The other day, Spaceman3750 asked for more help on actually building readership to your blog on this post. That reminded me that I haven’t given a promotional tip for awhile, so I’m going to have to get my act together and start posting these more often! What the people want, the people get! Keep in […]

A few days ago, Dave posted about a question that’s on a lot of peoples’ minds: when is the best time to monetize my blog? The problem is, if you ask 1000 different webmasters this question, you’re liable to get 1000 different answers… but based on the comments people were making, I think this is […]
We’ve broken the top 100k on Technorati, just short of two months after we started actively posting and promoting our blog. I know this isn’t a major accomplishment, but it’s definitely a step in the right direction. Jay and I want to thank all you guys who read our blog regularly, especially those of you […]

Another one of these lists is starting, and this is the first time we’ve been tagged (thanks Chee)! The idea behind this list is specifically to increase RSS readership, by spreading the subscription love around! We’ve noticed quite an increase in our feed numbers already, so we’re all over this like a dirty shirt.

Originally when […]

The Title Tag
Putting your keywords in your title tag is perhaps the biggest bang for effort you will ever get with your website. Not […]
…are people who post their sites up for sale but aren’t really serious about selling them! Last night, I ran across a Hilary Duff fan site that was ranked in the top 10 for its term and had an average of 2000-3000 unique visitors a day - and best of all, the homepage had a […]
As you probably know, Jay and I are in a partnership developing sites; I usually try to get him involved in anything I’m doing online because we generally have the most success when we work together. The only reason he’s not involved in my latest project is because he didn’t like the start-up costs of […]
Awhile back we announced the launch of Easy By Design, our web design operation designed to take advantage of the contacts and ideas we’ve developed over the past year.
Today, Dave and I met in Waterford, Ontario, for a few hours of “working” mixed with a short game of Warmachine and me proving how crappy I […]
This week, we’re going to be looking over the results of the website review traffic function that I talked about last week here. I feel it’s important to discuss results for two reasons:
1. I said I would, and my word is my bond.
2. I didn’t hear a peep out of any of you re: […]
