Google seems to be adjusting the search results and they are becoming slightly worse.

The newest search results from Google are fantastic. If you want to see them in the USA make sure you are logged out of Google and set your location to USA.

I am not sure what is happening outside of the US, however Google has made some improvements in the algorithms it uses in the US to produce search quality results vastly superior to Bing's search results.

I do not pay any attention whatsoever to any of these code names (Panda, Hummingbird, etc.) people or Google come up with for updates to the Google ranking algorithms. Because if webmasters focus on building super high quality merit based backlinks Google will reward you more and more over time.

Please remember Google is an a quest like a Terminator to kill off Spam and to reward quality content. Some people that call themselves SEO experts, just keep coming up with new blackhat scams one after another. Then Google keeps finding these blackhat tricks and filters them out. The only games that may last as long as these search engine cat and mouse games, are the games Greece and Germany are playing in the Eurozone.

I consider this update by Google a "major one" based on the significant search result improvements, and by how long Google is taking to completely release it to all Google servers. I believe many search engine power users like me, will agree when they test out the latest Google search results.

Glassdoor Causes Huge Reputation Management and SEO Problems for CEO'S
Please click on the following link to see what I mean.
This can lead to reputation management problems on Google also.
Please see screen shot below.

My company has developed propriety methods to fix these serious reputation management problems.  Please contact me if you need help with these types of problems.
Glassdoor 1 and 2 star reviews are generally true and real.  Almost all the 5 star reviews are fake reviews of the employers HR department.  Glassdoor needs to do a much better job of filtering out these fake 5 star reviews from HR departments.

How to Hire a Commission Only Based Sales Force or a Salary Plus Commission Sales Team

Over the last twenty years I have hired many sales and marketing people.  From Vice Presidents of Sales and Marketing to tele-sales lead generators.  I have seen the best success from a combination of salary and commission, however I still dream of the day when I can find and work with top producing commission only sales representatives.

I have also found that it is even more difficult to hire good ethical sales people for the search engine optimization industry.  Many industries in the USA and in most countries of the world have successful well known "manufacturers' representatives" for example take the fastener industry and see the search results below:

If I manufactured fasteners I would be all set and could find plenty of outstanding sales people to help me grow my business.
This is clearly not the case the for SEO, software and website development sales people.  It is especially true for great SEO sales people.  You can not do a simple search and find any good ones and the few you do find are mostly scammers and crooks that will just rip you off.
Since these great sales people are so rare and difficult to find I started researching other articles, and the following are excerpts from other articles I suggest you read:

  1. Great salespeople are rare. Unfortunately this is all too true. Most salespeople underachieve; the majority just get by, and the shining stars are few and far between.
  2. If you own your company, you are without doubt its best salesperson. The bottom line is that your passion and belief in your product and service is second to none, so don’t expect anyone to sell as well as you do. Ask yourself why you are hiring a salesperson. Should you be considering hiring someone to help you with your other responsibilities so that they free you up to do the important job of selling?

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.
