      I like the blog post. I'm going to work on my own today. Hopefully I can get some creators from them.

      1. 1

        Sweet. Let us know when published!

    2. 1

      Thanks for sharing the SEO insight!

      I've been launching new products and micro-app-content every month. I have 7 different properties on GA and search console. MOST of the sites are developed the same and share the same code footprint / theme. One has a few thousand pages so it's an outlier.

      My issue is that I can't get google search console to be honest with me. Their inbound link footprints are almost identical as is their crawl frequency. On one hand I see data and the numbers add up wonderfully... on the other it's a mess (Marty Huggins voice) the impressions, CTR, clicks just don't make sense.

      This has been making it hard for me to measure what's working. The site's get traffic as it is however GA and SC just don't add up. Even when reviewing on the historic data.

      Was asking others to get a glimpse of how they are handling that.

      1. 1

        "Micro-app-content"? What's this?

        Ahhhh. It's difficult for me to compare, as I've all sorts of rules for Analytics that don't apply to Search Console, e.g. don't track my IP, don't track traffic from IH, etc. What are you comparing? Organic clicks based on certain keyword phrases clicks versus acquisition or behavior?

      Simple words of power! Are you planning on adding SSL to avoid the nasty browser warning?

      1. 1

        thanks :-) had a slightly incorrect domain name, SSL cert misfired. Fixed now.

        1. 2

          I've been through the wars with SSL certs, I know how it goes!
