By |2020-12-02T12:56:55+00:00December 2nd, 2020|Marketing Strategies Deconstructed|Comments Off on Why WpEngine Sux and Kinsta Rules

Presently I am being forced to work with WpEngine.  A client has set up with them.  Why?  I just don’t know. Someone missed the memo about comparing hosting before choosing.  So many issues with their offering I almost don’t know where to start, so I’ll just blurt out problems a random.

You can’t set up in […]

Native Advertising – Just shock junk and Arbitrage Schemes

By |2020-11-25T17:45:36+00:00November 25th, 2020|Marketing Strategies Deconstructed|Comments Off on Native Advertising – Just shock junk and Arbitrage Schemes

When I look at Taboola Ads – it seems a mess of Arbitrage and Shock advertising. I open up any news site and am bombarded with mountains of this junk advertising.

In 2007 Google shut down sites using Arbitrage to game their system. eg. Sites Paying 2 cents for a […]

Check your backlinks, are actually backlinks

By |2020-11-25T17:26:22+00:00November 25th, 2020|News|Comments Off on Check your backlinks, are actually backlinks

When I first started doing SEO back in 1999 (Yep) SEO people quickly realised links were important.  In those days it was the wild wild west of link building.  Link buying, exchanges, hidden links.  Links in footers from web developers, links in widgets.  Just about everything worked.  Google was not really checking whether links were […]

What are the most important SEO Factors?

By |2019-11-25T15:23:55+00:00November 25th, 2019|Marketing Strategies Deconstructed|Comments Off on What are the most important SEO Factors?

I get this question asked more often than any other.  Additionally, when I analyse the SEO issue of a client’s website I am often asked to provide a weighting of the problems.  What should be tackled first, what is going to have the biggest impact.

Both are fair questions and it’s true some SEO factors have […]

By |2019-11-13T21:23:33+00:00November 13th, 2019|Marketing Strategies Deconstructed|Comments Off on Making a Super SEO Friendly Directory using WordPress

I’ve made some videos detailing how some of the big players in directory, aggregator and marketplace niches have been able to optimise their SEO.

Their sites are super fast, page rank is funnelled and hoarded and Google Crawl Budget is closely guarded.

All doable when you have a big budget, and a big programming team.  But what […]

Onpage SEO & Technical Issues – Deliveroo Germany | Video 3

By |2019-02-06T12:04:53+00:00January 31st, 2019|Marketing Strategies Deconstructed|0 Comments

(Video reloaded due to sound issues with the original)

In looking at Deliveroo’s backlinks and objectively comparing them with their opposition, it became clear to me Deliveroo Germany both has LESS links than the opposition, and less DIVERSITY in their links as well.  Their back-links are mainly from restaurants, where the oppositions have restaurant back-links(more) but […]

By |2019-02-01T11:48:48+00:00January 31st, 2019|Marketing Strategies Deconstructed|0 Comments

Back-links and rankings were once almost able to be linearly graphed.  The more back-links your website had, the more keywords your website could rank for… and the higher they would rank.  Deep-linking proved useful, anchor texts were important.  The amount of links, rather than the quality was the main factor.

Now?  Things are just as clear, […]
