Tsu SEO

Recommended Posts

Tsu does not seem to have much 'Google juice'. It seems that the only way to find Tsu pages is using the 'site:tsu.co' option to restrict to that domain and it only seems to find profile pages, not posts. As of today that finds 249,000 results. A couple of days ago it was 245,000, so perhaps the 'spider' is working. I'll check it again in a week.

 

DexterRoona/Infobunny has a few posts on the topic http://www.tsu.co/hashtag/tsuseo

 

I assume that Tsu need to do certain things to help Google and other search engines find pages. They may need a file to guide the spider and pages should in a format so that the post title is searchable as well as hashtags. I know little about SEO, but I would hope they have some experts on the team. They gave us options to make posts public on the web. I think this was not the case originally. I want my posts to be discoverable. Of course a lot of posts are not that interesting to Google, e.g. a generic pic with no text.

 

It was suggested that we could manually submit pages to Google at https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/submit-url I don't know how much effect that has.

 

Any thoughts?

Dexter has pointed there is the same page title for every single post on tsu. That is definitely not helpful for Google because all those posts look like thousands of duplicates. I think they should automatically grab the "Title" of the post and add it to the page title with some meta description. Keywords could be automatically grabbed from hashtags. URL is another case - all the posts are just numbers so there are no friendly URL's for google. 

 

I'm also no SEO expert but I think some of these things could be improved. If JonDunn said there was only 0.4% of Twitter posts indexed before Twitter made a deal with Google, it means we are on just 0.2% on tsu. 

 

Anyway, some things are nice to see in the search results. When I try to find the term "tsu forum"http://www.tsu.co/UnofficialTsuForum is on the second place. And I have noticed the same with many people who have bigger followings on tsu, for example searching for "maddi pilotmadeleine" will bring http://www.tsu.co/pilotmadeleine on the second place. This could be good for future growth if people will find tsu profiles their "celebrities" in Google results.

The count of Tsu pages in Google is not changing significantly over time, so I doubt they are actively spidering it. Dexter suggests creating channels as they may show up, but we need Tsu to be proactive in getting pages indexed as there are limits to what we can achieve otherwise.

 

The Alexa rank is still falling. Over 11,000 now. The music video contest starts today, but I have not seen any coverage apart from blogs run by Tsu users. I expect they were hoping for more than that.

I'm not sure how the Google index works and how quickly they index websites. This data from Google are showing the total number of indexed pages on tsuforum: It jumped from about 3,500 indexed pages to almost 25,000 during about 2-3 months:

and for comparison, this is the chart showing the total number of new posts on tsuforum in the same time range:

I don't see almost any correlation which tells me there can be something what we didn't consider. For example, I did the tsuforum update in the first quarter of the first graph and this update was focused on improving SEO. However, the total number of indexed pages grew up many months after this update. So if tsu made some improvements on SEO, they may not be reflected in their Google index yet (if I remember well, the V3 went live in March 2016). But as I said - the truth knows only Google (and maybe tsu itself)

      If you were a member of TSU and you would like to know the truth about what really happen with TSU then please join us if you are already a member then simply add jeni-meeee as a contact. That platform is secure while this one is not as with most things on the Internet. If you were a member you probably are not even aware of what you lost so far and what you would have made in the future. We are and we do not plan to allow TSU to go softly into that good night. We the users owned 90% of TSU and the company chose to fight their battle on their own which was their only mistake. We will not let it die in vain and if we can we will even bring it back, God willing.
       
      If you are a company that uses a similar model to TSU fighting the same battles that TSU fought for all of us then we would like to help you.
       
      If you want to be apart of the Class Action lawsuit that we are working on putting together against the guilty parties so that the battle fought was not fought in vain and so that other like TSU have a fair and equal chance in the future then please join us.
       
      All TSU wanted was a fair playing field they were not looking for anything else. They did not get that and neither do any of us right now but together we can change that.

      I think this may be your last chance to get your posts and photos. You should still be able to log in to do this. I don't know what use anyone can make of the files provided, but I think this was the least they could do after cutting us off so suddenly.
       
      I wonder if this will be left available for a little longer or if they will just shut down the domain.
