Online Reputation Management is growing faster than I ever realised. The need to keep your profile clean has far-reaching effects and can ruin sales or even job applications.

I have launched this service over at a new domain which will explain more about what I do - or you can head straight over and see more information on the negative search removal options here: https://www.andydrinkwater.com/negative-search-removal/

iQ SEO has moved to https://www.iqseo.org

The time was right to move from a localised .uk domain to something that better served my growing international client base.

It was something I had been thinking about for some time, and now seemed about as good a time as any :)

Internal Links are an absolute must for any SEO campaign.

I see some pretty amazing results - when done right, a well structured site with well defined hub pages and a solid internal linking strategy, can carve its way through the SERPs.

Remember that Google states they use Internal Links as a signal.

When auditing a website, I have noticed a wide range of issues, as you might image. However, you would be surprised at just how many of these are best practice. It seems that a lot of sites are being built 'out of the box'' with issues in place.

In the last 6 months, I have found no less than 96% of sites tested have more than 80% of best practice issues. This leads to bad usability, poor rankings and untold penalties.

Where does the blame lie? With the developer for not knowing better? With the customer for not specifying correctly? One thing is for sure, it is only increasing as more 'web designers' crawl out of the woodwork claiming to know how to build an SEO friendly site 'out of the box'. Scary stuff!

In the next few weeks Search Console is going to change how and to whom we send messages. After the change, we will send messages only to the direct owners of a particular site; owners of parent properties will no longer be sent messages for their child properties.

For example: Currently, if the site https://example.com/dont/panic/have/a/towel triggers a message, all of the following sites will be sent the message:
https://example.com/dont/panic/have/a/towel (the site triggering the message)
https://example.com/dont/panic/have/a
https://example.com/dont/panic/have
https://example.com/dont/panic
https://example.com/dont
https://example.com

With the upcoming change, only the owners of https://example.com/dont/panic/have/a/towel will receive the message triggered by their own site. 

Although this change will affect most messages, critical messages (such as a hacked site alert) might still be sent to all parent site owners. 

We hope this change will lighten your email load, and make your life a little easier. If you have feedback, please let us know here on G+ or in our forums!
