  1. I don't think I'm alone in opening every page that interests me in a search result, all at once. After I open the all the pages in a new tab, it might be quite awhile before I look at any one page, depending on the richness of all the other results. Am I right to believe that Google's metrics count that time as actual viewing time? I imagine they must!

  2. Folks, part of the Google business model is to squelch independent sites and make it hard to find without going through some kind of directory page first. If you have a main stream business like a hair salon or an auto repair garage, business, Google will keep you out of sight no matter what you do,

    I wonder how much Google, in respect to Backlinko, appreciates us sitting on our butts for 10 minutes watching this.

    Enough to make it worthwhile for this guy, among others, to conduct these filler-stuffed videos.

    That's the real lesson here.

  9. You are doing well. For the keyword: 'youtube seo backlinko' you currently rank #5. I can show you what other keywords you rank for. Would you like to know?

  10. As I gone through your site backlinko, there is no search option. So is there any benefit od no search box. is it ????? Please answer.

  11. You got two seconds to convince the reader to read your stuff. But when your page take longer than 2 seconds to load, it's now a, "hey hey hey wait reader, my page is about to finish loading, and the result will stu…", too late, they're gone. Pagespeed should of been in this video.
