Looking for geo proxies to use with Advanced Web Ranking

I have been using trusted proxies that offers geo located proxies and parallel proxies for quickly set up rank reports. I am quite pleased with it.

Update:

I am not using AWR Cloud instead of the desktop version. It saves the cost on the proxies but it costs more… Your take.

Best CSS framework for SEO

Everybody knows it is more flexible, better coding to write CSS yourself.

  • But is it more efficient?

I am very bad at coding CSS.

  • How can a grid help me out?
  • Which CSS Framework should I chose SEOwise?

My requirements:

I am looking for a grid that is SEO friendly:Where I can push upp or down the different modules so that the navigation appears after the main content of the page.

I need a good control over the Font css.

The nominees are:

Two frameworks stands out:  Blueprint and YUI frameworks followed by960 CSS http://960.gs/ (less known but that might be more SEO friendly).

YUI framework:
+ Template columns are source-order independent, so you can put your most important content first in the markup layer for improved accessibility and search engine optimization (SEO).

- Does YUI framework provide us with semantic CSS?

Get the backlinks of your site through Yahoo Api

Update (feb 2012): Yahoo site explorer has been closed due to the cooperation of Bing and Yahoo search. The service has been replaced by bing webmastertool API. More details on how to create a BING WMT request here.

Caution:There seems to be a limitation of 1000 BLs per domain && it seems that you can only see the backlinks from the site that has been verified in Bing Webmaster Tool: a real turn off to the API…

Through the study of the backlinks of your site or the one of your competitor, you can tell many things:

  • Who gives you natural backlinks,
  • which kind of sites do they have,
  • what demografics the web master belong to…

But to make a thorough study over time you need to start somewhere and scrap your (competitors) backlinks;

You can do it by scraping yahoo site explorer or in a more elegant way through Yahoo API. Lets try the API solution http://developer.yahoo.com/search/siteexplorer/V1/inlinkData.html

$query  = "languagekompis.com";
$entire_site  = "";   // "1" to provide results for the entire site
$omit_inlinks = "domain";
$linksperrequest = 10;   // 100 is max value
$startposition = 1;
 
$request_url = sprintf("%s?appid=%s&query=%s&entire_site=%s&omit_inlinks=%s&output=php", $api_service_url, $apiid, urlencode($query), $entire_site, $omit_inlinks);

unserialize() the Yahoo response into an array $data["ResultSet"]["Result"]

   // Handle errors
   if (($content = file_get_contents($requrl)) === FALSE ) {

   // Unserialize data from response
   $data = unserialize($content);

   }
 
   // Extracting each link from array
   for ($i=0; $i<sizeof($data["ResultSet"]["Result"]); $i++) {
      $url = $data["ResultSet"]["Result"][$i]["Url"];
      $title = $data["ResultSet"]["Result"][$i]["Title"];
 
      echo '<p><a href="'.$url.'">'.$title.'</a></p>';
 
 
   }
 
   // End loop if no more results
   if (sizeof($data["ResultSet"]["Result"]) < $linksperrequest) break;
}
 
?>

done. Get the title and more from the yahoo response! Yahoo api

Why should I be an SEO Specialist?

6 reasons why I could be an SEO Specialist.

  • I have a Master of Sc. in computer network which I believe can give me the analytical skills required for this position.
  • I have for a year now, closely monitored the analytics of my site, proposed bounce rate analysis, carried out the “on site” optimization and suggested new keywords to target.
  • In 2008, I developed a language exchange community from scratch. I used basic “on site” optimization techniques. Today the site ranks for competitive keywords and the community counts more than 1800 members
    Through this project, I also manage a small team of volunteers that help me develop this project.
    Daily, I use tools such as Google analytics, site catalyst, Google Webmaster Tools, Semrush to analyze web traffic and fine tune my site.
  • Business minded? My freelance consultancy experience taught the basic rules of running a business: Respecting my customers and their money. It taught me that they were no shortcuts, and that it was better to chose experience over money. I am also graduated of an MBA specialized in market finance…
  • I am entrepreneurial and will gladly share some example of the project I have been working on that should benefit the company.
