    Many people running search campaigns for ecommerce websites can often get too caught up in gaining new traffic via standard organic listings as well as product aggregators (i.e. Google Product Search), meaning they miss out on a high-potential stream: image search.

    It’s common place for every ecommerce store to show product images, as people need these to make buying decisions, but this should be taken a step further to cater for the people who are actually shopping (or at least doing research) via image searches.

    Despite any recent recent rants you may have seen about how [easyazon-link asin=”0672330652″ locale=”us”]blogging[/easyazon-link] is dead or blogs are passé, the fact of the matter is that business blogging is now more important than ever. With Google’s most recent Panda algorithm updates, attributes like content freshness and social signals (strengths of blogs, not corporate websites) will gain increased importance in search ranking.

    But as the blogosphere continues to expand (as noted by Diana Adams below), it becomes more difficult to stand out and be heard above the noise. How can a company launch (or relaunch) a new blog properly? Write great blog post headlines? Promote new content most effectively? Optimize blog content for search? Emulate the best corporate blogs? Take advantage of free or low-cost blog tools and resources?

    Get the answers to those questions and more here in two dozen of the best blogging guides of the past year.

  • Simple Blogging Tips: Do you have an “About Me” page?
    Written by Comments Off on Simple Blogging Tips: Do you have an “About Me” page?
    Last Updated: January 15, 2012

    Whenever I come upon a new blog or a blog I’ve never visited before, one of the first pages I visit is the “About Me” page. It could be called anything, but it is the page about the blogger or the blog. I call mine “About Me” because I’m unimaginative but you could just as easily call it “The Blogger” or “Me, Myself and I” or “About this blog.”

    I personally believe that it is important to have this “About Me” page because it will tell the reader a little bit more about you and your blog. It is also helpful for PR and companies who may stumble on your blog and want to get to know you better before contacting you. You could keep it as long as you like, or as short as you like. You may include your photo or you may opt not to – its your choice.
