The Potential Benefits of Sharing a Website Template

Posted on Wednesday, May 16, 2012 in Great SEO Advice by

Benefits of Sharing Website TemplatesAs the old saying goes, sometimes the more you give, the more you get. This can be especially true when it comes to giving away your website designs online. At the same time, if you are involved in web development, your designs are a fundamental element in your operations – how you earn a living. Releasing a client’s design for anyone to use is normally a bad idea. In addition to the likelihood that it violates the agreement you have with that client, you might be diluting the value of their brand. When other people use it, it is no longer unique.

Nevertheless, think for a moment about all of the websites that you designed that never made it online. Perhaps one was for a startup company that ran out of funding even before they launched. Another could be an older version of one of your sites, rendered obsolete by a complete redesign. In addition, what about that WordPress blog you created to document your cross-country road trip? You spent so much time designing the template; wouldn’t it be great if other travelers could use it for their blogs? In addition to offering these templates on your own website, as we sometimes do, they can also be submitted to free website template directories.

You may be thinking, “So what? I have some templates lying around that I wouldn’t mind other people using – but why should I just give them away? How is it worth my time and energy, preparing them and submitting them to template directories?” Well, there are a few good reasons, in fact. There are also some things to keep in mind when submitting website templates.

Are There SEO Friendly Domain Names Anymore?

Posted on Friday, May 4, 2012 in Great SEO Advice by

Choosing a Domain NameDid you know it’s been a really long time since the first commercial domain name was registered. I’m too lazy to actually check Google for the exact date but I think it was symbolics.com at some point in the mid 80′s. Since whenever the first domain name was actually registered, domain names have become an important element in search engine optimization. There was a time where to rank in Google for any term, you just bought the exact domain name match. Wanted to rank for “buy ripe bananas”? Easy! Hit up your favorite register with consideration on their SOPA stance and get “buyripebananas.com”. Bam! Well, almost Bam. Go put up some really junky website with no real content, don’t follow any SEO semantic coding principles, and you’ll be selling a ton of ripe bananas as soon as your site gets crawled.

Those were the days. It was when a company like ours could charge someone a lot of money and claim we got their website ranked because we are Internet marketing ninjas. The world of Philadelphia SEO companies being able to rip off clients and exact match domain name rankings are gone. I’m not too happy about that because I’m sitting on a truck full of bananas that are getting over ripe. But I’m not that mad because I have an excellent banana bread recipe that calls for walnuts and sour cream. I also know that search engine optimization today is all about rich and relevant content.

If you are starting a business, we thought it would be a good time to remind you what’s important in 2012 after we have been attacked by Penguins and Pandas; two animals which have oddly become two of the most dangerous creatures in the world. We also thought it would be boring if we just listed 7 points so we are going to also list the complete opposite point which you should not follow. However, if you do follow the counterpoint, it will be pretty cool for us because you are going to tell us and we are going to create a part II blog on it. Good content doesn’t just fart out of us so this is a preemptive thanks to those who are brave enough to not listen to reason.
