Who issues an SSL certificate and where to buy an SSL certificate?
The SSL certificate is issued by the operator. The operator is the service provider that sells us the SSL service under a license that is issued by a major Certification Authority. Publishers include. CERTUM, RapidSSL, Datacard, Digicert, geotrust, etc. Of course, we can buy the certificate directly from them, but also through intermediaries such as. LH.co.uk
What to choose an SSL certificate - what is an SSL certificate and why I need one. Free or paid...
Let me start by saying that an SSL certificate is almost no different from any other SSL. The difference is really in the warranty. Back in the day, the look of an SSL certificate was different. In the URL bar, the company name appeared with all the green button (button). Currently, all browsers show a closed padlock stating the connection is secure. In addition, we can check the SSL type and certificate issuer.
In truth, only banks have a top-down requirement to secure sites in more enterprise solutions. This is rather understandable.
If anyone were to ask - why do I need a warranty with SSL. The SSL certificate guarantee ensures that if someone breaks its key then we will receive, for example, 15 thousand, 30 thousand, 500 thousand, 1 million dollars of course - depending on the amount of insurance. The amount of insurance is, of course, related to the choice of more expensive SSL certificates.
Let's Encrypt's free SSL has no guarantee. However, its parameters are the same as any other. Auto-renewal, domain validation, 99% web recognition, etc.
As I mentioned earlier, this type of SSL certificate is free. They are no different except for the warranty. There are limitations, but we do not feel them. The limitation is that such a certificate must be renewed every 90 days. However, when we are with an operator/service provider like. Light House is it on their side and we don't have to worry about anything. Back in the day, Let's Encrypt did not support wildcart. This is now standard.
I mentioned earlier about the looks of the SSL certificate. It will show how the certificate has looked over the years.
SSL Certificate - WildCart. SSL certificate for a domain, and for a subdomain what is the relationship
In a nutshell, when we take an SSL certificate with the wildcart option then our domain will have a padlock on all subdomains as well. NOTE! SSL works to the second subdomain namely: kamikstudio.pl and forum.kamikstudio.pl
If we implement wildcard on kamikstudio.pl then for: web.forum.kamikstudio.pl will no longer work.
We must remember that the subdomain is already kamikstudio itself, because the domain is .pl and the other subdomain for kamikstudio.pl is dev.kamikstudio.pl.
We can implement a wildcard for the second level subdomain, then it will work to the third web.forum.kamikstudio.pl but no longer to the first kamikstudio.pl
These are, of course, strong details, but they are worth mentioning.
What is an SSL/TLS certificate
SSL is a protocol that secures communications on the site. The messages we send from us to the site. SSL is mainly popular for login systems. As you log into the bank you enter your ID or login and password. SSL protects so that your connection is encrypted
SSL/TLS is an extension of SSL. TLS is what ensures the confidentiality and integrity of data transmission, as well as authentication of the server and sometimes the client. It is based on asymmetric encryption and X.509 certificates.
Currently, the latest TLS is version 1.3 and SSL is version 3.
How to check the SSL certificate - do I have it on my site?
How to add SSL to your site, how to install SSL certificate
Soon, with more time, I will describe the process in great detail
Does SSL affect my site's SEO?
Of course, even for a long time now, all ads in Google Ads require an SSL certificate. SSL requirement is also in other Ads
How to place a key phrase.
How to place a key phrase? Today I will write everything chaotically, but without pouring water. Back to the question, that is, the eternal question of SEOs, and those beginners. There are many tutorials and articles. However, why pour water when you can say it directly. My key phrase is"how to place a key phrase".
When we are talking about a key phrase then you rather know what SEO is. If not, you are invited here: SEO offerings and what is SEO. If you are still wondering how to account for SEO then I invite you here: SEO is a process, not a one-time action. We must also remember that SEO is divided into on-site and off-site. All off-site activities are SEO and mainly link-building i.e. external linking to our site. On-site is everything we do on our site - meta tags, headers, alt attributes, etc.
Where we put the key phrase
Always in the "FIRST ROW" ie:
We start the phrase also in the URL of the so-called. slug
in H1, H2
in the first paragraph
and preferably in the first paragraph to highlight the phrase - do not highlight via the tag because it is ineffective.
The rule is one! If you really want to rank for a phrase then it must always be in the first "row". See what the title of my entry looks like, what the description looks like (by examining the element - meta-description). In H1, H2, in the paragraph.
When a user types "how to place a key phrase" into google, notice that Google only shows results where the phrase is first everywhere. Of course, in the title we can double it, triple it. However, it must all make sense.
What do we need to pay attention to when placing a key phrase?
Text that contains less than 300 words max 3 times. If we have less than 900 words we post a maximum of 6 times. When we have more than 900 words - we place freely. Of course, without exaggeration.
Probably everyone knows very well that a correctly placed key phrase gives us a higher position in search engine results. We are simply more visible. Of course, we have to give Google a little time. I have also encountered people who think that a search engine is a browser. Therefore, I will correct this trivial and erroneous thinking. A search engine is where you search, such as: Google, Bing, Yahoo. Browser is where you will browse the Internet ie: Mozilla, Chrome, Opera, Explorer.
When will my website appear on Google
I will want to cover this topic in a separate post. However, on a quick note. Once you have your site and CMS installed, or self-made code then:
Connect Google Analytics and Google Search Console,
In addition, you can create a Google My Company - Google business card is free, and it gives you a lot,
If you don't know what Analytics is see here: Analytics Guide Series. I have not yet written about GSC as well as recorded, but it is an essential tool. With Search Consoli, you can monitor your URLs, effectiveness, mapping and structured data. Additional options appear when you will be plugging in structured data ie Schema. However, this will be discussed in a separate post, and a link will appear here.
What if I've already plugged in Google tools
Then you are left to wait. If you have plugged in sitemap.xml and robots.txt and followed the above steps, then you are left waiting. Remember to intensify your Web site with key phrases. How to place a key phrase I wrote above. Remember that the better you arrange the sitemape, the better the site will be indexed. Look at my example (click on the second sentence in the extensions). It is such details that will allow you to have a greater position. A new page on Google usually appears between 7 and 14 business days
How to look for inspiration in SEO
The answer is simple. Go in on big powerful companies and look at their source code. Check what METAs they have, what structured data they have, what scripts they have. Knowledge from Polish sites-even sites like mine-is and will always be poorer. Also remember, don't look for answers in books. Someone may laugh at me now. However, in six months, a year the book is out of date. Google changes the SERPs every now and then. Google changes its reasoning every now and then. It's the same as if you want to learn programming and a new version of a language comes out soon.
How to place a key phrase so that key phrase cannibalization does not occur
Cannibalization of a key phrase is like a lifetime prison. If we already make an entry, or a page in which we choose a key phrase then we don't make another one. If I now write"how to place a key phrase" then I will not make another post about it. When we duplicate topics that are mainly geared towards phrase X then phrase cannibalization occurs. Our content significantly loses quality.
I think I've written it in a big nutshell and that's enough for this time. However, this post will be updated and broken down in some detail. If you have questions contact me.
In 2020. In total, a year after adding this entry, I found myself in the so-called "The World of the Future. Google zero position. Google zero position or Direct Answer is a huge distinction, due to the fact that you are always in first place, overlooking all other sites. The most common zero position is found on Wikipedia. Below is a screen shot of what it looks like
It is said that item zero is reserved for articles that are described in great pathology and detail. As you can see, I debunk this myth.
82,720.14 PLN in 73 days that's how much I earned for the company I work for. How? Read more
This entry, will be exceptionally short. Due to the fact that all my work has already been described by Pawel Kepa, for whom I gave an interview at the beginning of 2019. My efforts in Facebook Ads campaigns have had an unexpected effect. At the present time with the date of this entry I invested approx. 3800 PLN gaining almost 114 thousand in earnings. Of course, it is not my money. This is money I earned for the company where I work. In the interview you will find out how I did it 🙂
To begin with, let's clarify the definitions. We do marketing for new people. If we want to attract customers we display ads to them. If we already have a customer who buys from us, or has done any interaction - we remind them that we are there. As you'll notice in the screengrab above, I got the cheapest customer already buying. Remarketing is the display of ads to an already "caught" customer/user. However, I will talk about this in other posts.
How to account for SEO - What the entry will be about
How to account for SEO, or how to account for SEO should be known by everyone. Every once in a while a startup is created in Poland, and decent companies go by the wayside. Behind everything goes the price, of course. However, for a good car, I guess we also want to pay well?
First of all, I would like to point out the most important thing! SEO is a PROCESS. It is not a one-time activity. Positioning cannot be done in a month, two, three, four. We need to do optimizations every day. SEO is not Google Analytics.
What is positioning (SEO) and how to account for it
SEO (search engine optimization) in our own words: Search Engine Optimization. We bill SEO as a subscription, as a process. We do it all the time, we don't stop. We control the competition, monitor, optimize. Positioning does not cost X. It's a "subscription" - PROCESS that costs Y.
If a company tells you that it will do your positioning in the amount of 1000zł. It should have closed a long time ago.
If the company says that it will do SEO for you and every month you will pay, for example, PLN 1000 - ok - we have a process. The question is for how long? Unless he does it for life with the domain
How to influence SEO:
content and more content
Key phrase in slug (url), meta-title, meta-description, H1, H2, paragraph. Necessarily in the first place (look at the example of this post. Where the key phrase is "how to account for SEO".
strong - that is, bold key phrases in the entry - not by the B tag, but STRONG
minimum 900 words
The use of external and internal links in content (anchor texts using the ALT attribute - alternative text). Linking is known as "linking. link building
the name of the image necessarily like the name of the entry, e.g. how-settle-seo.png and add ALT alternative text to each image
in line with the above - at least one or two images in the entry
Key phrase density - it is said that there are no limits. However, I recommend 5 to under 900 words. If we have more than 900 words we can add more. Not exaggerating,
use of sentence differentiation
appropriate length of the title (max. 65 characters or 200 - 569 pixels) and page description (min. 70, max. 160, or 600 - 940 pixels)
installed sitemap.xml and robots.txt - sitemap we can break down into categories. See what it looks like for me - by clicking
use navigation - breadcrumb's, pagination. Let it be on every page, subpage
Friendly URL - that is, friendly links. The link should look like, for example: kamikstudio.pl/blog/category/article, not kamikstudio.pl/45435345355 or kamikstudio.pl/$%2423
Don't cannibalize key phrases - don't use the same phrase on every page / post etc.
There are thousands of other factors. However, if you stick to the aforementioned basics you are sure to show up in searches.
What we don't do in SEO anymore - How to account for SEO
We do not add our sites to SEO directories. If page X has a thousand referring links = It is no longer worth anything. Its "scoring" is zero and worthless,
The meta-keywords are also gone,
Golden thought. SEM vs SEO - How to account for SEO.
Search engine marketing (SEM) is different from search engine optimization (SEO).
In the case of SEM, companies pay to participate in an auction in which advertising space is at stake. The auction winner's ad is displayed in the search engine.
Tagging keywords in content increases a site's chances of ranking high in search engine rankings. We call this search engine optimization (SEO). This free solution will allow person or company X to reach more potential customers.
However, neither SEM nor SEO provides free advertising space or an optimized site design.
Google Analytics - A series of tutorials by KamikStudio that will teach you how to move freely with the tool.
Google Analytics is an underrated tool by many marketers. Too bad. Many people ask a lot of questions aboutwhether it is worth using Google Analytics. How many people use Google Anal ytics and how often to check Google Analytics. The answer is simple - it is a very important Google tool and should be used for daily work. Google Analytics is your best and free analytics. You could say it's such a free worker that analyzes your entire site for you once you implement tracking code for it.
Introduction about Google Analytics - what it gives and what it is
In the first episode in the GA series, I talk about what the tool gives us and what/who it is. I know you may think - "well okay but there are plenty of such guides". I answer: but surely they are all detailed? I've done a series where I talk step-by-step about each category of report in GA and more.
Google Analytics - Guide - Episode 1 - Watch on YouTube.
Adding GA tracking code to your website - That is, how to implement GA tracking code to your website
In the second episode in my GA tutorial series, I talk about how to add tracking code to your website. The ways are several. We can so-called. with a programmer's eye - that is, directly encode in the <head> element of our website
Pattern for adding tracking code
Tu umieszczamy nasz kod/y śledzące
Tu jest zawsze treść naszej strony - to co widzi użytkownik
Of course, we can also place the code before </head> or in general in the element <head>. It is known that we can have a dozen tracking codes, for example, from other sites like hotjar or Google Tag Manager etc. And everyone will say to put right after <head>
In the head section, we insert only tags ie.
Another way to add tracking codes, for example, is through plug-ins in our CMS (content management system). Whether it's WordPress or phpbb3 or IP.Board or Joomala or Prestashop or Magento or even any dedicated SaaS technology platform like. Shoper or IAI, i-systems.
Recommended plugins for WordPress
HFCM, or typically GA. HFCM is a plugin that places code at a particular location on a page. Add snippet
Google Tag Manager
The last way, which I will also talk about and make a video, is Google Tag Manager. Generally, it's best if the created page is immediately connected with Google Tag Manager. We have full control over our site and code. However, there will be a separate post on GTM and episodes on my YouTube

The desktop so-called. Analyst's dashboard - or quick data about our site in a nutshell
If you want quick information about - what is happening on your site now or in a given period then Google Analytics Dashboard comes to your aid. The information we can get from there is:
Users, revenue, conversion rate, sessions from the last X selected days. We can also go to the Recipients Total tab as well as see on the right the actual time of page behavior (whether someone is now on our site).
How we get our users - from which traffic channel, from which source/medium or referrals. When it comes to sourcing we need to know about an important thing like building URLs with UTM tags
Where are your users located - in what locations, etc.
When and at what time do your users enter your site
What pages your users visit on your site. A useful tool when you want to measure, for example, how many people visited your article about, say. "Google Analytics in Kalisz. Positioning Kalisz." We don't need any additional plug-ins, because you will monitor this through GA.
What trend prevails on your site
From which devices users access the site
To what extent we retain our users based on cohort analysis. Did the person, for example, who entered in week 1, also enter in week 3.
Google Analytics - Guide - Episode 3 - Watch on YouTube
Real time in GA - or how to read data from the first category of our Analyst's report
In the third episode in the series, I begin to move on to the first category of reports that our Analyst gives us. This is real time. It's actually useful if and only if a lot of users actually come to our site - now. We can check their locations, what page they are currently on from what keyword they came in. We will also get information if it is from some external link or socialmedia (e.g., Facebook). As I mentioned. The real time report category comes in handy when we have these 5 - 10 users on the site all the time.
Google Analytics - Guide - Episode 4 - Watch on YouTube
Audience - that is, what group of users browse my website. Second category report in GA
In my daily work without Recipients in Analytics and Acquisition I do not part. At audience observes who they are, and how to target themselves in Ads campaigns. In acquisition, on the other hand, how my advertising campaigns are performing. I tried to tell the story in detail in the video. However, keep in mind that I record each video live - there is no time for correction here. Therefore, always read the descriptions carefully. In the Recipients category, we can check the active users in a given time period.
Segmenting customers / clients
In addition, you can create segments, which I talk about in the video. You can indicate all users but, for example, those who buy on the site. You can segment, for example, users who entered only from mobile or from computer and tablet. The options are many. Segments are default but you can also create your own. Segmenting users is very important. We can target perfectly the people we are looking for by what they are looking for. And by what they want.
Demographics, location, behavior, technology data
Not only will you find out how many people came in, and what segment of the audience was on your site. Google Analytics gives you full capabilities. Assess how many women you have, how many men. From which location they enter. What are the behaviors on the site. What technology they use. Skillful use of GA allows perfect audience targeting in Ads (AdWords or Facebook Business).
Benchmarking, cohort analysis, user flow
If your boss asks you a question - what is the flow of users on the site. You reply: the analyst will tell me! It is in GA to check any sub-page paths that a user visits. You will also check on a cohort table whether a user who entered in week e.g. 1 came back in week 3. You can extract paths, compare with other data. Example: how many transactions came out of site A. How many exits were from site B. Did the user who was on site A move to site B. How many interactions were made at site A and did they go to B.

Google graphics is now part of the search network for product ads. An important announcement from Google on March 8, 2019.
Google graphics is a rich source of images, and a key step in the purchase path of millions of users. Potential customers often use this service to search for ideas, guides, products and images related to key shopping categories such as fashion, home and beauty.
The end of March will see the integration of Google Graphics Search Network. This means that the product ads you are familiar with will automatically qualify* for display in search results for relevant keywords in Google Graphics.
Google Graphics: What it means for product campaigns
All product ads will automatically qualify* for display in Google Graphics. You no longer need to enable search partner networks to display product ads in Google Graphics.
Only in the case of Europe:
If you don't know what Google services display your ads in, check what price comparison service you have selected.
If your campaigns are currently displaying on search partner networks
You may notice a decrease in traffic coming from the search partner network and an increase in traffic coming from the search network. This is because Google Graphics was previously part of the search partner network. Note: historical traffic data from Google Graphics will continue to be part of the search partner network data and will not be included in the search network data.
If you don't currently have a search partner network enabled in your campaigns
Your ads will start displaying in Google Graphics, which can result in a 3-10% increase in traffic at a lower cost per click and comparable conversion rates.
Online store - which one to choose? SaaS-type store? Or is it OpenSource? Magento or Prestashop? What kind of online store for beginners as well as advanced people. Or dropshipping? About all this I will try to write today
Hi. I stated that I would share my knowledge and write today about which online store to choose. Many of you are always wondering which store to bet on. At the very beginning we need to know what budget we have. Can we afford a SaaS store or a store on an OpenSourc solution. However, before wgl. we will start talking about it then we will clarify the most important things.
I will try to make this post easier to navigate with headings. You choose what you want to read about 🙂
Online store - SaaS store
SaaS - Software as a Service or Software as a Service. The store is maintained at the service provider and made available to the customer. The model for such a store is usually to pay a subscription to the store's software provider. Examples of such software include Shoper, IAI, i-systems and many other companies. I didn't mention the names of these companies by accident, as I've interacted with each of them. Shoper is cheap, IAI is good but not quite and i-systems - here you have to have very and it's a lot of money.
Online store and your budget. What are the pros and cons of SaaS model stores
As I mentioned at the beginning. If you want to put up your online store then you need to know what budget you have for it. Unfortunately, I will speak negatively about the SaaS model due to the fact that there are high costs. Of course, you will encounter where most of the Internet will tell you that it is a cheap solution. However, it is not as hop as it seems. SaaS is not with you but with the provider. You pay a subscription. Fact - you have support and that is a plus, but any new functionality or things going beyond the SaaS model, or failures are covered by you. These are not small costs. Programmers, on average, net 170zl per hour.
I have been in contact with a B2B SaaS store and a B2C store on an OpenSourc solution - Prestashop. In SaaS, you have limited options. Limited access to the FTP server, database, or back-end of the site.
The plus side is that you actually have the support and availability of this service. Many companies additionally offer their solutions, which are sure to stand out from the competition.
Online store and your budget. What are the downsides and upsides of OpenSource stores like Prestashop or Magento
By way of introduction. Prestashop is for beginners and those crawling with Internet sales. It is a great tool for your first store and Internet sales. Magento is currently the best e-commerce store in the world and the most advanced. Slightly similar to Presta, but very difficult to use. The pluses of both stores are independence. You pay only for the domain, hosting, SSL. No additional subscriptions. You have full access to your site, server, FTP, database, back-end. You can edit styles, modify source code and program (if you can). Every store on OpenSource has its pros and cons. At a glance, there are plenty of pluses. However, we must remember that it's open code that everyone knows and you may be vulnerable to attack.
Online store on Prestashop
As I mentioned - a store for beginners. The online store is easy to use, has a user-friendly interface and very many free as well as paid modules. Prestashop also has Polish support - but it's not exactly good. You will not solve all topics at once. If you buy a module or style then you have direct contact with the publisher - then contact is ok. You can set up the store itself on Prestashop for free without buying paid modules or styles. You can build your first online store and start your first sales. It's worth plugging in a blog to boost your SEO. The possibilities or modularity are many.
Pros of an online store on Prestashop
Lots of functionality
Extensive free and paid modularity
A wide closet of styles
Frequent updates and software development
Quite interesting SEO
Strongly developed marketing to analytics and sales
Downsides of an online store on Prestashop
Difficult to edit templates
Not very efficient and fast - it is quite slow
Lack of compatibility when it comes to switching from 1.6 to 1.7 (recommends staying on 1.6 because on 1.7 many options are unavailable from 1.6)
Magento as I already know has been bought out by Adobe. Magento's potential is without question or denial. It is currently the best e-commerce system in the world. The downside is that you need a good server as well as good patience because of the advanced system. Magento just like Prestashop is multi-modular. In addition, you can write new functionality and create a "tailor-made" store. However, in the case of Magento, we won't just hire a person to write something for us. It's best to find a Magento specialist who actually knows it and can run our system. The subject is like with a car mechanic - we do at one and not at several because he is the one who already knows our car.
Pros of an online store on Magento
Free (however, there is a paid version - does not recommend)
Plenty of options
The downsides of an online store on Magento.
The cost of the implementation itself, and updates - you need to stay current with the system due to Magento's emphasis on security.
Advanced system and high system development costs
Online store in dropshipping model?
Deviating from the topic. Do you know what dropshipping is? If not, it is worth reading about it. Did you know that without leaving home, without storage, you can open your online store? That's the beauty of dropshipping. However, it's not all beauty that glitters. Dropshipping has its pros as well as cons.
Do you see the above picture? You create the store - completely alone at home. You are looking for a wholesaler to hold your goods. The customer buys from your store. The wholesaler gets the signal and sends the goods to the customer. You get the money from the sale, the wholesaler gets the commission and the customer gets the goods. Simple? Simple. Therefore, I'll move on to the downsides
Downsides of dropshipping
You don't know what kind of wholesaler you're dealing with - you have to bet on trust
Unsure if the goods will be shipped the same day or the next day
The goods are packed by the wholesaler, and shipped to the customer. You won't see what it looks like. Is it damaged? Is everything ok with him
As a rule, wholesalers give their descriptions and photos - no uniqueness - your SEO will not be good. You may not be the only one using the same wholesaler, but there may be some other company. Example: ozonee, denley, dstreet - according to. me they operate on dropshipping because they have the same products. How do I choose the best store? Values, features and who advertises better on Google as well as SocialMedia
Returns and complaints - not known.... Depends on what you negotiate with the wholesaler on the contract
And there are probably more, but I wanted to write the most important ones.
The pros of dropshipping
No need to stock up
You can manage everything in your home from your laptop, computer or tablet
Lower costs of maintaining an online store
Access to a large product range due to wholesalers
Good purchase price, margin and sale at your set price
You can link to Prestashop or Magento - it doesn't matter. Any OpenSource model allowed.
You don't freeze capital on the commodity
Sure profit - we pay when we sell the goods
Ideal for launching and starting a business
I think I've told you everything I wanted to tell you about which online store to choose and the possibility of some profit through dropshipping. If I've helped in any way please do give a paw, share, refer me 🙂
