And I am headed back to my home office to sort through a ton of email a
What's wrong with kids these days? And, by kids, I mean anyone born after 1980.But saying "no problem" seems to be a generational thing.When I say, "thank you," I don't want to hear "no problem." I am of an older generation.I say "thank you" to acknowledge something done for me. If it is a problem for someone to do something, they should say so up front.Saying "no problem" afterwards implies it may have been a problem.

Sometimes we get overly concerned about keywords when developing our website content.Hopefully, the following information will help put this into perspective.According to Google,"Google ranking systems sort through hundreds of billions of webpages in the Search index to give you useful and relevant results in a fraction of a second."To this end, the Google Search Algorithm looks into the meaning of your search query words (among other things).In other words, Google is interpreting search querie
Yay!!It is Monday May 21st, my 2nd year anniversary at Wealthy Affiliate.Thanks a million to the Wealthy Affiliate community.I am thankful to have found Wealthy Affiliate. I was very reluctant to join since I had been marketing online for so many years already. But I did not know what I did not know.
