Looking into a few wide open niche markets online.
35,500 monthly searches and a CPC of .07 with no competitors... well why not! ;) #seomarketing

So it's all about engagement right? I am doing an experiment with my G+ cover.

I changed my G+ cover photo to a call-to-action piece of copywriting that should appeal to just about everyone. I also made it responsive-friendly so mobile users will experience my photo as a part of the total graphic matching the rounded images.

It should increase overall engagement resulting in more followers... unless you dislike cats, dogs, money, or food.

What are your thoughts?
G+ and share, it is always appreciated. Cheers!

I just finished my new responsive Google+ profile cover. Trying to increase engagement outside of what I normally write about.

So very, very true.  Content is king, and pretty graphics don't have the meat of a typed post.

6 weeks to 6 months is such a wide scope, but it is the truth about how long it can take you to rank for a keyword. Sometimes even 9 months.

I agree, Yoast is a joke, and it's meant for the masses. I think the biggest hurdle to overcome with wordpress is the lack of ability to do proper SEO.

Plugins like Yoast are not the answer. We use Genesis by StudioPress and have gotten some good results with the basic functions of that system.

Whenever I do SEO with wordpress I have to go into the theme header files and chop away at the meta. I've even gone as far as setting up my own CRM system in MySQL to separately import the proper SEO. 

as for our site now...

We were showing up in Google SERP page #2, now vanished.
We are on Bing for multiple relevant keywords for our site page1 and page2.

We have restructured the site, and have updated the site to a blog format keeping everything in-site, with limited external links at all. Mainly our goal is to keep users on our pages for as long as possible, across all of our content.

At the moment I am focusing right now on G+ exposure to see if that helps regain some traction with Google.

Great video as always Josh, thank you for sharing.

I think that well presented information is always a good thing, however most infographics are complete overkill. Using a great deal of time to creatively develop a way to present that information takes away from time to develop new ideas and business. I have seen complex infographics that could be summed up in a sentence or two.
