Who’s Worth More Than McDonald’s, Disney and GM Combined

This company in less than a decade, from when it was formed, had traded at a value of one hundred and eighty one billion dollars. Since their inception they’ve certainly changed the world, but the co-founder seems to hold a humble view of his own accomplishments. In view of his past success he states that his focus is on what he can do better. read Who’s Worth More Than McDonald’s Disney and GM Combined

When Adding A Link To Another Internet Neighborhood

When adding someones website in connection to your content you must make sure that the link opens in a new window. If you don’t your visitor will be off to a different Internet neighborhood and may never return to your page.

In recent months I read an article from an SEO Pro who was stressing the importance of occasionally including an anchor text link to a high page rank site in the first two paragraphs of an article. If we are going to do this type of thing to achieve higher placements with the search engines, then we are going to have to make certain that we don’t send them away forever. What good would it do to get a high ranking spot on Google just to have our potential customer click off within the first few seconds of landing on the page?

Something that I generally practice doing is after I write an article I always check the connections to other sites to ensure that I remembered to set the new page to open in a different window. If you are anything like me, I get so caught up in designing the pages that sometimes I forget when adding a link to another neighborhood website to make it open in a different browser window.

Will the Real Homestead SEO Pro Please Stand Up?

Homestead seo pro blog postA person who is educated in getting top placements on Google with an Intuit/Homestead website can be considered an SEO Pro. I say this because the SiteBuilder program is not user-friendly when it comes to achieving high placements within the search engines.

Learning professional techniques to implement can make an amazing difference in how your Sitebuilder pages get ranked with the search engines. These strategies are not available just anywhere though. Information like this is valuable and therefore it generally takes an investment of money to learn about how to get top placements within Google, Yahoo and Bing.

There are more than seven things that must be done correctly inside the internal structure of your Sitebuilder website.  If they are not done, the search engines (SE) will not like your pages.

Recently I watched an excellent video about what can be accomplished within a month of starting a new blog when hard work and a business mindset unite. We can learn very important guidelines for starting a successful blog from this video review about the  Planting Dollars site.  It was developed by Lisa on her “2 Create A Website” blog.

The inspiration for the title of THIS post, (“Stop Whining; Start Working on Your Website!”) was realized about twelve minutes into the video. As I listened to Lisa talking about how success is the direct result of working a plan, I recalled when the light was turned on for me. read Stop Whining; Start Working on Your Website
