How to create a great brand name

For new and existing businesses it is important to think about a "brand name". This video is a concise and useful presentation to think about when considering your companies brand name. 
In rare cases like Google it may not matter that much. Many experts would claim that the brand name Google was not such a wise choice, however if your company becomes the most financially successful company in the history of business like Google is, perhaps your brand name choice is not as important.
However for 99% of businesses the creation and marketing of your brand name is extremely important for long term success.

GuitarCenter - SemRush SEO Case Study


I talk and work with all different sized companies, from large well established Fortune 2000 companies to new small startups.
My company works on improving or creating their websites, SEO, custom software, and Conversion Optimization, etc.

In this case study we will look at the SEO results for a big and successful company GuitarCenter.com

I like many of the SEO Tools on the market, one of the best ones is SemRush.com, please see the SemRush screen shot for GuitarCenter.com organic SEO rankings below.


If you are trying to learn about SEO best practices this is a good example to study. If you are a smaller company, please do not worry you can have some good SEO results without having 20 million backlinks like GuitarCenter.com has. Unless you are competing against GuitarCenter.com then it can be quite difficult. This is also true for small businesses that try to compete against Amazon.com. 
Unfortunately for smaller businesses Amazon keeps expanding the types of products it sells and Amazon does put some smaller companies out of business. I advise smaller companies to find unique products and services that the big Internet giants are not currently selling, or offer special custom services that the big companies do not currently offer. It is not easy to do, yet it is possible and I see examples of this on the Internet.


Now let's look at more screenshots of GuitarCenter.com using the SEMrush SEO tools.

See a real Google "blacklist", Google claims under oath that they do not have any "blacklists"

In the video of the Google senior software engineer (please see the next article below), it shows a real Google "blacklist".

Google has stated under oath that these "blacklists" do not exist.

Please see the graphic below.
I am not an attorney, however I think that we need new laws and regulations to prevent Google from creating these evil blacklists.
Google needs to be regulated and punished for creating blacklists.

Is Google misleading and lying? Why is the FTC asleep at the wheel?

 Why is the Federal Trade Commission not investigating Google?

Since I am a first-hand witness and ongoing victim of Google's unfair censorship, I know that Google can be a very evil company.
I am surprised that the leadership (CEO) of  Google is not doing more to admit and stop the unfair bias and the evil, inappropriate censorship at Google. Instead Google is just trying to hide the truth. E.g. Why is Google unfairly censoring Project Veritas and their videos of Google employees telling the truth about what really happens inside Google?
Please forward this article and link to the Google employee's video exposing the facts about what Google is really doing. E.g. how Google is trying to control people's thoughts by inappropriately censoring content and unfairly manipulating Google search results. 

Is this the USA or North Korea?
FTC and Department of Justice, please wake up and protect the American people from evil Google. 
People talk about Russia trying to influence our elections, the real danger is coming from Google. We need to stop and expose the "blacklists" of people that Google is unfairly censoring.

Google will unfairly censor this article and many other articles that challenge Google's integrity. I have been following this Project Veritas Google investigation and all citizens of the USA need to know the facts.
So far two senior Google software engineers have made very disturbing videos about what is really going on inside of Google. 
Please watch the Google ex-software engineer's video below.

Why is the US Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission not making an investigation of Google?
Google is lying to Congress and the American people.

Brett Kavanaugh is a liar and he should NOT be on the USA Supreme Court, he should be charged with perjury, because he lied under oath

I wrote the article below on 10-4-18 and Google has unfairly censored my article.



I am generally not a fan of CNN and I do not always agree with Don Lemon. It is funny to me because Don Lemon claims he is an Independent and not a Democrat or Republican, which is a joke to me because I have watched him since he has been on CNN and I have never seen him support a Republican party position.
Don Lemon seems to always agree with the Democrats, plus he dislikes President Trump. We do not have many "real" Journalists any more, I am more of a journalist then most of the people on CNN. Then you have Fox news which is biased the other way and only supports Republican policies. It is very frustrating for people like me that truly are not affiliated with any political party.

List of Directory Submission Sites.
List of directories that Google likes and that follow Google Guidelines.

Google has cracked down on web directories that violate Google guidelines.  You should not place your website on any free and low quality directories or websites, you need fewer directory listings with better quality in order to be successful with Google and Bing. Please read the following new article about effective SEO Link Building to learn more.

So I decided I should give people a list of Internet directories that Google thinks are valid and that if you obtained a listing from these directories it would help you with direct traffic generation and also as a "good" backlink as far as Google is concerned. The Directories below are valuable worldwide and businesses from all countries should consider submitting their website to these top quality Directories.

Please see comments below from Matt Cutts of Google on what to consider when submitting to a Directory.
I see many articles that give incorrect SEO information and promote "free directory sites" (low quality), and it is important to study what Google has previously stated. Please understand that Google has penalized many sites for not following the Google guidelines.

When considering submitting to a directory, I’d ask questions like:
- Does the directory reject urls?
If every url passes a review, the directory gets closer to just a list of links or a free-for-all link site.
- What is the quality of urls in the directory?
Suppose a site rejects 25% of submissions, but the urls that are accepted/listed are still quite low-quality or spammy. That doesn’t speak well to the quality of the directory.
- If there is a fee, what’s the purpose of the fee?
For a high-quality directory, the fee is primarily for the time/effort for someone to do a genuine evaluation of a url.
