Simple SEO: explaining and understanding SEO in the simplest way possible

May 22, 2008

It’s been a while since I’ve had time to post here as I am extremely busy with RankSense. In selling an SEO software suite I answer a lot of technical questions, but, oddly enough, I feel I have become much better at explaining what SEO actually is. As SEO has become more mainstream, and more...

Writing for People (and Search Engines): How to improve click-through rates for organic listings

January 15, 2008

Another new year has come and many of us are still analyzing the balance of successes and failures of the previous one. It is definitely a useful chore.

Adolescent Search Engines: They are growing up so fast!

August 15, 2007

Search engines are just like teenagers. Don’t believe me? Consider this analogy. Let's say you have a teenage kid with a handful of friends. He knows them very well and even remembers their phone numbers by heart. He’s bright and it doesn’t take him long to become very popular at school. Now, he has dozens...

The Truth About Sitelinks: Site structure is splendid, it seems

August 09, 2007

There has been a heated debate on Sphinn about a controversial post by Rand Fishkin of Seomoz.
