Social Signals : Integrating Google+ and Your website

Posted in: Search Engine Optimization - SEO, Social Signals, Uncategorized by Kalman Groner on | No Comments

Google is now heavily relying on social signals to rank websites in its search results, its proving to be a pretty solid method.
So now

  • What are the “Social Signals” that the big G is looking for?
  • How can we position our websites properly to effectively trigger the social signals that Google is listening out for.

Over the next few weeks I will be updating this post with some tests that we have done to see what really works and what doesn’t. I will also be writing about some best-practices that I have picked up from following and researching what others are doing successfully.

This is going to be fun and very educational, and above all, a traffic generating, search engine ranking and therefore a sale generating project.

Feel free to post questions or comments I will try to respond to each post quickly.

Let the party begin.

SEO for 2011 or SEO for 2010? [Ramble]

Posted in: Search Engine Optimization - SEO by Kalman Groner on January 2, 2011 | No Comments

I find it interesting how many SEO¬†companies¬†put out press¬†releases¬† and marketing pieces promoting themselves, on how for 2011, they are implementing and harnesing the latest trends in SEO. The “creative” ideas, and “New” strategies that they are talking about for 2011, are the things that the REAL seo companies have been doing in 2010.

While many people consider SEO to be complicated, SEO and Internet Marketing in general, is no different then traditional marketing yet it is very different.

It is not different then traditional marketing in that you are going to be most effective with proper market research, promotion, brand building and staying up to date. Rinse and repeat.

It is very different in that we have so many tools that are available to help us do just that, that are traditionally only available for uber-large sums of money, yet today they are available to all, for nothing or close to it.

Take Google Analytics for a moment. A FREE dashboard, for your online business, that puts you in the drivers seet with a full 360 degree view of your business. Yeah, You gotta know how to use it.  When you use it properly, you have waaaay more intelligence about your small business, then any traditional business could pay for.

Get your game on for 2011 and into the future. Learn to use the tools that help you grow your business.
