A mobile-first index coming from Google has long been rumored, and finally, it’s no longer a rumor. In web development, considering a mobile-first approach is always a good idea.

 

If your tracking program is not installed properly, it is possible that it will spit back erroneous, incorrect data, or worse, duplicate data showing an increase when there may not even be an increase. At its simplest, make sure that the tracking program tags (if needed) are all only installed once on the page. Multiple installations and erroneous installations can become major headaches later. Google recommends using Google Tag Manager for more complex analytics installations.

 

Most websites use Google webmaster tools and Google Analytics as their statistics tracking program of choice. Of course, there are other options. But tracking programs are worthless if they are not configured correctly.

 

By examining these items in further detail, we can identify potential roadblocks and bottlenecks most commonly associated with the website development life cycle. This checklist identifies items routinely covered in Google’s webmaster tools, and then some, to ensure that you have all bases covered for a successful website optimization, every time. In addition, this checklist will also cover lesser known but crucial items that are important to tackle during development before they go live on the site.

 

Website developers are not always quite as savvy as SEO practitioners when it comes to creating websites that perform well in the SEO arena. Even though development requires a set of technical skills, different technical skills are required for SEO. By following a standard checklist, it can be possible to follow Google’s Webmaster guidelines while also getting ahead in the all-important competitive space in SEO. This checklist looks at things like site speed optimization, structured data, HTML improvements, cross-platform compatibility, and other development tasks from a developer’s perspective in the context of SEO.

Like most things programmatic, there is already a fair amount of complexity within this area, beginning with what “programmatic TV” actually refers to. In essence, any TV inventory that can be bought via a programmatic platform falls under this definition.

 

Regardless of exactly when, it seems inevitable that all TV inventory will eventually be purchased programmatically. And, considering the example of programmatic display’s incredibly rapid growth, we should expect this to happen sooner rather than later.

 

Research by PWC predicts that programmatic TV will represent approximately a third of global TV ad revenue by 2021, whereas a study by Videology states the consensus among industry experts to be closer to more than half by that date.

 

Five percent of all TV ad spend in the US will be programmatic by 2019, according to research by eMarketer. Though modest-sounding, that’s an extremely rapid expansion from $640 million in 2016 to the $3.8 billion it is expected to become.

 

The tide is turning: traditional TV advertising is slowing down, programmatic TV is rapidly expanding, and tech platforms and broadcasters are in frantic competition to claim this new, highly desirable market.

The benefit of using an SSL certificate is that it offers encrypted protection during the online transfer of sensitive information. (Indeed, you are required by the Payment Card Industry (PCI) to have an SSL certificate if you collect credit card information on your site.) SSL certificates can also help you gain your customers’ trust and protect against phishing schemes.

 

SSL certificates utilize a public and a private key, which work together to establish an encrypted connection. Typically, data sent between a browser and a web server is sent as plain text, which can leave you vulnerable to hackers.

 

Before we tackle those questions, let’s cover the basics. SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer, a security method which allows for the encryption of data when being transferred over a server. SSL certificates help to protect the transfer of sensitive information such as credit card numbers, passwords and usernames, Social Security numbers and more.

 

Many SSL providers offer a wealth of add-ons, which makes comparing providers relatively difficult. This guide will help answer several common questions so that you can find the certificate that best suits your needs:

 

A full range of SSL products are available on the market today that cater to various domain and security needs. Though many webmasters are exploring the possibilities, hoping a move to SSL will boost their search rankings, it can be overwhelming to try to compare these options, let alone fully understand what you’re paying for.

According to Statistic Brain, as quoted in rezdy, more than 148.3 million people (which accounts for more than 57% of all travel reservations every year) make use of the internet to make reservations for their accommodations, activities, and tours.

 

Adwords account for 97% of Google’s revenue, and over time the SERPs have been altered to ensure that Ads are given priority over organic results. Therefore, optimizing PPC Ads is a huge opportunity to get your hotel offers high up on SERP, allowing for visibility above larger organic competitors.

 

Hotel Price Ads, or HPAs, help to display your hotel prices and location across desktops, PCs, tablets, and mobile devices on Google and Google Maps. When you buy HPAs, travelers are able to see your hotel offers as well as directions to your hotel when they are actively searching for a hotel to book.

 

“Sites listed on the first Google search results page generate 92% of all traffic from an average search. When moving from page one to two, the traffic dropped by 95%, and by 78% and 58% for the subsequent pages.”

 

To improve the traffic to your hotel website, leading to more revenue for your business, every hotel must ensure that they are properly set up to be visible on search engine results pages (SERPs).

 

 

The myth of the duplicate content penalty – Search Engine Land

Google Panda Update emphasizes no duplicate content of your web page over the cyberspace. By saying duplicate content, it does not mean duplicating copies in web servers at one or multiple locations. Different URLs (e.g. www.mysite.com, mysite.com or http://www.mysite.com) pointing to the same web page sitting in your web server is still counted as duplicate content.

Adding &filter=0 to the end of the page URL on a search for “raleigh seo meetup” will show me the exact same page twice. I’m not saying Meetup has done a good job with this, since they actually indicate the two versions (HTTP and HTTPS in this case) are both correct in their use of canonical tags, but I think it does show that the exact same page (or similar pages) are actually indexed, and only the most relevant is being shown. It’s not that the page is necessarily competing or doing any harm to the website itself.

 

People mistake duplicate content for a penalty because of how Google handles it. Really, the duplicates are just being filtered in the search results. You can see this for yourself by adding &filter=0 to the end of the URL and removing the filtering.

 

There are so many myths around duplicate content that people actually think it causes a penalty and that their pages will compete against each other and hurt their website. I see forum posts, Reddit threads, technical audits, tools, and even SEO news websites publishing articles that show people clearly don’t understand how Google treats duplicate content.

 

Duplicate content generally refers to substantive blocks of content within or across domains that either completely match other content or are appreciably similar. Mostly, this is not deceptive in origin.

 

Let’s put this to bed once and for all, folks: There’s no such thing as a “duplicate content penalty.” At least, not in the way most people mean when they say that. You can help your fellow webmasters by not perpetuating the myth of duplicate content penalties!

The very first step in SEO Web design is identifying what type of site it is (B2B, ecommerce, news publishing, microsite, etc.). SEO tactics vary by type of site because people search differently depending on if they are buying a product or researching a topic and so on. (Of course, both of these behaviors can fall into one category like ecommerce, but defining what type of site first maps out the process for keyword research.)

 

In the first phase, the framework for the site is built. It’s through the research process that the wireframe for SEO is discovered. If possible, it’s ideal to build PPC campaigns simultaneously, since SEO and PPC are often interconnected through the content and keywords of the site.

 

Let’s have a look at what it takes to build SEO into Web design and development right from the start. In-depth commentary follows this image. (Click on the image to be taken to a downloadable PDF.)

 

When people think “Web design,” they often think of the look and feel of the site, the colors, the graphics, etc. From an SEO perspective, the design of the site includes that and so much more. It’s the architecture of the website that ensures it’s as search engine-friendly as possible, and it touches everything from the code to the content to the navigation and more.

 

In a perfect world, site owners would consider SEO from the very start, before the Web design and development of the site was even a twinkle in their eye or a symbol in their code. We all know this isn’t the case, but every once and a while, we get lucky enough to build SEO in the site from the ground up, and it’s a beautiful thing.

Remarketing, also known as retargeting, are banner ads that target you after you’ve visited a company’s website. So after you visit a site like 80sTees.com (no affiliation) – and move on to a site like Gawker, you might see a 80sTees.com banner ad. How this works is a bit more complicated. Let’s dive into how exactly remarketing works and how your company can start using it.

 

You might be familiar with the term ‘remarketing’ and you may have read countless articles about the topic. If so, this isn’t the article for you. However, if you need a crash course, you are in the right place! This guide is designed for beginner-level audiences and to be your team’s tactical go-to.

 

But what if we were to pull the curtain back and show you who the Wizard of Oz is? Knowing what remarketing is and how it works may make it less impressive, but that doesn’t change its effectiveness. Even if you know the magic behind remarketing, it is a highly effective ad tactic for marketers.

I will admit to some small satisfaction that our original research revealed the value of original research. Yes, according to the SEOs we asked, investing in original data and research is an efficient link building method a solid 70% of the time – making it the 1 most efficient link building technique.

 

In this article, I will break down the top five most efficient link building methods according to our SEO respondents, and teach you how you can use those same methods to boost your SEO.

 

What we found is while links are still crucial to website health, the focus has swung heavily away from quantity and towards quality. That means link building now takes more time, effort, and deliberate action than it once did, but the final payoff is still well worth the effort.

 

To answer that question, my team and I recently created a brand new industry survey. We polled 628 SEO experts (which included a mix of in-house SEOs, SEO agencies, SEO consultants, and small business SEOs) at SMX Advanced 2017 in Seattle. Then we published our findings in this Link Building Report.

 

While backlinks are, admittedly, just one out of hundreds of different signals, they remain one of the most important ranking factors in the SEO industry. Google’s algorithm keeps evolving, but at present, there is still no better way to measure the authority of your content or the trust others place in it.

The most egregious cross-crafting claims seem to come from web development/design firms. I’ve seen a rash of it lately, and it’s ticking me off, so I’m going to embark on the web-designer-disparaging rant that every SEO seems to indulge in at least once in their career.

 

So when some web designer comes along and says “I Build Search Engine Friendly Web Sites And Specialize in Usability and Graphic Design,” I say “You and what army, buddy?!” Because, honestly, each one of those separate elements is one person’s full time job.

 

Yet another friend of mine is a graphic designer. He spends about 60 hours a week (he’s insane) taking the vague, nebulous “I kinda like bricks. Can you create for me a background that’s sorta brick-like, but not TOO brick-like.” requests from crazy people and codifying that nonsense into awesome well thought-out, engaging designs for websites. AND he now leaves room for blocks of text in his designs ’cause I threatened his life if he didn’t.

 

My BF (best friend, or boyfriend? OR BOTH? You decide!) is a web developer. Full time. 40 hours a week (at least) of taking assets from a PR firm and converting them into working awesome websites that are perfect regardless of which browser you’re looking at.

 

Hi! I’m Christina. I’m an SEO. It’s what I do full-time for a living. You know why? Because it takes one person (me) at least 40 hours a week to do all that’s necessary for 5 or so clients. It’s all I can do to keep up with the daily demands on my time and makes sure I am doing all that’s necessary on-page and off-page to make sure my clients rank higher and get the kind of quality traffic I told them was possible.
