We usually hear complains of how certain people handle their audience in business or how they ignore others when they meet. Consumers are always attracted by the first approach, how you talk to them, facial expression, and services offered. A person maybe needing help in an area that you are a professional in but cannot approach you due to how you treat others, the results for this is having loss in your business. Such reactions maybe caused by ones personality but they can change by putting these points in their mind.
A new feature of SERPd is our member interviews! For our second member interview we are speaking with Zarko Zivkovic a.k.a on SERPd as practicalseo.
Zarko has been a member of SERPd since our beginnings. He owns Practical SEO, an SEO company based out of Serbia. You can connect with Zarko on Twitter if you want to stay up to date on what he is doing. He was kind enough to take some time out of his busy day to sit and answer some questions from the staff of SERPd. Below is our conversation…
Lets have a look at where our valiant SEO comrades placed in the first annual SERPd Ass Kicking Contest!
Lets take a look at the rankings for each of the two key terms and then we’ll display who the top 10 competitors are overall as they sit at the time of this blog post being published. Keep in mind we are ranking based on an overall score. The formula we are using is as follows:
Keyword 1 rankings + keyword 2 ranking / 2 = Your overall score
Office space. The word sounds so nice – so friendly. Unfortunately, it can sometimes not be so friendly to your wallet. As an Internet marketer – having an office where employees can gather sounds like the ultimate form of success. After this happens – you finally can feel like you truly made it.
But are offices truly all they are made out to be?
Depending on where you live, office space prices can really fluctuate. If you live in the big city, office space can cost you all of your profits if you try to “go big or go home.”
A new feature of SERPd is our member interviews! For our first member interview we are speaking with David Leonhardt a.k.a amabaie.
David has been a member of SERPd since our beginnings. He was kind enough to take some time out of his busy day to sit and answer some questions from the staff of SERPd. Below is our conversation…
SERPd – As we all know, most people don’t grow up thinking about one day becoming and SEO or internet marketer, and as such i’m always fascinated how people get into this business. Would you care to talk a bit about your history and how you found your way into the SEO/blogging business?
SERPd update -
As of 07/31/2011 we have implemented some changes to the social sharing on the posts that are submitted to this site. Please view the screenshot below…
As you can see we have added the Stumbleupon and Google +1 button for websites along with the tweet button. These are all one click shares that will case an additional social vote for the posts submitted to SERPd.
It should be noted that the votes you are casting are for the original URL and not the posts on our website. This is just another way we can help you do two things:
So as our Spam has doubled over the last 30-45 days we have stepped up our anti spam efforts and it seems to have been quite effective. Simply banning users who are clearly spamming is not enough. You must ban their IP’s, their usernames, and the URL’s they are trying to spam! This has been an effective strategy and over the last 7 days we have seen a sharp decline in spam on the main SERPd site as we continue to week out the spam for you!
It’s really nice to have a good reputation. This means that people who know you actually LIKE you. They listen to what you say and they trust you. You’re part of their lives and they’ll help you out if you get in a fix. Basically, good reputation is essential both offline and online and especially when it comes to business, it’s even more essential. It’s now about how your audience in your niche feels about your blog. Remember that your visitors don’t have to buy necessarily from you since the competition is strong and they have hundreds of other options.
SERPd announces the immediate release of the official SERPd forums. SERPd users can now login to the forums where you can continue in depth discussions, ask questions, share knowledge, and more!
We are starting out with a few generic forums and will create niche forums underneath the main categories as demand requires.
How Do We Find It?
We hope to see all of you on the SERPd forums where you can share and learn even more than ever before on SERPd!
In case you aren’t one of the “cool kids” in the SEO community or have been living in a cave in Pakistan, you may not know about the first annual SERPd SEO Ass Kicking Contest.
Keep in mind that you can join at any time during the course of the contest which will run through August 2nd 2011.
We’ve seen some really creative and (cough) informational content being published on the web in an attempt by our brave and skilled SEO warriors with the balls to put their mettle to the test against their peers!
