The next Google search algorithm is on the way, and while I don’t have a clue what they are going to name it (after Penguin, Panda, and Hummingbird, what’s next?), I do know what it is going to do, and better yet, I know that WordPress is ideally suited to keep the change from negatively impacting your website’s search results by taking very easy, very quickly implemented action.

Google is continually changing its search algorithm in its ever continuing effort to give Continue reading »

I get an unreal number of emails each and every day.  While the actual number may vary, the average is well up into the triple digits spread overt 4 email addresses.  Even when you discount the ones that are for support or are inquiring about HayleStorm Interactive services and just count the ones specifically to me (people selling me services or products, news items on topics I follow, etc) I still average 200+ emails received each day.

I do not read every one. The fact is I don’t even open them all.

Once I get past those that are business related that I really have to open…emails from PayPal, my bank, my insurance company, etc…I actually open less than 10 of my emails each day.

If you receive a lot of emails you are probably the same…and guess what?  The people you email with info on Continue reading »

We all have a common goal with our websites…page one in a Google search.  With very rare exception everything we do to our sites is driven, at least in part, toward getting our sites ranked high with search engines and we all work to get as much Google Love as possible, right?  We read every article, blog post (including this one), watch every video, and visit every forum we can find that we think might just have IT.

Then, when someone (anyone?) comes up with IT…we we scramble to do whatever they say, on the off chance they have found IT.  Even HSI has ideas you should be implementing!

The fact is there is no single thing…no Holy Grail…of collecting Google Love and landing Continue reading »

I wrote an article the other day about Google search and in the article I talked about “typing in” keywords.

That I concluded that sentence with ‘typing in’ shows that I am maybe somewhat behind the curve right here. Google visualizes a future where typed search inquiries are going to fall behind ‘speaking’ search questions. Which means we need a fresh technique.Google Hummingbird, the new search algorithm

That is why Google has actually released Google Hummingbird, an algorithm upgrade that (supposedly) beats Caffeine for its vastness. It will influence around Continue reading »

It seems like it was only last month that I told you that Google had made a major change in how webmasters would have to use Google’s Webmaster Tools (Or at least “major change” in my opinion.  To me, doing away with the much loved Keyword Tool was major).

Wait!  It WAS just last month…August 28th to be exact!

Well, Google has done it again.  The hits just keep on coming for SEO folks, and this is even faster Continue reading »
