So, here's an interesting statistic for you. Did you know that 49% of searches in Google result in no clicks whatsoever? But, what exactly does that mean and how does it impact you? Well, this is all down to Google's featured snippet.As you may know, Google has a featured snippet at the top of the page that it deems to be the best answer to your question. Let's take a look. Say you are searching for "what plant is best for a bathroom"On the results page, at the top is the featured snippet. See
So, I plan to address some of what are considered to be ranking factors and discover whether they are true or false.Today, I will start with the age of your domain. Does it matter? Will an older domain rank faster?Well, the short answer is no. And John Mueller of Google has confirmed this with this quote - "domain age helps nothing"It certainly used to be a ranking factor, and as such, people were tempted to buy "pre-aged" domains to get them ahead of the competition.

So, I am assuming this is new because I have never noticed it before. To become a certified commenter and earn cash for leaving comments, the requirements are to leave 50 comments in 30 days, have at least an 80% approval rate, and less than 20% skip rate.However, it also now states you have to be a Premium or Premium Plus member for 90 days before you can be certified. This will hopefully deter those individuals who join the platform simply to make cash through commenting and subsequently leav
So, just a quick post today to introduce you to a new tool. You may have been using Jaaxy to search the ranking position of your posts. However, as you are aware, it only shows a result if you are on the 1st page of Google. In other words, the top 10. While that may be our ultimate goal, it's nice to have a bit of encouragement by perhaps finding out if we are even in the top 100, the first 10 pages.

Here are five must-write blog topics that can be adapted for any niche.Seasonal ArticlesThese are more suited to product niches and you need to plan well in advance for them. This allows for the post to be indexed and ranked. For example, Valentine's Day is coming up, but if you haven't already got your post out there, you have probably missed the opportunity.

So, I am simply going to copy and paste what Kyle said in response to a member's question. Not sure why he didn't create a blog post on this, as it addresses some concerns about the WA ranking system. The implication is, that members who respond to questions with a simple reply such as "I see you got your answer" or "thanks for asking, I have learned something" will not be ranked as high as those who actually answer the question.Of course, I am sure we all know that there is nothing to be gaine
