Am I Risking a Penalty if I Give this Hot Fudge Away?

Dang, it’s after midnight and I’m still at the office again. There’s been 2 cases of Sundaes Best hot fudge sitting on top of my desk that I’m not sure if I should be selfish and give the fudge to the employees (Oh man, I can hear Lisa and Christine and QualityGal saying "Me!", "Me!", "Me!") or if I should try to use this hot fudge for the benefit of… [Read More…]

(QualityGal) The Differences Between Good Writers and Great Writers

I have a lot of good writers on my writing team.  I won’t accept average writers, and bad writers make me cringe.  I do have a few really great writers, and I love them all to death.  My goal is to have a whole team full of great writers – either by recruiting those who are already great or molding my good writers into great ones. But how can you… [Read More…]

(NinjaJen) For Google 10th, it’s Tales from Page 10

In honor of Google’s 10th Anniversary Celebration and inspired by the "Google is turning 10. See what’s happened in the past 10 years."

GoogleInterestingly enough when you… [Read More…]

It’s a debate that I’m personally happy to stay out of….though I know how Yahoo would try to treat this…..hey, the world will never be perfect…ya can’t always get what ya want…but if you… [Read More…]

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

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…]
