Move On From 10 Old SEO Methods

2

I’m proud to say that I’ve never been responsible for a site that has been punished by any of the Google Panda/Penguin updates.

I’ve seen my fair share of Google fallout though, usually brought forth by someone after they’ve seen their traffic tank. They don’t know what happened, why, or much less how to fix it.

Truth be told, I’m surprised by how often I’ve been presented with this scenario. Every single time it’s boiled down to using bad SEO or outdated SEO tactics that they consider tried and true but are no longer valid.

As Mark Jackson stated in “7 Habits of Highly Effective SEO”:

While we must be aware, and understand, things like Google Panda/Penguin and other major changes in the algorithms, if we focus on doing “good marketing”, all other things should fall in line, and major algorithm changes shouldn’t be a concern.

And that’s the crux of the issue:

Inbound Marketing in Various Languages

5

Inbound marketing involves getting potential customers to come to you. Consumers are no longer passive recipients of direct marketing messages (if they ever were).

Many people are becoming increasingly resistant to traditional “outbound” marketing techniques. Telemarketing, print and broadcast advertising, email shots, and other techniques are increasingly seen as unwanted intrusions to be avoided where possible – or simply ignored.

Inbound marketing works by providing quality content that people actually want to access and engage with. This may be in the form of website content, blogs, or social media posts.

CSS3 For Internet Explorer : Compatibility Tools And Resources

5

CSS3 has changed the way of representing websites, with lots of advanced properties like border-radius, box-shadow, border-image, transform etc. CSS3 gives web designers complete independence to achieve the desired results. CSS3 has opened up many exciting options to refresh the creativity levels of a designer. Despite being futuristic web styling technology, CSS3 has not yet been accepted completely, or in other words we can say CSS3 still has a long way to go to prove itself to the entire community of web designers.

CSS3 Compatibility Tools, Resources and References for Internet Explorer

The main problem with CSS3 is its compatibility issues with web browsers, most of the modern web browsers have full or partial support for CSS3 and other related web technologies. If you are an Internet Explorer user or you want your site to be IE compatible then you have to think twice before using CSS3, because IE has major compatibility issues regarding some CSS3 properties.

Now you have two options to solve the problem – first change your choice of Internet Explorer and adopt other browsers like Firefox, Chrome or Safari or second, use the following tools and resources for Internet Explorer to beat the compatibility issue.

WordPress for Beginners: Power charge your site for SEO

1

WordPress Permalinks

While many SEO experts put a lot of emphasis on keyword-rich URLs, they don’t seem to matter so much recently. Moreover, with the latest Google Penguin update you can pull an over-optimization trigger quite easily. So instead of fine-tuning every post URL and stuffing keywords in it, just make sure your URLs are text-based and not post-ID based (like www.yourblog.com/?p=123).

This means to go to the Settings/Permalink Settings page in your WordPress admin and make sure the “Post name” option is selected. This is also the best way to make sure your link makes sense by itself. And when someone links to your post by using the URL as an anchor (which many bloggers do), you’ll still have a link with some keywords in it.

Another thing, even if you make this permalink change in the settings, WordPress always makes post-ID based URLs work. This may sometimes lead to duplicate-content issues if someone (or you by accident) link to a post using the UD. The plugins that I talk about in the next section will help you to solve this issue.

Using SEO Plugins

There are plenty of SEO plugins but these are the two I like most: All in One SEO Pack and WordPress SEO By Yoast. Both are very useful but I recommend you to use only one of them at a time. Using them together may lead to conflict.

Using All In One SEO Pack

In All in One SEO Pack, load its main page in Settings and make sure the plugin status is enabled.

When you want to migrate your WordPress to a new host or server, you may have trouble transferring your backup data, mostly existing content. You may have a large backup file but WordPress limits you to import backup files of only 2Mb in size.

XML Splitter

There is no other way to complete the migration but to have your backup files sized less than 2Mb, which is almost impossible especially with files that have already exceeded the size. What you can do though is split the file into chunks of smaller sizes.

In this tutorial, we will show you how, using two different methods.
