thank-you-for all-the-positive-comments-and-feedback


I want to thank everyone who reads this website for all the positive comments (1847+ recently) you send to me.
Of course this gives me motivation to keep going when I receive nice comments like this:

"Wow!  At last I have a blog from where I can genuinely obtain useful data helping my studies and knowledge."

"Amazing!  It's a truly remarkable post; I have a much clearer idea concerning this complex topic (Search Engine Optimization) from this excellent piece of writing."


This is a very creative, clever and outstanding TV commercial for BMW.
I noticed the version I show below is different and I think better than the current version I see on TV.  I think BMW must have decided to make this I3 commercial more conservative for future use.

The Search Engine Optimization (SEO) process is an ongoing continuing process that we perform every day for our clients. It is possible to become very successful with top natural/organic SEO rankings, as most (68% to 90%) searchers skip the paid ads. This large range is highly keyword dependent, e.g. if someone is searching for "buy refrigerator" vs. "what is George Washington's birthday". People searching to buy a new refrigerator have a higher probability of clicking on a paid Google Ad, then someone searching for George Washington's birthday.
The other major benefit of natural or organic #1 rankings is you do not have to pay per click.  Google Adwords can run as high as $182+ per click for highly competitive keyword phrases.
It is very important to stay with SEO methodologies long term in order to achieve the desired results.  If you stop this process your web traffic and rankings will drop, and it may be difficult to recover previous top rankings.
You can not turn natural SEO on and off like you can for Google Adwords.
Also website owners that jump around from SEO Company to SEO Company are in danger of being penalized by Google.
Google is very complex and secret so no one can claim to be 100% accurate as to why Google makes the decisions it does.  However we do know that Google has many different types of penalties some of which are manual and some of which are automated via advanced software algorithms.
The quality of your backlinks and the longer your backlinks are aged, make up major factors in the Google software ranking algorithms.  Please remember if you lose important authoritative backlinks, then you must start the aging process over from the starting line.  Besides losing PageRank, this also brings suspicion from Google, and you do not want that to happen.  Google detects all these changes looking for unnatural suspicious activities.

Update on Google Project Loon.
This is an excellent video by Emily Chang on the Google Loon Project.

So in the near future the Internet with good bandwidth will be available to the most remote parts of the world.  Perhaps this means it will soon be impossible to be "off the grid" or at least when you decide to go off the grid, you will still be able to watch NetFlix and Amazon Prime, etc. :)

President Obama's Speech on Cyber Security at Stanford University 


How Internet Advertisers Read Your Mind

This is a very interesting video that brings up many questions about privacy and if new laws are needed in order to regulate this entire industry.  Also how can any one country regulate and control this when Internet workers, and huge marketing databases can be located anywhere in the world?

Link Building Techniques and Strategies
We receive thousands of phone calls and emails every year, about SEO and link building techniques. Eighty percent or more of the people contacting us have terribly wrong ideas about what works and what is important for outstanding results in the major search engines. Below are details, samples, and history of people contacting us with their requirements. Hopefully, you will find useful SEO information that will help your company grow and increase your profits.

Many people phone our company saying, "I need low cost SEO, low quality backlinks, and tons of cheap links."

I respond, "Why?".... They say, "I want to out rank my competitors."
They think it is a pure numbers game, all links are equal and you get more and you win.  This is the wrong link building strategy, and these "cheap low quality techniques" may cause your website to be penalized by Google.

These people want fast outstanding results; they want to be #1 for competitive keyword phrases in 1-5 months.  Most people still do not understand that Google has penalized almost all of these cheap, crappy links and many people still do not even realize to vary their anchor text.  So the fastest way to be penalized by Google is to put up 1000+ low quality links on crappy websites and low quality Directories all using the exact same anchor text, these people might as well just email Google and say "please penalize my site, I am a dumb-ass and deserve to be penalized."
You need and want to be on top quality sites and Directories.

This video is very funny and makes an important point.

Based on all the recent problems Sony has faced with hackers and the fact that Sony did not do a good job of protecting passwords.  Furthermore with the general public concerned about the US government spying on citizens I thought it would be important to explain why everyone should be using on Online Password Manager for business, personal, SEO and marketing.

There are several good products on the market:

     - free license information and plugin for Google Chrome

2.  Lastpass

3.  1Password
