5 SEO Tips to Help Foreign Language Sites Improve Google Search Results
Recently I got call from a Vietnamese pastor who was concerned that his church could not be found in Google search results. He ask me to review his site and offer any advice I could.

If you would like a review all you have to do is complete this request form > Free Web Score. Turns out that the entire site was written in the Vietnamese language.

My dad said, “Just think, you are about seventy in dog years!”  He then explained that one human year is roughly the equivalent of seven dog years.

If dog years are seven to one, then web years must be about twenty to one. The internet is evolving at a dramatic pace. I recently read that the internet is doubling in size every 18...

The Web Chameleon: Staying Alive On the Web!
What Color Are You Today? Your web presence should be like a chameleon that changes color based on its surroundings. When the color of the environment changes the chameleon changes its color to match. This is a great protective strategy for staying alive. I don’t think the chameleon puts a lot of thought into changing colors, it just happens naturally. What a shame that when it comes to the web we are not able to change as easily. If you want to stay alive in the ever changing world of web you have to be committed to changing along with it. This is this very reason that so many web sites,...
