Do you prefer to watch a video or read the text in a website?

For the most part, I like to read, unless it's something technical in which case video might be more useful.

When I am reading, I can easily skim the article in question for what is relevant, but when watching a video, it can be hard to skip around and find just what you need. You pretty much have to watch the whole way, or most of the way, through.

I bet. So, I think that explains why short videos are popular.
It's easy to skim written words, but again your feedback is giving vital information that we must remove the fluff from writing, so the readers don't just skim through.

Thank you very much for sharing!

Depends on the subject, but mostly I like to read.

Thanks for sharing your information.

Cheers.

I prefer to read the material

That's great. Helps you to skim easily, I guess. :)

Both :)

Thanks for sharing. :)

Depends I actually like a video with the text on it.

Ah. great. Interesting. :)

For me, at least here at WA, I have been reading, then watching, then reading again. I retain things better that way for some reason. :)

Yes, you see members here prefer one over the other. Wealthy Affiliate has taken care of both types. :)

It depends, but I prefer text. I can stop and think about what has been written. Videos can be paused. But in general, I learn better via text than video.

I guess you write a lot, so you prefer text. But again it is just a guess as reading allows us to exclude portions we want to skim.

Thank you very much for sharing!

Watching a video is definitely better for me. It makes it a lot easier to understand when I see an example rather than reading something and then trying to piece it together .
Hope that helps.

Yes, it was helpful. You're a bit different, and I prefer it your way. :)

Cheers.

Videos have great deal of appeal!

You're like me - visual person. :)

I'd say it really depends.

Depends... if you don't mind please can you share the situation where you would prefer one over the other?

Have you used Gravity Forms plugin? Which version do you use? Have you used alternatives to Gravity Forms plugin in combination or a stand alone? Did it work?
Kindly share.<

sorry, but I have not heard of this plugin. What does it do for you?

Wayne

No worries, it was a while back. I am sorted.

Thanks for your message.

Gautam

Never heard of it.

Never mind. :)

I am not familiar with this tool, but will look it up

No worries! :)

Never heard of it and don't know what it is for

That's fine; you may need it in due course. You could Google WordPress gravity forms if you want to know a bit.

I have not used this plugin

No worries. :)

This might help you to understand how it works.

Thank you for the message!

No, I am using it currently. I wanted members to share if they are happy with it or tried alternatives.

Search Engine Optimization

It is paramount for your SEO that Google indexes all your links.

I can run a batch of 50 links and respond with links that are not indexed. I have some credits to spare

I have 3 sites and indexing by Google search console

That's great. Good for you. :)

Such a nice offer . How does index differ from ranking with Google? Thanks! Pat B

You need to get indexed first! Gautam

I've checked them all by typing in Google search bar. site:mydomain.com. I have over 160+ indexed now, Gautam.

That's great. Good for you if you have the time.

I would typically run in badges of hundreds and send the pages that are not indexed for indexing. It usually takes 10 seconds or less and saves me hours of work.

Thank you for your message.

Thanks, that's great to know Gautam, that is such a time saver!

I have just 4 and I'll get to them. Thanks Gautam

Excellent Mike!

So what's wrong with just doing a google search by typing:
site: and then your domain

Nothing wrong there if you have the time! It took me less than 10 seconds to run a whole batch and point to members that all their links need indexing, so they are careful.
I knew this would come up, but you can see for yourself members are not aware.

Thanks for your message!

Good afternoon Gautam,

To tell you the truth I thought that if Google has your website indexed everything would be ok.
So yes, I would appreciate you looking to see if all is well.

Greetings from the south of Spain, Taetske

p.s. did you see my last post on that virus of some days ago?

Hi Taetske,

I have to sleep now. I will do your pages. I will write again tomorrow.
Cheers,
Gautam

Hi Taetske,
Your URLs are indexed, no doubt. You could manually check the links or send them here so I can bulk check them.
I will read your post and comment there.

Cheers,
Gautam

Good morning Gautam,

I am a very untechnical woman, would not know how to manually check myself or send it to you. I will have to ask my better half if he knows how to do this. I will get back to you. Thank you for your trouble.

Have a nice weekend, Taetske

Hi Taetske,
You could read the discussion thread and use the site: domain to check.

Cheers,
Gautam

what index in google means

in short in means whether Google knows your page exists or not.

I think so

Hi Gautam,

I was interested in getting the rest of my pages indexed on Google? Really hoping to get them on there soon so if you could help that would be awesome!

The pages I currently need indexing are;

https://anxietyreliefs.com/anxiety-relief-methods

https://anxietyreliefs.com/help-anxiety-in-children

https://anxietyreliefs.com/anxiety-and-phobia-workbook-6th-edition

https://anxietyreliefs.com/physical-symptoms-of-anxiety

https://anxietyreliefs.com/dog-anxiety-symptoms

Thanks in advance!

Great! I will check them all and let you know. :)

Well, I will have to check first. :) My tools are super accurate -never let me down.

Very strange! Not quite sure why that is. Can you think of why they would not be found?

Thanks for doing the other pages!

I can confirm it is accurate and you get them indexed, which would be good for your website.

Good luck!

Often they use a links indexer to index backlinks. But you try this with your site:
