Search Engine Optimization
A few months ago, I help to launch a website for a customer. This particular customer’s old website consisted of 4 different WordPress installations.
Yes, you read the last sentence correctly: 4 different WordPress websites.
At the time this customer contacted me inquiring about search marketing services, they had no clue that their website and 3 blogs were operating 4 different WordPress installs in a shared hosting environment.

Amidst big brands such as Amazon, Walmart, and the list goes on, small businesses account for quite a bit of market share.
Google estimates that there are approximately 115 million small businesses in the world while the United States of Small Business Administration Office of Advocacy estimates that there are 28.8 million businesses in the US alone.
Of course, there’s much discussion to be had pertaining to what specific attributes must be realized to qualify as a small business. But I’m not writing to debate those finer points.

But here’s something to ponder. Would you be interested in uniquely differentiating your business from the competition using an emoji domain? Continue reading

And of course, there was not a shortage of domain hobbyists, investors, and professionals in attendance at Amazon’s campus (Terry Avenue) in downtown Seattle.
Don’t you just despise those long, ugly and gnarly WordPress Media Library links?
You know the ones I’m talking about, right?
The ones that looking something like this:
I don’t know about you, but I long to make the “wp-content/uploads/2017/04/21/“ section of WordPress Media Library links vanish like visiting the Bermuda Triangle. But how? Continue reading
If you operate a website long enough, then you’re likely to encounter a situation or circumstance that requires a redirect at some.
What are redirects you ask?
Simply put, redirects are primarily used to preserve SEO authority of a website page or an entire website.
And here’s why redirects are important:
You don’t want to lose invaluable SEO authority you’ve slaved so many days writing and sharing content to be crowned by Google with page one search rankings, right? Continue reading
It has been said that a “picture is worth a thousands words”.
You don’t have to look to far these days to guarantee that statement.
And from the looks of it, it appears that we as a society are moving more and more towards pictures telling the stories of our lives.
Or maybe we’re coming full circle with the use of modernized pictures from our primitive years.
Nevertheless, we’re not talking about just any ole’ pictures. We’re talking about EMOJIS! Emojis can do now wrong and are on at this very moment, being used by all walks of life.
