  1. Here comes Google tipping their fingers on the scale again... https://webmasters.googleblog.com/2020/05/evaluating-page-experience.html
  2. If you scroll to the bottom of the page you will see an option that says Themes with a down arrow beside it. Click that and you will see a new theme option called Clicked Blue. Pick that and the forum will load as a more "traditional" blue and white color scheme.
  3. As I mentioned in the update to the forum post, I'm not just rebranding Spartan Marketing Academy into Clicked.Marketing. I'm also rebranding The SEO Pub, LLC as Clicked Marketing, LLC. I just got the official paperwork back from the state authorizing the LLC name change, so things are moving along. The new website is almost done. As soon as it is, I will be doing 301 redirects of all The SEO Pub pages to the new pages on Clicked Marketing. Right now, locally I rank in the local places box for pretty much every SEO related search. I'm going to keep the same GMB and just change the name. I'm not going to go on a big campaign getting all citations changed. I'm going to take care of big ones like Facebook, Manta, Yelp (fuckers), etc. I have done this before changing domains and never saw a drop in rankings. I have never done it changing domains and business names. I am not hugely concerned if I do lose local rankings. I get very few local leads (like 3-4 a year tops despite my rankings) and have few local clients. It will be an interesting opportunity to see how things are handled by Google. My NAPs will certainly be a bit inconsistent. Will that really matter or does Google use the redirect to compensate for that?
  4. Create new users. Then edit the posts and change the author.
  5. Someone needs to log into her computer and ban the InfoWars domain.
  6. I just noticed this option pop up on one of my client sites. They are in the healthcare niche. I would imagine this is showing up only for businesses in those categories. Anyone else see this?
  7. I know Elementor has been getting hugely popular lately. If you are using Elementor Pro or the Ultimate Addons for Elementor plugin, there is an attack going on by hackers right now you should be aware of. https://www.wordfence.com/blog/2020/05/combined-attack-on-elementor-pro-and-ultimate-addons-for-elementor-puts-1-million-sites-at-risk/ Elementor Pro is only vulnerable from this attack if you allow user registrations. If you are not using the Ultimate Addons plugin and do not allow user registrations, you should be fine.
  8. Many hosts offer Let's Encrypt through cpanel. If yours does, it's a matter of clicking like two buttons to get it installed. Pretty easy.
  9. It's an acronym for Your Money or Your Life related content. It's a way of designating content that can impact your happiness, safety, physical or mental health, and financial stability.
  10. That's funny. I was just talking to someone earlier today who was afraid a small canonical issue on a few pages was going to kill their crawl budget. It was probably a 10 page site.
  11. As I age, I'm becoming a big fan of applications and devices that offer "dark modes".
  12. We have re-branded. Things are going to be a little messy for a bit. Your patience is appreciated. I have been wanting to re-brand The SEO Pub for a long time. I do a lot more than just SEO for clients and have for over a decade. Clicked will have a better brand story. While I was at it, I decided to do the same with the old Spartan forum. As much as I love the Spartan theme, I never liked how close the name was to another place. Even though I was using Spartan before I knew that place existed in other businesses, people thought I tried to rip the theme off from them. And Spartan is just overdone. I wanted something more unique. Anyhow, I can talk more about that another time. In the meantime, we will be squashing bugs. I think I got all of the 404 issues ironed out. I have a lot of places I need to remove mentions of Spartan. Everyone should be able to login with their old usernames without issue. Feel free to shoot me a PM if you find any other bugs I should be aware of.
