How to Increase Your Rankings Through Topical Content
November 08, 2016

In Episode #100 Eric and Neil talk about how you can increase your rankings by having thorough, topical content. Listen to understand why “extended content” doesn’t necessarily mean it’s “thorough content” and how it’s not about the amount of content but the depth of the topic.

Time Stamped Show Notes:

  • 00:28 – Today’s topic: How to increase your rankings through topical content
  • 00:40 – What topical content is
    • 00:52 – Most websites will create topics and pages instead of just one page with all the topics
    • 01:24 – Make the pages in depth
