About Me

I have been a search engine optimizer since 1994, that's just about the beginning of search engine optimisation. I'm pretty much retired now from it all except for some SEO ethics advocacy.

I'm getting interested in the entertainment industry lately. I practice art therapy through painting,…

I think Google doesn't consider either type of links as spam. It assigns some insignificant value to them but that is based mostly on the credibility of the blog or forum. Dumping links on spam forums and spam blogs can actually be harmful from an SEO perspective. If you post …

You'll likely need to develop some content. That'll require you write paragraphs, headings ... You'll likely want to throw in a couple of optimized images. What I mean by optimized is that they are logically named and make good use of the "alt" or "title" attribute to the image tag. …

[QUOTE=cscgal]What do you consider "ethical SEO"? What types of general techniques do you use? (No need to be specific or anything here.) The only reason I ask is because everyone has their own definitions of black hat, white hat, ethical, not-so-ethical, etc. :)[/QUOTE] I am not falling for that one. …

Much of what I've read so far in this thread encourages the SEO newcomer to find trendy ways to link the shit out of his web pages regardless of the caliber of the content. To throw webpages together then seek reinforcement outside the work in order to make the pages …

Depends. If it is just a handful you can try contacting the webmaster to physically remove them and that may work. If it is many "bad" links then you may be out of luck. The thing to remember is to NOT try to manipulate your backlinking strategy by artificially building …

Link building is not in itself search engine optimization. Link building as the sole tactic in an SEO strategy is like having some cheap icing for a cake. You got to bake cake man! And about the other part of your question, the "traffic" you may have received in the …

what is wrong is that Google's now showing half a page of sponsored results before their natural results. It almost impossible to determine what's really the best web page for a search. I want to puke when I have to scroll to see my rankings that should be prominent. This …

I cannot imagine how a web page could have difficulty performing for such a non-competitive keyword phrase. I would suggest you consider other forms of advertising beyond the search engines as the pages you are creating obviously add little value to the Internet.

Huge numbers of Likes can come naturally in almost any industry provided you are offering regular, intereresting and relevant new posts. It may take some time to develop a large enough audience to naturally generate Likes so one trick is to Like others, similarly themed Facebook Fan Pages. Often, that …

All SEO begins with deciding on effective keyphrases and optimizing web pages for them. Try to find ones that are attainable mostly using onpage and on-site search engine optimization. Try to figure out ways to make your web pages important enough on their own for the search engine to deem …

Email marketing is annoying and potential customers are not impressed with receiving solicitations in their inboxes (should your communication be able to pass their spam filters, which incidentally and perhaps ironically are in place to stop email marketers from reaching their inboxes). In other words, it isn't often an effective …

Actually, there is SEO in social media marketing. Take Youtube for example. Videos get ranked and are subject to algorhythmic interpretation. That is why it is important to include a keyphrase rich Title and well optimized description for each video inasmuch the same way you would perform SEO on a …

The best software I've found to date checks for correct grammar and spelling. Word is a good one. I've found over the years that the search engines prefer well written content rather than well ... most of the rest of the crap out there.
