Custom Design for an Award Winning Maui Agent
Damien Zanolini is a well-known luxury realtor based out of Coldwell Banker in Wailea, who believes that, "you truly deserve the best from the real estate professional representing you." With that in mind, we are pleased to share the re-design of Damien's website, SellMaui.com, which is truly an extension of that belief.
The new site is easy to navigate and features our new IDX layout, which includes multiple search capabilities and features a new, fresh layout for listing pages. The Maui IDX will allow visitors to SellMaui.com to browse all real estate listings in Maui County; the listings contain geographic location, listing price, and so much more!

|Anatomy of a Facebook Business Page|
Understanding the Layout for Marketing Your Business on Facebook
|September 26, 2012|
Understanding Each Section of Your Business Page
Have you started a Business Page on Facebook?
Unlike a personal Facebook account, a Business Page is a great way to accumulate Fans that are interested in your products and/or services. Are you utilizing each section correctly? Here is a diagram of the top portion of a Facebook Business Page:
Your cover photo is the first image that can be seen when a user enters your page. Use this valuable page real estate wisely. Display a large image that is eye-catching and interesting. Keep in mind that regardless of how large your image - Facebook will display your image at 851 pixels by 315 pixels. If your photo is too small it will enlarge and blur.
Your profile picture will display at 160 pixels by 160 pixels on your profile page, layered in front of your cover image. Keep this picture clear and wordless because it will be shrunken down to 50 pixels by 50 pixels when you send out posts and converse with users online. Clear, basic logos are best from our experience.
The messaging feature is optional for business pages. We like to leave it on so that users can easily connect with us.
When you first create your account, Facebook will prompt you with business questions. Your answers will be used in your About section. A portion of that About information will be on display directly under your profile picture. Information will usually include the type of business you are, your physical address, phone number and operation hours. Think of it as a virtual business card at the top of your page.
Third Party Application Icons
A great way to customize the functionality and look of your page is with third party apps. Have a YouTube channel? Connect your account to Facebook. You run e-Newsletters with MailChimp or ConstantContact? Connect your newsletter sign up. These applications will show directly beneath your Like button and the cover images are customizable. App covers will need to be sized at 111 pixels by 74 pixels.
This section is proprietary to you. If you have a Facebook friend that is connected to this page - they will show here.
Facebook is ever-changing and they continue to update the look and feel for the layout of profile pages. What applies today, may not necessarily work tomorrow. It is always best to keep an eye and ear out for upcoming social media changes and updates. Keep up-to-date on recent changes by subscribing to this blog.

|Google Raises the Bar for Search|
Google has been making many subtle changes to the results users get when they search.
|April 13, 2012|
Google Search is the most used search engine on the World Wide Web and they are constantly working towards lowering the rank of low-quality sites and returning higher-quality sites near the top of the search results. In February 2011 Google introduced Google Panda, named after engineer Navneet Panda, to the world. Google Panda is a ranking factor that has been added to the search algorithm, it serves as a filter that identifies what Google believes to be 'low quality pages'. Basically Google Panda's purpose is to reduce spam search results. If Google Panda believes that there are too many low quality pages they will flag your site.
If you want to rank higher then it is important to create unique, high quality content that will add value to your site, diversify your traffic sources, and clear out old pages that are weak and add no value. Google Panda essentially focuses more on quality than quantity. Google has also been making many individual changes that are subtle yet important and over time can add up to a radically improved search engine.
Each month they feature a blog about the changes that they've made and how it will affect your search results. One notable feature that they discussed in their February 2012 blog are improvements to freshness; new signals have been applied that will help Google surface fresh content in their results quicker than before. Google has also launched a new system to find results from the user's city more reliably, in other words they will now be better able to detect when search results are local to the person who is searching.
We here at Meyer Computer, Inc. are constantly researching new and innovative ways to keep our Hawaii SEO and Internet marketing clients ahead of their competition. Whether it's Social Network Marketing (Facebook, Twitter, Google+), creating content (Blogs), search engine optimization, or pay-per-click advertising (Google AdWords, Facbook Ads) -- we can build the perfect marketing campaign to fit your needs. In order to do well you need more than one person campaigning your online marketing, we have an entire team dedicated to working with you. Call us today to schedule your free consultation (808) 249-0970.
