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?
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
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.
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.
See how Hangout Millionaire can be utilized to rank videos, generate revenue – it's a killer tool that works extremely well with our IFTTT Syndication approach. This replay of our live webinar with Peter Drew, creator of Hangout Millionaire, showed just how many ways there are monetize and scale with videos.
This is an awesome tool for your SEO toolbox if you are looking for a way to scale video production, test markets and niches, and want to save time in doing so. As Bradley points out during the webinar, it has allowed him to do tests that might have taken weeks or a month in just hours. This is software that we use in our businesses and were glad to have Peter and Mitch join us to talk about it in depth.
This great presentation with Peter and Mitch, along with the Semantic Mastery crew, will give you a good idea of how Hangout Millionaire can fit into your business or freelancing options for generating client videos, lead gen videos, and more!
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?
6:00 I noticed that Buffer now supports posting to Pinterest. I am setting up an IFTTT recipe to post from Flickr to Buffer, and then hoping Buffer will post to Pinterest. The missing part is where you choose which BOARD to post to.
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.
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/
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?
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?
– 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.

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.
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?
