Search Engine Optimization

Hey guys,

An ad popped up on my FB feed, and I visited the site. diib.com

I find it quite helpful and clever.

Have you heard of it? Have you tried it? Do y

Hi Andy, you have some great help here. I personally use Yoast. Have a great day.

Thank you for your comment. I have no idea what Yoast is but I guess now I have to look it up lol

There is a free version or a paid version and tutorials on how to setup.

I'll check it out; thank you!

You`re welcome.

Hey Andy,

As with most tools and software, you'll get those who love it and those who don't.

I DON'T... Hahahahaha!!

Here's my reasons why.

It's basically a "cheaper" version of semrush and ahrefs, but with nowehere near the amount of tools and information.

No "tool" or "software" can really do much for a website, they are mainly there to provide advice, based on assumptions.

Not ALL tools get this right, and often the "advice" given is pretty terrible (an example, is an SEO plugin giving you a perfect 100/100, I will guarantee that the article is bloody horrible and unlikely to rank simply because it's focused on search engines and not on people).

As with many platforms, tools, software, the owners are out-and-out marketers. Once more, as great as a platform, tool, or service is, if it's owned and run by an "out-and-out marketer" there will be a lot of BS, disingenious advice, and advice aimed at making you "purchase something" or "upgrade".

Guess what?

Diib is full of this kinda stuff, mainly trying to sell their users content and backlinks.

I've previously read the story of a service provider who was "advised" certain things by Diib.

The tool said Last Year (2022) that his site had been hit by the Helpful Content Update, therefore he needed to PURCHASE better content.

Plus, the tool explained that his DA was very low so he needed to PURCHASE backlinks.

Turns out the website owner is a landscape gardener, once investigate by a "legitimate" SEO, he HAD NOT been hit by the Google Update, and as his work was seasonal, this dip in traffic happened every year.

Realistically, this guy's business was going well, he was getting many customers from his website, and had done for years, so much of this "advice" was simply aimed at getting more money out of him.

Diib will typically provide details of what's going on with your website, then provide recommendations, and WOW, what do you know, they can then SELL you things to match their recommendations.

This is JUST MY Personal Opinion.

As I say, some people love it, some hate it.

Sure, it's very handy to have a tool that provides a lot of website and competitor data, hence why things like semrush, ahrefs, ubersuggest, SimilarWeb, SerpStat, etc. are so popular.

However, most of these tools have free trial periods or large discounts for the first month, so there's no harm in giving them a go and coming to your own conclusions.

Partha

Lol, I always heed your words, Obi-wan Partha. And yes, I completely understand what you mean.

But you know how it is. A fellow, like me keeps looking for ropes. I am on a trial with these guys for a cheap £8, which will jump to £45 next month, so I probably won't renew it. I planned to harness what I could and throw it away. That is why I posted this question to see if I get some borrowed wisdom.

So I did. And thank you!

No worries.

You can also try the free trials at semrush and ahrefs too (I think many, many people would agree that these are the two best SEO software tools out there).

Plus, ahrefs has a lot of free tools that you can use (with limited access), e.g. keyword tools, backlink checker, keyword difficulty checker, youtube keyword tool, Amazon keyword tool, etc.

Ooooh, I didn't know about that. Thank you very much!

Hi - I think the pricing is quite misleading.

Only the first month is $7.99, and after that, it is $44.99 per month, and I don't think it's worth that.

Much of the information can be found for free or certainly cheaper elsewhere.

And some of it is just their opinion, such as "Your Daily Health Score" which doesn't really mean anything, they use their own algorithm to calculate this, which may not tie in with what Google is looking for.

As you can tell, I'm not impressed!

Thank you for the input. Everything helps. I probably won't keep it; however, if the recommendations "objectives" I follow show me the expected results, I will reconsider it. I can't do all the objectives they offer, and then comes the upsell of super expensive tools, which I have no intention of paying for.

Well, I have a month to see what happens, but you guys help me to see through the fog they create.

Thank you!

It looks quite good to me, I haven't delved too deeply into it but shows on the surface some good stats.. have looked into my older sites and new ones are showing useful information :)

Thank you. If it's worth the money, I'll keep it. Joury is still out.

I, like many others, have completed the training created generously by Kyle. Although here and there, it is rather obsolete today, it still has a lot to offer.

Do you know what, I didn’t know training was there, oops 👍 been so busy with everything this week, there doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day ✅

Oh yes, there is:

Ta Magnus 👍

Pleasure :)

The WA training is literally what it's all about. It's the entire reason I've been able to find success. No better platform out there that is more straightforward and affordable.

I agree. Thank you for your comment!

I totally agree, Eric!

Jeff

and just as a bit of a teaser, but there just might be a whole new refresh coming very soonnnnn... :)

Yes, Kyle has mentioned something like that, and it needs a bit of updating.

I got into level 2, Andy, but I originally came here for the website hosting and site support to promote my books. That is how I stumbled on to WA!

Jeff

Oh yes, that makes sense. And that is certainly a great reason to join here. The hosting and the tech support here are great.

Thanks, Andy! I agree. After a travesty with Square Space years ago, that led me to here, and there was so much more than I expected, when I joined!

WA Affiliate Program

Hi guys,

I understand the concept of sharing posts from WA, using the affiliate tracking on the top of each post, but just out of curiosity:

Hey Andy,

The following tutorial may offer you the help you seek: when sharing any WA blog posts so that YOU get the credit should someone sign up from content that YOU shared and they clicked on.

Hope you find this helpful.

Yes thank you for that.

great answer. I've saved it.

The one that shares the Affilaite link gets the credit as far as referrals goes .
So in your example Y gets the credits as someone signs up to your affiliate. X doesn't get any credits as a result just that they have provided useful and revelant content that draw a member in to sign up as Y shared the link.

That is what I thought. I guess can't have the cake and eat it too, innit? Thank you for clarifying that.

Well its swings snd roundabouts. You have the potential to share someone elses posr which you haven't put the work in.

most welcome this also is the same for sharing someone's training as well.

Here is an old post from Carson but note the sharing aspects have changed greatly but explains this as well. I remember someone asking the same question years ago but can't find the response which I believe was from Kyle.

Right. Thank you!

Thank you for that!

Wow, look at that. In 2012, there were options to turn the share function on/off. Interesting. Blog posts also showed how many times they were shared and where. Well that was 11 years ago lol

You are welcome

Yep a lot has changed since then I believe it changed due to members posting the links and most would have been taken as spamming hence the change to what it is now.

Yes that makes sense. Thank you.

I would also love to see either Kyle or Cason respond so we can have a proper and up to date response.
