I enjoyed giving their API a spin (no coding required by the way). Just thought I’d share.
JSON example (as seen on schema.org here):
"HP Pavilion dv6-6013cl",
"Dell XPS 15 (Sandy Bridge)",
"Lenovo ThinkPad X220"
"name": "Top 10 laptops"
which brings this error:
So I thought, ok. I’ll settle for Microdata, but nope. Again the horse’s mouths example is incorrect.
<div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/ItemList">
<h2 itemprop="name">Top 10 laptops</h2><br>
<link itemprop="itemListOrder" href="http://schema.org/ItemListOrderDescending" />
<p>1. <span itemprop="itemListElement">HP Pavilion dv6-6013cl</span></p>
<p>2. <span itemprop="itemListElement">Dell XPS 15 (Sandy Bridge)</span></p>
<p>3. <span itemprop="itemListElement">Lenovo ThinkPad X220</span></p>
which brings this error:
I’ve tried to order them in JSON and Microdata but it just spits back different errors. Just wondering if anybody has come across this / or has good knowledge in either language who could hopefully slap me and tell me what I’m doing wrong here. Really is a pain that their own docs are incorrect.
Anything to stop us clicking through I guess?! (not like I take an interest in celebrities)
But, how much more weight?
I’m going to pretend I make bread here,
The main KW, "Bread Making Service"…
If one was to change A, to D, would you expect to see gains?
A- BreadMaker: #1 Bread Making Service | Free Bread for 30 days
B- BreadMaker: Bread Making Service | Free Bread for 30 days
C- #1 Bread Making Service – Free Bread for 30 days | BreadMaker
D- Bread Making Service — Free Bread for 30 days | BreadMaker
Out of curiosity I was wondering if anybody had ran any tests, or seen positive/negative effects through moving your main KW from the start of your titles. I’d like to see exactly "how much weight" is added/deducted.
I understand that this is a small factor in the grand scheme of things, but I’d value anybodies opinion.
It seems their bots crawl from muiltiple locations, but which? In a project I’m creating, the hero image changes based on the users location – so knowing where Googlebot comes from is important to me. Does anyone keep tabs on this?
If so, what are your favourite tools?
I’ve had a look at WordStream Advisor which looks interesting, although I’m not in a position to judge it yet.
Linkedin seems like an obvious route to go down, yet – I’ve never heard of anybody using them. Has anybody got any experience with Linkedin ads – are they effective?
Out of nowhere, between 11 am – 1 pm, my impressions and clicks went WILD. Had a look, clicks from all over the world came, despite it being a local campaign within a 7 mile radius. When I mean wild, I mean wild. We had people from all over the country calling us. Even one guy from India… I mean? After 1pm, all went back to normal. Literally spend 1-2 months worth of an adwords budget within 1-2 hours (Google tripled my daily budget)…
See how steady the campaign has been over the months.. then boom:
This is the hourly fluctuation within the day… just out of nowhere.
What do I do, and what is the cause?
Most SEOs say directories are dead, even human edited ones. I wasn’t around when directories were a huge thing; I have heard of dmoz, but they’ve closed down now.
Please could someone recommend a human edited directory which has, or had a great repuation – but won’t break my bank account, which I can sign up with, so I can then conduct my test with directories.
Also if anybody has any tests which would be interesting to conduct, tell me about it and I will probably put something together
