    Why does Neil PAtel always talk in fragments and also he claims he bought themes for $10k when he had a hosting site. What he doesnt mention is where did he get that money to start with? Doesnt make any sense.

    If the there tube algorithms are what decides what gets first dibs in the recommended then I guess it doesn't make a difference hitting thumbs up on this video? Not being facetious that's a real question.

    Man I’m guilty of writing the same type of content, not on purpose, but just covering a different angle.

    In fact, one another site, I deleted some posts that were similar and just created on new super long post.

    Hey Neil , I recently purchased an expired domain with lots of banklinks and then set up a redirect from that domain to my lakstore uk website domain. Am I at risk of getting banned from google ?

    #3 Question: we have a local media company. In our blog section, we promote the top items happening in our area each week. So it's calendar based and comes out each week. Think it's ok to leave these older posts? Or what would be an appropriate strategy there?

    Thanks for the warning. What if you legitimately make a WordPress plugin, is it ok to have a link to your site from the wp store and should it be nofollow or can it be do follow? Also if you build websites for people, is it ok to have a powered by link in the footer as long as it’s nofollow? What if the website owner decides to make a link page and include one single do follow link saying something like if you like this site, we recommend you use xyzwebdesign? Thanks

    Hi Neil,
    I have a question – If I delete some of my old articles because they are not suitable for my site, is it bad practice to use a 301 redirect for the old URL to the homepage?
    Look forward to hearing your thoughts:-)

    Hi Neal, if one runs across an amazing expired domain but contains 2 or 3 spam considered casino backlinks, does the whole site lose it's value or it can that site being that its now in new hands be cleaned up to benefit for the backlink value and profile it does contain? thank you!

    I've got a site that provides a particular type of training in all 50 states. We have a page for each state. The content is mostly the same on each page, but the name of the state is different. The content is maybe 2 paragraphs. Will Google consider that duplicate content?

    24SevenMarketing says:

    My client is building a 25,000 square foot showroom for home improvement contractors … plumber … electrician … tree service … solar energy … room additions … etc. There will be a total of 30 to 40 tenants plus a mega kitchen and bath showroom. I will build a website for the business with a page to promote each tenant. With the intent to get a top ranking in Google local listings for each service category.

    It will take about 9 months for the building to be ready. I want to start building out the website now using generic location-based names for the different tenants (Tampa Plumber … Tampa Painter … etc.) … I will have a unique local phone number for each business category … and a separate suite number. I want to get this built out and use the leads generated as leverage to get tenants signed up while we do the buildout.

    Will these work? Will Google slap us because we have only generic business names? (We can set up a marketing LLC for each generic business if that will help legitimize us with Google.) While the construction is going on I would like to use our construction office as the address since we can't receive mail at the building until the construction is done…will this be possible or will Google reject 40 businesses operating out of a small office?

    Any suggestions you can make will be VERY much appreciated. Once this prototype is operating my client plans to expand this concept nationwide with 500 or more locations eventually….so I am looking at a huge amount of work potentially.
