SEO Hacker’s Top 10 of 2015
Happy Holidays SEO Hackers! It’s yet another year – our fifth year as a blog and as an SEO Services company here in the Philippines. As the year comes to a close, I’ve gathered the 10 most-read entries we wrote this year.
This is in no particular order as I believe some of the less read posts have more value in general but were not promoted as much.
“Sean, I’m gonna be honest with you mate.” He said through a series of half-smiles. I knew there was something wrong – and I knew it way before this meeting.
“I’m really not happy with the quality of links I’ve been getting.” Yep, he was right. I’ve been out of the linkbuilding team of my own company since over 3 years ago and so far, majority of the links in the reports for his company is of crap quality.
“And if this keeps on, I’m sorry to say that at the end of this month, we’ll have to look for another SEO company to help us hit our goals.”
“This is really not working out guys.” I found my tone rising as I wasn’t really happy with our numbers.
“Well, what do you want us to do?” Said the voice from the other side of the line. His tone also rising.
“We have to improve this. We have to prioritize the user onboarding process.” I explained the importance of moving the needle up with our user onboarding to the Qeryz product development team.
That was over two months ago.
Maybe you’re planning to create a content marketing campaign, but don’t know where, and how to start. I know it’s never easy to start one – it takes too much dedication, time, energy, and loads of ideas to begin with. Like what they always say, beginning is always the crucial part of marketing. This is where all your strategies and actions will depend on.
So, I asked 8 online marketing experts for tips and advice to help you understand more about content marketing, how to start one, and what you should do to have an effective, and lasting content marketing campaign.
Yes, I know you’re wondering about the exact same thing. RankBrain is out. It has been covered in lots of SEO news sites – but how does this “Third most important ranking factor” really affect SEO?
Some say there’s no future for link building, that investing on it is just a waste of time. But, being in the world of Digital Marketing, I’ve witnessed how link building helped a lot of websites not just with ranking in major search engines, but also on increasing conversions – in fact our clients can attest to that.
Google keyword tool used to be a favorite keyword research tool among digital marketers and SEOs. But in recent years, Google has reduced the amount of keyword data available to people in Keyword Planner as well as with Google Analytics.
“Yeah, so which is better, a subdomain or subfolder when it comes to SEO?” This is perhaps one of the frequently asked questions by clients who have an in-house IT team. I don’t blame them. Sometimes even SEO specialists ask me this question when I bump into them.
Guest blogging has been very popular in recent years, as it offers bloggers endless benefits, such as the opportunity to build a positive reputation, get their brand in front of a new audience, earn hundreds or thousands of new loyal readers, and augment their SEO metrics. I don’t think I need to sell you on the advantages of guest blogging. Chances are, you’re already doing some version of it.
Have you ever asked yourself whether you really need to write blogs or not? How about growing your content in order to rank for search engines? Is it a requirement that you should meet?
In an article I happen to have stumbled upon yesterday, I read that one of the major marketing predictions for this year is that of the increase in demand for conversion optimization.
That’s it! Hope you get your fix of our best of this year as we say good-bye to 2015 and hello to 2016!
