Free Broken Link Checker

I thought it was only the other day that I wrote about checking your links when in actual fact it was close to a year ago. Oh, how time flies. That post was called Google Tip, Check For Broken Links. It was an important post because broken links can be very harmful to your blog or website. I mentioned a couple of free broken link checkers in that post. In this post I’m going to go one better.

Before I get to that though I want to bring back SEO Sam to reinforce the importance of checking for broken links.

You see, broken links are the weak link in all your SEO efforts to get noticed by Google. In essence broken links tell Google you don’t care. This in turn turns Google off your site.

The reason for this post is to introduce you to a new tool that has been brought to my attention. It’s been awhile since I’ve linked to another blog, which just goes to show how much I liked this post. And no, it had nothing to do with the fact that the blog owner, Barb Brady, is a pretty blonde.  :cheesey: Read the rest of this entry

How To Promote YouTube Videos

In last weeks post I told you that making money with YouTube was possible. I also mentioned how one should share their videos via as many social media sites as possible. The reason for doing this is because you want to get as much traffic to those videos as possible. I showed in that post how important traffic was to increasing the earning potential of your videos. Driving traffic to your video is a very important facet of being able to promote YouTube videos. The question is, apart from social media, how can you promote YouTube videos?

Promote YouTube With SEO 

  • SEO, or Search Engine Optimisation, is the best way to drive traffic to your video. How many of you just upload your video and hope for the best? That’s a common newbie mistake and one that is easily to overcome. Using SEO where others don’t will give you a definite advantage. If search engines can find your video they can send a lot of traffic your way.
  • Keywords are important. The first thing you need to do while uploading your video is to give it a catchy title, one that you think people will search for. You then need to fill the keyword field putting in as many keywords as possible. It’s these keywords that help people to find your video. Your title should also contain one or two important keywords. Note: YouTube refers to keywords as tags. If you’re not sure what keywords to choose you can use something like Market Samurai to do all the hard work for you. Read the rest of this entry

Link Removal Requests How I Handle Them

Have you been getting a lot of link removal requests? I know I have and I also know I’m not the only one. My mate Mitch has received so many he even wrote a post about it called Annoying Link Removal Requests! That post also has a video that I’m sure you will find interesting.

The reason your getting all these emails is because for one reason or another the sender of the email has upset Google causing them to receive the “Unnatural Link Warning” email. Here’s one I’ve received just the other day.

We’re seeking to address an “Unnatural Link Warning” that Google has issued to LINK REMOVED. As part of our exploration into this matter, we have discovered the backlinks sources found on your website might be faulty in some way and causing Google’s protocols to react with this response.  We kindly ask you to remove the backlinks listed below as quickly as you possibly can so that we may continue to work with Google in resolving the “Unnatural Link Warning” assigned to us.

Naturally the email may vary but they’re all asking for one thing, for you to remove the link to their site. If they’re smart they may supply the post where the link can be found, if not they expect you to find and remove them. If it’s the latter I simple ignore the email. Read the rest of this entry
