  1. Today
  2. Hi Ingie, hanks for the response, looking to identify all the pages and also internal oinks between them.
  3. Yesterday
  4. You mean like what theme, plugins and stuff their using or which pages have the most internal links?
  5. Hi All, Can anyone recommend a tool to crawl a competitor's website and identify the structure of it? Not looking for backlinks etc just how the site is put together?
  6. Last week
  7. First video launched yesterday. It was a bit awkward. Didn't exactly flow all that well. Was definitely put together more by engineers than marketing people. Funny enough for being titled as a series about myth busting, I don't remember them bringing up a single SEO myth.
  8. I heard the White House is going to add tariffs to foreign cab drivers...
  9. Personally, I love that people think keyword cannibalization is something they should be worried about. Let them run around de-optimizing pages I would otherwise have to compete with. Lol.
  10. Earlier
  11. Could be. The share price has been hammered, but it's hard to tell whether that's because of investors waking up to its prospects, or it's just being hammered along with the market in general.
  12. I can't believe I never knew this existed. It's so simple and yet works so well. Thank you for sharing this.
  13. I'm with you guys. Keyword cannibalization is one of the more dumb concepts I can remember seeing pop up in the SEO community. I have many keywords with multiple pages ranking to prove it.
  14. It is a great tool if you are interested in optimizing for speed and usability. Right from the horse's mouth so to speak. Like you, I'm surprised more people are not actively using it.
  15. I'm glad to see someone else is feeling this way too. I don't understand why anyone would think keyword cannibalization is a thing. Sites regularly have multiple pages ranking for the same keywords. What keyword cannibalization is basically saying is that sites are awarded X amount of ranking power for a keyword by Google and if you have multiple pages targeting that keyword, then X gets divided up among them. However, if you only have one page targeting the keyword, that page gets the full power of X. If you have been studying and working with SEO for more than 2 weeks, you would know that is not how Google works at all. The only place this could have some merit is if you have Y number of internal and external links pointing to these pages and you consolidate them to one page. That would certainly show a boost. That's not what the cannibals (my new nickname for them) are saying though. They are advocating "de-optimizing" the other competing pages by taking the keyword out of title tags, headings, content, etc.
  16. Loved A2 Hosting. Used them for a couple of years on one site. Unfortunately, it was impacted by this event. I took it down and moved it to Siteground now. I won't use them ever again after this.
  17. This concept seems to be jumping up in a lot of SEO circles recently. I am having a hard time wrapping my head around it. I thought the idea was always to rank as many pages as possible for a search phrase, but this keyword cannibalization thing says that having multiple pages targeting the same phrase could actually be holding back all of those pages. That doesn't make sense to me. Each page is it's own unique entity. How could one interfere with another's chance to rank for a search term? Does anyone actually believe this is a real thing? Or is it just another buzzword SEOs are using to try to look smarter than everyone else?
  18. I've worked in corporate IT for years and one of the most important areas we would wargame was Disaster Recovery (DR). Most of the UK banks have a DR site which can spin up almost right away. The "secret" to good DR is working out what is the barebones you need to get your business up and running again, only focus on what you really need, the bits that make you money. So if you you have a vps that's doing link building for you it doesn't have to be up and running. Where as your money site does. More than happy to share other pointers etc.
  19. One of the more reputable and reliable hosting companies out there came under attack by a hacker and were forced to take their servers down. They have been down for over a week now. https://www.zdnet.com/article/windows-server-hosting-provider-still-down-a-week-after-ransomware-attack/ If you are not familiar with them, A2 is not some crappy bottom run hosting company. They have long been considered one of the better VPS hosting providers available. This is why you need to have a backup plan for any site you really care about. If my main business site went down, I could be back up on another host within an hour.
  20. Just giving this thread a bump as the Uber IPO is apparently being priced this week, and in case some on here are thinking of getting in on it. As far as I can tell, nothing has changed for the company's prospects, except that more and more Uber drivers are joining class action lawsuits against the company. As with every other IPO, caveat emptor*, however in the case of Uber, that warning is exponentially more pronounced. * Buyer beware.

    Grammarly?

    When I say "better" writer I probably mean a more confident writer if that makes sense. Think the paid version comes with plugins for the full version of word.
  22. New series coming out from Google itself.
  23. Yeah I would definitely disguise it pretty well. I’d prefer not to have to resort to selling links but whenever I buy a good expired domain, no matter how safe it looks with great history. Decent links, google refuses to rank it. I always resort to just swapping the content over to a fresh domain and it automatically starts ranking higher than where it was at on the expired domain. I just want to have some sort of backup plan on a way to at least get my money back if I buy a domain and it continues on with my bad steak of using an expired domain that just don’t do well.
  24. I get asked frequently which of these tools I prefer for checking links. For some time I preferred Majestic because even though I'm not a believer in 3rd party metrics, theirs were clearly better than the ones at Ahrefs and lightyears ahead of anything from Moz. If I want to get an impression of something at a glance, TF and CF were okay to use. For a long time, Ahrefs has had the bigger index, but when I compare domains between them, what I often found was that both found the same quality links. Ahrefs was just crawling deeper and finding more of the spammy or lower quality stuff. A couple of years ago, I switched to Ahrefs though because of the suite of options they offer. Majestic is basically still just a link checker, where Ahrefs has a lot more tools for keyword research, audits, etc. All of that being said, I don't really follow Matthew Woodward these days, but an interesting post popped up in my Facebook feed today. https://www.matthewwoodward.co.uk/experiments/ahrefs-majestic-seo-1-million-domain-showdown/ The part of it that is most interesting and I would recommend looking at is how Majestic over inflates its link counts. If you are considering one of these tools or are a current subscriber to Majestic, I would take a peak at this.
  25. This website was launched by Google in November of last year. https://web.dev/ I'm really surprised it doesn't get talked about more in SEO circles. I hardly have seen anyone even mention it. It works with Lighthouse and is a great little audit tool. I don't believe that everything in it is a ranking factor or something to worry about, but considering that it is put out by Google itself you should probably assume that if it is not a ranking factor today, it is something they are trying to move towards in the future. I have seen some good results by trying to improve things in this report on client sites. Definitely worth taking a look at if you haven't been.
  26. It can bring in some money as long as people find it. I wouldn't do a website and announce that you are selling links anywhere on it. You can get away with a directory that sells placements, but you don't want a "normal" website that says, "Hey buy a link here!"
