SEO and Online Marketing: Working Together

By Cenay Nailor | Online Marketing , SEO

A successful online business will have a few things in common, but first, here are a couple of concepts you really need to be clear on.

You can build the very best website on the planet, but unless people can find it, you won’t sell a thing.
You can get hundreds, even thousands of visitors to your site every day, but unless you are offering what they are looking for, you won’t sell a thing.

Both of these concepts are what search engine optimization is all about.

Teaser Video: SEO Powersuite

By Cenay Nailor | Online Marketing , SEO

I just purchased an amazing tool to help me focus my SEO efforts, build inbound links, audit my results and check my rankings. What can I say, it was time to take my SEO and link portfolio to the next level and some of this wasn’t being handled by Market Samurai or SEO Elite, both tools I purchased for this purpose.

And because I am more than a little willing to gloat (’cause YOU don’t have this tool and I do), allow me to show you what you are missing.

Headspace2: The End Of An Era in SEO

By Cenay Nailor | FAQ , Plugins , SEO , Wordpress

Headspace2 is no longer supported. I can’t tell you how sad I am. Frustrated. Confused. Maybe a little bitter.

Headspace2 was an SEO plugin I found some time ago. As anyone who follows me knows, it’s a plugin I have proclaimed long and loud. I install it on all my client blogs. I teach how to set it up. I encouraged it’s use far and wide. And now it’s gasping it’s last.

Keyword Ranking Now More Important

By Cenay Nailor | SEO

Professional bloggers know the value of a good keyword ranking for the exact keyword their target market is searching for, but it just got much more important to be ranked highly for your search terms.

Google has released Google Instant, a search tool reminiscent of the Quicken style searching introduced when computers were still in their adolescence. As you type, results begin appearing. Type a bit more, the results change to show the “new information”.

Since there is no need to scroll to see additional results, searchers are focusing more on the results that appear at the top of the results page.

Trackback, Pingback and Getting Found

By Cenay Nailor | FAQ , SEO

First, you need to know that it isn’t YOUR blog settings that are allowing you to trackback to another blog, but rather THEIR settings. Each blog owner has the choice to allow it or not (including you).

On Wordpress, they can turn this option on or off at Dashboard | Settings | Discussion. It is the “Allow link notifications from other blogs (pingbacks and trackbacks)” in the Default article settings section.

Benefits of Search Engine Optimization

By Earl Juanico | SEO

Sometimes a search engine optimization company will miss that obvious question posed by prospective clients and presuppose that the benefits of search engine optimization are apparent to all people. While cashing out a couple thousand on a search engine optimization operation is commonsensical to some, others may find it difficult to shell out cash unless they understand the true benefits of search engine optimization that is transmitted on to their business.

Headspace2 Tutorial: Exploring SEO Through Plugins

By Cenay Nailor | Featured , SEO

A recent coaching session covered the SEO benefits of installing and using Headspace2 to increase your Online Marketing and Personal Branding. As members of that call will recognize, about 45 minutes was cut from this video. All the wasted time on technical difficulties is gone.

SEO: Correcting A Misconception

By Cenay Nailor | SEO

Boy, I really hate it when this happens. Some *guru* will state something like “Install All In One SEO and you will be instantly found by Google”. What a load of horse-manure.

Let me correct this terrible misconception, before it destroys some small business blogger’s dream.

First and foremost, All In One SEO (AIE SEO) is a great plugin. I don’t want this post to sound like I am dissing the plugin itself. Only the guru’s accidental (?) misconception. Installing it is Step 1.

Just to recap the basics of SEO and inbound links though, you should understand that Google counts each inbound link to your post or page as a sort of *vote*. A pledge of support or an agreement from your peers (niche partners) that your content is relevant to the topic at hand.

SEO: Inbound Links Without Asking Or Spamming

By Cenay Nailor | SEO

You have started your Search Engine Optimization education and have learned that inbound links count as *votes* for your site when Google ranks you website. Come on, everyone knows this right?

So, how do you get those coveted inbound links?

You can surf for blogs in your niche that have a page rank, and contact them. You can then beg, borrow or wheedle a link from them. Good luck with that if you haven’t already established a relationship with them.

You can comment on their blog, on the posts that are most similar to the content you are posting. A good idea, but somewhat time consuming since it’s important when you comment, to add value to the conversation.

Or, you can use a built in …
