Search Engine Marketing
One year out, and another year in! And with a new year, brings a slew of new domain investing opportunities and perspectives to explore.
Over the last 6 months or so, I’ve shared a number of domain interviews from technologists to designers to entrepreneurs to investors to marketplaces and more…
Picking up from where we left off last, one of the latest opportunities to take hold in the domain industry are emoji domains.
Until now, most interviews I’ve covered have highlighted independent investors or traders investing in emoji domains. Continue reading
Have you ever wondered how to track online ad or link traffic from external websites to your website using Google Analytics?
Tracking online traffic, web traffic in general, is often a topic causing many persons to glaze over, literally and figuratively.
Truth is tracking web traffic is quite simple. In fact, you encounter trackable links daily as you use the web to perform a variety of tasks, yet you may not have realized it upon first glance.
Nevertheless, there’s no excuse today for website owners and operators to be in the dark on the origin of website traffic.
There are a growing number of non-paid and paid web analytics services available, varying in level of complexity, to help uncover where from and who is sending traffic to your website.
And although I won’t cover all the the tools, there is a FREE and easy-to-use tool that allows you to track web traffic to your website. Continue reading
About a decade or so ago before Twitter and Facebook were the behemoths they are today, I launched, owned, and operated an emergency and disaster communications website aiming to help displaced folks re-connect to their friends and family in the time of natural or man-made disasters.
Back in those days, I was a one-man shop doing everything from graphic design, web design, coding and programming, database management, SEO, sale and marketing, and everything else under the sun.
One of the many things I learned and perfected was the art of writing customer-centric content that engaged, educated, and entertained the customer while also commanding search ranking results with the help of syndicated content. Continue reading
Welcome back! It’s been a bit since I last graced you with an interview about a personal or company brand using a unique domain name to promote their digital presence.
Today’s interview is that and more! Not only does this founder use a new domain extension to promote an educational book and website geared towards basic computer science, software quality and programming in general, but he’s branded an emoji name to boot.
Grab a beverage and snack, and read about why and how an energetic, 30 year-old programmer and former researcher launched a coding website using .energy and emoji domain names. Continue reading
You’re likely reading this article because your web traffic has plateaued, or has yet to organically rank for highly competitive keywords.
Most everyone (okay, not everyone) knows the name of the game for bloggers or website owners is how much organic search traffic a website realizes.
If you’ve ever attempted to launch a website of any sort, then you’ve likely encountered the difficulties and challenges in getting your website to rank across major search engines.
I’m here today to change your unsatisfactory experience into one of satisfaction, and hopefully equip you to realize greater search exposure and traffic conversions for your website. Continue reading
A week or so ago, I introduced you to the Facebook Graph API using PHP.
Although the Facebook Graph API can be used to retrieve a trove of wide-ranging data, I specifically showed you step-by-step how to retrieve the total count for a unique URL’s likes, shares, and comments.
A few weeks ago, one of my many websites crossed the thousand like club for Facebook likes.
It was a time to celebrate! Why?
Well, this particular website is a local and somewhat a hyper micro-niche. To be honest, I’m surprised and elated this website has 1000+ likes.
Nevertheless, crossing the 1000+ Facebook like club renders the like button differently.
Instead of being able to now see that there are 1,024 likes, the Facebook like button for this specific website now only shows “1K”.
And because I don’t have a Facebook Fan, Business, or Profile page associated with this website, this adds yet another degree of difficulty in attempting to understand exactly how many likes, shares, and comments exist for website URL, also known as website domain name. Continue reading
