PostHeaderIcon Bay Area SEO Web Design

Bay Area SEO web design is keyword search for our business not our business name.

We work as professional Web marketers and consultants for your business websites. We are independent contractors who focus on small businesses who need more personal care and flexible schedules which enable us to provide just the kind of services you need in a timely manner.

Many other great graphic designers or just web designers cannot compete with us because they really know how to create great graphics only but have little ideas how to promote the website and online business using SEO and social media marketing techniques and experience required for successful business online.

Too many small businesses would rather pay heavily to visual design and neglect online marketing functional design. Great looks and visually attractive websites may get little or no traffic and lead to less return on your investment.

What is the Best CMS for SEO Web Design

From our past 8 years of experience working on our clients’ websites,  WordPress proves to be the best Web publishing system for business websites.  Most of the WordPress developers would agree with us because of so many successful WordPress websites for business.

Once again, I must say, “no, WordPress is not just for blogging, it is a great CMS (content management system) for SEO Web design.”   And we are not just doing Web design, we are doing SEO Web design. What is the difference? You know it by now.

PostHeaderIcon Facebook Scam: Two free Southwest tickets

Everybody loves freebies, and the “good news” can easily spread via social media!

But mind you, you may be trapped as a victim!  I almost fell victim by a good friend who tagged me in one of his uploaded photo of “Two Free Southwest Tickets” and I thought it was fun and tagged one of my friends and very soon realized that it was mistake. I quickly removed the tags and warned all my friends.

So for

“Facebook Security”

we need to

1) be careful of something that sounds too too good to be true (Google it to find out before we pass it on”;

2)when you find a scam, help fight it by passing the warning quickly to your friends around (especially those related to the mistake action)

3)don’t accept just any friend invitation before you at least check his/her profile. (Facebook is working hard to help users to keep real profiles, but sometimes the efforts do not work very well so some people (spammers) may have completely false profile);

4)remember you are somehow responsible for your friends too. (sometimes, your friends just accept the dangerous invitation just because you are a mutual friend of the spammer.) Let’s make our own efforts on our sites and keep Facebook a safer online community.


PostHeaderIcon Search Engine Optimization Guide

Most of the SEO job is done mainly for Google.

So why not check out the SEO guide from Google: Search Engine Optimization Starter Guide

For SEO beginners, this Google article is a must read: (huh! Google doesn’t care for their own URL keywords? The article title is actually “Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

They give “Google Webmaster Guidelines”  and “Google 101” as well as how to choose a professional SEO (the expert who does the SEO for you).  A SEO starter, Web developer, as well as a business website owner, should really benefit from this section.

PostHeaderIcon Want to Get More Traffic For Your Site?

Spammers try every way to get more traffic to their sites. They mean any kind of traffic. But usually they did most of the spamming for nothing much because the traffic needs to get targeted to be useful.

More targeted traffic means more converted visitors for your business. Google Place or Google Locals, Yahoo Local, Bing Local are all good for more targeted traffic. Adwords traffic, if they come from lower position of the paid ads area, can get you more targeted visitors because that it reduces impulsive clicks if your ads are not at the top so the searcher, with a target in mind, just want to scroll down all the way to your ads and find what he or she wants.

According to my experience, it would be great if your ads can position at # 4 to 9 in the search result pages. It takes some skill to get the right bit. It means “do not over bit for your paid advertisement”.

Other ways to improve your targeted traffic is to put ads in related Web sites, forums or blog.

PostHeaderIcon Google does not use the keywords meta tag in web ranking

In GoogleWebmasterHelp Youtube, Matt Cutts told you

Google does not use the keywords meta tag in web ranking, but should you use it?

Our answer is still ‘Yes!’. Why? Because the keywords meta tag is the standard and who knows if other search engines and directories do with the keywords meta tag. Even though Google does not use it in web ranking, but will they use it for other purposes?

Yes, we all know that Page Title, description tag, and H1, H2, H3, are important for you to get ahead of your competitors for your keywords. Let’s not be just lazy and give the keywords meta tags.

Matt says “other search engines might” use keywords meta tag and tells us pay attention to “meta description”.
