Kim Krause Berg Predicts 2014 The Year of Buzz (Lightyear)

It seems like yesterday when my idea of fun was making client websites move up and down Alta Vista search results after a  code change and page refresh. December is known for many things, like holidays, days off, fourth quarter taxes and snow.  For we web folks, it’s also a time to analyze and review the consistent and twisted Google roller coaster algorithms and every word Matt Cutts delivered to… [Read More…]

Serving Up Canned Blog SPAM

Working on the blog for only a little while, I’m still surprised at times that there are close to 500 pieces of SPAM to delete on any given morning.  I know I shouldn’t be.  But I can’t help but wonder why such a wasteful, useless, destructive process still continues.  Then the logical half reminds me that, oh yeah, it’s cheap, easy and extremely difficult to hold people accountable. Blog Comments… [Read More…]

The Simple Guide to Finding Free Images for Your Blog Posts

Last week, I lamented the fact that I’d been beaten to the punch in posting about finding images for blog posts. I sent our bloggers a link to the Smackdown post, but I think that post does a little too much “throat clearing” before it gets to the good stuff. (I say this because I’ve still had a lot of questions about image rights, and I’ve had to remove some… [Read More…]

A Rant On Grammar, Spelling and SEO

Every so often on Twitter (and in life) I find myself in a debate with familiar faces who like to argue with me that grammar and spelling and punctuation are highly-overrated.  They think that they can write how they write and that it is your job to decipher where a new sentence starts, what word they meant to type, and what parts of a phrase they inexplicably left out. I… [Read More…]

Forget Everything You Ever Learned in High School

I stumbled across an interesting read while going through my feed reader this afternoon. Over at Copyblogger, Jim Lodico says Everything I Need To Know About Blogging I Learned In High School. Funny, because I think for me it was the complete opposite. I’ve come to find that in order to be a (mildly) successful blogger I’ve needed to forget all those “really important lessons” that were drilled into me… [Read More…]

InLinks Launches. Here We Go Again.

Yesterday the blogosphere began buzzing with the news that Text Link Ads had launched a new product called InLinks. It’s the latest in “undetectable, non-fingerprint-able” link buying networks and so far it’s been mentioned on TechCrunch, SEOmoz, SEOBook, Shoemoney, Search Engine Roundtable and at Michael Gray’s house of mayhem. Which means Google totally hasn’t heard about it and isn’t watching it like a hawk. There definitely aren’t flocks of Spam… [Read More…]
