7 Advantages of On-Site SEO Training

SEO training is top of mind for many business owners and managers but it can be difficult to find quality training that doesn’t take you away from your business for multiple days and doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. There are some great public workshops available but there aren’t many alternatives for someone who […]

Can I Restore my Google Plus Account?

This isn’t exactly the topic I wanted to jump-start my blogging efforts. It’s a little embarrassing to admit that I accidentally deleted my Google Plus account this morning, at 11:48 am to be exact. There is little to no information available about how or even if you can restore an account.  Writing about it seems […]

“No Hat SEO” = A License to Kill (Your Online Presence)

We have white hat, black hat, and grey hat SEO; but I think we need to add “no hat SEO” into the mix to describe people who claim to be an SEO professional but lack the knowledge they need to do things the right way.

I remember hours and hours of meetings to review every page on the site.  The endless conversations to […]

SEO Workshop Series – The Dance Between Search and Social

I can’t believe how fast the last three weeks have flown by.  I truly enjoyed preparing for each one of the  SEO workshops, but The Dance Between Search and Social has been my favorite. I find the relationships and interplay between search engine optimization and social media marketing fascinating to say the least.  I can’t […]

SEO Workshop Series – How to Create Content Search Engines Can Find

The need to create quality content has been written about extensively; almost every article or post I read (or write) about search engine optimization or social media contains a reference to the importance of ‘quality content,’ but there seems to be something missing.  The missing element is how to create content search engines can find.  If you write great […]

SEO Workshop Series – How Search Engines Find Your Content

This might be cheating a little, since I already posted links to my slideshow and first every Google+ hangout (How Search Engines Find Your Content), but since I presented the third and final SEO workshop in the series today, I thought it was a good opportunity to post the workshops in a consecutive series. I wrote about […]
