What Do You Know About SEO?

BWMagic's Internet Marketing News

What Do You Know About SEO?

I am sometimes asked this question and my first reaction
is always: "Not very much!"

However, after over 10 of running websites on the net and
considering I have been a full-time search engine marketer for
the last 5 years - I must know something about SEO.

The reason that question often throws me off, I never set out
to learn SEO. It is just something I picked up along the way...
a good tactic here, a new phrase there, something that works
better if you do this first. And on it goes...

Turns out I do know a lot about SEO but I still don't consider
myself an expert. Just someone who knows enough to make a half-decent
living from this web stuff.

However, I did surprise myself when I went to the link below
and discovered I knew ALL the terms mentioned:

This site contains all the SEO terms you should be familiar
with if you're running a site and/or is interested in SEO.
The ordinary Joe on the street probably doesn't know these
terms and is probably better off for it.

But this whole site and issue got me thinking about SEO and
exactly what did I know about it. I sat down and tried to
summarize or condense everything I knew about SEO into a few
basic concepts or tactics.

Boiling it down to the core or to the heart of what SEO tactics
have worked for me. Just some simple techniques that has made
all the difference in the world.

Anyway, if you want to find out more about my own discoveries
on SEO and what works - go here:

Online Fax Guide Gets Major Update And New Look

June 16, 2010., a handy Internet fax services comparison site, recently got a major update and a new fresher look. This well established online fax site offers numerous ways potential users of Internet fax can get vital information they need to choose the right fax provider for themselves or their company. It comes complete with informative videos, a convenient comparison chart of the different online fax providers and plans, plus a very comprehensive PDF Fax Guide which visitors can download for free.

Recently, this popular online fax site received a major update with a new fresher look and a faster web host with a dedicated IP address. It is also expanding its coverage with more articles and features on the whole subject of web faxing. It has also added two new fax companies - Nextiva Fax and PopFax to its site, providing more choices for visitors.

"Online fax is constantly changing as new providers come online and established fax service companies offer new features," states Titus Hoskins, a former teacher who now runs the site. "For instance, RingCentral has just increased the amount of free faxes users get each month from 300 to 500, while still keeping the same monthly rate."

Providing potential users of online fax with helpful comparisons and informative reviews is the main goal of and this latest update is further proof of this fact. In addition, helpful content is regularly added to the site to keep visitors updated and informed on this relatively new way of faxing. Since this is usually a long-term business expense, doing a little homework now can pay big dividends down the road, especially if your company or business depends heavily upon faxing to bring in sales or for contacting clients.

Online fax is completely portable, more convenient and a lot less expensive than the traditional fax machine in the office. Plus, since all your faxing is done through your computer and your email system, you don't have the cost of an extra fax phone line. Nor do you have the ongoing expenses of buying papers, inks and toners or even fax machine maintenance for that matter. All this makes online fax a great money saver for individuals and companies in these uncertain economic times.

Can Google Become The Next Facebook?

Everyone has an opinion on Google, here's mine. Most people would admit Google is the most important entity on the web, but Facebook is beating Google in a lot of areas and my main question is this: Can Google Become The Next Facebook?

Can Google Become The Next Facebook?

Is it just me but didn't Google recently put everything on its main homepage except for Google Buzz? What's up with that? For heaven's sake, they even put the PacMan game in their logo for two days running... you would think some of the brightest minds on the planet would have figured out by now if Google truly wants to compete on the new memeyouyou web, they simply have to fully integrate all their programs into one homepage or at least place Buzz right there along side the Gmail button.

Google Buzz has all the ingredients to finally make Google your one-stop center on the web. It can be THE place for sharing not just your conversations but photos, videos, and everything else. Will it live up to its full potential and become a true Facebook killer?

The main reason Facebook is such a threat to Google is not because of the massive amount of users it has, but the amount of time those users stay on Facebook. If you just look at the Alexa comparison alone, Facebook users spend over 30 minutes on the site, which is triple the time users stay on Google. Facebook also beats Google in the bounce rate and page views per user. Could all the recent changes to their SERPs be, not only Google's answer to the upcoming Bing/Yahoo marriage, but a strong way of presenting a real challenge to Facebook's overwhelming stats.

Web users are lazy and they want a one-stop solution to meet all their needs. They want to connect with friends and family, they want to broadcast to the world, they want to search for something to buy, they want to be entertained... iGoogle should be that solution/center but I don't believe it quite passes the test because there is still no Google Buzz?

The main problem with Google is that it has no well-defined center which users could call their own. Perhaps I am reading this wrong, but have Google users fully bonded with iGoogle? Putting the privacy issues aside, I don't think they have embraced it in the same way web users have embraced their Facebook. What is missing are all the elements that are present in Google Buzz, but again we seem to have two disjointed programs rather than one solid rallying point.

For many web users, Facebook is the starting point of their web day... in many cases, it is probably the only place they go on the web religiously each day. Why? Because all their friends/family are on there and they don't want to miss out on any news or gossip. Not checking your Facebook page has become the ultimate faux pas of this new social media etiquette.

No one is going defeat or compete with Facebook you say?

Not so fast! Even empires come and go, a web site is even more fickle, especially if something more convenient comes along. Does anyone remember MySpace
which is still a very popular site but no longer has the numbers it once had. Facebook or even Google could suffer the same faith if something better comes along.

Google's main business is online search. It is its bread and butter which may have blinded those in charge from seeing the bigger picture. The bigger payday.

Google owns so many popular sites within the top 20 including YouTube and Blogger... if only they could better connect all their interests into one SuperSite or one SuperDevice for those thinking within the box. Online search can still be the main course but you need to corral all of these different users into one starting point or center with a couple of Billion users logging in each morning to start their web day. Just imagine the ad revenue potential that would generate for the big G.

Impossible you say, but not really, all the ingredients are there to form this SuperSite but it needs one big bang to get it going, to create a center of the web universe which will be Google.

Whenever I think about Google, I am reminded of a class 5 Hurricane with all these popular sites and programs swirling around it like mad, but there is no eye to this hurricane, at least not yet. Google needs a solid center to draw everything into focus and get everyone at the same starting point. Whether it is the Google search page, Google Buzz, Google Profiles, Gmail or iGoogle... but it all needs to be pulled together if Google wants to truly compete with Facebook for all the marbles.
