I had a customer that last year after a few updates lost all this ranking. At the start we though it was Penguin.... or a penalty, but after looking careful we realized it was mainly the site itself rather than external factors. The site was a heavy CMS system, flooded with graphics, with very little content, zero social presence and no type...Read More

When it comes to Google updates, even small changes can have a massive effect. SEO lives and breathes by the Google algorithms, such is it’s dominance of the search market.
The last year hasn’t seen small changes though, far from it in fact. We’ve been hit by two of the biggest changes to SEO in years, first the Panda update, then the Penguin one. This goes on top of more manual penalties such as taking apart massive blog networks.
These changes are done, we are assured, to help improve Google search engine results. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don’t. But what you can be sure of, is that every time the algorithm changes, the goal posts for those using SEO have moved. Read More
Dear Mr Web Owner.
I love you I really do, I want to help you as much as you want me to help you.
But you see, I’m an SEO guy, and although SEO guys are compared with car sales man, sharks and cowboys… I’m indeed a nice guy.
That’s why I’m writing you this letter, to tell you that this is not working. May be we need to reconsider our love relationship?
We all talk recently about Google hating sites, about Google penalizing sites.. but what if is not Google, but it’s you.
What if your site sucks….. and Google has no option to NOT rank your site.
Well this week I had a new customer and the 1st step we did was to switch the site. We convert the site from an ugly frontpage site to a WordPress site, we optimize the site, we did some very soft link building and …. and … voila.
These are the results:
Holy smokes Batman… my first ever Webinar. So yes… you can now register and find all the info about the little details of the SEO Challenge, and how & what I did to take a brand new site to rank in 1st page in Google in 7 weeks.

For all you that don’t know, I’m part of a great SEO challenge . The main idea of the SEO challenge, was to rank a site for a series of keyword in front of all the users, members and friends of DNTRADE.com.au .
Well the SEO challenge has been a success and the site is now ranking for 2 extremely competitive keyword : superannuation and self managed super . So it’s all good and many people wondered .. now what…
For some weird reason (I still don’t know why) I get a subscription of NETT magazine. NETT magazine seems to be a promotional-educational-marketing packed magazine full of experts that tell you what to do Online.
Overall the content is kind of OK and I enjoy reading the magazine…. but today I read an article from Clancy Clarke that made me laugh.
After I laugh I got worried.
…Ok…. so I decided to re-launch SEO course, but to be 100% honest, the job is not even finished. I created the layout of 25 videos. 10 basic videos and 15 or so… “Advanced SEO lessons”
the reality is that I have been to busy, but I still decided to re-launch SEO course with 9 free videos for anyone to check.
So many serious people… so many SEO practitioners, so many SEO gurus… so many SEO companies calling me asking me: “How do we know if you are a real SEO professional”.
The answer is: You don’t!
May be instead let’s presume … there are no SEO practitioners… there are no SEO gurus… there are no SEO professionals…. Read More

In developing your websites, you should try and have your online strategy drive your technical implementation and not the other way around… well… at least that’s my point of view. Read More
