On-site SEO  - 
 
I am using SemRush to identify and clean up issues on my site - http://www.sawwebmarketing.com/ and it returned a list of 'broken' links but when I follow the links they found that are broken all of them are good sites I am linking to. Is says they are 403 and 416 errors. If SemRush is having an issue with those links possibly Google is as well I am wonder. Thanks for any thoughts on why this might be happening! Have a great weekend!! :)

Seriously, am I wasting my time blogging? (even if I produce really good content?) I run an SEO agency and 98% of my business comes from speaking engagements and referrals and referral partners. That has been the best avenue (in my experience) to get in front of IDEAL seo clients who see the value in it and can afford to spend $1-2k a month for my services. I like writing and want to 'practice what I preach' but I don't want to waste my time either. I DO like the idea of having a body of GOOD, helpful content so people can really see I know my stuff and not just full of hot air. Thanks for ANY input! :)

Google+ Local (GMB)  - 
 
I have an SEO agency and speak (in my local area) a good bit and meet with potential clients pretty regularly and I swear the MOST misunderstood, greatest disconnect I run into is understanding Google+, Google Local, Google My Business, Google Places, Google Maps. It seems like SUCH a moving target! I don't think I have talked with a single business owner that has the foggiest idea if they have claimed their profile or who did it or when (or how to log into it) I admit with SEO being such a dynamic, evolving industry I have a hard time keeping up myself. I love how Google makes things SIMPLE and easy (usually) but it seems like this one area changes on a pretty regular basis. Can anybody else relate to this? Any advice on helping clients understand Google +, etc or do you not bother and do it for them? Any advice for ME on how to best manage it for them!? :) Thanks for ANY input and I hope everybody had a peaceful, relaxing Christmas holiday!

Take care,

Matthew

As an authority, you may want to mention you could go into it - but would rather focus on the business issues they are having and the best way to address those things. If they press for explanations, I would ask how they feel it might be impacting their leadgen, branding & ROI - could be that they are just spooked by some seo fud marketing. G+ is just another tool in the bag (or evil trick, depending on who you ask). Your client /CEO only needs to understand the resulting value of what you do with it. The people that don't have the funds to invest in you are the only ones that need to learn all of the nonsense of G+L/MB in order to DIY... Along with being their own plumber, locksmith, dentist, etc. Frankly, for those people, there's YouTube. So personally, I think it's probably a waste of your time unless it can spark a more valuable conversation.

59 pages on my site have a low text-html ratio. Is this something I should worry about? Thanks!! :)

I hate to ask a question that will seem downright simple to many of you but I am stuck. When I use SemRush or Moz to crawl my site it shows a LONG list of thin pages (these are mostly pages that are meant to display work we did - like page of our portfolio showing off sites we built) Should I set it so Google can't crawl pages like this on my sites? Is that something I can easily do in Wordpress? When I use SemRush to see what I am ranking for it looks like I am trying to rank for my client business name in some instances. Thanks for any suggestions!

You may consider adding content to the page i.e. a brief description of the work you did; project goals, challenges, benefits, people involved etc. That way you are covering both bases - highlighting the work you did with an image and addressing the thin content issue by adding context.

I am a huge fan of Brian Deans course and he is brilliant with some of what he has figured out. My dilemma is I see the wisdom of his advice about targeting your content toward people of influence who can send traffic your way and possibly link back. Makes sense. But I see a huge disconnect between what my 'linkerati' (to steal a phrase) would see value in and what my prospective clients would see value in. I know it's true - 90% of the SEO blogs are creating content that is WAY over the average small business owners head. I've seen it 150 times I bet, from speaking engagements to clients meetings to workshops - I don't think I have talked to ONE person in the last two years that understood Title Tags or had any idea what it means to 'optimize' a webpage. On one hand I don't think any 'wheels' in the SEO world are going to link back to my Title Tag blog post but if that's what my clients would really see value in..... Any thoughts would be appreciated! Anything I can do to help anybody in here just ask. Happy to do so. I went ahead and attached a link to a SEO guide I constantly reference when explaining SEO to a new client just to give you an idea what (in my experience) has helped me.

Quick question pretty please. I am redoing my site and I have a number of OLDER, smaller blog posts I am not particularly proud of. Should I just delete them? My content has gotten MUCH better and many of them are so weak and thin they are embarrassing. http://new.sawwebmarketing.com/promote-blog-posts-like-pros/ - should I make them better or just lose them? (they aren't doing anything to drive traffic now but don't want to upset what rankings I have now. Thanks for any thoughts :)

Not bad. Nothing amazing. Good concept. Basically Chipotle except for pizza.

We heard great things about the food here. We didn't love it. My wife's burger was almost raw and cold. The bread on my Philly was HARD and meat wasn't tender. We will try it again (maybe) but we were pretty disappointed. Very understaffed so maybe it was just a bad night.

I've been here three times. Want to like it. Wish I did. Can't bring myself to like it. Inconsistent. Service is great just don't care for the pizza. Ziggys is hands down the BEST Pizza in Wichita.

It will be sad when Towne West finally goes out of business. I wonder if Towne East will continue to thrive. Not a fan of giant malls.
