Just take a second to stop and take a long hard look at your current business.

Clients continue to give the lion’s share of the budget to lower ROI acquisition routes, your SEO processes are taking up more of your team’s time, your to-do list is just getting longer not shorter, you’re having to prove the value of your work more often and your margins are being squeezed with every Google update.

This isn’t how it was supposed to be was it? Continue reading

Parasite Google Results Pages

I can’t recall seeing this before but it appears that some people have stumbled upon a way to use Google’s own search results pages as a Parasite.

Here’s the results page if it is still working! But it appears the additional “/” in the URL is causing some of the confusion and causing them to appear.

Use Crazy Egg to Make You More Money

If you are serious about making money from your website then it is important to have a heat mapping tool like Crazy Egg.

Crazy Egg lets you see where, when and how visitors have been interacting on your website. It offers you great options for landing pages and it gives you an insight into what people are doing on your website – something that you would not normally be able to see on your own. Using a script like Crazy Egg will allow you to see how much business is drawn to your landing page and what you can do to improve your results.

Do I Have a Landing Page?

This is a question that only you can answer about your advertising. You would know if you have one, but they are a great tool for you to have if you want to advertise or market your particular products. A landing page is a great tool that fills the gap in between your ad and the product you promote. It is a page that visitors are sent directly to when they click on your ad. You can put your reasons for why you love the product and why they should buy the product to ensure that they will go onto the next step (the product you’re advertising) and buy it.

What is this Crazy Egg?

Brand Publishing and Monitoring

There are two components of brand management that are on the mind of most bloggers and business owners: competition and public reputation.

• Competitive mentions based on keyword and URL searches

BuzzBundle has a search engine function that can scout out similar keywords or campaigns. The monitoring system allows the addition of up to 10 competitors and 10 links for each site. This system can really increase the amount of information by adding whatever social media site is needed to track such as a YouTube channel or a niche page.

• The ability to track competitive SEO strategies and the progress of those strategies
