    Can't believe that this thread is 2 years old. I followed some key points in this thread and has truly helped more than any campy e-book or other shady personal meeting with beat "authorities" which all they do is upsell you, bait and switch.

    Backlinks is very important to SEO even moving to 2017. VUE is a perfect system but you need them backlinks. Writing articles and submitting them to music blogs has been working out for me very well. More eyes equal more conversions.

    '@Soundgine' About wordpress, if the keywords have already been taken what are the best alternative ?

    Just for example, lets say the keyword i want is "rap beats"

    Wordpress (free) allow me to register something like rapbeatsweb.wordpress.com or rapbeatsblog.wordpress.com or rapbeats95.wordpress.com

    So, is this a problem if i take one of these domains or should i find another keyword so the url match it perfectly ?

    '@mixscape' key words can't be "taken" more than one site can rank for a keyword you just may have a lot of competition for that keyword from the other sites who are also trying to rank for it now if that domain name is taken then your out of luck and have to pick a different name you can still use the keyword though

    SEO Tips for 2017

    I teach SEO and have done speaking engagements for a few Fortune companies, it's my 2nd love behind music. I wanted to share some tips you would never know worked. These SEO tips are not all directly related to your own www but may impact it indirectly.

    1. "Like" video and comments on Youtube. Google see's this as engagement and will bump you higher in Youtube's search algo. Always have your URL in the video description, not having it is a wasted opportunity.
    disliking videos and comments will not negatively affect your Youtube search results, but it also won't do anything to help.

    2. Create micro blogs that point to your own domain. Already talked about here

    3. Do not have your squeeze page stay on your page more than 10 seconds, Google will kill your pagerank, googlebots are very advanced and can surely tell. 7 seconds is a sweet spot.

    4. Check your spelling. Sounds stupid, but having misspellings will drop you down a few spacing in the Google search engine.

    5. Too many tabs. Google search favors minimal websites. Websites that have 15+ header tabs will be deemed as too confusing, that being said it's not a huge penalty. Websites like Apple get a pass, but if you have little content but have 30 header tab links, you will be docked.

    I have more, but I'm about to jump on a flight, just wanted to spread some knowledge on this great community.

    - Peace

    Creating helpful content that addresses your reader's specific problems is hands down the best SEO strategy as long as Google exists. Solve problems. Help people. This is what Google wants.

    For example, "How to add powerful bass lines to beats"

    Add a link to your product at the end of the article.

    Agree with' @Jonus'

    At a recent Google summit in Los Angeles which Soundgine was there I sat down and Google was discussing this very matter. They give preference to articles and blog posts to people trying to help and solve problems.

    So indeed, construct your blog posts to be both informative, sell your product and solve a problem, this calls for creative writing.

    '@Tristan' Would be there any additional insights regarding SEO for 2018-2019 from you?

    Also I'm thinking... am I understand everything correctly:
    1) If I have own website with beats, I need to prepare some Valuable Gift for customers, to attract them for subscription to my mailing list.
    2) If I create an e-mail campaign, I need to create 7-10 or more valuable topics to share with each contact to generate trust, relationship and then nurture the sale.
    3) Considering Google recognition of my website & SEO, it is offered to create micro blogs with relevant/helpful articles + write those topics to other blogs in order to rank website higher in search.

    Can I use the same information/topics in Gift+Mail Campaign for subscribers and the Blog Posts? Or it must be different?
    '
    @Blacksheep' What do you think about that too?
