SEO Tip of the Day - Feb. 13th, 2012 - Basic SEO Troubleshooting With XML Sitemaps

Monday's SEO Tip of the day is a good one. I know it helped me out. lol

Quote:
Despite the fact that sitemaps are simply lists of canonical URLs submitted to search engines, it's amazing how rare it is to come across a perfect one. Issues often arise when large site owners use sitemap auto generation tools that aren't configured properly. These sites typically come with challenges for search engine crawlers like pagination and URLs generated by faceted navigation.

Spiders decide what pages to crawl based on URLs placed in a queue from previous crawls and that list is augmented with URLs from XML sitemaps. Therefore, sitemaps can be a key factor in ensuring search crawlers access and assess the content most eligible to be seen in search engine results.

The following is a quick overview of search engine sitemap guidelines and limitations followed by a technique to help identify crawling and indexation issues using mutiple sitemaps in Google Webmaster Tools.

SEO Tip of the Day - Feb. 15th, 2012 - SEO: A Force for Good

This is a good blog post to read. It's not boring for one thing.

Quote:
This article is the guaranteed* one stop shop that’s going to give you everything you need to succeed online. If you follow the advice in this article you could be making so much money that King Midas will be saying that he has your touch. Complete strangers may prostrate themselves at your feet asking you to merely turn your gaze upon their site for the briefest of brief moments in order for it to catapult up the rankings and sell so many of their widgets that they’ll need to open a new overflow factory in Walla Walla staffed by the last remaining Oompa Loompas.

While you go find your credit card so that you can pay the nominal fee to read the rest of this article, let me tell you a quick story.

Back in the early '80s there was a company that...

SEO Tip of the Day - Feb. 17th, 2012 - Full-Bodied SEO: Looking Past Keywords

Good morning. It's Friday and i'm going out to McDonalds for breakfast in 1 hour. I'm sure you didn't want to hear this news so i'll get to the SEO Tip of the day post already.

Quote:
Just like degusting a fine wine to appreciate its full-bodied flavor, don’t omit the chronology that it’s the process of the grapes aging combined with a semblance of subordinate processes that merge a plethora of complex layers into simplified notes to cultivate a delectable, yet exquisite fine wine. In parallel, SEO is quite similar.

While most blindly assume that SEO is about keywords (which is partially true), real SEO is involves grasping the underlying metrics and logic that search engines use to determine which websites are authoritative and which others are not.

The real goal of SEO is to create...

SEO Tip of the Day - Feb. 23th, 2012 -Write Title Tags For Search Engine Optimization

For a minute i thought today was Friday but it's not. Anyways, here is Thursdays SEO tip of the day. lol

How to Write Title Tags For Search Engine Optimization

Quote:
Today we're going back to basics! And nothing is more basically important to a site than properly written title tags. You know the ones that used to appear in the little blue bars in your browsers. Most modern browsers try to hide these, though that doesn't stop them being helpful!

So what is a title tag? Why is it important to SEO, and how do you write the darn things?

SEO Tip of the Day - Feb. 24th, 2012 - Web Site Migration Guide - Tips For SEOs

Todays tip is for the SEO folks.

Quote:
Site migrations occur now and again for a various reasons but arguably are one of those areas many SEOs and site owners alike do not feel very comfortable with. Typically, site owners want to know in advance what the impact would be, often asking for information like potential traffic loss, or even revenue loss. On the other hand, SEOs need to make sure they follow best practice and avoid common pitfalls in order to make sure traffic loss will be kept to a minimum.

Disclaimer: The suggested site migration process isn't exhaustive and certainly there are several alternative or complimentary activities, depending on the size of the web site as well as the nature of the undertaken migration. I hope that despite its length, the post will be useful to SEOs and web masters alike.

Phase 1: Establishing Objectives, Effort & Process

This is where the whole migration plan will be established taking into account the main objectives, time constrains, effort, and available resources. This phase is....

SEO Tip of the Day - Feb. 27th, 2012 - SEO for eCommerce

Today's SEO tip is for the eCommerce folks.

Quote:
eCommerce sites are some of the largest in the world. With thousands or even millions of products come thousands or millions of links, which means that implementing and managing a SEO strategy for an eCommerce site is extremely difficult and time consuming.

Having optimized content on product description pages is one of the most important SEO factors for eCommerce because they contain the most valuable content though out the entire site. The product description page is where the customer finds pictures, product specifications, reviews, and pricing options to eventually make a buying decision.

Beware of duplicate content problems that...

SEO Tip of the Day - Feb. 28th, 2012 - When is SEO inappropriate?

This is a good SEO tip for today.

Quote:
Remember that pages on a domain don't exist in isolation. Domains on a C-block don't exist in isolation. Resources are interconnected. One requires some holistic systems thinking to properly determine when it's inappropriate not to SEO a page or a domain. Nevertheless, SEO is not always appropriate right?

When is SEO inappropriate?

SEO is inappropriate when one doesn't want a page or domain to be found, crawled, or indexed by a search engine

Motives for this isolation vary, and include:

SEO Tip of the Day - Feb. 29th, 2012 - Non-Google Link Strategy

Hmmmm, leap year and i'm thinking about... O wait, let's do a SEO tip for today. lol

Quote:
My prior column "Link for People, Not Search Engines," was met with a few favorable responses and responses asking for more concrete advice/examples. Sticking with my “link for people” theme, let’s look at a real life example to hopefully provide some clarification.

To begin, let’s rid ourselves of the term “link builder.” Link building is a terribly inaccurate description of the approaches that savvy link developers and link marketers can use for generating links to client's content.

For the remainder of this column, let's forget the search engines exist, or say for the sake of argument that you already have number one rankings at Google, so you don't need any more links for rank, you want links for direct click traffic which has a chance at converting into business.

Where Would You Start the Process of Looking for Links?

Let’s look at one real life successful link marketing project. Business names have been...

SEO Tip of the Day -March 1st, 2012 - SEO Essentials For Migrating Websites

For a few seconds I thought it was Friday but it's not.

Todays SEO tip is as follows:

Lisa wrote this from the SMX West event on her blog.

Quote:
Ready for another one? I hope so. Up this time we have Jessica Bowman, Rhea Drysdale, Ryan Jones, Dana Lookadoo, and Shari Thurow. My wrists and forearms are on fire so no banter this time around, just signal.

Up first is Dana Lookadoo.

Dana takes the podium and immediately starts rapping the name of her company – Yo! Yo! SEO! So, I mean, there’s that right off the bat. Let’s see what else she has in store for us.

Avoiding Migration Fallout

Search engine optimization throughout the site migration process CAN result in little to no loss in rankings and traffic, improved impressions and CTR, and minimal fallout.

Let’s play a game!

Imagine that you’re an SEO. You get the client announcement that they’ll be migrating their site in 3 weeks. Most of the site is in...

Good morning and here is your SEO Tip.

Hang with me, friends. It’s time for the last session of SMX West. Are you ready? Can you even handle it? Take a deep breath and let’s close this thing out.

Up on stage we have Allison Hartsoe, Dixon Jones, and Dave Lloyd. Chris Sherman was supposed to be moderating this session but he’s not feeling well after lunch so Dixon is going to fill in for him.

Dixon starts us off by asking everyone to start clapping and shouting to get some more people in the room. We do it. I’m not sure it worked, though. At least we tried.

Predicting the future is about two things:

SEO Tip of the Day -March 5th, 2012 - SEO Strategy for New Domains

This tip is for people who are about to buy a domain and start some sort of website.

Quote:
When you first launch a new website, it’s a blank slate in the eyes of Google and the other search engines. Sure, the search engine spiders are able to glean some information about your site from the content and keywords that are present, but at first, they aren’t able to effectively measure the authority of your site based on these words alone.

Over time, they’ll make this value determination based on a number of different factors, including the number and quality of sites linking to your page, the number of links and shares your site receives on social networking sites and the hundreds of other elements that go into the natural search algorithm. But when your site has been newly launched, you’ll have the...

SEO Tip of the Day -March 7th, 2012 - Finding Converting Keywords

Today's tip is about finding converting Keywords.

Quote:
It takes all kinds of keywords to make up a website, from head terms to the long tail, and different types of keywords accomplish different goals. Some drive tons of traffic, others are important for establishing authority.

Then there are the keywords that convert. If you’re trying to sell a product or service through your website, keywords that convert at a high rate are an enormously valuable marketing asset.

So how do you find those super-valuable converting keywords, and make them work harder for you? Here’s how...

SEO Tip of the Day -March 11th, 2012 - Managing Googlebot & Your Mobile Sites

Todays tip is related to mobile SEO.

Quote:
In December 2011 Google announced that it now has a smartphone Googlebot-Mobile. Historically, Googlebot-Mobile has concerned itself only with mobile sites designed for feature phones, so this is a pretty significant development. Today's column is going to discuss how to think about Googlebot, Googlebot-Mobile and your mobile web site.

As noted in this recent mobile SEO podcast with Cindy Krum one of the first decisions you need to make is what types of devices you’re targeting. If you don’t have many feature phone users who are trying to access your site, you may not need to support them, and you can focus your mobile phone site on smartphone devices.

This impacts how you set up your site. Mobile sites that don’t support feature phones should use a same URL strategy - i.e. one where the mobile content renders on the exact same URL as the desktop content, and smartphone users are served the mobile version of the site using user agent detection (we call this the "Same URL" strategy). The reason you would prefer this is that....

SEO Tip of the Day -March 14, 2012 - Implementing Pagination Attributes Correctly

Good morning v7ner's, here is todays tip.

Quote:
Google’s latest blog post provides details and a video from Maile Ohye about how they handle the pagination attributes within a page’s source code. You can use these attributes to indicate pages in a series (such as a multi-page article or set of product listings), which enables Google to cluster the pages into a single entity and combine their indexing and other properties (such as incoming link value). Using these attributes is trickier than it may seem at first glance, so below, a few tips from the blog post, video, and the recent SMX West session I moderated, which featured Maile. (Keep in mind that currently, only Google supports these attributes.)

almost Friday!!

Quote:
The money you’re able to make from a top position in search engine result pages (SERPs) often determines the effort you're willing to take. Search engine marketing (SEM) is maturing and now that there is little secret sauce left it comes down to ability and willingness to put in the required effort. Increasingly the ability to make money from a particular keyword is the key to successful search engine optimization (SEO).

The Effort You Should Take

SEO Tip of the Day - March 19, 2012.

Google Places Ranking Factors – The PhD Version

Quote:
Top 3 Factors To Improve Ranking For Pages In Integrated Results
Places page category matches a broader category than that of the search (search for “pizza”, Places category = restaurant). This only applies of course if there is a broader category. This applies for both primary and secondary Places page categories.
The search category appears in the business name (“Rocky’s Pizza” for a “Seattle pizza” search).
The search category appears in the “at a glance” section.

SEO Tip of the Day - March 20, 2012 - Die Hard SEO: Search Marketing for Underdogs

Todays SEO tip is a good read. I love the movie though. lol

Quote:
He was outnumbered and outgunned. They had the manpower and the resources. He didnt even have shoes. But on a summer night in 1988, John McClane triumphed over a group of terrorist criminals, using nothing but intelligence, attitude and sheer willpower.

In search marketing, we are all up against giants. This post is about doing more with less. Its about how to be the underdog and win. Its about being the Bruce Willis of search marketing.

Know what the competition is up to:

John McClanes first priority was to figure out who he was up against. He checked the bad guys for IDs after he killed them, he stole a radio and listened in, he peered around corners and got to know the enemy.

This kind of competitive analysis is also your first step. Before you...
