I have clients who would benefit by interacting with some of the G+ communities, but they don't want to spend the time learning about it if Google isn't going to support G+.
I haven't been following the issue hard nor have I followed commentary on it. I think I'd test with searches to see if you can find good examples wherein you are finding personalized results in serps for various queries.
Is it possible there are less queries showing in searches from G+ friends or communities??? Now I don't know. I'd look for them.
Here's an article written for web devs: http://www.newfangled.com/the_way_you_design_web_content_is_about_to_change
The graphic artists I work with love this concept, but I've cautioned them it probably will not work for every client, as far as SEO is concerned. Have you also been asked to SEO this type of design?
The page that was removed from Google's index is a blog post about employee birthdays, e.g. the employees who had birthdays in the month of November (the actual date is not given). The client has been doing this for years and has had no reason to think that anybody has a problem with it.
The page is not one that is at all related to the client's services, but site traffic from Oct. to Nov. was down by 25%. We don't have historical data so don't know if this is a normal drop. Would the request to remove a page from the index have had a negative impact on the overall site?
It would be great to get your ideas. I don't know if I should contact Google or just keep an eye on the next similar post.
There are several forms that the writing sample can take, but it is usually in PDF form.
So, the question is really in two parts - is this a dup content risk, and if yes, the best way to configure the page (noindex, rel=canonical)?
Keywords | Company Name, Location
When I did a Google search for the company today, the first result was displayed simply as
with a link to the Home page.
There are other companies with the same name in different states, and the rest of the SERPS listings looked like full title tags.
Presumably my client's link was listed first because of my browsing history (not to mention gmail) and location. But why would the title tag have been dropped? Does anybody know when Google started doing this?
I have always been a little nerdy and a tad geeky - characteristics that were assets during the many years I worked in marketing, advertising, and sales. When I decided to pursue SEO, my colleagues said that made perfect sense. It's true: I find keyword research fun and data fascinating.
My marketing background drives the approach I take to a SEO project, which often requires first improving the message, branding, usability or lead generation strategy. The client and I will pull in other professionals - web developer, graphic artist, copywriter - as needed to refine our efforts. It's the synergy of learning, creating and supporting that I love.
I'm lucky to have the resources of the Washington, DC, area available. The work environment here is incredibly supportive and focused on collaboration.
