Backlinking is much more than getting more than the other guy. In this competitive analysis "PredictiveResults.com" gets edged out for their targeted keywords than the other two sites because sites linking to them are a more diverse set. Having less topical trust or other metrics are less influential these days.

This was my FB tech rant tonight after 2 hours with Bluehost tech chat. Don't read it if you're having a good day ;) Seriously.

But if I don't turn this day into a laugh then I won't sleep well...or less than I normally don't sleep lol.

》WARNING: TECH RANT AHEAD《
--- Coming down with a cold seems like the highlight of my day cuz ...It Can Always Be Worse -

And by THAT I mean I could finally give up on trying to fix a DNS issue with my one Calgary Real Estate website to find all 20 something websites disappear.

Yeeeah...that's 20x worse by any Asian math theory. FML

Anatomy of a Bad Click
I got on Bluehost live tech chat to get help with the DNS not resolving and was bored ...soooo I decided to upgrade my cPanel software while I was waiting...then POOOF one bored mouse click and an error free cPanel upgrade 20 minutes later, I find all my websites are gone.

Just to be clear. That's 20 client websites that I had moved from 2 other overcrowded webservers that were performing badly. Moving them was a painful solution to that problem. It's taken a month to get to this point...which is now more of a black hole than a point in time.

Also...just in case your wondering, I've managed literally hundreds of websites and a dozen VPS webservers with as many hosting companies in all kinds of companies including fortune 500 companies, Web production houses and ad agencies. This ain't my first cyber rodeo.

It is however, the first time I will be going to bed knowing, unless Santa restores my websites under the tree, I will be having a very bad season.

On the upside this has been very therapeutic and I still have the other half dozen shopping carts and websites that aren't on my server.

...well technically no websites are on my server, but we covered that •_~

Jazzed up the profile pic with a little more information. I noticed that the profile pic is pretty prominent in some search results based on location (Local SEO) so I wanted to include some instant visual contact info.

Second: list all the things I need to do and decide what's NOT going to get done today lol

On point some days. Some days not-so-much. Kinda like real life lol.

...except I don't think years of SEO experience blink on and off like this highly competitive keyword does!

Deleting files or any webserver task on GoDaddy are still more clumsy than other hosting companies. Sadly most of their customers, like me when I used them for hosting years ago...will never know any better.
