5 Quick Free New SEO Hacks For Monday September 8 2014


1. Do NOT trust Google’s site: and info: search operators – they’re showing very inconsistent and funky readings right now.

You may, for example, assume that a PBN blog of yours has been deindexed (Google has been vicious on that lately) when you’re just getting unreliable readings and the site is fine.

Clear your cache, use VPNs (landing page seo) and check over a few days.

Alternatives?

“The YouTube ads keyword tool will be disabled on September 1st. We recommend using Display Planner in AdWords for AdWords for video keyword suggestions.”

4. Looking for proven ‘hot’ content ideas, try these 2 sites:

[a] Quicksprout.com (click on ‘Social Media Analysis’ after you enter the URL/s of heavyweights in your niche) – this pic is from an upworthy.com check – but don’t just look at WHAT was shared but HOW the site motivated readers to share that content:

[b] Buzzsumo.com
