    Task management for teams or to do list?

    Do you invite your clients to the project or do you use it for just internal project management?

    Task management for teams or to do list?

    We use a combination of Basecamp and Trello for assigning tasks but mainly Basecamp. Those of you who are using Asana, can you hide certain files / discussions from the client or do they have full access to the entire project. Basecamp has this functionality which we really like.

    An Interview with Marie Haynes: Saving Sites and the Future of Link Building

    Mary, I subscribe to your newsletter which has been a great resource, and I remember you saying something in regards to a recovery of one of your clients with just submitting a disavow list. This was in regards to the October update. Have you seen more examples of this since then? I'm curious as...

    An Interview with Marie Haynes: Saving Sites and the Future of Link Building

    I agree Casey. It's still a significant signal so it's hard to ignore.

    An Interview with Marie Haynes: Saving Sites and the Future of Link Building

    That's a good question as it's hard to expect people to link to a service or product page. We focus on outreaching to people / websites that would be interested in sharing or linking to a long form article we've created for the client . We do link to services or product pages from these articles...

    An Interview with Marie Haynes: Saving Sites and the Future of Link Building

    I will add a slight variation to what is presented above. We actively build links (manual outreach only) for some of our clients and have seen a change in their effectiveness with the latest algorithm tweaks starting in April. What we've noticed is that the content that you are building links to...

    The Medic Core Algorithm Update - August 1, 2018

    We have a regional pest control company which has had really good rankings for several years. Since the August update we've seen Orkin leap frog them in some of their main keywords. We also have a Human Resource IT company (small company) that was displaced on several keywords. In reviewing the...

    GMB Keyword Stuffing Penalties: Case Study by Sterling Sky

    Joy, How big of a signal do you think the keyword in the GMB business name is? We feel it's a significant signal but haven't done an official study. I'm curious with all the accounts you've looked at if you feel the same. - Chris

    The Medic Core Algorithm Update - August 1, 2018

    We have a local pest control company that has had the #1 and #2 spots for "pest control" in Jacksonville FL which is the main keyword. We've had those spots consistently for over a year. After the update we now see Orkin in the #1 organic spot. I think this correlates with what I'm hearing from...

    A GMB test - URL to home page or to location page - results

    I would like to see the actual data variables such as duration of test, time of year, actual traffic number differences. We have a 75 location client and a 13 location client that we are doing this with so would like to compare notes. I've debated the same thing but have opted to go with the...

    Anyone know of a Pinging service for URL's and Title Tags?

    Thanks Linda and travelincat. I am looking for a site wide application. Unfortunatley they aren't on WordPress but most of our clients are so it's good to know iThemes has that capability.

    Anyone know of a Pinging service for URL's and Title Tags?

    Hi All, I'm looking for a pinging service that will send an alert if a URL or Title tag has changed. We are working with a CMS that it's easy to change URL's without the user knowing. Also, we have several people pushing live content with very little oversight. We've experienced URL's changing...

    Do Exact Match Domains Still Work?

    I know this is an old thread but it recently was brought up again in the forums and this is my first time reading it. One point that I didn't see talked about is the effect EMD's have on link building. A natural backlink profile has a good amount of www.your-domain.com anchor texts pointing to...
