Content Placement and optimization

content-developmentThere are only two web spaces where you would want to publish your content: your own blog or other blogs– most commonly termed as “guest posts”. Posting your content on either web places depends on your preference.

If you’re confident enough with your content, then you can post it on your blog (there’s no specific formula for this). On the other side, if you want to place your content on other blogs, there are a few questions that you need to ask to yourself:

  • Does my target audience visit the website?
  • Do they have a reputable name in the market?
  • Do they have high Domain Authority (DA)?
  • Will I be able to attract traffic and make them my regular readers?

Answering these questions can help you identify the right website or blog to place your content on. Link prospecting is finding relevant, targeted and high quality web places where links can possibly be acquired, i.e. blogs, forums and social profiles. Continue reading

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the techniques used to improve your website or blog visibility on search engines such as Google, Yahoo and Bing. For example the higher your Google page rank the closer you will appear at the top of the list when someone does a Google Search.

How to Use & Interpret Advanced Search Operators to Assess SERP Competitivity

Use Google’s Advanced Search Operators to Assess Your Target Searches

This is part of a training module from SEO Ibiza ‘s basic SEO Training course designed to explain how to use Google’s advanced Search Operators to fairly accurately assess the level of SERP competitivity of a particular phrase or keyword prior to attempting to target it with a website or hub.

But even if you are not a webmaster or SEO, using these techniques can potentially save you wasting your time chasing keywords that are too difficult, and hopefully identify areas where you could establish a presence fairly easily.

The hub is also a response to Peter Hoggan’s well written but ultimately flawed hub of a similar name to this one, which shows a perfectly valid (although quite unusual example for special “Ibiza” reasons we’ll explain later on) as to why reliance on just one of the metrics might not always give a totally accurate picture, especially in extremely low (zero) competition searches.

But as in all SEO, decisions can rarely be made from one metric alone so this hub will explain how using all three operators combined gives a more definitive picture, and finally we will put our money where the mouth is and demonstrate the principle in action.
