What The Heck Is SEO?

what the heck is seo?Have you ever wondered: what the heck is SEO? Did you think it was just not relevant for you? Well I have news for you: Google wants to give you free traffic. Yes, free. Totally and unconditionally free. But Google wants to know a couple of things first: 1) Is your page relevant for the keyword being searched for? 2) Is your page perceived as important?

First: What The Heck Is SEO?

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization.  It is a way to tell the search engine what your page or site is about and how important your site is.  Google goes out and reads all the web pages in the world (to a point) and scrapes information from your web site’s code (i.e. HTML).  It will store your title and description, then read your page to determine what keywords it contains, or what it is about.  It comes back every so often and updates your page, so if you’re worried that you can’t improve your page for Google, think again.

The Meaning Of Success

the meaning of success - in lexington kentuckySuccess, as defined by Dictionary.com, is the achievement of wealth, position, honor, goals, or the like.  This actually sums up several definitions in one.  Many people think of success and being financially wealthy, or at least having the appearance of wealth.  But can a less fortunate person be successful?  Let’s dive further into the meaning of success.

Stream Of Consciousness Writing

stream of consciousness writing - Dr PepperThis blog post is all stream of consciousness writing.  The house is quiet.  Everyone gets to play except for me because I have to write a blog post.  Luckily I am finishing up with a client today so I am only monitoring them, checking my email every once in a while. You would think that writing a new blog post with all the time in the world would be easy.  But no.

So I am just doing my stream of consciousness writing hoping that a subject will come out.  I know I have been working hard on my experiments this week.  I completed some PDF training that I had been working on.  It is for sale, we will see if sales occur.

New Capture Page

I created a capture page about a month ago, along with a 12 unit email course, to come up with a new strategy.  Ultimately I have no idea where this strategy will go but it looks promising right now.  So I have been writing, just not for the blog.  And I have to tell you, I am a little burned out and ready for a break.  But I have no post for next week, so writing.

How To Write A Blog Post

how to write a blog post - wine and captionsThis is how to write a blog post, according to me: First I start with stream of consciousness writing and see where that leads me, I ultimately make sure I have enough words, I edit my blog post several times, I come up with 2 or 3 links to other blog posts that have their own information, and then I try to find a picture that relates, usually a picture I have taken or one of my family after I get their permission.

Stream of Consciousness Writing

How do I describe what stream of consciousness writing is?  Well, I just write stuff.  Good or bad, right or wrong, I just put down my thoughts as I think them.  Often the best writing is done as you think of stuff, and if not you will edit later.  Write and write and write, if you think about flying a kite, write about flying a kite.  If the weather is good and you wish you were outside, write about it.  Get those flying thoughts down.

How To Avoid The Spin

avoid the spin - que sera, seraSometimes online marketing is like gambling.  No matter what you do you cannot get ahead.  Get some activity and you are looking for more.  Not getting enough activity makes you fearful.  This is similar to winning and losing at gambling.  Win and you want to go back and gamble your winnings.  Lose and you think you are due a win. Either way you go back and try again.  This is a spin.  Doing the same thing over and over, when it really makes no sense.  How do we avoid the spin?

Good question… but there is hope.  Consider what you do that is productive and what you do that is not productive.  Going into Google Analytics 6 times a day is not productive.  Posting your link on a new website is.  Looking for a new lead every 10 minutes is not productive.  Writing a new blog post is.  Do you see the difference?

The Advertising Onion – An Explanation

advertising onion - cubs and state farmThe advertising onion is something I just made up.  But it can be so true.  Advertising is like an onion.  Either you only make use of the surface, or you make use of additional layers.

For instance, Goodyear can advertise the features and benefits of their tire, or they can advertise how their tire works on the newest Corvette.  Perhaps they can talk Chevrolet into co-paying the advertisement so that each pays for half.  So Goodyear just spent half the amount on the ad to get the full benefit, perhaps even more than they would normally get.

In the above example, Goodyear also gets more benefit from the advertisement because they show it working on the new Corvette. It shows the product demonstrated in an exciting way rather than just showing a tire and describing its benefits.

What Is Independence?

what is independenceIndependence is “freedom from the control, influence, support, aid, or the like, of others” (from Dictionary.com).  So independence is freedom from something. Children become independent when they are no longer under their parents’ control or funding.  You may be independent from a boss when you start your own business.  But the ultimate independence is when you answer to no one and you are financially capable of supporting yourself with no help at all.  So what is independence?  It is your next step to being capable without the help of others.

Having a Job and a Place of Your Own

Your first independence is when you get your first job or jobs and you are able to move out and have a place of your own.  This is independence from your parents.  You will be of legal age to be on your own and you will no longer need to take money from mom and dad, at least not on a regular basis.  At this point you are still dependent on your job for an income but you are able to make a lot of your own decisions – live where you want, date who you want, not date, possibly have a few drinks, or do what you want when you want… except when that interferes with your job.

You Already Have Abundance

abundance - of snow - elgin, il

Do you want to abandon snow?

You have a goal for the way things should be in your life.  Perhaps financial.  Unless you believe you already have financial abundance, you will never have it.  Because the truth of the matter is, you are already being taken care of very well.  How do I know? Somehow you have internet access so that you can read this.

Our problem often is, we want things we think are beyond our reach. Things that money can buy, more money than we have available today.  So how do we get the money or things we want? The first step in the process is being grateful for what we already have.

Be Grateful For Your Current Abundance

Take a look around you.  Are you able to eat, shelter, and clothe yourself?  Be grateful for all that you have!  Detail the things you have that you are grateful for and put them onto paper.  Thank God for all you have.  Feel the joy of knowing you have plenty of abundance right now.  Of course you want more, we all do, but how are you ever going to be satisfied with things if you cannot be happy with what you have now?
