Back in the good old days before the internet and social media there weren’t that many places you could complain, certainly not that publicly anyway.
Do you remember the Three Billy Goats Gruff?
Depending on which story you read, these intrepid explorers risked their lives crossing a bridge which happened to house a rather hungry troll. You can read the story here if you fancy, but the long and short of it is (spoiler alert) the troll gets owned by the largest billy goat, and the three brothers spend eternity chomping on sweet, green grass.
As of early December 2011 .XXX domains have been on “general sale” and with this release many businesses have been left pondering whether or not they should be buying this version of their domain.
Alongside “SEO is dead” posts (we’ll get to them another day) the other thing I hear constantly is that SEO ruined the Internet. Their argument for this is that through the pursuit of adding keywords, gathering links and leaving web footprints, that the online environment is worse because of SEO. In reality SEO has helped the web in a lot of ways, and you don’t have to look far to find the real offenders who are damaging the Internet, with the term digital marketing being dragged through the mud in so many places.

Of those of us who watched the show we remember her as the one we all enjoyed hating. She was the show’s villain for that series. Her outrageous claims on her CV that she would do anything to get what she wanted – including her husband whom she stole from his ex-wife, did little to warm the hearts of Sir Alan Sugar or the TV audience.
Discount sites offer their service to just about any and every trade under the sun. Everyone loves a bargain, and these companies have cleverly capitalised on this; offering deals on all manner of products and services for sometimes more than a 70% reduction, while taking their slice of the pie as the middle man. But what do they really mean for your business?
This post goes live at the same time as my presentation at On The Edge Live in Bristol where I am talking about the importance of reputation and how you should be managing your brand’s reputation online.
Top brands are constantly striving for a perfect page one when people search for them by name. This means no negative reviews or bad press and complete domination in the SERPs for brand related searches. But how can this be achieved?
How confident are you that you can prevent negative mentions in the future?
This blog post will teach you how the biggest brands in the world achieve this and, more importantly, how you can do it.
You might be surprised at just how much information is indexed on Google for your name. There’s a good chance that you put some of this information online yourself, but there is also a good chance that some of it doesn’t even relate to you and is for someone else with the same name. You might even find that actually there is nothing related to you at all on Google when searching for your name and the results page is taken up by information about others with the same name.
