Content Tag

Over the course of this year I have noticed a trend, people are starting to use content from other sites to write their own.  When I ask about the content's source, the answer is always the same "There is so much out there, why re-invent the wheel?"  That is a fair thought track, however there's a big problem

If you are concerned at all about writing content for your blog or web site, know this: quality and quantity matter equally.The more often you write the better off you are and the quality matters too. Don't write an article simply so you have something new on your site, write something that matters and is worth reading. Think of your audience, would they want to spend time reading the information? The other thing to remember is, your ultimate goal is to communicate with your customers not simply to gain a higher ranking on Google. You are much better off writing a 1 paragraph article once a day than a 2 page article once a month.Keep your content relatively consistent, especially if its in a blog format. Don't jump around too much, if your content scope is too wide and varied

A question I get asked a lot is 'How do I get listed in Google so everyone sees me?'.  The answer is the same for everyone, I tell everyone the same thing.  Its a simple concept, but its not easy to implement.  There are two components, your site and all the other sites that link to you. The Code: The site's coding, using proper heading tags, ALT tags on the images Eternal Existence: A longer domain renewal length, its cheaper to buy 1 year at a time, but a longer domain renewal shows a more stable and established site. Need for Speed: High bandwidth server connection at a larger server 'farm', you want your site on a high-speed connection at a recognized server farm.  Google sees this and it shows your site is technically stable. Keyword Density:  This is probably the one you are the most familiar

I'm constantly telling people that they need to keep up on their blogs, and keep their web sites up to date with fresh and new content.  Well, I've been so wrapped up in my customer projects I have neglected my own web site. Many people have reminded me recently that I need to update, and of course all the e-mail asking for an update on the blog.  Well here it is! The title of this post is Focus.  The focus of your web site should be the content, all too often people spend extraordinary amounts of time refining every little graphic detail, selecting the best fonts and then when it comes to content they write whatever they need to shut me up and get their site done.  Folks, thats not the way it works.  Content is king!  The focus of your web
