    Social Media Marketing

    Really depends on the business. For a lot of service oriented businesses, people are not going to be looking for it on YouTube, Twitter, or Facebook. If I want to shop for a new life insurance policy, I'm not going to look for it on Facebook. I'm going to Google. If I want to find a local bar that people seem to like, I might go to Facebook. Probably Yelp first to be honest. Even Google then. Once I find a place I like, I'll probably follow them on Facebook, but that is very unlikely to be my first point of contact.

    WF promoting Dan Lok

    So to summarize... Dan is basically a motivational speaker. Lots of tips on taking action and giving you reasons to take action. Very little direction on what that action should be. And WF is still noob land run by other noobs. I think that about sums the thread up. Did I miss anything?

    SEMrush SEO Writing Assistant

    Nope. She definitely does not compose content in WP. Hate messing around with anything in their editor. And I remembered that Yoast had a reading score feature, but didn't realize they use the same one. It's been a long time since I used Yoast for anything on the page/post level. SEMrush's tool does a better job all around.
  4. Are that many people really not using Tag Manager? What the heck are web designers doing?

    Update to Forum Features Post

    Nice work Ashley.
  6. I'm not real big on things like Yoast's recommendations when you are creating a post. Tools like that usually offer a lot of bad advice. I saw someone in a Facebook group recently mention SEMrush SEO Writing Assistant. It's an addon you can use with Google Docs. It's not a half bad little tool. It scores your article on reading difficulty. It uses something called the Flesch reading-ease score formula. It's not something SEMrush came up with. However, SEMrush takes a look at the top 10 for the keyword you choose and scores them to give you a target score to shoot for. Your top competition has articles on a 10-12th grade level. That's what you should shoot for. Or maybe it is something more technical on a college or college graduate level and that is what you need to go after. It also pulls up related keywords that you might want to consider adding to your text. All in all, not a half bad free tool... Err.. maybe not free. I think I had to enter my SEMrush account login to use it. I cannot remember now.
  7. I hate that so many mobile/responsive designs are going to this by default.
  8. I was looking at some really competitive keywords that according to Google's Keyword Planner are searched around 10,000 times per month. I ran an AdWords campaign and found the volume on almost all of these to be lower than that. It got me thinking about what kind of an impact rank trackers could potentially have on search volume. I use a rank tracking platform that tracks keywords daily. Think about a really competitive search term. Conservatively, say that 50 individuals/businesses are going after that term aggressively and tracking their progress. If they are all using daily rank trackers, that is an average of about 1,500 additional searches on the term each month. On a larger scale, think about something like the term "auto insurance". How many local insurance agents are tracking a term like that on a local level, which would feed into the national search volume? I did not bother to look up the search volume for that term, but I would guess it is in the range of 800,000 to over 1 million searcher per month. Would it be unreasonable to think that 100,000-150,000 of those queries are just automated rank trackers? Do you think Google has any mechanism in place for detecting these and not counting them in the search volume they report? Do you think they even care?
  9. They sent out an email. I deleted it. They made a blog post about it too. https://blog.jvzoo.com/the-power-of-truth/ I heard heard some whispers about it before. I think something along the lines of E. Brain Rose and some other stock holders were not paid what they thought they were going to be paid or what they thought they should be paid. Not really sure of the details, but I'm sure someone could dig around for the court filings if they wanted to.
  10. I did not mean to imply in any way that you will find nothing but high quality products at JVZoo. I was commenting on your comment about them being desperate. I think they have enough sellers that when a blatant scammer is pointed out to them like this one that they would give them the boot and it would not effect their bottom line. On the other hand, I just saw recently that they are in a big legal battle, so maybe they are more desperate than I realized.
  11. If you are talking about Warrior Forum, then yes. Even without having access to their backend, it is pretty obvious to any observer that they are not making much money since being bought. JVZoo though? I don't think they are desperate. They seem to have tons of new sellers all the time. Who knows though? Maybe they know if they went through cleaning up stuff like that it would be a huge chunk out of their sellers.
  12. I will never understand why sites go soft on these people. Ban them and do everything you can to make sure they don't come back. It's not that complicated.

    Website Security

    Not my area of expertise, but as far as plugins go iThemes Security is pretty good. It does give you the option to rename your WP content folder as well as change the login URL from the default of www.yourwordpresssite.com/wp-admin. Makes it a little harder to get in. Make sure you run all Wordpress and plugin updates. Most of them are security related updates to address a security risk they found.

    WP Templates + Javascript Menu Issues

    Like Mike said above, Google has gotten better at reading Javascript, but it is inconsistent. I'm not sure how they are picking and choosing which Javascript to parse and which to ignore. Also, like Mike mentioned, if the template you are buying has a demo page, check out their cache and look at the text-only version to see what Google is and is not indexing. In the Google search bar type: cache:templatesite.com/demo-url You will see an option in a grey box at the top that says "text-only version". Click that.
  15. 1. Yes. Search engines will not be able to access anything that is behind a sign-in. 2. From a security perspective, I cannot think of any advantage a subdomain or subfolder structure offers over the other. 3. Nope. Your visitors are not going to pay attention to that. It does not factor into their buying decision at all. Depending on what platform you are using for your site, there might be some additional work for you to do if you use subdomains in order to make sure your buyers can get into the course material. Most platforms that I am aware of do not keep people signed in across subdomains by default. Most platforms you have to have separate installs, such as Wordpress. 4. I cannot really think of any reason that using a subdomain would provide any kind of a value or benefit.
