Technical SEO: Digital Ocean vs Google Cloud vs AWS

This may seem off topic but its on topic, technical SEO is imperative … you’re not going to rank number one on Google using Shopify or Wix.  It just isnt going to happen. Its also apparently difficult to get solid advice on SEO Hosting from “experts” Best Blog Hosting for SEO is junk … reciting features doesnt make a hosting plan the best…one quote notes that WordPress is already installed with InMotionHosting.com … so what!  Our web servers are preconfigured to install WordPress in every new account as well…it only saves maybe 5 minutes per user but for

How To Rank Your Site On Google…Forget the Keywords

How To Rank Your Site On Google...Forget the Keywords Well don't totally forget the keywords but I think if you spend more than 5 minutes on keywords you're going to be pretty surprised by some purported data I stumbled across.  As you likely know Google uses about 200 factors in determining your sites ranking.  I personally have place a lot of emphasis on speed and backlinks and while I have thought it was important I must admit I didn't give the social media factor as much attention as I should. The first big thing to not is that 10.3% of

Web Site SEO Visualizations

Web Site SEO Visualizations I'm a visual person as I believe most of us are which is why I am fascinated by these images of sites that I have visualized.  Green dots are working pages, blue dots are redirects and orange dots are pages that don't exist or are forbidden.  The connecting lines represent link structure of a site.  The larger a dot the more traffic it receives.

Should You Go After That Keyword

Determining When You Have A Chance At A Keyword So as I was reading for fun I stunbled across an often cited and well referenced Neil Patel article.  So this isn’t my work but I wanted to share the excerpt from his much bigger article on how long it takes to rank. 6. Decide which keywords you should win before building out content based on those keywords. Some content marketers set out to win ranking for a given keyword, without doing their due diligence on that keyword. This can be a mistake. Why? According to our data, websites that sought

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vsMydMDi3rI] Frank Abagnale depicted by Leonardo deCaprio in Catch Me If You Can speaks at Google about his life and cyber crime. We’ve all seen the movie or at least we all should have the teen who runs away and becomes everything from an airline pilot to an ER doctor to an Asst. District Attorney all before he turns 21. He’s a cyber crime expert these days and his experience in forgery and documents is fascinatingly from the other side of most experts. Like this: Like Loading...

SEO Tools: Visualize Pages And Their Interrelational Linkage

Anyone who knows me knows I love visualizations. I’ve been working on SEO strategies for a site and the beginning of any good strategy is understand the site and quality of its content. Some studies suggest 60% of people think in pictures…that is to say if I said the word “cat” some people will see a cat and some will see the letters cat. Its hard for visual people to grasp complex concepts such as “millions” its harder to produce that word in a visual way in your mind. Similarly when we think about a web site its often hard

I Have To Share The SEO Love In Oahu

I am happy to be working with a repected tour site a site that blends history, patriotism and tours in Hawaii’s Pearl Harbor. Principally I am concerned with increasing the ever important backlinks to propel the site to the top of Google page rankings. Backlinks are where unrelated sites link to another, giving it relevancy in Google’s eyes. They are like votes of confidence. Keywords have lost their stature in SEO because too often sites capitalized on the over use of a keyword mkaing the content poor for users and only good for search results. Miserable Failure Remember when

Data Studio Demo Report

I’ve shared a Google Data Studio Report about Louisville crime over the last 10 years that I made in an effort to demonstrate some of my reporting and data experience. The target audience for this is Upwork contracts that I am seeking to pick up. Its a cool tool though that I’ve used to make a lot of helpful reports. Its populated real time from an SQL server I have running on Google Cloud Platform. I’m more proud of the Louisville Voter Data Report but I think it would be a mistake to share that out there with everyone. Heres
