Dearest Compatriots of the Link Empire,
It's my pleasure to announce that the Link Emperor office has been full of nothing but hustle as of late, in order to bring you only the finest updates and hopefully cause your hearts to collectively jump.
This is an important update, and includes a number of varying topics.
1) One-Time Blasts Are Now Available for Purchase!
If you'd like to give certain keywords an extra boost, or try out some of our fancier link building orders such as the pyramid-style mixed blasts now available from various vendors, you can easily do so within your account by going to the Link Building > Service Allocations tab and clicking the "Order One-Time Link Blast" button.
You specify the keywords, and you can choose to pay either with a credit card, paypal, or by using some of your account's remaining credits that are as-of-yet unspent for the month. For that reason, if you're interested in managing your link building more closely, you can most certainly spend your credits individually this way.
We're really excited about this new feature and have become somewhat addicted to ordering link blasts for our own sites lately. Check it out and let us know what you think!
2) On-Page SEO Audits!
Being a former accountant myself, the word audit REALLY gets me going!
Just kidding. But this is a tool that's actually quite useful. Kevin's been working on this for a while, but up to this point, we've only checked whether or not your keywords existed on the landing pages that you were attempting to build links to. Well, gone are those sad times, my friend.
Today is a new day, and with it comes a host of on-site checks that will let you know if we've found any blatant SEO no-no's, or even just a few things that you might want to give some thought to regarding your sites.
Here are some of the reminders we now let you know about:
- Site does not have a proper canonical URL redirect (301 redirect from non-www to www or vice versa)
Site does not have a contact page that we could find
Site does not have a robots.txt file in the root
Site does not have a sitemap.xml file in the root
Lander does not have a keyword that you're trying to link build to on the page anywhere
Lander does not have a <h1> tag on the page
Lander does not have a <title> tag
Lander does not have a <meta> description tag
Lander does not have enough content (> 200 words)
Lander has a <title> tag with the same content as another lander
Lander has a <meta> description tag with the same content as another lander
Lander redirects to another page
Over the past week or so, we've added a few new link building services and also dropped the prices of a few of our most popular services!
- BacklinksGenie orders went from 4,000 to 3,000 credits for any of their services
- Dripable Profile & Blog Comment Links dropped from 500 to 400 credits per blast.
5) We Will Have a Booth at PubCon in Las Vegas from November 8-10th!
That's right. Link Emperor is stepping out of your computer monitor and into the real world for a very brief period of time. If you plan on attending PubCon, stop by our booth and introduce yourself! We're way more fun than anybody else at PubCon, that's for sure :)
Well, that's about it for this update.
Til next time,
Bobby & Kevin
