Today, we're going to break down the SEMrush URL Organic Positions Report.     
2014 is going to be an exciting year for SEOs. After Google’s Panda and Penguin updates, SEOs were forced away from many old link building habits and into the creative world of quality content.The Hummingbird update reinforced this transition from building links to earning links through creating good content and becoming an authority.Last year, infographics, videos, blog posts and web graphics took center stage to garner links.
Infographics are one of the best white hat ways to gain a great amount of backlinks to your site. They could go viral and bring a good amount of traffic to your website with just some basic infographic marketing tactics. Though, chances are, they won’t be able to gain even half the amount of links they possibly could have unless you leveraged some techniques specifically crafted for getting powerful links.
I am tempted to think that the arrival of Ray Kurzweil and his singular focus on the Singularity is what brought out the “sensitive New Age geek” in Google. However, the touchy feely user experienced-focused Search Borg came on the scene long before Ray took the position of Director of Engineering at Google with a project to teach computers to write poetry. If nothing else, we will have something to look forward to at poetry slams.
As many of you know, SEMrush features video tutorials on our website and SEOQuakeTeam YouTube page. After receiving some feedback, we discovered users would also like a text script and screenshots to accompany these videos. So, here you go!Here is the first in the series: Domain vs. Domain Report.
Anyone who has spent any time dealing with Search Engine Optimization will come across an article touting the death of SEO. In fact, if you Google the phrase “SEO is dead,” you’ll come up with more than 53 million results. What’s even more startling is what happens when you search for the phrase, “Email is dead.” A Google search turns up 1.4 billion results!And we all know that if you read it on the Internet, it has to be true, right?Not exactly.
You know how the old saying goes: "You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink." The same holds true for your marketing campaigns.You can spend months creating the perfect campaign to reach your target audience, but what happens once potential clients call your company or business? Is your team getting the information you need from callers to track the success of your current campaign and optimize future campaigns.
Hosting any type of contest is a great way to improve engagement and gain visibility for your brand. But it certainly doesn’t come without a lot of work.When you’re giving away any type of prize, you have to make sure nothing can cause the contest to be unfair. This means you need to ask yourself a few initial questions to make sure things run smoothly: What are my goals for the contest? Is hosting a contest really going to benefit my specific company/niche.
Those of us working in SEO for a long time understand that it’s a constantly moving and shifting milieu. We have to keep up with and adapt to changes as they come along. And we have to realize that when we hear the “SEO Is Dead” knoll chiming again that it means “Ignore.”SEO will always be an important way to communicate with search engines. For example, for the foreseeable future, it’s still important to have critical on-page factors like titles and Meta descriptions.
Keyword research can be done in many ways and with many different tools. Today I am writing about the tool I happen to love using, which is SEMrush.For web agencies that offer search engine marketing services, it is a tool that can provide tremendous value to both clients and staff. Over the years, I have relied heavily on SEMrush when developing a new search marketing campaign. It can be used to set up a new paid search engine marketing campaign or even an organic SEM campaign.
