Why is Blogging important for
Blogging is a very effective way
to get backlinks. According to
best practices, the best way to
build long-term link popularity is
to offer quality content and
information that provides real
value to your reading audience.
An added benefit of the blog is
for people to discover your web
site and realize its benefit. This
increases the likelihood of them
linking to your web site
• It allows you to build quality links to your site. We link
specific keywords to your site. Any link from content rich site
is most valuable in terms of quality. Of course the content
should be related to the topic of your page/site. Any website
that operates the same target audience is very valuable. For
example if you are ‘SEO’ company, then the links from SEO
related sites will certainly create more value for your
• It allows you to generate unique, quality content that is
relevant to your company on a consistent basis. It is
important to remember that the blog is not for your product
promotion or advertisement. A blog that does so will be
considered as spam. Putting relevant and informative
information on the blog will help to push up your reputation
in the market and on the search engine. Well researched
and well written blogs are always appreciated. And these
kinds of blogs generate links for the site.
• It has the potential to draw a reading audience which can,
in turn generate interest for your site and draw traffic to your
site. A well thought-out response to a relevant blog or article
can bring not only search engines, but more importantly
other readers of the blog to your site through the link. If your
content proves interesting, you could build much more than
just a single link through your comments.
• It helps your site rank for the targeted keywords. When a
blog is SE friendly, we are able to incorporate keywords
phrases as anchor texts and regular text in the blog. It’s
important to remember to keep the keywords varied and
never let it overtake the importance of getting visitors.
Why is creating and distributing
articles important for SEO?
Article writing and content development is considered to be the major on-
page factor for SEO. This is one of the many ways to get links to your site
as well. Many websites are designed around hosting the content of others
and providing links back to them. These sites are known as ‘third party
article hosting’ sites. These sites cover a wide range of coverage and
accept articles on variety of topics.
Some of the major 3rd party sites are IdeaMarketers.com, Buzzle.com,
ebooksbytes.com, thewhir.com, amazines.com, submityourarticle.com
There are many topic specific sites are also available online. You can
potentially increase your visibility and exposure on the Internet by
submitting articles to these sites. There are many other sites available for
article submission. It also helps build links and is an integral part of
content generation, like blogging.
Why is submitting to Web
Directories important for SEO?
There are several critical properties online that you should be active in
creating links in if you want to build up your link popularity without
appearing to be a spammer. One of the most important is making sure
that you are listed in Dmoz, Google’s web directory, and other popular
web directories. (There are paid directories as well that you can consider
posting in, the most popular of those being Yahoo!). These directories are
human compiled and very well reputed online directories. Listing in these
directories is very important provided that they are listed in correct
category with a good description. Links from these two websites, among
others, are seen as validating you are the real thing.
There are several other directories than Yahoo! and Dmoz. Many
directories are industry or topic specific. Having a link from topic specific
directories can also be potentially helpful. For example, if you have a
news and entertainment site then having a link in a directory that is
focused on news and entertainment is important.
Why is submitting to Web
Directories important for SEO?
Local directories will help customers who are
doing locally-targeted searches find your
business online. It is also an important part of
link building, and another crucial property in
which to be active online.
Local directory sites like Google Local and
Yahoo local often come up on the first page of
Google for a brand name search, helping you
control the results for your brand name on
Why is writing blog reviews
important for SEO?
Blog reviews are third party reviews of your
company, service or product. Their main
purpose is to generate links and content, and
not targeted as much to actual readers. Blog
reviews are generally posted on high PR sites
so as to build links that are quality in nature.
Why is having a presence of Facebook
important for my business?
Social networking is a crucial way to interact with people who may be, or already
are interested in your company, service, product or industry.
Part of process is engaging with users. Social media marketing and optimization isn't
a passive process. When you engage with users, the absolute last thing you want to
do is blast them with advertisements or promotions through your comments.
Facebook is a place where users want to have fun, learn something new, and keep
connected. The more that you can fulfill these roles through your posts the more the
users will like, comment, and respect your information. This is often the part that
marketers struggle with the most.
One of the better rules to live by is remembering to ask questions that will entice the
users who like your social media page to respond. If you're asking questions you are
literally inviting an action that will benefit your ranking. If you're only making
statements or simply posting products you will alienate some of your users and start
seeing many more dislikes on your page.
How can I make my Facebook Business
Page as successful as possible?
You can use many of the tools that are provided for you and engage your users by hosting contests and posting
videos or pictures. Your products and services are somehow interrelated to quality of life and it's important that
you find that relationship in order to really showcase why your products and services should be part of a user's
The quality of your interaction is just as important as the frequency of your interaction. You do not have to
provide daily posts, and in some cases it's actually better not to, but you should provide regular high quality
posts. This helps to improve your overall ranking on a users page because you're engaging with them on a
When you are considering the posts, applications, and tools that will most appropriately suit your message to
your users, try to envision yourself as a user. What kinds of things attract you and what kinds of things turn you
off? What makes you stop what you're doing and comment? Why are you compelled to hit the like button or to
read a posting with great seriousness? The users' points of view are part of the overall perspective needed to
make sure that all of your postings are positive interactions with the users.
Then you need to consider what will make your page and your interaction with the users different and uniquely
high in quality. You can easily take the time to research your close competitors' social media page and see what
they are doing. Depending on their settings, you might have to friend them first, but most businesses allow full
access without this step. It's not in a business' best interest to be too selective when it comes to gaining
popularity and thus there is not much of a reason to insist that users ask for friendship first. Facebook does offer
an application directory which can help you weed through the various applications and find those that will help
you increase your uniqueness while staying relevant and inviting to your fan base.
Beyond applications and posting, your page can also remain active by doing outreach and posting additional
comments to the pages of other users. This is not to to put down the competition but rather an opportunity to
engage with the population and help them engage with you. If someone likes your page, you should be entering
into a sort of engagement.
How can I build up my Facebook
For most Facebook pages, the numbers build
over time. If you have three people liking your
page or thirty thousand people liking your page it's
important to engage in a way that respects all of
your users and entices more to join you.
Just because you are at the beginning of the
process doesn't mean that you aren't able to give
quality attention to those who have started
recognizing your page as a positive place for
Why is having Twitter presence
important for my business?
Twitter is quickly becoming the go-to website for all the
latest news and information. Twitter has over 175
million active users to date.
Twitter allows you to interact briefly with an interested
fan base, in the way of promotions, news or deals.
Posting a link there does count as link building.
Some larger businesses use Twitter as an up-to-the-
minute tool to keep their customers abreast of any
important news, like airlines that need to update flight
cancellations and delays, other schedule-oriented
Why is writing and submitting classified
ads important for SEO?
Classified ads are another important property
to tap into online.
Writing a classified ad posting it on a
classified site like Craigslist or Backpage
allows you to build links to your site and
generate keyword-rich content as well.
It can even generate some interest in your
company and draw traffic to your site.

Shopping Cart Best Practices
Shopping cart product picture should be large and clear, with zoom option
Show stock availability- if you have a save function a lot of customers will save items in the cart and return at a
Include cross-sells below unavailable products.
Avoid little icons that are difficult to interpret, like circular arrows to “recalculate” or refresh. Text links “Remove”
and “Update” are more clear.
Don't style your “Proceed to Checkout” and “Continue Shopping” links the same way. Prioritize your calls to
action with “Proceed to Checkout” more prominent.
Minimize your coupon code box. Showing a coupon box is an invitation for the customer to go deal hunting. This
not only eats at your margin by discounting the cart, but you will also be shelling out commissions to affiliates
who did not refer the sale.
There are a few ways to handle this issue:
1. Suppress the coupon box unless the customer has been referred by an email or affiliate campaign with a coupon code.
You have the choice to auto-apply the promo or show the box.
2. Re-label the field as “Voucher” or “Gift Certificate”
3. Create an inconvenient hurdle to use the code, such as log in.
Provide shipping and tax information and a total cost pre-checkout, as nobody wants to get through a sign in
page and shipping/billing form before he/she can judge whether a price is acceptable.
Move to wishlist option
Quick look cart editing
Reminding customers that they are $X away from (free shipping, free gift, etc.) could improve your items per
order and average order value.
Cross-sell/upsell- cross-sells and upsells in the cart can improve your IPO and AOV also. (This is a major
opportunity for ongoing testing – testing the number of recommendations, the type of associations, price points,
placements, interstitials etc.).
Print/save cart option
Website Design Best Practices
Center justify body of site
Clear navigational structure
Align all page elements to the edges
Stick to one color palette across site

One universal font across site
keep it simple in order to draw attention to center
eyeflow- page should be set up as such so that viewer is subconsciously drawn to
certain elements appropriately
hero pic- homepage should have a main picture that gives the overall concept of
what the site is about
horizontal navigation for services
vertical sidebar navigation for e-commerce
shadowing- sites are shifting towards a 3d effects feel
