Brian, I have been following you for 1.5 years now. Your tips and tricks about link building and seo has enhanced my knowledge to an extent that i write about it in my blog and also teach other people who are seo-noobs.
29. E-commerce SEO: The Definitive Guide – For those of you interested in learning SEO for eCommerce, I recommend this dedicated guide written by Brian Dean. You would need to focus on more conversion-focused keywords, or search terms that express buyer intent. Building content, links, traffic and general site and brand authority require a different approach for eCommerce sites, and this guide is quite thorough in teaching you what to do and most importantly, how to do it. You will learn about keyword research and targeting, competitor tracking, site architecture, on-page SEO, internal links, technical SEO, content marketing, site auditing, and more.
Specialized search engines focus on serving up results for a specific topic or from a specific type of media. Vertical search engines may let you dig deep into video results or refine your search to sites focused on one industry. These engines serve as great sources of engaged traffic and learning how to increase your rankings on them can have a huge pay off.
46. Moz Webinars – By now, it should be no surprise to you that Moz is one of your best sources when it comes to learning and perfecting your optimization skills. Here, you can either sign up for prospective webinars, or check out their archive and select those that are of immediate interest to you.
Finally Screaming Frog’s Spider is probably the most under priced tool in the SEO space. While more expensive crawlers have been developed over the past few years Screaming Frog SEO Spider is still the first tool that I renew without even thinking about it. Having a web crawler really helps you to see where there are glaring technical issues holding your site back. If you want to learn more about why I love this tool so much then SEER interactive explained it better than I ever could!
Page relevance tools – whatever they might key off of, it’s probably not what Google is. It’s incredibly important to create a semantic and contextually relevant page but you just need a keyword tool (again, probably pretty inaccurate at least when it comes to the numbers)

Where SEO is the process of getting a website or page to rank high on search engine results pages – or SERPs, online reputation management is the opposite. An ORM expert will use the concepts of SEO to attempt to bury incorrect or damaging information about a person or brand. This type of SEO is growing in popularity as careers can be made or lost in a Google search, so figure out what kind of SEO is right for you.
Although this is not officially part of the Google ranking algorithm, it is something that can improve the presentation of your pages in the search results and this means higher click through rates and more organic traffic.
Yes, you can use this extension for your own site. But in experience this tool is even better for competitor analysis because it shows you the site’s Facebook and Twitter pages, what technology they’re using on their site, and traffic estimates…all from within your browser.
Thus, the only well-written description is a hand written one, and if you’re thinking of auto-generating the meta description, you might as well not do anything and let the search engine control the snippet… If you don’t use the meta description, the search engine will find the keyword searched for in your document, and automatically pick a string around that, which gives you a bolded word or two in the results page.
To put it simply, SEM is anything that you can do to help improve your site’s ranking in search engines, like Google or Bing, as well as the amount of traffic you receive from those search engines. This is particularly important, as over 70% of all new visitors will find your website just by performing a search query through a search engine.

The rel=”nofollow” meta tag tells search engines not to follow a link from your website. The reason this is important to use is because whenever you link to a separate website from your own, you give up “link juice”, which is something admits to using in their ranking algorithm. If you can, try to apply rel=”nofollow” to all websites you link out to. Or at the least, the websites you don’t trust (which you shouldn’t be linking to anyway). More on nofollow from Matt Cutts.
Wow very nice article Brian. Perhaps this is one major reason why my site died. I was not paying attention to links. Some of the techniques you mentioned here seems do-able enough for me. I’ll try to do a some of the techniques you mention. Thanks for sharing!
Quality content is the number one driver of your search engine rankings and there is no substitute for great content. Quality content created specifically for your intended user increases site traffic, which improves your site’s authority and relevance.
12. Link out. Search engines give more importance to Websites that link to other related sites, especially if they’re local to your city or state, or industry. Create a “Resources” page with keyword-rich links out to other sites.
Ahrefs – While Screaming Frog is my “on-page” tools, Ahrefs is my “off-page” tool. Ahrefs in my opinion has the best backlinks index on the web. It allows you to take a quick glance or in-depth view of your backlinks, and it does a great job of it. I’ve been using Ahrefs.com now for almost 10 years, and they have never let me down!
