Fight ProcrastinationSuppose you had a magic card that can only be used once – on any day you choose over the age of 18 – to magically transport you as a bystander to a day in the life of someone you admire as a role model; the single task you had to accomplish from your keen observations is how to get 80% output from 20% of your time.  At what point in time would you use this card? 18, 25, 45, 50 or never? Certainly, if you do choose to use your card, an air of cheerfulness with a bust of optimism in the moment leading to the mystic journey will excite your senses.  The prospects and corporeal benefits may perhaps keep you awake on the eve reflecting and clearing the mind of all its clutter in order to free up room.  What difference will it make? It could fast forward progress, it may back track it, it may get you get stuck at the early stage or perhaps it may give you willpower to ignore past experiences and start experimenting?  More importantly, what separates successful people from the other?

How Many Keywords Should I Track?

How Many Keywords Should I Track?

Keyword TrackingI will try to answer this question based upon the real-life example – our band clothes selling client, who had been doing SEO the wrong way for many years before he finally realized the website can perform better and contacted us for assistance.

Our client sells 6 types of clothing of 450 rock bands. These 6 types were packed into 3 pages because this is the perfect number to ensure great user experience with the store. For example we placed hats and beanies on one page. Well, we reduced the number of pages but of course not the number of keywords to rank for.

An Awful Mumbo Jumbo of Google Adwords Geo Targeting

An Awful Mumbo Jumbo of Google Adwords Geo Targeting

Geo Targeting Google AdwordsThis is another true story that happened to our client, FeelKiev.com, company that offers accommodation rental services for foreigners in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine. Basically their clients are located all over the world but Ukraine.

We set up an Adwords campaign and limited its geographical targeting to several countries. In two months we analyzed organic traffic and decided to show FeelKiev’s ads in all countries but two: Ukraine and Russia.

Then, in just one single moment, Google made our advertising impossible. Those who are experienced in geo targeting issues might have already guessed what happened. Yes, we got that message saying our ads were not running because of the words ‘Kiev’ and ‘Ukraine’ that supposed to trigger ads.

What nonsense!

Does Google’s Penalty Mean Death of MyBlogGuest and Guest Blogging?

Does Google’s Penalty Mean Death of MyBlogGuest and Guest Blogging?

Google PenaltyCouple of days ago (namely, on March, 19) Google penalized myblogguest.com, a startup by Ann Smarty. This caused lots of articles and discussions on the web, so I also decided to share my thoughts. Frankly speaking lots of online marketers, including me, were expecting something like that to happen in the near future, after Matt Cutts shared his video about the decay of guest blogging.

Did anything bad actually happen?

Definitely not! Just on the contrary, Ann is much talked about these days and Google’s penalty made her and her website even more popular. Moreover, I dare to state that by speaking about it publically, Matt Cutts gave more exposure to the Ann’s network. When one doors closes, another one opens, that’s for sure. This is why I think Ann will definitely find the way to come off victorious. Read more about Does Google’s Penalty Mean Death of MyBlogGuest and Guest Blogging?

What Kind of Content Do They Love?

What Kind of Content Do They Love?

Content LoveContent is a king – that is out of the question, but the question is – what type of content do they love, what kind of content do they share/re-share via Google+, Facebook, Twitter and other social accounts?

‘Good content’ is the simplest answer that might come to one’s mind… Well, I think that we should look at the question from a different angle. Good content does not always enjoys shares, but tones of shares do make content good.

This article is not about instructions on creating shareable content; it’s rather a list of statements based on observations and years of experience.

Is There a Life After Google Panda or Penguin Penalty?

Life After Panda PenaltyGoogle’s Panda and Penguin penalties are a real nightmare not only for website owners, but for SEOs as well, since quite often they lose their job. The main question I would like to talk about here is: what shell you do if you were severely penalized by The Big G.
