SEO Optimization

April 13th, 2006 Comments off

While the title of this post may seem strange to those of you that know what SEO stand for, it has come to my attentiont that this keyphrase is searched for very frequently on the web. Which of course means that good rankings for this term may provide some good traffic. Since this phrase is a little strange and redundant to people who know what SEO stands for, there isnt much competition for this keyword either. So, I thought I might try to capture some of this traffic with this post i my blog.

Google Adwords Tips

April 7th, 2006 Comments off

To make your adwords campaign more effective, there are two tips that may help you.

Capitalize on low price keywords
If you target thousands of low price keywords instead of only a few high price keywords – you can usually get the same/more traffic at a lower cost. Let me give you an example:

You manage a website that sells new cars. You begin your adwords PPC campaign searching for keywords to bid on. The common keyword “new car” may be searched for, say, 1000 times a day. Which seems like a good keyword to generate traffic to your site. However, “new car” has a PPC bid price of $4.50 a click. Lets say 100 people click on your ad which costs you $45/day. For 100 visitors. Now lets consider another option…

Google PR update

April 5th, 2006 Comments off

Looks like google is updating PR again. Most of my sites are experiencing an increase in PR across most google datacenters. This site, which is only a few months old, has jumped from a PR0 to a PR5. Not bad for a new website. Rankings in google have not a had a similar jump but that just goes to show you that PR doesnt have as much to do with rankings as people would like to beleive.

Keyword Directories – SEO File Structure

March 27th, 2006 Comments off

While it is important to use keywords within the content of a webpage, it also important to use keywords within the URL of a page. The simplest way to achieve keyword use in the URL is to create directories and filenames that contain keywords. Keyword use in directory names and file names is an indicator to the search engines that the content within that directory or file is relevant to the keyword.

Free Web Directory Resource

March 24th, 2006 Comments off

To promote your website it is often good advice to list your website in website directories. I have accumulated a list of directories below that do not require a reciprocal link and ultimately will allow you to add a link to your website for free. According to Matt Cutts, “the Google Guy”, the two most valuable directories are:
