It can sound generic and boring, and the same advice gets spewed out all over the web on a weekly basis, so why write our own checklist?

Very technically biased article and it does what it says on the tin. Now be sure you actually have an SSL certificate allocated to the domain that you’re trying to force this on. That seems like a simple statement, but the implications are that your site becomes inaccessible by most browsers as it’s identified as a security risk.
So you’ve got an SSL certificate, your domain is appearing with “https://…” at the beginning of it, but you can still view pages in your web browser which don’t start with “https://…” instead they go straight into “www.” or the beginning of your domain name i.e. “ihrinnovationgroup.com”. This means you have an SSL certificate, but it’s not being used on all pages. Not what you had planned.

“Promote your VPCs on third-party deals sites. This is a really sweet hack that can get you decent levels of traffic with very little effort. Simply search Google for “submit a deal” and you’ll get a list of 500,000+ websites that all want to showcase your deals. Submit your coupons to 10 of these sites per day (not all of them will take online coupons) and if your deal is eye-catching enough, you should start seeing some steady traffic flowing in.”

So you’ve tackled reverse ASIN, you’ve taken a look at Google Keyword Planner, maybe even splashed out on another keyword tool or subscribed to Helium 10. You’ve got a million keywords, some look completely irrelevant, some you haven’t got a clue on relevance, and you’ve got some indication of search volume. What the hell next?
