Overture Keyword Tools Dies

Brad Fallon is reporting on the death of the Overture keyword tool.  THE tool all of us have been using to determine virtual real-estate (VRE)… As many of you are by now aware, Overture’s “keyword suggestion tool” has gone dead this week after about a month of sporadic behavior. I seem to recall reading that…

Adsense Placement And Clickability

By now you should have all read about the famous “Golden Triangle”. The top/left/above-the fold portion of your web pages and blog entries that attracts the most eyeballs. Of course, Brad Fallon and his SEO partner stressed that in the free videos for StomperNet. Ok, so you got that. Now read this about clever ads……

Click Fraud: Google Sued AGAIN By Advertisers!

Google still is in denial concerning click fraud saying that it amounts to less than 10% of clicks. But what else are they supposed to say? If they say that click fraud is a bigger problem they could find shareholders dumping their stock. If you are advertising with Google Adwords then I highly recommend that…

SEO for Blogs

Here is a great site that covers SEO for WordPress. And my favorite piece of advice is… Writing appealing content will always draw more visitors than having content which is bland and/or generic.

They were going to install towers in metro areas, but I think they failed to implement their plan fast enough. They lost…

The End To Search Engine Spam Is Near

I don’t visit forums or message boards very often. Why? 1. Because it’s like dope. You can spend the whole day in there reading meaningless shit and commenting on threads. Time that would be better spent working on your business. 2. I hate idiots and trolls. When someone is disrespectful to me — I wanna…

Google Spy Satellites

The NRO better watch its back. Once upon a time, detailed photo images of the earth were classified, now they are FREE for the taking… I mean searching. Google has enhanced its Google Maps and Google Local services with satellite and aerial images, letting users view digital snapshots of an area, the Mountain View, California,…

Brad Fallon Sighted At Hooters

Last month, I invited friend and fellow Georgian Brad Fallon to lunch, so we could meet and talk shop. The venue we chose? Hooters in Kennesaw — of course. It great meeting Brad in person, and the one thing that impressed me the most is how BIG he thinks.  He always has five or six pokers in…
