Happy SEO Christmas: Vatican.VA Site Review

ShareTweet Ah Christmas!.. Don’t know about you, but I’ve managed to get myself a good distance over my fighting weight. Also – something strange has happened to the space time continuum, that has nothing to do with the Doctor Who Christmas special. I’ve lost a day somewhere. It is New Years Eve tomorrow and I have less than 24 hours to lose that weight and decide which party to go to. Or I could just stay in, scoff the remaining stilton and make a list of resolutions. (No. 1. Stop counting “hoovered the rug” as an excercise class.) I digress. Christmas isn’t all about me. It’s about you. It’s about giving, growing, learning and (ahem) religious tradition. (And with the [...]

SEO 101 – Paid Links: To Buy or Not To Buy

ShareTweet Welcome to the latest installment in our SEO 101 series, where we attempt to weed out all the conjecture and give you a very basic understanding of the part of online marketing that we’re most comfortable with…mine being links. Lucky, lucky me. Now, the reason for my choice of paid vs. non-paid links as a subject for 101 is because I think that there’s a huge amount of misinformation about paid links out there, and, being public service-minded (not really), I view it as my goal to explain just what the fuss is all about. After all, if you’re starting to build links, you’re going to soon get into the whole paid vs non-paid debate, right? Note: We’ve written [...]

SEO 101 – You’ve got your keywords, now what?

ShareTweet This is the third of the SEO Chicks 101 series that Lisa introduced a couple of weeks ago with her delve into canonicalisation issues. The second post in the series was Nicholas look at data analysis This post was inspired by Lesley Cutts, owner of one of my favourite sites who posted what I thought was an interesting response to a statement I made on twitter. Now not to make you think I’m disorganised, but I had lost some notes I had made on a keyword strategy for a client (I found them in the end & all was well), and Lesley commented that she wouldn’t know where to begin writing down a keyword strategy, as it seemed [...]

Moonlighting, Pilates & Regulation

ShareTweet There are a number of things that have led me to this post. I first started thinking about it following Judith’s post on SEO Moonlighting, then I had an experience with my pilates instructor and her website, that has my blood boiling still a week later, and finally Judith turned the SEO accreditation strategy session into a blog post which cemented my ideas and suddenly this post came together. I had planned for this to be the third in the SEO chicks 101 series, but this had to be written (in the way that blog posts often do) so I’m afraid you will have to wait until Thursday if you want to learn more about Keyword strategies. For now [...]

The SEO accreditation Strategy session seminal meeting happened and with it, a lot of ideas for qualifications, accreditation and service levels emerged.
