How to Discuss LDS.org's Google Exposure?

Hi my name is Aaron. I want to brainstorm with the community ideas on how to discuss lds.org website's individual pages so that we consider how Google robots decide to place our content. My passion is to optimize webpages so that each page's content fits what Google looks for when Google provides ea...

Ideas on being found online ranking high like an airplane

I was moved by Elder Uchtdorf's beautiful message and considered how he searched a phrase online. I think he touched on an insightful opportunity we have as members to contribute to being found at the top of Google when the sincere in heart search online with questions we could be answering if we we...

How tech savvy members can lead the world to lds.org in mass

So here's an idea to build the kingdom: Most everyone these days search popular forums for every sincere question imaginable- even questions about faith, God, religion, scripture, etc... 1. What if members thought up real questions people are asking and type the question on quora or Reddit where peo...

Re: Optimize lds.org be found on Google for faith and related questions people ask

Thank you SB. Btw, I just checked the updated rankings and I see lds.org number 14 now. Our domain authority is 84 which is the second most powerful website.

Re: Optimize lds.org be found on Google for faith and related questions people ask

Re: Multilingual Web Sites That Work

I suggest we start with English. Our web pages are not optimized for the key phrases people are typing right now. Example: "what is faith" is searched 22,000 times each month and our lds.org page has not optimized the on page content or url structure to be positioned as the first search re...
