Comment on SEO Tutorial by SEO Gold Coast Services.

Glad to hear your search engine traffic is recovering, the adult niche is a great niche to be in for high traffic, sex/porn etc… will never loose it’s appeal :-)

The soft 301 redirect of 404 error pages is a useful SEO feature for recovering lost SEO benefit and visitors. If you have high traffic 404 traffic or highly relevant anchor text of links to a 404 page (deleted page) you should try to 301 redirect to the most suitable webpage.

Let’s say I deleted a webpage /2013-seo-tutorial/ with title tag “2013 SEO Tutorial” and it’s got some high quality backlinks using anchor text “2013 SEO Tutorial”. The 2013 part won’t be that important now, but the SEO Tutorial phrase is really important.

The soft 301 of 404 Stallion feature will direct all the SEO benefit of the deleted 2013 SEO Tutorial webpage to my sites home page which isn’t specifically about SEO tutorial. If I manually added a 301 redirect of /2013-seo-tutorial/ to my most relevant page to SEO Tutorial: that webpage will benefit from the link benefit AND the anchor text of any backlinks.

In a perfect SEO world recover the most important SEO benefit via manual 301 redirects and what’s left will be automatically recovered via the soft 301 redirect of 404 error pages feature to the home page.

I guess you found my comment How to Turn WordPress Comments On Sitewide

In Stallion Responsive 8.2 update (hope to release this month: October 2014) I’ve added a Google search page to the main “Stallion Theme” options page so Stallion user can search from under their Dashboard for relevant webpages indexed by Google under this domain. Added the same custom Google search form on the Recent Comments page (this link is on the main navigation menu as well “Recent Discussions”).

I’ve wrote thousands of comments answering SEO questions and thanks to the Stallion SEO Super Comments Feature they are indexed by Google and other search engines as independent webpages, so can be found for relevant searches using Google.

With Stallion creating comments can add some series traffic to your site, I love this SEO feature because I don’t feel like I’m ‘wasting’ my time answering comments. With most (maybe all other) WordPress Themes comments don’t add any SEO benefit to a site, with Stallion they can add a lot of SEO benefit to the article they are on and increase search engine traffic in their own right.

Makes writing support comments more than a chore to show you offer good product support, they generate new search engine traffic. Makes writing comments enjoyable, I know every comment I create could increase search engine traffic, especially for long tail SERPs.

This comment I’ve titled “Search Engine Traffic Recovery”, the Stallion SEO Super Comment which Google can index will have a title tag “Search Engine Traffic Recovery”.

On the SEO Tutorial article this comment is associated with will now have two links with anchor text “Search Engine Traffic Recovery”, this is relevant to some of the SERPs the SEO tutorial article targets, specifically Search Engine Optimization Tutorial SERPs.

Two of the four keywords “Search Engine” from this comments title aids the Search Engine Optimization Tutorial SERPs directly. And the comment might generate traffic from SERPs like Search Engine Traffic Recovery, or maybe will help with a SERP like Search Engine Traffic Tutorial.

The comment also links back to the SEO tutorial article with anchor text “SEO Tutorial” and an image link with alt text “SEO Tutorial 2014” (one of the Stallion keyphrases). All adds to the on-site SEO supporting the SEO tutorial SERPs.

I also use comments for adding what are short articles (short for me anyway :-)) that target long tail keyword SERPs like the SERP Long Tail Keyword SERPs: yes, top 10 for that Google SERP with a comment :-)
