Mark Zuckerberg planning for own Artificial Assistant in 2016

Google Updates

Beginner

CEO-Facebook Mark Zuckeberg shared his dream to build an assistant, who can do households work, recognize faces baby sitting with his own baby, and showing company data in the presentations when required. Every year Mark Zukerberg takes a new challenge and this year he is working on his own artificial intelligence project, by building an assistant for user through the Messenger App. Every year, I take on a personal challenge to learn new things and grow outside my work at Facebook. My challenges in recent years have been to read two books every month, learn Mandarin and meet a new person every day. My personal challenge for 2016 is to build a simple AI to run my home and help me with my work. You can think of it kind of like Jarvis in Iron Man. Im going to start by exploring what technology is already out there. Then Ill start teaching it to understand my voice to control everything in our home -- music, lights, temperature and so on. Ill teach it to let friends in by looking at their faces when they ring the doorbell. Ill teach it to let me know if anything is going on in Maxs room that I need to check on when Im not with her. On the work side, itll help me visualize data in VR to help me build better services and lead my organizations more effectively. Every challenge has a theme, and this years theme is invention. At Facebook I spend a lot of time working with engineers to build new things. Some of the most rewarding work involves getting deep into the details of technical projects. I do this with Internet.org when we discuss the physics of building solar-powered planes and satellites to beam down internet access. I do this with Oculus when we get into the details of the controllers or the software were designing. I do this with Messenger when we discuss our AI to answer any question you have. But its a different kind of rewarding to build things yourself, so this year my personal challenge is to do that. This should be a fun intellectual challenge to code this for myself. Im looking forward to sharing what I learn over the course of the year.

  • Sticking with your contacts when a client is on board you have set some services for which you get paid under the contract. When you board a client you always keep the expectations of the client on a higher note. but it is your job to caters those services, sometimes there are scenarios like, we settle on a number of things initially and later on we realized that we are not getting response from those, so we should increase our expertise to achieve the response, be that things are not laid down in the contract.

  • You think you know, what you don't know in actual. SEO is the ever learning field. you can not have enough of this.

    Best Email Marketing Strategies to Generate Leads

    By CTCDC.in | Tuesday, June 25, 2019

    E-mail Marketing

    Beginner

    “It is up to 75% Off today!”, “Last Few Hours! Hurry”, “Dont Miss The Golden Opportunity of Studying Abroad!”. Were all at some point of time or another have been pestered by these phrases in our inboxes. They either succeed in tempting our curiosity or they fail and go straight to the spam box or trash (which is hell for all the emails). But these sneaky little cockroaches, called Promotional Emails, do their job well. They creep into our inboxes and alter our views and opinions. Thuswise, they are considered the best marketing technique in Digital Marketing.
    The process of circulating Promotional Emails with the aim of advertising products or services is called email marketing. It is mainly done to generate mass demands for the item advertised. Its like a modern silk route but with comparatively more merchants and customers, but less sluggishness.
    According to Radicati, around 4.4 billion email accounts were registered in 2018. Thats more traffic than the silk route can handle. Another study by the same group claims that around 205 billion emails are sent every day. This figure is probably greater than the number of people who have never even stepped on the silk route. And this is why email marketing becomes a crucial part of digital marketing.
    But its one thing to write emails and another to make a great call to action. It requires great in-depth knowledge of certain things to make your emails successful. In this guide, well discuss the same thing with the help of a few email marketing examples that are consistently used by email marketing companies for lead generation.
    You must consider the following things before you venture forth to construct a promotional email:

    Know The Promoted Item

    how-to-generate-leads

    If you have mediocre awareness about the product or service youre promoting, chances are you might end up writing an erroneous description and inaccurate benefits of the promoted products or services. Know the material youre promoting from top to bottom. This will help you avoid the embarrassment of correcting yourself later.

    Know The Offers Available

    If you have all knowledge about the offers that are accompanying the promoted product or service, you will be able to make your content look more enticing to the recipient. Similarly, if you keep your knowledge limited, then you can possibly commit a mistake.

    Know Your Audience

    lead-generation-strategies

    An important part of email marketing is to recognize the audience that youre going to target. By doing so, youll have a clear idea of what you need to write and what you need to avoid writing. For example: If youre promoting a luxury car, you wont write keeping in mind that the readers of your content will be from the middle class. They might be your readers but theyll never help in lead generation. Youll definitely mark the moneyed class for that purpose. Keep in mind the age, gender, class, salary, and background of the audience while writing a promotional email.

    Tips For Writing Effective Promotional Emails

    Well look through the best email marketing strategies thatll make you excel in creating promotional emails and avoid using expensive email marketing services. Follow the mentioned tips, and youll surely shine in the domain of email marketing:

    Relate To Your Audience

    lead-generation-through-email-marketing

    If you want to attract the target audience, then you must become the target audience. You must research your audience and observe their preferences and their problems. This will create a good call to action as youll be persuading your readers at a pathological level. But never write content to your audience on a personal tier, keep your content general and write it like a professional.

    Send The Email As a Person

    By doing so, youre evading the chances of your email being thrown into the trash bin. Reaching the recipient in person will increase the probability of the email being opened and actually being read as nobody wants to read an email from a machine.

    Introduce Offers

    You must enlighten the reader about all the offers available for the promoted product or service. Giving them information about concessions and privileges will increase the chances of lead generation. But be careful not to exaggerate any offer, as it might not prove mutually beneficial to both the parties involved.

    Informative Emails Works Too

    Providing information about the industry and the developments happening in it plainly arouses the readers curiosity in the field and makes a great call to action.

    lead-generation-email-example

    Write More Benefits Than Characteristics

    It is clearly evident that a normal reader will be attracted to the benefits offered by the product or service than its features.

    email-lead-generation-techniques

    Use Rhetorics

    Rhetoric is a significant gift from Aristotle. This can mainly be defined as the art of persuasion. While writing an effective promotional email you must not write it as your normal day-to-day conversations but use rhetorical language to induce your reader into actually making an inquiry about the promoted item. This can be done by appealing to the audiences emotions (ethos), by persuading the audience on a personal level (pathos) or by using logical explanation to alter the readers beliefs. The rhetorics are commonly used by email marketing services and companies. Use attractive and appealing words. Make promising statements such as: “Get SEO training within 4 months with our Active Learning Programs and achieve the mastery that you always desired.”

    Dont Use No-reply in Your Email

    It demotivates the reader. When you keep the space for replies, you are tempting the reader to make inquiries. If you leave this space limited, then youre restricting your potential customer into ignorance. It is obvious that another contact address will be given to the recipient but still, a reader will brand a No-reply in an email as spam.

    Use Formal Language

    According to a study, 80% of targeted recipients found informal language such as the use of emojis, lack of subject line, grammatical or spelling errors, etc. as unacceptable in emails. So, avoid using emojis in your emails and always add an attractive subject line. Dont use special characters in your content, not until necessary and escape the use of capital letters to emphasize something.

    Dont Scare The Reader

    Pessimistic lines are frequently used by email marketing companies to scare the readers into using their product or service. But this tactic does have negative effects on the reader. Sentences like: “Your chance to grow your career mastering the most demanded skill of the year or live a freelancer life ends tonight.” do work well but in the long run, they dissuade the readers and make them ponder over their life choices. Try not to make them depressed after they finish reading your email. Adopt a neutral tone for your email.

    Write. Proofread. Repeat

    Proofreading is an important process of writing an effective email. You must mark out mistakes in your emails and rectify them or else theyll damage your toils. Grammatical and spelling errors creep in your work regardless of your cautiousness.
    If youre low on time then you can install Grammarly to correct mistakes, but it is not a foolproof method to proofreading as some corrections sometimes create nonsensical sentences. Remember to revise your content after any type of correction.

    Add a Professional Signature

    Adding a professional signature marks a professional touch to your emails. It builds goodwill for your emails.
    This is all we had in our magic bag, utilize the given information correctly and you will surely succeed.

    A Look Through The Realm of Pay-Per-Click Marketing

    Pay-Per-Click (PPC) or Cost-Per-Click (CPC) marketing is an online method of advertising that advertisers employ to promote their products or services. This method follows a format in which the advertiser pays every time an ad is clicked. You must have noticed the sponsored items that come embedded at the top of the page when you search for something you need. Well, those are christened by the name of PPC ads.

    pay-per-click-sites

    The advertisers who use this method believe that SEO is for pensioned grandmas [Just kidding SEO is important. Apply for the SEO training course here] so they buy the top ranking for a searched keyword on a search engine. This ranking is bought on behalf of the keywords related to the promoted material. Nowadays, many companies pay top-dollar for their product or service to show at the top of the page. This soaring high demand is what caused the invention of Bid-based PPC. Bid-based PPC is a system of allotting a PPC advertisement to the highest bidder of bidded keywords. Advertising systems such as Google Ads , choose the advertisers on the basis of relevancy, popularity, and user-friendliness. And according to these factors, they allot the advertisers with appropriate ad spaces. The arch-nemesis of Bid-based PPC is Flat-rate PPC which follows the traditional advertiser-publisher agreement of a fixed rate amount for the publishment of an ad. But for now, lets focus on the benefits of PPC.

    PPC and the Searchers - Searchers are lazy. No offense, but they do not want to exercise their fingers to scroll down a page. What they see on the top of the search result page, they click. To go down is a guilty folly for them from which they think they will never recover. And to go to the next page is an act by a desperate being. So, PPC then becomes a catalyst to the sloth of the searcher.
    PPC and the advertisers - They are easily making their product or service rank at the top of the search results page. They do not need to hire pensioned grandmas (SEO experts) to make that attempt. So, they are happy.
    PPC and the Search Engines - They are getting paid. We never saw anyone being unsatisfied for being paid. They are also providing their customers with the top quality search results, So, they must be satisfied.

    Pay-Per-Click advertising can take the form of:

    • Expanded Texts Ads - These PPC ads are custom-tailored for mobile phones. They consist of a limit of 30 characters in headlines 1 and 2 with description limit up to 80 and path 1 and 2 limits set to 15 characters.
    • Product Listing Ads - These are advertisements that list a product along with its price and picture.

    • cost-per-click-formula

    • Image Ads - The name says it all. Image ads only feature the image of the product sponsored.

    Famous PPC Platforms

    Google Ads- It is probably the most famous advertising platform, celebrated by many companies for their advertisement use. Google Ads allows your ad to be posted on every Google property but follows an extensive system of choosing advertisers through Bid-based PPC system.
    It filters the best advertisements based on cookies or keywords provided by the company and assigns an appropriate space ad to the company. Every time an ad is clicked, Google receives a small sum from the advertisers, a ratio of which Google sends to the websites on which the ad is published.
    Microsoft Advertising - Similar to Google Ads, Microsoft Advertising offers all the Microsoft owned properties to advertisers. This includes Yahoo and Bing. Microsoft Advertising uses Bid-based system and determines the importance of an ad on the basis of its Click-Through-Rate (CTR).

    Technical PPC Tools

    Google Analytics - Google offers web analytics services through Google Analytics. The job of Google Analytics is to track and dispatch the information of traffic on your website. It is recommended that you use this tool if you are marketing through PPC advertisements, as it helps you track a visitor to your website and helps you differentiate between a customer and a visitor.
    Conversion Tracking- It is a free tool offered by Google to track your PPC advertisement performance. Conversion tracking is helpful in analyzing how a customer reacts to your ads, whether he or she clicks your ads, ignores them, signs up on your website, contacts your business and so on. This guides you in predicting the performance of your existing ads and build new ones on such basis.

    Determinants of a PPC Strategy

    Platform and Devices- These are important determining factors. The kind platform or device elected for the ads regulates the amount of traffic or clicks ads will earn. Mobile Phones, Computer/ Laptops and tablets are some devices where ads can be posted.
    Location- Location plays an important role in the success of a PPC ad. You must have the knowledge of the interest of people in different locations, for example, the majority of working people in Bangalore will be interested in technology, similarly, people in Ramnagar will be interested in tourism. So, prepare your PPC ads accordingly.
    Budget - This is the biggest enemy of an advertiser. It alters the overall objective and determines the quality of the ad. So, critique the budget carefully and use it efficiently.

    Making an effective PPC Strategy

    how-does-pay-per-click-work

    Decide Your Ad Group- When forming an advertising campaign decide your ad groups carefully. Ad Groups are subcategories or groups within a keyword. Brown recliner chair, white recliner chair, grey recliner chair, are some examples of Ad Groups.
    Decide Your Keywords- The relevancy of keywords holds paramount importance in PPC advertising. Choose keywords that have a broad sense or ambiguity as in such case more people will be able to see your ads. Avoid misspellings and shortened words.
    Decide Your Audience- You must research your audience. Categorize them as target audience based on the pages they visit, the amount of time spent on related pages and their frequency of visiting a relevant page.
    Following these three tips, you will achieve what any premium advertisers achieve in PPC.

You must have appropriate information about the pros and cons (if any) of your web page including its layout, design, and other instruments that become the major determinants of your web page’s ranking.

SEMrush and Keyword Spy are important tools that let you understand the structure of your competitor's webpage/s.

    Tips For Effective Web page Optimization

    search-engine-optimization-techniques

    • Optimizing Your URL- The URL is an unsung hero of an optimized web page. Keeping this in mind, It becomes important that your URL is short and easy to remember for its optimization.

      how-to-optimize-website-speed

      Try to categorize your URL, providing a hierarchy of Domain>category>page. The market is full of URL shortening tools like Bitly and Google URL shortener.

    • Optimize Your Web Page’s Title- Have you noticed the title of this blog? It begins with “How to”. This is how an average person searches his or her requirements on a search engine. In addition to that, your title must have keywords related to the content that you’re providing to the reader so that Google can rate your page accordingly. Similar to your URL, keep your title short. Your title will be seen on the search results page so write accordingly. Also, try to keep your description enticing to maintain a good Click-Through-Rate.

    • Optimize Your Content - Your content is of paramount importance for maintaining your ranking on the top. If your content is up-to-the-mark, nothing can stop your web page from ranking well.

You can provide both inbound and outbound linking in your content. Adding relevant keywords to relevant spaces is one technique that will lead you to the top of the search results page. If your content includes images then try to add keywords to the description of the image.

    • Optimize User Experience- Nothing demotivates users to visit your web page except a slow loading web page and an oversized advertisement. These are the mortal enemies of good user experience. If your web page is suffering from the same disease try to rectify it as soon as possible. Also, do not feed your users with false or plagiarised information. This only increases the user’s anger and augments your site’s spam score.

    • Keep Posting. Do not Stop.- Your content is like food for your website. If you stop posting more of it, then your website starves. Try to keep updating blogs, images, and infographics to your website. If you are providing the users with the links to your other web pages, then this will surely prove beneficial for your web page.

    • Invite Other Websites To Link You- This can be done by directly contacting the websites for business purposes and soliciting them to link your web page in their content. But it is expected of you that you’ll do the same for them. This will produce a healthy symbiotic relationship.

    • Keep Updating Your Sitemaps- Sitemaps are protocols that urge crawlers to crawl your page. This is an important part of effective optimization for your web page. Developing a sitemap on Schedule can allow your websites to rank well.

    Achieved Top Ranking
    Achieved Top Ranking? This Is How to Remain Number 1 on Google.

    By CTCDC.in | Thursday, July 4, 2019

    Ranking & Visibility

    Beginner

    Congratulations! You have made it to the top among the top ten champions of Google SERPs. But do you know how to remain a champion? The Google ranking factors keep on updating from time-to-time, so-much-so that the Google you’ll look at today and the one you’ll look at tomorrow will be totally different. Thanks to this, the ranking of a website on Google SERP (full form of SERP is Search Engine Results Page, thank you) is dynamic. Basically, Google follows teachings from Bhagavat Gita. It gives your top place to someone else and then throws that someone else to #40 making way for other websites. This behavior of Google is also largely motivated due to stiff competition for almost every keyword. Other factors for ranking includes a long list of “tips” provided by successful SEO specialists, who impart this information from experience. We do this here too.

    Long-term ranking on Google SERPs mainly depends upon user-friendliness and the relevancy of the website. Along with these, the rest of the factors have strings attached to them. What kind of strings? This is as good a mystery as the womenkind or Bermuda Triangle. To clear this mystery experts have resigned on using methods of charlatanerie which they named Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Among all the best SEO practices, the top ones include high-quality content, functional page design, the acceptable reputation of the company or person, accuracy of the information, and convenient and comfortable ad placements. Easy to achieve, right? Not in the long run!

    But Why The Top Ranking?

    If you’ve been sleeping under a rock or have chronic amnesia, you’ll find this question pertinent. Reports state that more than 60% of websites on all Google SERPs except the first, remains unclicked. The reason for this is that the searchers are only interested in fast result procurement. They will never go to the next page if they are acquiring the same data on the first page. The first position on any keyword related SERP, therefore, gains 79% more organic traffic as compared to other positions.

    3 Good Tips To Maintain Your Top Ranking

      how-to-improve-google-search-ranking

    • Do not use Black-Hat SEO- Black-Hat SEO techniques are good in the short run but it will not help you maintain a long term ranking. Black-Hat SEO techniques such as keyword stuffing and providing poor quality content is now recognizable to Google under its latest update. Upon finding any questionable material, Google will lower the ranking of your web page and the spam score of the site will automatically rise.

    how-to-write-a-blog-and-make-money-1

    This blog will focus on blogging for beginners and will ironically teach you how to start a blog and make money out of it. So, relax and read on!

    What Is A Blog?

    The word blog is a mishmash of the term weblog coined by Peter Merholz. The meaning of blog remains limited to a written piece of material which could be supplemented by images or videos and is updated within a short interval of time. Blogs in the past were tailor-made for personalized use, a feature which is still somewhat visible in present-day blogs writing style. But now, they follow a pattern to provide maximum information to the reader and aim at improving their knowledge or insight.
    Blogs hold a very important duty in the commercial world. Reports state that websites with a blog section have 434% more indexed pages than websites that do not keep a blog page. This makes blog writing and posting a very important part of Off-site SEO.

    Tips And Steps To Write A Blog

    Let us take a look at a few tips and steps of blog writing:
    1. Blog Title-There are mainly three types of blogs that come under the category of effective and famous blogs:

      1. The How-To Blog-If you are an average guy or gal (we donot judge but let us suppose it for an example), you will search the internet with a how-to tag.

        blog-writing-format


        This statistic is the manifestation of the popularity of a how-to tag. So, there are good odds that if you start the title of your blog with a how-to, yo will rank good on Google or Yahoo. Anyway, these blogs mainly focus on the procedure or technicality of the thing they are talking about.

      2. Infographic Blogs - These blogs mainly focus on providing information to the reader through graphical or image representation of statistical data (also known as infographics). These blogs are underrated as they usually have a very powerful readability ratio.

      3. free-blog-writing-sites-1


      4. List-based Blogs-You know these pestering little buggers. They are omnipresent in all of our Facebook feeds and are recognized by their quirky titles that always start with numbers: “9-ways to lose weight”, “5-tips to earn more money”, and what-not. However, they are common only because they are effective.

    2. Blog Writing Format-There is no format of writing a blog. People usually stick to their discretion and use whatever style they prefer. But in order to write a popular blog, you must ensure that your content has an introduction, a body and a conclusion. Try to insert pictures or videos in your blog. It will increase your chance of being read by 94%. And here is a common disease in blog writing: beginners, as well as professional bloggers, usually get writer block while writing an introduction. And heres a tip to solve the same. You can always start your blog with a relatable statement. For example, look at this blog introduction sample:
      how-to-start-a-blog-for-free

      Or you can also start by informing your readers about the history of the topic you are writing about. Here is another blog introduction sample you can take as an example:
      blog-writing-examples


      There are a thousand ways through which you can start your blog but these remain the most famous and most effective ones (refer to point 2). Remember your introduction will define your blog and your readership.

    3. Fill Your Blog With Stats- Another way of starting your blog is to provide statistics related to the topic you are talking about. You must have noticed numerous examples of statistical content in my blog. These factual descriptions blow the mind of your readers (not literally though) and make your blog an interesting read. However, try not to overfill your content with numbers as nobody would like to read mathematical equations.

    4. Relevancy -For the love of God or whatever you believe in, try to stick to your topic. This determines the quality of your blog. Make continuous attempts to reduce any irrelevancy in your content. One way of ensuring this is to exhort your friends or family to read your unpublished blog and ask them to rate the relevancy in it.

    5. Follow The 5Cs-
      how-to-write-a-blog-and-make-money


      1. Clarity-Keep a clear mind of what you need to write about. Provide headings for specific contents to prevent your reader brain becoming tangled.

      2. Conciseness- Donot try to keep your blog unnecessary long. However, there is no word-limit for writing a blog. But nobody will read an encyclopedia.

      3. Completeness- Complete your blog by concluding in the end or by providing all the relevant information about the topic you are writing about. Donot leave it for tomorrow or else you may never complete it. Confession: I have been writing this blog for three days now. Donot be like me.

      4. Correctness-Exaggeration is a bigger sin than understatement. Donot just makeup information out of thin air. Research your content and try to obtain your stats from a reliable source. You can also validate your data from sites like factcheck.org or snopes.com.

      5. Courtesy- Try to respect the views of other people or organizations while writing your blog. Donot post outrageous content on the internet or you will gain a fan-following of dangerous stalkers.

    6. Do not Go Full Stream-Of-Conscience Blogger- It is okay to experiment once in a while but readers hate anything that they can not understand. Remember that the audience walked out of Stanley Kubricks 2001: A Space Odyssey only because they were not simply able to comprehend it. Today the movie is, of course, considered a masterpiece but your blog might not achieve that glory. So, try to keep an understandable and relevant format and use comprehensible words because then again however much you try, you cannot become Stanley Kubrick (Fact-check this on snopes.com).

    7. Add a Call-To-Action- Inserting a call-to-action ensures that your subscribed readers are notified of your new blog post. A CTA also allows new readers to subscribe to you. This ensures a massive readership for your blog.

    8. Proofread-This is an important part of writing a blog even though it does not constitute any writing. It revolves around editing. Keep on revising your blog and refining it. It will minimize the mistakes present in it.

    How To Start A Blog: In a Few Easy Steps

    Follow these steps to start a blog that is popular as well as effective. If you are writing on behalf of a group or an organization you might not require to follow these steps. The topics will be provided to you along with the domain and research material. However, you can take reference from below for other reasons:

    free-blog-writing-sites


    1. Decide Your Blog-Well I hope this step does not require much explanation. Anyway, you must keep a clear pathway of what your blogs are going to be related with. Having a roadmap allows you to tread on the right path and prevents you from getting lost. Pick the topics you will be talking about on a daily basis such as personal health, economy, SEO, Content Marketing or freelancing. If the domain name of your blog site is animalsforever.com and all of a sudden you start blogging about chicken barbecue recipes, your audience will get effective, negatively most probably. Which also brings us to the second step.When you are writing on behalf of a corporate.

    2. Decide Your Audience-Learning from the barbeque example, you must decide your audience carefully. You can target them on the basis of their age, gender, race, color, nationality, the color of their hair, the length of their toenail, their walking style, etc. Blogs have an enormous reach, so innumerable topics can be addressed to innumerable issues. After targeting them you must understand their liking and disliking. One way to do this is to conduct a survey or create a feedback box on the blog site that you are going to create in the next step.

    3. Create Your Blog/ Choose a domain-Now this is the hard part. You will need to choose a Content Management System (CMS) and a website domain hosting service. A Content Management System assists you in creating a website domain where you can publish your blogs. The CMS provides you a platform where you can sign up to manage domains, create your own website; and subdomains, and create a web page that links to an already existing website.
      A popular option is to use WordPress to perform the necessary action and create a domain name for your website. You can also register your domain on the following websites after paying a meager amount of money:

      • HostGator
      • iPage
      • GoDaddy
      • DreamHost
      • Bluehost

      These websites instructs you in creating a blog site for your blogs. And kaboom! You have your own blog page.

    4. Customize Your Blog Page-A blog page must be visually enticing. Use an attractive color to optimize your blog page. Try not to use anything that is painful for the eye and restricts readability. Now you can write blogs and publish them using the tips and tricks that were mentioned above.

    5. Promote Your Blog-We always recommend using keywords in your content to make your blog rank higher. You can install keyword everywhere for this reason and research accordingly. Try to promote your blog on Social media sites and your readership will definitely increase. You can also use email marketing for the same reason.

    How To Write A Blog And Make Money

    After creating the blog and promoting it, make money by monetizing your blog site. You can sell your website space to advertisers who pay a good ratio of the revenue they gain by advertising on your web site. Once your blog becomes popular (which it will), you will have advertisers revolving around you for an opportunity to advertise. Google Ads becomes a champion under these circumstances. This advertising platform helps you choose the best and most profitable ads for your blog. All you need to do is login and Google Ads will instruct you the rest. So, see you at the top!

    Keyword Research: furnish negative keywords

    Using negative keyword is always a big challenge for PPC experts, because of two problems: Using them at the wrong place and as a consequence losing traffic. Not using them at the right place where you should use. The first one is the most common mistake. Let us understand this through an example, consider you have not sold mountain bikes for years and had the name of mountain bikes in the negative list, then you started selling them.
    But your PPC expert forgot to remove that word from your negative list, the consequence will be “not getting any traffic” on that keyword. For avoiding such situation, regularly check your negative keyword list and bring those keywords back to life which has relevance. The second situation is not ignorable(way to reduce CPC) and is challenging. Let us consider you sell mountain bike, road bike, BMX bike and so on than using broad or modified broad match may cause trouble when google will show relevant ads(with 2 ads of yours) regarding user query. The trouble will be, increasing CPC when your ads start competing with each other. For this issue, you can add the word into a negative keyword list whosoever is causing trouble/unnecessary competition. Though this method will only work for comparatively small keyword lists. With dozens of product categories, it will be big trouble, for this one must look for the realm of PPC.

    Device Targeting: Merge Mobile to Your Campaigns

    Some of the impressive stats from Google studies state when required to search something 69% of users turn to a mobile device, and within it, 76% search for nearby business, 28% of these daily searches end in purchases. For any PPC specialist, mobile campaigns have brought new opportunities and of course new challenges. As an advertiser, you cannot treat mobile users the same as a desktop user. Along with a mobile-optimized website, you also need to modify Ad copy to micro-moments. Let’s look at how it can be done: searching for “digital marketing institute” on a desktop can mean someone is looking for later on appointment.
    But the “digital marketing institute” searched from mobile may mean, the person may be more serious to go to an institute. The most searches made from mobile are made with “strong intentions”(to buy the product/service). These are known as micro-moments, micro-moments can be subdivided into four categories:

    • I want to know a moment
    • I want to go a moment
    • I want to do a moment
    • I want to buy a moment
    And understanding this micro-moment of limited time, screen space and speed of the internet can help you express what you need to in your ad copy. So be very certain & determined in case of your mobile audience.

    In-market audiences

    Simply a fun & creative game for advertisers focused on converting regular visitors into likely buyers. An in-marketing audience can be used in various ways such as target options for display campaigns or bid modifiers for search engines. Similar to GDN marketing it is used for targeting audience who are in “buy-now” mode and extensively interested in product or service.

    Mobile SEO

    Beginner

    Mobile marketing is the unsung technique of marketing that still remains under the cloaked blanket of major disuse. Only a few have noticed its brilliance and have utilized this form of digital marketing to generate leads as well as sales. But do you know that mobile marketing strategies can also be harvested as an effective SEO technique?
    Search Engine Optimization is the main priority of any online business. However, many businesses undermine the fact that there are about 5.11 billion (with a “B”) mobile users all around the globe and focus on other digital marketing strategies such as Email Marketing, Social Media Marketing, Search Engine Marketing, and many more. Mobile phones too are a very effective medium for marketing and believe me all the search engines think the same.

    What Is Mobile Marketing?

    mobile-marketing-applications


    The term “Mobile Marketing” is very much self-explanatory, but still you’ll get a definition free with this blog. Mobile marketing is a branch of digital marketing that focuses online marketing on smartphones and tablets. Mobile marketing resorts to the circulation of e-mail, SMS and MMS, social media info, or mobile applications on mobile devices to generate sales.

    Benefits Of Mobile Marketing

    If you really need to know the benefits of mobile marketing then you should get out of the rock under which you sleep and interact with the actual world. Of course mobile marketing has a plethora of benefits since the amount of users of this device exceeds the total number of internet consumers which is 3.2 billion. And a complimentary fun-fact: The overall population of the world is 7.3 billion. The reach of mobile phones, then becomes, extraordinarily extensive.
    People actually care about their devices. They look at their notifications, organize their data, and remain updated with news. This makes marketing on mobile phones enormously advantageous for generating sales.

    How To Do Mobile Marketing Effectively To Perform SEO

    Take a look at the following points and create your mobile marketing strategy accordingly to perform SEO:

    mobile-phone-marketing-strategy


    1. Make Your Website Mobile Friendly Reports claim that almost 8% of traffic on any site is from mobile devices. If your website is not mobile friendly and have irksome bugs and screen-covering banners when your site is opened on a mobile device, then you quickly need to make your site mobile-friendly. In fact, stop reading this and Get up now and do it. It’s a really easy task. All you need to do is login on WordPress and download WPtouch and follow the provided instructions to make your site compatible with mobile devices. Then see that traffic soar up high.
    2. Post Mobile Friendly ContentIdentically to the first point, you need to make sure that your site’s content is both for the mobile as well as desktop users. Make sure that the content is visible on the smallest screen that the mobile world has to offer. You must ensure that the content offers not only visibility but also quality as it is easier to share data and information on mobile phones.
    3. Use Text Messages You will find it easy to believe when we’ll claim that 58% of mobile users check their smartphones every hour. Why do we find it easy to believe? Because we’ve got eyes to observe people around us spend lifetimes on their mobile devices, clicking pictures of what they are about to eat.
      SMS, in this case becomes a very good medium to get your product, service or brand acknowledged. This does not come under SEO but it is a good way to increase traffic to your site as links can be given in an SMS to redirect the customer.>
    4. Decrease Loading Speed On Mobiles When it comes to searching on the internet, the users become very impatient. They tend to avoid sites that take an eternity of internet time to load (which is limited to 15 seconds). Since many users use their mobile phones to conduct queries and searches, it becomes a good SEO strategy to decrease the loading speed of your site’s pages.
    5. Avoid blocking CSS, JavaScript, or images Ancient mobiles were unable to support these elements so designers thought to block these to optimize the site’s loading screen. But now we’re living in a modern age where mobiles support everything. So, maximize the mobile user experience, you must avoid blocking CSS, Java or images.

    Digital Marketing

    Beginner

    With the astounding enhancement of people’s interaction on different social media platforms such as Instagram, brands around the world are not sitting back but connecting with Social media Influencers such as “Instagram Influencer” for brand and sales promotion. As people nowadays before making the decision of buying any product or service( of any brand) look towards their favorite social media influencer “what they have to say about the BRAND”. That’s a good thing for young entrepreneurs, as they can connect different Social Media Influencers to Promote whatever the product or service they provide.
    Especially, within the case of Instagram, brands or young entrepreneurs can attain the goals they desire, just by connecting the right Instagram Influencer. They don’t need to worry if they are beginners because here I share with you Instagram Influencer Marketing: The Ultimate Guide for Beginners.
    But before joining hands with any Instagram Influencer, there are things that young entrepreneurs or brands should keep in mind. As with increasing demand for Instagram Influencer marketer, FAKE influencers are also entering and looting their clients. All of this is happening because more than 63% of marketers work with more than 10 influencers and marketers have estimated Instagram Influencer Industry worth $ 5 billion to $ 10 billion by 2020. Some tips that will assist you to recognize Fake Influencers and shortlist true Instagram Influencer.

    fake-instagram-likes


    Identify Fake Influencer account on Instagram

    1. An Unclear, incomplete profile always remembers to look out the ‘influencer profile’, it will tell you many things. Most fake Instagram influencer profiles will not have bio except emojis or have a fake-sounding email or do not have what true influencers posses such as email, and other information, which makes a credible profile, or verified profile. Apart from that, you can look out if they are limited to one social media platform. If they are then its sign of fake influencer because of most influencer work on many social media platforms.
    2. Followers with an unusual username and stock photo influencers who are fake generally buy followers from a different internet source to lure innocent clients. These different source overflow bots and spam profiles in fake influencer accounts to increase follower counts. If you see stock photos and unusual/spammy username, just turn your back. Interested young entrepreneurs, who want to promote their brand /service to grasp deep knowledge about SMM can just enroll themselves in Social Media Marketing Course. Though you cannot be sure to enlist an influencer “fake” having a few spam followers but a good way to start shortlisting the best influencer.
    3. Unreasonable Engagement Rates Fake influencer will not work hard to build a loyal follower base but try to find shortcuts to land a deal with big brands. Engagement rate refers to the percentage of likes, comments, and shares in relation to followers count. Marketers state the percentage of likes falls between 1% to 5% of the followers of an account. If you see unusual engagement rates, then turn your back because it takes a lot of hard work and time to get a good amount of engagements.
      One smart way to check, look for accounts who are in a hurry to like and comment the moment post went live, look that if they are following influencer you are engaged with. If they are not, then you are certainly dealing with a fake influencer because it's very unlikely to get 50%+ like and comment in the first 15 minutes and that too from accounts not following “influencer”.
    4. Generic Comments on most posts one more way is to look down in the comment section of earlier posts by an influencer. If it doesn’t look content specific to you then surely its fake. Most fake influencer post will consist of generic or repeated comments from followers such ‘great picture’ or ‘nice picture’

      fake-instagram-followers-check


      Apart from that real influencer will never miss out on the chance to interact with its followers.
    5. Sudden enhancement in followers or engagement Getting engagement organically takes a lot of time and hard work, that why to beware of influencers who got a good amount of followers overnight. This sudden enhancement in followers count shows the influencer profile is not authentic. Well, not saying that this a hard and fast rule. There are cases, where people are getting a million followers overnight that doesn’t mean they have a fake profile. It can be the effect of any video or post going viral. You just need to look for tools like Social Blade, which give you historical data of influencer like this:

      Building a fake influencer profile on Instagram is easy, all these scammers do is buy followers and create their profile in such a way that it will look real to anyone but they cannot thug you. If you know how to grasp the right and not the fake influencer.

    What else can you do to figure out the fake or true influencer AND not being scammed

    • Ask them about the past campaigns they did for others and if they procrastinate it, don’t go any further. And if they tell you, then you can review it and choose the best.
    • Always ask for actual examples, what do you think if someone faked their profile will they stop at lying you about their past. Don’t get lazy when reviewing Instagram Influencer past projects.

    Forecasting ROI of SEO
    Forecasting ROI of SEO

    By CTCDC.in | Wednesday, July 17, 2019

    Digital Marketing

    Beginner

    Most of the time SEO expert says, predicting ROI of SEO is a risky move. But SEOs also say that after acquiring enough data, they can forecast a realistic projection. So our SEO experts have shared some tips on forecasting ROI of SEO, The key factor that Digital Marketing trainers/experts in Delhi suggest is gathering quality and relative data you need for projections.

    How can an SEO expert forecast the ROI through SEO efforts?

    Digital Marketing experts in Delhi say that SEO geeks are technique focused, which means they tend to check their ranking daily and also see big drops in it. What they don’t see is the main thing- it is about “the amount of business you lose”. Nowadays experts are focusing on Google updates and how they are impacting e-commerce websites. Looking at data, digital marketing experts in Delhi found out a drop in organic traffic in the rankings but the money they make has no difference.
    All that changed was the loss of some traffic, it doesn’t matter much because business is still the same. As SEOs work too deep with SEO techniques (though they are essential) they don’t think about “money business is making”. They need to widen their thinking because“business goals” are much bigger than just random metrics and marketing.

    Marketers view at Identifying ways of seeing “ROI of SEO”?

    The basic thing, you readers need to understand all websites are not equally born, they have different popularity, address different topics, and possess different sizes on the web. It means the behavior of Google will be different on different websites. So to point in the right direction, Fresher must get started with SEO training and SEO experts must know that Google uses zillions of server to crawl the webpage(costs money to do that). Getting in the right direction will help you recognize “how to optimize your webpage” & “ranking factors” matters most to your website for better ranking on SERPs and ROI.

    Other factors people should pay attention to?

    seo-roi


    For having a better click-through rate, people can optimize their product pages with “structured data”. As this has benefited people with terrific results optimizing in the past.

    Adding structured data(this kind of schema) is appreciated by Google. And websites with structured data gain way better click-through-rates than others. In my knowledge, we should focus on what occurring on schema.org to rank the same way, to be shown up int the same way or to get the same click-through rates.

    For SEOs, they must know, what is their business and what’s their core metric. An E-Commerce player core metric is average order per value or daily revenue/monthly revenue per product page, Online media’s core metric is revenue per visit. With an unlocked feature on OnCrawl called segmentation, with any metric(monthly revenue per product page) you can map your website(page depth levels). It means you can check the revenue-generating page with deep architecture or its closeness to the homepage. It can help you recognize if they are getting enough internal popularity(they must get) or if there is something wrong or not.

    The main thing is about doing S.W.O.T analysis of business, collect SEO data, understand your website type. And then merge SEO data with business techniques to get realistic predictions of your results. You can prioritize things by merging log data with crawl data or go for a test-and-learn approach. With all of this combine you can easily analyze what ranking factors are working for your website, the amount of traffic you are getting or how to achieve top ranking.

    When you can work on some projects, you can just follow the above information to provide better results to your clients or customers for good ROI. apart from that, for more information, you can read below blogs.

    If you’re a business owner, you might have encountered certain limitations on your day-to-day Digital Marketing tasks. You might have found optimizing your website’s ranking on search engines (or simply called Search Engine Optimization in digital marketing language) excruciatingly difficult. Similarly, doing promotions on social media (or Social Media Marketing) would seem to you very time consuming and writing content (A.K.A Content Marketing) would look to you tailor-made for specialists. Now under these circumstances, I deduce, you would resort to hiring a digital marketing expert, a digital marketing agency or a freelance digital marketer to do all the hard work for you. Of course, they are professionals and have a teaspoon more of time and expertise in these areas than you do, but before opting for anyone, let’s take a look at the following cons of hiring any of these:

    • Expense- These demanding creatures come at an expense that will make your wallets empty and your stress meter full.
    • Conflict Of Interests -Digital Marketing experts require constant surveillance or else they’ll mess up your website or bring in the wrong kind of traffic to your website. You’ll need to ask frequent reports from them and guide them through what you need on your website and what you do not.
    • Long-Term Digital Marketing Strategy - In addition to all this, if your digital marketing strategy is of short-term, then you’ll have to bear with them forever. If you hire them, you can’t fire them. Not at least within a short space of time or without a valid reason.


    Digital Marketing Agency

    Similar to Digital Marketing experts, Digital Marketing agencies pose many problems:
    • Unaffordable Lust for money runs within the veins of a digital marketing company. They seldom overcharge their customers and undermine the quality of work.
    • No Speed Control -You will never know what goes on in their offices. They could take your money and party with it. Even if you give them a certain time limit or a due date to finish a project, they make no promise of keeping the assigned work time-bounded.
    • Different Clients, Different Priorities - Digital Marketing companies are like cheating partners, they pretend to love what you’re doing when you’re with them but change their preferences as soon as you leave their office.


    Freelance Digital Marketer

    • Constant Absence Freelance Digital Marketer come at an inexpensive rate, but you gotta make sure that they do come.
    • Priorities Vs Clients Comparable to Digital Marketing agencies, freelance digital marketers rate their priorities on the basis of pay scale. Their priorities also change according to their interests.
    • Need For Speed - Reports claim that freelance digital marketers are the slowest workers in the world. Slower than your grandma knitting a sweater. At least she finishes it by Christmas.

We’ll recommend choosing a website, because then you can skip an additional step of creating a Firebase app as Google Analytics asks for Firebase app requirements to fulfill this step. Don’t worry, you won’t face any problem for choosing this step. But if you already have a Firebase app, then opt for mobile apps option.
    Now, you’ll have to fill the required information of your react native app. After fulfilling this step, you need to create a new view by clicking on the Admin menu. Now, click on Create View on the third column and select Mobile app and enter your app details.

    Local favorites and short URLs-

    all these above feature intent is to assist businesses brand to effectually encourage themselves on GMB and beyond. Apart from these GMB features, two additional essential announcements that are worthy and significant to hear:

    • Local Favorite badges-
      Local Favorite Badges(searchable on Google and in Maps)- According to Google, A “Local Favorite” badge will be awarded to the top 5% of local businesses in a category. Google said, businesses that will keep their profile updated and are responsive to customers will be rewarded but was insignificant with criteria to determine who qualifies. So let's see how “Local Favorite Status and badging” turns out to be competitive advantages for the winners or not. Mostly its performance will depend on consumer response or how and where the badge is presented.

    • Short names/URLs(searchable on Google and in Maps) & requires GMB verification-
      Two forms of short names are- g.page/short name and @shortname. From now on businesses can register their desired name. Also, businesses need to have a verified GMB profile because when the consumer will search or input the URL, it will able to lead directly to a merchant’s GMB profile. In the Coming future whenever a customer will search google maps for the “@shortname” business profile will come up. Google claimed it to be “a global namespace”, So this clearly brings out that SEO Service provider in India could be competing against SEO expert somewhere in the world, having a similar name. Well, Google didn’t go into detail but projected confidence to look at such issues and prevent such conflicts. Google report ended by stating, the desire for simple URLs to promote business and short names came out of merchant feedback but didn’t clear that if there will be any reporting regarding these short URLs/names.

    Conclusion

    GMB is an evolving local “engagement platform” turning out into something much more powerful and complex thing, benefiting both business and customers by increasingly enabling transactions(e.g., Reserve with Google) and have drawn mixed reviews from local SEOs. Google my Business has opened ways for more direct communication tools and additional commerce capabilities. And has also brought the challenge to google to not bring additional confusion and complexity for local businesses.

    reasons for ppc campaign failure
    Reasons for PPC Campaign failure

    Intermediate

    Why Reading "Successful PPC Campaign For 2019" Article is a waste if you don’t read and implement strategies with a determined goal. For having the highest- converting PPC campaign, persistence is necessary. When you will search “Successful PPC Campaign For 2019” you will get these results on the Search engine:
    Each of it will provide you the same or more information about “Successful PPC Campaign For 2019” and all of it is beneficiary if you want to learn and implement. What you will not get there is “why even after understanding PPC strategies you fail” to having the highest PPC converts. And why these guides only help a few people?
    The reason is not only they understand deeply “What is PPC?” but also know that optimizing PPC is not a noobie task, it takes time and a lot of effort to get a conversion, it is not a one day task. Along with it they also understand the reason behind the failure of the PPC campaign. So read carefully below given Reasons that will enrich your PPC knowledge and also help you broaden the lines between SEO, PPC, SEM.

    what-is-ppc


    THREE REASONS

    SEO experts say, There are 3 ways you make your business run through Digital Marketing; by being first, by being smarter or a cheater( As there is a difference between copying and adapting). Cheating may help you but is not beneficial for the long term. So what’s smart, may take longer but essential for success in PPC Campaign.

    PPC campaign failure

    how-does-pay-per-click-work


    Reason one:

    Being in a corporate world. I’ve realized the reason for most campaign failure is rushing or finding shortcuts. While working on a PPC campaign people must understand PPC campaign strategies takes time, so consulting with an affordable PPC expert is a smart step. You have to be the wolf, to have an online presence. Use your creativity while working on PPC strategies, as you may not require every PPC strategy for your successful PPC campaign. Collect relevant information and using it strategically will definitely help you in having a successful PPC campaign.

    Reason Two:

    The second common reason for PPC campaign failure is just blindly pouring data for PPC advertising here and there and not considering the customer’s journey. This may help you win a battle such as increasing of one-week conversion rate by 10% or more but don’t be fool enough, as you cannot win a war with this tactic.
    Start thinking strategically and not tactically. Here’ a little example:
    Go to page, people will go by clicking your ad. Think of action that people should take before having what they want. Either signing for something or whatever it is you want them to do. Try to Engage them on page with some activity, this must bring the visitor back to your page but don’t make visitor’s steps long enough in having what they want. Try to provide the service in shorter steps. Be sharp with your PPC strategy, always and forever to grab fruitful results.

    Reason Three:

    Not analyzing Ad copy correctly, and loosing in the PPC campaign. Considering your customer journey will guide you in writing better Ad copy. There is one golden rule that I said in the second reason that is considering your customer journey for having the step you want your visitors to take on your page. In modern PPC ads, you can play with a LOT of text to and sure you will write about ‘benefit of taking your service and about you’ but I am saying it again think of action customers should take and what that specific action will serve users? Hey, that’s all from my side, reading PPC related articles is beneficial but completely or blindly follow them. Use your own creativity and imagination to have your own unique way.

    Google Ads Vs Facebook Ads

    By CTCDC.in | Saturday, July 27, 2019

    Pay Per Click

    Beginner

    To prefer Google or prefer Facebook? That is the question. A billion dollar question (literally, check out both the companies’ revenues). The companies are arch-nemesis of each other. One administers the best search engine service while the other provides the best social media platform. Now the question arises (again) which is the best platform for marketing? Let’s analyze together.

    Which Is The Best Advertising Platform

    Google Ads and Facebook Business provide the most effective marketing stage for advertisers on the whole world wide web. But one must possess the knowledge of which one to use for what campaign. Google Ads allow you to display your advertisements on all the Google owned platforms.

    how-effective-is-google-adwords


    On the other hand, Facebook Business allows your ads to crawl into the feeds, right column, stories, marketplace, and in-stream video of different Facebook accounts.

    facebook-ads-manager


    A quick FYI: These ads do not concern free ads on Google or facebook. We have invented SEO for that.

    What Is Google Ads?

    This is the ultimate Google owned online advertising platform which was established in 2000 and has helped businesses around the world garner some major acknowledgment since then. Google Ads allow paid ads to accumulate on the search engine results pages and allow a range of price options for both small businesses as well as the big sharks. Google Ads accommodates a plethora of features and services:
    • Google Ads Keyword Planner
    • AdWords Express
    • Google Ads Editor
    • Google Ads Manager Accounts
    • Reach Planner
    • IP address exclusion
    • Google Partners
    • Google Ads extensions
    • Google Click-to-Call

    These features not only optimizes the user experience but also help the users understand and track their conversions.

    better-than-facebook-ads


    What Are Facebook Ads?

    Facebook ads, which is christened by the name of Facebook Business, is a Facebook owned feature that provides advertisers to market their products on one or all Facebook owned platforms.

    facebook-ads-platforms


    Through Facebook Ads Manager, you can track your advertisement and see it live on the platform you opted for it to be posted. Instagram is one such platform that benefits the advertiser enormously.

    Facebook Vs. Google Advertising Revenue

    Google Ads helped Google to earn a revenue of $39.92 billion last year, which contributes to 86% of its total revenue. On the other hand, Facebook, grossed $21 billion through its online advertising platform Facebook Business.

    Facebook Vs. Google Advertising Cost

    Facebook ads cost around $1.72 and allow your ads on Facebook in feed, right column, stories, and in-stream video, Facebook Messenger, and Instagram in feeds and stories. While the Google Ads pricing starts at $2.69 and provides ads placement options on Google and on search partners. The average click through rate of Google Ads is 3.17% and the average conversion rate is 3.75%. The Facebook offers 0.90% average CTR and 9.21% of average conversion rate.

    facebook-vs-google-advertising-revenue


    Facebook Vs. Google Advertising: When To Use Which

    Facebook is appropriate for advertising when you need to market your newly introduced product or service. It allows the viewer to know about the product even when he or she is not searching for it. On the other hand, Google ads are purely based on keywords and search engine page results. They show the ads only when the person is looking for it, except when the advertiser opts to show it in Google’s partner’s platforms.

    Winner Winner Chicken Dinner: Who Is The Winner?

    There is no clear winner in this bout. Paid advertisement is absolutely fruitful when the advertiser knows which campaigns to use where. In this situation, Google becomes as effective as Facebook and vice versa. This blog is not only focused on the clash between two giant corporations but also between SEM and SMM and which is the best effective Digital Marketing Strategy for promotion. The winner can only be determined by your subjectivity and the size of your business.

    How to Avoid Duplicate Content
    How to Avoid Duplicate Content

    By CTCDC.in | Tuesday, July 30, 2019

    On Site SEO

    Beginner

    Salman Khan in “Judwaa”, Charlie Chaplin in “The Great Dictator” or Arnold Schwarzenegger in “The Sixth Day”, people have always been enthralled by the phenomena of duplicacy. But like in the films, duplicacy always attracts trouble in real life too. Duplicating content can surely get the job done fast but leaves a trail of dissatisfaction among readers, viewers, as well as among the producers of the parent content. By avoiding filling your content with plagiarism, you can prevent inviting an expensive copyright lawsuit. And also, the weblings consider no other sin bigger than the act of plagiarizing. Although Google does not penalizes the plagiarized content holders but the duplicate content negatively affects the ranking and visibility of web pages. So, let’s talk about the causes of duplicate content and the methods of avoiding them.

    What Is Duplicate Content?

    Duplicate Content is a piece of information that is available on the internet in exactly identical or similar wording. These appear so due to the ingenuity of creators who sometimes copy-paste content from similar website to promote their own thereby creating a duplicate content. However, this is not the only cause of duplicate content as there are many catalyst in the creation of it. According to a research, about 25-30% of the world wide web is duplicate content since competition on many keywords is very high, which leads to mass production of content based on it, leading to duplicacy through coincidence of wording.

    Google search engine encourages conception of original content by indexing sites and web pages with unique and distinct information. If Google recognizes a duplicate content has been inserted within a website to manipulate its visibility and ranking, it adjusts its indexing and ranking. In simple words, any site suffering from plagiarized or duplicate content can be removed by Google from SERPs. So black hats beware! Your own dexterity might backfire!

    What Causes Duplicate Content?

    There are many factors that lead to creation of duplicate content and unbelievable amount of those are accidental and non-malicious:

    duplicate-content-check


    Misinterpreted URL

    Some duplicate content occurs due to URL parameters. This is because in a CMS system database, an article which is posted by a developer and perceived to be a single entity, can be given access to multiple URLs by the website’s software to create duplicate content. Similarly session IDs create new URLs and duplicate content when a website is unable to store their data.
    Another, way URLs become a catalyst in developing duplicate content is through tracking and sorting. Sometimes a URL is extended if a feature is clicked, but that feature lands the user to the same page, thereby creating another URL while keeping the content similar.

    Comment Pagination

    Sometimes another page is created when you click on a comment, this leads to creation of duplicate content. Pagination, then here, refers to creation of pages.

    Protocol Format: HTTP and HTTPS or WWW Pages

    If your website has both HTTP and HTTPS web address, then congratulations you’ve created, a duplicate website with entirely similar content. This thing goes exactly the same with WWW and non-WWW pages.

    Blessing of Scrapers

    Sometimes, without your permission, a visitor copy-pastes your content and uses it in your site. This act of plagiarism is known as scraping. Scrapers remain active on all search engine platforms and do not give due credits to the parent content. So you need to take care of these people, for as much as your site increases in popularity, more and more scrapers scrap from it.

    How To Avoid Duplicate Content

    You can always check plagiarism or duplicate content through duplicate content checker such as Smallseotools, Duplichecker, Grammarly and many more. If these plagiarism checker tools show plagiarism, then you can follow the given methods of corrected duplicate content:

    duplicate-content-seo-2019


    301 redirect

    301 redirect allows a visitor to jump from duplicate page to original page, thus fighting duplicacy. This not only distinguishes the original page from the duplicate one but also helps the page rank well on SERPs, rewarding its uniqueness.

    Rel="canonical"

    A rel=“canonical” attribute informs the search engine that a certain web page is a copy of another page and should be treated as such. This accredits the content present in the duplicate URL to the original URL and gives it due ranking power to show up on SERPs. A rel=“canonical” attribute is inserted in the of a page and looks like this:
    google-duplicate-content-checker
    By placing original link of the web page in the href section, you can allow search engines to keep in mind that this is the original page and all the related pages with similar content are plagiarised.

    Robots noindex

    Robots noindex or Meta noindex,follow is a meta tag that is extremely useful for combating duplicate content. When content=”noindex,follow” is added to the head of a plagiarized page, the search engine is informed not to index that web page.
    And by following these methods you can avoid duplicate content or at least minimize its presence in your web pages.

    Achieving Featured Snippet Ranking Accompanied By Zero Link Building
    Achieving Featured Snippet Ranking Accompanied By Zero Link Building

    By CTCDC.in | Wednesday, July 31, 2019

    Ranking & Visibility

    Intermediate

    Featured snippets has received both honor and blame from SEO critics. Small sites found it easy to get more traffic and rank on featured snippets, as on the other hand big corporations questioning about stealing of traffic by google with the featured snippets.
    You may have used link building strategies or techniques for enhancing Ranking on SERPs, while running your link building campaign but this post is not about Backlinking. This post will help you rank page on Google’s featured snippets without link building ?”

    Understand the VARIETY

    Majorly there are three kinds that you can go for, these are-
    • If you are a blogger, you can go for Paragraph snippets or list snippets, although you can also target Table snippet.
    • Down below Ahrefs’ graph showing snippet type and their percentages.

    google-featured-snippet


    Right keywords-Targeting

    After finalizing your snippet, now you have to take a deep dive and start keyword research using your keyword research tools and collect keywords relevant to your blog and matching requirement of a snippet that you are going to use.
    If your featured snippets is paragraph snippet, find those keywords which are foremost related to these types:
    • How to
    • Who/what/why

    benefits-of-featured-snippets


    Or, if you want to rank for the numeric list then you can organize and place your content in a step by step guideway. As SEO experts say, when a searcher looks for a list and it is communicated by keywords to Google, then Google shows a numeric list on featured snippets.

    google-snippets


    In Table snippet case, you can have structured schema data on your website which compares the minimum two sets of data on the page. As long as schema and comparison are there you don’t need to have a column-based table which is properly formatted to be able to rank for table snippets.

    snippets-seo


    Yout half job will be done in the process of ranking your website on featured snippets with zero link possession, only if you are targeting the right keywords and understood the type. Out-throwing existing featured snippets will not make you win the battle. Out-throwing will only work with keywords not having featured snippets ranking on Google.

    Copying your competitor

    Some may call it adopting, some may call it inspiring but in reality, you are copying structured of existing featured snippets article and developing it better( with content and if possible SEO link building)

    What I am trying to say when I say:
    Copying and developing it into a better form! For example, if you want to rank for the keyword “dry dog food on the market” and one that is ranking at this moment possess a list of 25, you need to build a list of 30, using the same format used by the one that is ranking.
    Once the above part is done, make sure of proper schema on your website page. Frankly speaking, if you are not ranking in the top 10 for that keyword then the above method will not help you outrank the existing featured snippets.

    Now how to find keywords for featured snippets?

    Well, you know if you found the right keywords in terms of ranking on featured snippets, you are halfway in winning your battle. You can choose any keyword research tool as you like but make sure to remember the above steps while working for higher ranking on featured snippets.
    Now, let's have an illustration, in case you use Semrush( keyword research tool)

    • Put on of your competitors on search by going on Semrush
    • Choose “include > search features > featured snippets by selecting positions in “organic research”.
    • What will be visible is a list of keywords that are ranking currently.
    • Now add more filter, select include > words count > greater than five. After this organize keywords based on volume and based on your target market.
    • Go for keywords that have a volume less than 500/month, as these keywords have low volume and moderate search and that will give you a good start.
