Need For Speed MMXIV: Web Design and ‘Prebrowsing’

We’ve all learned by now that websites need to be fast. The time-to-first-response from a serve is measured by Google, and slow-responding sites get penalized. Mobile browsers whose patience is measured in single-digit amounts of seconds are quite likely to end up on your desktop-oriented website if you’re not careful, and those don’t like to [...]

Unorthodox Link Building

Link building — for a while there, when Google announced that guest blog posting was ‘spammy’, we all kind of thought it might be dying out. But as it turns out, link building is still an absolutely vital part of SEO — it just looks a little different now than it used to. More importantly, [...]

Are You Treating Social Media With Maturity?

Social media has been around for long enough that we’re starting to see the difference between a company that approaches it with a fairly off-the-cuff set of concepts and policies, and one that comes at it with a mature and comprehensive approach.

You Say You Want Some Evolution? Well, You Know…SEO Is A-Changin’

If you’re into digital marketing, you can basically count on the idea that some aspect of what you’re doing is going to be phased out in the next year. Just like those bell-bottoms that were out, than in, then out again, SEO trends come and go like the flickering of a candle in a windstorm. [...]

One SEO Guy in Favor of Net Neutrality

I don’t like to get political online; it’s not really something that I’m comfortable with. But I saw what happened on the FCC website today, and I had to say something. After a comment period that had to be extended because of the sheer volume of public outcry against the proposed plan, the FCC enacted [...]

Design Is Solving Problems, Not Adding Sparkles

In all of my scanning Al Gore’s tubes for useful information about what I do on a daily basis, every once in a while I come across something that shocks me. No, not like politicians shock me or like XKCD shocks me, but that shock me in that it makes me seriously wonder what other [...]

Contrarianism In SEO

So I wrote a blog post about SEO and bad writing a few days ago, and I was re-reading it this morning when I noticed a pattern. And it immediately occurred to me that this pattern isn’t new — it’s a known, well-defined phenomenon. Someone comes up with a clever way of gaining an SEO [...]

Calm Down, SEO People

So I was listening to the radio, and on comes this odd song by Busta Rhymes and Eminem called “Calm Down.” I can’t claim to remember much of it — it was long, and Busta was doing his Busta thing with the rapping so fast you can only pick out every second or third phrase [...]

SEO Through Bad Writing: Just Stop.

OK, we get it. Getting your site ranked is really important to your business, and you’ll do almost anything to make it happen. The problem is that you’re not an optimizer — you’re a business owner, and you don’t know the SEO world like an optimizer does. Your information is probably at least a couple [...]
