Can you take a look? You just need to install it in Chrome and take out a free account. We also have a Firefox extension ready that is reviewed by Mozilla as we speak, those long term Firefox fans are covered, too.
Backlinks are critical for SEO. Without backlinks, your outstanding content will be lost somewhere between page 10 and 20. Follow link building best practices and create links that will help you improve your rankings in Google.
It is super easy to use and has built-in email client which ensures that your emails don’t end up in spam. You can add multiple email accounts, follow up prospects, and get a 360 degree view of your campaigns. This is a great tool for reaching out to get backlinks, press mentions and connecting with influencers. This will help you grow authority and bring traffic for your website.
We often fail to see that websites, with all the data and glorified images, are representations of ideas. Ideas that belong to people. The real challenge for online marketing experts in the year to come is forcing you to get involved in the human element of web data.
Search engines count links higher than plain text in their search algorithms, so try to create links that use your keyword phrase. Avoid using links that simply say, “click here” or “more information” as these links will do nothing to help you with your search engine optimization. Leverage the power of links in SEO by including your keyword phrase in them whenever possible. The text surrounding links is typically weighted more heavily by search engines than other text on your page as well. If you can’t include your keyword phrase in your link text, try to include it around your link text.
To create a sitemap for your website using the XML Sitemap, simply enter the URL of your site along with a few other optional parameters into the XML Sitemap, and it will directly create a sitemap for your website which can be uploaded to the Google Webmaster Tools.
Website-specific crawlers, or software that crawls one particular website at a time, are great for analyzing your own website’s SEO strengths and weaknesses; they’re arguably even more useful for scoping out the competition’s. Website crawlers analyze a website’s URL, link structure, images, CSS scripting, associated apps, and third-party services to evaluate SEO. Not unlike how a website monitoring tool scans for a webpage’s overall “health,” website crawlers can identify factors such as broken links and errors, website lag, and content or metadata with low keyword density and SEO value, while mapping a website’s architecture. Website crawlers can help your business improve website user experience (UX) while identifying key areas of improvement to help pages rank better. DeepCrawl is, by far, the most granular and detailed website crawler in this roundup, although Ahrefs and Majestic also provide comprehensive domain crawling and website optimization recommendations. Another major crawler we didn’t test is Screaming Frog, which we’ll soon discuss in the “The Enterprise Tier” section.
I’m agree with you, but I’m also using Serpstat as a secondary part tool. Because all SEOs hide them PBNs from Ahrefs and Semrush bots, but Serpstat sees such PBNs. So I can gather more information about niche and backlinks.
MixMax – Outreach is going to be an important part of that – whether it’s outreach for blog articles, link backs, etc., and MixMax makes it easy to track who has opened my emails, and follow up with them if they haven’t responded.
Search engines need a unique URL per piece of content to be able to crawl and index that content, and to refer users to it. Different content – for example, different products in a shop – as well as modified content – for example, translations or regional variations – need to use separate URLs in order to be shown in search appropriately.
Use Ranking Intelligence to learn which keywords work for you and your competitors. It displays which keywords get the most searches, which rankings deliver the most visitors to your competitors, and how to maximize the results of their rankings to convert those numbers to your pages.
Gone are the days of thinking of SEM as the very bottom of the purchase funnel. Today, you can use SEM for awareness, consideration, purchasing — and nurturing, amplification, recalling, upselling, reselling, and so on.
There are a lot of books on search engine optimization and marketing that can help you on your quest to becoming a SEO Jedi. Luckily, some of them are free, so you have access to a vast deposit of knowledge that can complete your training. Not all of them target SEO for beginners, which is why I’ve listed them at the end; they will be part of your continuous learning process and help you expand your knowledge.
Awesome post. While SEMrush tends to provide bad ranking data in my experience, their other competitive analysis tools are pretty spot on. This is a prime example of how to use these to your advantage. Thanks for writing this up.
Hey Brian, I have landed in this blog while visiting via blog land. I must appreciate your effort to put up such informative content. As being an Internet Marketing Consultant, I would like to add few thought of my own with your valuable content. There are many people who wants HUGE number of traffic with no time at all. But as per my experience, SEO has become SLOW-BUT-STEADY process in the recent times. After so many algorithm updates of Google, I think if we will do any wrong things with the websites, that should be paid off. So without taking any risk, we need to work ethically so that slowly the website will get the authority and grab the targeting traffic. What do you think mate? I am eagerly looking forward to your reply and love to see more valuable write-ups from your side. Why don’t you write about some important points about Hummingbird Updates of Google. It will be a good read. Right brother? 🙂
I tried Wikipedia back links so many time but they are not stable. Wikipedia editor delete your links very quickly. Can you please suggest any foolproof idea to gain back links from foolproof Wikipedia ?
It helps you find out how the website appears to Google when opened on mobile devices. It also provides a deeper insight into the possible mobile usability problems faced by the site including smaller font size or the use of flash. Above all, it is easy to use. All you need to do is enter the URL you want to test, and it will provide an in-depth report once done.
Wonderful post! I was a little confused on the first idea though. I don’t understand how contacting people to tell them that their Wikipedia link is dead will help build backlinks. Could you please provide more clarification? Thanks so much!
Wow! This is awesome! Lots of good tips here. I used to do a lot of SEO but stopped when the latest update came out. I’m getting back into the SEO game so this post definitely help out a bunch! Appreciate you for sharing this! Keep it up!
Permanently 301 redirect expired product URLs. If the expired product is replaced by a newer model, using a 301 permanent redirect from the older page to the newer model’s URL tells Google you want this page ranked instead. Your SEO value will be retained.
That said, even if you’ve seen no real change in rankings or traffic to date, don’t assume your site is future proof. If you don’t already have a mobile-friendly site (and if you’re not sure whether your site is mobile-friendly you can find out here), start developing one ASAP.
In the real world, its not so easy. For example, I have 2 niches where I’m trying to use your technique. By keywords, its Software for Moving and Free Moving Quotes. I have 2 websites that related to each of them, emoversoftware.com (emover-software.com as initial, they linked together) and RealMoving.com ( for latter keyword). So, to begin with, none of those niches has Wikipedia articles, so your first suggestion will not work. But, in general suggestions, you are advising to get backlinks (of authoritative sites of course). But check this out – my site emover-software.com has only 4(!) backlinks (https://openlinkprofiler.org/r/emover-software.com#.VXTaOs9VhBc) and, however, listed as #1 (or #2) by my keyword. (moving software, software for moving, software for moving company). RealMoving.com has more than 600 backlinks and is way back in ranks ( 170 and up) by my keyword. Even though those sites have different competition, its still makes no sense! It doesn’t seem like Google even cares about your backlinks at all! I also checked one of my competitor’s backlinks, its more than 12000, however, his rank by keyword related to moving quotes even worse than mine!.
SEMrush – After years of SEO, SEMrush has risen to the top as one of my favourites. This tool is especially good for competitor analysis. It offers advanced keyword and competitor research. The makers of this software are the same company that made the popular tool SEOQuake. It allows you to see a bird’s eye view of how your site is performing in search engines and look at what your competitors are doing for both organic and AdWords.
