We've Added Support for Local Citations on a Target Level!

February 27, 2014


Today we are proud to announce a new feature:

We now offer you the ability to take advantage of local citations for every target in a campaign, on an individual basis.  They used to only work on a campaign basis, and that caused a few conflicts.

This way, even if your business has multiple locations all within the same Link Emperor campaign, we can now build unique citations to each of those specific URLs.

Local citations are absolutely necessary when it comes to ranking for local keyword terms and in Google places.

To learn more, we have a new 3-minute training video that explains everything in detail!  Watch it here.

As always, we love hearing your new ideas for the service and do our best to support feature requests as they come in.  Don't be scared to ask!  In fact, many of our best features have come from customer input.

If you have a suggestion, please email us at

Penguin 2.1 Webinar -- What's Working, What's Changed, and How to Profit!

October 24, 2013


At the beginning of this month, there was a major Google algorithm update known as Penguin 2.1.  It seemed to affect local business websites more than anything.  However, there are a number of factors that could have triggered a penalty for your website.  

In this Webinar, Kevin and I get you 100% up to speed on the newest developments in SEO, along with exactly how to profit from them.  We even invited a special guest who was totally unaffected by this update to share his secret formula for penguin-proofing his local clients with Link Emperor!

Google continues to favor high-authority websites, now more than ever.  This update has only increased that trend...

The great news is that Link Emperor's still dominating in the rankings, partly because high-authority sites (ParaSites) are our bread and butter.  Those are things like YouTube videos, press releases, Amazon products, Web 2.0 sites and more…

We also discuss some of the updates we've made to Link Emperor to fit Google's new algorithm changes, and ways to successfully use it to continue to safely rank your own local sites and money sites.

Rank Checking within YouTube Search?!

May 07, 2013


I wanted to let all of you know that we are working on some really cool stuff that we will be rolling out in the very near future.

Many of these additions come from customer feedback and feature requests. We always love hearing what all of you would like to see in Link Emperor, and what would make your jobs easier. We do our best to prioritize those in a way that makes sense for the masses. So stay tuned to this blog in the coming weeks for some really great things!

Today, I wanted to announce a feature addition that has been much requested over the last few months.

As SEO professionals, we know that video is one of the hottest trends right now. This is largely due to the fact that it WORKS! And it works very, VERY well!

This shift in internet marketing means that we are not only wanting to track our Google rankings, but also how well we are ranking within the search engine of YouTube is the 3rd most popular site in the world (behind only Google & Facebook) so it goes without saying that knowing where you rank in YouTube is just as important if you are doing video.

So now, along with our Google, Bing and Yahoo rank tracking, we are pleased to announce that you have the option to track your YouTube rank!

Here's how it's done…

When setting up a new Campaign you will be given a number of different rank tracking options. 

See here...

Also, if you want to add this to an existing Campaign, simply click the yellow 'Edit' pencil and you will see the same options. 

You can find this Edit option here… 

All you have to do from there is select the YouTube rank checking option. (As noted, this option will charge a $0.05 fee per YouTube URL per month)

And that's it, it's that easy!

Even for those of you that may not focus entirely on video, we still highly recommend that you try to include some of these kinds of "ParaSites" in your link building campaigns. Not only do they help to diversify your entire backlink portfolio, but once they begin to rank, they can also be a great source of free traffic!

To Your Success,
