Linking data from an app to a Website via API

My boss has asked me what the easiest way would be to link data from his own mobile app to their website. In the mobile app there is a directory list of doctors which is displayed to mobile app users and we basically want that the same list with up-to-date information is displayed on the website as well. At the moment I do not have any detailed information to which kind of database the app is connected with, but I will find out soon. BTW, I am not a mobile app developer or coder, but I just want to know what´s the common way to implement a “app-to-website linking”. My boss already asked a programmer and he recommended to create a “webhook” for this.

However, I am not sure if a webhook is necessary, because I think most developers use REST-APIs for such tasks which are widely used and compatible with various databases.

I know the information provided is not sufficient to give any detail answers to my question, but I will try to find out more…

Thanks in advance,

Pat

SERLists: Optimizing Tiered Linking Campaigns
@everyone – We normally provide our tutorials to just our subscribers and customers. However, this information is so critical to your linkbuilding, we didn’t want to leave anyone out.
We estimate that 90%+ people on this forum do not use these tricks with SER. This will be a HUGE difference-maker for a lot of people, so please read this tutorial carefully!!

4 Ways To Optimize Tiered Linking Campaigns

A lot of people fail with SER because they just spray links about and don’t optimize their campaigns properly.

As I’m sure a lot of you already know, there’s obviously some skill involved, but for the most part, link building is all about resources and how you use them. By optimizing your campaigns properly, you can easily out rank someone who has the resources to build 10 times as many links as you, just because they lack focus and direction in the way they build links.

There’s lots of things that you can do, and everyone will have their own ways they like to do things. Assuming that you’ve set your projects up properly (see the SER & Tiers thread), here’s a few quick and easy ways to get ahead with your link building.

1.  Don’t build tiered links to no-follow properties

Your first tier of links should absolutely consist of some no-follow contextual properties, but you really don’t want to be wasting resources by building further links to them.

You could always set up a separate campaign for your no-follow contextuals, but you can get around the extra hassle by just using the feature to only build tiered links to do-follow properties. (Yes, we know there’s no such thing as do-follow properties, but for the sake of this guide we’ll run with it.)

First you need to open the ‘Edit Tier Filters’ pop-up in the project ‘data’ tab:

Then check the box to only build links to do-follow urls, as per the image below:

2.  Build links to tier 1 properties that link to your money site with anchor text

If you want to rank faster, then you need to build authority to your properties that contain the anchors you’re targeting first. All things being equal, the more juice you funnel through them, the quicker you will rank for those terms.

In order to achieve this, you need to check the box next to ‘Verified Url Must have anchor’ and then insert your anchor text into the field next to it. There’s a limit to the amount of anchors that you can add, but I like to add all of my main and secondary anchors from my tier 1 project if possible.

The correct format is (no spin brackets needed): Anchor1|Anchor2|Anchor3|Anchor4|Etc|Etc

3.  Don’t build links to tier 1 properties on domains not indexed in Google

(That is, provided you want to rank in Google any time soon.)

This one is pretty obvious, but you’d be surprised how many people miss this. If you want to build a set of tier 1 properties to rank your site in Google, then you need to build these tier 1 properties on domains that are already indexed.

The best way to achieve this is to take your list of contextual URLs, trim them to root in Scrapebox (don’t worry SER will still post to 95% of them just fine), run an index check on them, discard any that fail, and load the rest into your tier 1 project(s) in SER.

Note: Domains that are not indexed in Google may still be useful for ranking in Yahoo or Bing.

 

4.  Avoid Broken Tiers

In order to avoid broken tiers it’s best to link to multiple tier 1 properties from each of your tier 2 articles. This is especially important if you are building a 3rd tier of links. If you don’t, you will waste a ton of resources if one of your tier 2’s goes down.

It also helps to break up the link building footprint a bit. Think about it, each tier 2 only links to one tier 1 which then links directly to your money site – how un-natural is that? (Not to mention easy to sniff out with an anti spam algorithm!)

There’s at least two ways you can achieve this…

1. You can use Kontent Machine 3 (or similar) and utilize the %link% macros. (We like to use three tokens, but you can experiment a bit with this number, as there’s no real hard and fast rule.)

2. You can also add plain articles to SER, and use the internal settings in the ‘article manager’ tab. Again, you can play about with this setting and change it to whatever works for you:

So that’s it, you’re now armed with some new tricks to kill of your SEO competition.

Now go make some money!!!

Blog promotion on Pinterest. Regularity of linking.

I created a Pinterest account, started making pins. I am trying to create 10 new pins every day.
Should I add a link to every pin I did? I guess it is not a good practice, is it?
Then, how many of my pins should contain a link to my blog/an article? What is a good proportion you use/recommend?
Currently, I made and pined about 50 pins. I added a link to my blog in one of them only. What proportion of the pins can contain a link to my blog?
Could you share your experience please? Thank you.

Using Anchor Links aka Jump To Links with Internal Linking Strategy

Do anchor links that link to another page help or hurt SEO internal linking strategy?

For example, let’s say I have two pages: example.com/services, and example.com/services/subtopic-service.

And, on /subtopic-service I have anchor links like: example.com/services/subtopic-service#section

And, I link to that anchor like from the higher level page /services.

I know that anchor links aren’t indexed. But, will I get the same SEO benefit from an internal link with an anchor link?

One domain linking single post over 1,000 time looks spamming?

When I’m checking Google webmaster tool, it shows one domain linking 1,067 times to my blog single post. All these 1,067 are different blog posts in that site. That site owner added my one blog post as a troubleshooting guide with a Click anchor text.

I didn’t create these backlinks and I have no connection with him/her. I would like to know that, is it spamming backlink? Should I “Disavow” this domain from Google webmaster tool?

Read More excerpt link on a post is not linking to the post itself

My Read More link on several pages (showing an excerpt of those posts) is not linking to the posts themselves when you click on Read More. It looks like it is a link and should do so, but it just update the same page and keeps you on that same page…

I don’t know how to code so very very basic layman’s terms is greatly appreciated. I am using Astra Theme if that makes a difference at all.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Suggest how to allocate and deallocate storage for elements within the hash table itself by linking all unused slots into a free list

Suggest how to allocate and deallocate storage for elements within the hash table itself by linking all unused slots into a free list. Assume that one slot can store a flag and either one element plus a pointer or two pointers. All dictionary and free-list operations should run in O(1) expected time. Does the free list need to be doubly linked, or does a singly linked free list suffice?

Please tell me if my understanding is correct: each slot in T[0,1,2….m-1] is storing (1) a flag (2) an element (3) 2 pointers

So, instead of the slot T(h(k)) being a pointer to a list, it is able to save one element and then that element points to a list

There is also a “free list”

There is only one flag for each slot T[0,1,2….m-1]

To insert an element ‘x’ we will first check T[h(x.key)] to see if it is free. If it is free then we insert T[h(x.key)] and change the flag = 1
If it was not free, then there is a list, so we insert it at the beginning of the list
To delete we will check x.prev and x.next to see if they are NULL. So when we delete the element ‘x’ we will be left with an empty list at that slot. So we insert T[h(x.key)] into the free list and update the flag to 0 and then delete the element x from the list its stores in

What I don’t understand is the functionality of maintaining a free list?
Is there a single free list for the whole hash table or does each slot have its own free list?
Also why insert the element to be deleted into the free list and then delete it? Why don’t just delete it without using the intermediate free list?

I am unable to visualize the use of the free list as mentioned in the question.

Does using links to other pages diliute the linking link juice/page rank?

There are lot’s of questions here about passing link juice to other pages, including Does how deep a page is in the page hierarchy affect it's ranking?. I’ve read several of them over the months, but I always come away wondering the same question.

Does linking to another page, dilute or burn some of the link juice the linking page has already earned? For example, if my current page has for example, a link juice of 10, and I link to another page, it passes a certain amount of juice (I’ll use 90% as an example) of the linking page’s juice, giving the page being linked to a .9 boost in it’s own link juice. However, does that mean the linking page’s page’s remaining juice is now less than 10?

While some of the questions would imply this to be the case, it seems counter intuitive as no one would ever want to link to any page outside of their own content for fear of losing page rank.
