Why Liveblogging is Not Useless or Evil

In case you missed it, there’s quite a brou-ha-ha on Sphinn concerning John Coronella’s condemnation of liveblogging. The post has been Sphunn and Desphunn. The comments are where the real meat of the conversation is. And far be it for me not to add my two cents to the conversation. Liveblogging helps people like me, who can’t attend conferences because 1) other work and family obligations, 2) company has already… [Read More…]

Paid Link Redux with Guy Kawasaki and Michael Gray?

Remember back in September when Michael Gray called Guy Kawasaki out about a blog review as an example of paid links that Google was willing to overlook? Taking the cue from Google that they don’t care, Graywolf is helping get the word out about free copies of Guy’s new book Reality Check in exchange for blog reviews. I find this interesting.

10 Reasons Why Your Website Looks Like Spam

I’m sure you know exactly what the Google Webmaster Guidelines say about spam.  If you’re just playing at this SEO thing, here’s the quick version: don’t trick the search engines with hidden text, hidden links, keyword stuffing, duplicate content, or doorway pages.

But how can you… [Read More…]

(QualityGal) Graywolf, Guy Kawasaki, and Paid Links Rules that Can’t Be Enforced

As I was leaving a comment on Graywolf’s post about Guy Kawasaki and Link Payola, I realized I had more than a few words to say on the matter. Google’s policy on paid links is impossible to enforce. Or at least it’s impossible to enforce fairly and consistently. If I review an amazing product that was given to me for the purpose of reviewing it, does it make my review… [Read More…]

(QualityGal) We Build Pages opens Content Creation Services to clients again

For several months, our Content Creation Services have been closed to clients.  When my predecessor left the company to move across the country, the "Sorry…" notice appeared to let clients know that the service was no longer available.  When I started, it was up in the air as to whether or not we would offer Content Creation to clients again. But now, We Build Pages has once again opened its… [Read More…]

(QualityGal) Dear SEO Spammers, Please Do Your Homework

Dear SEO Spammers, If you are going to send out emails for your SEO services to get websites to rank on Google and Yahoo, don’t pick a website that is noindexed. (How did you even find it? Oh wait, that’s right. Google indexed it anyways.) Assuming I did want this site (not the site I use for my writers) to rank on the search engines, what do you think about… [Read More…]
