I added a Free GPA Calculator Script that allows you to figure out your grade point average. Enjoy!
I read an article from Shane barnhill about his experience with a Google+ Page suspension. I did not realize many fake business pages would be popping up in Google+ and Business Brands would be Hi-jacked, that's why it is so important to verify and direct connect your Google+ page to your site as soon as possible. This was the first thing I did. I also do it for Local clients for their places page as well for local search results. Stop by and read his article above and learn from his unfortunate mistake, which Google+ quickly resolved.
I have not Purchased any packages form the +1 Builder site, I just wanted to post on it. Is it good White Hat SEO? Do you think Google may penalize for it? Do you think it is kind of like buying Link packages? Google is putting big Emphasis on the +1's in the Search results now. let me know what you think
Google Places for Business is a local search for your businesses products or services. So for example if you want to search for a Mattress store in Bullhead city Arizona, you would of course input those keywords into Google and you would get a result showing up like this Mattress Stores. When you scroll down the page notice Furniture Closeouts has a Google+ page for Businesses. When you click on the link it brings you to their Business page. These results are also place higher as your business has more directory listings, like Yelp.
The more +1's you get from Google the higher you rank for your listing, just like sharing in Facebook with the like button, Google is placing high emphases on their social network, which results in higher rankings on their search engine, where we all know, they capture most of all search traffic. Create links like I have done above to your Google Place and your Google+ Pages, it helps to rank higher!
Last but not least add a YouTube Video of your location, make sure you put descriptive text of your products and services. Next thing to do is add your address in the main text at top of the video and also in the descriptive text at the bottom. Do this for both your Google+ Pages and any other directory listing.
Well So far I'm on the first page of Google Serps for Drop Down Menu Generator Software, it looks like I'm in the 3rd and 4th position for this long keyword. What is interesting is my 4th position is from Google+ and that was posted on october 31which you can see here: Drop Down Menu Generator Software.
My social link marketing strategy seem's to be working out as I have other 1st page results like Dancing Hyperlinks and others.I use twitter daily, My blog, Facebook, Reddit, StumbleUpon, Del.icio.us, Google+, and a few High ranking forums as well as internal links on my site.
I update my blog daily with new keyword links as I have a target of 2 to 4 keywords per page ( I use these keywords on the sites I listed above) I like to focus on for instance a variation of Drop Down Menu Software etc.
To sum up my results my site is only around 3 months old, I think it is doing rather well, as My traffic is only averaging between 350-700 visitors on an average day, some days it does spike to around 1,000, but that is only if I have a good post!
You can embed Audio and Video easily with their respective element tags. This will cut down on some of the code bloat.
In terms of SEO, these new Element tags will allow the indexing of your site easily especially if you have Flash on your site, so get ready to see more results show up in the SERPS. These Element tags also work like Meta-tags, they let you describe what kind of information is on the page.
Devices that use updated browser's will not need to worry about Flash, as we all know by now Adobe is discontinuing support for Flash on mobile devices and turning their focus for the support of HTML 5 development. I included some more info here on the HTML 5 Page.
