Two in Two: SEO

The Number Two (2)
Two things about SEO -
1. It’s in the details.
2. It’s not being lazy and taking the time to add (and remember) the finishing details.

Two examples:
1. When you blog about something and you can embed your example, vs. screenshot (i.e. a tweet or instagram photo) use the embed function.
2. When you are hosting an event and use eventbrite.com, remember to change your url from the default assigned event number to something that contains your brand name and perhaps the name of your sponsor.

That’s my two things for this week, with two examples in two minutes.

Chapter 1: I walk down the street…

Chapter 1: I walk down the street there’s a deep hole in the sidewalk. I fall in. I am lost. I am helpless. It isn’t my fault. It takes forever to find a way out.

Chapter 2: I walk down the same street. There is a whole in the sidewalk. I pretend i don’t see it. I fall in again. It’s not my fault. It takes a long time to get out.

“The hunger and…

“The hunger and thirst for knowledge, the keen delight in the chase, the good humored willingness to admit that the scent was false, the eager desire to get on with the work, the cheerful resolution to go back and begin again, the broad good sense, the unaffected modesty, the imperturbable temper, the gratitude for any little help that was given – all these will remain in my memory though I cannot paint them for others.”
