Goal for today: SEO Image fix. Bounce Rate fix. Outbound links fix.
^^ these Day 9 fixes are super quick to do by following my recipe. Otherwise, it would have taken you entire months to do these things manually or figure them out. Most people still don’t know about Google Analytics errors with time on page and how it can be fixed. This is a super big secret I’m sharing with you, because you’ve made the commitment to join the 14 Days Journey to Better Rankings.
Also: the http to https fix that you’ve seen earlier on. The ways to build your strategy and the steps you need to take… I mean: I’ve charged thousands upon thousands of dollars in consulting fees until now to deliver the same things you find for free in these 14 Days. You get them only because you’ve made the commitment to follow through. This is just how much I want to see you succeed on your Journey!
Google Analytics Time on Page and Bounce Rate
- fix with this 3rd party and free plugin for WordPress. (if you haven’t done it already on Day 6)
Fix your site’s outbound links by making them no-follow in a flash.
You’ve seen that one of the important ranking factors is to NOT throw away the Authority you’ve put so much effort into building.
It’s right there in the Focus Pages section. Click on that. Read the task.
Now, you can go and do all the work of setting the no-follow attribute to external links that go to websites you don’t own. Of course, I wouldn’t do this if I were you, because it takes too much time and it’s too easy to make mistakes.
The plugin will turn all outbound links into no-follow, so that you don’t pass your site’s authority to those other sites.
You can always select to place exceptions in that plugin, so in case you do want to have “do-follow” for a couple of links, you’ll still be able to make that happen.
We’re using that plugin ourselves. We’re using the free version.
Don’t pay attention to WP that says it hasn’t been updated. It works really well.
Of course, if you don’t like the automation, this other plugin will make the manual work easier for your writers or your editors.
Hours upon hours upon hours of work have just been avoided
Great! You’ve used these important things from the recipe. You’ve saved a lot of time AND you’ve been speeding like a hyper-car to better rankings.
By now you will have fixed a lot of RED elements from Focus Pages.
Let’s turn another red element to green.
You can look into the column with the SEO Image.
And if you want the theory you can read it from the tasks.
Actually, all you really have to do right now is follow the red elements, click on them, read the tasks and implement!
Once you think you’ve completed the tasks, make a request for a re-Audit of your Focus Page.
REMEMBER: give it time after hitting that button. There are many data being processed in the background. It’s phenomenal how many processes are started on our end to check all the ranking factors.
With today’s recipe, you most probably made Outbound links and SEO Image GREEN.
Come back tomorrow for more.. as the Journey continues!
