A while back I wrote an article on How to Stay on Google’s Good Side. That post addressed guidelines for your website to help placement in Google.
Next, how about some SEO-specific information?
Well, we’re adjusting to the new schedule (such as it is) with the kids. Meanwhile, I’m already back in the saddle and working on daily business matters. So new posts to this blog will be appearing in the next week or so.
Although Steve Krug’s book Don’t Make Me Think: A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability has been around for years, its not one all website owners are aware of. This is an outstanding book that doesn’t require technical know-how.
Who is this book for? EVERYONE involved in the creation of a website. That includes you website owners, project managers, and any of the other non-techies and non-artists who will be involved on the project. This information can save you a lot of headache and learning things the hard way. It will also save you arguing with your experienced web designer who already knows the principles this book covers.

As some of you know (or possibly don’t know!) I am pregnant with twins, due to deliver in October.
No need to worry about your websites; I still have a business to run.
So here’s how this will work for a couple of months after the kids are born. [Read more…]
A lot of individuals are taken in by the hype surrounding email marketing. The websites look great, the results sound promising. I’ll say it before and I’ll say it again: “if it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is”. The Internet is just like your offline life. Never believe the two are different. Just because it’s in writing, doesn’t mean it’s true.
So why would I say buying an email list is bad when so many say it’s so good?
For starters…those saying its so good are frequently after your wallet. Ask yourself: who’s saying its so great? Are they in the business of selling those lists? Or in a business that is in any way related to that? Or maybe they’re a novice touting themselves as experts, just parroting what they’ve read (and believe me, there are a lot of those).
Ok, that doesn’t really answer the question. So why is it BAD? Two good reasons. [Read more…]
This is a subject that doesn’t occur to most website owners. Not until they’ve unwittingly done something to attract the attention of a person with a lawyer. Or maybe even after their host has shut their site down.
A fair number of website owners even think they understand the legalities of owning a website. And again are surprised when a sticky situation appears.
You don’t have to go through that headache. So let’s arm you with some information about your website.
Most people begin their adventures in the world of email newsletters by sending out very casual emails. After a while, they start noticing a lot of articles online about email newsletters. Much of that information is confusing and overwhelming. Some if it contains information about the languages used to create the email, such as HTML and CSS. That information isn’t too helpful if you’re just doing the writing and handling other non-technical decisions.
