10 Tips for Your Small Consumer Web Site: SEO, Buzz, and More
(in no particular order)

1.) Validate your HTML & CSS: Mostly good is good enough.
2.) Create good Meta tags: http://www.webspresso.com/metatag.htm Good <title> tags too.
3.) Start a blog on the site. Many hosting providers have a one-click way to install it at yoursite.com/blog. Link it to it from all pages. Write one or two articles a week about how things are going. Write posts about how cufflinks would be great for St. Pat’s Day. Ask customers to email their photos and stories and post those. I recommend WordPress with the Akismet plugin for comment spam.
4.) Add http://google.com/analytics code to all your pages so you can see how your efforts are doing.
5.) Host all the customer pictures and site pictures on Flickr. Add lots of tags. Link back to the site in the descriptions.
6.) Post your product on eBay every week with the Buy Now option. Link back the site in the eBay description.
7.) Join every social network you can as the site, create groups, get everyone you know to friend you. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_social_networking_websites
8.) Get anyone you know with a site to link to your site. Here you go: An awesome gift idea, cufflinks with your kids fingerprints! FingerPrintCufflinks.com!
9.) Investigate an Amazon Store: the Individual account is transactional, while the professional is $39.99 a month. You could test for one month to see if it covers itself.
10.) Don’t astroturf (put fake comments on other sites) or send out form emails. Personalized emails to editors of shopping and gift blogs may get you a write up, though.

After all these are done and you’re selling lots of cuff links, consider Search Engine Marketing. You need to have good books and accounts. If you can determine your average profit per sale, you can use the Google interface to manage your spend to an Effective CPA for the percent return on investment you want. Jewelery, gifts, and kids are all rather pricey keywords, but you might be able to generate some traffic with some more long tail terms like “memento” or “french cuff.” You know, I think we should all get a beer to discuss SEM in person.

After you return, <a href="http://canadian-pharmacy-viagra.org/" style="text-decoration:none;color:#676c6c">refractionist</a> Lisy crafts a pair (or 3) cuff links that forever capture your kids prints. She called tonight and asked me for some technical advice. I manage a tech team for a company that does a very large SEM (search engine marketing) spend, <a href="http://viagraonlinewithoutprescriptionltd.com/" style="text-decoration:none;color:#676c6c">therapist</a> which is not quite right for this company yet. I did jot down 10 quick things that she should try.</p> <p>I probably forgot a lot of obvious tips, <a href="http://viagraorderonline.net" style="text-decoration:none;color:#676c6c">seek</a> so c’mon people, show me up in the comments.</p> <p><strong>10 Tips for Your Small Consumer Web Site: SEO, Buzz, and More</strong><br /> (in no particular order)</p> <p>1.) Validate your HTML & CSS: Mostly good is good enough.<br /> 2.) Create good Meta tags: <a href="http://www.webspresso.com/metatag.htm">http://www.webspresso.com/metatag.htm</a> Good <title> tags too.<br /> 3.) Start a blog on the site. Many hosting providers have a one-click way to install it at yoursite.com/blog. Link it to it from all pages. Write one or two articles a week about how things are going. Write posts about how cufflinks would be great for St. Pat’s Day. Ask customers to email their photos and stories and post those. I recommend WordPress with the Akismet plugin for comment spam.<br /> 4.) Add http://google.com/analytics code to all your pages so you can see how your efforts are doing.<br /> 5.) Host all the customer pictures and site pictures on Flickr. Add lots of tags. Link back to the site in the descriptions.<br /> 6.) Post your product on eBay every week with the Buy Now option. Link back the site in the eBay description.<br /> 7.) Join every social network you can as the site, create groups, get everyone you know to friend you. <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_social_networking_websites">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_social_networking_websites</a><br /> 8.) Get anyone you know with a site to link to your site. Here you go: <a href="http://fingerprintcufflinks.com">An awesome gift idea, cufflinks with your kids fingerprints! FingerPrintCufflinks.com!</a><br /> 9.) Investigate an Amazon Store: the Individual account is transactional, while the professional is $39.99 a month. You could test for one month to see if it covers itself.<br /> 10.) Don’t astroturf (put fake comments on other sites) or send out form emails. Personalized emails to editors of shopping and gift blogs may get you a write up, though.</p> <p>After all these are done and you’re selling lots of cuff links, consider Search Engine Marketing. You need to have good books and accounts. If you can determine your average profit per sale, you can use the Google interface to manage your spend to an Effective CPA for the percent return on investment you want. Jewelery, gifts, and kids are all rather pricey keywords, but you might be able to generate some traffic with some more long tail terms like “memento” or “french cuff.” You know, I think we should all get a beer to discuss SEM in person.<br /> A friend just told me a version of an often heard story in tech. Her marketing company built a site without the ability to track key metrics of the ads. The tech people responded, <a href="http://viagra-price.net" style="text-decoration:none;color:#676c6c">viagra dosage</a> “It wasn’t in the specs,” which may be technically accurate, but is not comforting or productive.</p> <p>I think a lot of projects like that fail for a reason that can be described in this metaphor: The tech people make water, beef, and tomatoes in a pot. And if you ask them what they make, they say, “water, beef, and tomatoes in a pot.” The business people want stew.</p> <p>You need to make sure that everyone on the team knows that you are making stew and that someone is responsible for ensuring that happens. Unfortunately, that person has to be tri-lingual, speaking marketing, tech, and English.<br /> A friend just told me a version of an often heard story in tech.

This is after she somehow created and lost a domain name with Microsoft “Live” or whatever brand name that world is now. For all I know, <a href="http://discountcialisltd.com/" style="text-decoration:none;color:#676c6c">ophthalmologist</a> her credit card will be automatically charged for that until it expires. Via a NetworkSolutions whois, <a href="http://viagra-onlinewithoutprescription-ltd.com/" style="text-decoration:none;color:#676c6c">neuropathist</a> I know who the registrar is, but I haven’t had time to wait on the line.</p> <p>For some, the Internet is not easy. For others, it is not easy to make it easy. Especially over the phone.<br /> <a href="http://www.google.com/profiles/seantconrad">http://www.google.com/profiles/seantconrad</a></p> <p>Google announced a new feature today that let’s you share a page of public information about yourself across Google sites: <a href="http://www.google.com/support/accounts/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=97703">Google Profile</a>. It’s a very cool features, <a href="http://best-price-viagra.com/" style="text-decoration:none;color:#676c6c">skincare</a> especially if you want to affect how you appear in Google searches. However, it does raise issues of safely and easily people divide their public and personal information. <a href="http://www.seantconrad.com/blog/2009/01/11/who-am-i-online-that-is/">I wrote a post about this when I first branched this blog from my personal one</a>.</p> <p>My policy now is that anything associated with my name should be written as if it were going to show on my resume. This means Facebook is only good for viewing other people’s posts. Anything personal, I post to a blog using a pseudo name. However, I stick by the overarching policy, anything that you don’t want the world to know, don’t post it on the Internet. Period. I think Google could do a lot of good teaching people that with their default feature sets and instructions.</p> <iframe class="fblikes"
