Pillar Page Content

I have made some changes on one of the pillar pages because the page was not ranking for keywords I wanted to rank. It has been three months since I have made the change on the website structure where I have changed them to Pillar+cluster structure.

What I have changed is that I increased Pillar Page Content.

Google Search Console Verification

One day I wanted to check the google search console how I am doing and I have received a message that google cannot verify the ownership of my website.

This was strange because setting the ownership in google search console is pretty straightforward. You set up TXT records on the hosting DNS records and that is it.

I have not changed anything lately about this because there is no reason so this error was strange. I have started to check and after a day or two the website went offline with an error “Origin Error”.

Check what was the reason and how I solved the google search console ownership issue.

Funnel Conversion Rate Analysis

I have done a blogging conversion rate analysis of my funnel with three pages. 

pricing page, checkout page and confirmation page.

First I was getting a 30% conversion rate which was great, but I have found that  blogging conversion rate is around 3%.

Check what I have found on my membership site and what the sales funnel conversion rate analysis showed me.
