SEO and SMM Alerts- 4/1/11 Addition

Posted by


So I thought about doing something clever for April fools But, I quickly realized that my creative juices have been used up for the week and I came up with nothing so no April fools jokes here- however if you think about it Googles +1 might have been an April fools joke released two days early

What is Googles +1- well its Googles attempt to make search results more relevant.

You can read more here ==> Googles +1

First of all, the name is dumb but even once I get past that- and although its not completely fully function yet- the tests that I ran yesterday dont excite me.

The REAL problem I see here is if my network is going to influence me because I see that a good friend of mine +1ed something the only way I am going to see that is IF I am logged into Google and IF I can connected to them via Google. Right now I only have 7 contacts according to Google clearly I have a log way to go. But am I the only one? I dont think so- we are connecting on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn and other social sites- but not Google. Googles buzz was a flop and unless they bring in your social circle from other social media sites, Im not sure how much of an impact this will have (yes, they are talking about bringing in Twitter now but even then, I think its Facebook you have to go after and I dont think that will happen). So we shall see, but at the moment- Im not excited or worried.

Next week expect your alerts to be a whole lot wiser as I turn a year older on Monday. Ok, so they wont be, but I hope you enjoy them just the same! :)

Have a great weekend and enjoy this weeks alerts!

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®

Like any vehicle, it will run smoothly if and only if 1) the right fuel is used, 2) you make it a priority to maintain it, 3) and you have a great mechanic! As a business owner, having your team in place is critical to success. I was happy with my original website; giving birth to it was a process. But after a while, as it grows so do your needs. You change or your brand changes. It was not a coincidence that I met Lindsay Dicks from Celebrity Sites; it was timecall it synchronicity at work. I had been rethinking my website and needed to delegate more of what I was choosing not to do regarding social media and web maintenance. I have never been so impressed by their professionalism, dedication or follow-through. They are there at a moments notice to work through my questions, my ideas or concerns. I give them straight A pluses. They have me for LIFE. – Sallie Felton, Life Coach/Transition Specialist, International Talk Radio Host #1 Best Selling Author, IF IM SO SMART, WHY CANT I GET RID OF THIS CLUTTER?

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! Kimberlee Frank
