Case Study: Ranking YouTube Videos – A Year Later (Part 11)

post-icon-youtubeWell, it’s been a year since writing part 10. I had some things go on and got sidetracked unfortunately in a different direction. However, instead of wrapping up, I’m going to try to regroup and continue on. In the last part, we did a simple stats check.

Case Study: Ranking YouTube Videos – Stats Check (Part 10)

The 2nd Fiverr gig submission gave the video an extra 8,000+ views and 50 likes. After a couple days, the video jumped back up to the 14th position and lingered around there for 4 days. In part 10 of this case study, we’re going to do another stats check on the video to see if it jumped higher within the YouTube rankings and cracked the top 500 of Google for our lone keyword.

GSA SER Tutorial: Use Multiple RSS Feeds For Project URLs

GSA SERA couple months back, I went over using an RSS feed for project URLs in GSA SER. This is useful when you want to do deep linking to a site that is constantly being updated with new posts. GSA SER will parse the RSS feed and choose a random post/link from the feed. Recently, I wanted to use multiple RSS feeds for a SER project. I had multiple Tumblr blogs that I wanted to build backlinks to. It was a bit tricky, so I decided to write this brief tutorial to help.
