0:00 Introduction
2:00 Announcements – MasterCLASS and timing: https://iftttseo.com/masterclass
5:00 Link Building Services Announcement: https://links.iftttseo.com – boosting IFTTT Networks with FCS Networker and GSA SER
9:00 Showing pricing and layout for the link building service – meant for use on IFTTT Networks and PBNs (private blog networks)
14:00 P1RM clarification – how it’s used / where’s it’s used
15:00 1. Would using Amazon cloudfront as a CDN be a good choice for a wordpress site for both speed and cost versus a $20 p/m cloudflare account? 2. What is your favorite CDN setup for a money site?
16:00 how to you deal with Google dance? I really didn’t care about it when I was only into affiliate SEO but now that I do client work as well, seeing rankings for the the keywords and related expressions I am targeting go down makes me feel very anxious. I know they are supposed to go up later, but that’s a lot of stress and it makes me wonder whether I made the right backlinking decisions.
20:00 Discussing making changes to sites after seeing changes in rankings – how long to wait, why makes small changes, etc
24:00 1) How can I confirm/ensure that all foreign (not mine) RSS feeds I acquire for both the IFTTT Tier 2 process and the separate RSS Academy process have their respective attribution requirements covered? Where do I check within their feeds? I’m 100% newb on that so hoping to confirm so I avoid any pain.
27:00 2) Can I, and if so, what are the considerations/concerns behind using my multiple networks (3 persona-based) for multiple money sites simultaneously – within same niche?
27:00 3) How does article syndication affect outbound links within my articles. For example, an article about joe’s sub shop – where I link to Joe’s – can syndicating that article cause Joe problems with same outbound text links? I’d like to avoid accidentally hurting anyone so hoping to cover that if possible.
29:00 After keyword research, could you go over your strategy for poking a niche and what tools do you use to validate if you’ve done your research correctly? Things like pointing high PR links, PBN links, etc. (SerpShaker: http://semanticmastery.com/serpshaker
, SAPE, Networks, etc)
38:00 Branded Networks: I have told 4 real estate clients about my success with my branded tier 1 network and all 4 of them want me to build their tier 1 branded network NOW. I am really nervous and need your guidance.
1. If they give me their Google login should I make sure that there is a recovery email setup that is not a gmail that they give me access to as well so I can let google know I am good to log in and then I use Firefox, clear cache, cookies, CCleaner etc.
2A. If they only want to make me a manager do I have access to G+ profile, G+ Business, and Blogger to add all the links.
39:00 2B. How many people should I be a manager for before it raises red flags with Google. (Note – limit is 50 at the time of the video recording)
40:00 Are the link building and DFY a one-time fee? Yes!
41:00 Why can’t Google just look at your SEO plugins and figure out that you are gaming the system from that. I have disallowed wp-content with robots.txt but as I understand it Google can ignore that.
42:30 Discussion about plugins and how to vary them if needed
43:00 Is there a video training that is just on branded networks and working with real people and real businesses. For Example: Kevin Jones has a gmail account, google+ profile, and a company page for his audio/video business. What are the best steps to setup his tier 1 ring and gain access to his Google account without causing any issues with Google?

0:00 Introduction
1:00 Masterclass information and details
7:00 Quick overview of http://semanticmastery.com/videoportfolio that looks to be a good way to get your prospects to purchase your services for video seo.
9:00 I noticed on a YT PLAYLIST containing for example 4 videos, that each different video has a different URL (start from here); but the playlist stops at bottom video, is there a method when creating a playlist that it could LOOP the ENTIRE list no matter where the viewing starts?
And since EACH video starting point in the PLAYLIST has a different URL; how can that be utilized in video SEO?
13:00 Playlist URL on youtube
18:00 Silo info – integrating YouTube silo and playlists with your website silo – extra video and website ranking power!
21:00 is it good to use the Google Shortener when needed (give Google the love), I am thinking for Twitter content – and what’s your thoughts on Friends+Me – it looks like it can syndicate to multiple accounts within the same web2 property (multiple twitter accts, multiple Tumblers, etc).
26:00 Hiii Guys, i’m a beginner on all this, and i think i’m the younger one here lol, i’m happy to be with you guys, thanks for accepting me, i started watching your videos +Bradley Benner they’re just awesome, hope you guys all the success, and from now i have something to do every Wednesday as you said :D, good luck !! By the way, if someone can help me by some advices or things that can helps me to start, i would be so grateful.
27:00 When you “season” a persona account, do you just post a status type of paragraph (no links or photos), what procedure should I follow to season the entire RING? Visit each property and post something manually, and observing the Firefox routine of cleaning and matching time zone of where the persona is…
32:00 various comments and questions – how to get into course, etc
34:00 How can I improve my on page seo. I feel that if I better my on page my site will go from #10 to 13 to #3-5 thanks for the help
35:00 Would you please go over a branded persona. For example: Do we set up Gmail and Google+ as a person and then all the other sites as the brand?
41:00 Should we ever be rightly scared of granting certain permissions to any of the accounts we need to authorize for all the IFTTT network accounts? Are there certain permissions that we should be wary of if we see them both inside IFTTT and throughout the net? Have you vetted all the account permission requests for our security?
42:00 Where do you keep yourself up to date on the latest SEO tools and releases? Is there a website where you regularly look that up?
46:00 We have real estate social media clients that we have been working with for a long time. I am trying to wrap my mind around setting up everything correctly with an IFTTT ring and the benefit to our clients…We do not do spam stuff for them. It is real quality content.
What I am worried about: Is there any chance of their personas on all the sites to ever cause them to be slapped by google?
50:00 I have a contextual link in each post on my site that links to another post (siloing). I see that when the post is syndicated, the contextual links are in the article (which I expected). Does this pose a problem with the anchor text being hit with the Google Penguin algorithm?
52:00 Just wondering if you tried P1rankme and if you did any opinion?

00:00 Intro – Bradley, Marco and Chris on the hangout
01:00 IFTTT DFY Networks by Semantic Mastery – networks provided up to our standards
05:00 Question by Itay: Can you elaborate a little on the overall site structure that allows you to target multiple cities within the state and multiple business niches within those cities?
12:55 How do we live stream a pre-recorded video to YouTube?
15:50 How many G+ pages are we allowed?
16:00 How do I delete a G+ page?
16:40 Done For You IFTTT Networks?
16:54 Do you have any training about Keyword research? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BxMEbgMW2CM
17:30 Do you have training for posting to Craigslist?
18:15 Scott Rogers – What is the suggested workflow to be sure you don’t trigger IFTTT prematurely
20:00 John Quackenbush – Will the site be slapped because I want to have a static video?
21:00 Serp Shaker http://semanticmastery.com/serpshaker

22:00 Braulio – I want to go after industries
Would you recommend building sub-domains to each and then build themed IFTTT networks for each to rank videos?
Is there a recommended max number of sub-domains I should have on a single domain?
23:00 Bradley – I have used this strategy on my own sites
24:00 No limit right now on subdomains if they are themed correctly
27:00 Braulio – I want to lead gen videos for pitching clients?
This is a question which will be handled inside the mastermind
28:00 Welcome to the mastermind BJ Ocampo!
Question about the pre-built IFTTT networks that will be offered inside the IFTTT SEO Academy.
Bradley – these are strategies which are only shared inside the mastermind.
29:00 Scott Rogers – In building a BRAND (for example Wedding Gifts), should the persona accounts be “wedding planner person”, “wedding ideas person”, “dress maker person”, or just a bunch of 25 year old ladies?
Bradley – It’s okay to be more general. Money sites & channels should be kept tight.
31:00 Braulio – what would your argument be if he tells you that he’s already on top of the first page paying for Adwords?
33:00 Bradley – don’t argue against Adwords, say you can do both as a source of traffic and leads
34:00 Should I funnel recipes to the themed sites as well or should that feed go to a separate “persona” T2 ring?
36:00 Bradley – You don’t need feeds if you’re using video syndication.
You want to blend other RSS content at tier 2.
38:00 Gray Kirwan – 1) Is paying for dripped social signals per month to money or PBN web pages worth it in terms of helping rankings and helping to boost a sites metrics like TF?
2) Would using software like syndwire or socisynd be better for helping to keep link juice flowing to a PBN site or IFTTT sites?
Bradley – PBNs must be highly themed with good metrics and have a clean link profile
39:00 Mandy Kendall – My concern is for Google and other search engines penalizing for keyword duplication in the url. How serious is this? Can I ever rank pages with duplicate keywords in the url? Looks artificial to me
40:00 Bradley – Yes, it is a serious problem. Several of my sites dropped 15 to 20 spots until I de-optimized URLs.
42:00 Bradley – Four main things Google looks at before checking the rest of the page.
1. SEO Title
2. URL
3. Page – h1
4. Meta Description
46:00 Braulio – Could you please show, if you have, an example of an IFTTT network themed around an industry (national type network) and a geographically based network highlighting the differences between them?
Bradley – Yes, let’s talk about it in the mastermind
47:00 Braulio – When one of your client’s videos looses rank and goes away from the first SERP, what do you typically do next to get it back on, besides using Syndwire or FCS Networker (since you can’t syndicate twice…)?
47:00 Bradley – Livestream or upload it again.
Build a playlist for that video and add more well-siloed videos
50:00 Charlie Banks – in your video on Serp Shaker you mention renting out videos in different markets. Can you share more about what you would do with those videos when you rent them out?
51:00 Bradley- Stay in control using redirects
52:00 Jason Igus – Can you explain a double 301 and its greatness!
how would use GSA and FCS networker properly with our amazing setup
Bradley – Yes, it is discussed extensively in the mastermind
55:00 Clifton Boston – Uses image for question
Bradley – I would say the bottom one
56:00 Craig Smith – Would you recommend creating one YT channel for all trades or one channel per trade?
Bradley – Use YouTube playlists to create silos – Use a geographic playlist

Weekly SEO Q&A – Hump Day Hangouts – Episode 16


Weekly SEO Q&A – Hump Day Hangouts – Episode 16
1:45 Announcement: YouTube Silo Academy Launching. Learn how to silo your channel via playlists so that you can have even more ranking power for your videos. Academy is here: http://youtube.silo.academy
6:30 Announcement: Semantic Mastery YouTube Video Reference Guide available on Kindle. Free through 2/22/2015. Includes discount code for YouTube Silo Academy. Leave us a review if you like it! You can find it here: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00TPZN3OQ
7:50 How do I properly edit meta data for YouTube videos? Will editing the meta of the file add information to both the audio and video?
11:50 Let say that I search for ‘orthodontist, Orlando, FL’ is then “orthodontist” while location is set to Orlando. The results vary greatly between those 2 searches. However, Google returns local results on both occasions. I’ve done some adwords testing in various niches and realized that there’s a lot more searches for KW only than KW City or City KW. It seems that the algo is different for those 2 queries since I see different results. I have the “keyword + city” algo figured out. But I’m having trouble figuring out the KW only algo. I think that we really should since it’s more important and more consumers search that way (based on my Adwords impressions). What do you guys think?
16:45 Is there any metadata for videos you think is useless and vice versa any metadata you think helps you rock out with your sock out (i.e. rank better). With your rss syndication plugin how does the “use a custom url” work? Do I just enter a url without the http:// and is that the url I enter in my IFTTT recipe for the rss feed?
20:00 I’m doing local SEO and trying to rank videos for clients in the medical industry, but in a foreign language. On some of the niches that I’m trying to go for I’m having a hard time finding live unique content sources that publish on a weekly, or sometimes even on a monthly basis, to mix with my RSS feeds. Would I be in trouble if I mix posts in English and a second language on the same Web 2.0? What would you guys recommend?
22:00 Would something that hides your backlinks and prevents bots from crawling your network (like the spyderspanker plugin or modifying .htaccess) be something you recommend or use on your networks?
24:00 Since the IFTTT recipes already include attribution links back to the video and the channel, I would only need the Yoast plugin or your RSS syndication plugin, if I use a WordPress site to embed those same videos, am I right? I’m asking because in the case that I want to rank the videos first, and then rent them to potential clients later, I wouldn’t have a specific website to point to yet, just the video SERPs.
26:00 I’ve learned a ton about ranking videos for local and client SEO from the IFTTT course, and I’m aware that it can be used for almost any type of SEO, such as affiliate programs, CPA, etc. but I’d like to know if you have specific training for each of these (could be in the form of case-studies for ex.) inside Semantic Mastery, and what sort of monetization strategies do you teach?
29:00 Would you mind showing what the inside of Semantic Mastery looks like?
33:00 Announcement: Considering offering Done For You IFTTT network builds. Are you interested?
35:00 Question: I have a video or two that have over 100K views that generate lots of leads for my local roofing business. If I wanted to edit titles/tags/descriptions or even parts of the videos, would YT “start over” with views? Would YT consider it a “new” video?
38:00 I am going to be building a linkbuilding campaign for a nonprofit business. What would be the best sites to aim for backlinks from?
39:30 How unique should each video description be?
41:00 I have a local client who wants a website, google+, Facebook etc. and probably some videos. Since the company will have a google+ in its name how do you suggest I build up a channel that I control so I can rent out the videos?
45:00 I thought you shared a an article about the switchbox method. Do you teach that inside Semantic Mastery?
48:00 In my research I had found that when you upload a video to a video site the metadata is stripped, the only thing that is left is the title. That is why you have to fill everything out on their site – THAT is the metadata. However it is not the case for the custom thumbnail, you can add the metadata for your JPG file (not png). Do you agree?
50:00 Do you use super spun for Serpshaker also?
52:00 What products do you use for uploading videos or streaming live?

Weekly SEO Q&A – Hump Day Hangouts – Episode 15


Weekly SEO Q&A – Hump Day Hangouts – Episode 15
1:00 Below are Questions Regarding my personal You Tube Channel:

Are all the video I create for clients hosted on my personal YouTube channel / account with playlist corresponding to the niches or verticals mentioned above?

Are these videos then linked to the Tier 1 corresponding persona properties i.e. Pets, Medical, Legal, and Home Improvements?

When you use the term money site is my personal YouTube account my money site?

12:00 Using 301 redirects to protect money sites, or as a buffer when you’re doing client work.

Bitly.com and Tinyurl.com were mentioned but they wouldn’t be the best option since you can’t change the link.

Another option that Bradley says he uses more often, is to buy an expired domain, do all the SEO work on that domain, and then do a 301 redirect from there to your client’s website, am I right?

And if I understood correctly there was also a third option, where you could do a meta refresh from a Weebly site? Does that mean you would do a 301 redirect from the domain you bought to Weebly, and then from Weebly to your client’s site?

I don’t think I fully understand how it works…could you please elaborate a bit more about creating these buffers to protect your work?

SECOND question for today’s hangout (on the same topic) :

If a client already has a Youtube Channel, and asks you to rank both his existing videos and all the new ones you create, how can you create a buffer to protect your work?

20:00 What if the client is afraid of losing the investment they made with someone else who created the video? Because you would be “owning” or taking away a video they paid for?

23:00 Which web hosts have you vetted as being the best for speedy site networks while avoiding slow load times, upload size errors, and timeout errors for visitors and administration? I am talking about the hosts that you use in your winning business model.
(affiliate link request, for you to get credit for the referrals)

26:00 How do we move from C Class Hosting to A or B Class Hosting?

29:00 Are there any issues when using the site cloning feature in the WordPress Softaculous Fantastico install?

31:00 Is it better to install WordPress using their simple install or using the cPanel and Softaculous/Fantastico?

32:00 What about the cloning WP plugins? is this better than the other 2 methods I mentioned? which are the best ones please?

33:00 Do you use child themes on your sites? do you build in SEO features into your templates?

34:00 Are there popular free WP Plugins that are known to keep causing errors? I seem to get alot of plugin errors.

36:00 Do you have a winning SEO strategy for YouTube Playlists you can share? I love video syndication.

38:00 Shoutout! 😉

39:00 My client bought a site a while back that wasn’t in the same niche that he was in but it had a lot of juice. Would it be okay to 301 redirect from a site that isn’t in the same niche to a site with a different niche?

41:00 Maybe a silly question but what photo do you use for the persona? If I purchased photos on Istock or big stock they have model releases but can I use those photos without problem?

42:30 Can you go over on page keyword density for exact match domains?

46:00 You say that you put your clients’ videos on your own channel because you have built up authority – if your new client is in a brand new nice for you (therefore a new channel) you will not have the authority – right? Also, if you duplicate it to your channel, won’t YouTube see it as duplicate?

51:00 If the persona is on a gmail account and the gmail account is not being used much for email can Google detect that it is a fake account.

53:00 what is the real difference between unlisted and private videos?

54:00 I am watching on the plus.google page, WHERE is the event page. I’m new to this G+ confusion.

55:00 “seo hosting” is mainly for creating pbn’s? Or is there another specific reason to use “seo hosting”?

55:30 Well that Youtube silo sounds great. Thanks. I am currently working through the ifftt semantic mastery course and have just launched a couple a videos. I am about 3 modules away from being done. Really enjoying the course and looking forward to the results. Thanks!

56:00 What do you recommend how we utilize Syndwire with our new networks?

59:00 You mean Syndwire can do the same job as GSA?

1:02:00 Please touch on the different levels of membership with Semantic Mastery. Thanks.

What is the link to sign up for the weekly hangouts? http://semanticmastery.com/humpday
