  • Justin from SEO Zombie has a great post on 8 Easy Steps to Get Higher Rankings in SEO [1]. While it’s much easier said than done, Justin does provide sound advice to all SEO’ers when it comes to keyword rich meta data, article submission and an internal linking strategy.
  • Are you constantly updating your site, rendering your current content yesterdays news? In today’s Whiteboard Friday, Rand discusses what to do with your old, outdated or expired content [2] and how to properly keep your links and point users to the new updated content.
  • Are you new to online marketing and need to find a great SEO company?  Check out SEOptimize for a quick list of things you should be looking at when selecting an SEO firm [3].
  • Ever given a pitch for new SEO business and ended with dazed and confused starts in your direction? Well, chances are you were focusing on how versus the why. This great post from SEO Book reminds us that it is important to focus on the business benefits of SEO [4], which any potential client can relate to, instead of how you plan to get them there.

  • Just this week Compete launched a new user-driven site [5], including a new interface, user generated tags, dynamic graphs, and custom daily digests that can be delivered straight to your email. Check it out.

  • Do you think link building [6] is tedious, intimidating, confusing, or any combination of the above? Do you need a list to help you figure it out? I do. In addition to being in fantastic list format, this post from SEOMoz has the notable advantage of also containing some cool link-building ideas and highlighting important things you need to consider when constructing a link-building strategy.

  • Way down in the SEO roots, you’ll find: people. And what they think and how they feel about you. SEO is just like the rest of life; very few can get away with not caring about the people around them and STILL find success and happiness. Whether you’re running a blog, an online forum, engaging in some other type of social media, or doing any kind of interactive marketing, you’re going to be relying on the opinions of others to support your mission . Patrick O’Keefe’s post on ProBlogger reminds us to appreciate them [7]! And to make sure they know we do.
