Before I got to #1
Today I ran a search in Google for "what time zone is ohio" It answered my question…but it gave me a few new questions. Before I got to the #1 Result, I see 2 areas Google’s put on top. 1. how did this page:http://academickids.com/encyclopedia/o/oh/ohio.htmlget above the "Book results"? (and hey…another www.wikipedia.org type site!) I see in the […]
Pass that joint over here!
I just got an email lead for services. I’m not sure what this guy is smoking, but I’d appreciate if he’d pass some over here. Here’s some of his email: "….What we would like to do of course is achieve number one positions on all search engines for those words which are: Horse, Horses, Sports, Software, […]
New Age of Website SEO Tools
2 new SEO Tools by We Build Pages – Age and Links Analysis Tools Every day I get calls with people saying "I want to be #1 for "Green Widgets""My first question to them is "How old is your site?"Followed by my quickly running Yahoo’s linkdomain searches for the top sites to get an idea […]
I like ’em old.
When Leads come in, I review them, and either trash them, send them to Todd, or handle myself. Often when I send them to todd, I attach a small note like: "Since 1999 (potential)" or "since 2003 – maybe"….today I sent one to Todd which said "since 1997" Note, that these little notes don’t say […]

Scraping Whole Pages is not Cool.
I shouldn’t be one to throw stones in glass houses.I guilty of experimenting with lots of methods of trying to get traffic to websites – some methods have been blacker than others, so I’m in no way saying I’m "Mr. Clean". I am however going to toss a small stone to those who steal content (like […]
Forward Link Look Tool – V1
In wanting to analyze "Links Out" a bit more (to better view the neighborhood) I had a programmer working on a tool to peek at title tags of pages being linked to. I just got back a version of that tool ..it’s not quite was I was seeking – so it looks like there’ll be another tool after […]
When Getting Links is not the solution.
With almost all prospective clients I speak with I end up telling them "You Need More Links" …. I can show them all sorts of fancy reports, and fancy tools, and we can do all sorts of fancy analysis….but the results are almost always "You Need More and Better Backlinks if you want to rank […]
Google Forward Link Command
I just found an old Google Friends Newsletter from May 1998 where it mentions: To get the forward links of a page use "flink: < url >". Wonder what happened to that command? We built our own tool to check forward links, if you haven’t seen it, check out our forward link tool.
Everyone should have a blog.
I wonder when everyone will have a blog or at least a website. Natural disasters like 911 or Hurricane Katrina which leave so many people missing, and spur new websites for lost people like Katrinalost.org and Katrinaslost.com (forum) and www.KatrinaSOS.org (hum…wonder how these sites excaped the sandbox)..anyways…wouldn’t it just be easier if everyone had their […]
