How to Use Google Buzz to Market Your Local Business
Have you heard about Google Buzz? Brian does a great job about the impacts it could have on your business and in Google’s local search. Check it out to see the implications it could have for you!
“…While everyone is checking out its cool features and new worlds of communication it has literally just opened up, all of us in the SEO profession are asking: “How will it affect local SEO?” Let me first point out a few all but obvious strategic advantages Google Buzz has over its competition…”read more
Social Media Optimization: SMO is the New SEO
GREAT article on why you now need to make sure you’re focusing on SMO (social media optimization), or as I call it SMM (social media marketing). This article really cuts down why both SEO and SMM are so important.
“…Technicalities involved with wiring SEO are not the same processes required to boost visibility in social networks like Facebook, MySpace, YouTube and Twitter. And it’s in social networks like these where people are increasingly spending time communicating, finding relevant and interesting content, and sharing it with their connections. So now, in addition to SEO, we have to implement and manage a Social Media Optimization (SMO) program around our content to increase visibility in these new environments…”read more
“It’s always scary changing your website even when you know you need an update. Lots of times you feel like you are on an island and the people developing your website could care less if they respond to your concerns or not. Not only did Lindsay and her staff stay in constant contact with me through the entire process, they responded immediately to each question, and improved on my own ideas for the site. They thought of things that I would have never considered and have also taken my haphazard social media postings and formed a consistent strategy that is sure to blow the doors off anything I have done before. I feel like I have gotten many times over my money’s worth already. Thanks Lindsay and team!”

“Thanks a lot for such a good work. Probably for you it was something that you just do all the time, but after I had so many unfortunate dealings with three of your predecessors and never felt quite satisfied, I can really appreciate and thank you for what you are doing with my new site.”
“The online world is a great place to make money and gain notoriety but it can be a tremendous waste of resources if you don’t have the right team working with you. When my previous consulting company was charging me outrageous prices and failing to deliver time and time again, I turned to Celebrity Sites®. Since then my online campaigns have turned around 180 degrees! Its great having Celebrity Sites® on my team, helping me grow my business and my profits. Don’t wait until its too late, call them today. Trust me, you can’t afford to wait!”
- Chris Hurn, President & CEO, Mercantile Capital Corporation®
Wow, you really know what you are doing & I am impressed! CelebritySites took my dead website & literally brought it to life! I never realized what I was missing until my site was completely revamped! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Just wanted to take a minute to thank Celebrity Sites. Making that first impression of what our business is about is very important.
Celebrity Sites has done more in just a couple of months than we did in the last 6 years which was nothing because we tried different things but were just were not on track. You knew where to start and how to get there in lighting speed. You guys not only listened to our ideas but gave some great ideas. Whenever we needed to talk to you, you were right there, by email or phone – you name it, you responded. We are so excited every day to see Larry’s Big Idea take shape. The website is second to none thanks to Lindsay and is improving weekly. The ideas that Jack and Nick come up with at each meeting are awesome.
If anyone out there is considering launching their business to just the next level forget it. Get in the elevator with Celebrity Sites and they will take you to the top floor (Penthouse). Stay tuned for more!
