There are many attributes that an SEO must have in order to be successful, but one of the most important ones is being willing to improve all the time. Improvement doesn't always come from making things right. In fact, the only way you'll really improve is by failing, over and over again.   However, when it comes to SEO, a mistake might pass by unnoticed. You might not have any idea that you're doing something wrong. Now, there are thousands of horrible mistakes that you could be making, [...]
Even if you don't know what they actually are, if you use the internet, one of the first things you'll stumble upon are URLs. We also call them addresses sometimes. You probably don't spend much time thinking about them, but the World Wide Web is actually built  from the ground up on URLs. Every time you access or link to a web page, you use a URL.   Google implied that "URLs must die". But, is a world without URLs possible?     Follow along and let's jump a little deepe [...]
Although there's a big chance you haven't used them, I'm sure you've heard about the notion of Press Releases. They used to be very popular in the SEO community back in the day. But are press releases still relevant for SEO in 2019? Is it worth spending your time dealing with a press release?   The short answer is yes. Press Releases are still relevant and probably will be for a long time to come, not only for search engine optimization, but for marketing, in general. However, many webmas [...]
When launching a new website, there are some things that seem unimportant at first, but turn out to really be an issue later on. One of them is the WWW vs. Non-WWW issue.   When you first think about it, it doesn't sound like much of a deal. You might not even care at all about it. When you first research it, you'll probably learn around the web that it doesn't really matter for SEO.     However, if you start digging deeper, you'll discover a lot of things you didn't know.

Google's advice about SEO should be the best in the business, right? I mean, they pretty much created it, so they definitely know what they're talking about, don't they? Well, that's pretty much true. But when it comes to such a big company like Google, even officials sometimes contradict themselves.   Also, it's understandable that Google often keeps things secret. If they told people everything about the algorithm, people would probably abuse the system and Google doesn't want that to h [...]
Owning a Google MyBusiness page can be a great way to get your business listed multiple times on Google. It is an essential asset for any local business owner, but sometimes it can get confusing.   If you're the only business in town, you're always going to show up first. However, if there are hundreds of similar businesses nearby, it can get quite frustrating, especially if you're new in the game. Some people pay marketing agencies a lot of money to get their listings to the top. What [...]
Ranking high takes both time and effort. But there are some SEO techniques out there that are easy to implement and will definitely bring some results. The best part? You can probably do everything yourself.   Spoiler alert, though: many of them include basics. During the years we have observed something rather shocking. Many clients that I've picked up had paid big time for search engine optimization services in the past. To my surprise, however, basic things like keywords in titles were [...]
Google Updates. We've all heard about them and, to some extent, we all fear them. Even if you're 100% clean and always follow the Google guidelines, you can still suffer from the dirty work of others.   But what do you do when a new Google Update arises? How do you know it's the cause of a traffic drop on your website? What are the steps you need to take in order to determine that?   Well, keep reading, because in this article we'll discuss the steps you should take when a new Goog [...]
If you use SEO to promote your website, you most probably have heard of PBNs (Private Blog Networks). The concept isn't very difficult to understand (although it is difficult to execute), but with the overload of information out there, you might be conflicted.   Do PBNs still work in 2018? Are there any risks? Well, the short answers are yes and yes. So should you build one? That's up to you. However, this article has to purpose to help you make an educated decision. This won't be a guide [...]
Status code 404 is probably the most common HTTP error that people encounter when they're browsing the web. If you've been using the internet for over a year, chances that you haven't encountered one yet are pretty low. They're very common.   Normally, people don't pay too much attention to them. As a user, you will get frustrated at most and hit the back button or close the tab. As a webmaster, however, more things might be at stake. Many website owners ask themselves if 404 pages hurt t [...]
