    Sir, I have a question is link building is still the most important part of SEO?

    • Matthew Woodward
      May 3rd, 2021 at 9:53 am

      Link building alone can’t deliver good SEO results. To get results you need a great SEO foundation. Your site needs to be fast, easily navigable, user-friendly, mobile-friendly etc… On top of that, you need unique and fresh content. Once you got that right, you can think about link building!

    Thank you, Matthew for sharing such a nice information. I am new in SEO and market my new website. How can I increase Domain Rating of my website?

    • Matthew Woodward
      April 21st, 2021 at 10:15 am

      You can improve your domain ranking by targeting easy-to-rank keywords and building relevant links.
      By doing that, you’ll attack traffic to your site and improve your overall ranking in Google.
      Once you start ranking well in Google, you will see your Domain Ranking increasing slowly :)
      But be aware: this is a long process… it doesn’t happen overnight!

      But if you are just starting out, it’s gonna take you some time to rank… it’s not going to happen overnight.

  63. Hasnain

    Well, I like the idea of using SEOsurfer and Immediately purchased it using your affiliate link.

    Let me share why I was so attracted to that idea, back in 2017 I had started a new affiliate blog that was competing with big brands like Groupon, Retailmenot, finder.com.au and more. We were nowhere near them in terms of authority but I knew that if I put my things right in place, I am going to outrank them with a completely new website.

    And we did it, and the main part of my ON page SEO strategy was that I made sure that I use different free Keyword checking tools that analyze a page and show you the keywords used on it according to their own analysis.

    And I simply made sure that I use every keyword with the same amount that they had used it and guess what, I outranked them within 2-3 months and that blog is making me around $20,000 dollars a month…

    It’s a super simple blog with everything free, I used my personally owned PBN for that which I learnt about from Matthew and boom it was outranking within months with a simple and free theme, simple $14 a year hosting from Namecheap, a cheap $6.99 domain that I had purchased…

    :) And this is true :)

    Hi Matthew,

    you make it look so simple… I’m trying to run an ecommerce business on my own and it is not easy at all. It seems SEO optimisation will take all my time :(

    I got a mixed advise from different SEO “experts” in past regarding my website and I have now run it through surferseo to get yet again completely different results. I’m so confused!

    • Matthew Woodward
      December 21st, 2020 at 10:02 am

      Hey Jackie! I understand your frustration. It happened to me as well when I start using Surfer SEO-
      Please, read my review https://www.matthewwoodward.co.uk/seo/reviews/surfer-seo/
      It would help you to understand how Surfer SEO works and why it gives you different advice from what you’ve heard before :)
