Why Google Doesn’t Like to Talk About Updates

Fri, 08 May 2015 16:13:35 +0000

One of the recurring themes I’ve been seeing in the past few months, comes from web publishers trying to confirm when and where Google updates actually happen. This type of thing has been going on for years and it’s not a new topic, what is new is that Google is now confirming that there is a lot of contradictory information ...

Why You Should Avoid Numbers in Your URL

Tue, 05 Aug 2014 13:47:16 +0000

While linkbait posts aren’t as popular as they once were, top 10 lists have been popular ever since Moses came down from the mount with his top 10 list of “thou shalt nots.” Magazines like Rolling Stone will always have top 500 playlists and AFI will always publish top 100 movies lists. However, as a responsible publisher, marketer, and SEO ... [Continue reading Why You Should Avoid Numbers in Your URL]

How Google Plans to Steal More of Your Traffic

Tue, 24 Jun 2014 16:33:27 +0000

At the SMX Advanced Conference in June of 2014, Danny Sullivan had a Question and Answer session with Matt Cutts. During this session, Matt did a live search demo that, in my opinion, demonstrated that Google wants to take the search traffic it’s currently sending to other websites and keep it for themselves. I’ve embedded the video of the complete ... [Continue reading How Google Plans to Steal More of Your Traffic]

Reviews: Author HReview Plugin

Wed, 11 Sep 2013 17:10:00 +0000

Google’s current algorithm tends to favor sites with reviews, especially sites with review data that have the proper markup. However, for many small sites or sites that are concerned about the problems associated with user generated reviews, this can present a problem. One way to get around this problem is to create reviews from one expert author and publish that ... [Continue reading Reviews: Author HReview Plugin]

How to Speed Up Your WordPress Website

Thu, 05 Sep 2013 14:05:33 +0000

Right now, wordpress is running on over 10 million websites, or just over 18% of the websites currently on the internet. While wordpress isn’t without its problems, there’s no denying it’s a popular, easy to set up, and easy to use CMS.

Why Simple Websites Will Always Lead to Better SEO

Thu, 15 Aug 2013 17:14:00 +0000

Earlier this year it was discovered that Google was having a problem crawling Apple’s website and, as a result, direct links to apps weren’t showing in the results. The next few days involved lots of finger pointing, blame shuffling, and hang wringing; but, a few non public changes later, things were sorted out. This, however, set a very bad example that ...

How Google Continues to Kill Organic Results

Tue, 13 Aug 2013 17:04:17 +0000

As someone who has been involved in the search industry for over a decade, one of the things that really bothers me is how Google is slowly but inevitably taking all of the “above the fold” organic search result space and giving it to paid results, Google web properties, and to the Google Knowledge graph. Recently, I was looking for ... [Continue reading How Google Continues to Kill Organic Results]

Why You Should Blog Less and Update More

Tue, 26 Feb 2013 17:49:25 +0000

While there aren’t many marketers who still feel you need to blog everyday, most will agree that you should blog often for a variety of reasons. However, I’m going suggest that it might be time to bring that sacred cow to the slaughter house and that, the more posts you publish, the more of a liability you are creating for ...

Tue, 19 Feb 2013 18:00:32 +0000

There have been many debates about the value social media plays in having content rank. While nothing has been definitively resolved, it has been shown to be beneficial in the short term. In this post I’d like to take a look at a different aspect: the impact social media has on crawling and indexing. Recently, I started working on a ...
