I’d like to take this time to let you know that while I may not have been blogging for a while and apparently taking a break from the Denver seo world – you’re right. Though I’ll still take clients referred to me I am not actively competing with other seo professionals in Denver. (Truth be [...]
More and more as we work and play services and toys are netting together with web technologies that weren’t in existence at the turn of the millennium, under your nose and in plain sight. Just as we voluntarily accepted the carrying of GPS locators (cell-phones) we are also volunteering our personalities. Would you have done [...]
The diagram to the right is to aid you guys who may later complain about splashback. Here’s a quick ramble, not a rant. Another common sense issue. A while back I wrote about some sites getting “penalized” by Google after the discovery of some spammy techniques used to boost their search rankings. I bring this [...]
Just have to say how nice it is to FINALLY have a client that is interested in their web presence as I am. Too often (especially the last 6 months for me) I find people who has a great idea. They want is marketed to the moon and back. We meet, we talk, we plan…. [...]
There’s nothing wrong with increasing traffic to a website by making it genuinely informative and sufficiently alluring to attract links from other websites and bloggers! I don’t decry the practice of boosting, I’M AN SEO! HOWEVER, I do object to the means that some firms and people use to achieve it.
Turns out Tom Antion had a snide retort after getting caught spamming and his stupid mass email on his blogspot blog. Yes, comments are disabled apparently because he can’t allow anyone to show the hypocrisy behind his latest spam. He speaks of novice webmasters while his comments are at blogger.
Today I’ll talk about email, privacy and the gut dropping feeling people get when they get “caught” by their spouses. A woman contacted me freaking out because her husband “found” some personal email of hers. The messages were harmless out of context, but did bring things into a fair perspective when coupled with behavior.
Dang it’s late, need to sleep but first I checked some logs. I found some funny Google searches that hit a couple of my sites. Funny Search (didn’t remember typing this one) Very Funny Search – hope I don’t get in trouble. Hey, WHO would search that anyway!!? And the funniest of all – Read [...]
Tom Antion, the self proclaimed Internet Marketing Guru, has recently sent out a mass mailing with an insulting and inaccurate subject and message. The subject line states “your links are wrong on your website” Hey Tom, thanks for the analysis, thanks for the lies. It certainly set the tone for the rest of your email [...]
Doorway pages that redirect us without explanation, synthetic pages auto-generated by software, pages like toilet paper containing nothing but links, pages without exits except an ad to click, pages with ads disguised as menus, pages containing long lists of every conceivable search query but no information.
Every SEO regurgitates the phrase “Content is King” but I think the claim needs revaluation. Search engine gurus have spouted the phrase for quite a while, but have you noticed just how many sites are ranking with very little, or scraped content?
Privacy is NOT about remaining secret. Privacy in todays digital world is about managing and maintaining control over information about yourself that others may use to hurt you. As the technologies and methods of spreading information spread through the population, what options are going to remain in our society of increasing transparency?
It amazes me how often people search for themselves by name on the Internet. Are these people paranoid? Scared? Guilty? Server logs and tracking scripts give such insight to the psychology of web surfers- from what they search for, what interests them, where they work to their actual internet usage – it’s all so fascinating.
You’ve heard it, you wonder what it is, yet you don’t ask. (I understand, you would sound silly) Web 2.0 is a new animal, a new kind of web build – a new experience. Wikipedia defines Web 2.0 as a “second generation of services available over the World Wide Web that lets people collaborate and [...]
After a website becomes successful, after the SEO is on to newer projects, it happens. A phone rings on the hip of the SEO responsible for that beautiful 1st page search result of last month. “What happened? Why did it fall?” Here it is: short list.
