Yes, it’s Friday again, and my mind turns to the weekend, and how nice it’ll be to NOT work 12 hours on the computer but cut that way way down to maybe only 6 or 7. Yes, I know…but that’s the type of guy that I am – sort of a semi-geek, semi-startupDude and semi-investor…but that’s fodder for another post.
Today, I want to talk about – well a bit at least, SEO comics. It should be no surprise to any online type of guy that the SEO world offers up much – and I really do mean MUCH – ammunition for a solid chuckle.
Here’s a recent chuckle to show you what I mean…
As most of our readers know, we’re very much involved in Snappay, our mobile POS app that is available in the Apple store…and it’s adoption by merchants all across the globe.
But as you’ve just read, we’re available right now ONLY in the Apple store for the iPhone or iPad devices, our Android product is still some bit downstream on our development roadmap…and that got me thinking…
Why would we develop for the Android series of products anyways?
What I mean by that is what kind of statistics that come to light when you look at Google Insights, Google Adwords, Google Trends, Wikipedia, SEOmoz, Search Engine Land and more. Quite a list of knowledgeable sites I think we’d all agree and the numbers that the firm known as Blue Caribu has put into their great infographic here, is pretty cool!
Okay, it’s a Friday again and I’m jammed, but by now our regular readers know that….end-of-the-week issues for us always arise as clients and Google seem to want to make changes just before the weekend starts…sigh….the life of a Canadian SEO practitioner is fraught with too many tasks in short timelines, eh!
Okay, you’ve got a website, it’s up and running….and maybe you’re wondering why the traffic to same ain’t so hot…well welcome to the club SMB owner! It should be no surprise that just getting the site up and running is not the “end” of that marketing strategy…the next part of that enterprise is driving traffic to same. And there’s the rub!
While this blog post is not about how to create and develop a full SEO Campaign to drive that traffic, what I wanted to talk about are three great infographics I’ve found to position my own rationale on same, so let’s chat about them in no specific order…
Okay, first my conclusion – that as of today, Google et al still value infographics and yes, that value can result in tons of IBLs (incoming back links) that can help build a set of serps that will rise in the rankings. There. Said it. That’s how I feel. That’s what I think. And yes, my clients have the serps to prove it…
But is that what others think too? And do they have any evidence to mount that infographics do NOT help SEO? Well, let’s see….
Okay, it’s been a rough week – yeah, I know for you too… but especially since we’ve had everything from client fires to put out, new clients to pitch, clients to wine & dine (if that wasn’t you don’t worry, your turn is coming, eh!) and yes, doing the normal SEO practice work all week long too!
That said, I did find a couple of real infographic gems and would like to share same with you and surprisingly a couple of them are on WordPress & SEO….so let’s take a look/see at what I’ve found this week, shall we?
Well, Thursday night really, but hey this is the only chance I’ll have in getting my normal Friday blog piece done and posted…because of my total commitment to our StartUpWeekend Hamilton:2 that begins tomorrow up at our Mohawk College and runs for three days straight!
Just finishing up a brand new week and very chuffed about a brand new car dealership client too and with our normal Canadian SEO practice workload up a bit…. I’ve not got a ton of time today to expound on the following great infographics that popped up this week….but here they are, eh!
From the folks over at www.teknet.org.uk, conceived by by Joe Davies, and the design was by Rebecca Troth…this great piece is entitled “The Different Types of SEO Client” and how you should attract the best!
And yes, they do list a Perfect SEO Client and I’m proud to say that all of our own SEO clients hit that metric, spot-on! Thanks there teknet…great piece and will worth the click, eh!
Yup, it’s only Thursday evening and I’m tired of watching amateur cooks face off over hamburgers on the Food Channel and with Friday being a full day down at our Innovation Factory for Mentor Committee intakes and meetings and then Cafe iF – I’m going to miss the chance to add a new post here to our blog. So….here’s our Fabulous Friday Infographic….and boy do we have a real winner to lead off with!
David Mihm, noted SEO practitioner from the Pacific NorthWest, is one of my own SEO personal role models. This man knows SEO. Period. And as he also runs the 30+ of us who help him with his Annual Local Search Ranking Factors Survey, he knows Google Maps/Places too. And then there’s the getListed.org online research group that he founded and runs – and did I mention the whole #localUniveristy group too? Okay, you get my drift…if there’s a guy to emulate, David would be dang close to the top of that list, eh!
Okay, you know your stuff. You’re either a leading edge (or not so much) web developer or you’re an SMB who keeps his/her ear to the tech ground listening (or not so much either) for the latest in how to build a site that converts leads into buyers. You’re aware of the best practices of all of that – and yet your site just isn’t performing as good as it could be. Sound familiar?
Ahh….Friday again…and as usual it’s been a heck of a week in SEO land! Many many small issues arise throughout a week of working on SEO Campaigns for clients and this past one was no exception. As many of you know, I visit about 200+ sites each and every morning that are news related, opinion related, blog posts, forums, bulletin boards and even still newsgroups looking for the latest “bleeding edge” SEO tactics and this weeks visits once again pointed out a few real winners!
