• What’s In A Name?

    Many SEO love keyword-loaded domain names. The theory is that domains that feature a keyword will result in a boost in ranking. It’s still a contentious topic: I've seen bloggers, webmasters and search aficionados argue the case around the death of EMDs time and time again, despite the evidence staring them in the face: EMDs are still all over the place.

  • Please Remove My Link. Or Else.

    Getting links removed is a tedious business. It’s just as tedious for the site owner who must remove the links.

  • Measure For Business Benefit

    Matt Cutts is just toying with SEO’s these days. Going by some comments, many SEOs still miss the big picture. Google is not in the business of enabling SEOs. So he may as well have a little fun - Matt has “called it” on guest posting. Okay, I’m calling it: if you’re using guest blogging as a way to gain links in 2014, you should probably stop.
