Top 10 Search Engine Optimization Tips

SEO Tip #1: Find the Best Keywords
It would be a waste of your time to optimize your website for keywords that are not even being searched for. Even if you do get top placement for a broad keyword that isn't what most users are looking for, Google will calculate the number of times users did not select your listing, and the number of times they returned to the search results to choose a different website. Trying to beat this calculation is futile and more often then not, just a huge waste of time and energy.

SEO Tip #2: Discover What Your Competitors are Doing
It's a fact and one of my Top 10 SEO Tips, that search engines analyze incoming links to your website as part of their ranking criteria. Knowing how many incoming links your competitors have, will give you a fantastic edge. Of course, you still have to discover your competitors before you can analyze them.

SEO Tip #3: Write Very Linkable & Sharable Content
An article is not a sexy thing to look at here in today's online marketing world. Generic content can't be slapped together and thrown online with the hope that it will get high ranking for the life of that page of content.

SEO Tip #4: Optimize Your Title and Meta Tags
HTML titles and meta tags should be different on every page of your website if you wish for most search engines to store and list them in the search results. Us SEO Expert's have experimented with these two pieces of code to help us reach an accepted conclusion about how best to use them and what happens when you optimize them.

The meta "keywords" tag won't be discussed in to much detail here, since Google has announced that they do not use the meta keywords tag in their ranking criteria. Because Google has 64 percent market share in search, that should be enough to convince you to not spend a lot of time on this attribute.

SEO Tip #5: Optimizing Your Headings and Subheadings
In college and some high schools, essays are written using a standard guideline created by the Modern Language Association (MLA). These guidelines included how to write you cover page, title, paragraphs, how to cite references, etc. On the Web, we follow the W3C's guidelines as well as commonly accepted "best practices" for organizing a web page (page structure).

Headings play an important role in organizing information, so be sure to include ONLY ONE H1 tag when assembling your page, and optionally using one or more subheading (H2-H6).

SEO Tip #6: Use Title and ALT Attributes
Using the title attribute is a direct method of telling the search engines and the user more information about where a link will take them if they click through it. It's also a W3C standard for making your page accessible to those who are visually impared. In other words, blind folks can navigate through your website using a special browser that reads title and ALT attributes.

SEO Tip #7: Optimizing File Nomenclatures
Whenever possible, you should save your images, media, and web pages with the keywords in the file names. For example, if your keyword phrase is "golf putters" you'll want to save the images used on that page as golf-putters-01.jpg or golf_putters_01.jpg (either will work). It's not confirmed, but many SEO's have experienced improvement in ranking by renaming images and media. You also may receive visits from Google Images and other media search queries.

SEO Tip #8: Tell the Search Engines What to Index
It may take a lot of heat from the other SEO's out there for this one, especially because Google and other search engines have already helped reduce the amount of duplicate content indexed. However, when doing enough search queries that begin with "site:" to know that duplicate content is still a major issue. Worse, we get to see a lot of files showing up in the indexes that should be hidden from the world (case in study: all the free PDF's you're probably still downloading from SEO Tip #7).

SEO Tip #9: Feed Search Engines Static and XML Site Maps
Optimizing Your Static Site Map

PageRank is relative and shared throughout a website by a unique voting system created by Google. I could spend two days trying to explain how PageRank™ works, but what it comes down to is having efficient navigation throughout your site. That where a site map page comes in. Since every page on the website will be linked to the site map, it allows webcrawlers (and users) to quickly and easily find content. This SEO tip is one of my favorite of top 10 SEO tips.

It used to take 4 clicks to get to a product page at By creating a site map, users and search engines can now access any page on the site with only two clicks. The PageRank from these deep pages went from 0 to 2 in about 3 months and the ranking went from virtually not existent to #1 almost across the board for nearly 2,000 pages on their site.

SEO Tip #10: Use Checklists and Validators
There are several ways to validate the accuracy of your website's source code. The four most important, in my opinion, are validating your search engine optimization, HTML, CSS and insuring that you have no broken links or images.

Start by analyzing broken links. One of the W3C's Top 10 SEO Tips would be for you to use their tool to validate links. If you have a lot of links on your website, this could take awhile, so I recommend trying Xenu's Link Sleuth, which you can find on our SEO Software page.

Next, revisit the W3C to analyze HTML and CSS. Here is a link to the W3C's HTML Validation Tool and to their CSS Validation Tool. A new, unbelievable tool just came out that does much better than some of these older ones, and that is the Qualidator Site Analyzer tool, which you can also find listed in our SEO Software page.

The final step in the last of my Top 10 SEO Tips is to validate your search engine optimization. Without having to purchase software, the best online tool I know of for this (now) is my own SEO Audit List, which contains website-level SEO validation, webpage-level SEO structure and keyword optimization, and off-page SEO strategies you should have in your arsenal. You can also use and other online tools. However, they aren't as inclusive (yet) as my Audit Checklist.

Top 10 Things To Do Before You Die

If you knew when the bells would toll for thee... what would you do? How would you behave? What are some of the things that everyone would love to do, but refrain from because they're either bad or just plain ugly? Well, I'm sure you can think of so many things that you would do if you were living on borrowed time...


10. Spend Time With Family
Spend as much time with the folks, siblings, spouse, and children as possible, every moment is precious and you should capitalize on the opportunity. Ever wondered where your long lost sibling went? What about your biological parents? Why not try to seek out your family tree?

9. Travel Around The World
Visit the 7 Wonders of the World, travel to every continent once, climb Mount Everest, live the Mardi Gras experience, blow all your money at Las Vegas, see the sunrise from Easter Island, get on Survivor or better yet, give in to Temptation on your favorite Island . For some real soul-searching, live alone for a while atop a mountain.

8. Tie Up All Loose Ends
Revenge, sweet revenge. Whether you wish to tell off your ex, shout at your boss for firing you, or intend on getting back at the dude who stole your girlfriend in sixth grade, do what you must because if you thought regret was bad in life, it only gets worse in eternity. Tell the person you hate the most in the world what you really think of them, but by the token, let everyone you love know that you love them. Apologize to everyone you should apologize to before it's too late and tell everyone you've hurt that you're sorry... or not.

7. Give Back
Volunteer, help, give; be unselfish. Do something truly good and genuinely selfless that will never disappear from earth: plant a tree, start a charity fund, rescue whales. At least you will be remembered positively when you leave this world, but more importantly, your legacy will live on.

6. Live your dreams
Whatever it is, whatever it will take, just do it because no one will question why you did it -- only you will be left wondering why if you don't. Whether you wish to party until you drop or celebrate life's offerings, just do it and do not look back


5. Become A Millionaire
Make a million dollars the old way by printing it, or better yet, break a sweat for it in order to truly appreciate it. Blow some of it away, give most away to charity -- just leave some for the will. Take a page out of Robin Hood's book: challenge banks, governments and the rich to match your contribution, hey, it's for a good cause after all.

4. Use Your Power
Always wanted to abuse your power? Fire someone, tell others off, be the jerk that you have seen others be but never dared to be. Stoop down to their level for once and don't think twice about it. Let others shake in their boots when they hear you coming.

3. Find Yourself An Enemy
It's showdown time. Have you ever wanted to show others what you could accomplish when your back was against the wall? Don't you wish that you lived in Ancient Times just so you could give your nemesis a shellacking ? Unleash your fury and instill the fear of a lifetime into those that dare stand in your way and doubt what you can do.


2. Live With No Shame
Put Dionysus, the Greek god of lust and debauchery to shame. Have a threesome or two, beat Wilt Chamberlain's record (you know which one I'm talking about), and move from country to country to be with different women. Have sex in public and don't give a second thought to the repercussions. Get to celebrate the New Year like only you can.

1. Push The Envelope
Have a bullfight dressed in red, then go swimming with a Great White shark after you marinate yourself in steak juice. If you are still alive after that, go bungee jumping, enjoy a helicopter ride, fly a plane, and then parachute out of one... but leave the parachute at home...

CRATE TRAINING - let you puppy sleep in a closed crate - this is the best way to do potty training

Teach your dog basic commands (sit, stay, come, LEAVE IT - that means NO). Show them how it is done, and use lots and lots and lots of repetition and positive reinforcement (give snacks to a dog when they do something right)

Socialization rule - regularly let your dog interact with other dogs

Do not allow your dog on chairs, couches, bed, etc (to establish their rank)

5 minute rule: when you come home ignore dog for 5 minutes (establishes that you are the alpha dog)

Take dog on 2 walks per day, give playtime, plenty of exercise (our dog loves to play tug-of-war with a rope)

SCOLDING RULE - only scold a dog if you catch them in the act of doing something bad, but never later (because they forgot it already and won't understand why you are mad)

Never hit your dog! If a dog misbehaves (a) scream at them LOUDLY (they don't like that) and (b) grab their fur with both hands on either side of the neck and shake them while screaming

Time out rule - if a dog is caught being bad put them in their crate or lock them out and DO NOT ENGAGE THEM for at least 10 minutes - then go back and be nice again

Let your dog sleep near where you sleep - inside NOT outside - but not on your bed

12 Tips for Making Long Distance Relationships Work

Long distance relationships are not for the faint of heart. Just like any proximal relationship, they require dedication, communication, patience, trust, and of course, compatibility. If you’re about to be deployed, move off to college, or have met someone online and are willing to put work into a long distance relationship, here are 12 tips to give it every chance to thrive.

Talk about it beforehand. Ask the important questions, like whether or not they’d be willing to relocate if the relationship grows more serious. Although it may seem awkward, it’s best to also set the ground rules for whether or not you’ll be dating exclusively.

Make a goal. What do you want out of the relationship? Having goals in mind for the relationship will help steer you in the right direction, and will help your LDR succeed.

Maintain contact. This is extremely important! Call or Skype one another at least every two days, and feel free to text, email, and tweet to fill the voids. Especially take advantage of video chat, too.

Do things together. It may sounds strange, since you’re so far apart, but these days you can plan to have virtual dates to maintain closeness. Think about watching a movie together on Netflix or play a game online. Loving From a Distance has an awesome list of 99 activities and ideas for LDR couples.

Don’t be controlling. This will just drive your partner away. Being in a long distance relationship requires extreme trust, and it can take time to build.

Talk about the future. This is someone similar to creating goals together, but maintaining that momentum while you’re apart. Talking about the future will push you forward.

Visit. Visit one another at least every 6 weeks if you can — every situation is different. Skype and video chat can maintain things for so long — until someone can manage to integrate touch and smell into tech, in-person visits will have to do.

Be trusting. Again, it takes a lot of trust to maintain a successful LDR. You’ll both be leading separate lives while you’re apart, and you may start hearing about some of your partner’s new friends — don’t be overly paranoid and suspicious. Do keep your eyes open, but don’t be naive.

Care packages. Send your partner a care package while they’re away to show that you’re thinking of them. It could be as simple as a letter with photos or their favorite candy. You should also send them away with some kind of object that reminds them of you, like a shirt — smell is a powerful sense that triggers memories.

Spice it up. Long distance relationships can go bland quickly, so be sure to spice things up when you can. When you visit, consider meeting halfway, so you can both get away from your daily grind. Instead of the usual methods of communication, consider something like a handwritten letter or sending flowers.

Be positive. Have hope! Don’t focus on the negative aspects of your long distance relationship, because, let’s face it: They’re not always fun. It’ll make things worse. Use the time apart to grow personally — explore your hobbies and and interests. Exude positive energy to keep your partner’s spirits up, too.

Be there. Not literally of course, but be there emotionally for your partner. This is a big part of what makes a long distance relationship work. Ask them how their day was, listen to their concerns, and just keep lines of communication open! You’re not in close proximity physically, so you have to make up for that.

10 Tips to Prevent Bad Breath

Remember the old saying "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." It perfectly applies to bad breath. If you don't take appropriate steps to prevent bad breath in its early stage, you're making your life harder.

1. Drink plenty of water

Yes, it's as simple as that. Do you know what causes bad breath? It's the anaerobic bacteria that break down protein and sugar into volatile sulphur compounds (VSCs) to create foul smell. Anaerobic bacteria thrive on dry conditions. By drinking water frequently, you create a bitter environment for these bacteria.

Furthermore, water dilutes the concentration of VSCs. Consequently, the odour coming from your mouth may not be strong enough to be offensive. So take a bottle of spring water wherever you go.

2. Maintain a good oral hygiene

Ok, I honestly apologize if you have bad breath, despite having an excellent oral hygiene. It's a myth that good oral hygiene alone eliminates bad breath.

However, good hygiene helps for sure. If you don't brush and floss two times a day, you should immediately start doing so. In addition, you need to clean your tongue using a brush or tongue scraper. Anaerobic bacteria live on the back of your tongue. A clean pink tongue makes the conditions unattractive for these bacteria.

3. Treat existing oral diseases

Your bad breath may be caused by existing oral diseases such as gum disease and candida infection. If this is the case, you need to go see your dentist as soon as possible.

Although in my own experience dentists are a little of help in treating halitosis, they could treat common oral diseases more effectively. Furthermore, you should also make sure that any dental work such as mercury fillings doesn't negatively affect your oral health.

4. Avoid commercial mouthwashes

Here you go, you didn't expect this. But this is essential. Many commercial mouthwashes contain large amount of alcohol. Alcohol leads to dry mouth.

Dry mouth is a perfect condition for anaerobic bacteria to manufacture VSCs-- not to mention bad breath. In addition to alcohol, most commercial mouthwashes contain unnecessary ingredients such as flavour and colour to make them attractive to general public. This is why you see the same mouthwash in four different colours.

After all, constant use of such mouthwashes could lead to chronic bad breath, a condition that is much harder to treat. Moreover, commercial mouthwashes have some other potential health hazards.

5. Use natural antibiotics

Nature provides us its own antibiotics through herbs. Many herbs have antibiotics characteristics. Fresh parsley, and aloe vera are effective in preventing bad breath.

Chew fresh parsley whenever you can; it doesn't only detoxify your mouth but it also contains abundant chlorophyll which sweetens your breath. Furthermore, the chewing act increases the flow of saliva that helps avoid dry mouth.

Make your own mouthwash using aloe vera juice. Buy diluted aloe vera juice in your local pharmacy or herbal store. Add two teaspoons of it to a tumbler of water. Then gaggle your mouth with this solution.

6. Eat crisp fruits and vegetables

By eating crisp fruits and vegetables such as apple, celery, cucumber and carrot, your mouth is naturally cleaned. Plaque and food particles between your teeth and gums are removed during this process. I call this "auto-floss."

Furthermore, you also increase your saliva flow when you eat crisp food. After all, above mentioned fruits and vegetable are good for your health and should be included in your regular diet.

7. Make your own toothpaste

As in mouthwashes, commercial toothpastes contain unnecessary ingredients that may negatively affect your overall oral health.

You know that a mixture of baking soda and salt was used as toothpaste long before even commercial toothpastes were invented. It still works, only better than many toothpastes you see in stores. Baking soda helps prevent bad breath by neutralizing acids that aid the break down of VSCs--the culprit behind halitosis.

Ok, I hear you asking "How do I make my own toothpaste using baking soda and salt?" Well, there are only a couple of steps:

Create a mixture by mixing the baking soda and salt in 3:1 proportion.
Sprinkle this mixture on a wet toothbrush and brush your teeth as you normally do.
That's all there is to it--nothing fancy and complicated. You should see improvement in your breath in a matter of days or weeks. As a bonus, you will have whiter teeth as well as save a small fortune.

8. Switch to tea

There are many people who drink coffee instead of tea. If you're one of them, it's time to switch.

Coffee creates a thin coat in your tongue. This thin coat blocks the oxygen supply to the tongue. Hence, you make the environment perfect for anaerobic bacteria, which thrive when there is little or no oxygen. On the other hand, some research shows that tea helps prevent bad breath for some degree.

9. Chew sugarless gum

As I mentioned earlier, chewing process increases saliva flow thus making your oral environment unattractive to anaerobic bacteria. Yes, you should chew fresh parsley instead of gums, but parsley lacks the flexibility gums provide us with. It's easy to pop in a gum anywhere at any time. Note that I didn't say ANY gum.

If you have bad breath, you should not eat gums containing sugar. Sugar in most gums you eat is easily broken down into VSCs by anaerobic bacteria. For this reason, you should only use sugarless gum.

10. Find the exact cause and attack it

For a long-term benefit, you've got to find the exact cause of bad breath, and then attack the cause with a good remedy. Otherwise, you're getting nowhere. So stop blindly searching for a bad breath remedy.
