seoValueBeen there, done that you might be thinking as you read the title of today’s blog post and for my SEO friends, yeah I know. But for all our SMB readers what I’m trying to indicate to you is that there is – there really IS – value in working on your site’s SEO rankinf factors to gain new traffic.

And as you know new traffic brings new conversions and new conversions mean new leads and new leads can turn into new customers or clients and that means new revenue.

Got it? Good!

birthday cake

Five years ago this week, I created and developed this blog, www.canuckseo.com and looking back from now, I think it was a smart move, eh!

We still get lotsa traffic, our uniques according to the WPStats program shows more than 12k monthly and the pageviews are nicely up and over 125k too.

Good stats I think and our tracking info here shows that most folks stay on the site for over 14 minutes.

Does SEO Still Matter?

SMB-SEOcosts-2I thought it time to revist this whole topic of whether or not SEO is “worth” the effort, work, tasks and tactics that we and most other SEO firms “do” on behalf of our clients on a global basis.

By that I mean to try to address both the in-house SEO work as well as the outsourced SEO work done by us professionals no matter whether we work for a company as their SEO pointman or for an Agency for many clients.

Conclusion first: yes, SEO still works and yes SEO still matters…but here’s my rationale. Continue reading “Does SEO Still Matter?” »

Fabulous Friday: An SEO World in Comics…

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…

Happy Second Birthday to CanuckSEO.com!

Yup, two years since I began this blog and so far, what I can absolutely swear to – is that writing a blog regularily can be a truly uplifting and fun experience. Well…mostly that is, eh!

That’s not to say at times, it’s not been a real chore…trying to come up with a topic that is both newsworthy on SEO, on local business and SEO, on Canadian wide national SEO and on Google itself…..something that at the least the kind folks up on the mothership have been so kind as to provide same. Monthly, weekly and yup sometimes even daily too!

Local Science Fairs: Get Involved, eh!

While today’s post is not so much on SEO, it may be apparent to our readers that in fact, it’s more about “community” and the next generation – many of which I learned yesterday, will be running things here in Canada soon! And to that end, I say KUDOS kids!

Here in the Hamilton, Ont area, we are very fortunate to have a Science Fair, called “the Bay Area Science and Engineering Fair” with over 50 years of providing a forum for our students in the Hamilton/Halton area to develop their scientific skills and prepare for national and international competition.

Canadian SEO: Back on the Sled for 2011, eh!

Yup, been a terrific Xmas holiday season…. but I’m back readers and there’s like a ton of SEO news already, eh!

And, yes I’m ready and chomping at the bit to get at some new SEO tactics I’ve been reading about testing; ready to try a new strategy for a non-profit we just added to our pro-bono client listings; ready to get out to network with some of those new MeetUp types of business groups too…in fact, I’m about as ready as one can be, eh!

So….why this post? And the Mountie calendar showing him getting his dog team ready for a sled trip? ….ahh…glad you asked, eh!

You see, from my POV, the running of an SEO practice “IS” a team effort….tons of juice and power and enthusiasm from the whole team drives us and our clients forward towards our destination…better serp rankings with increased new traffic that leads to conversions and new revenues, eh! A true dog-team and sled approach, in our mind….and as the guy who get’s to yell MUSH I love what I do….but I never ever forget both the team and how and where we find news and tactics and analytics to test on too, eh!

Happy First Birthday CanuckSEO.com!

One year ago today, I launched this blog on “Canadian SEO for Google Success…” and as a result of same, I can honestly say, I’m a happy canuck camper! This post, ie my one year blog birthday post has been gnawing at my psyche for about two weeks and I’ve had mixed feelings about what to write about but I’ve settled on the whole tone and content of same — I just wanna tell it like it is!

A full year ago today, I wrote that to be a succcessful SEO practitioner, you needed quite a large variety of skills, patience and resolve that you were going to succeed for your clients…and that’s something that I’ve been able to live up to over the past year which is a good thing, I know. So far, we’ve posted 112 blog posts and have had 876 comments/postbacks, with more than 4000+ incoming backlinks in that 12 month period. Not too shabby for a blog newbie, IMHO, eh!
