So, today I had the distinct privilege of being a chaperone for my daughter’s second grade class as they set out for the Oregon Food Bank to volunteer. You see, May 8th is Mount Hood Climb Service Day at her school, where every student from Pre-K to grade 12 does community volunteering to honor the nine people killed when bad weather overcame their hiking party on Mount Hood in 1986.
Putting that SEO keyword list together is important part of any website optimization effort. Of course the keyword list, while forming the foundation for your SEO efforts is critical it should never be a static list. It should evolve and morph over time as you see ranking success (or no ranking success), measure keyword site traffic, or adjust to meet changing client products and solutions. That said you should obviously put your best foot forward, which isn’t always easy!
Last June we undertook a website overhaul that resulted in us placing our blog content on our homepage.

Over the past couple of years Google has implemented a number of algorithm changes (Panda and Penguin) that have helped blur the lines between search engine optimization (SEO) and content marketing. And that’s a good thing! When I first started optimizing websites back in the day it was more science and less art; link building and keyword density ratios made for a rather scientific approach to constructing and optimizing sites for search. This has all changed and frankly we have Google to thank!
