Aren’t the words SEO and fun an oxymoron?
After attending another excellent GeekGirls event I’ve decided to switch my thinking about SEO from, “Ugh! Do I have to?” to “Cool!”
SEO is simply doing things to your website copy so that your site shows up higher in search engine results on Google and Bing — the only two search engines that matter: Google is used by 65-75% of the world, and Bing is number two.
Think of this process as building your favorite puzzle!
This Is Really Cool!
Some really smart mortals hooked up special cameras to a person’s eyes, so they could see how people scan a web page.
Check out this 1-minute video called “Example of eye-tracking on Universal Search”.
Something Fun You Can Do
See how many times Google has indexed your site (or anyone’s site) by:
- entering “site:” before the website address. See image below
- Not only did I find out that Google has indexed my site 241 times,
- it appears someone else has attached themselves to my site — who is eanbarnard.com and why are is a link to their site on my Home, Product-features, and Contact Me pages?
So glad I ran this simple check: Need to contact my web host and take care of this immediately!
