Picking the right Call To Action is more than just grabbing a button from Google image search.

Yeah - I started writing again. Let's see if I can keep it up this time :)
One of the biggest things I do for clients when we start looking at conversion metrics is taking a hard look at what their call to action is. Usually it's some variation of this:

Always a good read from Doc.
With hundreds of voices clamoring to be heard, most professing to be God’s gift to SEO, it can seem impossible to figure out who to listen to. The fact that there is so much disagreement in what they all have to say makes it even tougher. So how do you pick the right voice to …

How can a cut puppy ever lose?
 
Is it possible for someone with less than 1000 followers to get equivalent engagement on Google+ as Guy Kawasaki with more than 6M? The answer is YES!

Once again Jim brings up some very good points about the state of our industry and those reporting on it.

Isn't the entire process of penalizing a domain like this similar to arresting someone that rents former crack house/apartment? They don't sell crack, they don't cook meth, but because a former tenant (you don't buy a domain, you rent it so it isn't even really yours) did those things you can now 'go to jail' for them as if you had done them yourself? 

It doesn't matter how much you fix it up, or what you do to build something new, that fact that in the past it was used for something Google does not approve of, the current tenant is at risk for being penalized for something they had no control over.

I had no idea that this was even a thing. I have got to start budgeting more time for research and training and pick my head up from work more often.

This topic comes up a couple times a year, I wonder if anything will every come of it in the long term? And more importantly, will clients ever really care?

+Jey Pandian  put together a great list of things you need to know to speed up your website. It's amazing that people still aren't doing everything they can to get the most of our they site performance. 
Can you load your website in a blink of an eye? In 2010, Google announced to the world that website speed is now a SEO ranking factor in its algorithms. Research from Google indicates that significantly less engagement is seen when Google.com slows […]

I hear this argument a lot more than I think we should. In an effort to explain why pay for performance can be a very bad idea I put my thoughts and reasons down.

Ruefully true to life. I've been feeling like this more since hearing that Google bought Nest Labs last year. How much closer to home can it get than knowing where and when electricity is being used in my home?

Story
Tagline
I'm not obsolete, yet
Introduction
When I grow up, I want to be a jeweler, a glass maker, an artist, learn to play guitar and maybe a semi-pro fisherman. I spent 10 years as a jewelry designer and I miss it terribly. I do plan to go back soon though.

Right now I'm an internet marketer (I hate being called an SEO - SEO is a small part of what I do, it's not who I am) specializing in helping businesses define their online and offline goals and then achieving them. 

I love the startup process. Whether it's one of mine or helping someone else start theirs, I love being involved, mentoring, and talking about startups.
Bragging rights
My wife and I recently celebrated being married for 25 years. I really can't believe that she has put up with my crap for that long, but I love her for being there all along. I also have an amazing daughter. She walks a path I would not have chosen for her, but I am thrilled that we helped give her the tools to be able to find that path on her own, and enjoy being on it.
