Whitehat SEO tips for bloggers

Harith, I’m comfortable with SEO being whitehat/blackhat; I don’t think you’d get many blackhats to say “I don’t do SEO; I do spam!”

Barry, I didn’t want to copy the photos without permission, but also wanted people to see the photos first. But your link will cause people to see it.

Anjanesh, you’d have to check with John; he uploaded it, not me. If I did it, I would have put it up on Google Video. 🙂

Barry, I use WordPress (that’s part of why I was speaking at WordCamp) I think using the “blockquote” tag is the way to quote in a box.

Steve Hill, Danny always teases gently. And in

Teen Internet Safety Tips

Every web site has this thing called a “privacy policy.” It will tell you
how that web site uses all the personal information about you, like your name.
In some cases, though, when you’re not looking, some web sites ignore their
privacy policy and sell your email address to other companies. When you open
your email one day, you might have 150 spam emails in your inbox as a result.
If a web site is asking for too much information about you, take control and
leave the site. (Again, would you give this information to some older stranger
at the mall? Probably not.)


What about Nude Photos and Sex Sites?

You’ve probably come across some explicit sexual material on the Internet.
That’s because pornography is big business on the web. If you come across a
pornography site or get pornographic email, take control: Leave the site

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) News and Tips

Voice Search & B2B Marketing Strategy

Can you imagine if we actually talked to one another the same way we’ve historically talked to search engines? It would make for some awkward interactions.

“Minneapolis movie showtimes.”

“Um… come again?”

“Showtimes Captain Marvel 55441.”

“Are you –”

“Movie showtimes cheapest theater arcade games. I’m feeling lucky.”

“Sir, this is a Wendy’s.”

It’s only fitting I suppose that our adherence to Google’s robotic algorithms has, in turn, made us more robotic. Searchers became trained to speak in the engine’s keyword-driven language. Marketers crafted SEO strategies accordingly.
