Social Media Accounts You Need for Today's SEO [INFOGRAPHIC]

Affordable Web Design Service Blog: Search engine optimization, web design, and webmaster tips

10 Social Sites for SEO - You Need for Ranking

… if you want any kind of respect from Google

Social Media Network memberships are NOW close to being a requirement for your SEO campaign to promote your business. With the Google Panda Update, one of the many factors that Google is looking for is social approval. Every business now needs to have SMO – social media optimization.

1) Let’s start with Facebook – Need I say any more…? OK, for those who don’t know, Facebook is a social media networking site intended to connect friends, family, and business associates. And if you have a business, you should also have a Facebook Fan Page.
2) Twitter – Twitter is an information network, a social networking, and a microblogging service that allows you answer the question, “What are you doing?” by sending short text messages 140 characters in length, called “Tweets”, to your friends or followers. With a WordPress website, your posts, new AND old can be set to post to your twitter pages.
3) LinkedIn – LinkedIn is the world’s largest professional network with over 120 million members and growing rapidly. LinkedIn connects you to your trusted contacts and helps you exchange knowledge, ideas, and opportunities with a broader network of professionals.
4) Google + – Launched on June 28, 2011, Google Plus is a social networking and identity service, operated by Google Inc. Google Plus is vastly becoming one of the most popular and best social networking websites on the Internet. And if you have a business, you should also have a Google+ Page for your business.

Beyond this, it's not quite as necessary, but if you have time, why not!

5) Foursquare – for marketers, Foursquare offers a unique and compelling opportunity to use geo-location based services to promote their brands in real-time. This is especially beneficial for brick and mortar stores.
6) StumbleUpon – StumbleUpon is a discovery engine that finds the best of the web, recommended just for you… it is an Internet community that will allow the user to stumble upon and rate Web pages… this include photos and videos.
7) YouTube – currently ranked 3rd on the Alexa Traffic Ranking, YouTube is a video sharing website where users can upload, view, and share video clips.
8) Flickr – best recognition from Google for images. You can also create slideshows for your website, including certain sets while excluding ones you don’t want to show.
9) Delicious – formerly ‘’, is a social bookmarking web service for storing, sharing, and discovering web bookmarks.
10) Yahoo Answers - a new way to find and share information. You can ask questions on any topic, get answers from real people, and share your insights, with over 90 million users worldwide.

My Quick SEO for SERP Formula

Do you need top search engine results?
Do you want first page Google?
Getting traffic to your website involves several marketing methods, of which
search engine traffic is foremost. It is not really difficult to get top SERP (search engine results pages) or even to achieve first page Google. You can avoid the high cost of SEO (search engine optimization) companies, and the risky bidding for prominent Adwords. All you need is written up here in this article.

My Quick SEO for SERP formula:

Use a 3-4 keyword phrase.
Use keyword phrases that search users would probably use. This is where an SEO expert may come in handy, but with a little imagination and research you should be able to master this.
Place your "keyphrases" in your title <title>, header <h1> to <h6>, and link <a href> tags.
Place in meta name description <meta name="Description" content="place in here - easy on all caps" />.
Use this keyphrase 2-3 times minimum in body content.
If your website is geographic specific, (even if it's not) be sure to include your city and state in your title and meta name description tags.

And there you have it! Use this formula, and you'll see your website on Google first page within a week or two.

SEO Fast Start

With all of the (so called) experts advising us on search engine optimization, it's difficult to sort fact from fiction, greed from truth.
And then, to understand it all, you need a master's degree in marketing. Prior to this publication, to get any worthy information, you would need to chance-purchase a variety of literature (likely from a mini site), sort through it all to find what might work, Google a few hieroglyphics phrases, and experiment with all the suggestions.

Dan Thies has been in the Search (and marketing) industry for over 6 years; he has earned a solid reputation for accurate information. He speaks at SES conferences, teaches SEO, mods for High Rankings, is a member of the SEOPros executive committee, and can write so that the layman can grasp a full understanding. Dan has also written the "Search Engine Marketing Kit" for SitePoint.

Anything this guy puts his name on is not just good… it's great!
What I’ve created here is more than just a book – it’s a framework for learning SEO. In fact, it’s a framework for understanding SEO, for managing SEO projects, for developing better methods, for teaching, for communicating with clients, and more. One important goal is to teach beginners a simple process that consistently delivers results. But this book isn’t just for beginners.

Even the most jaded veterans of the SEO wars can use this framework. If you don’t like what we’re doing at any particular step in the “fast start” process, just plug in your own process for that step.

The people who are exceptionally good at SEO also have a lot of knowledge about the technical side of search engines and web sites. I think I’ve proven over the years that I am one of those people… and I want to help you.

... when I start work on a new web site, I expect that we’ll be able to start seeing significant traffic from search engines within the first month or so, and that we’ll start seeing page one rankings for our key search terms within six months.

The Necessity Of Adequate Links For Web Site Promotion And Search Engine Optimization

Website promotion is necessary when establishing your e-business and learning how to make easy money online. Creating a website by itself isn't sufficient to carry a budding internet business. You have got to assume the ideal link building strategy to market your site in a search engine friendly fashion. Search engines believe link popularity to be a significant element in placing websites among the search engine result pages (SERPs.)

A site that has quality links is in all likelihood going to place among the first ten results of the SERPs. The determinging factors for link popularity for each engine differs from the others. You are able to determine the link popularity by typing “” into any of the search engine. The complete details of the sites linking to your website will be before you.

If you ever want to learn how to make fast money online you've got to be able to come up with an effective link building technique to enhance the link popularity of your website. You will have to integrate three types of links to attain this-- internal, external and reciprocal links.

Internal Links
The easiest imaginable approach to having an effective linking design for your site is to create a sitemap. A sitemap is the structure of the whole website that holds links to all of the pages on a website. The links are organized in accordance with the particular details of a subject. They are usually shown in a hierarchical way. The links must be anchor text containing the keywords associated with your site. This makes the search engine's job quite easy.

Quality internal links are required both from an SEO standpoint, and also as a resource for your visitors. A website is gauged based on whether or not it accurately and efficiently deeplinks all of its pages of information, and a sitemap assists visitors because it formats all the information on the site in a logical, easy-to-use structure.

External Links
Link building methods also stress the necessity of outbound links. These make your website user-friendly, and also say something to your credibility. An authority website knows that it is an authority, and for that reason is not preoccupied with irrelevant worries like "passing too much page rank." It also realizes that it cannot possibly give to its visitors all relevant information on a single website, and so it points them freely to other resources that can be of use. Be aware of the sites you link to, however, because linking to a ton of cheap, useless, low-credibility websites will reflect badly on your own site.

Of course, inbound links are the most relevant for any link building technique. If you want to achieve high rankings, you simply have to spend most of your energy getting one-way backlinks from other websites, pointing towards your own. This is most effectively done by writing good, informative content. Just about everyone in internet marketing agrees that the content of a website is the foremost factor in natural link building. This goes back to

Pageone Curator - STOP Building Backlinks!

STOP Building Backlinks - Use Pageone Curator!

Introducing The Hottest Whitehat Traffic Getting System

... and I can almost hear you saying, "What - stop building backlinks??"

Well, not to actually cease and desist, but there's something EASIER and BETTER now [add post Penguin]: content curation.


Content curation can be a powerful tool for gaining search engine ranking, as it can be used to vastly increase a company’s online presence and influence. One thing Google recognizes is the authority websites in the market that report on topics in specific niches. News sites do not always create their own news, they find other news and report on it... and reference the source.

Technically they are copying other people’s content and publishing it on their site - and Google is rewarding them for it - as long as they put a reference back to the source. Taking a step further, you can add your own editorial comment as an introduction to this content - and even summarize it. As long as you reference the source - then in Google’s eyes this is 100% approved. Add your own voice or tone - and then this becomes curation.

1) Search for fresh and exciting articles from Google blog search, news search, or Twittery
2) Curate interesting content
3) Integrate stunning images from Flickr or videos from YouTube
4) Post to your site
5) Reference to source
6) Add your comments and opinion

When you have found a good new source of content you can either use it immediately, or save it in your own collection.

Real content curation site is NOT about scraping RSS, or stealing other people’s articles. It’s about providing quality information to your niche audience. It’s a place where they will come to first for a roundup of the most relevant information in your area of expertise.

Whitehat and Google approved - this is the way forward for creating authority sites that make money.

Google Penguin Guaranteed Website Repair

Search engines continue to get more advanced, so we online marketers have to find out just what the search engines are looking for and keep those things in mind as we build our sites. This write up is to present you with the knowledge and methods Web Design by Steve uses to acheive good rankings for Google post Penguin update. Price options are listed at the end of this article.

On-site SEO

Things have changed – as we’re all so painfully aware. These days the search engine algorithms are more complex and a lot “smarter” than they used to be. The big search engines are wise to all the SEO tricks of a few years ago, so you have to take a different approach these days. In fact, if you try to resort to those old school methods and game the system, you can pretty much count on your website never making it to the top spots. You have to take a new approach, and that’s exactly what we will be doing to create Penguin proof backlinks for your website.

I think it’s important for you to have a solid grip on the different types of backlinks that you’ll be using for your sites, so let’s take a breather for a minute and talk about the diverse links that I used for this case study.

Off-site SEO

To achieve page 1 rankings now that Google has released the Penguin, you must have a really solid and diverse backlinking profile. When You have powerful backlinks coming from different diverse sources, along with strong social signals pointing to your website, we will be able to easily hit the top positions.

Post Penguin update, anchor text linking strategies have also changed. It is now recommended when linking other sites directly to your main site, to add extra keywords to the anchor text as well as social qualifiers such as “click here”, “check them out”, and additionally using the domain itself ( as a keyword.

You want plenty of backlinks for your site, but you want them to come from a variety of trusted, established sites on the Internet. With so many Web 2.0 websites offering webmasters the ability to obtain these links at no monetary cost, it’s finally possible to build a diverse, well rounded backlink profile for your website.

And so said, gone is the day that a simple link from a blog comment, a forum signature, or within an article that points DIRECTLY to your website, will establish ranking priority with Google. Post Penguin update, now your priority needs to be the anchored links that come from Google's prioritized website types - the social websites and the web 2.0 websites.

8 Algorithmic Changes Google Slipped Past You During April – WEBPRESENCE UK Blog

A couple of days ago Google released a list summarising 52 changes which they implemented during April which are now affecting search results. This has nothing whatsoever to do with penguins, pandas, or indeed any other monochromatic animal. These are just simply run-of-the-mill algorithmic changes which have been implemented without any formal announcement.

Repairing What the Google Penguin Algorithm Change Did to Your Website

The Google Penguin algorithm change may not have entirely destroyed SEO, but it certainly did alter it. Before Penguin you just backlink your five main keywords and let it battle every day until your website ranked. Now we have to perform much more observantly to keep link profiles looking natural to Google.

One of the situatons unavoidable from this is that there have been occurances of false positives. This is where a site looks to have been penalised, regardless of not using any of the methods featured by Google. To help remedy this, Google has a form that you can fill in to declare either your own site or another site which shows to have been wrongfully penalised as a result of the Penguin update.

To realize what the algorithm change was all about and what can be done, the following was discovered:

Google has started penalizing sites that are over optimized for their keywords. This includes both on-site as well as off-site search terms.

Since the Penguin algorithm was dispatched, we are noticing a vast amount of Web 2.0 sites climb to Google page one. But it's too early to assume whether this is a direction we can rely on or not in the future but as of now it is something we can benefit from, which means a nice increase of traffic for your websites while the Penguin gets allocated.

We know that Google gives rankings to sites that have web 2.0 backlinks in their link profiles. This incorporates sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Squidoo Lenses, and LinkedIn. So when you append these kinds of links to your backlinking curriculum, you'll obtain a nice social increase which will liken to increased Google rankings.

When linking straightforward to your main site you have to add a number of supplementary keywords to the anchor text as well as social qualifiers such as "click here", "check them out", and additionally using the domain itself ( as a keyword. Doing all this weakens the amount of link juice going out to your principal keywords, which slows the operation down quite a bit, but it doesn't totally quench the process.

SEO was never an automated process where you can input search phrases into a generator and have your site advanced to page one within a day or so. Now post penguin it just doesn't happen. So the first change necessary after the Penguin is to add the subjective keywords and social qualifiers to the anchor text.

But THERE IS a way to speed your Google Penguin repair without setting off the "Google alarm.

The second change, is to add layered web 2.0 links into the mix. What you need is to obtain 30 or so web 2.0 pages, and use one of your five primary keywords on each page, then begin linking the web 2.0 pages with a wide assortment of contrasting links to increase the link juice to flow from the web 2.0 page to your anchor texts.

This method will take some time; there is no way around it. But the good news is that this will work post Penguin; it just involves more time.

Also Penguin also has a lot to do with on page seo as well. Which is why you need to examine your site and fix things that will no longer work.

For on-site SEO: remove your keywords from your meta tags, site title, site description, H tags, alt text on your images, and minimizing your keyword usage to under one percent for any given page you are trying to obtain rankings. There is also a constituent that sites without copy on the upper fold have been hit hard as well, not to mention the detrement that you may possibly be using frames as well. I also recommend using WordPress, as there's a lot of plugins that will streamline many of your SEO functions. If this is a bit much for you, just contact Steve at

Please Help a Veteran So She Can Eat!

Maria Davis' Mother, Diane, (Maria is a friend of mine) is a U.S. Veteran and is in horrible pain. The VA won't help, can you?
By Maria Davis ...

Time is passing with very few donations so far! Please read on or watch the video to see why this is so imprtant. We have run out of options and this campaign is our last hope! You can make a difference!

Diane is a 59 year old Veteran who worked at the VA Medical center as a Respiratory Therapist for over 25 years. She served our country during the vietnam era and has saved many lives during her career. She is a warm and most loving person. She had an accident in 2001 which required her to take an early medical retirement. The VA does not offer free dental care for veterans, and outside dental insurance is too much money for her. Her retirement only brings in $958 per month. Out of that, her rent has to be paid, cost of living, and food for her to eat. After all is said and done, she has about $30 left over each month.

Something as simple as a piece of chicken gives her unbelievable pain.
Right now Diane has about 5 teeth in her mouth. These teeth are so ground down over the years from being used as her chewing teeth, that they are now starting to erode below the gum line. She can't even eat most of the foods out there. Some of her teeth have wore down so much that the gum has grown over and those teeth are now trapped below the surface. These ones cause her the most pain. Recently, she has had a little bleeding from the teeth below the gum line. This is NOT good and an infection could easily happen. You can actually see the difference in her face from the photo, versus the image on the video. The photo was taken about 2 years ago. The video was taken recently. She has been losing so much weight from not being able to eat!

For her to get dentures, it would require oral surgery to cut the gum and take out the teeth buried below the surface. Then extractions on her remaining teeth. The cost of the dentures are about $7,000 for the top and bottom, and the surgery is about $4,000.

What I am seeking is some help with getting it done for her. I am not asking for the full amount, but the cost of the dentures is the most pricey. If I am able to get at least $5,500, we will be able to put the rest on a payment plan. No dentist around will take payments from the start. Every one wants payment in full or half down. I have searched for other options through churches, grants, private doctors, and even possibly going to Mexico for it. Nothing will work and the dentists will not budge in their policies.
Almost everyone takes the simple act of chewing for granted.

How to Easily Find the Best SEO Keywords for Your New Website


When looking for good keywords, an SEO tutorial told me NOT to use Google's "About X-number results," noticing that the higher the number, the more difficult it will be to get top placements. And for the most part, that can be true. But there's two other displays I look at along with that number: 1) the amount of AdWord posts that are present, and 2) are there suggestions that drop down from the search box.

Take for instance, "long island karaoke rental." This has sidebar ads, but no top ads, this term also carries 3 search suggestions, and with only 1,280,000 results, this one should be easy to rank for, and the term appears to me as one that gets used frequently. "Appears to me" - this is powerful SEO knowledge to have .

Sidestepping here, I should explain that I am currently doing SEO for the Long Island DJs at I am also trying to boost a few keywords that would be beneficial to this website. And tomorrow, it will be a new one week update. Being that yesterday I finished the on-site SEO, I should have a bit more knowledge of which keywords we should use, as we may have an SERP increase (takes 1-3 days for Google to notice).

In the above screenprint, notice all the search suggestions (those can be used, too)!! Also notice, that this is a LOCAL search, which places businesses who are optimized for LOCAL search on top. Even with a low search volume of 1,980,000 results, this keyword will be a tough one to use, unless we also employ local internet marketing ... a whole different game.

In choosing keywords, I always use Google Adwords: Keyword Tools. This is where you'll find which keywords get more searches. Choosing the right words to input without wasting a lot of time and effort, also takes search knowledge as well as your familiarity with the website niche.

Once I get 30 to 40 usable keywords, I go and sign up my client with an account at Sheer SEO. They have SERP (search engine results position) keyword tracking online software, and offer a 60 day trial period. You can even test a website without signing up. Next is on-site SEO, then come back for the weekly update, ans select which phrases I want to gamble with.

For the off-site SEO, I have a source that managed to steer around Google's Panda and Penguin. But that's not enough for some, so I have this software, WSO CB BacklinkTopia. Now wait a week, go back to Sheer SEO, and see the outstanding results!

Fuel and Energy Savings Products - Our Building Plans

Well, I finally finished the "blue" prints for our building. And this thing is HUGE!!
... and I'll also have the electrical 99% finished by day's end.

I was thinking that this thing would take me at least one month to do all the drawings up, but I have become a whiz at Photoshop, and now I can see it taking only two weeks. So, everything is coming together quite well. Having the hand of God guide me in this is simply astounding! Blessing, glory, and honer be His.

Yea, I'm back into the Christian scene, and am attending a little church about one minute from my house, Victory Worship, which is a charismatic church Prescott Valley AZ, and will soon become their worship leader, as I was when my wife and I attended, about 18 years ago.

Our first fuel and energy saving factory for the perpetual motion energy generator will be located in the Prescott AZ area. We will employ 255 people, and our first year's profit will be in the neighborhood of 200 million ... sign up for employment today!

So without further ado, get yourself a lookie at this -

This first one is what our engineer has hooked up right now. But it's not the right gear ratio. This one has 74 teeth on the outer gear, and 34 teeth on the inner gear, giving it a ratio of 2,176:1 - not the ratio of 2:1 that is necessary.

What Is Google Penguin Update All About

On April 24, 2012, another Google algorithm change started targeting spammy websites, in hopes to remove them from search results. This algorithm update, also known as the Penguin Update, essentially punishes websites that spam Google by removing them from search results pages or lowering their rankings.

The chief aim of the Penguin Update is to improve search results by supplying quality sites to its searches and totally removing spam. Instead of manually spotting spam online and manually executing penalties, Google will now do this automatically, enforcing a penalty.

Google Penguin update explained: he goal of this algorithm is to reduce rankings of low quality sites, content mills. Google's Penguin update impacts keywords: the purposes of this update are to reward websites with quality content aimed at good user experiences and penalize sites practicing black hat tactics with nefarious link profiles.

10 Small Business Local Search Ranking Factors

What is Google Places?
Local business listings are valued highly by Google. If you do a local search which includes a place, town, city or local service, Google will display this local business box.     Go to Google Places
What determines your Google Places Rank?
So are you wondering what the ranking factors for local search engine optimization? Here are the top 10 factors that determine your Google Places ranking.

1. Claiming your Google Places Page/Local Listing.
Basically, Google may already have a listing for you that they put together through different sources. If not, then create one. Claiming your listing ensures that Google has the right information and protects it from others having access to it.

2. Business Address in City of Search.
Make sure your business address is correct so that those viewing your page know where you are. It also ensures you are displayed properly on the map. Your business having an address that resides in the local area searched will most definitely help with your ranking.

3. Proper Categories.
Selecting proper categories for your small business listing seems to be crucial. Experts suggest that you should select at least one of Google’s default categories and use your other selections as an opportunity to apply keyword strategies.

4. Product/Service Keyword Business Title.
Having a keyword that a user searches for in your business title has proven to be quite effective. Only if it is a part of your official business name though. So don’t go stuffing your business title with keywords if they aren’t as it will work against you in the long run.

5. Being Close to the Center of the City.
At this time, Google tends to give more weight to small business listings that are closer to the center of a city for local searching. They are getting better at recognizing the flexibility of a business so it may not have as much bearing on the results in the future. Especially when the exact position of the user is considered such as with a mobile device or when browsers become more aware. This applies mainly to larger cities of 200,000 or more.

6. Description Including Product/Service Keywords.
Do not keyword-stuff your description as you will be penalized. Avoid using the same keywords as in your categories as well. Use this as an opportunity to share more strategically selected keywords to support your small business. Your description is very important to the viewers of your listing so make sure it reads well and makes sense.

7. Adding Photos.
This is generally accepted as a means to provide a better user experience. There is some debate as to whether having photos improve the ranking of the small business local search listing. Having a complete profile does support increased credibility from a user perspective and likely the search engines. It certainly doesn’t hurt.

8. Local Area Code Association.
This is likely used as a confirmation of locality. The general consensus is that it doesn’t seem to be much more than that but it does help. Especially since users tend to be more apt to call a local

WARNING: Do NOT Use Meta Keywords!

From Search Engine Land, Oct 14, 2011
The Meta Keywords Tag Lives At Bing & Why Only Spammers Should Use It
Seems that Bing has brought back meta keywords, but not to find search value in a web page, rather to find out which ones are more trustworthy, and which ones are trying to spam their content.

The biggest error you can have, is irrelevant keywords, and keyword stuffing, and they suggest you Do NOT Use Meta Keywords. But the commenters feel different. See this article ...

Why You Should Use LongTail Keywords

Keywords for Search Engine Optimization: It's All About the Long Tail
No, I'm not talking about the animals at your local zoo. By 'long tail', I'm referring to the typically longer keyword phrases that are very specific to what a website is offering and what people are searching for. These phrases differ from the more basic, primary keywords that are heavily searched (cleverly called the 'head').

For example:

Head Keyword
Long Tail Keyword

mountain climbing
California mountain climbing tours

laundry detergent
environmentally-friendly laundry detergent

hardwood floors
recycled pine flooring

convertible wood baby cribs

The long tail of keyword research is definitely fundamental to your internet success. Because they have less competition from other websites, long tail keywords give you a much better chance of ranking highly in the search engines - and that means more visitors to your website.

And here's even better news: the people who search online using long tail keywords are much more likely to make a purchase! These specific keywords bring much greater conversions than general terms and phrases.

Something else that may surprise you: The long tail of a keyword represents a far greater number of searches than the head. In a 2008 report, Bill Tancer, general manager of global research at Hitwise, revealed that for any given topic, the top 100 keywords account for just 5.7% of all website traffic - while long tail keywords account for the remaining 94.3%!
