Adding Pocket Links to G+ Page

By April


In the weekly SEO Q&A of Semantic Mastery, particularly in the Episode 54, one of the questions asked is the proper ways on how to integrate links from Pocket, an RSS aggregator.

The exact question was:

Is there a way to add Pocket links to the G+ page and About page? The current Pocket account creation has changed and they do not allow you to use an email account anymore. They make you sign up with Twitter or FB. Also, once the account is created they do not give you a profile URL (at least I can't find it) because of that. Wondering how to connect everything now since there is no profile URL??

By April


 

Having a network that you have full control of can be one of the best assets an SEO entrepreneur could have. One of the questions being asked during the Episode 54 of Hump Day Hangout is about the pricing for managing multiple networks.

The exact question asked was:

Loving the Masterclass so far! Question on IFTTT continuity programs. I've got a good grip on pricing for setting up the networks. But not afterwards. Can you give some pricing examples for both network monitoring and content marketing? Assuming both One Tiered Network and a Two Tiered Network. Thanks!?


How to Correct GPlus Badge Not Showing in for Blogger Blogs?

By April


One of the participants in the Episode 54 of Hump Day Hangout asked why does his GPlus badge is not showing in his Blogger blog, which is connected to the IFTTT Networks.

The exact question was:

HI Guys. I have been setting up Blogger accounts for IFTTT networks, and when I go to set up the G+ badge, the ID number in both the G+ profile & the G+ page (URL’s) are both the same number, so the Google + badge won’t come up.
Did Google change the url’s? Or am I doing something wrong, or by chance did I miss a update?

Here is an example of the latest account I’m trying to build out, as you can see the ID numbers are the same. But yet both addresses work to each page.

Is it Important to Check Backlink Indexing Rate?

By April


One of the questions being raised in the Episode 54 of the weekly SEO Q&A Hump Day Hangout is about the importance of indexing, particularly the backlinks generated from the FCS Networker and GSA.

The exact question was:

Hey guys… My question is regarding indexing and the importance of it.  Over the years everything I have learnt in SEO has suggested that indexing is everything and if the links your building are not getting indexed they are worthless.  The problem I am noticing mainly with my indexing rates is in getting FCS & GSA links indexed (which I am using to power up my IFTTT network) and also some of my IFTTT posts.  I currently use backlink commando plugin, backlinks indexer and when I check the indexing rates using inspyder backlinks monitor and scrapebox I am noticing some very low indexing rates.  I also use the google indexing tool but its simply not practical for large numbers of links

QUESTION:  Do you guys actually check or even recommend checking the indexing rates of your backlinks and how important do you feel it is to get them indexed.  I may have heard one of you say they will still pass link juice if they are not indexed but how much emphasis do you guys place on the monitoring and indexing rates?  Would really like to know whether I am overthinking this whole indexing thing. Thank you all for providing such excellent training!

What to Do When You Want to Request Additional Client Budget?

By April


One of the particpants of the Episode 53 of Semantic Mastery's Hump Day Hangout asked about dealing with clients when you want to request additional budget for an existing SEO campaign.

The exact question asked was:

 

Most of the services I use to rank my clients' websites are subscription based. So that means that I need to keep paying them every month to maintain my rankings.

However, I've noticed that when I start working on a new client's site, the first 4 to 6 months rankings skyrocket but then reach a plateau.

My problem is that I don't have any more budget to create more links so I now need to tell my clients that if they want to rank even higher, they need to invest more money.

What would the solution be to avoid that kind of situation?

Should I stop renting links completely to reallocate that budget to create new FCS networker /GSA links each month??


Fixing Issues with Tumblr and Other Web 2.0s in IFTTT Networks

By April


During Episode 53 of Hump Day Hangout, one question raised is about issues with Tumblr templates and other Web 2.0s in the IFTTT networks.

The exact question asked was:

Hey Guys..Having a a couple small problems with my first IFTTT network. 1) Tumblr does to NOT let me enter the HTML into the description area under the title to add our links to the Google Plus About page and our Blogger account. Everything else went fine until I tried adding the “<br><ahref=”https://plus.google.com/b/116025903679913075163/116025903679913075163/about” after the brief description that was already there under editing. The above code actual shows up on the Tumblr page as you type it in the editor now. Click “Save” then refresh the page and and the html all shows up under the description as text along with the description and no hyperlinks. When Bradley did the training the code never showed up but the other text did as it should.  2) WordPress is giving me a problem with verifying my WordPress site for Gravatar. Blogger , Google+ and YouTube went just fine. Rechecked all emails and passwords three time and tried re-verifying a few times. They were all entered correctly. No luck. The following message in quotes appears when the verification fails: “No Blogs Found – Either your WordPress Blog is not Responding or it's not listing any of the blogs against the account details you entered. Please check that the username/password you entered are for an account which is associated with at least one blog.” Thanks for your recommendations…wasn't on last week but watched the replay…thanks for all the great stuff on Tier 2 link building and correct structuring… really helped me make sense of a lot of questions I've had for a while. 🙂 Ed?
