If you don’t already know him, meet Paul Sutton.

Do You Understand The Basics Of Server Side SEO

Small Business Mavericks

We often talk about on-page SEO and off-page SEO, but rarely do you hear much spoken about server side SEO. Server side refers to the servers that your website sits on, much of which is controlled by your web hosting company. Shared servers (where you share a server with other web sites) are more affected than those with dedicated servers, however, they too do need an understanding of the basics of server side SEO. If you have a low cost web hosting company, then the issue can be even more important. If you have a dedicated server, then your issues are generally short lived.

Your email list can help you meet both these challenges. Give them something. Ask them something. When was the last time you surveyed your readers? Tell them something.

Net-Savvy Executive

What do you get when you look at social media as a source of information about people? This topic usually goes off into a discussion of influence , a result of thinking of social media as media.
