Okay, so the first thing today, is to learn where I got this great tip – from Lee Odden, the head honcho over at and what a great tip it is! Lee is the knowledge generator there (among many other things I’d imagine) and in that role he writes great blog posts about all types of online marketing from strategy to tips to empirical items of note. So Kudos right off the bat to Lee!

What’d he say…well his blog piece is here that I found just on Friday past, and it is of great interest….perhaps because I love art of almost any type and whole Samurai style and content of the piece is so so much fun to read from – and to learn too!

A Halloween SEO Infographic: Cool but Scary, eh!

Filed under: SEO 

Not too often that I get to see a targeted spot-on SEO infographic that speaks to me both with great knowledge and it has a timelyness that I can appreciate, so when I found this one this morning I just knew I had to share it right here!

From what I can gather – tho to be totally honest even an old media guy like me knows how to find attributions – this one is a bit muddy. You can find the infographic here on the site, and it’s bylined by a writer (note, not an artist either it appears) named Dana Loiz of Caphyon, an apparent marketing firm.

Best Time to Send Emails is?

Okay, if you’re like me you try not to be online much each weekend…well…at least you do try. Yet I find that while I do not much surfing (other than looking up stuff I’d have no chance of ever getting correct in the New York Times crossword) emails I do try to look at at least once a day.

That should, at least in my mind “cut down” on the huge numbers of emails that I find in my INBOX on a Monday morning….but once again, today…I had more than 250+ emails…and yes, most of them were not for me.

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…

Smartphone Supremacy: Who’ll Win and Why to Care

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?

How “Big” is the SEO World on the Web?

It’s Friday again, and yes I want to show an infographic that I found inadvertantly that offers up a spotlight on our SEO world on the web.

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!

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!

Friday Infographics: A look at their SEO Value!

May 18, 2012 by · 6 Comments
Filed under: SEO 

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….
