    Hi Neil! Is it good for SEO to transform video transcript into blog article (text remains actually the same)? I am afraid it can be seen as a duplicate. Thanks!

    Neil, dude, as always, thank you!! Could you please tell me if the below strategy is ok? Sounds like it would be…

    I am looking to consolidate 2 websites to 1 (easier to manage). So I'm wanting to copy the relevant blogs from the 1 site and post these on the other site. I will redirect the 1 site to the other, but ultimately I want to take down that site.

    Brief Background: I'm a metal musician, and my artist page is the one I'm keeping and putting everything on. The other site was for guitar players (writing content based on my YouTube guitar related videos). The thing is, most of my music fans are guitar players, so it doesn't really make sense to have 2 sites. For some reason I have been struggling with this decision for a long time, but I'm ready to move forward…sometimes we let emotions get in the way of what we really need to do!

    Thank you again!! (sorry for the little book here…)

    Great SEO hack, thanks for sharing! That leaves me wondering…I have some strong YouTube videos that rank on the first page on Google search for certain keywords. If I create an article around it, embed the video as you suggested, is there a chance that not only my videos rank on the first page, but also my website with the blog article about the keyword? Is that something that you recommend? If yes, can I just use the videos transcript and make it, say, "readable" and fun to read? PS: On my website, I am using a java script that buffers embedded videos only if users click on it. Does the video embed need to be via iframe or is it "okay" for Google to have the java script embed?

    Thanks for sharing your knowledge!

    Hi Neil, at about the 4:00 mark you talk about having social videos on your pages not getting Google love..

    Is it ok to embeds YouTube videos on your blog posts for Google love? Basically writing content from the video but also using the video as a supplemental/addition to your post (maybe towards the end)?

    Thanks for the insights. What are SEO implications of pasting your same content into two different blog posts on your site. Like if the same three paragraphs of text apply to multiple different posts you have so you past into both. Ex: maximize your trip to Staples Center and a Maximize your visit to LA Coliseum post and pasting same "Downtown LA attractions" section into both posts. Will google punish this? A way to have this duplicate content without being hurt by Google?

    Excellent Video
    What about E-Commerce sites…
    I have an E-Commerce site, I can't get unique content about product descriptions.
    I copy content from products official website with referral links, I handle the duplicate content issue with YOST SEO tool, but it does not work for me. I am still getting 40%+ duplicate content. how can I solve my issue? (How to make the uploaded content unique?)

    Hey Neil! I am about to release my new WordPress website with 7 blog posts. I had a previous website just for testing and stuff which include 2 of the 2 out of the 7 blog posts I have. I want to change domain but will my new site get any problem for duplicate content as my previous site contains 2 of my blogs?

    Thanks, Neil, I can confirm that your explanation was right. I have a blog about lyric and it's 100 percent copy-paste content from another site, yet I don't link the source where I get the lyric. However, I provide more value like embedding video related to the content and creating a picture whit song lyric inside it. That's has incrasing my rank significantly since other competitors don't give any value more than text-based post.

    Hey Neil,
    Thank you once again, so another great video.
    I am a little confused however with the whole putting videos on your own website.
    Before watching this video I had planned on putting all my video content that I have on YouTube and other social media platforms that has all been transcripted on to my website, to try and get some more Google juice.
    But then when you said you did it, but out no follows on them I nearly fell of my chair. But then you when Adam said that he did you, but that he just wrote a post about it as well, you said it was a great idea and to make sure you have the video linked in there.
    So mate, I'm confused. If it is a good process to have then why don't you do it with your stuff?
    Also a second question for you (if I can)
    If we are embedding videos to our website for which we have content written on that page as well about that video, then are we better off using YouTube as the platform to host the video, or one of the other video hosting sites, like Vimeo or Wisteria?
    Regards Ben

    What’s the best method for using other people’s content for your own. Is it just simply putting it in your own words and citing their article as the source?

    I'm an Adult Affiliate, none of this stuff works, Google doesn't rank my affiliate content at all, it all gets indexed but zero clicks. I used to earn a living from doing this 10 years ago, I used to be in the top 5 results for 2 term adult related keywords but now there's no chance.

    And also I think you forgot to mention Neil, that one way of overcoming duplicate content issues is by using the cross domain canonical from the third party site back to yours

    Great content Neil! One small comment. Your push notifications are not easy to see on my phone, since the font is black and there's not much contrast with darkish backgrounds! Maybe you could have a look at this 🙂
    Keep the good work!

    Hey Neil i admit that you're the one who can lead a community towards success to which i greatly admire you but i watched your video talking about landing pages and had a question that is bombarding my mind – can he show us an example of landing page that converts much higher than the average?!

    Hey Neil! I was wondering how you feel about online courses. I’ve been reading this is a booming industry, but wanted to know where you see online courses going in the future? Will this eventually die, or will online courses be the new form of online education? Thanks Neil. And btw, where do you buy your clothes?

    Thanks for the great info! Question I’ve got a proposal from an SEO company that wants to do W3C validation on my home page. Does that really matter for SEO?
