Hey Guys… now, I knoooow this has been said before, but I was listening to an SEO I respect and claimed that Google Drive Stacks no longer pass link juice and no longer get indexed.

By April

 

In Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts episode 266, one viewer asked if one should push more juice to the city pages to improve the page's ranking.

The exact question was:

Hey Guys, I have a question about all of your strategies being used for the same site but different cities. So I have a client that I am ranking on page 1 in 17 of the 24 cities they have in their county. I'm not able to get them in maps in as many cities however. They only have one location and I'd like to start pushing them up in maps in more cities. Would you just push more juice to the city pages?

Do NoFollow Internal Links Save More Juice For DoFollow Links?

By April

In episode 131 of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one viewer asked if nofollow internal links save more juice for the other internal dofollow links.

The exact question was:

Other quick one: nofollow internal links really “”saves more juice”” for the other internal dofollow links? Or just avoid sending them their “”part”” of linking juice?
(I mean, 1 follow and 1 nofollow the follow would get only get 50% and the other 50% would be lost).

What Are Some Best Practices For Keeping The Backlinks And Link Juice From An Old Site To A New One?

By April

In the 114th episode of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked about best practices for keeping the backlinks and link juice from an old site to a new one.

The exact question was:

Hi all, one of my clients has a website ranking well, however we are building another new site for them and copying their old site content and articles over. We plan to give the old articles a facelift (making sure it´s optimized well), and updated with new images that are even more relevant for the market today. Both sites are now live, but the old site will soon be closed. We currently link from the old site to the new one, and eventually we will 301 from the old site to the new. Can you give us any tips on this kind of process and work, whats the best way to do this, and make sure all their backlinks copy over, and we maximise link juice etc?
