Going Deep WITH LUKASZ ROGALA
You need to answer at least 5 questions… Short answers are for loosers
What makes a Good SEO? (don’t give me a crappy answer)
There are 3 main points about good SEO:
1. Stay in touch with client. Don’t bull shit them about the job. Show what you do and why. They have to understand the work to be sure you are expert. Be a partner for your client.
2. Always work with data. Check traffic, use it for on-site recommendations. Stay proactive.
3. Show links you are doing. Talk about them.
What is your opinion about Private Link Networks?
I use some of them for my own affiliate websites. I still build some them but they are doing way more than just pass link juice. 🙂 For example they are great as a source of leads in finance/insurance/loans niches.
What are your favorite 3 ASO Tools
App Annie, App Mind and Excel. 😉
My site has been penalized. How do I recover?
1. Check what was the cause of recovery (match the pattern).
2. If it is related to links – manual penalty – work on link detox. Look for patterns and disavow them. Meanwhile think about new source of backlinks.
3. If it is onsite related penalty – especially panda/thin content – go deep with audit. Use data and create great, fresh website.
