Here's a site I've been working on for a while. At first it was going to be a private membship site, but some things didn't work out and I didn't get the unqiue videos done...So, it I didn't set it up originally to be SEO friendly.
First, this is a great domain name for BRANDING a green energy site. Two 3-letter real words that rhyme, only 6 letters.
Also, it's easy to type in. Type in domains may also be a sign of "quality". If someone cares to type in a site, the may know it and like it.
What makes this "modern seo" is I'm factoring in two main concepts:
User experience factors into the Google algo - If Google measures how users read a page, I'm guessing the longer they are on the pages the better. So I made the pages very big and long, with lots of stuff on them.
I'm hoping that because of how "big" the pages are, people will bookmark/favorite the pages and return that way, a possible indication of "quality" to Google.
The www.ShySky.com pages are "optimized" really for specific keywords, but rather a large "theme" of keywords in a bunch of different combos. I need to work on getting more targeted keywords into the content.
The content at this time is really a first draft. My first draft on content pages is to the reader. The next draft is corrections and directed to SEO.
This is a "hub" page. All you hear about is "Authority pages". But Google also loves hub pages. Hub pages are similar to authority pages in that they have a lot of good links from respected sites, unlike authority pages, hub pages LINK TO other quality, authority pages.
No ads. I want to build links and traffic first. With no ads, it's easier to get links to sites like this. ONLY AFTER getting links AND traffic, I'll post some Adsense, etc.
Another "new" concept: I'm using a lot of "target" links, which are links that point to a specific part of a page. If you notice all the "solar" links in the right column, you'll see they all point to the same "solar" page, but does point to a different part of the same page.
What this means is, some pages can have a link to 10 different area on the same big page, each area SEOed different keywords, with all the links pointed to one big page instead of 10 smaller ones.
It's also a way of randomizing links to the same page for bookmarking, etc.
You should have a lot of links pointed at one page (instead of spread out over 10 pages), but also impact relevancy by linking to very specific sub-topics on a page.
This is a the "opposite" of some traditional SEO optimized pages, which would be to have more pages, each smaller and focused on more specific topics/keywords.
And this strategy may not work at all? Or the pages may take too long to load with all the videos? Or maybe all the Youtube videos will "deduct some SEO points"? Or I'll get distracted and not promote it as I should.
The essential strategy is to get links. But instead of just linking to the individual pages, I'll also link to the target links on the pages. I'm not sure of the ratio, but I'll probably do 50/50, with 50% of a page's links going to the "main" page URL, with the other half pointing to specific targets on the page.
Remember, this site really isn't totally ready (it's close) and I need to rewrite and re-SEO some of it. But look at the strategy I'm trying to check out and make sure you understand "why" I'm doing what I'm doing.
And what do you think?
-Boom boom boom boom.
