Hey guys.

I was looking into my interlinks today. And I noticed a lot of irrelevant interlinks on my posts according to GSC.

When I checked for those pages I noticed that every page have 2 interlinks at the end of the content that says "next article is: Name of the next article" and the same for the previous article. That's just how my WP theme works.

Most of the time, those links are pointing to the pages that are not relevant to the content. Does Google know that this are not "real" interlinks or do I have to do something about it? And if I do, is there some plugin for it or will I have to do some changes in the code? Thanks.

One email - 2 lists. Here is my question :

I am doing a promo with another entrepreneur and I want to have my audience opt into both our email lists in exchange for a free giveaway. How would I set that up? I dont want to have them add their emails to two forms on the page. Do you all know of any plug and play resources that would help do this?

I don't think Google is making any assumptions and is likely looking at those as internal links, especially if you're seeing them in GSC. To be honest it reminded me to remove them from one of my sites. I'm assuming you're on wordpress. If so, don't add a plugin. You don't need any more bloat. Make sure you're using a child theme and find your content-single.php file. Look for it in the code, it might vary from theme to theme but I just commented out the two lines below where the content appears.

Do you have any tips for asking for further product information? I mailed some companies and also got into touch via Facebook, but got very few responses. I need some extra information for a product comparison table, and some companies have very barren product descriptions.


If you find yourself in that spot, how do you maneuver? Because I feel like I am not doing it right. I just upfront told them what I am doing and that their information would be appreciated. Do I just have to be more patient?

I have been waiting for responses for a little shy of 4 days now. Can't take that long?

Yeah, the music industry is one of the most venemous and bot driven "claimers" on YouTube. They'll claim videos with titles that are the same as a song without even checking if the song is in the video. Song titles aren't even copyrightable. Google attempts to detect the usage too.
I suspect most of these channels are doing one of two things, much like you see all the bands and girls singing a million covers and then finally uploading some original material. One, they are piggy backing off of other popular stuff to get exposure to their original stuff, and then the DJ's will build up playlists and then take pay from marketing companies to include their artist's videos.
Thanks Ryuzaki. Doing more digging I found this quora post which explains a lot of it. So yea, if a band uploads a cover or a DJ uploads a remix the monetization is almost immediately assigned to the songwriter/artist. What the band/DJ can hope to get out of this is essentially brand exposure.

Although I suppose a DJ or band could get a mechanical license to use the song before they put it out there. I guess this is like any other web arbitrage where you hope your online monetization exceeds your licensing fees. (Anyone know better how this works?)

Some companies take about a week to reply to emails. Some get absolutely slammed with questions and have a constant backlog to chew through. I just shot off an email myself and don't expect to hear back at least until the middle of next week if not the end of it.

You can clear the rights to sample / remix and a portion of your revenue goes to the original owners to then be distributed to the songwriters / artist, all handled through companies like ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, etc. But this is assuming you're doing things professionally and not some guy at home informally trying to get it done. And even if you do it right you'll still have to battle Youtube algorithm claims and crap like that, prove for each song you got the rights, and then spend time battling claims and marks on your account even though you showed Youtube proof. All of that for some Youtube monetization is not remotely worth it. Much better to just get the exposure, if you ask me.

There are licensing companies now that have pre-cleared samples you can use, but they're not going to be wildly popular stuff. More like old Motown and songs most people have never heard.

is there an easy way to find as many of the medium domain authority sites in a specific niche as I can. For example, say my niche is "memes" and I want to know all the medium sized meme sites that still get traffic from Google, but not the really big guns like KnowYourMeme. How do I go about finding those DA 25-50 range sites?

Probably the easiest is Scrapebox. You won't even need proxies if you randomize the scrape time and set it to a single thread with slow search times. Enter keywords and let it go in the background. When it's done, you can de-dupe the list and check metrics, then filter by the metric ranges you want. The only thing easier than scraping this yourself is paying someone else to do it.

Sending a 301 to a reddit post that has a link to my site?

I'm thinking of sending a really high end 301 to a reddit post that will link to my site.

Do you guys think this will have a positive effect in serps on a site 2 months old?

Can anyone tell me how many backlinks I need to rank first for "payday loans"? :neutral:
Not that many, you just need more relevant, more aged, and more pagerank juiced ones than your competitors. If your competitor has 1,000 relevant backlinks, you need 1,001+ that are relevant, powerful and send more pagerank juice.

It’s not difficult knowing how.

(I know some of your guys are extremely slow and are going to complain that pagerank is gone - it is not, it is hidden from public, there are nearly equivalent metrics like moz DA/PA, ahrefs, majestic, and semrush which you can gather into a spreadsheet and make educated guesses on which competitors are the most powerful. I can’t even believe I have to write this disclaimer in 2019.)

Never hired a linkbuilder before, but thinking about contracting somebody to do some daily link outreach. Not PBNs or blog comments or sketchy sites or link trades, but yes on things like guest posts, broken link building, generally clever strategies. i've done this for my sites on my own, never hired for it.

how do I go about finding somebody good and reliable? How is payment structured? per link? hourly? fixed fee? How much should I expect to be paying? Looked at some agencies that charge an arm and a leg

Realistically, I'd be fine with a few solid, successfully placed links per day. Am I even thinking about this the right way?
