Digg Spam

There are people who are spamming the social networks with stories of quuestionable content. Digg spam is getting worse with the typical "rorex repreica" ads and the usual V{&#$GRA spam. Perhaps we can get the people at Digg to clamp down on the spammers who destroy destinations with their mercantile mentality.

Importance of SEO

I feel that few thingd are more important to your website than SEO. If people cannot find you they cannot benefit from your content and they cannot purchase your products. An empty mall means bankruptcy for the store, likewise a website without traffic means failure for its founder.

All firms need to become visible to customers. Using SEO to help your business involves tactics to gain exposure and new ways to get ranked in Google. In addition to text search there is Youtube for your videos and Google images for pictures you may have.

It is wise to use multiple methods to get exposure to clients because you increase the chances that your firm might make a sale. The more customers see your business the greater the opportunity to make a connection.

Jobs disappearing?

They say there is much unemployment, but a better reason is that our jobs are disappearing. We see outsourcing to India as a major reason that there are fewer jobs in the US. Many media jobs such as creating graphics, programming shopping carts, developing web sites are being sent to India. You can replace a $35,000/yr US job with a person making $3,000/yr and thats not all. The company saves even more money because they do not have to pay medical insurance, workmans comp, employment tax, and an office or cubicle.

It does not take a genius to see that we will soon have soaring unemployment rates as more work is sent to low wage venues.

Using image tags for SEO

Image tags help visually impaired people understand your web site. They also assist search engines in categorizing your content. For this reason it is wise to use image tags in your web pages.

Typically I will have about three images per page and 200-300 words of content. If there are many more words of content the user is forced to scroll and can get bored with dry text. Adding pictures and videos will not only spice up your content, but image tags help the search engines find it.

Getting to the top of the search engines

My view is that you should concentrate on the very long tail keywords that most ignore. As the saying goes - one mans trash is another mans treasure. If you go after the big high traffic keywords you will end up on position 257 or something and get very little traffic.

Another saying goes like this - it is better to be a big frog in a small pond than a small frog in a big pond. This becomes very true on the internet. Aaron Wall has tips to get new web sites to rank quickly. When you are new you have few back links and getting ranked by the search engines if difficult; this is one more reason to stay away from the big high traffic keywords that are hard to do well in.

Once you are doing well with low traffic words and have mastered them you can expand to higher traffic keywords (more competitive) and move up the food chain of the net.

Is it OK to use fake avatars?

Well, some people think it is not OK to use fake avatars in social media and want a real person behind the profile. Personally, I feel that people should be able to "cosplay" an avatar and pretend to have an alter ego. This is just me, but are handles a way to become another individual or not?
