This post and the Skycraper technique changed my mind about how I approach SEO, I’m not a marketing expert and I haven’t ranked sites that monetize really well, I’m just a guy trying to get some projects moving on and I’m not even in the marketing business so I just wanted to say that the way you write makes the information accesible, even if you’re not a native english speaker as myself.
Hey Kosta! As a fashion blogger myself, I totally understand where you’re coming from! I think a great way to incorporate the tips Ramsay uses here is by trying to find a way that you can use your outfit shoot to help/give suggestions to your readers–tips on layering, pattern clashing–that way the post is also more likely to be shared! (well that is at least in my own experience!).
11th point to me would be too look at your social media properties, work out how you can use them to assist your SEO strategy. I mean working on competitions via social channels to drive SEO benefit to your main site is great, working on re-doing your YouTube videos to assist the main site and also working on your content sharing strategy via these social sites back to the main site.
Excellent post Brian. I think the point about writing content that appeals to influencers in spot on. Could you recommend some good, manual strategies through which I can spot influencers in boring niches *B2B* where influencers are not really talking much online? Is it a good idea to rely on newspaper articles to a feel for what a particular industry is talking about? Would love to hear your thoughts on that.
Visitors’ intent as they browse your website has a direct impact on your conversion rates. Are visitors coming to your website to research products with the intention of buying online? Or are they taking information from your site back to brick-and-mortar stores to buy there? It depends on the nature of the product you offer and how visitors view it. This answer is focused on visitor-centric information and not on factors you control, such as website messaging, design, copy, etc. These are the three different categories of visitors’ intent:
While short-tail keywords are often searched more frequently, it is more difficult to rank for them on search engines. Targeting long-tail keywords, on the other hand, gives you a better chance of ranking higher (even on the first page) for queries specific to your products and services—and higher ranking means more traffic. Plus, as search engines and voice-to-text capabilities advance, people are using more specific phrases to search online.
This is an obligatory stage, during which the subscriber is immediately sent to the email address a special letter with options for how he can confirm the subscription started and end the subscription process. The options for the actual confirmation can be: a link, an email address or a password to confirm the subscription. An unconfirmed subscription is invalid.
This ensures that you will only get the best high quality targeted website traffic possible. This is important as this will significantly boost your rates of conversion for the products and services you offer and to the type of customer that you want. This will also boost your website ranking in search engines especially Google. More Google searches mean more visitors and more visitors means more sales.
Google is currently been inundated with reconsideration requests from webmasters all over the world. On public holidays the Search Quality teams do not look at reconsideration requests. See below analysis. From my experience it can take anywhere from 15-30+ days for Google to respond to reconsideration requests; during peak periods it can even take longer.
Just as there are many scams trying to sell you their online training programs, and promising riches beyond your wildest dreams, there are also many traffic programs selling their traffic and promising you the best targeted traffic you can get, that end up being worthless. Lets break this down into the different types of traffic that you can pay for, and then narrow it down to which ones you could possibly benefit from and which ones you should stay away from.

Those are some beginner ways of segmenting users or figuring out what they are trying to do on your site, some proactive ways to segment is the use of Custom Variables. Most people use these to track “logged in users” or what affiliate someone came from, but what about tracking those people who found no search results? That’s what I did here, and there is no surprise there is $0 revenue from those users… perhaps an opportunity to use spelling correction or show similar products.

Thanks for a this timely article. If I understand it correctly, are you saying that we would better be off looking at market data in our niche and make an article of that for influencers to share rather than actionable tips that the target clients would be interested in? Shouldn’t there be a double strategy – articles for the influencers to share and articles for the users to enjoy?
Step 8: Use e-mail marketing to attract repeat visitors. Getting lots of traffic to your site is great, but if you aren't collecting the contact information--the names and e-mail addresses--of visitors, you're wasting every single click. If visitors leave your site without buying your product, there's a good chance they won't ever be back--and you'll have absolutely no way of following up with them.
Sending out regular newsletters and promoting offers through email is a great way to stay in touch with your customers and can also help to get traffic to your website.

This information hits the mark. “If you want your content to go viral, write content that influencers in your niche will want to share.” I love the information about share triggers too. I’m wondering, though, if you could share your insights on how influencers manage to build such vast followings. At some point, they had to start without the support of other influencers. It would seem that they found a way to take their passion directly to a “ready” world. Excellent insights. Thanks for sharing.
A recent Ad Week article spotlighted a Russian scam ring that had been siphoning billions of ad dollars, by using counterfeit IPs that generated views from videos. This sort of scam leads us to believe that a similar strategy is being used by planting undetected malware on computers that will direct its web views or by counterfeiting IPs(internet protocol). This effectively allows traffic dealers to sell organic traffic by direct these bots programmatically to different paying websites.
The New York Times reported about Cameron Harris, a political science graduate, who was able to make a profitable business by purchasing an expired domain. His idea was called 'A Fake News Masterpiece' by the paper. After finishing his studies, the 23-year-old was looking for a lucrative business model and came up with the idea of carrying out a 'sociological experiment', in his words.
