For some time now, I've been looking for an image that I could use on my websites to represent SEO.

Because I could not find one, I decided to create one of my own and offer it for free on WikiMedia.org:

Search Engine Optimization, eCommerce, Web technologies...

(click on the image to get a full resolution version: 1,288 × 772)

Feel free to use it on your own blog or website. I'm more than happy to share!

Also I could not share the original format which I'm attaching here.

The year 2014 is going to be a killer year for small businesses and social media. In 2014 some of the trends of 2013 will continue to rise in 2014 while others will fail. But it all depends on how you communicate with your audience, how you share the content, how you leverage relationships. Content has always been a king and will remain the king.

Social Media Marketing Trends to Your Business

Here are the trends for 2014 and how you can get ready:

As I've been around the Internet for a while, I've found many things and the timeforglory.org website is one of those things. I've noticed that website before. Actually, today I found out that it was just a dump website. The owner decided that whatever he was doing with it was to be turned off. Unfortunately he turned it off in the sense that he removed his content and ignored all emails about new comments... and thus it is a big pile of comments from spammers.

I was wondering, how big is that page? It really takes forever to load... So I downloaded it and looked at the size:

As you create a website, you generally first want to create a site that works. That makes total sense, obviously!

Once the site functions, however, you probably want to wait a little bit for things to settle and see how it generally works. What gives you best results what doesn't help, etc.

Then, you will want to optimize the site for speed. This means making sure that your website appears as quickly as possible to your users. A site that's slow is most often left behind very quickly. I've been using such sites so I know what I'm talking about! (One site I still use that's very slow: ...

Drawing on a piece of roman potery of a couple hiding inside a cloak.Search Engines are dumb robots1. Internet Marketing Entrepreneurs are Smart Humans (or so they think... cheeky) It is therefore rather easy to outsmart the dumb robots. Today on the Snap! Website blog I will show you how you create a website for the purpose of gaining a higher rank using a very simple cloaking technique.

There are several things that determine your rank, but the main factor is how many links point to your website. To increase the number of links you can increase the number of posts you make on other websites.

  • 1. Yes. I know. They are already pretty smart, but these are generally not as smart as a human being. They do not know how to automatically adapt to new situation without having a few humans tend to them and increase their intelligence.

Old Canadian Phone Booth in Vancouver.I think that some people get upset that I offer them to connect with me on Skype and refuse to do so...

Very frankly, I now rather only connect with the people I'm likely to talk with rather than everyone who tries to connect with me on Skype. Many are there just and only to sell their services which I don't need so there is no point in connecting with them.

.lol TLDICANN added 14 new TLDs, such as the .ss for South Sudan and the .tel for telecom companies, in the last 28 years. TLDs started being in use in 1984.

This year, ICANN decided to offer companies the opportunity to define their own TLDs. 1,900 applications have been submitted and we expect ICANN to release information about those on June 13, just a few more days...

Moulting chick penguins.
Guys! Look at that ugly penguin hiding...

Google is constantly changing (improving...) and this time many got a hit because of their new Penguin update. In my case, the latest changes have been rather positive, but many people got hit the wrong way around and their ranking went down, possibly very much so (some talk about receiving a negative ranking and suing Google over it!)

The latest change can affect anyone, although if you've done nothing wrong, you should be just fine. This being said, the way this new release works can lead to your website losing its rank because someone else played a trick on you. Whether Google can detect and/or accept that you weren't responsible is a different question. At this point, it is still a bit early to say that it is all bad.

So? What did they do this time?

ValleySEO.net LogoYesterday I created a new Twitter account and I could not get my Profile Picture to load (they also call it the Twitter Avatar).

I tried I do not know how many times, changing the format of the image (JPG instead of PNG) and it still wouldn't work.

Today, I found this message explaining that somehow it's a major technical problem on their end.

Toshiaki Kawada shaking hands with Zeus, 2008Today I wanted to touch one of the most important point about Email Marketing with you. You may actually be surprised... but this important point actually applies to writing a blog like I'm doing right here, right now in my Snap! Websites journal.

First and foremost, I noticed a trend in the last two years of people saying that when building your list of subscribers you shouldn't ask for the user's name. Apparently, some people noticed that they were getting more subscriptions to their marketing lists by just and only asking the users to enter their email address.

My personal (and I insist on that term: personal) feeling is that such marketers are missing the point. Either that, or they are building a list of subscribers that they only want to keep for a very short time (possibly a good thing for MLM, as those marketing an MLM product generally expect a very quick Yes I'll Do It answer.)
