Today's the EOL of Windows XP.  As of now, nearly 30% of the computers that access the internet are at risk of hacking.  http://customblogging.com/seomike/archives/windows/goodbye-friend

California's new law went into effect on 1/1.  Every commercial site with any traffic from CA must comply. http://goo.gl/yyFrOQ  Check paragraphs 4&5 of my own privacy policy to see how I chose to comply.

Google and Facebook are killing a client's page load times.  It's Google's HTTPS and Facebook's call to IRELAND that are making me unhappy: http://customblogging.com/seomike/archives/google/google-and-facebook-page-speed-issues

I recently wrote a post on how to communicate the value of SEO more effectively.  It's amazing when you compare the traffic that comes via organic to PPC traffic... and very apparent why Google wants to monetize more and more traffic by pushing down organic results (but that's a different post which is here: http://customblogging.com/seomike/archives/google/google-strikes-organic)

I know, I should tell you about blog posts during work hours to get the most attention but oh well, here I go. 

I just wrote a blog about some analysis you can do to motivate you during your site's low-volume months: http://customblogging.com/seomike/archives/analytics/normalize-seasonal-traffic

An oldie but a goodie.  This post came to mind today because a client's web development contractor didn't execute updates properly.  It went really poorly.  Don't make the same mistake with your site. http://customblogging.com/seomike/archives/seo-tips-tricks/handle-planned-time

Story
Tagline
I've been a professional SEO since 1997.
Introduction
I have been a professional Search Engine Optimizer (SEO) since 1997. I happily stumbled upon the industry by accident when some of my clients started asking what this internet thing was and how could they get their businesses online. That was March of 97 and I've been at it ever since.  Check out my website to see more about kansas city internet marketing
