  1. Hi Stacey,

    I liked the article written by Moz. I read the article and felt that most of the points are essential to be added into an SEO checklist. Most people will loose their search visibility because of minor mistakes. For example one of my friend have a website and accidentally his web developer kept Robot.txt to disallow. Which stopped the bots from crawling , in the mean time someone copied the content from his website and published it else which got indexed. Hell lot of time and other resources were lost.

  2. Hi Stacey

    its a well read article. Please suggest me some day to day content rulebook?

  3. Hi Stacey,
    I always love to read these roundups. Buffer’s article on Facebook advertiseing was an eye opener.


  4. Hey Stacey,

    A blog is considered as best practice to drive traffic to any kind of website. These are absolutely best blogs which really very helpful for blogger as well as online marketers to boost their learning. Many of them I have read and found beneficial for us in order to maximize our productivity. Eventually, thanks for sharing your best ideology regarding this subject.

    With best regards,
