Have you ever had that feeling where you just can't look at something anymore? I've been studying the ins and outs of SEO. I have to say, I've been learning quite a few new things (more on this in a bit). I started with documentation for the AIOSEO plugin that come with my WA setup when I signed up. Some of the documentation for this is rather poor, so I have to go hunting around the internet looking for better and easier to understand explanations of things.Poor documention is not unique. I do

I've been doing some research into SEO, learning, for example, what all the settings do in the SEO plugin that comes with WordPress when you sign on. In the course of this research, I've occassionaly intersected wih information from Google that I thought I'd share. Note that I got just about all this information from various videos from Google.I'm a little reluctant to post URL's to these videos. WA has some very strict rules regarding external links. You WILL get in trouble and possibly have y

I recently read a blog from another member who talked about fear and her way of dealing with it. I thought it might be interesting to write down some of my fears and see what the community has to say about them and maybe write about some of their own fears. So here goes.Water. This is kind of odd. When I was a boy, you couldn't keep me out of a swimming pool or the ocean when visiting the beach. But the first time I visited Hawaii, my brother took us (me and my girlfriend) snorkeling; I was ter
Everybody experiences depression once in a while. Maybe a favorite pet has died. Maybe someone close to you has passed. Maybe you did something stupid and blew up your website; the amount of work to fix it and lost time has got you down.Depression is no joke. Chronic depression is considered a disease and is treated as such. It can be debilitating, interfering with your ability to work and perform simple tasks, like going to the grocery store.Depression is frequently associated with anxiety. Wi
I have a product I need to sell on my website. I say "need" because my site would look rather unfinished without it. I was originally signed up as an affiliate for Amazon. They cancelled my account because of lack of sales.I am considering signing back up.But:I am not a big fan of Amazon. I don't like their union busting tactics.I don't like their commision amounts, as low as 1% for some product types.I don't like that their employess have to pee in bottles and poo in bags. I don't like Amazon

I was doing some research the other day and ran across a website very similar to mine. It had similar subject matter and a near overwhelming amount of content.This had me pretty upset for a while and feeling like all my work was for nought. Who's going to look at my site with sites like the one I found already out there, indexed and rolling in the Google SERPs?But then I started thinking. It's a little trick I oftentimes use. I try to put myself in the position of the customer and ask myself "i

Years ago, I used to work in the IT industry. We had goals, long term goals oftentimes several weeks long. These goals were known by another name: deadlines. Deadlines frequently required massive amounts of hard word, overtime, and lost sleep. As the deadline approached, the stress level would exponentially rise. Miss the deadline, and you might have to say bye bye to your job. This happened to an employee of mine. He was running a bit behind on his part of a project my team had been assigned.H

I've been thinking about my next blog for my website. I oftentimes find myself doing this. I get an idea, and the blog starts writing itself in my head. So when I'm ready to start the actual writing, it goes pretty fast.I have to walk to the supermarket (my car is broken). I've done this so many times that I could almost do it blindfolded.So my body goes into a kind of autopilot mode and my brain starts churning. When I'm thinking about things I want to write about, something interesting someti

As I'm sure most of you are aware, Google is continuing it's "mobile search first" project they started a couple of years ago. For those of you who don't know, Google will be searching mobile devices first, before indexing pages meant for the desktop. The reason for this is because way more searches are being done on mobile devices as opposed to desktops. The next phase of this is in the middle of June, just a few days away.Now would be a good time to test your mobile device for user friendline
