Okay, we’re live. Everybody. This is Bradley better with semantic mastery. And this is
Hump Day hangouts Episode 229. And let’s see Adams not here today, he usually drives this
train wreck So, so I’m going to try to try to announce everybody as well as he does.
We’ve got everyone here except for Adam. So I’m going to go on down the line as we see
it, Chris, how you doing? Unknown 0:26
Doing good. Super excited that I got my report out the PDF. I hope everybody liked it. And
yeah, if you haven’t checked it out yet, how the recommended it’s in our free group. I
think it’s called facebook. com slash groups luscious you tutorials. And yeah, Unknown 0:44
let me know. Why don’t you post it on this page to Chris? Unknown 0:48
Yeah. Give me a second. Unknown 0:51
By the way, how are you doing today? Unknown 0:54
Me I’m well, I’m happy to be here. I got a lot of cool stuff to talk about today, guys,
before we get into questions, because we got several new services available on MTV. I’ll
get to that in a minute. Let’s get through the introductions first. So her non you’re
up next. What’s up, buddy? Unknown 1:07
Hey, what’s up everybody? I’m super excited. And yeah, Adam just confirmed that we were
right. He wanted us talking about MTV and the benefits that they will bring to our beloved
audience. So we’re good. I’m good, man. I’m good. I’m excited to be here. That’s good.
I’m good stuff happening. And this is this type of shit that I had to deal with when
talking to Adam, you know what I’m saying? So anyways, Unknown 1:29
that’s awesome. And then last, but not least Marco. How are you? Unknown 1:33
Hey, what’s up, man? I wanted to do this live. Chris. a PDF was awesome, man. And let me
tell you why. Because that’s just a small sample. And as soon as I saw it, I said, holy
crap. What have you just take this and like 10 exit, I know that I know that you’re doing
it just, it was like a like a play thing for you. Right? Yes, four hours. This is what
I made. So you’re ready, around 125 bucks an hour. So imagine if you actually spent
eight hours or we spend a week on that you spent four hours but what if you spend a week
on it? For hours each day, which is only 20 hours, it’s only have your work will have
most people’s work week is always about a quarter of mine. But imagine how much you
could get done. And if you do four times what you did well, now you’re over $1,000 a month
recurring, which you can then just just leave alone, basically. So I just wanted to tell
you, man that that friggin PDF, rocks and the people don’t realize the value in that
then it’s their loss. And their problem. They have they have a hood pole over their eyes
color because they’ve been taught by the SEO experts and gurus and ninjas, and fuck towards
that it’s difficult to do this thing. It’s very difficult. And it takes science. And
it takes correlations and it takes all of the suffering and you have to buy all of these
shiny objects in order to be able to make it work. And you did it Wham Wham four hours
Thank you give me my money. So man big ups on what you did and people follow it. You
want to make money. Just follow a Chris lay down. And of course, I got to pat myself on
the back because he did us Dr. sacks. Unknown 3:18
Of course, like it’s I’m using our methods here. Like thanks for the heads up. Unknown 3:23
What do we do here? Unknown 3:25
Yeah, well, that’s why Okay, so hold on. Unknown 3:29
Yeah, her non pasted the link guys to the group. So yeah, if you want to join, if you
want to see the PDF that Mark was talking about, and and Chris created, which is amazing.
Go just go join the free Facebook group, you’ll see it in there. And you can download it or
check it out there. But you what’s great about it is one of our members. Unknown 3:47
I can’t remember who it was mentioned it, but was talking about how he posted this real
long test testimonial about how he read through it and how it really was, you know, very enlightening.
And it’s a great reply or review of the PDF because, guys, there are too many people in
this industry, that overcomplicate stuff I’m we have students are members that come into
our groups that, you know, they they spend hours developing a silo architecture drawing
for some website that they want to build that like, you know, I mean, like hours and hours
of research and developing all these like, you know, crazy methods. And then they say,
Hey, what do you think about this, and it’s like, Unknown 4:27
you just spent a ton of time that you could have been actually building an asset that
would be start producing for you. So I mean, again, I’m not picking on anybody here. But
I think what he had, what he had said, and what Marco was just saying and with Chris’s
PDF guide shows is that we don’t need to overcomplicate stuff all the time, sometimes we’re going
to have projects that are very complex, but for the most part, we overcomplicate stuff,
and we don’t need to, we learn to simplify, just take action, taking action on the simple
stuff that is foundational might not be as sexy might not be as you know, as sophisticated,
but it’s the stuff that it works. And that’s really why we try you know, we try to provide
you guys with training like that as much as as often as often as possible. Excuse me.
So, do we are a couple other like housekeeping things real quick, guys, before we get into
the questions and the announcements that we have. And all that is if you’re here for the
first time, please subscribe to our YouTube channel. Because we’ve got a ton of videos.

And if you’re ready to join this awesome community of people that we have been helping, and they
have been helping us for the past four or five years, go to mastermind, that semantic
mastery. com We have a couple of new people jumping in over the past couple days. So you
guys are awesome. Thank you for that. And I think that’s all pretty much all he mentions.
Right? Unknown 6:36
Yeah, you got it. Unknown 6:38
All right. And so now I’m going to get into a couple announcements. Unknown 6:42
So empty ye which is our store it for done for you services, guys. It’s empty, Why be
co which stands for make Google your bitch, dot CEO, that’s the that’s the website. That’s
our store now or a marketplace, wherever you want to call it. We just launched several
new products in the last week. And just this week, I should say, we’ve got our link building
manager who’s been working with me, he originally started working for me, but now he’s got his
own company, his own business. So he’s a contractor for us. But he is just an absolute ninja.
He’s been building links for me for six years now. Five or six years, I think six years.
And he’s just absolutely amazing. There’s no better link builder in the business when
it comes to using spam links, you know, spam tools and that kind of stuff, which I don’t
think that’s a bad thing, guys, there’s very strategic ways to use that if you know how
to do it. And this guy knows what he’s doing. Well, we’ve got the link building service
available now and mg why the store, we’ve also got the link indexing service, we get
a lot of questions all the time about how to get links index, well, our service is got
one of the highest success rates available, because it’s it’s handled by our link building
manager who does a ton of you know, spam type links or so that they need to be indexed in
order to get the most use out of them. So he’s really, really good at that. And we also
have the embeds available. Which is, you know, embedding is the new way to get do follow
link juice out of know, even nofollow type sites. So the embed service, you can embed
GMB maps, you can embed My Maps, you can embed videos, YouTube videos, obviously, you can
bet pretty much anything that can be iframe. And that’s that’s really where there’s a ton
of power right now one of the most, and market could talk about this briefly, but one of
the most powerful things that you can do is do an embed blast, and then link building
to the embeds. It’s very, very powerful marketing want to chat about that for a minute. Unknown 8:29
Yeah, without without giving away too much as the foundation of our ys Academy reloaded.
Now, people think it’s other things. And so since Google closes some things off, they
call it it’s dead. It’s not working well, good. You know, if you think it’s not working,
that that’s, then the people who are in our way as Academy reload are really happy, because
it’s one less person in there that could possibly compete in their niche, right. So it leaves
the niche all to them. So they can just take over. And I’ve talked about this before. Yeah,
we got people taking over more gets loan mortgage lenders, we gotta be. It’s not easy keywords,
and I talked about it before plumber plus city try ranking for that. How difficult is
that. And we’ve managed it on on a test. Unknown 9:14
on just a test with with spam links. I’ve talked about this before. So now we have it.
And how we’re going to make it available is which is incredible. Darya can embed just
about anything that doesn’t have an extreme. And for those of you who don’t know who I
revenue to this thing, an X ray will not allow a website to be embedded to start something
like the New York Times Google search, and other websites have have instituted that so
so because they they kind of know, or they don’t want their website embedded on something
else. Because you know, it’s their reputations, their website, that’s their content. So you
can understand that, at any rate, there’s plenty other websites that can be embedded.
And it just works like crazy. And yes. And embed run link building to the embed run tiered
link building. And the final step, which Bradley Bradley has the course right? Unknown 10:12
YouTube, pay Google to send you traffic and validate your entire entity and and the entire
all of the links streams coming into your entity can be validated. By using Google,
you pay Google a little bit to get a whole lot. That’s the idea. Always use Google to
your benefit. Don’t let Google use you. Unknown 10:36
There you go. So I’m trying to post a photo on this screenshot, guys on this new Facebook
comments thing we were having issues with the discuss app for the last few webinars
that we’ve done since we had to change format since Google event page has got terminated.
And unfortunately, we were using the discuss app that it wasn’t and it wasn’t working real
well. Some people aren’t able to post or whatever scenario trying Facebook comments, and I’m
not much of a Facebook fan. So I’ve got to get used to this. But unfortunately, it looks
like we can’t post images. Which sucks because we used to get a lot of really funny means
from our members, or audience. Now I don’t know how to pose it guys. If you guys know
how to post a image, let me know because I’m not sure. I’m not sure either. It doesn’t
look like you can post photos. So anyways, I just posted on the page. There’s a screenshot
that says it’s posting a semantic mastery link building results to an iframe loop. In
fact, let me go ahead and just grab the screen and we’ll get into some of this stuff. Anyways. Unknown 11:36
You guys okay with that? Yeah, but not too much. Unknown 11:39
I thought. Unknown 11:41
Yeah, no, I just want to share some results here. Alright, so this right here is a screenshot.
I’ll zoom in on it a little bit Unknown 11:51
of a project of mine, it’s a GMB asset, that the only thing that I did was I set up the
local iframe loop, which is part of our training that we’ve covered it in syndication Academy.
It’s also covered in local least pro and it’s also part of local GMB pro in our last Academy
and and the mastermind, so pretty much any one of our paid trainings, it’s part of Okay,
and so it’s setting up what we call an ad ID iframe loop, it’s using the power of embeds
embedded properties. And all I did was set this up for GMB asset. And I used the same
link building service that we have available in July be store, it’s the same guy that builds
has been building links for me for about six years now. And we have different levels. But
this was the I use the competitive level package, which is 7000, tier one links, and 20,000
tier two links, pointed with one target URL, which was the ad ID page, again, part of the
local iframe loop, which that’s a service that we’re going to be providing to you guys
inside of MTV. Right now it’s available to mastermind members only at the done for you
service. But you know, so essentially, we will build the iframe loop for you. But that’s
only available to mastermind members currently. But within the next two to four weeks, we’re
going to make that available publicly is in the store. Okay, so anybody can can buy that.
But right now, it’s only available to mastermind members. So essentially, all I did was set
that up. And then I use the link building service, which was the competitive level 7000
tier one links 20,000, tier two links, pointing to one target URL, which was the ad ID page.
And that’s look at the results. Guys. Look at the results, all those keywords in the
top 10. And most of them are in the top five, see that and in my local and I’m in the three
pack for many of those keywords. This is for a tree service site. So our Tree Service,
GMB asset, you see that so I mean, it’s again, it’s incredibly powerful. And that was just
I mean, when you can do something that easy setup, Unknown 13:48
or iframe loop training, which if you learn how to do it, you can do it on your own, or
you could buy it from us when that’s available, and then just buy a link building package
pointed at it and get similar results. I’m not I can’t promise you going to get these
kind of results every time it’s going to depend on the market and all that kind of stuff.
But the point is, it was it was easy for me because all I had to do was like, you know,
say tell my team build the ID loop for me. And then I contacted our link builder and
said, Hey, I need this link building package. What do you suggest and he said, the competitive
package. I said, Okay, do it. And about two weeks later, I got the report back from them.
And it takes a little while for all those links to kick in. But you can see this screenshot
was just taken yesterday or maybe two days ago. So it was one or two days ago that I
took the screenshot from Pro Rank Tracker guys and you can see those kind of results
from a GMB asset. It’s incredible. Alright, so that’s what you guys can get over there.
Alright, we’re going to keep moving. We’ve got the only thing that sucks. I don’t know
if these comments update in real time either. Unknown 14:43
Yeah, they Unknown 14:44
do. I gotta get used to this stuff, man. All right. Yep. I’m not much of a Facebook fan.
All right, now I’m going to start at the bottom. We’re going to keep getting get rolling. I’m
just one more thing about that. Like I said that GMB off page services guys. We right
now we’re still guns, right? We’re a little bit. A little bit nervous about doing any
sort of are offering done for you on page GMB work where we have to, you know, actually
do optimize a GMB asset. It’s because Google is still right now kind of on a rampage trying
to shut or suspend GMB assets. With with you know, it. They’re just very easily triggered
to be suspended now. So we’re not we’re not willing to give that or offer that as a service
right now. However, the off page stuff, which wouldn’t affect your GMB asset, other than
to help it rank. That’s something that we can provide. Again, it’s available in the
mastermind only right now. But that’s only because we’re just like it was it’s my team
that I trained personally for the exact same procedures and processes that might that I
use for my business. So and it’s my personal view it well, I say personal their company
VA is. But they’ve been working exclusively with me on my team for the last five months.
And so they’re really, really good at what we do for that specific method, that loop
and in some of the other off page stuff that we do. So they’re the ones that are actually
going to be fulfilling this service for the mastermind members currently, once we get
that, because now we’re doing it for others, we just got to get the fulfillment basically
smoothed out, make sure we work out any bugs within the processes of fulfilling and delivering
the service. And once we have that, ready, then we’re going to make that available in
MGB for the for you guys as well, for those of you that are not part of the mastermind.
So again, it’s something that I would encourage you guys to look out for in the next few weeks
or come join the mastermind so you can get get to it now. Because it’s something that
just incredibly powerful. It’s working really, really well. Alright, so we’re going to go
to Matt Hale first, he says, Is it a good idea to find expiring domains with keywords
in the URL and natural links going to them and then throw that one knows to a Google
site? Or would it be better to just send PB ends to the Google Site instead? Assuming
the PB ends will probably be more powerful, but will probably be random URLs compared
to relevant URLs and less power with the expiring domains? Unknown 17:00
That’s a good question, because I don’t really do much pbn work anymore. I really haven’t
for several years. Matt, I would say I always recommend relevancy over power, because you
know, what power is really just a third party metrics is what you’re looking at. Right?
So when you’re talking about PB ends, unless you’re getting links from private blog sites,
or network sites that are highly relevant to your target URL, then really why how is
that good? Like, you know that it used to be several years ago, when I did a lot of
pbn work metrics, were something that you could use to, you know, if you had Unknown 17:42
properties that had high trust flow, or high da or P page authority, especially from the
you know, the pages that was linking to your site, that kind of stuff you could get, you
know, we used to call domain authority, manipulation, that kind of stuff, we could do that kind
of stuff and get results, but Google’s algorithm has gotten so much more sophisticated, and
it’s looking more for relevancy. Then third party metrics, you gotta remember guys, the
the metrics that you see from majestic or from Mars or from a dress, those are proprietary
third party metrics, that’s their best guess it’s an educated guess I’ll give you that.
But it’s their best guess as to what Google is determining that you know how to rate or
quantify the power or the link equity of a site or a page. But none of those companies
work directly for Google, the PageRank algorithm, page rank is still alive and well, but it’s
an internal thing that is closely guarded. So none of the companies actually have insight
like, you know, specific insight as to what Google is doing, and how they’re ranking pages
and scoring and all that kind of stuff. So they’re all proprietary metrics that again,
they’re educated guesses, but they’re just guesses. And so we learned a long time ago,
several years ago to get away from targeting or worrying about metrics and worrying more
about relevancy. and knock on would it’s worked really well, for us. And for, you know, our
students that follow because we go through update up after update after update and haven’t
seen any significant loss of anything, because we’re not targeting metrics, we’re not following
metrics are chasing metrics, I should say. So I would recommend relevancy over metrics
any day of the week. The problem with PB ends is unless you get a highly themed network,
right public, excuse me, private blog network, so you get your content placed, or your links
placed on networks, private blog networks that are highly themed and relevant to your
target URLs. That could be powerful. But if the problem is most private blog networks
in, in order to get more customers and more revenue from those networks, they’re more
generalized blogs. And those tend to not be as powerful unless the net with the blog sites
themselves have incredibly high metrics. But again, I don’t recommend that I would rather
you go look for expired domains. I think that’s kind of a, you know, looking for expired domains
with relevancy is better. But even then, I think that’s more work and more money and
effort than it’s really necessary, because you can create your own relevancy using Google
properties. Right. And that’s what we’ve been teaching for several years now. For example,
our Why is Academy that’s an academy reloaded, which is teaches you how to use Google Drive
properties to push authority and relevancy. And we, you know, provide those that services
it done for you service with our is Dr. Stack service and MTV. And Marco, he doesn’t use
PB ends at all, because he accomplishes everything that a pbn could have, or even expired relevant
domains could with Dr. stacks and Google Sites, right. And that’s an link building to those
Dr. stacks and Google Sites. And that’s exactly what we’re talking about here. With the iframe
stuff that we’re doing. Now. It’s like, incredibly powerful, you can inject relevancy through
the drive stack through the Google Site through I frames, and then you can throw the kitchen
sync it that stuff, even if it’s your iframe, they’re linked directly to your money assets,
you can throw the kitchen sink at the Google properties, because they’ll take it like a
champ and essentially launder any negative effect to where our you’re going to get his
additional benefit, like, you know, ranking benefit from it. Market. You want to talk
about that a bit? Unknown 21:19
No, you said it perfectly. Well, I’d rather do my things that I can control that I can
control the content, the the VM beds, and if it needs to be taken, like if I need more
power, what I’ll do is I’ll point an extra Dr. Stack and G site at an inner page, right?
You know, you know, I do because I just I just build them out there satellite, they’re
like PB ends. Except there’s no such thing as a pbn anymore. Yeah, there is private blog
network, know, you’re buying a domain to provide a link for your website, at something totally
different than what used to be done with you used to buy into the network so that you could
a little link in the network, back to your website, and all of that activity in the private
blog network would help out, but by throwing relevance, trust and authority and everything
else, at your website, or like Bradley said, I can accomplish accomplish that much quicker,
much, much more powerfully, by just working in what I know, which is Dr. stacks, and G
sites. And since that’s what I know, and I know how much power is in those, what I’ll
do is I’ll create that, then I’ll set up a press release stack, in that at the G sites
plus Dr. Second at everything, right, it sounds like it’ll be pointed at everything. Five,
six, but whatever. However many press releases, it takes that you take all of those URLs,
and you just do link building. And it just works beautifully well as he just as you just
showed, with your link building except example in the results that you got. And then to top
that off, you get some traffic in there and validate everything. So that Google said oh,
this is lovely, thank you very much. That’s it, instead of going and you know, you have
to host that you have to go look at the backlink profile, you have to make sure that there
was a spam that there were no, no Chinese sub them. Just so many different things that
you have to do. I don’t want to deal with it. Thank you very much. I create my own Unknown 23:16
set. Unknown 23:18
So Troy’s up he says should photos for GM BB geotagged from different service locations
they were taken from are always the business address. What’s better for SEO? Well, if it’s
a service area business, Troy it’s absolutely better to be geotagged. Like if you can get
real photos that were taken from mobile devices that have the geo tagging, or essentially
like where they would stay up the exit data from where the location that they’re taken,
which those are for service area businesses, that is way better, that is absolutely better.
But you can still geotagged images in throughout the service area from like using exit, exit
data, you know, editors, for example. So like I use geo center, my team uses geo Center,
which is a desk top software. But there’s online versions of it and things like that,
where you can actually add geo coordinates, and AP name, address phone number, you can
add keywords, categories, all that kind of stuff, to the actual data, the metadata of
the photos. And so if you know if my team is working remotely, and the client, for example,
isn’t providing me with original photos that were taken from mobile devices from around
their service area, then my team will go out and generate photos. We talked about multiple
ways to do that. But then they’ll geotagged the images using geo setter for in different
locations within that service area. So that not all of the amounts of if it’s a storefront
business where the customers come to the business location. So what I would call a storefront
business, right, then yeah, you can just hammer away at that specific address that specific
location, geo coordinate, right. But for service area businesses, it’s best to spread it out
across your whole service area. That way, it starts to Google starts to really create
a like map a link between all of those images and your business. And it can help to expand
your Google My Business footprint so to speak. That makes sense. So it depends on what kind
of business it is. But absolutely for service area businesses, I think you’re better off
doing geo tagging, if you can get original photos, that’s your best bet, guys, for my
clients that do provide photos, I got a few of them. I’ve got a couple roofers that provide
me photos, I just got a photographer client, believe it or not, that, you know, obviously,
they provide me with he provides me with original photos. But what I do is just set up a Google
Photos album, a shared Google Photos album, and then I link my blogger, like I share the
album with the client, or any of the clients, you know, associates or whatever if they’re,
if other people other than just the owner is taking photos. And then I share with my
blogger, or my bloggers depending on with who the client is, and how many people were
actually, you know, producing content for that client. And so that way they have all
they have to do is just go to the Google Photos album, and download the photos and use those
and then upload them as GMB posts or within blog posts or whatever they wherever they’re
using them period. And they’re already geotagged, and they’ve been within always stored and
held within the Google ecosystem. So it’s very, very powerful. And it’s just a very
convenient way for us to store the photos. And it’s easy for the clients to because most
of them are just taking photos from their phone anyways. So they just set up the Google
Photos app to where whenever they take a photo, it automatically gets inserted into those
that you know, in the Google Photos and then they can move them around between albums and
things if they want, but most of my clients will just move them into the shared photo
album that we have access to that my bloggers can access those photos at any time. And it
works really well. Problem is most of the clients. Most clients will not provide you
with photos. They just won’t do it. They might tell you they will do it, but a lot of them
won’t. But the ones that do that’s a great way to do it. Unknown 26:51
Next question GMB will having both surface area set service area set and business and
IP address that in gym because they filter or negative SEO from Google Yes. Service Area
only that only use a single city point. Unknown 27:04
One city point or surrounding city points for maps listings? Unknown 27:09
If I’m not quite sure I understand that question. If it’s a service area business, you’re supposed
to hide the address. Right? There are some exceptions where this can be a service area
business. But sometimes customers do come to the business like for example, Unknown 27:24
company store or businesses that have showrooms. So Kitchen Remodeling companies is one of
them get here’s an example guys because Kitchen Remodeling companies their their service area
businesses because they go to the the customers house or location to install the kitchens.
But a lot of kitchen remodeling companies will have showrooms where they have, you know
my kitchen set up with different cabinetry and countertops and that kind of stuff, flooring
options and stuff like that, that they’ll use. So those are one of the exceptions where
you can have a service area business and still show the actual physical world location, however,
that you can trigger a suspension by having a service area business and still showing
or trying to show the physical location, the physical address, even in the case of kitchen
remodeling companies, at which point you can contact Google My Business support and explain
what the deal is and that they will reinstate the listing if that if it’s a valid business
that you can prove as a business and you have a unique situation like that where it’s one
of the few acceptable situations or acceptable times where that that that can occur, then
they will reinstate the GMB for that. But again, for most service area businesses, you’re
going to buy Google’s own terms of service, you’re gonna you’re going to want to clear
the address from the GMB profile before publishing it. Does that make sense? Or before adding
your service areas, so you got to verify first and if you’ve verified the traditional way,
which is via snail mail or postal mail, then once you verified it before you go in and
edit the info and address service areas, you’re supposed to open up the location setting and
clear the address. And then you go into the next section, which is adding your service
area and start adding in your individual service areas or by city or by county or however you
want to do it. That makes sense. Okay, but again, there are some some specific situations
that are exceptions to that rule, but you still may have you still may still may trigger
trigger a suspension, in which case you have to contact Google support. Unknown 29:28
James says Hey guys, have you got any recommendations for directory start plugging a WordPress theme
many things. I haven’t built any directory style stuff in a long time. So I don’t have
any recommendations. James I’m sorry, I would just suggest just doing a Google search for
directory style WordPress theme or directory WordPress theme or if it’s for local businesses
do Local Business Directory WordPress theme. And just look through some of them. What I
would recommend though is you go with a theme developer that has good standing that’s been
around it’s been established been around for a long time. Because if you go and if you
go with a you know, like a Ws O, or JV Zoo type of theme provider, which third diamond
doesn’t guys, it’s very likely that in two years from now, they won’t support it anymore.
So if you’re going to spend the time building a directory theme, or directory site on WordPress,
I recommend that you only go with a very well established long term company that’s been
a long around for a long time. Again, do not go with one of them budget, JV Zoo type offers
or w SOS or you know, Warrior Forum type stuff where your plus whatever type, trust me, I
bought a lot of those teams over the years because they looked great. And the sales,
you know, you buy them on launch special and things like that. And then within a year 18
months, they no longer support them. And you know, updates, break the themes, and then
you’re screwed. And then you have to go back through and find another theme and rebuild
the site, you know, reconfigure everything and it’s just a pain in the ass. So you’re
much better off going with Well, well established theme the developers Unknown 31:00
Okay. Unknown 31:03
Next sorry, me getting tools you can recommend to scrape business directory listings job
advertisements that are easy to in doesn’t have a big learning curve many things. Um,
no, I because I don’t really use any I’ve tried to use some like home advisor and Yellow
Pages, scrapers that I bought from just random, you know, developers by doing Google searches
and finding and I found most of them are junk. They’re just crap and they don’t work or they
like they just they just suck. So I don’t really know. I know. If you’re just trying
to scrape bleeds, I would recommend one of two things. One is leads recon if you go to
semantic mastery. com slash leads recon. That’s by Ted Chen, the developer. He’s the same
developer of power suggest Pro, which is our favorite keyword tool of all time, and also
have tube sift, which is a great tool for building YouTube advertising placement lists.
So Ted Chen’s a great developer, and leads recon is a great tool for scraping really
high I really like great email addresses for local businesses because it scrapes both Google
Maps as well as so GMB essentially, Google My Business as well as Facebook. And what’s
great about it is it’s it’s not a great tool for like building massive contact list. But
it’s great for more targeted lists were like, like for our video emails or video lead gen
system where we talk about targeting very narrowly or like laser like targeting of prospects,
which by the way video, lead gen system is one of our products to talk about how to how
to prospect using video email, it’s very, very effective. And I’m actually updating
that currently right now because I’m doing prospecting for monetizing GB GMB assets.
And we’re going to be relaunching that next month with all the updates and in April. So,
you know, I highly recommend if you guys are doing prospecting for either client work or
for lead gen assets that you have that you need to get monetized that you would be on
the lookout for the update for video lead gen system that’s coming next month, that
though what I was saying was with semantic mastery. com slash leads recon, why I’m telling
you that just because you can get it at a discount through our link number one. But
number two, it’s a great tool for developing really highly targeted list because it will
go scrape Facebook pages and find like Yahoo and Gmail each email addresses and for some
of those people still have AOL email addresses, you’ll find those, so you get most of the
time direct to the business owner. But if you want to do mass scraping, I would still
recommend using something like lead Kahuna. We have sorry, we don’t have an affiliate
link for that. But you can contact David spragg Unknown 33:36
local genius or whatever they call and find out if you can get a link to purchase that.
I think that’s about $300 a year. But that works really well. If you’re building mass
list massive prospecting lists. Okay. Unknown 33:50
Good question. Blue Line says, Hello, everyone. I want to create a YouTube channel for a local
business lead gen. Can you please show an example of the right way to choose a name
for the channel and for the company? Should it just be city plus industry? No, don’t do
city plus industry because that’s too generic and it’s too spammy. So come up with something
that’s, you know, semi branded, like, you know, you could use I don’t know, just just
come up with something that’s a pseudo brand, something that could be thought of as somebody
glanced at it, they wouldn’t immediately know that it was just a spam, you know, an SEO
creating a spam site or spam channel. Right? If you just do city plus industry that’s going
to it’s very apparent to anybody that knows anything about digital marketing, what you’re
doing. So if you can come up with a branded name, instead, I would recommend that you
do that. Unknown 34:37
Okay. Unknown 34:39
So absolutely come up with a brand name. Also is a good to include a it’s a good doing to
the include the exact keyword and each title name for every social network, like Tumblr
and Google site. Thanks a lot. Well, no, it’s not. I mean, you can but I don’t recommend
it. Because again, that that looks spammy right off the bat. Number two, you know, with
if you were to use an exact match domain for self hosted website that puts the Google filter,
it lowers the threshold for you to trigger spam filters. So why is it any different for
social media? I mean, yes, guys, I know people spam that shit all the time. I get that but
what are you want to build something that was a short term asset that produces revenue
for short period of time because it is still working now? spamming their your titles and
your you know your titles for pages? And you know, stuff like that? Or would you rather
produce a longer term asset that two years down the road is still producing revenue for
you because you didn’t spam it to death? Now, you see what I’m saying? We try to produce
more longer term assets. I don’t like the churn and burn strategy. I don’t like building
something that produces revenue for me. And then six months a year, 18 months down the
road, I have to rebuild it all because I did something spammy, to get initial results.
Does that make sense? I’d rather take a little bit more effort on the front end and create
something that’s branded that I could create a brand around that, then it’s going to have
longevity, so that my my effort will pay off in the long run. That makes sense. So I highly
recommend that you don’t stuff keywords into titles and things like that get, you can create
keyword, relevancy guys through the content, right, and how you structure the assets. If
you know about silo structure and things like that. You can silo pretty much anything. It’s
the way it’s what you do with content marketing. It’s how you silo right. So you can establish
the keyword relevancy through your content, and how you structure your content. It doesn’t
have to be through the titles that yes, you will get a boost by including the keywords
in your titles. But again, if it looks spammy, then you’re actually doing your your your
project a disservice. Unknown 36:41
Okay, next is Kevin. He says there were to check keyword rankings by bulk. Yeah, I mean,
you know, I just showed pro Rank Tracker. Unknown 36:49
Here. That’s one of the services that I use for tracking a lot of keywords in bulk if
you’re doing local stuff, right, locals great, I love bright local, that’s what I do to check
all my client stuff. So yeah, you can do it either way. Unknown 37:03
Anybody have any other suggestions? Unknown 37:09
Okay, moving on. The one says I’m trying to rank your service area business last week,
you suggested that I use press releases and blogs through syndication network to do so
the company does not currently have a blog. If we create one, how often you suggest to
post a blog article to benefit from the syndication network that’s going to depend on on the the
comp the competition level, also look at the industry, like what is the industry standard?
Now? For example, a lot of contractors don’t blog at all. And that’s a pretty standard
procedure for my my business. And my, you know, my clients is we blog. A lot of clients,
though, like we’ve moved away from doing blog posts regularly on their blog and doing more
GMB stuff. But we still do blog on their blog, like from the self hosted site if we if we’ve
been blogging in the past, but we another words, for example, like, you know, a lot
of contractors just don’t blog at all Well, we do. So we might only blog once a week or
once every other week, depending on what their budget is, right? And what what else we’re
doing as part of our overall strategy for for their SEO service for the month. But I’ll
give you a really good example I trained my VA one of my bloggers, she’s in the UK or
name is Michelle, she’s great. And she does blogging for several of my clients. And she
does q amp a post because q amp a question post guys Question and Answer posts are great.
Google loves them. If you don’t believe me. Just go do searches for whatever industry
you’re in, and ask questions and the Google like in the Google search bar or voice them
in through voice search, and ask questions that a customer looking for that product or
service would ask, like, how much does Tree Removal cost? Just guys go into another tab
right now and type that into Google and hit search? And you’ll see there are Question
and Answer boxes right on the Google search page, the search engine results page. So what
you can do is train your bloggers. If you’re if you’re doing it yourself, which I don’t
recommend, go start asking various questions in Google around the products like as if you
were looking for that product or service that you’re trying to promote? And start compiling
those questions and click click the little accordion menu the drop down which will open
up the answer and start recording down some of the answers then you can use those questions
and answers to create blog posts. Those are fabulous blog post guys. They’re great blog
post to create. And you can combine or group similar questions into blog posts that contain
multiple questions and answers that are kind of closely related. Or you can break them
out into shorter, more individual Question and Answer posts. Then once you post them
on your blog, then you publish a GMB post a Google My Business post that highlights
that blog post and links back to that blog post. Now you’re getting deep links from Google,
Google My Business back to your blog. And if you can include local relevancy into those
q amp a post, that’s how you’re going to start ranking for, you know, those types of you’re
going to help your GMB asset to rank as well. So again, it really just depends on you know,
what your budget is, what your overall strategy is, for your client on it, depending on the
industry, a lot of industries, you know, I deal with mainly with contractors, most contractors
do not blog regularly, well mine do. It depends on the the frequency depends on what their
budget is, and what really the needs are. Because it wouldn’t make sense to do three
posts a week for a roofing client, if we got them ranked already, or if you know, we could
get away with rank doing one post every two weeks and rank them. I typically when I’m
pitching a client on SEO Services, I recommend starting off with one or two blog posts per
week. For caught for most contractors and less, like I said, it’s an industry that has
got more content frequency, you know, publishing content more regularly, in which case will
increase the volume. Like I’ve got one Pest Control client that we been doing three blog
posts a week for six years. So you know, and they, they they rank for a ton of stuff and
they get a ton of traffic, not even local traffic. I mean, they get a lot of local traffic,
but they also get a lot of traffic nationally, because of all the questions, you know, the
questions and answers and the posts that they’ve been posting for six years. So they just got
a lot of content is what I’m saying. Unknown 41:20
Okay. Unknown 41:23
But yeah, definitely, if you’re using syndication networks, you should be blogging regularly
because that’s one of the engines that helps to drive the whole process. Ken’s up, he says,
I’ve been researching LD or JSON LD. Okay, I’m, I’m trying to figure out what schema
markup goes on the homepage. And what schema markup goes on the internal pages. What’s
the differences? Do I just put the same schema markup on all the pages? He says he looked
at built visible com, which is a great bog good info but seems to be out of date and
doesn’t answer my question doesn’t talk about ID Could you talk about this and there are
their trusted resources that you can point me to and towards towards the answer my question
why answer briefly? Can it depends on your type of site? Right, what what goes where
and all that if you’ve got a multi location, okay, let’s start simple. Unknown 42:06
It Hey, Bradley wet? I added, it doesn’t show that reply, I guess you’ll have to refresh,
refresh the page. I don’t I don’t think you need to do that. But I added the
search results for JSON LD, which is what Google recommends, why go with, you know,
instead of our DFA or any other type of schema, because Google tells you give us JSON LD,
that’s what they quoted there. But to read, so why do something else when Google is telling
you, this is what we want? This is what he preferred. This is what you should do? And
so everything is there. And then if you look in there, can you see that it’ll have something
like events? Well, if it’s if it’s not something that’s on the homepage, and obviously the
schema wouldn’t go on the homepage for events, it would go wherever you created your event. Unknown 42:54
So just go to And search, for example, JSON LD JSON LD, yeah. Ready. And
that I gave Ken, the the reference page, because that’s all you have to do. And you look through
there, and you put on the homepage or site wide, the company information site wide, if
you’re doing a different cities, then all of those different cities wouldn’t get the
same Jason plus LD information because you’d have a different city different address. Maybe
the company name changes a little bit if you’re doing the city name in the company. So you
just have to work out what makes sense for you. Sorry, but I just wanted to give him
that after you go ahead and finish it off. Unknown 43:38
Yeah, so what I was gonna say was start simple. If it’s a like, for example, if it’s a local
business side with one location, then you can put JSON LD local business markup in the
HTML header site wide, it’s perfectly fine. Right? That means every single page, every
post is going to have the JSON LD structured data markup for local business, it’s perfectly
fine to do. It’s a one location, local business, it’s a multi location business, then you’re
want to use organization markup site wide. And then on individual location pages, if
you’ve got separate inner location pages, which I would recommend you do, unless you’re
using subdomains, with separate sites per location, then on those individual location
pages, you you would put the local business markup. So each page would have its own, you’d
have to use something like SEO ultimate plus, which is the best WordPress plug SEO WordPress
plugin. Or you could use something. If you’re using another SEO plugin, that doesn’t give
you the ability to inject separate header codes and body codes and footer codes on a
page by page basis, then you can use something like so go header and footer plugin, which
is a WordPress plugin, it’s free. And it will allow you to inject different codes header
and footer and Body Body codes on different pages. So my point is, if you’ve got a multi
location business that has location pages for each specific location as inner pages,
then the organization markup can still go site wide. But on each individual location
page, you would have this separate local business markup. That make sense if you’re using subdomains,
and that’s easy, because each sub domain would get its own local business. So structured
data markup that can go site wide for each sub domain site, because it’s its own independent
entity, so to speak. Right. Alright, so that’s number one. Unknown 45:24
Number two, is this right here? If you talked about add ID pages, this right here is sem
rush calm, you can look at the schema markup for company, dash corporations, you guys,
you can search this in Google Doc, the link here in a minute. But this is where I really
learned about the the ad ID This is what triggered the ad ID trick or the iframe loop, as we
call it, that i i i kind of created that method somewhere back around January of last year.
Yeah. 2018. And it was because of this article here. Because I was doing like we had we you
know, as part of local business structured data markup, there is an ad ID field, right?
That there’s a field that you have to place a URL in. And everybody had always said, just
put the website URL there. Well, there’s a website URL field, and then there’s the ad
ID field. And so we were just using the same website URL for both went out one day, I was
doing some research for something else. And I came across this article, and I started
reading it and write down here where it says what is what is this ad ID. And I read this
section right here, it’s just from here, guys, down to about here. And that’s That’s it,
I’m like, but what it did was it explained to me that the ad ID page, this is a unique
URL that identifies the company, and it’s up to you to choose what the URL will be.
It can be a URL that returns a page, or you’ll return a URL that returns detailed information
in various formats. Or as in this case, a URL that returns nothing. The aim here is
to have a unique identifier for the entity. So like a universal resource indicator, right
guys like you are I right? So that’s when when I read this, it made the light bulb go
off, like oh my gosh, I know how we can use this. And that’s where I developed the local
iframe loop method. And that’s where we create the I’m not can’t give it away here, you have
to be in one of our paid programs to get it. But we create an ad ID page where we put all
this really good data and all of the most powerful entities or assets all in one location,
that then becomes the ad ID. And then we use that to do a lot of nasty iframe stuff that
we teach in our ys Academy. And that’s been incredibly powerful like that is standard
operating procedure for every single local asset that we build. Now. It’s part of it.
It’s like, it’s just like clockwork, and we build the ad ID iframe loop. And that’s where
like, that is our starting point and becomes our target our main target for all of the
external link building stuff that we do. But not not the website, guys. yet. I do page,
right. And it’s because of what I learnt read right here on this article. It’s this this
long, and I was like that right? There really is what spawned to that idea. And it’s just
been working like crazy. Okay. So there you go. Unknown 48:15
Next, Unknown 48:17
okay, do you want says I have a new client? And their goal is to rank and maps? would
you suggest suggest building out citations with the business side of dress and not their
typical website? No, I wouldn’t if they have a self hosted website, the one if they’ve
already got like, their own branded domain and all that use that, right, the business
site, so the GMB website, that’s just another asset that you can build that you can do all
kinds of cool stuff with. Unknown 48:42
I would love to give you a really good idea here on what you can do with that. But again,
it’s it’s it’s more back to the iframe stuff that I can’t really reveal on a free setting
like this, guys, come join the mastermind to on you’ve got a lot of really good questions.
You’ve got clients you’ve got, you probably got revenue coming in, you want to get your
client results come join the mastermind, because we do I mean, we’re sharing all kinds of stuff.
In fact, I’ve got, I’m expanding on this whole ad ID thing right now for a multi location
business, specifically that I have this got 20 locations. And I’ve got I’ve been started
building something out to expand upon our iframe loop method that incorporates all this
stuff that we’re talking about. And I’ve only got about 20, I just started building it out
about a week and a half ago. And I’ve only got about 20% of it complete, because I’m
doing it myself. And it’s a lot of work. I got about 20% complete and is already producing
incredible results across the board, like meaning all 20 locations are starting to get
better results from just about 20% of them about four, four of the locations actually
being in this new system that I’m developing, which is like I said, it’s kind of an expansion
of the iframe loop thing. I’m going to be hopefully I’m trying to get it completed by
next Thursday, which is our next mastermind webinar where I’m going to share it so but
yes, the business that business side that site still use that absolutely build that
guy’s flush those out with content, just did one today that I put a 1500 word article on,
actually might even been a 2000 word article on that and it like I haven’t hit the limit
yet of how much content you can put on the GMB website page. Like you know, the posts
only have 1500 character limit but the the GMB websites so far I haven’t found the limit.
And I put I think it was either 1500 or 2000 word article on it today, because I’m testing
different configurations. And so I’m saying flush those out really well use the bold function,
because you can’t manipulate like heading to header tags and things like that, and the
GMB website but you can bold stuff, you can underline stuff, you can italicize stuff that’s
like 19, or like 2005 SEO stuff. But you can still do that as kind of an indicator, don’t
spam your sites but which you know, on page on page spam them. But you can do things to
kind of indicate to Google what the important keywords are on the GMB website and use that
guys, you can use that as part of the iframe loop stuff. You can use that internally on
the side and specific ways you can kind of just remember we teach in syndication Academy,
how to create a footprint. You know, instead of hiding your footprint, you want to create
a footprint between all of your branded assets, use the Google My Business is part of that.
Right? You want to link from that out to some of your your top branded assets link from
the GMB website to those and then link from your top branded assets to your Jambi website,
as well as your other top branded assets. So you create like a little mini network of
entity profiles. Right? It’s very, very powerful. Unknown 51:34
But one is a lot of good questions, man. You gotta come. mastermind. So Dan says, Hey,
guys, two questions. Where can I find different accepted business types for local business
for Jason market? Oh, that’s why I pulled this up. Unknown 51:46
Right here guys, this is the most up to date list that I know of. I don’t know who manages
this. But this has been I’ve been I come to this because they changes often guys. This
is I’ll drop this link. It’s a shared Google Doc, you can edit it. It’s view only. It’s
I don’t again, I don’t know who maintains it, but it’s updated fairly regularly. And
so you can just scroll through here and find your specific business type that you need
the the what is the best score, the most current suggested schema markup type, the app type.
And you can find it in here, you’ll see a lot of them are like common construction businesses,
and you know, things like that, whatever professional services, but they’re constantly updating
these when they have new, Unknown 52:25
validated schema markup types that are, you know, new categories that has validated
or accepted. So it makes sense. So let me go ahead and publish this. Unknown 52:35
Yeah, he can also do a search again, in It’s really robust, and it shows you all the
all the business types. Unknown 52:46
Okay. All right. Um, I don’t know why it makes me do this every time. Next is our he says,
How does Oh, number two? I’m sorry, I missed your second question. Danny says if I have
a, for example, 10 GMB is all the same name with exception I’m city appendages, okay to
do batch press releases on all at the same time? Or do you feel a big footprint will
be established? Um, well, I mean, if they’re all separate, GMB assets, then you know, I
don’t know that they have unique Unknown 53:18
you know, location details, right. So this unique na p, the name, even the name is unique
because it looks like you’re a pending the city name to the to the actual, Unknown 53:28
the the name, the business name. So it is really unique, right, there’s a there’s a
commonality there. But they are all unique. So I don’t know, I haven’t had any problems
with it. We’ve we’ve used similar like a pseudo brand name, where it was the city plus the
pseudo brand name for 70. Some assets that we build out, we’ve only had a handful of
them suspended. And our standard operating procedure was after the iframe loop was built,
was to go out and publish a press release. Right. One of the things that we do is include
the media room, iframe in the end ID page. And so we one of the you know, again, it’s
just like syndication networks, right? We tell you guys, you want to prime the network’s
post a couple publish couple posts. Unknown 54:10
Once you get the networks built, or you build them yourselves first put some seed content
on them before you start automating post to them via IFTTT. But then once you get your
network Season Two little bit, then start publishing posts from your blog that get syndicated
to the networks before you start hitting your networks with a shit ton of backlinks. So
the same thing, you know, the GMB assets, we produce the on do all the on page work.
Then we build the off the off page iframe loop, which is like the first step, then we
publish a press release. And then from there, we start doing the on page work, like on the
content marketing, which is primarily driven through GMB posts right now. So it makes sense.
So I haven’t had any problems with it. I don’t, I think, Dan, especially if they’re newer
Jambi assets, it kind of makes sense because you’re announcing like a new business, right?
That’s a perfect excuse to use a press release. Unknown 55:02
Albert says guys, we’re going to run out of time here. over it says how does traffic affect
rankings? I wanted to get to this from to Chico to he’s a new mastermind member who
just joined yesterday. So I’ll get to that a minute. How does traffic effect effect rankings?
Well, if it’s good traffic validated, like traffic that isn’t just like random traffic
to your site, it’s a great signal. Like if traffic comes to your site and engages, there’s
dwell time there’s scroll death, there’s click through to other pages or activity on the
page, such as clicking to watch a video or to listen to an audio player or to expand
accordion menus. Guys, that’s a simple hack that you can do to your websites. If it’s
GMB stuff, you can’t really do this. But for a website, guys, one of the I just talked
about Question and Answer posts using q amp a post guys, they’re fabulous, because Google
loves them. If they didn’t love them, then there wouldn’t be q&a boxes, right into search
results. Right? So q amp a post guys are perfect examples of how you can add engagement to
your posts and get engagement signals from visitors because you can put the question
just like Google does, and an accordion menu, right to where the answer the only way to
reveal the answer is to click the down arrow or the plus button or whatever it does to
reveal the answer. Because that’s an engagement signal, same as scroll depth, right? If somebody
scrolls down the page, where they dwell on the page for an extended period of time, or
they click a link that takes them to another page, or they submit a form, or they click
a video, when they click an audio player, when they click to expand an image, all of
those things are engagement signals, random traffic, I don’t know that that there, I guess
there is some benefit to it. But it I think it depends on what type of website you’re
trying to promote. If it’s local stuff, random traffic from way outside of this, you know,
where it would be geographically relevant to get traffic doesn’t typically help that
much. But local traffic, where it’s within a particular geographic area is incredibly
powerful, especially if it’s traffic that is interested and Google has that knows that
the visitor has an interest in that content, right? Just what in market audiences are.
So you can buy that kind of traffic from Google directly. Unknown 57:09
That’s what we teach in the YouTube Traffic training. And recently, we’ve taught them
how to do that with the Google Display Network, which is exponentially cheaper than search
traffic, like buying search traffic from Google ads, do Google display ads, guys is a fraction
of the cost of buying search traffic. But you can get geo targeting, and you can get
topical relevant, or, you know, topical targeting audience targeting that way. It’s incredibly
fun. We just talked about that on the last mastermind webinar last week. So all right,
let’s see, we’re going to answer this and and I think I have to go. Yeah, cuz I gotta
run guys. It’s almost five o’clock. So I want to answer this one from Chico or one of our
new mastermind members, he’s asked this specifically. And we’re and we’re going to be covering this
in depth next Thursday, and the mastermind webinar, again, I’m going to be sharing a
multi location project that I’m working on right now and how to expand the iframe loop
method. I’m already seeing results. And again, I’m only about 20% through the the project.
So I’m going to be sharing that next week. He says if I choose to create my cities and
subdomains, all I have to do is create the sub domain and create the website or do I
have to do any special configuration so what he’s asking about is if he’s doing multi location Unknown 58:20
you know, business sites for a business, if a business has multiple locations in he wants
to use sub domain so I’m assuming he’s got a self hosted site. So the there’s a branded
domain there, and the company wants to or has multiple locations or wants to expand
into multiple other cities well, then I’ve always recommended doing city sub domain from
the branded domain so let’s just say it’s Joe’s plumbing for example, then doing like
call pepper Joe’s plumbing. com Fairfax, and these are Virginia cities but Fairfax Joe’s
plumbing, calm and Richmond you know, Joe’s plumbing calm and and then building a separate
installed a separate WordPress site or whatever type of site but I would, you know, typically
use WordPress on each individual city sub domain. And the reason why is because it protects
the actual root domain, for in case you were to do anything spammy, which we really don’t
do anything spam anymore. So I don’t know why that’s incredibly necessary still, but
I’ve just always tried to hedge any risk right to mitigate any potential risk. That guys
if you have, for example, if you were to do the same thing with inner pages, so Joe’s, slash Cole pepper, Joe’s dumbing Joe’s plumbing, com slash Fairfax, Richmond,
whatever, then, if any one of those individual pages for the locations that you did something
spammy, and it caught a penalty, it could actually that that penalty will be levied
across will be a domain wide right will affect the SEO value of the entire site, which means
it would help it could potentially pull down any rankings that you have in all of each
of the other cities. So by doing separate entity, individual WordPress installations
on subdomains, then what that does is each one of those are considered separate entities,
right? There is a connection. But But if you’re doing like your content marketing, for example,
on from each individual sub domain, then if if you were to catch a penalty on any one
of those subdomains, it would only be affecting effect, that one subdomain, not any of the
sibling domains, subdomains or the route. Right. If you catch a penalty on the route,
it can affect all of the sub domains, though. So my point is you want to protect the route.
That’s that’s really what I’m getting at. So yes, if you’re using self hosted site with
a branded domain, and you want to do multiple city locations, then I’ve always recommended
and to appoint guys, obviously, if you’re doing like, you know, hundred cities, I don’t
recommend having 100 WordPress installations. I don’t because that’s a pain in the ass to
manage. In that case, I would do inner pages. But I would make you know, be damn sure that
I wasn’t doing anything real spamming again, we don’t teach anything that super spammy.
For money sites, stuff apps. But anyways, right? because of that reason, and again,
knock on wood, I haven’t had any problems. But you know, I don’t I always want to reduce
potential risk. And that’s, you know, it’s about this, it’s the eggs in the basket. Unknown 1:01:16
analogy, if you put all of your eggs in one basket and you lose the basket, you’re screwed.
You don’t have any eggs left. But if you spread your eggs out across multiple baskets, then
you can lose any one of the baskets and you still got a bunch of eggs left. Does that
make sense? And that’s really what we’re talking about here. Now, if you are doing subdomain
sites, and here’s here’s the thing, guys, even if you’re not using self hosted websites,
if you got a brand new domain and you’ve got a brand and you want to start building GMB
assets to expand in other cities, you can absolutely still do it with a domain just
you can do a domain subdomain redirect to your GMB websites and use your GMB websites
as the primary domain for each location. And, in fact, again, the multiple the 20 location
project that I’m working on right now that I’m going to be sharing the method now Thursday
on the mastermind webinar. That’s what I’m doing. I used to have sub domain sites WordPress
installations for all that well for about 14 of these locations. But I’ve added six
locations in the last few months. And I honestly said I’m tired of dealing with all those WordPress
sites. So I’ve actually just transferred the website content from the WordPress sites that
the homepage website content from the WordPress sites over the GMB websites and now I have
a redirect from the sub domain to branded subdomains, to the GMB website. So all of
my citations that were built on the web for the 14 locations that I had sub domain sites
for already, it doesn’t affect any of them because the destination is still like the
target URL is still the same and the citations but it just redirects to the GMB website.
That makes sense. And so again, you don’t even need to go out and build them. I look
I’m not building WordPress sites now unless it’s a requirement by a client. Otherwise,
I’m just going to continue building Jambi assets for now because it’s working really,
really well. And I’m able to accomplish what I want which is generate leads using GMB assets
which are free and much, much, much easier to build and manage and maintain. So, but
if you are going to have a self hosted site, the root domain can be used in very strategic
ways to help promote the individual sub domain sites or locations depending on whether you’re
going to have a WordPress installation or not. And again, to go I’m going to be covering
that next Thursday. Whether I’ve got the project completed or not. I’m going to share what
I’ve got this far. Next Thursday and and the results that I’m seeing to which are pretty
impressive. So Unknown 1:03:33
okay, Mike says finally better at something better than discuss. Thanks, Mike. I’m not
sure I like it yet. But apparently, if the questions are getting through, that’s got
to be better. So anything else guys, before I wrap it up? Unknown 1:03:48
Everybody else? Unknown 1:03:50
