Life in Banner Elk, NC

February 5, 2013 in Uncategorized by admin

Life in Banner Elk, NC can be fun.  It can also be cold.

As snow has fallen for several days, many have come to realize the need for asset protection, as accidents have occurred on the hazardous roadways of the North Carolina Highcountry.

If you’re coming to the NC mountains, pick an easy place to find and drive to.  Pick a Banner Elk Bed and Breakfast like Banner Haven.  Located at the base of Beech Mountain Parkway, less than a mile from the stoplight in Banner Elk, it’s easy to get to in almost any weather.

Stop by or give them a call.

Advertise your Site, Service, Product, etc

May 14, 2011 in Uncategorized by admin

Join national companies like Dominos Pizza and Pizza Hutt, by advertising on Blithernet.   Many local Realtors and more are discovering Blithernet with targeted ads.  Select your state(s), city(ies), even what page to place the ad.

Jeff Richman with US Financial Funding and Mike Moulton with Bee Home Solutions are the most recent ads and you only pay the the clicks you receive.  It’s like Google Adwords but better because you can target the state, city, and category for your ad.

Blithernet is a nationwide classified ad site.  Imagine being able to advertise on craigslist every time someone went to your city and looked for houses for sale or rental property.  That’s what Blithernet offers.

While the site is new, it’s growing fast and these ads will help your SEO efforts even if they are never clicked.

It’s a win-win.  Your SEO increases, you get additional exposure and you might gain some new business.

Click rates start at $0.01 and we’d love to have more Activerain advertisers.

Keep Keyword Relevance in Mind

April 22, 2011 in Uncategorized by admin

Keeping us with news and current events can help you market your site and rank well with search engines, especially if you’re blogging and regularly updating your site content.
Anyone with a TV knows about the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.  They must also know about the nuclear disaster that occurred in the aftermath.  Google and Yahoo are no different.  They search for sites with current event information and might be looking for keywords like “nuclear disaster Japan” or “ Japanese tsunami”.

If you’re site or blog contains these words, perhaps as current events, Google will rank your site higher for having updated content and current event keywords.  Although your site may be real estate related or a classified ad site, like www.Blithernet.com, you can see how search engines will see this content and send people to you.

Now the key is conversion.

You must now convert these visitors to customers, with good content.

You can use these keywords in association with your website, on www.Blithernet.com.  All advertising is free and you can create local or nationwide posts.

Find what you need and sell what you don’t … Blithernet.

Thanks,

Finding the right keywords for your blog

April 22, 2011 in Uncategorized by admin

Find the right keywords:

“Keywords” is a deceptive term because it typically is more than one word.  The term should be Key Phrases, instead and choosing the right ones for your website can be tough.

An easy way to start the search is to check what the competition is using and there are two quick ways to find this information (www.Spyfu.com & www.adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal).  Each site will give you a quick list of keywords associated with whatever domain you enter.  This provides a great starting point and you can always make changes.

When you have selected keywords that speak to you, your website, and your business, you’re ready to start your SEO.

This doesn’t mean spending a lot of money.  In fact, most SEO is free, if you’re willing to spend a little time marketing, each day.

Blogging is important and I’ll touch more on this in upcoming posts, but you need to make sure you take the most relevant words and place them in your site.

There’s a great deal of discrepancy on the “best” practice for placing the keywords and it’s more than just creating text on your page.  You should consult with your webmaster for suggestions on placing keywords in your site code.

For those of us designing and creating our own sites, here are some hints:

1. Always use a page title
2. Always use H1 and H2 headers
3. Use the keywords in the page-text, also

This will help your site be ranked better by Google and other search engines.

Remember, the more places your link appears, the better off you are.  You can advertise in www.Blithernet.com.  This free online classified ad site is great for marketing products, services, and other websites.

Becoming better at SEO

April 22, 2011 in Uncategorized by admin

You may have seen my posts for www.Blithernet.com, the free online classified website I created for nationwide online advertising.  You are probably, like me, trying to get yourself noticed above others in a competitive business.  You’re trying to bring in new customers and becoming familiar with Search Engine Optimization is the best way.

Here are some hints:

  1. Register your website with the most popular search engine
    1. www.Google.com/webmasters/tools
    2. www.Siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com
    3. www.Webmaster.live.com
    4. Choose keywords that make since to your visitors
      1. Realtor may seem right but “real estate agent” works also
      2. Use www.Spyfu.com to see the words your competition uses
      3. Pick words and stick to them
    5. Be consistent and give it time
      1. Seeing a return from SEO marketing may take 6 months or longer
      2. Don’t give up if you it takes time
      3. Don’t cheat and take shortcuts
    6. Don’t rely on companies that promise Page #1 ranking
      1. They can do it but you will be punished for cheating
      2. When the search engines discover the cheat, they delete your site
      3. It take 6-12 months just to get relisted after being deleted

I hope you’ll tune into to my upcoming posts for some additional information and remember you can always advertise for free on www.Blithernet.com, local, regional, national.  Best of all … it’s free to post and free to search.

Find what you need and sell what you don’t.

Thanks,
Greg Gardner
