Download Google's Official Content Guideline

Google ranks website content by algorithm and by human raters. Recently Google published the human rater rating guidelines booklet which can be downloaded at this link. Knowing what Google considers high quality content will help you in ranking high for targeted search queries. So what does it take to rank high with Google for content? Here are the highlights: 1. "Must be at the at the top of Page" Your content must be found front and center at the top of your page. You do not want a user to have to scroll down the page to get to the content that will address the searchers query. This is of great importance to Google. To Google this is as important as quality of your content. 2. The content must be E-A-T What's E-A-T? E-A-T stand for Expertise - Authoritativeness –Trustworthiness. In other words "Can you trust the source of this content?". If you're an expert in your field, make sure to advertise that fact in your content. If not, "borrow" authority by citing lots of sources and experts. 3. The content must meet a user’s expectations Google will rank pages that contain content that makes the user exclaim “This is what I wanted great I have my answer now”. On the opposite side of this spectrum content that does not meet this subjectiveness test will retain a low quality score. This a gut response tes. If you address Google’s content rating requirements as per above you will be guaranteed of a prominent result in the search engines search result. Good luck with your content optimization. Richard

6 STEPS TO GETTING YOUR ADWORDS ACCOUNT OPTIMIZED

  Anyone that  undertakes a PPC campaign via Awords inevitably  will  face the challenge of improving the account’s performance, i.e., optimizing the account. The question and fervent   wish that everyone will voice, and ponder  when starting on the quest  will be something to the effect  “how can I do this quickly and make sure that it works?” In answer, apply the following recipe and you’ll accomplish your account optimization easy, fast and effectively:   Step by Step: Step1, Login to your account and per campaign select the keywords tab, view the average campaign CTR and then sort CTR from lowest to highest. Now, pause every keyword with an impression count above 500 and a CTR below average. Similarly for any keywords with zero impressions. Step2,  Login to your account and per campaign select the keywords tab, select all broad match keywords and view the expanded keyword matches that Adwords has matched the keyword with. Now select all the root keywords that are obvious mismatches and enter them as negative keywords. Step3, Login to your account and per campaign select the keywords  and enter the view column that shows the quality score for the keyword, sort the keywords from low to high and then pause keywords with a quality score lower than 6. Step4, Login to your account and per campaign select the Ads tab per Adgroup. Now check if you have at least one text ad with automatic keyword insertion set-up, if not make sure that there is one present per Adgroup. Step5, Login to your account and per campaign select the Ads tab per Adgroup. Now check if you have at least one text ad that depicts a searcher’s need in the text headline. (example: “Looking for a copywriter?” instead of “The best copywriter”). You will come and compare results. Step6, Login to your account and per campaign select the Ads tab per Adgroup. Now check the lading page availability and the landing page that you’re currently using with your text ad. Select an alternative and direct traffic to that page. Check after 100 clicks against your current conversion rate, select the winner. and… that’s  it… you’re done. How about you do you have a favorite optimization routine of your own? Richard

A love-hate relationship with commercial template

Most front-end developers have this love / hate feeling to make own templates or themes by doing it their own way. From reviewing the design mock-ups, planning the html structure, choosing the better framework to use (optional), to integrating it with your favorite CMS (Joomla, Wordpress, Drupal, etc), website development is quite a long process. Though its not a smooth one, the end result gives a sense of fulfillment, both professionaly and personally.

The New Standard in HTML5 Animation

I've been in the industry for 10 yrs now (started doing interactive stuff as a freelance when I was 19) and I encountered every new technology when it comes to making things move on screen. Flash was the main standard back in the day when it comes to animation and you're considered as one of the "cool kids" in the industry if you know how to control this technology. The Flash technology made me pay a LOT of bills and taught me how to be a designer and an adept programmer at the same time. But as any other technology, change is inevitable and that change was accelerated by Apple's Steve Jobs - making Flash's popularity dwindle over the years.
