4:00 Bradley discussing the mindset series
7:00 Can you tell me, what’s the difference between a syndication network and an RYS stack? Syndication network via IFTTT looks like a great way to push new content out. Not sure what an RYS stack is or how it works in conjunction with syndication network. Can you explain?

I am planning to switch all my money sites to HTTPS. Will my site lose back links that were previously built? Should I do some redirecting on domain level or cPanel. Or will it auto 301 redirect to https?
20:00 Are WP multisites better using subdomains or folders in the main domain? It depends?
I started with subdomains, thinking about freedom benefits with backlinks (as I know, because of independence of different subdomains), but could be nice if I could have few tips about which option is better for each case (or a link if you already talk before about this).
And also if link building strategy should be better to main domain at first, to each subdomain, etc.
28:00 What about sape links? Do they work? Relevant and not relevant?
31:00 One of my clients has 6 locations, one of them in his single GMB account is a PO box. If it is reported/removed from Google Maps, does it jeopardize the other locations in the GMB account? Or does Big G only remove the problem listing? Im hesitant to move the sites to a multi location silo if there’s risk the entire GMB account is at risk for the PO Box location.
34:00 Hey guys, when saving an image from another site, do you right click and choose “Save as” or do you use a snipping tool like Snagit to take it? I know from Maps Kingpin that snipping it means it won’t have any meta data, but is it something I should do even when not optimizing for Maps?
40:00 2) I have a client who has a huge amount of reviews on FB and GMB. They’re mostly 5-star and I’ve realized I need to make use of those. A few weeks ago BB mentioned a review plugin that embedded the reviews on the site. That sounds cool, but how would I use it? Where would I place the reviews on the site? Would I have a dedicated page, or just drop them around? Just wanted to see how you guys leverage reviews.
Let’s say you the keyword is “plumbing services”
Business A bids for “plumbing services” as a PHRASE MATCH…. so “plumbing services Dallas” would trigger the ad.
Business B bids for “plumbing services Dallas” as a EXACT MATCH…
Could Business B appear BEFORE Business A in the SERPs at a lower CPC just because it is EXACT MATCH? OR… highest BID with best Quality Score wins??
