Are You Making These Seven Dumb SEO Mistakes With The Mobile Version of Your Website?

You're only getting a fraction of the traffic you could be getting if you just rely on the "desktop version" of your website. Not only should you have a mobile version of your site, you should consider doing some SEO so that you can be found on mobile devices. With that said, don't let your SEO company sell you worthless services, and don't make these dumb mistakes: Mistake #1 - You decide to build a ".mobi" TLD version of your site so that you can be indexed and ranked. Why It's A Mistake: A ".mobi" domain name is an extension that you can buy in addition to your ".com" domain extension. This ".mobi" extension is supposed to help you rank well in Google, Yahoo, and other search engines. However, there is no evidence that this extension benefits you at all. In fact, there is some evidence that shows that Google has more ".com" websites indexed than ".mobi". If...

By , posted on

The next study that we will discuss today are some of the common misconceptions of targeted traffic, including the different ways that it will affect your website, and other things like how web traffic works to increase your SEO and in the long term. Web traffic works with itself in a rather exponential way which is to say that after some time of promoting your website through conventional means and then increasing your viewership with targeted web traffic you should see a steady gain in the amount of organic traffic you get as people who are interested in what you have to offer will start coming to your website to get more info or more of the same content that you promise. The first example that we will explore is the idea that all traffic is roughly the same. People think that web traffic is all about the numbers and increasing your website stats but in reality this is very far from the truth, you need to realize that people are viewing your website, real people that will...

Google & Facebook, What the Heck are You Guys Doing?

We all know that the first few weeks of 2012 have not been kind to Google. We've witnessed one mess after another unfold for the search giant, and none of these issues show any signs of slowing down. But is Google the only company in hot water? Maybe in the public's eye, but in reality, it's not the only tech giant that's doing questionable things. Its social media rival, Facebook, may also soon go under fire because of a recent "political" update that's being frowned upon by a lot of users and privacy watch dogs. (More on this later.) Let's break down the recent actions of our admired tech companies, shall we? 3 Strikes for Google: Buying Links, Antitrust, & Fraud Strike 1: As we previously reported, Google was recently caught in a fiasco that involved buying links and posting thin content, in efforts to promote the Chrome browser.

Website Product Placement towards Visitors

By , posted on

There are some very important tasks to take into consideration when trying to market your product to your visitors. This means there is a very distinct difference between a poorly put together website and one that has been professionally done, people will take notice of this one way or another and it may even cost you some sales. Unfortunately this can often mean that you will lose some sales until you fix up the current problems with any type of marketing attempt on your website. This really only affects people who are trying to market their own product, or their own service, as these types of things will rely one hundred percent to actually make the sale. If you are trying to sell something that is uniquely yours then you will not have the marketing skills from a typical widely produced product to back the actual quality of what you are providing. For example, lets pretend like you were trying to sell some different headphone based products. These headphones might be sold from...

However, this industry is rife with scam artists and people selling snake oil. Fortunately, you can protect yourself by understanding how major search engines, like Google work (and, more importantly, how they don't work). If your SEO company tells you any of the following, then fire them: 1) "Googlebot doesn’t read CSS, so don't worry about validation and don't worry about those hidden "divs." This lie is insidious because you're hiring your SEO company to help you rank higher in the SERPs. Some SEO companies engage in shady tactics like burying hidden "divs" in the CSS while telling you not to worry about their tactics because Google won't find out, and neither will your competitors. Google checks for those hidden divs, by the way. You...
