October 7, 2019

Writing SEO-friendly headlines.

Do you want to learn how to write incredibly SEO-friendly headlines that can position your content for more than one keyword? Are you struggling to create a headline that would engage readers and rank your pages for multiple search phrases?

How to Identify and Fix Keyword Cannibalization in SEO (2020 Guide)

May 19, 2019

Keyword Cannibalization

Keyword cannibalization is the single most prevailing mistake I find on SaaS websites.

In fact, almost every site I evaluate suffers from having pages or blog posts targeting the same keyword.
