FAQ

How to build keyword list?
Your keywords should reflect all of the different types of user queries that could help someone find you when they’re looking for something you offer. Ask yourself what is your website content about, what your most popular items are and what problems you solve. Think like a potential customer who doesn’t know your company. Start with very specific phrases comprised of two to five words (aka long-tail keywords). If you offer local services or run a brick-and-mortar business, be sure to localize your keywords.
What do «new», «on», «off» keyword tabs mean?
A keyword you’ve just added is in New section. When you start earning backlinks for this keyword, its status will be changed to Activated. When you stop link earning for this keyword, its status will become Stopped.
What will happen if I turn off link earning for a keyword?
Cubo will stop earning backlinks for a keyword. All earned backlinks will be removed and cannot be restored. That may negatively affect website rankings.
If I delete the keyword, what will happen to the backlinks?
If you delete the keyword, earned backlinks will be automatically removed.

Landing Page

Cubo automatically analyzes content of your site and suggests the most valuable page for each keyword. If you promote landing pages that are already on Google search for targeted keywords, you will get high search engine rankings faster. Make sure your potential customers will get to the right part of your site.

How To Edit Landing Page

You can edit landing page URL. E.g. if you optimized a new page for a keyword.To change landing page for a keyword click on «pencil» near its URL.

Then type-in a new one.

When you change or edit landing page URL, not all earned backlinks will be redirected. You risk to lose backlinks and current rankings.

FAQ

Why specify a landing page corresponding best to the keyword?
Google uses keywords to match a page with a search query that your target audience use to find your products and services. It is recommended that you optimize each page for NO more than 5 keywords or keyword phrases (2-3 major keywords and several complementary ones). Optimize each specific page for its own individual set of keywords. Tip: Be sure to optimize your home page and all pages that already have high rankings on Google.

Monthly Budget

Cubo automatically analyzes top 10 competitors on Google search for each keyword and calculates monthly link building budget you need to outplay them and be at the top. Keyword budget depends on how competitive a keyword is.

FAQ

How can I control monthly budget of each project?
Monthly budget of a project is a sum of keyword budgets it contains. Cubo calculates keyword budget so you can get high rankings on Google. If you want to spend less, choose most valuable keywords and turn link earning on only for them. We guarantee that Cubo won’t exceed keyword budget.
How many links will I get for a keyword budget?
Amount of links Cubo earns depends on cost of a particular backlink from a particular website. The approximate number of backlinks you will see on the 3d step of Project Wizard.
What will happen if I forget to add money to the wallet?

You pay for keyword promotion. Cubo do all the work: earn backlinks, monitor backlinks placement and pay to publishers.

Rankings

Keyword Research

How many keywords is enough

Keywords are foundational for all your SEO efforts. Number one listing on Google can be totally pointless if it is for the wrong keyword.

To understand the value of keywords and find the best ones, you will follow this process:

1. Create a starting list.

2. Expand your list using keyword research tools.

3. Refine your list with competitive research.

You may find 10, 50 or more good keywords. Depending on how diverse your array of products or services is, this list could be huge. And we ask for at least 10 keywords to start a project.

Why start with 5? There are 3 reasons:

1. Same needs — different phrases. People ask Google for what they are searching using different words for expressing their intentions. Users with the same intention to buy baby clothing can use different words when search: for example, «buy baby clothes online» and «baby clothes online international shipping». To satisfy users’ needs Google collects information from every page on the web and put it in context. If your website answers the question it will be shown in search results.

2. Keywords work together. If your website has good rankings for the very specific phrases, Google will understand that it is relevant to the more general topic too. So your keyword list is like a team where everyone helping each other. As the result your website ranks high in Google search results.

3. The research. Our client base research shows that projects with at least 5-10 keywords has better results. And we believe, that you also put results first.

How to find relevant keywords

First you need to know what keyword topics best identify your website content. Think like a potential customer who doesn’t know your company. Ask yourself

  • what your website content is about,
  • what you would ask Google to find what your website offers,
  • what your most popular items are,
  • what problems you solve.

Choose the right keyword type to gain more clients

People use keywords for two reasons: for information or for buying.

People who are looking for information only usually use keywords for browsing. A person might be interested in a mobile phone, so the keyword he might use could be «mobile phone».

People who are ready to buy use keywords comprised of two to five words (aka long-tail keywords) and the words like «buy», «order», «book», etc.

Example: if you’re selling baby clothing, good keywords will be the following
baby clothing online
baby clothing online shop
baby clothing free shipping
buy baby clothes online
buy baby clothes online international shipping
buy baby clothes at low price
best baby clothing
baby summer clothing online
clothing for boys best price
girl dresses store, etc.

Multiple word keywords make your site more relevant

Search engines analyze all pages of your website and put them in context. Start with multiple word keywords and then extend your keyword list. One word keywords usually are not targeted. Internet users who use four-word searches are more likely to purchase goods or services than those using fewer words.

If you’re selling MP3 files, you should optimize your web pages for keywords such as «independent bands mp3», «alternative grunge mp3», and similar keywords first. If your website has good rankings for these keywords, search engines will find out that your website is relevant to the mp3 topic. As soon as search engines consider your website relevant to this topic, it will be much easier to get high rankings for keywords such as «mp3 download» or even «mp3».

Tip: You’d better start with very specific phrases. When you see positive changes in rankings add more general and industry-based keywords.

How to evaluate keywords

People may not use the keywords you expect. To pick the best keywords and phrases for search engine and content optimization we recommend to do the following:

1. Ask yourself.
Is the keyword relevant to your website content? Will searchers find what they are looking for on your site when they search using these keywords?

2. Search for the phrases in Google.
Understanding which websites already rank for your keyword gives you valuable insight into the competition and how hard it will be to rank for the keyword. Once you have some basic ideas to start with, you can expand upon them by using the freely available suggested search.

How to make keywords work for you

Now that you’ve found the best keywords, you need to put them to work to get SEO results. You need something valuable to earn links to.

Your next step should be to create content targeting that keyword by providing great content that truly answers the questions your prospective customers are asking with their keyword searches. Show search engines that your website is relevant to a particular topic.

Copywriting Tool

Links to your site won’t work without useful and unique content on its pages. Cubocloud Copywriting Tool provides high quality content that will help you increase site rankings for keywords. It is this easy — place your order, receive the text, and post it to your site.

y2oajiov2nssmevra9rf.png

Order title. Briefly describe the topic of the text you want. Title will help you manage your orders. It won’t be used in the text.

Keywords. Keywords you want to improve site rankings for. They will appear in the text. We recommend to add keywords with the same topic. So don’t mix keywords like «baby clothes» and «mp3 player» in one text. Text about «baby clothes» works better with «buy baby clothes», «cheap baby clothes» keywords, and etc.

Landing page. A page where you intend to place the ordered text. If the page for the content does not exist yet, or is empty, leave it blank. If there is already a text on the page, it will help copywriters create a better content for you.

Word count. Standard text length is 700 words. The length of the ready text might slightly vary from it.

Instructions. Describe the text you want, give instructions to the writer. For an outstanding results provide as many details as possible.

— Note the purpose of the text, target audience, style, questions the writer should answer in the text.

— Describe the content; whether the text should offer advice, provide instructions or entertain your audience.

— Include what you don’t want to be mentioned, for example your competitors, sensitive topics, any information that has already been described elsewhere on your site.

2. Place the Order.

To place your order, click on the Order button.

Usually it takes 3-5 days to prepare your text. When it is ready, the text will be sent to the email you use to log in to Cubocloud.
