An exact match domain is where a domain name matches a targeted search term exactly. For example, for someone selling blue widgets in New Zealand the exact match domain would be bluewidgets.co.nz. These type of domain names have frequently been used in SEO strategies as having the EMD gave a huge boost to rankings for the target keyword, although recently this SEO tactic has been devalued.
With the demand for ‘instant’ answers from potential customers rising in the social media age, having a website that offers enquiry forms is increasingly seen as a hassle with time delays in response causing lost sales for businesses. These demands have seen a rise in the number of websites offering ‘Live Chat’ and for good reason with some studies showing up to a 31% increase in the number of leads generated when using the service.
The concept of broken link building is not a new one, but is one getting mentioned more frequently on forums and websites in the SEO world. It is a white hat technique which offers a number of advantages, and is able to be scaled relatively easily.
Essentially, the strategy involves:
- Locating high quality resource sites in your / your clients industry.
- Scanning these sites for broken links.
- Contacting the owner of the site letting them know about the broken link and suggesting they update it to link to a relevant article on your website.
