  171. <p>Why is realtor.com not higher than zumper.com in mobile search on the left?&nbsp; It is higher on desktop.&nbsp; Consider these metrics:</p>
  172. <p>Realtor.com = <strong><a href="https://ultimateseo.org/da-ds-dr-dt-cf-t/">Domain Authority</a>: 89 Domain Score: 55 Trust Score 58 Alexa Rank 763 Registered 1996 Ads 3,900&nbsp;Backlinks&nbsp;57,000,000 Traffic Rank 108</strong></p>

  174. <h3><strong>In every metric realtor.com wins, so why is it below Zumper.com on the mobile search?</strong></h3>
  175. <p>The site with a Domain Authority of 89 loses to the Domain Authority 63 site in mobile because that&#8217;s how important speed is on mobile searches.</p>

  181. <p>We prefer <a href="https://gtmetrix.com">gtmetrix.com</a> for page speed tests.&nbsp; You can also utilize <a href="https://thinkwithgoogle.com">thinkwithgoogle.com</a> or pingdom.com.&nbsp;</p><p>So in this example we clearly see a more popular site, with much higher DA, Alexa Rank, Backlinks and everything else you can think of beaten by a less established site and <strong><em>the single only factor the smaller site did better was speed</em></strong>.&nbsp; We cant discount this as … well it&#8217;s only important in mobile.&nbsp; In case you missed it…</p>

  183. <p>Mobile searches now makeup over 60% of searches. I have one client who has 83% mobile searches&#8230;so its best to test your site SEO with mobile first.</p>
  184. <p style="text-align: center;"><a href="https://ultimateseo.org/services/">Let Ultimate SEO Optimize Your Site Today!</a></p>
  185. <p></p>
  186. </div>
  187. <p>Now when we consider the facts above let&#8217;s also dispel people’s over fascination for keywords and text optimization and position of frequency of words, the content length …. on-site SEO, the SEO of the 1990s as I call it… both sites present the same content to the desktop and mobile versions they just differ wildly in the speed.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
  188. <p>What are some of the reasons?&nbsp; Realtor.com decided to present 16 rows of 3 images of homes to visitors while Zumper shows 4 rows of 1 image …. and then additional rows load as you scroll down.&nbsp; Lazy Load and 1 image vs 3.&nbsp; That&#8217;s how they keep their requests to about a third of the realtor.com page.</p>
  189. <h2>What Are Requests?</h2>
  190. <p>I’d suggest you think of requests as if they are shots from a gun at your head.&nbsp; You need to avoid them!&nbsp; Less shots is a lot better…</p>
  191. <p>Requests are literally requests of the server before the page can load.&nbsp; If I make a page with one image on it that is one request.&nbsp; Lets say I decide to replace that image with a slider with 5 slides, now I have 5 requests … the same page area but that cool feature increases the trips required of a computer to quadruple!&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
  192. <p>Lets say now I add social media icons to the page … Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and an email icon …. small and just up in the right corner.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
  193. <p>That social media addition just added 5 more requests.&nbsp; Think about all the things on your page, they don’t all come together in one big Amazon package with a smile…. they are shipped to the computer individually.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
  194. <p>Now I have one page with 1 request and another with 10 and the initial difference isn’t much…that slider only displays one image at a time.</p>
  195. <h3>Latency And Requests</h3>
  196. <p>Servers don’t respond instantly…they take a little while to think and retrieve the requested resource and then it has to travel the distance from the server to your computer…may be at the speed of light, but light still takes time.&nbsp;</p>
  197. <p>This time is called latency.&nbsp; 50 milliseconds is a good latency.</p>
  198. <p>If both servers in question had a 50 ms latency.&nbsp; We can assume that the</p>
  199. <p><strong>Realtor.com server will take 50 ms x 301 requests = 15050 ms or 15 seconds</strong></p>
  200. <p><strong>Zumper.com server will take 50 ms x 134 requests = 6700 ms or 6 seconds&nbsp;&nbsp;</strong></p>
  201. <p>Now those latency numbers are just examples but I hope this explains why you want to limit requests, and prioritize speed as much as you focus on keywords and DA.</p>
  202. <h2>Ways To Decrease Requests</h2>
  203. <p>Do you need separate images?&nbsp; On ultimateseo.org I wanted to show my COMPTia certifications.&nbsp; I have 4 icons … I combined them to make one image.&nbsp; &nbsp;Thats 1/4 the requests but no change in user experience other than a quicker site.</p>
  204. <p><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-7008" src="https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/speed-page-load-technical-seo-out-ranks-most-in-mobile.jpg" sizes="(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px" srcset="https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/CompTIAmatt.jpg?w=600 600w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/CompTIAmatt.jpg?resize=300%2C75 300w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/CompTIAmatt.jpg?resize=150%2C38 150w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/CompTIAmatt.jpg?resize=500%2C125 500w" alt="technical certifications" width="600" height="150" data-attachment-id="7008" data-permalink="https://ultimateseo.org/home-1/comptiamatt/" data-orig-file="https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/CompTIAmatt.jpg?fit=600%2C150" data-orig-size="600,150" data-comments-opened="1" data-image-meta="{&quot;aperture&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;credit&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;camera&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;caption&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;created_timestamp&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;copyright&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;focal_length&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;iso&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;shutter_speed&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;title&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;orientation&quot;:&quot;0&quot;}" data-image-title="CompTIAmatt" data-image-description="" data-medium-file="https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/CompTIAmatt.jpg?fit=300%2C75" data-large-file="https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/CompTIAmatt.jpg?fit=600%2C150" data-recalc-dims="1"></p>
  205. <h3>Lazy Load</h3>
  206. <p>Lazy Load also helps speed up the initial <a href="https://ultimateseo.org/optimizing-site-speed-page-load-seo-cloud-server-nfrastructure/">page load</a> time.&nbsp; If “below the fold” you have a lot of images on a page … the page needs those images still to finish the load unless you institute lazy load which essentially tells the computer to load an image only when it is coming into view.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
  207. <p>This makes sense likely if you have 300 images on the page and plenty of them are scrolled far down.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
  208. <p>I ran speed tests on the homepage of this site with Lazy Load on …. 3 tests results 2.3 seconds, 1.9 seconds and 1.9 seconds.&nbsp; I turned off lazy load, and reran the test and got 2.3 seconds, 1.9 seconds and 1.7 seconds.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
  209. <p>So technically the site loaded faster with Lazy Load off….keep in mind it takes a bit of thinking for the server to implement it.</p>
  210. <p>This helps speed up a site drastically if there are a ton of images spread vertically…but not much in a normal page.&nbsp; What are the full implications on SEO when a site is crawled?</p>
  211. <p>Its suggested by “Ask Yoast” that Lazy Load is fine for SEO and the images are rendered as Google scrolls down the page and indexes the content.</p>
  212. <p>A CDN is also a great tool for <a href="https://ultimateseo.org/optimizing-site-speed-page-load-seo-cloud-server-nfrastructure/">site speed</a>.&nbsp; I recommend Cloudflare&#8217;s free option.</p>
  213. <h2>Page Speed Has A Big Role</h2>
  214. <p>Page speed though is shown here as helping one smaller site beat out every other metric to rank higher than a competitor in mobile searches.</p>

  620. <h2>Live Chat &#8211; Conversion Generator Or Annoying And Pushy?</h2>
  621. <p>Sites of all kinds are adding them and in various degrees of ways.  Ultimate SEO added its live chat component but I&#8217;d call it a passive chat option.  Visitors had it available to them but the live chat didn&#8217;t use any means to start a conversation.  I actually find the &#8220;active chat&#8221; intrusive and fake.</p>
  622. <p>No, Brian, who&#8217;s picture is next to some text, &#8220;Hi there, can I <a href="https://ultimateseo.org/quick-help-guide/">help</a> you?&#8221; I&#8217;ve just landing on your site, give me a minute.  It&#8217;s like a shopping experience at The Buckle.  (For those of us who remember shopping for clothes at a mall). The Buckle was aggressive, they hounded you and tossed clothes at you on the way to the fitting room, regardless of how ridiculous you looked they always told you, to buy that!</p>
  623. <p>Live chat can be that way too.  It can be a tool available to the visitor or a tool available to the web site owner and there is a difference.   Heres an example:</p>
  624. <p><img class="alignleft wp-image-32394 " src="https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2020-02-05-at-7.44.25-AM-300x277.png" alt="Intercom Live Chat" width="203" height="187" srcset="https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2020-02-05-at-7.44.25-AM-300x277.png 300w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2020-02-05-at-7.44.25-AM-150x139.png 150w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2020-02-05-at-7.44.25-AM-500x462.png 500w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2020-02-05-at-7.44.25-AM.png 682w" sizes="(max-width: 203px) 100vw, 203px" /><a href="https://ahrefs.com" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Ahrefs.com</a> &#8211; Semi-passive, it is there and an option to you but after about a minute theres a red notification 1 and dialogue from &#8220;Helen&#8221; it takes up a sizable part of the screen and lacks an obvious way to close it.  They aren&#8217;t using Drift but a competitor Intercom Live Chat.  Same difference though to the live chat discussion.</p>
  625. <p>I hate being asked stuff like that with these dialogue boxes.  I sincerely doubt that &#8220;Helen&#8221; is really trying to actively help me at that moment.  She&#8217;s a set of rules and timers that will pass me off to a sales person if I interact with her.  In many ways it is like dealing with the Phantom of the Opera.  &#8221; Keep your hands at the level of your eyes!&#8221; if you make eye contact, it&#8217;s over.</p>
  626. <p>&nbsp;</p>
  627. <h2>Adding Live Chat To Your Website With Drift</h2>
  628. <p>This is just a quick note of Drift and SEO.  <a href="https://drift.com" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Drift</a> is a chat plugin, or embed code and a Cloudflare App which allows a site owner or staff to interact proactively with web visitors.  It&#8217;s great for lead generation and I have a client that swears by it which is what lead me to test it out.</p>
  629. <p>I used it for a month or so on this site with minimal appeal.  Alot of the useful stuff seemed to require a paid account.  I couldn&#8217;t for instance see how many visitor didn&#8217;t use the tool vs the one person who did.  Sure I have analytics that tell me page hits and unique visitors, but that doesn&#8217;t tell me how many of those had the Drift pop up box work on their visit.  It could have been blocked by some, but I wont know.  Assuming everyone got Drift delivered to them only one person ever messaged using it.  Annoyingly thats a very high price in terms of code sent to visitors that didn&#8217;t use it and that added processing time does affect a sites ranking.</p>
  630. <h2>How Much Did Drift Affect Page Load</h2>
  631. <p>Immensely.  Like a stupidly insane cost to <a href="https://ultimateseo.org/optimizing-site-speed-page-load-seo-cloud-server-nfrastructure/">page load</a> was easily seen.  Its so bad I&#8217;ll tell ya out right I highly discourage Drift on any site attempting to rank on Google.  Here is the GTMetrix report for my site with Drift.</p>
  632. <p><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-32318" src="https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2020-02-01-at-8.39.00-AM.png" alt="Page Speed With Drift" width="1000" height="400" srcset="https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2020-02-01-at-8.39.00-AM.png 1000w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2020-02-01-at-8.39.00-AM-300x120.png 300w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2020-02-01-at-8.39.00-AM-850x340.png 850w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2020-02-01-at-8.39.00-AM-768x307.png 768w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2020-02-01-at-8.39.00-AM-150x60.png 150w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2020-02-01-at-8.39.00-AM-500x200.png 500w" sizes="(max-width: 1000px) 100vw, 1000px" /></p>
  633. <p>At 14 seconds the site is doing basically the worst I&#8217;ve ever seen.  Considering the page size and requests its not that big nor does it require a ton of requests.  I consider under 100 a safe place.  But that means nothing next to 13.5 seconds.</p>
  634. <p>Now when I removed Drift and reran the test.  I got the results below&#8230;</p>
  635. <p><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-32317" src="https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2020-02-01-at-8.41.04-AM.png" alt="Page Speed Without Drift" width="1000" height="410" srcset="https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2020-02-01-at-8.41.04-AM.png 1000w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2020-02-01-at-8.41.04-AM-300x123.png 300w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2020-02-01-at-8.41.04-AM-850x349.png 850w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2020-02-01-at-8.41.04-AM-768x315.png 768w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2020-02-01-at-8.41.04-AM-150x62.png 150w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2020-02-01-at-8.41.04-AM-500x205.png 500w" sizes="(max-width: 1000px) 100vw, 1000px" />That&#8217;s what I mean by insanely stupid.  Simply removing Drift decreased the page requests by almost half!  The load time for the page drops to almost a third of what it was with Drift.  4.6 seconds vs 13.5 seconds is astonishing.  8.9 seconds &#8230; just call it 9 at that point.  The goal of course is under 3 seconds and Drift alone is 3 times the amount.  When we consider that 1000 visitors came to the site in the last month that would mean Drift added 9000 seconds to users wait time to load the homepage.  Imagine that Drift is on every page what that delay was PER PAGE!  The homepage alone would have taken 2.5 hours longer in visitors combined wait times.</p>
  636. <p>It can&#8217;t be that bad&#8230;.YES IT REALLY IS.  That&#8217;s horrific in SEO terms.  You had best get a huge amount of conversion and consider a PPC campaign because honestly your SEO rankings are set to tank in mobile searches.  Which begs the question, how important is it to conversions if no one comes to the site since its listed on page 3 because of Drift.</p>
  637. <p>This was with using the Cloudflare App version, which should be the fastest way to do it.  It moves Drift closer to the visitors on the Cloudflare edge servers.</p>
  638. <h2>How Do We Fix Drift?</h2>
  639. <p>Drift has to address its sloppy coding experience.  Why they require 40 something requests is beyond rational thought.  The payload of your site&#8217;s pages isn&#8217;t going to clear the tower, Drift should rebrand itself Challenger.</p>
  640. <figure id="attachment_32319" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-32319" style="width: 1000px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img class="size-full wp-image-32319" src="https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/drift.jpg" alt="Drift" width="1000" height="563" srcset="https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/drift.jpg 1000w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/drift-300x169.jpg 300w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/drift-850x478.jpg 850w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/drift-768x432.jpg 768w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/drift-150x84.jpg 150w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/drift-500x281.jpg 500w" sizes="(max-width: 1000px) 100vw, 1000px" /><figcaption id="caption-attachment-32319" class="wp-caption-text">** ADVANCE FOR USE FRIDAY, JAN. 28, 2011 AND THEREAFTER ** FILE &#8211; In this Jan. 28, 1986 file photo, the space shuttle Challenger explodes shortly after lifting off from the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Fla. (AP Photo/Bruce Weaver, File)</figcaption></figure>
  641. <p>I&#8217;m not trying to be over the top, but when one thing that&#8217;s supposed to help you, takes 3 times the total time you have to deliver your message &#8230; it&#8217;s not good.  I&#8217;d argue you&#8217;re better off with a page that loads in 4.6 seconds without it.</p>
  642. <p>According to Google research each second over 5 seconds 10% of your audience abandons your site.  That&#8217;s nearly half the visitors lost if you can get the page to load in 10 seconds.</p>
  643. <h2>Drift Alternatives</h2>
  644. <p>Drift isn&#8217;t the only option either.  I haven&#8217;t tested these but they can&#8217;t be any worse&#8230;</p>
  645. <p>LiveChat.com, twak.com, crisp.com, and there&#8217;s a ton more.</p>
  646. <p>So summary&#8230;using Drift is like killing half your web traffic to ask 1 in 1000 how you can help.</p>

  669. <p>Someone asked me if calling out a &#8220;hacker&#8221; makes you a snitch?  I smiled and told them, being a snitch is decent.  People who don&#8217;t like snitches are doing things they are ashamed of and know it.  In IT we need to be snitches a lot more and loudly.</p>
  670. <p>Its pretty fun being your own web host, maintaining your own cloud resources and setting up the security protocols and so forth.  We&#8217;ve hosted about 300 sites at various points and presently maintain 120.  All of which are internal projects and resources.  This volume creates a lab for SEO experiments and &#8230; incidentally security lessons.</p>
  671. <p>I&#8217;d say the single biggest threat to a web site I&#8217;ve learned is inactivity.  Simply leaving it to its own devices leads to returning and finding someone else has been there..these exercises are great opportunities to learn from.  I started creating pages titled with the IP address of bad actors &#8230; because its important to share information.</p>

  870. <div></div>
  871. <div>You see they have been listed for a while on IP Blacklists.  Normally this is a nonissue as I block traffic to many trouble countries.  But this test site was a test.  Things were different and thats alright because we learn from it.  Primarily that Bashilov Alekseevich isn&#8217;t worth allowing access to your or anyone&#8217;s network.  He&#8217;s a pussy and he serves as the front of people wasting my time.</div>
  872. <div></div>
  873. <div>
  874. <div>
  875. <h2>5.188.210.0/24 CIDR</h2>
  876. <p>So the next obvious thing is not to block the ips but the whole block of it since we see several ips in the same range.  CIDR 5.188.210.0/24 basically means 5.188.210.0 thru 5.188.210.255. Now we can block it in the site but thats the least we can do.  Networking of course comes down to 7 layers as you may recall and we can take this block to a higher layer&#8230;the server level would block communication on the whole server but I still feel thats too close to the target.  <a href="https://ultimateseo.org/digital-ocean-vs-google-cloud-vs-aws/">Digital Ocean</a>&#8217;s firewall would be my preferred place to block communication.  But to my knowledge you are unable to specifically block communication on a certain port to a specific ip.  You can block every one and list everyone allowed, but the reverse isnt available.  Correct me if Im wrong in the comments.</p>
  877. <p>So server level it is &#8230; now &#8230; for added distance we could put a server with the firewall on it between the world and the webserver but at this point that may be overboard.  There&#8217;s already a Cloudflare layer of security on most sites, incidentally this site was not using Cloudflare, normally they do but I just wanted to shake things up.  Then a firewall in the cloud, then a firewall and ModSecurity on the server. The on the site a firewall and security scanning.  To add another server with a firewall to just block one pussy on a test site isn&#8217;t worth the time.</p>
  878. </div>
  879. </div>
  880. <p>I&#8217;ll continue to review the data and assess the test site&#8217;s likely compromised files.  Incidentally the site didn&#8217;t have our recommended security plugins in place but different security plugins.  WP-Cerber remains our recommended plugin and has been added now to replace the apparently defeated plugin that I wont name.</p>
  881. <p>If your a webmaster, I encourage you to share the IPs of problem connections.  I never call these folks hackers, cause thats not what they are &#8230; they&#8217;re opportunist.   &#8220;They exploit an opportunity, such as an inactive site, or one that doesn&#8217;t use updated software.</p>
  882. <p>Updating your site is the second biggest thing after activity that plays a role in security wins vs defeats.</p>

  906. <h2>Longevity isn&#8217;t long for freelancers who work fast and know what they are doing.</h2>
  907. <p>Conversely if clients are likely to remove you once they are doing well, what value does pay for performance bring?</p>
  908. <p>This is the first entry of a series on being a freelancer.</p>
  909. <p>It seems like, and I agree it makes little sense, but when your work, over several months has lead to the best possible outcome for the client and you&#8217;ve begun meeting and exceeding their goals, be ready for it to end.  Now in SEO the projects are never ending, there are always more things that can be done.  But as your work bears fruit you may want to look out and start interviewing new clients.</p>
  910. <p>Examples I&#8217;ve experienced: In 2019 after working together for several months in increasingly important roles a client who was contracting 100% of my time. <strong>(Note&#8230;rule #1 never give 100% of your time. You can be gone in an instant and you&#8217;ll have no income till you replace this client, and you&#8217;re unlikely to find another one asking for all your time, leaving you in a state of crisis seeking multiple clients.). </strong></p>
  911. <p>The client had evolving monthly goals that often spanned off-project.  This sea of half finished gigs had to be completed or the projects would fail and while he had said to &#8220;pause&#8221; this project &#8230; I&#8217;d have to keep it going anyhow.  Keep in mind if an unfinished project imploded I worried I&#8217;d be the one holding the grenade. This fever of activity was good though, but just as my work delivered a 1200% increase in search traffic to his site.</p>
  912. <p>I received a call one afternoon as I drove down the expressway after visiting the doctors office. My client, called literaly yelling at me saying he didn&#8217;t know why he needed me and I was out like that.  I think it had somewhat to do with me not being at my desk maybe or the fact I had missed an email to my personal account from his dad either way, the situation was obviously a problem.  Especially since at that time he had been paying me to hire a couple assistants to work arttime with me.</p>
  913. <p>My contract was suspended, blocking me from billing any hours before I got <a href="https://ultimateseo.org/homepage/">home</a>.  I even had some time I had worked that wasn&#8217;t billed yet but that was blocked.  The same client had just given me a bonus and a new project just a month before, but now the value I brought was questioned.  That project was to turn around their brand&#8217;s domain traffic on Google.</p>
  914. <p><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-32184" src="https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2020-01-28-at-9.41.17-AM.png" alt="" width="1000" height="319" srcset="https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2020-01-28-at-9.41.17-AM.png 1000w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2020-01-28-at-9.41.17-AM-300x96.png 300w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2020-01-28-at-9.41.17-AM-850x271.png 850w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2020-01-28-at-9.41.17-AM-768x245.png 768w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2020-01-28-at-9.41.17-AM-1536x490.png 1536w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2020-01-28-at-9.41.17-AM-150x48.png 150w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2020-01-28-at-9.41.17-AM-500x159.png 500w" sizes="(max-width: 1000px) 100vw, 1000px" /></p>
  915. <p>I was put on the project in late Apr and let go in late May.  At that time 1 month traffic was up 1200% and it had never been better, and it hasn&#8217;t been as good since.</p>
  916. <p><strong>The best I can tell you is that when your clients reaches all a big boom in sales and traffic you wont be earning a pat on the back, unless its a pat to the door.  Now you still need to make these awesome wins, just don&#8217;t mistake the scene as time to celebrate with them.</strong>  <strong>You aren&#8217;t them and they may even claim it was their own efforts.</strong></p>
  917. <p>I think its important and this is especially true in SEO, since you don&#8217;t produce a physical object that they can see and touch its especially important to produce reports and explain your value.  Now that hasn&#8217;t actually mattered, in this next example the reports were often discounted as just wrong.</p>
  918. <figure id="attachment_32191" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-32191" style="width: 556px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img class="wp-image-32191" src="https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/404B.jpg" alt="" width="556" height="369" srcset="https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/404B.jpg 1000w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/404B-300x199.jpg 300w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/404B-850x565.jpg 850w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/404B-768x510.jpg 768w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/404B-1536x1020.jpg 1536w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/404B-150x100.jpg 150w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/404B-500x332.jpg 500w" sizes="(max-width: 556px) 100vw, 556px" /><figcaption id="caption-attachment-32191" class="wp-caption-text">Client Experts don&#8217;t know that they don&#8217;t Know they are not experts. They&#8217;ll likely fight your moves to change what they put in place, despite they saw the need to hire you.</figcaption></figure>
  919. <h2>Client Experts</h2>
  920. <p>See be weary of the client whos &#8220;an expert&#8221; in your field.  They are dangerous&#8230;they lack the knowledge that they aren&#8217;t an expert.  If they were so great why wouldn&#8217;t they just be an SEO Consultant?  Why hire you?  How could results be better after you joined the team?</p>
  921. <p>Client SEO Experts are generally the enemy of their own goals and sites.  With unfounded confidence they can work to undo what you&#8217;ve orchestrated in a matter of minutes.  They constantly second guess you, and you may find yourself screaming.</p>
  922. <p>I know I was when I shared that the site had record traffic, to be met with the sky was falling and monthly graphs emailed out proclaiming all you&#8217;d done wasn&#8217;t effective.  In that case I had to point out that the month graphs included the current month we were a week into&#8230;.and for that reason, yes, there was a drop in traffic due to the lack of the month being complete.</p>
  923. <p>Another Example:</p>
  924. <h2>Taken For Granted When Things Go Well</h2>
  925. <p>I started with a site that migrated to a new site in August.  I had 301 redirected their backlinks and ensured proper <a href="https://ultimateseo.org/optimizing-site-speed-page-load-seo-cloud-server-nfrastructure/">page load</a> times but early on I had to question the new sites user experience.  What they sold wasn&#8217;t even on the homepage.  The were so obsessed with showing the location of all their stores they neglected to realize the average web visitor doesn&#8217;t care how many stores you have, or where all those stores are they care where the closest store to them is and thats it.  Showing them 8 or so other irrelevant locations intermixed with the 1 you want is a disservice.</p>
  926. <p>And I don&#8217;t mean it was listed with other stores I mean a sea of images, phone icons with numbers and Google maps for each store.  It was too much and the user data showed it.  But over the course of the next 3 or 4 months I convinced them to allow me to make a blog for their site.</p>
  927. <p>They said they already had one and it was at xyz.com. I noted that their main site was abc.com so xyz.com wasn&#8217;t doing them any favors with keywords or establishing content to draw in visitors.  After only two months their keywords had more than doubled and their traffic was the highest it had ever been in November, then even higher again in December.</p>
  928. <p>By mid January I had all my access cut to and was tiold we did work on a project basis and the project was over. Luckily this time I had kept the client at about 1/4 of my business.  Sadly though when mentioning the performance they said it might have been their own efforts.  Deja Vu!  Traffic was never better, keywords were expanding like wild fire and I&#8217;d seen the site past a poorly executed multi-domain strategy and PPC strategy which both cannebalized organic SEO and now it wasn&#8217;t even my victory.</p>
  929. <p>Moral of the story, you are NOT an employee.  They are NOT your friend and you&#8217;re gone when the problem is deemed fixed so at your high moments, start shopping for a replacement.</p>
  930. <p>Review:</p>
  931. <ul>
  932. <li>Never let one client dominate your schedule, once they leave they leave you empty.</li>
  933. <li>Watch out for client experts in your field.  They&#8217;ll be the downfall of everything.</li>
  934. <li>When things look great, start interviewing clients.</li>
  935. </ul>

  1014. <div class="elementor-text-editor elementor-clearfix"><h2>SEO WordPress Optimization</h2>
  1015. <p>Initial success was quick to be realized in optimization of the sites images, the addition of a CDN network, html compression and image compression. After this first phase the site was loading at about 5 seconds on average.</p>
  1016. <p>This meant the site was loading in less than half as long as before but still almost twice as long as our three second goal. In reviewing what we had to do we identified three areas that we felt encompases a site&#8217;s speed.</p>
  1017. <p><strong>I. Content &#8211; animations, js, css, images, video files</strong></p>
  1018. <p>These are the basics that every site should have in place by default. Rarely does a new client have all of these in place.</p>
  1019. <p><strong>II. Site Optimization &#8211; compression, software versions, CDN&nbsp;</strong></p>
  1020. <p>Adding Content Delivery Network or CDN as an optimization.&nbsp; While a CDN is infrastructure its not required for a site to function but servers to improve the delivery of content, so for our purposes it is an optimization.</p>
  1021. <p><strong>III. Server and Networking Infrastructure &#8211; host hardware,&nbsp;</strong></p>
  1022. <p><strong><img class="aligncenter" src="https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2020-01-25-at-3.41.18-PM.png" alt="SEO Optimization Areas " width="417" height="371"></strong></p>

  1024. <p><span style="color: #000000; font-size: 40px; font-weight: bold;">Content For SEO Speed</span></p>
  1025. <p>Speed is important to SEO ranking. It&#8217;s incredibly important with mobile users which now out number desktop users on Google&#8217;s search engine. Google has an initiative called Mobile First and its title makes it obvious what they want to see from sites.</p>
  1026. <p>In previous tests we&#8217;ve seen a visible bump caused by a site&#8217;s speed performance. This was observed with at least 3 sites that were first on shared hosting, then given a dedicated VPS server.</p>
  1027. <p>Leaving behind the animations and scrollers is an easy thing for an SEO to advocate but it&#8217;s sometimes those elements that drive the site&#8217;s conversion rates. Content that&#8217;s rich in only text may be great for Google but it isn&#8217;t the best way to present yourself to future clients. Our goal was to minimize animation but leave content largely intact.</p>
  1028. <p>We also worked to resolve site errors and broken links within the content.</p></div>

  1032. <div class="elementor-widget-container">
  1033. <div class="elementor-text-editor elementor-clearfix"><h2>The Technical SEO Side</h2><div><p>In the image above we have content and two other sections equally important.  Site Optimization and Server / Networking Infrastructure.  These second two can collectively be called Off Page SEO or Technical SEO.  It&#8217;s the side of SEO that Ultimate SEO excels within, and most SEOs just  don&#8217;t know it</p><p>.</p></div><p>Reviewing the site we noted that the use of PHP 5.6 could be improved with PHP 7.3.  Some studies indicated a 200% improvement in site speed with this update.  PHP 7.3 has actually given way now to 7.4, but we&#8217;re still learning the specifics of 7.4 and felt 7.3 was the best accepted solution.</p><p><span style="font-weight: 400;">As noted previously the use of a CDN was chosen with Cloudflare. This brought an immediate savings of about 3 seconds in tests</span></p><p>But with all these efforts in the 5 second mark fell short. We were receiving an optimization rating of 94% from GTMetrix which suggested the site couldn&#8217;t really be speed up through optimization any more.</p><p>That left us with Content or Infrastructure as the last means. Again Content was to be the last resort which drove us to test out the site running on a dedicated <a href="https://ultimateseo.org/digital-ocean-vs-google-cloud-vs-aws/">Digital Ocean</a> VPS server. You can read more about the performance testing we did while comparing <a href="https://ultimateseo.org/digital-ocean-vs-google-cloud-vs-aws/">Digital Ocean vs AWS.</a></p><p>Long story short Digital Ocean performed by far the best in every test we did and we were coming in at 2.7 seconds. This meant we left GoDaddy&#8217;s shared hosting and took up a VPS cloud server and we offloaded the MYSQL database to its own VPS server.</p></div>

  1037. <div class="elementor-widget-container">
  1038. <div class="elementor-text-editor elementor-clearfix"><h3>What Are Requests?</h3><p>I&#8217;d suggest you think of requests as if they are shots from a gun at your head.  You need to avoid them!  Less shots is a lot better.</p><p>Requests are literally requests of the server before the page can load.  If I make a page with one image on it that is one request. </p><p>Let&#8217;s say I decide to replace that image with a slider with 5 slides, now I have 5 requests, the same page area but that cool feature increases the trips required of a computer to quadruple! </p><p>Let&#8217;s say now I add social media icons to the page, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and an email icon. small and just up in the right corner. </p><p>That social media addition just added 5 more requests.  Think about all the things on your page, they don&#8217;t all come together in one big Amazon package with a smile.</p><p>They are shipped to the computer individually.  Now I have one page with 1 request and another with 10 and the initial difference isn&#8217;t much, that slider only displays one image at a time.</p><p> </p><p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Page Requests though are directly correlate with a slower performing site. </span></p><p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Requests making the site slow also makes sense. If it takes the server 10 milliseconds to respond to a request then 200 requests become 2000 milliseconds. This server latency was going to exist at some level and the number of requests simply amplified it.</span></p><h3>Latency And Requests</h3><p>Servers don&#8217;t respond instantly‚ they take a little while to think and retrieve the requested resource and then it has to travel the distance from the server to your computer‚ may be at the speed of light, but light still takes time.  This time is called latency.  50 milliseconds is a good latency.</p><p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The use of GZip Compression, image compression and minification was a no brainer for speeding up the site. Page Requests though seem to directly correlate with a slower performing site. Our site had over 200 requests for each page. We worked to merge js and css files and brought that request number to around 70.</span></p></div>

  1105. <p>Just today I received a long email complimenting me on the site (which one I dont know) but they always conclude with a suggested mention of site xyz.com and its article on the matter.  And I appreciate those and do feel that the value of this site increases with the more diverse information.  But its diverse information that adds value, me going into an existing article to add a competing link is not really provided a diverse view of the subject just an additional exit page from this site.</p>
  1106. <p>Theres actually a lot of these messages that filter in throughout the week. If I spend the time to add the links where they want it would probably consume half a day read messages, finding article, review their link, add it to mine and now to the next.  Its also questionable how long that material is going to be up before the ir site changes or goes and the link becomes just a redirect and I have no idea what the target is too.</p>
  1107. <h2>Guest Post Content Submissions</h2>
  1108. <p>So a way to <a href="https://ultimateseo.org/quick-help-guide/">help</a> increase my site&#8217;s content and diversity of opinions I have <a href="https://seoarticle.org">SEOArticle.org</a> which serves as a place for you to <a href="https://ultimateseo.org/link-building-guest-posts-to-ultimateseo-org/">Guest Post</a>.  The site is also <a href="https://content.ultimateseo.org">content.ultimateseo.org</a>.  If you want to do a guest post on any <a href="https://ultimateseo.org">Ultimate SEO</a> site then this is the way to do it.  With your own content that may include a link or two you can submit it through the content site.  I can then review the content in one place and approve it or not.</p>
  1109. <p>When approved it will feed to the Ultimate SEO Network, a content syndication network.</p>

  1194. <h1>Keywords For Google Ranking</h1>
  1195. <p>SEO efforts always start out with the simplest goal. &nbsp;Every web site wants to rank for their name.&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="https://ultimateseo.org/" target="_blank">UltimateSEO.org</a>&nbsp;for instance, most people would say how does it rank for Ultimate SEO? &nbsp;But thats honestly not of any value, think about it &#8230; the only people searching Ultimate SEO are those who already know about you. &nbsp;More likely you&#8217;re the only one searching your brand name unless your a huge company.</p>
  1196. <h2>Finding Your Keywords</h2>
  1197. <p>Your name is what I call a vanity keyword.&nbsp; Others will call it a &#8220;<a href="https://ultimateseo.org/ranking-keywords-that-people-search/">Branded Keyword</a>.&#8221;&nbsp; It would be great to rank for it but its only for your peace of mind. &nbsp;In a recent election I had to explain to the candidate that ranking for his name would be nice but wouldnt he rather rank for every other candidates name on the ballot?</p>
  1198. <p>Heres a bit of an exchange I had with a prospective client&#8217;s question on a keyword.</p>

  1211. <h3>Your Brand Is The Answer, SEO Is About Finding The Question.&nbsp; That question is your keyword.</h3>
  1212. <p>Example.</p>
  1213. <p>My city councilman Mr. NewGuy isn&#8217;t running for reelection after his first term.&nbsp; A Mr. I&#8217;dDoIt is going to run and there are others.&nbsp; Whats the best keyword in this paragraph for the new candidate?&nbsp; Its &#8230;. likely Mr. NewGuy.&nbsp; The name of the old council person who isn&#8217;t running is likely to be searched this election a lot more than Mr. I&#8217;dDoIt.&nbsp; The new guy is unknown &#8230;. he is the answer the question is &#8220;Is Mr NewGuy running for council&#8221; or &#8220;who is replacing Mr NewGuy?&#8221; &#8220;Why is Mr NewGuy not running&#8221;</p>
  1214. <p>The person who capitalizes on the question gets to define the answer and that is their brand but it is not their keyword.</p>
  1215. <p>Another example &#8230; I have a client who keeps saying &#8230;. this is my keyword &#8220;Best Hairstylist in Lexington near me&#8221; He puts Lexington on everything&#8230;so much so that his site is literally 5% Lexington.&nbsp; He calls it local SEO.&nbsp; Its not though.&nbsp; If I look through my Google history I never type the city I am in cause like everyone else I think I&#8217;m the center of the universe and &#8220;Best Martini Near Me&#8221; is what I search.&nbsp; By forcing Lexington into everything he&#8217;s kinda requiring people to be self aware that others are not in Lexington.</p>
  1216. <p>And <strong>Local SEO</strong> is important but it IS NOT how many times you repeat the name of your city.&nbsp; Local SEO is how many other local sites repeat that you&#8217;re site is the &#8220;The Best Martini&#8221; Google understands that the other businesses are in Lexington, and that IS local SEO.&nbsp; Making the site 5% Lexington more so positions you for searches like &#8220;Who founded Lexington&#8221; than &#8220;Best Martini Bar&#8221;.</p>
  1217. <h2>What do people search?&nbsp; Thats your keyword.</h2>
  1218. <p>I can tell you that in Ultimate SEO&#8217;s searched phrases on Search Console the word Louisville isn&#8217;t on the radar&#8230;its understood though that if the person is in Louisville and searching &#8220;SEO Agency Near Me&#8221; that Ultimate SEO should come up over an agency in Budapest.</p></div>

  1323. From the early days of the internet you&#8217;ve received cookies.  Cookies are a small text file that identifies you to a site once you visit it.  Now how does it identify you?  Not specifically in and of themselves, think of them as tokens.  Or prize tickets &#8230; the token or ticket doesn&#8217;t have to have information directly about you it could be just a number.
  1324.  
  1325. Say you visit my site I give you a cookie and it has a number I assigned to you.  Your 777.  You come back a day later and your computer shows your cookie and I know that 777 was here yesterday so you&#8217;ve returned.  I may show content specifically for a returning visitor.  I may already know what content you saw on my site from last time.
  1326.  
  1327. Seems harmless enough but that was the dawn of the internet today sites aggregate data, for instance Google Analytics runs on a lot of sites.  Maybe too many &#8230;
  1328. <blockquote>According to BuilWith, <b>Google Analytics</b> is currently in <b>use</b> at around 57% of the 10,000 most popular websites. Overall 12,376,541 websites <b>using Google Analytics</b>: 372,404 websites within the top million most <b>sites</b> on the internet and an additional 12,004,137 websites on the rest of the Internet.</blockquote>
  1329. So in this scenario now Google assigns you the number 666 we&#8217;ll randomly say. Goole then can track your visits to about half the sites in the top 10,000.  Thats a lot of knowledge, page by page &#8230; site by site.  Why would sites allow this? Google shares insights back to these sites, mostly just about your use of their site for free.  But the knowledge Google gains is immense.  Your cookie might as well be your name now.</div>

  1335. <h2>Whats CCPA?</h2>
  1336. <p>Effective January 1 2020 all sites visited by a resident of California must adhere to the California Cookie Privacy Act (teasing its the California Consumer Privacy Act) which deals with cookies. &nbsp;</p>
  1337. <p>This act requires you to be given an opportunity to &#8220;opt out&#8221; of being tracked&#8230;it allows you to say &#8220;no cookies please&#8221;. &nbsp; Sounds great but it basically means that sites wont know who you are when you return or what you&#8217;ve seen and that kinda breaks the internet. &nbsp;But thats if you opt out &#8230;. if you click accept the game keeps going as normal.</p>
  1338. <p>There are additional parts of CCPA such as the ability to consent and later renounce that consent and to be able to ask to be forgotten.</p>
  1339. <p>That creates a lot of work for IT environments to do and how it affects the site&#8217;s SEO and ranking is debated.</p>
  1340. <h2>Whats GDPR?&nbsp;</h2>
  1341. <p>For simplicity its the same as CCPA but its a law made in Europe and it requires an &#8220;Opt In.&#8221; &nbsp;That difference in <strong>opt in vs opt out </strong>is huge actually.</p>
  1342. <p>The EU law also says that it is required of any site in any country that a European visits. &nbsp;So does that mean that the local First Baptist Church in Anytown USA has to meet the standards of GDPR. &nbsp;Thats the presumption and it is already in force. &nbsp;</p>

  1354. <h2>Penalties For NonCompliance To CCPA And GDPR?</h2>
  1355. <p>Yes. &nbsp;CCPA ranges from 100 to $750 per user per incident that private data is not compliant. &nbsp;So if 100,000 users arent asked about a cookie over 10 times the fine could be as much as $750,000,000.</p>
  1356. <p>Now that would really suck for First Baptist Church from our earlier example. &nbsp;Not many small town organizations have that kind of money. &nbsp;But wait &#8230; there are exemptions too.</p>
  1357. <h2>CCPA Exemptions?</h2>
  1358. <p>You have to do $25 million a year in revenue among other various clauses. &nbsp;So if you do $1000000 a year online you are exempt for now from CCPA. &nbsp;</p>
  1359. <h2>GDPR Exemptions?</h2>
  1360. <p>Well those are just as complicated as the GDPR law is itself.</p>
  1361. <p>There are limited GDPR exemptions related to the processing of personal data as detailed below:</p>
  1362. <ul>
  1363. <li>When data are processed during the course of an activity that falls outside of the law of the European Union</li>
  1364. <li>GDPR does not apply to individuals that process data for personal or household activity</li>
  1365. <li>GDPR does not apply to government agencies and law enforcement when data are collected and processed for the prevention, investigation, detection, or prosecution of criminal offenses or the execution of criminal penalties or for preventing threats to public safety</li>
  1366. <li>GDPR does not apply to the processing of personal data by Member States for activities under the scope of Chapter 2, Title V, of the Treaty on European Union.</li>
  1367. </ul>
  1368. <p>What does that second bullet even mean? &nbsp;What individual is tracking my personal data for household activity? &nbsp;</p>
  1369. <p>Well&#8230;there are a billion more points to note on this but if you&#8217;re reading this now its also after the deadline and you likely need to give up the DIY effort and hire a consultant to bring you up to speed.</p>
  1370. <h2>What WordPress Cookies Are CCPA GDPR Compliant?</h2>
  1371. <p>None. &nbsp;You see a plugin still needs to be configured and if you take the plugin from one site that is compliant and place it on your site, that doesn&#8217;t magically mean you&#8217;re compliant. &nbsp;Its all about how you use a tool to get the job done right.</p>
  1372. <h2>Who Can Help Me With CCPA And GDPR?</h2>
  1373. <p>Beware of consultants who start everything with &#8220;I&#8217;m not a lawyer but&#8221; because thats basically <em><strong>them saying you should contact a lawyer, I&#8217;m not one and anything I say after is of no real value.</strong></em></p>

  1948. <h2>theglobe.net</h2>
  1949. <p>What&#8217;s worse?  The crappy website they have with no content and just super spammy links or the fact that you nor I ever asked for that bad backlink?  The fact that the charge to delete a link to you at $35 a link shows how they crash your backlink party.  But hey, Google knows this right, they wouldn&#8217;t hurt your site still&#8230;wrong!</p>
  1950. <h2>Monetized Bad Backlink Site With Spam Links</h2>
  1951. <p>I wish we could collect money like a nonprofit from SEOs everywhere and raise the $10,000,000 asking price of theglobe.com and just turn it off.  Why is it I hate theglobe.com so much?  Cause their links are bad.</p>
  1952. <p>Previous to this post I&#8217;ve always said don&#8217;t use the Disavow Tool unless facing a manual penalty.  Its the Google answer &#8230; but I tried something, disavowed a few hundred domains all connected to theglobe.net and over the next 3 weeks I saw a marked improvement in keywords and their position.</p>
  1953. <p>A client had the same issue.  300 domains from Sweden many with theglobe.com in their domain name mostly all with it at least in the page title included in their link profile.</p>

  1958. <h2>Not A Link Building Scheme</h2>
  1959. <p>These aren&#8217;t backlinks someone purchased, at least not from the target company or their SEO for that matter.  They are nuisance links, you could use this site for negative SEO.  It regularly pops up in the link portfolio of domains as they are expiring which has always annoyed me because it portrays a Domain Pop higher than it actually is &#8230; the globe of course doesn&#8217;t count.</p>
  1960. <p>Theglobe.com actually last I checked charged for backlink removal!  That&#8217;s one way to run a profitable site&#8230;make it so bad it hurts SEO so webmasters will pay you to leave them alone.  Of course &#8230; then the terrorist wins.</p>
  1961. <p><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-31769" src="https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2019-12-14-at-7.20.30-AM.png" alt="Charging To Remove Link" width="774" height="604" srcset="https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2019-12-14-at-7.20.30-AM.png 774w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2019-12-14-at-7.20.30-AM-300x234.png 300w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2019-12-14-at-7.20.30-AM-768x599.png 768w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2019-12-14-at-7.20.30-AM-150x117.png 150w, https://ultimateseo.org/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2019-12-14-at-7.20.30-AM-500x390.png 500w" sizes="(max-width: 774px) 100vw, 774px" /></p>
  1962. <p>Noticed a few &#8220;theglobe.net&#8221; in your link portfolio?  <strong>If so its always an infestation and you should try disavowing.</strong></p>
  1963. <h2>Disavow Sample File / Template</h2>
  1964. <p>So you may try the <a href="https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/disavow-links-main?pli=1">Google Disavow Tool</a> if you haven&#8217;t yet.  Upload a txt file listing the domains you do not want counted.  We&#8217;re including a copy of one of our disavow lists, you can use it or add to it.</p>
  1965. <p>Who&#8217;s on our naughty list?  What should the txt file look like?  The long list is just below us.  Domains we&#8217;ve disavowed.</p>

  2569. <p>If the title confuses you don’t worry. Id expect even intermediate SEOs are not familiar with all of those letters. Domain Authority or <b>DA</b> is a well established SEO metric by Moz.com that many often confuse with Google&#8217;s ranking of keywords.  Lets just remind everyone interested in their DA &#8230;that it has NOTHING to do with Google&#8217;s search results.  It MAY be based on some of the same similar metrics as Google uses but its just a number someone other than Google guessed.</p>

  2571. <h2>What are the other SEO Metrics? Domain Authority Alternatives</h2>
  2572. <p><strong>DS – Domain Score by SEMRush</strong><br />
  2573. <strong>DR – Domain Rank</strong><br />
  2574. <strong>DP – Domain Pop</strong><br />
  2575. <strong>DT – Domain Trust by SEMRush</strong><br />
  2576. <strong>AS – Authority Score by SEMRush</strong><br />
  2577. <strong>TF – Trust Flow by Majestic</strong><br />
  2578. <strong>CF – Citation Flow by Majestic</strong><br />
  2579. <strong>Moz Spam – Is Another Moz Metric</strong></p>
  2580. <p>For a more in depth look at each ranking we’ve included the SEO Metrics category from our <a href="https://ultimateseo.org/seo-faqs-2/">FAQ</a> section.</p>
  2581. </div>
  2582. <p>Continuing into metric land theres seemingly easy scores that you’d be wrong to expect to be equal. Backlinks are reported by Moz, SEMRush, AHREFs and Majestic. Usually these numbers are widely different, but how could they be different?</p>
  2583. <p>Keep in mind that the sites that report these numbers are making crawls and may be different sizes. Ive found MOZ to usually be the lower count, this could mean they have the smaller sample of sites from the others or it could be they have better spam recognition than the others. Another theory could lead you to wonder if one site includes backlinks from redirects where others don’t include redirected backlinks.</p>
  2584. <p>It’s important to note that these numbers are just made up criteria that the specific indexing site cane up with and depending on their size and rules the reported number of backlinks almost always vary. Some only count backlinks to the specific domain and not subdomains others do count subdomains.</p>
  2585. <h2>Best SEO Metric</h2>
  2586. <p>So whats right? Well to know that you would need to work for a search engine like Google to understand the factors uses to determine a sites values.</p>
  2587. <p>In the end no one index has it right, and no one metric is accurate enough to serve as a good predictor to Google’s real metrics.</p>
  2588. <p>Domain Authority after all went through a recalculation just under a year ago and we got DA2.0 which saw many sites plumet in the <b>DA</b> metric. That never translated into a drop on Google as <b>DA</b> isn’t considered by Google for ranking purposes.</p>
  2589. <p>Lets take a look at the metrics of one of my client’s domains and you may start to understand the disparity between these numbers and see patterns.

  2591. <p>Beautiful is it not? A spreadsheet chalk full of data. First Id note that the only benefit to these values is collectively … consider how they interrelate, do they disagree?</p>
  2592. <p>In this metrics report the values are often color codes to reflect my opinion of the values I expect in a good SEO site. Red is obviously not what Id want to see.</p>
  2593. <p>If a domain has consistently red metrics its a very strong indicator that there is a problem there. If they disagree which they do sometimes then the jury is you. You have to decide which values you accept as accurate and which ones are likely irrelevant to ranking your keywords.</p>
  2594. <p>Ive added some overall average score boxes that take into account multiple, similar metrics. Thats also important … not all metrics are intended to show the same thing. Domain trust and Trust Flow are similar while Domain Score, Domain Rank and Domain Authority are similar.</p>
  2595. <p>These do generally correlate to one another but sometimes one is oddly higher than usual and that creates an anomaly in the usual spread of these numbers. The oddity can be a sign that the site is optimized towards a metric and not towards Google.</p>
  2596. <p>For instance sites may focus on increasing Domain Authority and by doing so they may leave behind other metrics.</p>
  2597. <h2>SEO Assessments</h2>
  2598. <p>Using the image above if we glance across the data we can likely agree the least desirable domain is the third.  Even with a DA of 10 its average across all of the numbers available is a 4.  With Majestic&#8217;s CF and TF giving it a 0 and its DT gaining a 0. It has a total of 9 to 25 backlinks &#8230;. only 5 to 10 domains refer to that site.  So its likely not a great site &#8230; but the third from the bottom is a different story &#8230;. still with a DA 10.  This time we have an average metric at 10.  We average 4934 backlinks across the 3 indexes and we have 350 to 417 referring domains.  But what stands out is our ratio &#8230; which is flagged in red.  There are 10 times as many domains as IP addresses &#8230; tell tale sign a PBN has been used to manipulate the site metrics.</p>
