23. Ultimate Guide to Bing SEO – Most of what you’ve been learning about search engine optimization refers to Google, because it is the most popular search engine.

The chaps over at Greenlane Search Marketing created a particularly useful tool if you’re struggling for content Ideas. Put in the search term you want to rank for, or just the general topic of content you want to write about. Put in the date parameters (I tend to look back about 3+ years) and have a read of some old content. See if you can jazz it up a bit and bring it into modern times, then get in touch with the webmaster and see if they’d be interested in posting the newer version.

I love your blog and have watched and watched and …. all the videos . (its driving my wife crazy lol) and now I’m in information overload. I probably suffer from analysis paralysis. I’m confused and keep jumping from one thing to another without actually accomplishing anything concrete. So I thought I would ask here Do you need all the tools in this list? or could you give me a list of what I need in my toolbox for maximum results. Thanks in advance
Having said this, I believe that one important trend in 2017, at least in the Nordic countries, will be the increasing real-time aspect of SEO. Google’s algorithms react much faster to your changes, two recent examples being the last Penguin update and the date bug. Besides reacting fast, Google is also more forgiving than it has been in the past.
Fortunately, you don’t have to blindly pick keywords and wait for the results to come in before you can figure out which keywords have adequate volume and an acceptable CPC. There are several keyword research tools you can use to do SEM keyword research (click the link for more info on how to do keyword research for search engine marketing).
However, as our relationship with Google becomes ever more entrenched and complex (both as users and marketers) the list of potential factors that could be included in SEM expands. Let’s look at some of the major ones below:
WooRank is a great tool for beginners or just to know exactly how a website is performing before building your campaign. It’s a Chrome extension that gives you a detailed report that shows traffic estimations and usability issues. WooRank can be a helpful guide to get the most of your SEO campaign
Wondering whether or not you got slapped by a Google Penalty? Well Website Penalty Indicator can give you some much-needed insight. The tool lines up your organic traffic with dates of Google penalties…like “Mobilegeddon” and the Phantom update.

63. How to Find Profit-Driving Keywords – In this piece from Wordstream, you will learn about some of their best and free keyword research tools (such as the Keyword Niche Finder or the Keyword Grouper). I suggest reading the other articles they recommend too, they are considerably insightful and constructive.
130. Keyword Discovery – This is another nifty little tool that allows you to find search terms for your site. What I find nice about it is that it somehow manages to give you, as you’ll find described on the site, both generic and long-tail keyword, that are somehow gathered from some 200 search engines from all over the world. In its free version, the Keyword Discovery tools offers hundreds of search terms, and search trends for the last 12 months. If you get the paid version, you’ll get up to 10,000 search terms per query, and a complete 12-month trend history.
For monitoring I use Databox. With Databox I can see the results of my SEO strategy anytime, anywhere, and so can our clients. This platform syncs your data from many marketing data sources including Hubspot, Google Analytics, Wistia, LinkedIn and soon SEMrush, and delivers up-to-the-minute data on my custom goals.
The other tool I am playing with now is a way to automate a lot of the outreach and the good news is it is free! It’s called Gmass and allows you to streamline the outreach process for link building as explained in this video:
The term “ALT tag” is a common shorthand term used to refer to the ALT attribute within in at image tag. Any time you use an image on a website, be sure to include an ALT tag within the image tag. Doing so will provide a clear text alternative of the image for users who are using screen readers.
It’s shocking that experts optimizing a site for Google search don’t optimize for their own internal search engine on e-commerce websites! That’s often because they overlook or underestimate the role of internal search, losing sales. People searching with misspellings, synonyms, hyphenation or spacing errors are not taken to the appropriate product pages. They should be.
Once you have added all the necessary keywords, you may click on the Get Estimates and Review Plan button. As keyword volume is based on your location, bid and the likes, you need to provide some information to customize your estimates. For this, you need to give a bid and a daily budget for the Keyword Planner to generate daily forecasts for Average Ad Position, Clicks, Costs and Impressions. When this is finished, download the plan in any format.
SEMrush makes it really easy to find what keyword the site is ranking for. You can add keywords and track their positions in all search engines based on the geographical location you set. SEMrush is an all in one tool for bloggers.
Finally I landed in your article after spending long hours to learn about how to proceed seo for my website. They way you narrated your points with snapshot is very attractive. I like your way of using wikipedia to generate new keywords. Thanks.
Over the years, SEO has become more involved as search engines developed more aspects to how it ranked sites. For example, in the early 2000’s, simply having the page’s name as part of the URL increased the odds of getting ranked (instead of www.yoursite.com/page1 the site had www.yoursite.com/titleofpage).
PageSpeed Insights incorporate data from the Chrome User Experience Report (CrUX) to display real-world performance about a page. PSI reports two metrics: First Contentful Paint (FCP) and DOMContentLoaded (DCL).
Google Search Console: Gives you a ton of valuable data such as keywords, position, impression, and CTR. If your site is powered by AMP Pages then you can segment that particular traffic and analyze the performance.
The terms SEO experts often start with are page authority (PA) and domain authority (DA). DA, a concept in fact coined by Moz, is a 100-point scale that predicts how well a website will rank on search engines. PA is the modern umbrella term for what started as Google’s original PageRank algorithm, developed by co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin. Google still uses PageRank internally but has gradually stopped supporting the increasingly irrelevant metric, which it now rarely updates. PA is the custom metric each SEO vendor now calculates independently to gauge and rate (again, on a scale of 100) the link structure and authoritative strength of an individual page on any given domain. There is SeO industry debate as to the validity of PA and DA, and how influence the PageRank algorithm still holds in Google results (more on that in a bit), but outside of Google’s own analytics, they’re the most widely accepted metrics out there.
It might be best to stay away from webinars or classes you can simply find on YouTube or other free video platforms, because they are harder to vet, and may advise you to practice gray, or even black hat SEO techniques. However, I do mention a couple of YouTube resources below that have been posted by good names from SEO, so they are definitely useful and will teach you plenty effective things.
Let’s say, for example, that you run a construction business that helps with home repairs after natural disasters and you want to advertise that service. The official term for the service is “fire restoration,” but keyword research may indicate that customers in your area search instead for “fire repair” or “repair fire damage to house.” By not optimizing for these two keywords, you’ll lose out on a lot of traffic and potential customers, even if “fire restoration” is technically more correct.
Your IT team understands the importance of securing the network against data breaches from external threats. Regardless of your efforts, data breaches usually begin from inside your network, often due to lax or unenforced security policies. *Did you know?
