SEO Mistakes

Beware of Black Hat SEO practices! It’s easy to look at our post from last week, How Does SEO Work, and think you can easily trick search engines into making your website number one, but think again.  Google has been around for 20 years and it’s nothing new for people to try and cheat the system.

How Does SEO Work

Last week we talked about what is SEO or Search Engine Optimization, now lets look at how SEO works.  Today’s post will discuss how SEO’s or SEM’s (search engine marketers) can improve your search engine rankings. What does Google want to see? A Quality Website Make sure that your website loads quickly and is mobile-friendly.  Since websites often show up slightly different on mobile phones than it does on desktop computers, Google crawls and indexes both versions in two different databases.  In recent years, the amount of searches made on mobile phones surpassed the amount on desktops.  Because of that, Google announced that the mobile phone index database would outweigh the desktop version.  Learn more about this from our previous … Read More

Branding Your Business

What is branding? Every company, whether they sell products or services, has the ability to create their brand, also seen as the personality of the company. When branding your business you can mold your story into something that consumers will seek out and value, or you can ignore it and have it molded for you – potentially without being able to break out of that stigma. Why Brand? Branding your company gives you a chance to tell a story, let people know who you are, how you can help them and why you might be the best person/company for the job. It gives you a change to stand out. For example, there are many motorcycle companies out there, yet, Harley-Davidson(R) … Read More

This week I will be celebrating my 32nd birthday, and it just so happens that I share a birthday with none other than The Terminator himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger. So it only seemed fitting that this weeks post would revolve around his autobiography “Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story.” I admit, I was a bit unsure when someone recommended this book to me. What could an Austrian action star really have to teach me? But as it turns out, quite a bit – especially when it comes to the true definition of grit. At 15 years old Arnold found his idol Reg Park, a world-famous bodybuilder turned actor. The scrawny teenager (hard to believe the Terminator was ever scrawny) then … Read More

Build Your #GRIT, It Pays To Be A Loser

Amber KesslerLeadershipLeave a Comment

How well would you say that you handle losing? My entire life I have always picked up skills pretty quickly and have been naturally pretty decent at anything I tried my hand at.  I always excelled at new sports quickly and I very rarely ever came across a problem I couldn’t find a solution to.  That seems all well and good, but I’ve come to realize that this had actually made me mentally weak. I have very little grit.  I came to realize this when I was playing my umpteenth round of racket ball against my now-husband, not wanting to leave until I won a match.  He had just taught me the game a couple weeks prior to this showdown … Read More

Amber KesslerWeb DesignLeave a Comment

For a couple years now the amount of mobile searches have vastly outnumbered the amount of desktop searches being made.  Knowing this would continue to be the trend, Google announced in 2016 that it was experimenting with “mobile first indexing”. This past December they gave a brief update on this experiment and where it’s headed. Below is a snippet of the latest announcement from Google: “Currently our crawling, indexing, and ranking systems typically look at the desktop version of a page’s content, which may cause issues for mobile searchers when that version is vastly different from the mobile version. Mobile-first indexing means that we’ll use the mobile version of the content for indexing and ranking, to better help our – … Read More
