Friday’s SEO Site of the Week

For this week’s Site o’the Week, we’ll dip into a pretty good list of SEO tips from the folks at Search Engine Journal. Okay, we admit that we chose this one largely because of the title. Of course, they don’t really know our mothers….

Friday’s SEO Site of the Week

Goes to–ah hell. Couldn’t find one worthy.  We might be running out of quality SEO sites. If something doesn’t come to mind by next Friday, maybe we’ll have to rethink the whole bloody thing.

Friday’s SEO Site of the Week

What with all the Panda Panic and all, it seems every webmaster in the world is scrambling to get loads and loads of “quality” content to replace all the “crap” content their SEO contractors have been generating for them over the past decade or so. It’s true that a site rich in quality content should perform better than one full of dreck. However, nobody really yet knows just where that line is. It’s probably not a very bright line. And it’s probably not the sort of thing that can be generated. Or mass-produced. Or procured in any way other than the old-fashioned way: written by someone who at least kind of knows how to write.

Which begs the question: where exactly does one find these writer people?

In a Friday posting past, we mentioned the value of Craigslist in this regard. You post an ad for a “Quality Content Writer” and offer to pay them, oh, say $1 for each page of “quality content” they crank out. Who knows? Might work.

But if it doesn’t, you can always hire one of the millions of English degree graduates who are currently unemployed. Best way we know is to hook yourself up with one of the freelancer dating services.

Today’s SEO site of the week is actually 2 sites. Bonus!

Freelance.com and Elance.com. We chose both because it’s kind of hard to tell them apart. Both are full of freelance writers who would be more than happy to compete for any little content writing gig you can think up.

Just be aware: calling oneself a freelance writer does not make one a writer. Always check references and samples. Oh, and ALWAYS insist that the content they create for you belongs to you, and is uniquely written just for you.

We’ll give them a click each and one bat they can share.

Friday’s SEO Site of the Week

What’s on the collective mind of the search marketing community this week? Hey! It’s Dilbert weighing in on black-hat SEO! We name this cartoon the Friday SEO Site of the Week and let the Great Man speak for himself. (Unlike most of the rest of the web, we did not think this was a great opportunity to publish a copyrighted cartoon just because it’s sort of “news.” You’ll have to go read it at the official site.)

Dilbert and the Black Hat of SEO

We’ll give it a laughing spider.

Friday’s SEO Site of the Week

Today’s Site of Week is an interesting SEO Expert Quiz on SEOMoz. There are some surprises here for even the most experienced search marketeers. It’s a big old quiz—better reserve a half hour or so. We took it and missed a couple that seemed “no-brainer.” Think you know SEO?

TAKE THE QUIZ, IF YOU DARE

We’ll give it a giant question mark.

Friday’s SEO Site of the Week

This week, we uncovered a little mini-site inside a an old pal, SEOMoz. SEOMoz conducted a survey of SEO industry professionals, asking them what they thought the most important search ranking factors were, how they thought those factors interacted, how they stacked up importance-wise, and more stuff like that. They then took all that data, turning it into a slew of colorful charts and graphs, and made a very interesting report out of it.

We think that this is about the coolest thing we’ve seen all year.

We give it a big round of applause.
