SEO Tools & Software Alone Won’t Make You Successful #SEOLunch

SEO Tools & Software Alone Won’t Make You Successful #SEOLunch

SEO Tools… They’re everywhere! From web based interfaces to downloadable apps, if you’re involved with SEO work, you’ve probably tripped over a dozen already. While tools are en excellent asset for any practicing SEO, they’re not the only thing required for success. There also seems to be this weird notion that SEO tools are a one-size-fit all type of resource, which I struggle to understand. Let’s take a dive in… #SEOLunch is only an hour long! SEO Tools and Exclusivity…

Kevin Rose, Google+ and Spilt Milk #SEOLunch

Kevin Rose, Google+ and Spilt Milk #SEOLunch

For all the pomp and circumstance, Google+ really is a floundering mess, isn’t it? While that’s surprising to some, it’s not like Google has been very successful with their other social endeavors, either. Since launching the service last Summer, Google has tried incredibly hard to sell us on their (no longer) new and (not so) exciting social network. Now, I haven’t shied away from expressing my views on why the social network is (for me) considered as a failure. For…

Google Assistant, Privacy Issues & Semantic Search #SEOLunch

Here is how SEJ author David Angiotti referenced the interview: The algorithmic…

A couple months ago there was a tremendous amount of commotion as Google was outed in what boiled down to a sponsored post campaign where more than 400 bloggers were paid to help build up backlinks to the Google Chrome browser download page. There is a lot of background on the core situation as well as the subsequent fallout, backpedaling and industry reaction. I personally found the poll over at Search Engine Roundtable to be particularly interesting. Earlier today Search…

Google’s Greed Has Produced Horrific Social Experiences #SEOLunch

Google’s Greed Has Produced Horrific Social Experiences #SEOLunch

A lot has been made of James Whittaker’s comments regarding his tenure with Google and how there appeared to be a fundamental shift in Google’s approach to social content and sharing. In short (in my Rick Pitino voice..): It stinks. And it sucks. And I don’t like it. And you can bet your ass that Facebook’s users aren’t walking through that door. Now, despite having created a Google+ page for my blog yesterday, I have never minced words with my…

Why Does Google Hate Webmasters So Much? #SEOLunch

Why Does Google Hate Webmasters So Much? #SEOLunch

Okay, it’s time for another #SEOLunch! …and since no one provided me recommendations on topics to discuss, I’m choosing my own. SPOILER ALERT… I’m upset with something Google is up to. Such a shock, right? Cue the sensationalist headline… Today I’m going to rant a bit about Google’s Webmaster Tools. Why? Because they’re making changes again – and typically – that means that the abilities of webmasters and online marketers are compromised or altered. That’s precisely what has happened. Another…
