How to break up with your Web Designer or SEO

49/365 - A Loverless Bed (Without Remission)Let’s face it. Business relationships don’t last forever. Sooner or later you are going to have to find a new Webmaster or Search Engine Consultant. The most important thing when ending a relationship is that everyone acts like the adults and professionals we all should be.

I had a conversation this week with a great example of this. A local business owner had a disagreement with his web guy. By the time it was all said and done the customer’s site ended up with a homepage saying he had been hacked. Incredible…

Of course, there can be extenuating circumstances, oftentimes financial, but there is NO excuse for leaving a client website with a broken, hacked or defaced website.

If you are breaking up with your web guy, or if you have been abused and mistreated in your previous relationship, give us a call. At e-Marketing Partner we try our best to be courteous and professional at all times, and we promise to NEVER put a hacked notification on any site.

Google fires another shot in War on SEO – Raven Tools drops ranking reports

RavenIn a surprise announcement today Raven Tools (raventools.com) announced they will stop offering ranking reports for keywords in the Google SERPS. Why are they dropping this valuable service? Google has restricted address to their Adwords API unless Raven Tools stops ‘scraping’ Google for SERPs rankings and keywords. There is a anti-scraping requirement in the Adwords API TOS that enables Google to suspend API access to tool creators that are generating rankings reports.

The response of the Raven Tools community has been mixed, with many users being forced to leave Raven Tools. Authority Labs, a competitive rank monitoring site, is seeing a windfall of traffic to their site and have posted a welcoming message on their blog.

SEO in Spanish – Using a Foreign Language for Long Tail Results

Spanish Language SignsSEO in English is common, but what many website owners have overlooked is SEO in other languages. e-Marketing Partner has been doing Spanish SEO for several years for Dr. Ben Marble, a podiatrist in Pueblo Colorado.

When Dr. Marble created his website he decided to create a large number of unique articles concerning common Foot and Ankle problems. It was only after creating these articles that we thought about foreign language SEO. Over the past several years we have been translating these articles and posting them every week or two. As a result, Dr. Marble’s site has seen thousands of visitors every week and ranks well for terms like “dolor de pantorrillas” and “bulto en el pie”. Pueblo Colorado has a large Spanish speaking population, so this strategy worked well for Dr. Marble.

If you have a product or service that is viable in a language other than English, foreign language SEO might be right for you. Contact e-Marketing Partner today for help writing content in other languages, translating content or optimizing pages for other languages.
