How Pandas, Penguins and Pigeons Are Affecting Your Business

You probably didn't realize that zoo animals would affect your website, your business or revenues, right? Google has been naming its algorithms based on zoo animals and the three having the biggest impact in the past three years is a bear and two birds! Google's algorithm changes are designed to provide quality websites while pushing down thin or low-quality websites in the search results. Google's efforts are certainly admirable as they are the most used search engine and over years the impact has been one for the better. What is harder to deal with is that we have a small group of people causing the majority of people a lot of hardship. This is affecting business revenues and expenses alike. Your revenues are affected because your web site's ranking is affected negatively. Your expenses are affected because you have to spend money to make corrections. Of course we could spend a lot of time fretting about these changes or we can cowboy up and push forward. Fretting about these things is an emotional response that will have not value other than to let off steam. Pressing forward to accept the changes and objectively making corrective decisions is probably a better [...]

How Google Algorithm Changes Are Impacting Marketing Processes

Ever notice how you have to go back and make changes to your website when Google makes an algorithm change or adds a new algorithm? Some of the most significant changes that have taken place since 2008 have had an impact on not only website changes, but how a business markets itself on the Internet. Google makes many changes over the course of a year, and trying to address each and every one of them is not necessary. Many of the changes are designed to hinder cheaters and fraud websites from abusing the system and getting to the top of the search results. Conceptually, it is important to understand the impact on your business when these changes are made. It is equally important to understand that web marketing has no endpoint and change is inevitable. "Expect change and accept change" is something I have presented in years past. Trying to fight the dynamic and fluid environment of the web is not logical for your business, nor is it fruitful use of your time. Keep emotion out of it, press forward and adapt to the changing environment. We will review a few of the more prominent algorithm changes by Google and [...]

How To Use Sitemaps To Promote Your Website

Sitemaps were traditionally utilized as a user interface to help visitors find particular website content. Generally, standard HTML sitemaps have a sitemap page which consists of links and descriptions to all pages within the website. Sometimes the pages are even organized with headings. The sitemap process has matured considerably in the past few years, beginning when Google introduced Sitemaps 0.84 in June 2005 to accommodate the publishing of lists of links for an entire business website. That was when sitemap idea progressed to pushing your website URLs out to the general digital community using server based files. The server based files come in a variety of formats including HTML, XML, ROR, Text and zipped files as .gz format. Soon, support for sitemaps began to gain acceptance by the larger search engines. In November 2006, Google, MSN and Yahoo announced joint support for the Sitemaps protocol. At that time, the version was called Sitemap 0.90 and the website Sitemaps.org was created. In April 2009, Ask and IBM announced support for Sitemaps. At the same time Google, Yahoo, MSN announced their search robots would auto-discover sitemaps through a command in the robots.txt. With these sitemaps search engines can more intelligently index the [...]
