The Conjoined Twins: SEO and Social Media - Happy day after the 4th of July. I am a little late in my day with the post because everyone who was off decided to write in with questions and  it’s been a get caught up from all the people that also celebrated kinda day. I received a question on Saturday as I was on my way to the beach that jumped out of my mailbox flashing the words blog post on it. The question went something like this. If you’re the SEO lady, what do you care what I do with m...

Why Everyone Needs a Backup Plan For Their Website - The concept seems so simple, doesn’t it? Backup your website.  In addition to web hosting, we also register domains and have been with Tucows for nearly 16 years. About two years ago they asked us if we would be willing to handle all the people that have bad web hosting companies and domain resellers that don’t handle their responsibilities to customer properly. So we agreed. Since then we have seen and heard some of the craziest domain a...

Building for Speed: WordPress, The Web Host and Cache - So this week it seemed was Google Speed week. So as both the web hosting company and the SEO company, we get a lot of how do I fix questions.  Inevitably, it’s not usually a web hosting problem as first presented to us. (‘Google says my site is slow. Fix my hosting”) Most times it’s a design question  When these calls come, the first thing we do is look at the Google Page Speed Test, which can be sparse on solutions. Also, Pingdom, giv...

Well I Did It… Facebook vs. Periscope - I have been teaching Houston SEO for over a decade and I always said I would not do one particular thing. Well today I relented and I officially think this might be okay. So what did I do?  I streamed my class live via Periscope. I did it for a few reasons. But first let me tell you why I have been unwilling to stream previously. Students  actually make the class. Each class is easily tailor my discussion to each of my participant. If I remove them fr...

It’s All In The Delivery: SEO is Everything - Trying to retrain customers might be as hard as to train Harley, my 9-year-old Dachshund. There are a lot of similarities too.  Neither understands that I tell them no not because I’m a big meanie, but because what they are wanting to do will hurt them. Sometimes they do things and try to sneak it by me because what I don’t know won’t hurt me. In Harley’s case, he likes to steal the food off my plate. In the case of the customer, sometimes they ...

The Bulleted List, Mobile And a Topics Page - I got this question from one of my students.  It was a question where  I could just reply “Yes” to, or I could seize an opportunity  At its core it’s a web design question, but also has pretty deep implications for SEO if done properly. So here is the challenge. He has a long bulleted list that has some definitions on it. And if you put that page into mobile, it would be too much time is is fear. Now his question went on to ask if he should make...

Invasion of the Millennials - I got an interesting email this week while trying to solve the great logo debate that went on within our company. The question was why do we care what the Millenials think all of a sudden?  As a digital marketer, I should not need to explain what a Millenial is. Or, more than likely you are one. For us non-Millenials, we don’t understand wearing Pajamas in public. We remember when AOL was $600 a month, when phone calls weren’t free and when area codes actually ...

Basic SEO: Why Doesn’t My Site Rank Anymore - I always say my customers make the absolute best blog ideas and the best training experiences for the minions. Case in point, one of our very old customers called me today to tell me that their site isn’t ranking any longer and why. Now they on and off had employed us to do SEO, at least two tours of duty on this site. I think the last time we touch the site was maybe in 2011. And we all know how much time had passed and how rapidly Google conti...

What Do you look like Naked? Or Identifying SEO Issues - So I started out today like any other normal day. Got up, looked over our sites.  I talked to a few customers. Had a meeting over our new logo and then logged into webmaster tools. Eh or should I say Search Console. I went to one of my favorite places to identify issues with a website, Content Keyword. And the one for this site let me know that everything we well with the site. Google understands what my site is about, thankfully. But...
