The One SEO Factor That Can Make or Break Your Rankings

Did you know that only 4% of people believe that backlinks can barely influence your rankings?

That means a whopping 96% disagrees with them. These people believe that link building is one of the best ways of making a mark on the top of the SERPs.

But if you think that acquiring just any type of link can get you there, you’ve got another thing coming.

While some links can catapult you to the summit, others go the opposite direction. So, rather than pursue every backlink opportunity that comes your way, you need to distinguish the good from the bad.

In this post, let’s look at this one SEO factor that can make or break your rankings: the quality of your link profile.

Let’s get the ball rolling.

What are the links?

Links can either be internal or externalFirst, let’s cover internal links. These are links that connect to internal pages of the same domain.

Here’s an example from Mondovo’s blog post on SEO content writing.

Content Writing

When you click the link, you’ll be sent to another page on the same blog.

Simple, right?

Internal links matter because it passes on traffic and PageRank to other pages in your site. Search engine crawlers will also have an easier time discovering them.

If you have a high number of internal links that point to a specific page, you’re sending Google a signal. You’re telling them that your page is important.

As long as you created this link naturally, Google will give that page a nod. Meanwhile, external links are links that point you to a place outside a domain.

If these links point you outside of your site, you can refer to them as outbound links. And if they are pointing to you from another site, you can refer to them as inbound links or backlinks.

How Automation Dictates the Success of Your Email Marketing Strategies? [INFOGRAPHIC]

When you say email marketing, what you really mean? It is nothing but a strategy to drive conversions. You will subtly use the right messages and context to push your customers forward in the sales funnel, with an ultimate aim to persuade them to complete the purchase.

For this, you need to devise an email strategy for every stage of buying that the subscriber would be in, as that will help them with just the content they want to read at the moment.

However, what makes life difficult for the email marketer is understanding the customer’s buying journey and manually sending appropriate emails at the right time with the right intent.

To make things easier, you need to use email automation, which is nothing but a marketing tool that lets you send automated emails based on certain triggers. It helps in gauging the current mood of the customer and send in emails that connect with them immediately.

How does automation work? Well, the first thing that triggers an automated email is the behavior of the subscriber. There is a goal that is written in the automation algorithm. Once this is ticked off, then the automated email is sent to the particular customer. It is as simple as that.

The Top 8 Content Distribution Ideas to Meet Your Brand’s Goals in 2019

Content Distribution Ideas

You are doing everything right, but still, your content is not having the impact you had envisioned. There is a massive amount of content- articles, videos, photos, etc posted on the Internet and social media every second. That is a lot of noise and you need to be heard above the din to be effective. 

Consider this: according to BuzzSumo’s Content Trends Report 2018, a majority of the content gets zero backlinks. Only authoritative research gets more links over time. An analysis of 100 million posts published in 2017 revealed that social sharing has decreased by half since 2015.  

What’s more, here are the number of blogs posted at the time of writing this article. The screenshot is taken from Worldometers.info and gives you a fair idea of the huge amount of content that is daily generated on the internet and the competition you are dealing with.

Just posting doesn’t make your content effective no matter how well written and informative it may be. What matters is the exposure it gets and this is only possible if you have a good content distribution strategy in place.  

In this article, we have discussed some content distribution ideas which can help you to create an effective plan for content distribution for your business.
