20 Oct Topic clusters The Next Evolution of SEO
A good piece of advise if you are thinking of #bluehost. I started hosting with them in may 2013. Just after a couple of months, my websites were down for more than 3 days. The only way to communicate with them was through Facebook. It may happen with any server, but their inability to communicate with the clients but only through Facebook is really sad. I started getting problems with my emails slowly. The emails from different domains/ different email accounts will stay in the outbox for hours before leaving. I sent them emails about it. They will reply back to me but the thread will be missing. They will keep asking silly question in their reply after a day or two. I never had any email problem sorted. I moved 5 domains to new hosting. I just do not want any other to get into this nightmare; hence wasting my time and writing this. WHen you google for #bluehost Bad service, there are many Davids, and Sharma’s talking so nicely about #bluehost in their blogs aor Hosting review sites. Beware!
Topic clusters: The Next Evolution of SEO
As we all know by now, SEO is a tricky thing that keeps changing. What are topic clusters and how do you build them for your or your client’s site? Today, Cereal Entrepreneur has you covered.
Basically, topic clusters are the segments of content you find on your website. Topic clusters go hand-in-hand with content marketing and make everything that much more searchable.
Creating a Topic Cluster Plan:
First step is to ask “What are the 5-10 problems that my company’s buyer persona has that we help them through?” This is how you identify what your clusters are.
If you already have content on your website, go through your top performing pieces and organize them into different “buyer” problems. These will be your pillar content, which will connect to all sub-content related to that topic
Creating a Cluster:
Once pillar topic has been decided you want to create cluster topics ( blogs or pieces of content} that branch out of of your pillar topic via an internal hyperlink in both pages.
Keyword research is a great way to determine which content is best suited for your cluster
Make a list of subcontent related to your pillar topic and keep track of the cluster your creating.
If you website is already rich with content keyword research tools like ubersuggest and serpstat will find related content and keywords that link back to the pillar topic.
SEO lead generation will start to take effect immediately.
