Video Can Improve Your SEO

video-seoOne of the most mysterious things about SEO to some people is that video can improve your SEO in amazing ways.

I know many people do not believe me when I talk about this, so in this blog post I am going to explain to you the many ways that video can help your website’s SEO or help you rank in Google in general.

Videos and SEO

Just by producing a video for your website you can improve the SEO enormously. Sounds crazy I know.

In fact, if you need some video marketing ideas check out this post with some great tips for your next video production.

But here is the thing. Google likes to display videos in the top ten of many search results, so why not have that video be yours.

You just need to produce a compelling video and do the standard on page SEO you would for any video and you can rank on Google in no time.

The video you produce and the keywords that you target are obviously an important factor, because you cannot rank for very competitive words just because you have a video. But it certainly can help.

YouTube Videos and SEO

As you might be aware, Google owns Youtube. In fact it was one of the biggest and most successful purchases they have made in their history, after conquering online advertising.

Another important thing you might be aware of as well is that Youtube is one of the world’s biggest search engine. And we are not talking about discovering videos on Google, but Youtube’s private search.

So by having your videos on Youtube you can get people to your website by getting found on Youtube’s search.

But what is also interesting is that quite often, Google will not only feature video in the top 10 of their search results, but they will prefer to feature videos hosted on Youtube.

After all, they own Youtube as we just discussed. So it kinda makes sense to have a link between their different divisions.

How can you leverage this fact?

Start hosting some of your videos on Youtube. Even if you are having trouble competing for s specific keyword in Google, if you can instead get a youtube video to rank highly (hopefully number one) then perhaps you can get it into the top ten search results as well. Just because it is on Youtube. Fantastic right?

Other SEO Factors

Google is also favoring interactive websites with a lot of visuals today because they hold people’s attention.

So it also pays to have not only amazing visuals (graphics, images etc) but also video. As often as you can in your blog posts, or product pages. Put a video in there, and Google will look favorably on you. Trust me, It is worth a shot.


So now you know the many ways that SEO is affected by Video. Creating your own video, having a video on your blog post or hosting a video on Youtube are all options that can help you improve your rankings and SEO in general.

So why not get started with video today and see what a difference it can make to your website’s SEO.

LeadPages and SEO – Does it Work?

When you are trying to increase conversions on your website, one of the tools you might try using is conversion rate optimization.

You could add some opt-in forms to your homepage and blog posts, or you could create some specific landing pages to capture leads.

One of the best tools for this kind of things is LeadPages.

By the way, if you need to learn more about this tool, here is a great LeadPages review that provides lots of great information, pricing and tips.

How Can Landing Pages Work With SEO

LeadPages SEO and landing pages

The first decision you need to make is whether or not you even want your landing pages indexed.

If you are driving traffic directly from advertising campaigns like Facebook, Twitter or Google Adwords, then this might not be a great idea.

The content on the lead pages might not be worthy of indexing if you are only capturing email addressed.

On the other hand, if you are using such tools as LeadPages to create sales pages or other useful content, then SEO might be worth considering.

Luckily great tools like this have seriously considered this in their creation, and are fully SEO compliant.

They have the fields you need to fill in to do perfect SEO, so that is not concern at all.

Of course, if you are using WordPress and including your lead pages that way, you can always use the standard WordPress plugins like Yoast or All in one.

So then you would obviously have no SEO related problems.

Creating a new Website with Leadpages or Launch Pages

If you are just starting out and have not yet created a complete website or found a place to host it, a tool like LeadPages can also save the day.

You can create coming soon landing pages and also get those indexed with Google too. Great for SEO, even if you don’t have a website yet.

Of course, you need to purchase your domain name from somewhere like NameCheap or GoDaddy, so that you are not using the generated subdomain that LeadPages provides:

This would obviously not help your SEO and getting started. So please at the very least, go out and get your own domain name, even if you are not ready for the investment or hosting of website.

In the future, once you have the time and money, you can then go out and develop your website, and your domain will already be available in Google and starting to earn some SEO.

Working with External Tools for Websites

So in general when we are talking about on page SEO you need to be careful what exactly you have control over when you are using external tools like these.

But if you go with a well developed tool and a professional company that understands the importance of SEO elements within the site and pages, then you should have no problems at all.

Making sure that this is the case though is something that only you can do. Once you have paid for the tool, and perhaps used it extensively, it will be too late to roll everything back without losing something.

The Most Effective SEO in 2014

In this post I am going to tell you about the most effective techniques for SEO in 2014

SEO in 2014 has turned into something completely different to what SEO was back in past years.

If you have been in SEO for a while you will know that it is SEO is constantly changing. In fact, some say that it is changing rapidly due to such factors as Google algorithm changes, which are rolled out sometimes on a weekly basis.

So if you’re looking to get high search results for your website and its pages, you really need to stay updated on the latest SEO techniques.

With that being said, this article will look into the top SEO techniques any webmaster can use for their website.

Black Hat is Out

black hat seoSEO in 2014 is a lot different than before. Many people used to use lots of black hat techniques in order to rank their pages.

Such black hat techniques as:

  • large link spamming
  • keyword stuffing
  • blog comment spamming
  • guest post spamming

do not work at all now. Even worse, using practices such as link spamming will often get your website penalized and even sandboxed by Google. This means they will rank you lower, or even de-index you. Something you definitely don’t want.

Thus, it is important to stay away from such black hat techniques if you want to make sure that your website stays safe for years to come.

Private Blog Networks Are In

One of the top SEO techniques right now is to build your own private blog network, or to hire someone else’s private blog network services. By using a private blog network, you allow yourself to get the largest amount of link juice from your personally owned websites. It’s known that Google likes website links from inside an article far more than any other type of link.

Building a private blog network is actually a very long and pain staking process. You will have to get a lot of expired domains with good PR and PA and then turn them into legitimate websites. Once you have got the websites up and running you need to update the website with articles that contain links back to your money site, making sure the anchor text contains a variation of the keyword you’re trying to rank for. Although it is a long process, private blog networks are by far one of the best techniques to use for SEO in 2014.

Blog Commenting Still Works

Another great technique any webmaster can use to rank their website is by using blog commenting. I am not talking about automated blog commenting, as that kind of thing will definitely hurt your website rankings.

What I am really talking about  is blog commenting manually on very relevant websites in your particular niche.

It’s also important to establish a personal connection with many of your competitors and or peers. Because these connections with pay off in the long run when they start linking to you because they know and trust what you blog about.

I have manually commented on many of my competitors websites with lots of positive and helpful messages. Sooner or later the webmaster of these bloggers became friendly towards me and even started linking back to my site.

So the positive result: I also got the link juice from a relevant blog comment, I also got a link from a competitor in my niche.

This is a top overlooked technique for SEO, and I highly recommend anyone to do this.

Relevant Directories are Still Ok

Something else small business or local business should still be doing is putting entries in relevant directories for their business.

Google sees this as a common and worthwhile thing to be doing.

However, do not over do this technique, because like anything SEO related, you will get slapped and lose rankings.

Be Careful Out There

These are only a few the tops highly relevant SEO techniques you can use for SEO in 2014.

Make sure that you always stay up to date on Google algorithm changes and act accordingly so you don’t get penalized and continue to make money from your website!

SEO Techniques For Your Blog

Google and SEO

There is a lot of misinformation out there regarding the best techniques you can use to rank your page highly on the Google SERPS.

Rest assured I have tried and tested all of them, and have figured out what SEO techniques truly work in boosting your blogs ranking.

Many people seem to be making the mistake of using SEO techniques that were used back in 2008 for today.

This is a really bad move as SEO techniques used in 2008 will often result in your page getting penalized, not boosted.

As such, I’ve created this article to inform you on the best SEO techniques you can use ñ that actually works!

Youtube Will Rank You Well

First of all, many people don’t realize how pivotal YouTube can be for boosting your sites Google rankings.

If you haven’t heard already, Google owns YouTube. And it is a known fact that having even one YouTube video in an article or on your site will boost your rankings significantly.

So if you create a YouTube channel dedicated to your website and fill it with great content, you will see a huge increase in rankings and organic traffic that comes with it.

Yes, it’s a lot of effort; however the effort you put in will allow you to get greatly rewarded with a rise in rankings. One that most people could never imagine.

Here are some specific tips that you might want to try:

Private Blog Networks

Another technique which is known to be one of the best in terms of boosting rankings is using a private blog network. Using PBNs is known to allow you to essentially manage your links with a few clicks.

What you do in a PBN is create a bunch of websites and link the articles that they contain to your money site (which is your most important site).

Doing solely this will allow you to get a very nice boost in rankings, however there is even more you can do. So please read on…

If you’re looking to really use the PBN route, you need to go and buy relevant expired domains for your niche.

This means you will have to buy an expired domain which is relevant to your niche and also has a high page rank and domain authority.

Buying such a domain will definitely set you back up to $100 or more, however building a site on these expired domains means that you are essentially creating a authority site that will be used purely to link to your websites.

Having such a site will greatly improve your rankings in such ways that any other method cannot hope to match.

You Need More Sites To Rank

Having just one site in your PBN however won’t change many things. The key to most SEO techniques is by having sheer numbers.

Thus, the more sites you have in your PBN, the greater the impact you will see in your websites SERPS.

It’s a good rule of thumb that for every 10 sites linking in your PBN you will be able to get one low competition keyword to the front page of Google.

This is a very good deal, especially if you are trying to rank for relatively low competition, high CPC keywords.

These SEO techniques are a few of the best techniques you can use to boost your blogs Google rankings.

Feel free to use these techniques as much as you want, and please report back if they help you reach page one of Google!
