    [Blog] How To Rank In Google 101
    Provide useful content and update your website often with a blog where you post original content associated with your niche. Google likes to help new webmasters. That’s why they recently published a PDF document that is a one-page cheat sheet for beginning webmasters to help them learn the basics of search engine optimization. These few suggestions Google offers won’t guarantee your website a page 1 ranking, but they do give you the basic run down on what Google is looking for from websites. It’s pretty simple, really. Use short, descriptive file names for your images.

    [Blog] Search Rankings Aren’t Man Vs. Robot
    Jennifer Ledbetter wrote about something on her blog last week that not many people know about. She explained that when your web pages hit the No. spot in Google rankings, they are then reviewed by real human eyeballs. It’s not all “ man vs. machine ,” she said. That’s an important thing to understand. Search rankings are not just based on algorithms. If you do well and get your pages ranked for keywords that you target, you’ll have to get through a human reviewer. If your web pages can stand the scrutiny of that reviewer, they may stay at the top.

    [Blog] Is Your Small Business Like A Fly On An Elephant?
    If you read blog posts like this one you might come away with the impression that your small local business is insignificant, worthless, and doomed to get lost in the great cyberspace shuffle. Don’t believe it for a minute. First off, Mike Blumenthal is absolutely correct about Google’s algorithm. It is impersonal and computational. But that doesn’t mean you don’t deserve a better ranking. What should you if you find your small business not having the ranking in Google Places that you think it deserves? Will writing a letter to Google make it better? Not likely.

    Build your links from a lot of different types of websites (directories, blogs, forums, etc.) When you go about your link building campaigns, do you bother yourself with ensuring your links are varied in nature? That is, do you use the same anchor text all the time or do you strive to create a more diverse link portfolio? The truth is most SEOs only use one primary keyword for their anchor text. Link diversity means several things. It isn’t all about anchor text. That’s only one part of the equation. The key is to build a link portfolio that looks natural. within your niche.
