Having a healthy amount of high quality WordPress comments has its advantages, providing value both to your users, as well as having SEO benefits. Creating fake WordPress comments is somewhat of a “blackhat” technique from an SEO perspective, but I challenged myself to create as legitimate of a way possible to create high quality comments on my blog under various psuedos, all while looking as natural as possible.
I make no guarantee that this is an effective method for SEO purposes, nor do I encourage manipulating search engines with shady techniques; this article is for informational purposes only.
Let’s get started!
Infographics are without a doubt an excellent way to build backlinks by submitting your piece to an infographic gallery, with a link back to your site as the source. They are also entertaining and fun to read, which gives the majority of infographic websites great readership.
I’ve accumulated and compiled a massive list of 100 of the top infographic gallery submission websites over the years to help get the ball rolling on making your latest infographic go viral.
Note: The majority of these are free submissions, but some of the larger websites may require a submission fee. Please take care to read each of the website’s guidelines before submitting, as not to spam them; some websites only allow certain types of infographics, so save everyone some time and increase your chances of publication by thinking before submitting.
Without further ado, here is the list:
A couple of months ago, I purchased a software that a friend of mine recommended to me called Email Verifier Professional by email-unlimited.com. The software is built to verify a large list of emails to determine if the email is active and alive or not. This would be useful for many scenarios, including cleaning newsletter lists of inactive emails, reducing costs for sending emails, and more.
I decided to pull the trigger and purchase it after playing with their demo. After a couple months of using the software, I have to say I am very dissatisfied with it.
Boomerang is one of the most valuable tools in a business man’s arsenal. Getting email reminders when somebody hasn’t responded to you helps remember important email threads so you don’t have to. At the moment, Boomerang is a browser extension for Gmail only. What about users who don’t use Gmail, and use a desktop email app such as Mac Mail, Sparrow, or Thunderbird? What about users who have a Yahoo or Hotmail email address? Thankfully, a new app has just been released called Laytr.
Laytr – A Great Boomerang Alternative
Laytr (at the time of writing) is still in open beta, but from our tests, it seems to do exactly what we need. Laytr works a bit different than Boomerang; instead of installing a browser extension, Laytr works by emailing them directly by CCing a Laytr.com email address. Laytr sees your email, and depending on which email you send a message to, it logs the amount of time you’ve specified in your email and reminds you about your email thread at a later date.
Optimizing your URL structure has always been a very crucial aspect to onsite SEO optimization. It is highly debated which permalink structures and plugins do the best job at keeping your permalink slug looking natural and not over-optimized, but most techniques are dated and are not nearly as effective anymore.
This technique will show you how to optimize your SEO permalink slugs to keep your URL looking natural and optimized for best results.
1. Use the proper permalink structure
While there are hundreds of different permalink structure combinations you could use, the one key element is that your permalink should not immediately follow with your keyword. By using the post date in your URL slug, it not only serves as useful to Google, but also to your visitors.
