How to create 301 redirects

An essential task to complete when transferring your site or pages to a new URL

Anytime you transfer pages to a new URL, it’s imperative that you let Google know where to find these new pages. You do this with 301 redirects. These instructions tell Google that those pages have been permanently moved, and it will respond by updating it’s index. Here’s how to do that.

SEO for medical writers and other service professionals

getting found in the search engines is tough

Or, how does a little Goby get found in a sea of sturgeon?

Do a query in Google, and you’ll see that there are over 10 MILLION pages competing for the keywords “medical writer.” With that much competition how can a freelance medical writer get found in Google?

Sound impossible? It’s not. Follow these SEO tips in the following Powerpoint presentation that was given to the Northern California Chapter of the American Medical Writers Association on November, 6, 2011, and you too can rise to the top.

Have questions?

SEO for Web Designers

Or, what I learned from Hedgehog Books

Way, way back in time, I took on the job of creating an online bookstore for a couple of teachers who wanted to provide a place where parents could find and buy teacher-recommended books for their children. The name of the site was “Hedgehog Books.”

The name itself conjured up all kinds of cutesy things so we hired an artist to paint our home page, and cute it was. Our artist created a forest scene for us with a hedgehog reading a book to a group of fine, fun, and furry friends. When she was done, I took it into Photoshop and painted in street signs to serve as links into the site. It was, I have to say, when of the cutest home pages I had ever seen.
