Not sure if this is the appropriate thread for this but it's about SEO so I'm putting this here.

I saw this ad on my email about performance-based SEO. I'm not sure what to make of it. I'm sure many of us have SEO clients so I'd like to get your input on "what is wrong with this client/ad?" Or probably I'm the one wrong by thinking that something is wrong with this ad. Here it is:

We would like to hire an SEO specialist who is willing to do SEO where the payments are made in milestones based on performance and not monthly fees. In other words, when our keywords hit certain levels is when we make payments. We will structure the payments so there are larger payments when milestones are hit than if we were paying a monthly fee.

The website is ***.com and the three keywords we are interested in are:

Sigfox
LoRa
Wireless Sensors

We would propose the following:

All three in the top 50: $500 payment
All three in the top 40: $1,000 payment
All three in the top 30: $2,000 payment
All three in the top 20: $4,000 payment
All three in the top 10: $8,000 payment

I have rebranded a site with a new domain. I'm going form stellargaragedoorga(.)com to garagedoorexpertga(.)com




My question is... search console is registering that I have links from "stellar" pointing toward "experts" and that I also
have links from "experts pointing towards "stellar" (See Below) This is a result from a long list of incorrect usage of 301s,
Site Migrations with old links from (Stellar) still in the pages of the new site (experts), and rel canonical tags being miss used.... =/




I have since made changes over 3 weeks ago and removed all links that are pointing from Experts towards Stellar.
So in reality "experts" has zero links pointed towards steller and the only links that should be pointing from stellar to
experts are 301's or rel canonicals : Do you believe if I submit a change of address, will google consider it to be an
infinite link loop? Which I assume would be bad...... or should I wait for search counsel to registar zero links from stellar to experts? ]]>

Is it worth checking your SERP? http://forums.seochat.com/search-engine-optimization-28/worth-checking-your-serp-496579.html Thu, 21 Jun 2018 01:15:21 GMT Hi guys,

I've learned that search results appear differently to different people even though the same search term was used. And that this is because search results are also dependent on the historical search behaviour of a person, geographical location, etc. If so, what's the use of tracking your SERP if you know that this is not the same with different people? How do you tell clients that what they see might be different from what you see and might be different from what their customers see?

And yet you still need to track because it's better to have a gauge than nothing at all. Is there even really a tool for this function considering the above circumstances? ]]>

The translations are located under different directories after the root, (website.com/us/en.html, website.com/sg/en.html, website.com/mx/es.html, etc.). Please note that all pages are almost exaclty the same content just translated for the specific region. We have a site specific to India, Singapore and US. These sites are all in English with exact same content.

There is one page where I am ranking very well for some high volume keywords with the /us/en site. However, on April 22, the traffic dropped dramatically for this page. The page got pushed to page 2 of the SERPs. I noited on the very same day the Singapore English version of the same page, /sg/en, moved up in page rank and volume. It looks like these two pages swapped positions because the overall organic site traffic did not change.

What would cause this to happen? I have canonical tags on every page as well as hreflang referencing every page. Search console does not report on any errors for my hreflang so I'm a little confused why this happened.

Any insight, thoughts, ideas would be appreciated!

Thanks! ]]>

<![CDATA[Do the back-links go wasted when anchor text or context content doesn't match?]]> http://forums.seochat.com/google-optimization-7/do-back-links-go-wasted-when-anchor-text-context-content-doesnt-match-496534.html Tue, 19 Jun 2018 09:13:10 GMT Hi Community,

I have seen number of back-links where the content in that link is not matching with page content. Like page A linking to page B, but content is not really relevant beside brand name. Like page with "vertigo tiles" linked to page about "vertigo paints" where "vertigo" is brand name. Will these kind of back-links completely get wasted?

I have also found some broken links which I'm planning to redirect to existing pages just to reclaim the back-links even though the content relevancy is not much beside brand name. Are these back-links are beneficial or not?

Thanks ]]>

Schema.org Hotel Reviews http://forums.seochat.com/search-engine-optimization-28/schema-org-hotel-reviews-496515.html Mon, 18 Jun 2018 09:23:32 GMT Hi everyone,

I have a question about "Structured data for hotels". A customer of mine has a lot of reviews, but not on his own site, but on different portals (e.g. hrs or Google My Business).

I would like to use these ratings to display the known stars in the SERPs. What is the best way to do this?

As far as I know, JSON LD allows you to record ratings without integrating them on your own site.

Do you have any ideas?

Thank you

Sitemap for a dynamic website http://forums.seochat.com/search-engine-optimization-28/sitemap-dynamic-website-496514.html Mon, 18 Jun 2018 09:05:24 GMT Hi All,

I am having a website in which Blog section and few more pages are updated regularly. In that case, it is quite annoying to change the sitemap regularly on addition of new webpage.

I heard that there are some ways by which I can get my website's sitemap updated regularly by using some sort of php script.

I know one method of using plugins but I don't want to use them as I am eager to learn new ways.

So, if anyone of you knows how to do that it would mean a lot.
