Filed under: SEO 

fridayTypical now I’d guess you’d be thinking, that on a Friday, I’m pointing out some great infographics that I’ve bumped into over the past week or so, and yup, you’d be correct too, eh! We have alerts using the Google Alert tool as well as a couple of other proprietary aggregators and we always take a minute or two to click on those alert links to see what others are pointing out  which is how we found the ones we’re featuring today.

And that’s not to say there aren’t others too, that deal with our own national Canadian SEO but these ones are ones that I thought spelled out “best” practices and information being passed along to the reader. So here goes the latest winners in our SEO world, eh!

Filed under: SEO 

fridaySo…Friday once more and yes, Infographics are on our mind once again! That’s the SEO tactic that again, while others seem to believe that they add “little” for your SMB website serps…we know different!

Yes, we understand that many SEO practitioners have an upturned eyebrow when they begin to think about Infographics.

And yes, we also understand that many “other” SEO practitioners know little about Infographics, but here’s what we know via our own SEO practice rationale of empirical testing!

UIX: Keep it Simple to Maximize Conversions

uix_iconYup, I’m back on the UIX soap box – that’s Usability Interface design….and let me explain why first…but if you read here often, you know that I love very much, the testing of UIX for website design.

Love it enough, to make it a necessary part of every single client we take on for any type of online marketing program. And that’s a bit surprising for many of the potential clients who think that all they need to do is to hire an SEO firm and suddenly get a flood of new traffic and revenues.

Doesn’t happen like that, I’m afraid….but that’s a whole other blog post for another day.

What The Heck Is SEO? A Rebuttal!

Okay, I’m supposed to be “off” for Xmas…but this just in!

If you know anything at all about online marketing, the website smashingmagazine.com would be a spot that you’re already aware of…least in my world it’s one of the leading places for all things on marketing in various channels.

 In a recent Opinion Piece, a writer by the name of Paul Boag wrote a piece entitled “The Inconvenient Truth about SEO” that he opened up with the following paragraph -

“Do you own a website? Do you want to be number one on Google? Whatever you do, don’t spend money on aggressive search engine optimization (SEO)…” 

As you can tell, I’m going to NOT be okay with this…

Rank Tracker Keyword Research Tool: Updated and Better than Ever!

Working with any ranking software package, is a very hard usually laborious set of tasks, and for us SEO practitioners,  it’s really no different – till we moved away from our old ranking app to the Rank Tracker app from Link-Assistant about 18 months ago.

No surprise really…as a google on the “best rank tracking software” shows them right up at the top with 5 of the top 10 positions. We have reviewed this app before – here – and as you can read there, we were impressed with their offering of quality ranking algos versus the cost…and judging by all the SEO peers I know, it’s a widely shared respect.

A recent look at this area of interest, i.e. the link that “should” exist between SMBs  and SEO here in Canada has shown one thing big time — that for much of the SMB world, such a knowledgeable link does not exist! And how did I learn that? Simple, I found the info both here at DIYSEO and the link from there over to the Ad-Ology Research site offering up the full report here…
