How To Use Crowdsearching With Networks

By Semantic Mastery

A viewer during HDHO Episode 45 had a question about how to correctly use microtask workers in a CTR type program such as Crowdsearch.me (https://semanticmastery.com/crowdsearchme) with IFTTT Networks.

These types of tasks involve using micro task workers to search for your site (website, web 2.0, IFTTT Property, or anything else) with a specific search string and to then click through to your site and do any additional tasks. You can, and should, use a variety of search strings as always going for keywords is not a good long term plan – you can use other branded search strings and more to make these tasks more realistic in terms of searches performed.

Watch this short video for more information on putting Crowdsearch.me to good use and how you can get the most out of this powerful tool.

The viewer's exact question from the Hump Day Hangout was:

How deep into a my network should I use crowdsearch? Is it on every property on every wheel, or just the google properties?

Pushing Videos To Higher Ranking After IFTTT Syndication

By Semantic Mastery

 

 

During Episode 43 of our weekly free SEO Q&A webinar a viewer had a question about what needed to be done to move a video that had been previously syndicated to a higher position in the search results.

They were not sure if more time was needed, additional off site SEO was required, or what to do…

Here's their question:

So I've gone through the IFTTT training and have created all the properties as described, did the RSS feeds, did the livestream, added ongoing content to the blogs and uploaded my first video. Blogs have been active for about 2 weeks.

Ranked #6 on YouTube and nowhere to be found on Google for the video. Just wondering the next steps or if i need to let more time to pass. The YouTube account is not verified if that makes a difference.

Part of helping out the video rankings included telling the viewer about the power behind playlists in YouTube – you can find out more with our detailed short course on this very topic here: https://youtube.silo.academy


How To Syndicate Existing Videos To Networks

By Semantic Mastery

Last week, during Episode 39 of our weekly Humpday Hangouts, we had a question from a viewer – one that has come up frequently.

Lots of people wonder how you can deal with getting existing videos to an IFTTT Network.

Perhaps you have added new properties to the network or maybe you already had videos on your YouTube channel and now want to ensure they go out onto your web 2.0 and social properties.

Good news! It's a fairly simple process, although still a bit manual, to get your videos syndicated out onto your network for a boost in ranking power. Check out the video to find out how you can take care of this and be ready for the next time it may happen.

By Semantic Mastery

 

 

With Video Ads Crash Course 2.0 being released, we wanted to let people know what the differences are with this product and Video Ads Bootcamp, another great YouTube advertising course from Justin Sardi and Zane Miller. Both of these courses offer you entry into the world of YouTube advertising where they have had incredible success using super cheap ads to generate a huge ROI!

Video Ads Crash Course 2.0

In this video, Bradley and Adam discuss the differences between the two courses and why you might be more interested in one over the other. The short answer is that the Crash Course 2.0 is meant to be just that – a crash course in YouTube advertising (where you can get clicks that convert for pennies) while the Video Ads Bootcamp is more in depth, offers coaching calls and one on one mentoring to get you in depth YouTube ad training and a deep working understanding quickly.

Additionally, you can get Bootcamp with the Tubesift option, which is the software that will help you save a ton of time when finding videos to display your ads on.

Proxies in Firefox and Chrome

As I am in Firefox w the proxy, does chrome open under my IP or the proxy IP?

Throughout the IFTTT SEO Academy training, you keep the workbook open in chrome with your own google account. i just want to make sure there is no conflict doing this as we build our networks… and so, is it vital that I clean chrome and stay out of my own google every time i use proxies in firefox?

Cloud Storage Sites for IFTTT Networks

Building Quality High Links Fast

3:00 In your opinion what would be the easiest way to accomplish this where I can set up an automated campaign to run across let’s say 30 days, building high quality links (such as high DA web 2.0’s).

Sourcing Content Syndication

How would you suggest sourcing the content considering it needs to be high quality content (for Tier1)? Could we somehow set up RSS feeds from high authority sites and mix our links into that content and syndicate it across the Tier 1 platforms? How else do you source good content that is easy to acquire without paying someone to write articles?

I’m doing a lot of manual link building from PBN’s and I really need something that I can set up and forget but trust to do a good job.

Siloing Sites

9:00 I have a site that I created before I knew anything about silos or structuring a website properly. I have tried to do a modified silo by having 4 pages that link to the home page and posts related to each page topic/category linking to the page and the home page, but know that was done somewhat inconsistently. Here's a great guide from our friends at Authority Hacker about Silos: https://www.authorityhacker.com/site-architecture/

Best Practices in Using Syndwire

16:00 If you could go over best practices for Syndwire… I think that you have stated that tier 2 only for money site and tier one or direct to video and other high DA. Should you be putting other content in the form of feeds to these accounts similar to what we do with IFTTT and do you even theme these networks? Thanks

YouTube Live Videos

20:00 I want to make a single video into multiple videos that appear unique using the standard YT video upload. I don’t know how to do it using YT Hang outs and live events. At this time, I’m more interested in getting test videos on YT/Google. Will varying the length +/- a few seconds, or using different background music, etc. work. Can I use the standard YT upload or does it only work with using YT live and hangouts? Are there other things that I can do?

Proxies for Google Account Creation

22:00 1. Bradley mentions using a particular type of proxy or at least requirements of the proxies we need to use. What kind of proxies should we be using to create Google accounts?

2. Should we be using our proxies for anything other than creating google accounts?

3. Quick question about PBNs and hosting: SEO hosting or dollar hosts, and why?

4. Another quick one about PBNs: can I add all of them to one webmaster tools account? Even if I had 100s?

5. Does setting up subdomains have any other SEO advantages apart from protecting the root domain from potential black hat backlash?

Domain Extensions

31:00 6. Does having the other extensions for a site help in the same way subdomains do? .org .net .co etc.

Personas Vs. Branded Networks on Different Niches

32:00 7. I know the training says create personas, but I wondering about making simply branded networks around different niches… Is there a reason other than the work that would cause you to discourage this?

How Press Release Works

33:00 8. Could you explain to me how press releases work that would be great.

YouTube Embeds in Web 2.0s Properties in IFTTT Networks

38:00 How do I get videos embedded into WP, Tumblr, Blogger from a YT feed? I am using the new YT feed in IFTTT. This is a “Tier1 Persona” network.

41:00 (crowdsearch.me) All my campaigns are showing a Keyword Search Volume of 25 and hence have Smart Rank disabled.

42:00 – Is there a penalty for repeating certain content pieces on almost every page of a blog?

44:00 – Can you have a few different YouTube playlist video embeds on your site when each playlist may repeat one or more of the same individual videos in them? Will that be duplicate content?

– Have you ever tried a blog setup with a series of posts and pages which you change all the time rather than writing new posts and pages each time there is something new or to update?

(This would be more of a set site structure where you use a blog system to better manage your website rather than thinking of a blog as a need to continually add new posts.)

Redirections

45:00 – Can a person use the Redirect option in cPanel for one of the Double 301 Redirects steps in the same manner as the other ways you taught?

– Have you tried posting with taxonomies of Post-1, Page-1, Bonus-1 , Post-2, Page-2, Bonus-2 and so on which all link to each other? In theory, to take advantage of visitor curiosity to try to out Post-3, Page-3, Bonus-3 searches if they saw the first 2, to dive deeper and soak up all the content.

Especially when the site is not one that shows the site posts readily in navigations, the numeric system could help them then.

Announcements

48:00 Announcements about upcoming events and products

IFTTT Recipes Issues

51:00 Can someone please remind me where Bradley Benner updated our understanding of proper triggers / actions across tiers to prevent multiple syndications (over and over and over…)?

1:00:00 FYI… There are some issues with IFTTT and the recipes. This is because of the Google changes that occurred this week. Mostly because YouTube is now passing “http://www.youtu.be/” to the IFTTT URL insert tag. This has caused some embedding issues. Seems it no longer passes the “watch” url to IFTTT any longer.

PBN Site Not Linking to Money Site

4:00 Should I be as concerned about content on a PBN site if I'm not linking to a money site?

I'm willing to bet that it would make sense to increase domain authority by having more content, especially syndicated content via IFTTT and all the other good stuff you train us to do. Even though I'm not directly targeting a money domain, I'm still getting high DA links to the domain and spreading links over more pages which should increase DA and ultimately the power of my money site links.

Could below average / spun content put my entire domain at risk in this scenario? Same question for curated / syndicated content as well. Is it in your estimation worthwhile to have this automated domain authority stack persisting forever or would the risk offset the potential rewards? What about the effect of syndicating say ten better than average blog pages (hand spun, relevant, non-linked to money sites) versus persistent below average quality content (less relevant, auto spun, non-linked)?

I guess what I'm trying to figure out is whether you tend to see diminished returns from having all of these tiered syndicated links and whether content quality matters as much when it's content minus links?

Some ideas for content and PBN content from a previous webinar: https://youtu.be/0jtPKE8b-EI?t=28m21s
