SEO 101 – Don’t Forget that Dynamic Content!

by Chuck Swanson ~ September 10th, 2014

Chuck Swanson Before diving in here I want to take a brief moment to define (in my mind) what dynamic content is. Websites are made up mostly of static content; static because it’s likely been there a while without change. Most websites are made up of mostly static content, which isn’t necessarily a good thing, but it is common.  

SEO Best Practices: Managing a Successful Website Migration

by Chuck Swanson ~ July 29th, 2014

Chuck Swanson The words 'site migration' get tossed around a lot for a number of website upgrades. There’s the completely new site and there’s the refresh or site improvement, which might consist of a new look-and-feel, the addition (and subtraction) of some pages, and so on. Regardless of the site migration you are referring to it can be a daunting task.  

The Changing Face of Search Engine Marketing – The Splintering of Traditional SEO

by Chuck Swanson ~ July 10th, 2013

Chuck Swanson Search engine optimization (SEO) as we (at least in the trenches) have known is over. It’s not dead, but it’s evolving. Those white hat, but passé, tactics of directory listings and link building, in mass, are gone; as is mass content syndication, and these are good things. Google is trying to do its job of providing the best search results based on what people are looking for, and while they want the user to explore more options based on their search, they are still committed to providing the best options.  

Search Engine Optimization and Content Marketing – The Same Thing? YES!

by Jason Nuss ~ April 5th, 2013

Jason Nuss 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!  

Today’s (Online) Content Lifecycle

by Chuck Swanson ~ October 31st, 2012

Chuck Swanson Creating content that’s fresh, relevant (to whatever it is you’re applying it to), and well-written is crucial today for so many reasons. A few of them…  

CONTENT MARKETING


Today, content and content marketing are playing a central role in online brand visibility. Without a steady flow of fresh, relevant, well-written content your site will not be maximizing its search engine presence.

Content can come in many forms, all of which – if optimized – can set your site apart from competitors, giving you better online brand visibility, but perhaps even more important – a voice. A seat at the table, as they say, brings thought-leadership which goes miles toward shrinking sales cycles and converting new business.

  • Blogs – establish a blog and let prospects see your passion for what you do, how you do it, and who makes it happen
  • Video – create video content and differentiate yourself. YouTube and Vimeo are great places, beyond your site, to create a presence
  • Articles – write smart articles and syndicate them at article sites as well as distribute them to bloggers and publishers
  • Press Releases – set up shot at PRWeb.com and PRLog.org and publish your press releases. Create a media center or integrate them into your blog for more robust, searchable content
  • Enewsletters – interact with prospects, customers and partners and archive them on your site
