I am having some serious issues with IP Content and ranking for key phrases on search engines. I work within a very fast paced industry and breaking stories is what makes a brand stand out from the rest. My editorial staff has breaked several big stories and we continually see us not listed for related key phrases.
In most instances, I would write this off as an article not receiving enough backlinks or too similar to other larger news outlets. However, the stories that we have reported are major articles within our industry. We were the first outlet to break the story, and other major outlets referenced us as a source for their article. If we were the first to break the story, and more established brands with larger audiences are referencing us - we should be at least listed on the first page for related key phrases.
For example, here are some of the major stories we broke...
Tomorrowland Headed To The United States!
Tomorrowland United States Expansion Due To Buy Out?
Insomniac For Sale? SFX and Live Nation Are Interested...
Beatport For Sale? SFX Wants A Piece!
SFX Website Reveals New Buyouts: Beatport, Electric Forest, React Presents, Clubtix, Q-dance, and More!
These articles were the very first at breaking the story. These articles have hundreds of shares on facebook and twitter (the first article listed has just under 9,000 facbeook shares). These articles are all indexed by Google. But none of these articles rank for any important key phrases. WHY??!!
As you can imagine, I am extremely frustrated and at a loss. The IP Board portion of my website brings in lots of traffic from Google, but the IP Content portion of my website brings in barely anything to where it should be at. If we are breaking major stories, receiving links form major sources, and receiving thousands of social media shares - why are we not ranking for related key phrases in Google Search?
When linking database records to each other via database relationship fields, is it possible to display data from one record on the template of the other?
For example, if I create a Event database with a database relationship field called Venues. Can I display venue information beyond just the linked title in the Event template? For example, if the linked Venue record had a street address - could I display this on the linked Event template?
When liking an article from the facebook like button on the article page, Facebook does not grab the article image. Please set the article image as the og:image in the Open Graph meta for the page. Thanks!
Alright, that is great to read. However, I would still like to see the category names removed from the record URL and to allow the article URL to remain the same when changing the title. Please consider these ideas. Thanks!
When changing the article title, please do not change the article's URL by default. Instead of automatically changing the article URL when the title is updated, please give us the option to have it updated.
As is, changing the article's URL for a page that has built up incoming link juice and share counts can all be lost when simply changing the title of the article. This sucks. =/
