  1. I think I get what you are going for with the music, but it is just a little bit too much. Dial it back a notch and I think you are golden.
  2. I wonder how many customers she lost because of her insane rantings or if her followers are largely just as crazy.
  3. I checked out Geru. Figured for the one-time price it might be useful. It's not bad for visualizing your sales funnel. Could certainly be a useful tool for client pitches. I have never heard of anyone pitching a client with a sales funnel for SEO/PPC services, and something like this would certainly make you stand out. I'm sure there are some agencies that do that. Other than that, it doesn't do much for me. Having to enter in your own predictions for traffic and conversions makes it feel more like a toy than a useful tool. I found myself doing a lot of "what if" dreaming. Have not tried Funnelytics yet because of the monthly subscription. Not that it isn't worth the money, but I tend to sign up for things like that and then let it sit for 6 months before I start using it. Going to wait until I really have some time to invest in it.
  4. I recently made the switch from Ahrefs to SEMrush. I had used SEMrush years ago and moved to Ahrefs because they had the better link index. I also used SpyFu for advertising data. I moved to SEMrush because they had better advertising data than SpyFu and they are doing a much better job on the market research side of things for finding and uncovering keywords to target than Ahrefs is, in my opinion. If you want to do some niche research, I highly recommend checking out SEMrush on their 7-day trial.
  5. I have seen you say this before and I absolutely agree. Keyword cannibalization is a conversion optimization problem when a page that would convert better is not ranking in the SERP over a page with lower conversion chances. It doesn't prevent pages from ranking or hold them back in any way.
  6. Lol. SEOs are going to be running around with their hair on fire for six months when this is announced and then it will probably land with a thud and nothing will happen. Just like the big mobile update and the pagespeed updates.
  7. I'm pretty sure Google more or less invented it. I had never heard it before they started using it in their rater's guidelines.
  8. That whole "study" has so much BS in it. It's a shame. Brian used to put out some real practical stuff. Now and then some questionable BS, but mostly decent content. Now he has gone full Neil Patel on the BS scale.
  9. I really liked the new layout, but they have already rolled back parts of it. Didn't last very long. I hope the favicons come back permanently. I have seen them pop up now and then, but not consistently.
  10. I hope you guys really do abandon Amazon and others follow. I don't see enough doing it though for it to make a difference. There just are not enough good alternatives out there. I have heard people talking about WalMart, but their conversions are trash compared to Amazon.
  11. You told me it was going to be a drastic departure from the old theme, but I didn't imagine this. I like it.
  12. Google seems to do this every year. They release a couple of big updates right before Black Friday. Then usually over the next couple of weeks, they roll 90% of the updates back.
  13. So let me get this straight... If I see a house on fire down the street and tell a couple of my neighbors who then call the fire department, it doesn't matter that the house is actually on fire. What matters is that the fire department gets to talk to me and ask me about the house being on fire. That's what's important?
  14. Anyone get hit by the Cloudflare outage this week? I had one site get in a bit of a mess. When Cloudflare went down it reverted to the actual host. That would be fine except I did not have an SSL certificate installed there, so most browsers were throwing up warnings and chasing visitors away.
  15. The last two games I felt like the team was inviting disaster and just barely avoiding it. They are doing just enough to win despite some really sloppy play.
  16. I'm going to go ahead and call bullshit on that one. None of the other mods spend any time here. Most of the mods their don't give two shits about the off-topic area, and for good reason.
  17. Can we please bet back on topic of bashing the other place and their pathetic mod team? Thanks
  18. It is a great tool if you are interested in optimizing for speed and usability. Right from the horse's mouth so to speak. Like you, I'm surprised more people are not actively using it.
  19. I'm glad to see someone else is feeling this way too. I don't understand why anyone would think keyword cannibalization is a thing. Sites regularly have multiple pages ranking for the same keywords. What keyword cannibalization is basically saying is that sites are awarded X amount of ranking power for a keyword by Google and if you have multiple pages targeting that keyword, then X gets divided up among them. However, if you only have one page targeting the keyword, that page gets the full power of X. If you have been studying and working with SEO for more than 2 weeks, you would know that is not how Google works at all. The only place this could have some merit is if you have Y number of internal and external links pointing to these pages and you consolidate them to one page. That would certainly show a boost. That's not what the cannibals (my new nickname for them) are saying though. They are advocating "de-optimizing" the other competing pages by taking the keyword out of title tags, headings, content, etc.
  20. Is this officially a DC movie or something borrowing heavily from Superman lore? If it is the latter, it would seem to be screaming for a lawsuit wouldn't it?
  21. Nice job Burger King. This is Wendy's troll level. I'm impressed.
  22. Yoast: I bet we can fuck over Wordpress users worse than anyone else. Wordpress: Hold my beer.
  23. It's about freaking time. I can't believe they let this bug go on this long. It has always been one of my favorite tools to use. The text-only version was especially useful in explaining to web designers why their code sucked.
  24. Lol. They must feel like idiots now. Hopefully, they were smart enough to get those people over to other platforms.
  25. I posted a thread that has disappe.... Oh wait. Wrong forum. Nevermind. Carry on.
