Yeah, yeah, so the SEO Boy blog has only been around since October.  But that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy a little bit of the “year in review” limelight.  Right?  The last 3 months have been a blast, and in that time we’ve been able to publish some great content.  I’ve pulled the top 10 articles based on pageviews for SEO Boy’s best posts of 2008!

  • So many people use Google Analytics, but not just everyone is certified as an official consultant!  This post describes in detail the required steps for becoming a “Google Analytics Authorized Consultant [1].”
  • Back in November Google announced the new SearchWiki [2] function that allows users to basically customize their search results.  The big question that followed was, “How will this affect SEO?”
  • Flash programming and SEO have been at odds for years.  Thankfully, there are some helpful tips for making Flash and SEO play nice together [3].
  • Every SEO blog needs a post that is the ultimate checklist of basic tasks.  This is SEO Boy’s top 10 SEO to-do’s [4].  Read it.  Learn it.  Love it.
  • If you can spare 10 minutes a day, you can take the time to monitor your company’s online reputaion [5].  Learn how to harness the power of blogs and social networking sites to ensure your reputation remains intact.
  • As with any process, SEO has a very discernable first-step: Keyword Research [6].  This post describes the basics of kicking your SEO campaign off the right way with effective keyword research.

  • One of the most important elements of SEO is your website’s internal linking structure [9].  This factor determines how well PageRank (or link juice) flows through your site, and how well deep content will rank in the search engines.
