Let’s agree on the fact that SEO is a vast digital landscape that is forever evolving. Search engine optimization is the key factor that can improve your site’s visibility and ranking on search engines. So getting a grasp on what SEO techniques work and what tactics are no longer effective is essential for the growth and success of your online business.
Moreover, SEO itself consists of many on-page as well as off-page ranking factors (200 to be exact), and keeping a tab on all these strategies can be an overwhelming task. Additionally, you might find SEO guides that claim to be the “Ultimate,’’ and while some of the techniques employed may work, overall such methods are hardly ever useful.
Thus, if you have searched the Internet trying to find out the best SEO techniques to implement on your site and have not found one that best suits your business, no worries, because here is a genuine, up-to-date Ultimate SEO Checklist that can be used for all online businesses. Continue reading
I have been doing online reputation management (ORM) for clients since 2003. There’s one thing that everyone who comes to my door has in common, whether it was for NMS, Abraham Harrison, Reputation, Gerris, or now for Status Labs: too little content online! Generally-speaking, the richer the mogul, the more élite the individual, the more likely they’ve tried to keep off Google’s radar, keep out of the index. Moreover, moguls, oligarchs, and high-net-worth individuals tend to be both too busy and private to invest the time and energy registering, building out, and keeping fed a small army of social media profiles, including more than just LinkedIn.
Back in 2006 when I started doing online public relations, blogger outreach was a minefield. Everyone was an INBOX-monitor and each pitch was a tentative toe into boggy turf. Landmine? Solid ground?
After I wrote The More the Messier for Content Marketing SEO Success I received an email thanking me for the post, but also noting something else. While learning how to write content to best support your marketing goals, the golden ticket is what to write, week-after-week, that will drive people organically, over time, more and more, to your website.
Book review: A clear-eyed look at the mind-blowing changes in spatial computing dead ahead
Title: “The Fourth Transformation: How Augmented Reality and Artificial Intelligence Change Everything”
Authors: Robert Scoble & Shel Israel
My rating: ☆☆☆☆☆
Release date: December 7, 2016 on Amazon
At the Launch Scale conference in San Francisco on Nov. 14, technologist-futurist Robert Scoble held forth for 20 minutes wearing a mixed reality headset, allowing him to interact with the attendees (startup founders, angels and techies) while projecting a presentation behind him. “Within two years,” he said at one point, “everybody in this room will be wearing a glass. And you might say ‘I’m never going to do that,’ but I’m telling you right now, you will.”
A few minutes later he insisted: “You all are going to have this in 12 months or less.”
It was classic Scoble: forward-looking, brash, boundlessly optimistic, a bit aggressive on the time line, and passionate about plunging headlong into a blossoming new era — the age of spatial computing — which he and co-author Shel Israel lay out so vividly in their new book, “The Fourth Transformation: How Augmented Reality and Artificial Intelligence Change Everything,” which goes on sale on Amazon in the next week.

You need to spend only 20% of the time you do on your content marketing and marketing SEO than you’re doing — at least for now. Be quick, be messy, be pedestrian, maybe even turn off your Grammatik and your Autocorrect. Churn out five-times the amount of content you’ve been writing then hit publish and walk away for a couple days. Then, feel free to get all anal retentive on your content — but only with the stuff you plan to add to your portfolio. Leave everything else as close to as-is as possible. Please.
