The internet by nature is a fast growing medium. It’s been rapidly evolving ever since it was first conceived. So it shouldn’t surprise anyone that a relatively young industry such as SEO is also in a constant state of evolution.
SEO constantly evolves– it has been a hot topic in the industry for a while, with SEOMoz adopting the term “inbound marketing” and creating Inbound.org, combined with rumours that will be dropping SEO from their brand, becoming simply Moz. All this hype from certain thought leaders (no names mentioned) have spread like a virus among the industry.
I’ve put together a quick list of SEO tools, blogs and resources that I’ve recently stumbled upon and wanted to share. Whilst there are bigger, more established sources out there, it’s sometimes easy to overlook the newer, smaller varieties. So this is a nod in the direction of a few resources that you may not have discovered just yet. However, if you have any others that you wish to add, please feel free to include these in the comments at the bottom of the page. Read more
Mozilla, the creators of Firefox now work to a ‘rapid release process’, meaning you need to get used to seeing a new release every 6 weeks. Most incremental updates to a program result in the version number increasing – from version 3.1 to 3.2 or 3.22 say for example. For Firefox each of the new rapid releases gets a whole number update, so you’ll likely be using version 20 in Q1 2013.

Being a good SEO is about more than knowing your stuff back to front when it comes to optimisation. It’s also about the way you work. It’s the attitude and traits you have that can make you stand out in this fast growing industry.
This post talks about five of the key traits I think make a good SEO stand out from the crowd.
In my last post I went through a list of 28 top link building resources, if followed correctly and with a bit of creativity you shouldn’t have any problems with search engines while your rankings continuously improve.
However, as I mentioned in the previous article, some people still believe all links are good links – quantity over quality. This kind of attitude not only negatively affects your rankings, but in extreme cases can actually get you de-indexed completely from search engines.
Many Webmasters and SEOs think they know all they need to know about on-page SEO, but when was the last time they reviewed their site structure? Is on-page SEO more important than ever now in light of updates such as Panda? Solid on-page structure is a pre-requisite for a strong SEO campaign. Check that your website structure is performing optimally for you. Read more
In the fast paced world of SEO, rankings are constantly fluctuating. This is part and parcel of search engine optimisation. However, if your rankings have dropped dramatically there may be a more serious issue. As we all know time is money and the longer your rankings stay hidden on page 2,3,4 of the SERPs the more money you can potentially lose. Read more
There are a lot of discussions around just HOW important link building is, such as, what are we going to do if/when Google changes their ranking algorithm and devalues links? The truth of the matter is, incoming links will continue to be an important factor in how search engines rank websites, it’s the bedrock of the internet as it stands today, and it connects everything to everything else.

Having the ability to accurately track your website’s keyword rankings within Google and other search engines is an intrinsic part of any good SEO campaign. Not only does this provide you with indicators of where you need to spend your time and on what keywords, but it provides transparency to the client. However, monitoring rankings manually is both tedious and time consuming, so a tool is needed to do this for you.
