Below I have put together the SEO modules I am currently using in my projects. Drupal 8 is by far the best release to date, packed full of features and SEO implementations out of the box. Saying that there is always times when contributed modules are a life saver! This is mainly a list for me to refer to but it may help you too :) This is posted August 2018.
Over the last few weeks, due to Google's updated algorithms, I have had an increase in emails from agencies offering guest posts and text link proposals. These types of emails are now not just becoming annoying but the way they are initially worded appears to be legitimate interest in my websites and indeed offering money for advertising.
This of course is not new to me nor to anybody else with a website with regular traffic. But due to the way these emails are being worded and many coming from the UK appearing to be legitimate companies, I feel obliged to reply.
This is a question I received today on a closed Facebook group and due to this being the type of question I get asked for quite a bit I felt I would adapt my answer slightly to fit nicely into a blog post. I needed to spend a little time thinking about how to answer this question because to be asked this question in the first place shows some lack of understanding. To answer this question first you need to understand a little more about how websites are ranked in the first place. Firstly, Google have over 200 factors that their algorithms take into account when ranking a website.
After surviving the Google Penguin update, do you know what should now be the focus of your SEO campaign? Before this question can be answered, it is important to know what the meaning of the Penguin update was. In a nutshell, the Penguin update addressed anything to do with web spam. The recent Penguin update caused many SEO experts to sit up straight and begin to fear the worst as the most recent Penguin update actually changed the algorithm rather than refreshing it.
