Get Our New SEO Extension Before Anyone Else

A couple of weeks ago, in our members-only Facebook Group, we shared a new SEO extension we've been working on for the past few months.

It allows you to massively speed up day to day SEO work and includes a few features you won't find in any other extension.

Here's the link to the group post - https://www.facebook.com/groups/seoblueprint/permalink/484041405617336/ - where you can find more information.

Thanks to your amazing feedback, we've been adding a ton of features and just went live with version 1.1.

We plan to share this with the world in a few weeks, but would love to have you give it a try before anyone else.

(It should also help de-clutter your bookmarks bar a little as well).

Auditing a New York Photographers Website (New Video)

It's 2020 and we plan to roll out just as many (if not a lot more) updates than we did in 2019.

We're still working on a lot of the private video audits we promised behind the scenes, but a few people did give us permission to put their video audit inside the course.

One person who gave us permission is New York Photographer James Maher.

You can find his audit here: https://seoblueprint.com/website-of-a-new-york-photographer/

Note: We didn't send an email about this as it's a smaller update, though we do plan to add another video tomorrow.

We have a lot of huge updates planned for 2020, and I can't wait to share them all with you.

We're Giving Away Up to $1,000 in SEO Tool Prizes

As we've just closed the doors on our second ever opening, I thought it would be the perfect time to run a contest I've always wanted to be part of myself.

We're giving away up to $1,000 in SEO tool prizes (split among four winners), and in return, all you have to do is find something quirky or weird about the site I share tomorrow.

This is not a competition about who can write the most or who can spend the most time on a website: It's just a bit of fun, giving you a reason to put some of the on-site modules to the site and bringing our amazing community together.

The contest starts in 24 hours, and you can learn more about it in our Facebook group, here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/seoblueprint/permalink/451823655505778/

Even if you're brand new to SEO, you stand a chance of winning this one.

If all goes well, I would love to run more of these fun contests in the future, so let's see how it goes.

Remember: We want to build an elite and exclusive community, but we also want to be free from elitism and judgement, so if you wish to join our Facebook group with a pen name (as long as Facebook approve your account) that's totally fine.

Auditing a WordPress Plugin Provider (And Using Sitebulb on Screen)

If you've watched a few of my on-site audits already, then you'll know I'm a huge fan of ScreamingFrog.

It saves a lot of time when auditing a site, and helps you uncover issues you probably wouldn't have found otherwise.

One tool I'm a fan of, but haven't yet used on a site audit (at least not a recorded one), is Sitebulb.

Like ScreamingFrog, it's a premium site auditing tool designed to help you uncover problems. It does look quite different though:


Sitebulb is also set-up very differently to SF and takes a while to get used to, but I thought you might like to see how it works, so used it for my most recent update.

Here's the link: https://seoblueprint.com/analysing-a-wordpress-plugin/

I really hope you enjoy this one. Lots more on the way!

A New Video on Mobile Auditing (With Two Real-World Examples)

When most of your website traffic likely comes from people using a mobile or tablet device, it's important to ensure there aren't any obvious issues for the majority of your site users.

That's why in today's video not only will I show you how to look for issues, but also give two examples of issues I came across in the real-world.

(This was also my first time recording videos directly on my phone and embedding them into a normal video, which was fun).

You can find the video here: https://seoblueprint.com/site-on-a-mobile-device/

With the great rollout of mobile-first indexing, how your site appears and how it differs from your desktop experience is critical to keep in mind.

We will have some more videos on this for that exact reason, but I plan to share something a little more exciting in our next update :)

A New Worksheet for How to Act Towards Thin Content

One of the longest videos in the program - and perhaps the longest in the on-site SEO module - is my guide on how to act towards "thin" or "unnecessary" website pages.

At the request of Dane (Thanks Dane!), we've just finished putting together a 16-page worksheet to go with the video as well.

You'll find it directly under the video, here: https://seoblueprint.com/act-upon-thin-or-unnecessary-pages/

I hope this makes life easier for you!

An Interesting On-Site "Issue" I've Been Seeing Lately

One of the things I love the most about SEO is that I continually find new things that affect a large number of pages on one site, that have never been an issue on sites I've analysed in the past.

Today's new video covers a specific example, referring to the character people use before adding their branding in title tags.

I can't say too much since these updates are available to read by non-members as well (though the content isn't), but I think you'll find this one interesting.

Here's the link: https://seoblueprint.com/spacing-issue-in-titles/

I really hope you like this one.

A 30-Minute Video on What to Do With Thin / Unnecessary Pages

Throughout the on-site SEO module, I've shown a number of different ways to find pages on your site (or your clients sites) that probably shouldn't exist.

At times, I've also included a number of hints as to what to do about those pages; such as sharing fixes for the "pages as images" issue which is common on sites running on WordPress.

Thanks to some feedback from Kim and Abhishek, I realised we should definitely have a single, in-depth video on what to do with the majority of "thin" or "strange" pages you come across.

I've just went live with a new video on exactly that: https://seoblueprint.com/act-upon-thin-or-unnecessary-pages/

This video was 40 minutes long before I cut it down to 30, but I like to think there's no fluff and it's full of actionable advice.

Just to make your life easier, you'll find clickable chapters in the play bar so you can skip to the sections most relevant to you.

I really hope you enjoy this one!

P.S. If you're reading this as an email subscriber, I actually made two other updates in the last 48 hours that I didn't email you about.

I try to only email you when I have something big to say, but you can click on What's new in the top right of the page after you log-in, and you'll see what else we've added.

New Audit of 'LiberalArtsColleges' in the Audits Module

Note: Due to this being a smaller update I'm not emailing it out to update subscribers.

I've just went live with an audit of a website in the education space, where I found a few opportunities for improvement on their site.

You can find the audit here: https://seoblueprint.com/analysing-a-site-covering/

I actually gave quite a long update to the sites owner in the comments with some feedback on why his homepage may not be ranking as well as it should.

It might give you some food for thought for the projects you're working on.

He's a really nice guy, so I hope we can help him with this one!

New Worksheet for 'Key Pages Losing Search Traffic' Video

Note: This is a smaller update so we did not send this out as an email to subscribers.

While creating the video on What to Check on Key Pages Which Have Lost Search Traffic, I realised I should probably create a worksheet to go with it.

This was then requested twice in the comments, so we have now put that worksheet live on the site.

You can find it underneath the video, and it looks something like this:

To try to be even more useful, and to hopefully make your life easier, we've also added chapter links to the video, as you can see in the screenshot below:

This means you don't have to watch the whole video again to see what was said about a particular check.

The worksheet also contains a time mention for each specific check as well.
