30 May Don't Forget Aboutus.org

Almost every SEO Consultant is aware of Aboutus.org, but from what I've seen a lot of webmasters, bloggers and SEO's do not take full advantage of what they offer. For those of you who don't know what it is, it's basically an about your website page that is powered by a Wiki and some custom technology. It's arguably the most popular site like it, and it gets the most love in Google's eyes. Aboutus catalogs over 10 million websites, has...

19 May International Link Building Tactics & Strategies

I wanted to start off with a quick overview of international SEO to make sure that you start your international link building campaign with a solid foundation. Make sure to target a specific country instead of a language with your international SEO campaign. The reasons for this are that countries may use differing terms to describe the same thing (for example a “pickle” in the US is a “gherkin” in the UK). Also, countries have specific indexes in Google as opposed...

31 Dec The Worio Search Engine In Review

I recently came across Worio which is a relatively new search engine that brings some new twists to the search engine game, and I'm pretty impressed. The layout and feel of the site flows nicely with a clean web 2.0 feel in both the design and social interaction. Worio is set out to not only provide the way we search as we know it, but also influence how you find things through friends, new blogs and other social media...

31 Dec Building Readers With Earnersclub.net

Earnersclub is a great hub for the SEO/SEM/Webmaster community and provides a new source for traffic to your blog.

15 Nov Google's Note This Feature And Its Future In The Algorithm

I haven't seen too much banter lately on the Google "Note This" feature within the search listings so I thought I'd see what you guys had to say. I've been noting my stuff and other sites for the past 6 months, unfortunately there really isn't a way to tell if it has had any effect.

12 Nov Build Links To Your Social Media To Dominate The SERPs

One thing I haven't noticed a lot of people talk about is building links to your social media content which can do wonders for both your flow of link juice, but also within the top 10 rankings. I offer this to my clients during a link building campaign and I'll tell you what I tell them. Unless they have unique and quality content this won't work out so well, or will look badly. Keep in mind that all the content...

10 Nov Kevin & The Googlebots

I've had the pleasure of chatting with a full time link builder and cartoonist extroidanaire. He goes online by the name of SEOKevin and can be seen here in the comments. He is responsible for my now favorite comic strip of all time(sorry Calvin & Hobbes), Kevin & the Googlebots. The comic is based around many hilarious scenarious mixed with real life mixed in with a whole lot of well thought out SEO humor. I know if I showed...
