Want to take your business promotions to the next level, but don’t know where to start? Start here:

Paid Advertising

While having a good organic growth strategy is always a top priority in marketing your business online, if you want optimal visibility of your business on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. having a paid advertising strategy on Social Media is essential. As it is with virtually any other type of media, if you want people to actually see your business on your chosen platforms, you will want to dedicate a budget for paid placement. This includes everything from in stream promotion of posts, creation and promotion of ad specific content, hiring of promotional talent (eg. “influencers,”) expenses related to contests/giveaways, etc. Along with increasing your businesses visibility, social media paid advertising has the additional benefit of allowing you to target specific demographics related to your products, thereby increasing the quantity and quality of prospective customers/followers who find you via these ads.

Enhanced Interactive Posts

“Picture, picture, video, words, pict… hey what’s that!?” In today’s over saturated social feeds, eliciting a “THIS is cool!” type of reaction can be a challenge for even the hippest brands. There are however a few photo options within Facebook which you could use to spruce up your followers timelines which are not seen as often by your typical everyday follower. The most popular of these options include:

  • 360 Photos
    As the name suggests, Facebook 360 Photos enables you to present your photo(s) to users as an interactive panorama that can be explored by swiping on the image or pointing your phone in different directions. While this feature has been around for some time now, it is not widely seen due to source images needing to be of extra high resolution and specific dimensions (many newer phones / camera apps have modes to take and format photos for Facebook 360 automatically,) and therefore is still an effective attention grabber when they pop up in most user’s timelines.
  • 360 Videos
    Similar to 360 Photos, but in videos. 360 Videos allows viewers to play a video while panning the camera in any direction throughout. This feature requires a more sophisticated camera setup than your average video (typically a phone with dual or quad cameras,) but when done right can be worth the extra expense.
  • 3D Photos
    One of the newer photo features available on Facebook, 3D photos may just be the most “wow” producing effect currently available on the platform. 3D photos automatically give the viewer a sense of added depth and perspective in their photos without the need for any external peripherals (i.e. no 3D glasses required!) As 3D photos display without any prompts, they have the added benefit of gaining attention in a user’s cluttered timeline by the subtle shifting movements these photos display as they appear in the feed; causing users to do a double take and stop to engage with your 3D photo. Requirements for setting up 3D photos are a newer phone with dual cameras, with recommended requirements of a subject that can be photographed with success from a few feet away, a scene containing contrasting colors and textures and, preferably, a subject which is not too shiny, reflective, or transparent. For more information on these features and their requirements, visit the Facebook 360 official page.

Livestream Videos

Have an event coming up which you think your current and prospective customers would enjoy seeing, right now? Get them engaged by starting a livestream. All the major social media channels have some type of feature that allows you to livestream video to your followers, often times with the added benefit of additional (and free!) prompting of your followers to watch your livestream, through automated direct notifications, possible priority placement in feeds, etc. Regardless of the industry you are in, there is something of interest to your audience which you could stream to them live to increase engagement: Think ocean sunsets for those in the beachfront vacation rental industry, “how it’s made” livestreams from inside the facility that makes your physical product(s,) live “how to” demonstrations of beauty products, a live backstage stream from your client’s concert, etc. Best of all, even if you only have an older or mid-tier phone available, as long as it takes decent quality video (which covers most phones released in the last few years) you will be able to film a successful livestream.

Building links back to your website may be far from astrophysics, but it is time consuming and takes knowledge of your industry. For us, one of your top Hawaii SEO companies (wink), that means research for all the different types of businesses we’ve been hired to do Internet marketing for. For an individual company that may prove a little easier, especially over time as you warm up to the process.

Be sure to read this first if you’re just starting out: What is Link Building for SEO & The Best Strategies

The Basics of How to Build Backlinks

  • From something that answers a question to top tips, create content that is worthy of being read and shared.
  • Find the websites that would find that content interesting.
  • Woo and impress those places into linking to your site!

We continued to protect the value of authoritative and relevant links as an important ranking signal for Search. (Google on link spam)

Competitive Backlink Research

If they link to your competition, they may just link to you too! However, finding that information may be easier said than done.

As a company that has been providing Hawaii SEO services for over 20 years, finding this information out has been invaluable. We utilize some of the top tools and if you intend to create backlinks for your own business, we highly recommend you get a reliable one too — which means you gotta pay for the service. Feel free to ask us for a recommendation.

If you can’t afford it, some of the link checker services out there will give you a little sampling of competitor links that you can start off with.

Reach Out to the People You Know

You’ve most likely created many good relationships while building up your business. They already love you, so why wouldn’t they link to you? From suppliers, financial advisers or even your Hawaii web design company — as long as they’re affiliated to your business in some way, that’s a good link just waiting to happen.

Look to see if they have a testimonials page where you could leave a review along with a link back to your website or perhaps they have a resource page. Do they have a blog? If you can create some useful, relevant, and related content that could include a link or two back to you, then you both get something out of it.

Guest Post Blogging

If you can write a great blog post, think about offering that rich content to another related website. Just make sure to guest post for quality sites in your niche or this could severely backfire. If you find the right place, you’ll be positioning yourself as an authority in your industry, getting direct exposure and traffic as well as backlinks. As your Hawaii SEO professional, I say win-win-win!

Broken Link Building

As you’re learning the ins and out of SEO backlinking, you’ll come across resource or recommended website pages you would love to have you business featured on. Besides just asking them outright, perhaps think about doing them a solid and clearing out any broken dead links from their list. You’ll be helping them out and it beats begging outright.

Outdated Content

Have a good write up on a subject? Perhaps a more current “Best Of” or “Top 10”? Find a similar outdated post and see who’s linking to their content. As long as your content is obviously superior, you can kindly recommend the linking website may want reference your content instead. You’ll want to give them some good solid reasons why.

Did They Forget to Link?

Sometime articles or blogs may mention your company, but didn’t link. Reach out to them! This may be the easiest tip of them all. They are already fans of your brand. Thank them for the mention and kindly ask if they would make the unlinked mention clickable to a pertinent page on your website.

These are some of the ways on how to get more backlinks and where you can find them. In general, building backlinks as part of your overall Hawaii SEO marketing campaign is integral, but very time-consuming. That’s why it’s imperative that you zero in on those links back to your website that mean the most. If you can achieve high quality link backs it will lower the overall quantity you have to go in search of, and it will make your link building campaign much more effective. Need some assistance?

As the second month of the New Year is beginning to draw to a close, we felt like this was a good time to hit refresh and get a head start on your spring cleaning. With the advancements in technology and social platforms, it should really come to no surprise that there have been some new (and old) digital marketing trends that we suggest keeping an eye on as 2019 progresses.

Data is entering privacy mode.

From better products for consumers to better returns for businesses, both marketers and consumers agree that tailored content leads to a win-win for all parties. Analytics has been an integral part of providing that tradeoff but with the spring of 2018’s Facebook privacy debacle, consumers are demanding more ethical as well as transparent ethical data use.

While this doesn’t necessarily mean chucking audience insights out the window, it will be important moving forward to focus on keeping your customers in the loop and making information more readily available. Consumers are currently apprehensive, so taking the extra step to be open about where their information is being sourced and how exactly you are planning on using it (read: giving them better, more beneficial products) will give you a better competitive edge in the long run.

Integrate AI technology

From chatbots to voice-recognition systems, artificial intelligence (AI) has been developing well beyond the features that we have seen in the last year. And while we always recommend maintaining a balance between automation and personal touches, why not leave some of the grunt work to the technical capabilities of an AI? As a business trying to keep up with the ever-changing trends, the use of AI in a marketing campaign can lead to higher productivity and the opportunity to test out new strategies that could potentially maximize current efforts.

Tell your story

Automation is helping businesses work smart, not harder but you should actively try to build personality as a business and create a connection with your consumers. The easiest way to do so is to share the business’s story via social media. Across all platforms, social media marketing is largely taking advantage of “stories” where users can post content without the pressure of crafting a picture-perfect campaign. With options for audiences to swipe for more info, show behind the scenes, announce company news, and so much more…the possibilities are endless! And since posts only stay live for 24 hours, it makes a lot easier to gauge what your consumers engage with and quickly adjust your strategy.

If you are hoping to create a more compassionate marketing campaign this year, telling your story is one of the easiest ways to do so!

And do it live.

If a picture is worth a thousand words and video is worth millions then imagine what going live is worth! Live video broadcasts have become the norm on social networks during 2018 and are projected to only grow in popularity as we continue into this year. It is a great way to show behind the scene looks at the business’s day to day and offers a great opportunity to connect with consumers through live conversations. From Q&A interviews to webinars and product demonstrations, there is so much opportunity to share intimate moments and experiences with a mass audience.

We are only two months in and these are just a few of the top marketing trends to keep an eye on. Not sure how to take this information and translate it into a better campaign strategy? Schedule a free consultation and sit down with our digital marketing professionals to map it all out!

While backlinks are far from the main aspect of SEO, they can play a big part. Many SEO experts are apt to agree that link building is one of the hardest and most time consuming parts of their job. However, if you are able to proficiently build links of quality back to your site, it can put you ahead of your competition. Quality being the key-word.

What is Link Building?

Basically, link building is the process of gaining links from other websites to your own and has been an important part of SEO since the late 1990’s. A link to your site was not only a way the search engines initially found and crawled your website, but each link pointing to it was looked at as a vote of confidence. If another site thought yours was important enough to link to, your site must have been of some substance and was worthy of appearing in their search results.

Back in the 90’s to about 2012, there were a few more search engines to choose from, (anybody else remember AltaVista, HotBot and Ask Jeeves?) and building link popularity for your website was more of a numbers game. Whichever website had the most links won out over their competition. Link building was also fairly easy from free directories and trading links to commenting on posts and even buying a bunch of links for super cheap. Not so today!

Today, while the number of links may still be a factor, Google has made it very clear that anything construed as a link scheme would be considered a violation of their webmaster guidelines. They state that “The best way to get other sites to create high-quality, relevant links to yours is to create unique, relevant content that can naturally gain popularity in the Internet community.” So what does that mean for you? Write good content and then sit back and wait hoping against all hope that someone accidentally stumbles across your content? Absolutely not! What it really comes down to is finding those quality sites of relevance and let them know you have something they may find interesting — those are the backlinks that will make the biggest impact.

So what are the search engines like Google looking at when they’re evaluating a link?

Quality Content

It may go without saying, but having webpages worth linking to is very important. It would be near impossible to build links back to a site with low-value content so make sure that is your first focus.

Trusted Websites

When you consider that a search engines main goal is to offer results that best match the search query, it’s easy to understand why they would analyze things like link quality through metrics such as trust, spam and authority. Trustworthy website tend to only link to other trustworthy websites, while a spammy site will receive very little in the way of links pointing to them from a website with authority. You don’t want a bunch of links from spammy websites because it will drop the trust level of your site.

Area & Topic Specific

Let’s say our website is offering beach weddings on Maui. A link from a site like The Knot or a link from our favorite island wedding photographer would matter much more than a site that offers vacation rentals in Miami. That said, a link from a vacation rental on Maui would also be good for the beach wedding site also on Maui. If the linking site operates out of your local area or is related to your topic in some way, that’s the way to go!

Anchor Text

The highlighted text that links to your website is also a strong signal to the search engines. You want to have descriptive keywords that relate to your site which would also naturally be keywords you want your site ranking for. Another top tip is to change up the phrases from time-to-time. “Maui beach weddings”, “beach weddings in Maui”, “Maui weddings on the beach” or the company name would be good options for our aforementioned fictitious website. Stay away from anchor text like “click here” or “website”.

Internal Pages Count Too

Overall, the main page of your site will naturally receive the most backlinks. However, links to important internal pages is a great way to have a healthy link back campaign. For example, our beach wedding site would want to feature valuable pages like “the best beaches on Maui to get married on,” and “how to plan a destination wedding”. Not only is this linking practice good for the website, but helpful to the people searching out these more specific topics get right to the information they have been searching for.

Keep the Links Coming

If a website stops building links, their link popularity goes stagnant and slowly suffers. To the search engines, you would continue to receive links back to your website as long as it is still valid and offering fresh content that people find valuable.

Growing the link popularity for your website is critical to gaining attention and traffic. If done correctly, you should see more frequent search engine crawling, higher rankings, increased search traffic and even traffic from those quality referring websites. If you’re not seeing any change, you may need to seek out better linking sites, or look to improve your on-page SEO.

Are you, like many business owners, off to a busy start of 2019? The beginning of the new year brings new goals, new challenges, and, ideally, a new website for your business. With so much going on throughout the course of a year, many will think about, and maybe even start to plan on upgrading their business’ old website, only to let their plans get back burner-ed when other issues with their business pop up. If this sound like you and your business, it’s time to make a change and make 2019 the year you finally get that new website up and running! To get you moving in the right direction, here are some of the many reasons why you need to get your new website launched in 2019:

 

  • Your website is STILL not mobile ready / responsive
    This. This is one of, if not the biggest, reasons you need to update your website in 2019: If your website is still stuck in the stone age of desktop browsers, and does not automatically reconfigure it’s layout based on the device it is being viewed on, then you really need to upgrade your website NOW. According to recent studies, people visiting a website from a mobile browser now account for more than 50% of overall visits. Obviously, that equals quite a few potential customers you would be turning away if they are unable to visit your website easily because it’s still stuck in the 1990’s!

 

  • Speaking of the 1990’s . . .
    Did you hire someone to design your website so long ago that you don’t recall how long ago that may have been? That’s a sure sign that your website should be updated. Website design trends are very much like fashion; while you may not need to keep up with the latest look to hit the market, you do want to at least put your best foot forward and keep the look of your website classy and modern. This means freshening up your website with a new look, new design, and new features (see above about Responsive / mobile optimized designs) every so often.

 

  • Slow load times and missed opportunities
    Remember the days when you would have to wait, and wait, and wait, for a webpage to display in your browser, particularly if you were on a page with lots of images? Thanks to a wide proliferation of high speed internet access throughout the world, this problem has largely been eradicated for many of our daily browsing activities. However, to search engines like Google, an extra bit of loading time could be construed as “slow” to their algorithms – netting your website a penalty signal when it comes to ranking and displaying your site in their search engine. Too many “bad” signals and you could find it difficult to draw an audience to your business site. To fix this, there are a variety of speed optimizations which can be applied to a new website throughout the build process that you will want to take advantage of.

 

  • Easy to update, easy to use
    Are there times you would like to add a video, a photo, or maybe some new text for your website, but are unable to because it was built at a time when all updates had to be performed in code? That’s another sign it’s time to upgrade. For the average business, user updatable content via an easy to use Content Management System (CMS) is a standard feature among modern websites; oftentimes via the ubiquitous WordPress Content Management System. Even if your website has an old CMS of it’s own, newer advances and upgrades to the core WordPress experience (along with secure, managed WordPress hosting from Meyer Computer, Inc.) make it worth the time and minor expense to update your website.

 

  • SSL? HTTPS? What’s that?
    You may have noticed for some time now, a small lock icon at the top of your browser when you go to many websites. That’s a sign that the website you’re visiting has a valid SSL certificate which, in layman’s terms, means your session with the website in question is validated to be secure and trustworthy. This is especially important in parts of the website that need that extra layer of security (and the peace of mind it brings) where a user might submit their personal, banking, credit card, contact, etc. information through your website. An additional bonus: This need for security when browsing is yet another important signal that Google looks for when determining how and where to rank your website in their search engine. No SSL is a no go with Google.

 

  • Making it marketable
    Does your website still have old, depreciated meta tags, text content that doesn’t reflect your current business as best it could, or maybe numerous pages with small amounts of ignorable text thrown on there as an afterthought? As the saying goes, “Content is King” and a website without content simply will not measure up to the expectations of your visitors or your best friend, Google. When you’re redesigning your website, keep the importance of content in mind, and make sure to work with your webmaster on an online marketing and search engine optimization plan that will get potential customers to your site and keep them coming back for more!

A new year obviously means out with the old and in with the new, right? If you have been thinking about getting a head start on spring cleaning your website and marketing strategies, we suggest you take a quick moment before you start chucking popular business concepts into the past.

With an overwhelming amount of options available, it should come to no surprise that building trust is important across all industries. Brand loyalty is defined as the positive feelings towards a business that leads to repeat purchases of the same brand and is not the new kid on the block when it comes to key marketing strategies, although it is often overlooked when creating a campaign. So how can you work on integrating a brand loyal focus into your 2019 marketing strategy?

Customers are looking for community, so cultivate it.

As it turns out, customer engagement ranks actually higher than customer service in terms of what a consumer wants out of a business. Between fast responses to feedback to a platform where customers can exchange stories, engaging with your client base takes time and they appreciate it. Whether it is a hashtag community on social media or an online forum on your website, kick off 2019 by creating a place where your consumers can not only have conversations with you as a business but also with other like-minded individuals.

Everyone loves perks, make loyalty rewarding.

Loyalty programs are hardly news but before you grab the broom to sweep this one under the rug, there really is a reason that they are still a popular tactic. Yes, even in 2019! The ability to redeem extra discounts and exclusive access to products is hard for consumers to pass up. In fact, it is even expected for brands to have a reward system in some shape or form. Whether you are offering free or discounted items, you are more likely to retain your biggest fans and attract other customers to your business.

Personalize Your Communication

We talked about being personable and why you should make it a habit before but personalization is so important, we felt it bears repeating. When you stop treating your customers like strangers, you are likely to see better sales results. Whether it is learning how your customer base is communicating and catering to that or simply reaching out on life events like birthdays, making your clients feel special is a key component of brand loyalty.

The best part? All these tips are simple to carry out and can work together to create a more compassionate marketing campaign. And if you are not really sure where to start, sit down with us and our professional marketing team can help you get started with a free consultation!

‘Tis the busiest season of the year and between the remaining holiday promotions, we wanted to remind you why building trust is important for any brand. We have talked about selling versus telling your story on social media and how it can help maintain brand loyalty amongst consumers. Among the endless emails filled with flashy sales and the overwhelming amount of sponsored social ads, there is the growing feeling of being sold to. Having a more compassionate marketing campaign can help the conversation surrounding your business change from being centered on hitting sales goals to genuinely serving the customer’s needs.

So how can you leave a lasting and remarkable impression on your consumers?

Identify What Drives You

Understanding what matters most to you as a person can help clarify what you want to bring to the table as a business. Pinpointing what you want to bring to your own personal life, along with the environment and community that you are surrounded by, can paint a clear picture on how your brand can support, as well as make a difference to your target market.

Take Advantage of Opportunities to Show Compassion

Sometimes the best marketing campaign is the one that listens. From scrolling through the comments on various social media channels to more personal interactions, there are sure to be opportunities that can use a more compassionate touch. A kind comment towards a customer might seem like a simple gesture but it can affect the receiving end in ways that you might not realize.

And compassion even extends to employees! Lending a listening ear to a colleague who isn’t having a stellar day can help keep work moral up and maintain a positive brand image. Taking the time to show empathy can actually build more powerful relationships than old-school methods of professionalism.

Support Customers Beyond the Transaction

Sales are important, there is no arguing that. But aligning your resources to support efforts that your consumers hold dear can be worthwhile in the long run. A social media search can easily identify what matters to your customers and what you can do in furthering a conversation or cause.

It is important to note that support does not need to be monetary; it could simply include using your social platforms and voice to share your thoughts about issues that are valued by customers.

When you as a company take the time to show care to the customer, it tells them that they are more than just a dollar sign. These days more than ever, people are listening to their family and friends versus advertisements. Becoming a better company with a compassionate marketing campaign can position your business well in an oversaturated marketplace.

Twinkling lights lining neighborhood porches, the smell of Douglas Fir pines, and those holiday sales on top of sales – yup, it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas. With the biggest shopping days of the entire year lining up, the holiday season is an important time for small businesses. And while you have your list and we are sure you are checking it twice, there are a few things to keep on your radar as the year draws to a close.

Improving Digital Experience
Creating mobile responsive web designs is old news, however, continuing to improve upon the digital experience is going to continue to be of importance. The dominant use of smartphones and other mobile devices have made things like download speed and website security more of a necessity. Technologies like Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) and Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) will continue to make this area a hot trending topic.

People are Putting More Trust in People (and Brands) That They Know
With the consistent growth of social media and the overwhelming amount of information online, customers are putting more of their trust in both the people and the brands that they are familiar with. And in the age of ad blockers, gone are the days of traditional ads reaching their target audiences.

So what can you do to stand out against your competition?

The answer really is simple, build that trust and build it through creative marketing. From small business to large corporation and the new companies popping up in between, the secret ingredient to creating brand loyalty lies with the understanding that building trust is important. In the upcoming year, you are likely to see a rise in content marketing, influencer marketing, and referral partnerships along with social media marketing methods that provide actual value to the end user.

Helpfulness and Authenticity Versus Technology and Automation
Time leverage is everything when running a successful business, so it comes to no surprise that marketing automation and technology is going to advance to help us work smarter. And while we are all looking for ways to operate more efficiently, our consumer markets are looking for that personal touch. Finding that balance is going to be key to leveling your business above the competition in 2019!

As 2018 starts to wind down and you start prepping your marketing strategy for the new year, we suggest keeping these top trends in mind. Certain things might not be the best fit for your business but preparing for these up and coming marketing concepts could set you up for a great kick off heading into 2019! And if you are feeling overwhelmed with all these holiday to-dos or you are just not sure where to start, our Maui marketing team are here to help.

After reading that title you’re probably wondering what a blog post and your Thanksgiving turkey could possibly have in common. Actually, properly roasting and tending to your turkey can be a lot like creating a great new and engaging blog that has guests showing up to joyfully consume your content. Follow these fun holiday themed tips to wine and dine, not only the search engines, but your blog visitors alike.

Fresh Free-Range Turkey
The turkey represents fresh content and the meat of the matter (pun intended). Search engines are always on the lookout for new and engaging content to provide their users. If your website blog can’t deliver, and you are basically offering dry old leftovers, nobody’s going to be interested in your stale content and you’re going to have a quiet and lonely Thanksgiving.

Organic, kosher, natural, heritage, pre-brined… What should you pick?
If you’re not sure what to write about, think about who your target audience is. Are there questions that you’re asked on a regular basis that you could post about? Go right to the source and ask your customers or clients want they would find interesting. Write how-to’s and tips. Think about interviewing someone in your field. What is your competition blogging about? There are tons of ideas out there to be found!

Size Matters
You better have enough turkey to go around! Readers and especially search engines prefer a meatier piece to make clicking through worth their while. The longer the better. At a minimum, 300 words is okay, but 500 is even better.

Longer blog posts will naturally be more detailed and better likely to answer the reader’s questions. This doesn’t mean you can’t feature shorter pieces or that you should ramble on to meet a word count. Just that, when you can, go for that large 24 lb. turkey.

Preparation
From removing the giblets, drying, and rubbing with butter… there is key preparation that needs to be taken into account. Same goes for putting your blog post together. Now that you have a topic, ask yourself, what is the purpose of the piece? What do you want your blog post to achieve? Gather all those great ideas in a clear and concise way to best get across your information. Come up with a structure that makes sense and has a good flow.

Seasoning
Be sure to salt and pepper in strategic keywords throughout the content. Having the right words represented is an essential element of search engine optimization (SEO). Without them, the failure to be found in the search results is assured. Think about using important keywords in headers and alt tags when it makes sense.

Baste That Bird
Just like a tasty turkey, you can’t rush a good blog post. You wouldn’t come home from the store and toss a turkey directly into the oven. If you push out a blog without basting you’re going to end up with dry and burnt information that no one will want to consume. Re-read it several times and see if you can get others to read it as well. You may find things to edit or add to make a good post even better.

Turkey Thermometer
Once your turkey, I mean blog post, is complete, you will want a way to gauge how it’s doing. Are people spending the time to read the post? Check your referrals for inbound links and your social metrics. Check your traffic to get an overall understanding of how popular a post is and whether it is gaining traction over time. If certain topics are not resonating with your audience, it’s likely an indication they aren’t as important to your audience as you thought.

Presentation
Garnish your blog with images or include a short video when you can. People are very visually stimulated! Be sure to include helpful links that support your blog post whether it’s a reputable source off site, or a companion piece within your own website.

But remember, presentation is not only about the garnish, it’s about putting your best face forward. Be yourself and relatable. Let your readers get to know you. Your content is what got them there, but your voice is what will keep them there, and have them coming back for more.

Time to Eat
Don’t let your delicious content go to waste! Be sure to tell everyone you know. Post to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and anywhere else you can. Use social media to make it easier for your audience to find your blog. Friends and family count as readers too!

Leftovers
Who doesn’t love leftover turkey? In our family, you’ll find my mom in the kitchen the next day making the best turkey jook (pronounced “chook”) ever!! Which some would say, even overshadows the actual Thanksgiving Day meal… The same can be said with great past blog posts that had a lot of buzz at the time of posting. It can pay to check those stats, say a year out, and revisit them if their traction is dwindling. Perhaps do a spin-off. Same topic different bend.

Happy Thanksgiving to All
We here at Meyer Computer, Inc. want to say that we are all #SEOGreatful for our clients and followers – past, present and future. Aloha!
