Content / SEO Tips & Tutorials

Find the perfect page to build links on

Site-wide linking merely passes any more credit to the linked pages than single page linking. Linking from the homepage of a site isn’t always that sweetest after all. So what we got? The answer is to find the perfect pages to build links on.

There’re essentially 2 sorts of pages we’d love to have links to ours.

  1. Relevant pages.
  2. Powerful pages.

Okay, now you sit down scouring the directories and search engine results for sites in your industry, preparing to send a request for links or simply, offer to buy one. Isn’t it obvious that it’s most favorable to have a link on the homepage of those sites? Actually, no.

Even with an relevant site, you should take some time to find the page that passes the most relevancy to the linked page of yours. How to do this? Simple. Query Google by the phrase targeted terms , the page comes out first is what you are looking for – the most relevant to your targeted terms and should be the one that links back to your landing page.

To find the most powerful page of a site, you cannot rely on Google any more. It has a web wide fame of being fickle and I suggest jumpy webmasters stay away from them. 🙂 Anyway, simply feed it with the phrase of on Yahoo and the first page coming out is the baby -  the most powerful page of the site. It is wise to buy another link from this page after pursuing relevancy, especially if it is way more powerful than the rest.

Stop diluting the page theme, but siloing

Link(v.), only when it’s absolutely necessary, especially on your premier pages (landing pages from search engines) that have a touching relation with the sales. Every offsite link you make on the page, and even onsite links to other pages, dilutes the theme you intend to rank for in search engines, thus effectively bringing down the performance of targeted terms.

When you have to link, however, make sure that the linked page is as relevant as possible with the linking page. While doing a deep optimization of certain pages, reducing the number of irrelevant links on those pages as many as possible is definitely a good idea. Therefore, you should deflate the site navigation as well as other unnecessary link spots as thin as possible and construct vertical linking structures for each targeted theme while maintaining a site-wide theme that’s more general in niche.

By vertical linking structure, or siloing, I mean within each of the more specifically targeted themes under the site theme, you will link similar pages together but avoid cross-linking among themes targeted for different terms, even if they are related to each other.

To gain further insight, you may want to give Garywolf’s SEO Siloing and Bruce Clay’s Theming through Siloing a read.

What is PHP framework & Who are the Best PHP Frameworks?

Basically, PHP frameworks are programming layers that are promoted above PHP itself and that are much easier and quicker to deploy, normalizing and packaging 80% of the routines one is expected to work on without them, such as database interfaces. Therefore they free you from the chores of coding from very scratch line by line and do the common tasks that are shared among most of the projects for you.

Like many other frameworks, PHP frameworks such as the Code Igniter and CakePHP are built upon the MVC model. MVC stands for Model, View and Controller.

Model is essentially a prototype of all similar entities bearing shared descriptive properties. In the database, a table can almost always be interpreted as a model.

View prescribes how the data(models) are presented(in the browser, as webpages for example). In most cases, a view is a webpage template.

Controller is the control hub that can be directly manipulated to control other stuff, namely models and views. It’s where the logic lies in your PHP applications.

3 major PHP frameworks:

1. Code Igniter, is well documented and has a shorter learning curve, thus more appealing to beginners.
2. CakePHP, is more of cup of tea for veteran PHP developers. As intuitive to use as CI, but not as well documented and the learning curve might be a little too long.
3. Smarty, I don’t know much about this one and only tried it once. It’s more like a templating system than a framework, I think. If you don’t plan to add registration functionalities, session management and things like that, you can go with Smarty, though CI and cake can also do a good job in templating.

Update: There’s also a 4th greatly renowned php framework that is Zend Framework. All seems well done and I’m gonna try it out for one of my recent projects soon.
