Your SEO Content Is No Longer Working

Posted by:

So you’ve had professional SEO articles written and high quality web content posted throughout your site and across a number of article directory services.

Job done?

You might think so, and you might sit back and wait for the search engines to hurl your site right up to page one. You may even find your website climbing up the search results lists, and take this as a sure sign that you’ll be up there at the top before long.

And then all of ...

Why You Should Be Concerned About Search Directories

Posted by:

With search engine optimization and search results positions so important, why should you still bother with search directories?

There’s a simple answer to this, and surprisingly, it’s for the exact same reason as SEO strategies. By having your website listed in, say, 100 of the top search directories you can achieve a massive boost to your search results position.

Think about it – if you were to take the top 100 search directories, each of which probably have a Google Page Rank ...

Guaranteed Google Position And A Left Handed Shrimp Peeler

Posted by:

There are over eight million results on Google for the search ‘guaranteed Google first page’, with the vast majority of these sites stating categorically that they can help you achieve this placement.

Don’t believe them.

To start with, only ten of these eight million websites have achieved that position themselves. That’s only slightly more than a 0.0001% success rate. Not a brilliant start.

But the truth is that no one can guarantee you a first place, or a first page position. Certainly there ...

A Writer’s Foibles & Pet Hates

Posted by:

Every writer has at least one pet hate, and one foible – what is yours?

I have a writer friend who has always had a special hatred for those who qualify an absolute, such as suggesting that something is ‘almost unique’ or ‘almost new’. Naturally, as frequently argues, a thing is either unique, or it is not, but it can never be almost unique; similarly, a thing is either new, or it is not, but there can be no room for ...

Why Writers Are Like A Nice Cup Of Tea

Posted by:

I simply can’t work without a cup of tea.

It’s the fuel which keeps me going. Admittedly, I probably drink far too much of it, which is why I regularly have to dash to the bathroom. But I think it’s more than just a drink to fuel my creativity.

I’m sure my cup of tea holds magic powers; all that Brownian motion going on in there, all those little molecules bouncing off each other – every now and again, some escaping, wafted ...

Beat Writer’s Block By Being Rude & Prejudiced

Posted by:

Writer’s block getting you down? Running out of ideas to kick start your motivation? Need something to get rid of that blank white screen in front of you?

I’m frequently faced with this problem, and I know I’m not alone. Like most other writers I have tried a number of different techniques, from stream of consciousness writing to getting some thoughts onto the paper the night before so that the day never starts with a blank sheet.

But I recently came across ...

The Truth About The Keywords Meta Tag (Or How To Confuse Your SEO Expert)

Posted by:

To meta tag, or not to meta tag – that is the question. Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous search results positions, or take arms against a sea of competitors and by outranking, beat them to page 1 of Google.

Unfortunately, it seems that there is huge division when it comes to one specific meta tag – the keyword meta tag. A brief search on the internet reveals a wealth of SEO ‘experts’ ...

The Most Forgotten Website Ranking Optimization

Posted by:

You shouldn’t really have to think about. But what is the most important kind of optimization which you should employ in your websites, and into website content?

All too often I see websites and articles stuffed with keywords and key phrases, semantic language strewn throughout each clause, with barely pause for breath. Surprisingly these do often work their way up the search engine results, but they’re missing a trick.

Ask yourself this – is it more important to entice a thousand visitors ...

SEO Emails – What Google Has To Say

Posted by:

Did you know that some ‘SEO’ experts have offered to help Google improve its own search results position?

If you have a website, the chances are that you have received ‘out of the blue’ emails from self-styled SEO experts advising you that they have looked at your website, and think they can help you.

Often they’re fairly complimentary about your website, saying that they liked it, and thought it deserved more attention. They’ll even suggest that they have already spent time checking ...
