  2. Sonia

    A really amazing, easy to understand video. I really picked up some good tips here. My question is re external linking. I have 3 ecommerce websites all related to gifts. I am thinking of adding a link to each of the other two websites on each of my product pages on all of the websites. So all 3 sites link to each other. Do you think this is a good idea or too much for every product page? Was just going to use some set text on each of the product pages with the links. Would this be good for SEO? Would appreciate your guidance. Thank you

    Please find few tips below that might help you boost your Google rank.
    Five Ways to Improve your Site’s Ranking (SEO)
    Follow these suggestions, and watch your website rise the ranks to the top of search-engine results.
    1. Publish Relevant Content
    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.
    Identify a keyword phrase for each page. Think about how your reader might search for that specific page (with phrases like “mechanical engineering in Michigan,” “best applied physics program,” or “Michigan Tech degrees”). Then, repeat this phrase several times throughout the page—once or twice in the opening and closing paragraphs, and two to four more times throughout the remaining content.
    Don’t forget to use bold, italics, heading tags, and other emphasis tags to highlight keyword phrases, but don’t overdo it.
    Never sacrifice good writing for SEO. The best pages are written for the user, not for the search engine.
    2. Update Your Content Regularly
    You’ve probably noticed that we feel pretty strongly about content. Search engines do, too. Regularly updated content is viewed as one of the best indicators of a site’s relevancy, so be sure to keep it fresh.
    3. Metadata
    When designing your website, each page contains a space between the tags to insert metadata, or information about the contents of your page. If you have a CMS site, the UMC web team will have pre-populated this data for you:
    Title Metadata
    Title metadata is responsible for the page titles displayed at the top of a browser window. It is the most important metadata on your page. For those with a CMS website, the web team has developed an automated system for creating the meta title for each webpage.
    Description Metadata
    Description metadata is the textual description that a browser will use in your page search return. Think of it as your site’s window display—a concise and appealing description of what is contained within, with the goal of encouraging people to enter.
    Keyword Metadata
    Keyword metadata are the search phrases that people type when they want to find your page. You’ll want to include a variety of phrases. However, don’t get greedy: if your list becomes excessive, the browser may completely ignore the data. As a general rule, try to keep it to about 6-8 phrases with each phrase consisting of 1-4 words. A great example would be “computer science degree.”
    4. Have a link-worthy site
    Focus on creating relevant links within the text. Instead of having “click here” links, try writing out the name of the destination. “Click here” has no search engine value beyond the attached URL, whereas “Michigan Tech Enterprise Program” is rich with keywords and will improve your search engine rankings as well as the ranking of the page you are linking to.
    5. Use alt tags
    Always describe your visual and video media using alt tags, or alternative text descriptions. They allow search engines to locate your page, which is crucial—especially for those who use text-only browsers.

    I was able to rank high in google on one of my websites. I used influencer marketing with phlanx as my platform, i was able to raise my presence significantly therefore raising my traffic and increasing my click rate enabling me to have better SEO. When measured via return conversion to sales, it is very rewarding.

    When it comes to SEO, there’s no point in looking for new innovative ways that will magically help you jump to page 1 of Google. By the end of the day SEO optimization fundamentals haven’t changed in the last 10+ years: work on getting quality backlinks, post original, valuable and user friendly content, by active in your niche, share your content, optimize your site well, and if you do it on a consistent basis, you will be rewarded by top ranks. This is how I optimized my website and how I do it for my customers: #seofor50

    Too bad ranking high have nothing to do with content quality or trustfulness. So it does as much harm as it does good. Sometimes SEO makes more harm for end users. Only the “optimisators” win.

    1. Jordan Alexo

      No, ranking high has a lot to do with content quality. The longer you keep your audience in your website the better. You can only do that by providing relevant and good content. Otherwise, people will simply leave.

  22. Amit Bhokse

    the keyword you’re talking about is the focus keyword right?

    1. Amit Bhokse

      yeah,thanks

    2. Jordan Alexo

      Indeed, it helps your see what is missing in your post.

    3. Amit Bhokse

      sir I mean in Yoast SEO we get a box to put our focus keyword….is that the place where we have to put the target keyword of our article? which all the SEO specialists on youtube talk about

    4. Jordan Alexo

      Indeed, you should have a main keyword to build your content around. And add other related keywords throughout your content. Particularly in your h1 and h2. If you have any other question just leave it right below. Have a great day Amit Bhokse

  27. Drewbles

    I get mixed answers from people. A guy who advised me on setting this all up, told get my site up and running asap as Nov/Dec you could earn a lot but according to your video can take up to 6 months to see an increase in traffic.
    I’m using this to do affiliate marketing basically, i have severe depression, anxiety and other illnesses which make it almost impossible to work in places round here so making a career online is my only chance to move out my parents. I have several ideas for websites with AM and told to chose the best one first, once i start earning from it, then do more websites.
    This whole backlinks thing though seems tough, when you say social media, does that mean making a new facebook, twitter or can i use my current ones, i can understand with instagram making a new one is best. Desperate to start earning, not so i can get money but at least i can prove to my Dad it works as he doesn’t believe it can and has never cared about my mental health so will push towards warehouse work.

    1. Drewbles

      http://www.bestsolotraveltips.com thats my site, got many more posts planned, was told now i got some posts sorted, try to drive traffic to the website, even if people come to my site and never buy anything related, this time of year is best esp with using Amazon as people are Xmas shopping so someone might go via my site but end up getting a ton of Xmas presents which id get a %. 2k would be perfect for me, im not out to be rich, just comfortable with my life, never gonna be the guy to get married or have kids so small flat which round here is 120k. Not greedy, i love gaming, movies and even on 2k a month, id still be waiting til those are cheaper than full price. Min wage round here is 1k so here is hoping.

    2. Jordan Alexo

      Hard to say. I mean doing 2k per month with a website is very doable. You can even do a lot more money. However, it depends on the niche and on the products you are promoting. Now I doubt anyone will give 125k for a website that is doing 2k per month. Only if he has a website paying a lot more than that.

    3. Drewbles

      Thank you. Great video anyway, followed it all, only today finished getting my Yoast SEO stuff to green. Sometimes hard to accept that some people are genuine and want to help people. Still unsure about the original guy who advised me on setting this all up as he claims to make over 2k a month per website and his got 5 on the go, claims to have hired two full time people to help out and was offered 125k for one of his websites, yet he found me via a matched betting site

    4. Jordan Alexo

      If I did this video nowadays, I would have changed a lot of aspects from this video. Yes, getting search engine traffic to a new website takes a long time. At least, 4 to 6 months until you notice a trickle and for that you need to weekly update it with fresh content. The only way around this is purchasing an old domain name. You have several auctions out there. This way, an old domain name has already passed Google sandbox.
      About social media networks. I only recommend Youtube and Facebook. Youtube is great because you can rank your video quite easily; and facebook is good if you are planning in using paid Ads there. In most cases, all the rest is pretty much a waste of time. If you want to make money online then I also recommend investing in your education.
      You simply won’t make with only free content because there’s a lot of non-sense out there. If you want to promote products from other people aka affiliate marketing through your website or video then I recommend checking my “Affiliate Marketing Revolution Review” here:
      And my affiliate marketing tutorial here:
      Any other question just leave it right below, thanks and good luck!

    I purchased a website but I don’t know where I can download a free website content to my site. I totally newbie. Let me know if you have any suggestions. Thank you

    1. Moses X

      There’s also people who can rank your website to the first page. Here’s a link to one of them.

    2. Jordan Alexo

      You either write fresh content or hire a writer. However, I don’t recommend for you to copy and paste content from another website to yours. Your website simply won’t rank.

  37. Wen Chieh Chen

    If I make my content rich with more images and videos, but the loading time will increase as well. How can I make the balance of these two?

    1. Jordan Alexo

      You should put your videos inside of your posts. Instead, 5 or more all appearing in the front page of your website, which makes it then run slowly. In regards to images, you should reduce their quality. You can do this inside of your photo editor. You want a decent quality and smaller file size.
      You also have a plugin that you may use time to time called, ewww image optimizer. It optimizes the images in your website. You can use this plugin once and then reinstall it, and then install it again when you need it. This way you don’t overload your website with plugins.
      I hope that helps When Chieh Chen, good luck!

  39. XCLU CEE

    Please, can I use a keyword in too many different articles on my website?

    1. Jordan Alexo

      You should avoid using the repetition of the same keyword. Because it makes your articles not easily readable for your visitors. You want to keep your visitors engaged in your website as much time as possible. Besides, you run the risk of getting penalized by Google if they think you are doing keyword stuffing.

  40. Yebo Ego

    question – how often I gotta optimize seo ? Is 1 per half year enough or every month ?? Thanks

    1. Moses X

      If your still having trouble here’s a link to the person who got my website to rank front page.

    2. Yebo Ego

      ah thanks for it bro

    3. Jordan Alexo

      You should at least new post content in a weekly basis. This content should be SEO.

  41. Giobel Koi Center

    does hosting in a good hosting provider also improves SEO?

    1. Giobel Koi Center

      agreed, thank you Jordan

    2. Jordan Alexo

      I recommend for you to go to websites that already request guest posts. Sometimes they have section for this purpose. Or at least where you see guest posts from other authors and asking the owner of the website if you could write something for them.

      I no longer care about building backlinks. It is way too time consuming and I prefer to waste my time doing profitable things. Now I suggest for you to publish posts (+1000 words) on a weekly basis on your website. You eventually will start receiving some organic traffic without even needing backlinks. Google simply loves a lot of content. Plus, build your brand outside of your website by using already well known public platforms, such as:

      1st – Youtube
      2nd – Facebook
      3rd – Twitter
      4th – Amazon

      Exactly in that order. Good luck!

    3. Giobel Koi Center

      yes, you are right, so what is the easy way to get backlinks?

    4. Jordan Alexo

      Yes, it is a good way to get traffic from another website and possibly a good backlink. However, sometimes it is hard to get guest posts from more popular websites and you need to do a lot of ass kissing.

    5. Giobel Koi Center

      Jordan Alexo thank you
      What do you think of guest post?

  42. Keiko Alloui

    I’ve run a test using CloudFlare and MAXCDN and found the MAXCDN services if more reliable and much better. I don’t get anything from MAXCDN, so my recommendations are not bias.

    Also, the lest extensions/plugins you have installed, the faster the page will load, provided you have optimized, CSS and JavaScript for speed.

    Never use images for your navigational menu, page background nor anything else except for images you want to use for your article, and of course, your logo.

    Even though I never used Yoast SEO, I highly recommend using it.

    For your page title, do not go by the maximum character limit but use Pixel Width instead because for example, the capital letter ‘L’ has a higher pixel width than a lowercase ‘ l ‘. Start your Title tag with your primary keyword | Then your secondary keyword or something descriptive using semantic keyword | then the ‘Brand’ but only, and only if you have space. If not, don’t worry about putting your brand.

    Content – You can have a 2500 words page and still not rank. 800 words with quality and relevant content is much better than 2500 or 5000 words page that doesn’t offer anything to the users nor the search engine bots.

    Does this still apply in 2017 ?

    1. Jordan Alexo

    Hey Jordan can you suggest a very good seo software

    1. Jordan Alexo

      Moz bar is pretty useful, for keyword suggestion: ubersuggest, Google keyword planner, keyword.io,

      Paid tools: QuakeSEO, KWfinder

      You commonly use a variety of tools when it comes to free option so you may find long-tail keywords. However, with paid ones commonly they bring everything in one pack making the process of finding good keywords less time consuming. Good luck

    hi joradan can u please tel how one can promote coaching center

    1. Jordan Alexo

      You can build organic search traffic for the main keywords you want. It will take time and a lot of content. But you can write how to guides and along those articles always promote your coaching services. I’d also build a Youtube channel. Where I’d make Youtube videos and in the end of them always promote my coaching services. Basically, spam in every piece of content your coaching services. Another platform I suggest is Facebook.
