SEO Sites

Aside for Social Media Optimization (SMO), one other subject I am also passionate about is SEO – Search Engine Optimization.  With the constant change in the way consumers are talking and doing business, there’s no doubt that if you want to keep up, you also need to be where your customers are most likely to hang out, and that is…..on the web.  That being said, it just makes perfect sense that if you want to be found by your customers, one key important element your website has to be is, search engine optimized.  More on that subject later.

But for now, if you’re looking for resources in SEO, check out some of the sites listed below.

In no particular order, here they are…

  1. Search Engine Land
  2. Outspoken Media
  3. Web SEO Analytics
  4. Copy Blogger
  5. Google Blog
  6. SEOmoz
  7. High Rankings
  8. Wolf-Howl
  9. Cre8PC
As you can see, this is not an extensive list.  Please feel free to add some of your favorite SEO sites with your comments.  I would love to hear from you….
Thanks for stopping by!

Just Google It!

How often do you hear someone say or you’ve found yourself say, “just google it”!?  If you’re like me, the answer would be umpteenth times!

But that’s the truth!

If you want to learn something you can find it on the internet.  It’s right there, right at your fingertips!  You just have to know what to type in your google search box.  Thus the verb, “google it”, as in….”research it on the internet!”

Over the weekend, our garage door opener broke and rather than hiring someone to get it fixed, my husband learned about it from YouTube.  There were several videos available with  step by step instructions on how to get it fixed.  But this video,  Garage Door Spring Repair, was the one he found to be most helpful.  So with an $80 purchase from Menard’s plus an hour of his time, the garage door is fixed!  I realize that hiring someone to fix it would have probably cost less, but, he learned something new.  And knowledge is sexy!  ;)

Speaking of which, I also want to learn something new….and that is, how to create a website through WordPress.  I have dabbled on web creation in the past.  But something just out of the box with very minimal tweaking like from iWeb.  Take a look at this Wonderful Lashes website I created myself.  It was very easy to do.  So if you have a Mac, this is something you can easily create.

So going back to WordPress.  WordPress is great because they have several themes and lots of beautiful designs to choose from.  Two of the themes I’m currently looking into are Thesis and Genesis.  Doing some research right now so I can write about my journey and will keep you posted.

And like I said, you can pretty much learn how to do everything….just google it!

So how about you?  Do you google?  When was the last time you googled?  And what did you google?  I want to hear your experience with google!  Do tell…

TTFN!
