of Domains with Unrelated Niche

By April


 

In episode 64 of Hump Day Hangout, one participant wanted to know the number of 301s that is allowed for redirecting domains with unrelated niche.

The exact question was:

I have four unused PBN's and now moving more towards TTF they don't really fit in with the target market I am going after. I want to double 301 these (existing unused PBN 301 to an expired related domain then 301 to a new highly related TTF PBN that I will build an IFTTT ring around as a Tier 2 property).

I know URL shorteners work well but I prefer to have it at least link to a related site before ending up at the target one.

I have tried to try to make it look slightly relevant ie. .co.uk domains all 301 to another .co.uk domain but the sites themselves are completely unrelated.

My question is, how many 301's into a single domain is safe and does the above setup sound ok or would you suggest a different strategy?

When to Stop Investing When it Comes to Ranking Videos?

By April


 

During Episode 64 of Hump Day Hangout, someone asked about when to stop putting money in different optimization efforts for a video that has not been ranking.

The exact question was:

Does there come a time where you stop throwing good money after bad at videos that are still ranking on page 2 and 3? I have customers that are paying me $300 per month to rank videos and have done everything from optimizing videos, using silos as taught, setup a branded Tier 1 and 3 Tier 2 IFTTT networks around the channel, tried SAPE links with one (actually decreased rankings), purchased multiple contextual link packages pointing the Tier 1 IFTTT branded network, retweets, reblogs, video ads (in stream & in display), commented on high authority related videos with links back to playlist, etc. etc. Between the time and $$ being spent, I am losing and just wanted to know if there is a time to throw in the towel or is there still hope??

Missing Livestream Accounts in IFTTT Channels

By April


 

One participant of Hump Day Hangout episode 64 asked about missing livestream accounts like Flavor.me and Paper.li in IFTTT.

The exact question was:

Hi guys, My question is about the IFTTT live stream accounts. Did we lose Flavors.me and Paper.li to be able to connect the other accounts/links to?(for free) Paper.li if you pay you can connect 5 accounts. Haven't open any of the live streams for new networks in a while and some of the accounts have changed their platform?
