Good tips for AdWords conversion tracking.
Last month, I covered how to use call tracking for AdWords to shed some light on how to track phone calls as conversions. This month, I’d like to continue in that vein and share some more tips for tracking and optimizing by conversions, whether they are of the call or online variety. When I first […]

Matt Cutts: "I wouldn't expect a link from a widget to necessarily carry the same weight as an editorial link freely given..."

Matt also gives clues about the scale of your widget and infographic link building. He seems to imply that nofollow is much more important on large scale link building.

Why Visual Assets > Infographics

In this week's Whiteboard Friday, I rant a bit about infographics, and how other kinds of visual assets may be better for content marketing & SEO: http://moz.com/blog/why-visual-assets-are-better-than-infographics-whiteboard-friday

Still think Google+ doesn't matter?

My 17 top Google+ posts earned 1813 clicks in Google's organic search results over 3 months.

Imagine if I was a big brand. Imagine if I posted more than once a day. How many visits could I drive? How many people would view my  identity?

The amazing thing is this was organic search traffic - people looking for something specific and Google sent them my way!

Want to see how many organic visits your Google+ posts have attracted? Use the authorship stats in Google Webmaster Tools and filter for Google+. Big thanks to +Dan Petrovic for the tip.

Over the last few years I've had a great experience working with April on a variety of web projects. What differentiates April from other web designers is that she isn't *just* a great visual designer, she also understands that websites need to do more than just look good. I've seen how she works with clients to helps them understand how best to use the web to support their business and achieve their on-line goals. They may have come to her because they think they just want a website (or a better website), which April delivers, but she also gives them the things they don't know they need and quickly becomes someone they can trust to support their on-line endeavours. I look forward to working with April in the future.
