Hey folks, If you are familiar with seo then you must have heard that content is king. Well here at Talk Internet Community Development we think Good Content is King in 2016! It is not about how much content you have on your site, how many articles, etc. It is about the articles you have and how they are being viewed and shared! You are better off having a single article that is getting hundreds of shares across Facebook, Twitter, Reddit and other social sites than to have 1,000 articles on your site that have high bounce rates.

What can you do? Get rid of your poor performing content and focus on the good stuff! Make catchy titles and helpful articles that people will want to share!

Best of luck with SEO in 2016!

seo ranking in 2015

The Most Vital 2015 SEO Ranking Factors

The main seo ranking factor you should address first in 2015 is linking. I am talking about domain level linking and page level linking! Quality links from trusted pages are still what is probably the most important linking factor in 2015.

The text ranking factor and probably the most important after linking is yes, you guessed it! keywords! These days though having good keywords is not enough. You really need good quality content!

Ofcourse there are many other factors such as page load, traffic and engagament, branding and social metrics but if you get your linking going well and you have good content you should be off to a good start!

Soon we will all be worrying about 2016 seo ranking factors!

Is your root htaccess effecting your add on domain in Godaddy?

Filed under: Search Engine Optimization,Talk Development Blog,Web Development — TalkHosting @ 6:50 PM

The problem is you have a brand new server at godaddy and you set your main site up as the primary domain. It is running fine and everything is great..then you try to move your Vbulletin site over to an add on domain and bam.. It doesn’t work! The problem is that your root htacess is impacting all of your addon domains!

There is a fix for this I came up with! The solution is to use a dummy domain as your primary domain! Any other domain just add as an add on domain and each one will have it’s own htaccess!

Pretty simple solution! If you need any help though feel free to post here or to contact us and we will take care of it for you!

Filed under: Search Engine Optimization,Talk Development Blog — TalkHosting @ 11:36 AM

The latest Google search engine Panda update is a killer for many sites. This one appears to be rolling out slowly and impacting many, many sites.

Have you been impacted by this yet? If your search rank has been impacted in a negative way that is not much you can do about it until the next refresh. I would recommend taking some of the following steps now so you will be ready when Google does the next refresh.

# – Incoming Links

Make sure you use Google Webmaster Tools to see if your incoming links are from good sites.

# – Content

Try to have good quality and original content. remove junk pages on your site that get no traffic.

# – Errors – Fix errors on your site. Go through everything to be sure you do not have broken links, images, etc.

# – Is your site mobile friendly? This is a major ranking factor so fix fix this if you have not already!

# – Page Load – get your page load time down as low as possible. This is also a ranking factor.

There is much, much more to do! For professional help contact us and we will get you ready for the next update!

January Vbulletin Security Patches

Filed under: Talk Development Blog,Web Development — TalkHosting @ 7:23 PM

Posted at Vbulletin: There are patches for all 3 Vbulletin Versions! Have us take care of this for you! Don’t wait!

A security issue has been reported to us that affects vBulletin 4. We have released security patches for vBulletin 4.2.2 to account for this vulnerability. The issue may allow attackers to perform CSRF exploits via the Moderator Control Panel. It is recommended that all users update as soon as possible. If you’re using a version of vBulletin 4 older than 4.2.2, it is recommended that you upgrade to that version as soon as possible.

You can download the patch for your version at Vbulletin!

To install the patch, download the appropriate files for your version of vBulletin 4 then upload all files found within the zip file. Make sure to overwrite the existing files on your server.

If you’re using a version prior to 4.2.2, then you should follow standard upgrade procedures.

Patches available:
vBulletin 4.2.2 PL 4

vBulletin 4.2.3. Beta has been updated with the fix.

VBulletin 4 Optimization for Fast Page Load

Filed under: Search Engine Optimization,Talk Development Blog — TalkHosting @ 1:51 AM

Here are some simple tips to get your pages loading quickly and to save server resources. There are many features that can be turned off to save resources and I would keep most of these off if you have a larger forum.

Here are some basics:

# – Never use the no cache option. Using this means the header will be reloaded every time someone visits your site even if they are a member refreshing the page.

# – Keep GZip on and set to 1. Never compress more than the number 1 setting.

# – Keep your cache time set very high for static images, etc. Mine are set to 2500. An image that does not change does not to be reloaded often.

# – Keep whos online off and set to random display. Disable spider display and guest display.

# – Turn off who read a post, whos been online in the last 24 hours, thread checks, reputation, subscription, etc – Basically just go through the options and disable features that will add queries unless it is a feature vital to your site.

Incorporate the following into your htaccess. This will help with static images and even security.

Vbulletin Basics – Getting Started

Filed under: Talk Development Blog — TalkHosting @ 6:51 PM

Before you build a successful Vbulletin site you need to know the basics.

 

#1 – Vbulletin Installation

Vbulletin installation is normally very simple. Just follow this basic procedure.

#1 – Create a new database on your server and mark down the database name, username and password

#2 – Unzip your Vbulletin package and open the file config.php.new which resides in your uploads/includes/ directory

Edit your config file to match your database info and save as php which means removing the .new from the end

#3 – Upload everything in your uploads directory to your servers public folder

#4 – go to the following url   – Yourdomain/install/install.php and enter your customer number and run the install..

 

#2 – Vbulletin Set Up

Coming Soon

Welcome

Filed under: Talk Development Blog — TalkHosting @ 12:37 AM

Hey everyone,

I recently closed my last blog(Webdevoman) due to spam getting out of hand. I just didn’t not have time to maintain that site and it got out of control. I have decided to try to keep this one updated instead from now on.

This is my personal blog where I will bring up topics on web design, development, seo and even some technology on Android and other devices that interest me. this is not a blog to discuss customer work. That is all done through email. If you have a request please use the form feature and I will reply as soon as possible.

Thanks!
