    Hello all in this forum, let me first start by saying... I love you all, you have giving me a new light and a new reason to live. I have a huge background with computers but have fell off for a while this website helped me get the ball rolling again as far as information but its soooooo vastly filled that I need a bit of guidance on how I should properly use said info.

    Ok first the website is www.myeventsnyc.com it is a daily events listing that I have going on. I want to know just by looking at it for proper indexing on google what should I do? should the homepage have more text , links etc etc.

    I want to also add more ads and google ADsense has denied me why is this? what can I do to be able to land well with them.

    I plan to start using massplanner and sending out a daily campaign to groups about my website and what current events are happening for the day,
    I plan on also adding a LIST.LY type of feed that will let ppl know things like 10 BEST BARS in nyc 10 best open mic's yada yada yada (do you think this would be a good idea to drive more traffic and have more text on the page? I noticed google is very bitchy about TEXT)
    Thank you and much love

    Thanks for the reply!
    as stated in the description NYC aka USA
    there arent really competitors because a daily listing is just supposed to bring folks onto the page to find events daily free/cheap events I eventually want the folks to submit their own events through me and start advertising with me for money. as well as having ADsense ads running but I just wanna have a better SITE "SKELETON" for SEO and google to index me properly cause right now I dont really see me on the search engine :(

    First off, you need better hosting. Your pages take forever to load! I waited about 10 seconds before entering the website. You need a lot more content for google Adsense and unique content as well. So you will have to get a lot of posts going. Also, you need some traffic before they will approve. I know I am in the same boat.You also need a Terms of service and Privacy policy page.

    the hosting I thought was pretty solid, its BLUEHOST and i have upped the page memory to 256mb, I think it may have something to do with either A the custom theme or B. some improper css code? I REALLLLYYY Appriciate the help and screen shot guys. so do you agree that maybe I should write articles on what is the "BEST BAR" and yada yada that way I have more "TEXT UNIQUE CONTENT" but do BLOG POSTs "articles" need their own sub menus? Id rather have them hidden but only show through like a "slider"

    wow never knew about the terms and policy page Ill be adding that super fast, do you think since this is a DAILY EVENTS LISTING PAGE, I should run some sort of "BEST OF BARS, art shows etc article kind of feed? cause how does one put enough TEXT CONTENT on the main page when its just daily events I want folks looking at which is handled by a plugin on the "EVENTS" section

    Factors have measurements... the units may change from factor to factor. So if the line says "h4 matches to a value of 5 or more" then it means you need 5 or more matches in H4 tags.

    The tool is my own software. It correlates over 300 different on page factors with ranking position for your keyword and tells you which factors appear to influence rankings the most.

    Yep you need the content. You want to build a community and you have to give them something to talk about as well. Posts will help you do that. Easiest, way is ask for interviews. People love talking about themselves and many times you can just do an email interview with them. The nice thing about this is they feel important. You get content. Sometimes over a 1000 words and they share your post as soon as it goes live. You have to do some research about what they are doing though but its worth it. I did it on a project I abandoned and I got like 60 views in a day just from thierone share on facebook. You gain lots of valuable backlinks too.

    You do not need that google looks at your whole website.

    Created the tool myself... I always figured one could reverse engineer the important parts of an algorithm using math. Turns out ... I can. I'm glad you like it. I hope to launch the tool publicly after the holidays.

    That is really awesome. It must make life a lot easier running that thing on sites but the constant updates must kill you.

    I think you should concentrate more on the social side and the seo will be a by-product because that is what your website is all about. Twitter, FB IG all that drive traffic from there and what you have to share is something people readily want to consume. Ok but that's just my way of thinking. If you think about your website it should be a "Viral" type of thing.

    Nah... adding new factors takes me minutes... takes Google as whole lot more time to integrate new factors and redeploy search. The arms race favors my approach. :)

    As far as running a lot of keywords... It takes about 1.5 minutes to collect 50,000 factor measurements for the top 100 results of a search term... that is plenty fast.

    The great thing is that I don't have to put faith into my methods... I don't have to believe people like Rand, Cutts, Mueller, Illyes, etc... They claim stuff... I can say does the data for those factors support the claims? I don't even trust my past experience any more. Some of the things I did 5 years ago wont work today. Some of the things I did 5 years ago still work fine. Heck if I know what will work tomorrow... BUT I can always measure what is working right now.

    I don't care about Google updates anymore. I archive my important keywords over time and I can always compare and see what is different today.

    SEO's relationship with Google is an arms race. That arms race is about to take a turn... not just with my tech, a lot of cool shit is going to hit the market in the next couple years. :)

    You should make a network of related sites.

    NYC Events
    NYC Lifestyle
    NYC Sidewalk Attractions
    NYC Landmarks
    What's Cool in NYC

    Cross advertise... the best links are the ones you control and grow into valuable assets. This allows your social marketing to be broader and more edgy. This also lets you build links slower to each site but with a better cumulative rate. Google limits to 2 results per keyword... with 5 sites you can potentially take all of page one. I do this in places. :) Doesn't hurt to diversify.

    Its a lot more work though...

    Figure out a social and PPC strategy too... if you only use SEO for marketing you are neglecting 95% of your potential.
