What’s Your Preferred Order For Creating A Google Drive Stack, Syndication Network And Press Releases?

By April

In episode 171 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked whether there is a specific order the Semantic Mastery team prefers for creating a Google Drive stack, syndication network, and press releases.

The exact question was:

BB & Crew,

New client, brand new website, starting from scratch. Wedding venue niche.

Am just finishing onsite : titles, metas, headers, alt tags, content, etc.

Looking ahead to offsite. I know that the following will be part of the mix: Google Drive Stack, Syndication Network and Press Releases.

Is there a specific order you prefer to create these in? And, if so, what's your preferred order and why?

I'm sure you gone over this stuff in the past, since this is something that occurs on a regular basis. So if this has been answered on another HDHO, just point me in the right direction.

Also, when will you be releasing the Press Release training? Please feel free to pimp it now!

Thanks.

The exact question was:

Is there any information you can share with regards to how much time between releases, links you tend to include, etc? Hopefully this doesn't infringe on info shared with Mastermind members, because unfortunately I'm not one.

I know…I should be!

Shoud You Post A PR Article On Your Site First Before Publishing It To PR Sites?

By April

In episode 138 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked if you should post a PR article on your site first prior to publishing it to PR sites.

The exact question was:

Ok, let's quickly get down the business! Quick one: when publishing a PR that links to my money site should I post the article FIRST on my site, let it index then send the PR with a link back to THAT post, so it will work like the post was sindicated from my MS or no need to post first on the MS, just blast the PR?

A Quick Review on PressCable Press Release Service

By April


In the 72nd episode of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked about the performance of PressCable when it comes to distributing a press release (PR).

This type of content use can be highly beneficial for brand awareness, backlinks, and anchor text dilution. There are many services out there and one HDHO viewer wanted to get the most out of his remaining credits – by getting some quick links or other benefit from the service.

You can check out SerpSpace high quality PR service here: https://www.serpspace.com/marketplace/press-releases/order-press-release/pr-sales (log in or sign in with your free account to get started).

The exact question was:

You mentioned in a video you have used PressCable Press releases but didn't think they were that good. I have some credits there I have never used. My cost for each is around $30 and I think we can include an image and a video in them now. I plan to write them in a good PR format. I am wondering how much confidence I should have in their press releases?

Of course, the PR service that you use will depend on what you need – be sure to look around and use the service that best fits you, or your clients, needs.

How Does Press Releases Help in Diluting Anchor Texts?

By April


 

In episode 67 of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one of the questions asked was about the impact of using press releases on diluting anchor text density.

The exact question was:

Hey guys. Could you briefly explain to me how press releases help dilute anchor text, when 90% of the links you get are nofollow. Does the anchor text count towards your backlink anchor profile but not for ranking a particular keyword since the press links are nofollow and don't pass KW relevance? Thanks again. ?
