Fascinating experiment from +Marie Haynes
 
And maybe the biggest lesson is what Google did to all the pages that were part of the test! :) Is the order of keywords in a title tag important? An experiment. via +Marie Haynes #seo https://www.mariehaynes.com/keywords-in-title-tag/ 
@marie_haynes Interesting. Would also have been interesting to see what Google presented you with if you'd searched the actual title-tags. Dan Howdle · 41m41 minutes ago. Dan Howdle @DanHowdle. @marie_haynes Google often truncates of puts website name in place of half of title tag on our ...

Why Are Some People So Much Luckier Than Others

I found this piece to be surprisingly powerful and interesting: https://m.signalvnoise.com/why-are-some-people-so-much-luckier-than-others-b07e08e265f1#.yi5ixhg5n

To be honest, I'm generally not a believer in "you make your own luck" and I think that many of the advantages that I've had are due to circumstance and right place/right time. But, the research in this article is worthy of a read, even for skeptics like me.
James Scott Bumgarner, more famous as James Garner, film and TV star, passed away recently at the age of 86. Many people…

Modelling the Demand Distribution Curve of Your Industry/Niche Can Help You Know How to Invest in Marketing Channels

That's the topic of my latest Whiteboard Friday: http://bit.ly/distributioncurve
It's a new year, and that means it's time shift into some new habits regarding your keyword research. Rather than simply targeting marketing blasts at either the in-demand or the long tail, you may want to think about carefully targeting your tactics to the shape of your niche's keyword demand distribution curve. In today's Whiteboard Friday, Rand details four steps to using these curves to support and improve your existing strategies.

Can SEOs Stop Worry About Keywords and Just Focus on Topics?

http://bit.ly/KWsVsTopics
My latest Whiteboard Friday disagrees with some other practitioners about the approach to keywords vs. topics in page targeting and on-page optimization.
Should you ditch keyword targeting entirely? There's been a lot of discussion around the idea of focusing on broad topics and concepts to satisfy searcher intent, but it's a big step to take and could potentially hurt your rankings. In today's Whiteboard Friday, Rand discusses old-school keyword targeting and new-school concept targeting, outlining a plan of action you can follow to get the best of both worlds.

Optimizing the Targeted Link Building Process

New Whiteboard Friday: http://bit.ly/TgtLinkBuilding

In this week's Whiteboard Friday, Rand goes over why targeted link building is still relevant today and how to develop a process you can strategically follow to success.

"The root of this problem isn’t about whether or not you have kids. It’s about being decent to one another, and respecting someone else’s life and the choices that they’ve made (or the ones they’ve been unable to make), even when they are radically different from your own. There’s no war. There’s just people being shitty to one another because they’re looking for external validation for really big life questions that don’t have a clear answer."

When you are my age, everyone starts caring about your uterus. Not in a fun way, where they send it text messages or memes featuring shirtless Jeff Goldblum circa Jurassic Park, but in a very critical, “what the fuck is wrong with your downstairs human factory and, by extension, you” kind of way ...
