    I've had some experience with SEO, but it was mostly churn and burn. Back in 2014, I made a churn and burn campaign to a BH Campaign (ask.fm tracker) with Google Docs as my money page. I was ranked 1st for a keyword with 22,000 searches per month, it was my first (medium-term) success with online marketing ($50~ per day). But as with most BH success, it crashed and burned pretty quickly.

    I want to perform more sustainable SEO, I have an instagram page i'd like to start ranking on some easy keywords, it's in the food niche.

    I've already made some T1 content here and here, but not really with the intention of SEO or driving traffic, just as a class project really.

    I made this thread to keep me honest with my goal of learning SEO. I will update this thread with something I did to help the SEO of my page, stay tuned, hopefully we can all learn something.

    Today:
    - Made this thread
    - Transferred one of my posts to BuzzFeed for future campaigns, (is it a bad idea to have dupe articles out there?)

    Tomorrow:
    - Figure out what keywords to go for.
    - Figure out backlinking strategy, as there's not much I can do for on page.

    How could they?

    Today:

    Citations:
    - Made BingPlaces account, waiting for PIN.
    - Made Google MB account, waiting for PIN.
    - Made HotFrog profile but won't let me verify for some reason, i've emailed support.
    - Added to BBB, don't really understand the process, waiting I guess.
    - Yelp didn't work, guess I need a real website.
    - Made FourSquare.

    Directories
    - Busybits Web Directory
    - I just realized it's too easy to post on these directories, i'll focus on press releases and web blogs as a T1

    Tomorrow:
    - See what GSA SER can do for me.
    - Post to some more press release websites.

    It's a pretty unique service, and SEO isn't the only way i'm marketing, so shit, if you're looking to cook and deliver Nigerian food to Nigerian Expats in the GTA, hit me up, maybe we can JV

    Today:

    I found GSA SER to have a pretty steep learning curve so I kinda left it alone for now.

    I spent a few minutes trying to submit to PR.com only to realize I needed to pay $30 just to place my link. Tried PR-Inside.com and realized the same thing. So I:

    Made a few blog comments (Waiting on approval for some):
    - https://www.chowhound.com/post/authentic-nigerian-food-toronto-gta-337748
    - https://www.buzzfeed.com/bimadewunm...-know-and-love?utm_term=.ge0dykVVX#.chqa8V22l
    - http://www.travelstart.com.ng/blog/...e-living-abroad/comment-page-2/#comment-19931
    - http://afrotourism.com/trip-idea-blog/20-popular-nigerian-food/
    - http://flavorverse.com/traditional-nigerian-foods/
    - https://allnigerianfoods.com/nigerian-cuisine/comment-page-3#comment-67410
    - https://www.oasdom.com/28-popular-nigerian-food/#comment-4187

    I found these blogs from SEMRush, part of the top 20 of my main target keyword: "Nigerian Food", I figured if I made some blog comments there, it would do something.

    Tomorrow:
    - Plan a few T1's, research article content to buy.
    - Look at the sites on the top 50 of my keyword, make backlinks where I can make them.

    Question for Guru's:
    Do Facebook Comments index?

    Today:

    - Made a Wordpress T1 here: https://nigerianfoodexpert.wordpress.com/, made the 300 word post by dictation, it seems easier.
    - This, in addition to the T1 content I had on blogspot should help.
    - I submitted a link to the ISUU docu-sharing platform, these are new to me, and kind of interesting: https://issuu.com/lafftar, I noticed that the website link has a 'no-follow' tag on it, but the social links just have 'no-opener' tags on them, is it possible that link juice is actually being passed to the social platforms? This article seems to think so.

    Tomorrow:
    - Look into some more docu-sharing links, and other interesting, hard to get, wait-to-approve link types.

    Question for Guru's:
    - Do 'no-opener' tags affect SEO?

    I did a little research on your question.. It looks like Google started indexing Fb comments way back in 2011..
    Quoting from the article .."Matt Cutts, a Google team member, later confirmed this discovery, tweeting: "Googlebot keeps getting smarter. Now has the ability to execute AJAX/JS to index some dynamic comments."
    Further read: https://www.cnet.com/how-to/say-what-google-now-indexing-facebook-comments/

    P.s I am not a guru ..

    Thanks for doing some research man, unfortunately someone else has said they aren't indexed, hopefully we can attract the attention of a Guru who can clear this up :)

    I didn't even check if it was indexed, you're right:

    [​IMG]

    I thought Wordpress generally indexed pretty quickly, however:
    - I had a YouTube video in my post.
    - I posted my link here, even though these are no-follow, maybe it still helps.

    Thanks dudes (y)
