Google's Search Engine Optimization Guide: Shiny and New

I got this email from a marketer I like and trust, so I opened it despite its title: The Ultimate PDF.



Soon after, I was glad I did. It turned out to be a guide written and published by Google just one month ago, November 13, 2008. Although I’ve read many publications about organic search and how to optimize web/ or blog pages, I don't recall ever reading an entire document about it by Google itself.



Initially written for members of the Google team, this document explains… Continue

Over the last several days (maybe even a week or more) I have been inundated with requests to become friends with, link to, participate with or have gotten spammed by individuals who are using Social Media sites to expand their sphere's of influence.

Recession-Proof Your Business Before It’s Too Late!

The fact is the economy will continue to slow, more people will lose their jobs, and there are less people every day ready, willing and able to buy your products or services. So what can you do? How will you survive in 2009?



The answer is actually quite simple…you need to generate many more prospects to yield you the same results. But how will you get them…spend money to advertise? Probably not the best way to go at the moment. Instead, focus your time and money on developing long… Continue

"Be daring, be different, be impractical. Be anything..." 3 Things that will contribute to your Success!!

"Be daring, be different, be impractical. Be anything that will assert imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of common-place, the slaves of the ordinary." - Sir Cecil Beaton



Let's be honest, none of us really wants to be considered ordinary. Even if one thinks that ordinary is enough, there is a deeper vision that has probably been buried inside the self-conscience. In my world I want to be the extreme opposite of ordinary. I… Continue

A carrot, an egg, and a cup of coffee...You will never look at a cup of coffee the same way again.

A young woman went to her mother and told her about her life and how things were so hard for her. She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give up, she was tired of fighting and struggling. It seemed as one problem was solved, a new one arose..



Her mother took her to the kitchen. She filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Soon the pots came to boil. In the first she placed carrots, in the second she placed eggs, and in the last she placed… Continue

"Spam Is For Making Sandwiches, NOT MONEY!"

Spam although its used for making sandwiches, it certainly is not the best tasting stuff around. Would you not agree?



But yes, there are those who do enjoy it. Why I don't know but they do.



Me, I hate the stuff! Both the kind used to make sandwiches and the stuff that many are spreading all over the internet on many of the social networking sites that I visit.
