I have a bunch of little articles on Examiner.com. Arts and Entertainment in the Bay area. If you go out and click on them, I get an ooch for each view. Something entirely insignificant, like a penny each. Or half an ooch. But every click counts. If you get a chance, please go clicking. 🙂

The Power Of Having Keywords In Your Domain Name

Iin this lesson, Brian talks about the power of having keywords in your domain (and subdomain) name. When he had multiple sites, he made sure the all had different domain names. He also made sure each site had separate content. He says not to duplicate content in multiple sites. The engines will detect duplicate content.

He recommends using  Google Adwords Keyword Tool to find out what people are searching for.  Doing all this upped his hits, but he was still not seeing all the results he wanted, so he switched tactics and looked at putting keywords in Subdomain names.

Combining his sites into one domain: www.UniversityTutor.com made it easier to manage, but he didn’t want to lose the benefit of having keywords in the domain name(s). He decided to use regional subdomains. Each city that had a tutor program in it was a separate subdomain under UniversityTutor . (He even has it set up so a new subdomain is created automatically each time an tutor comes on board in a new city. His format of  “[SUBJECT] tutor [CITY]” like “algebra tutor austin,”  allows him the possibility of generating over x 1,000 = 40,000 potential keywords to rank for. Wow!)

To keep the ratings from his old, multiple domain system as he transitioned to the new single domain, multiple subdomain one, he used a “301 redirect” to tell Google (and other search engines) when he are moved. Subsequently, he used Rank Checker. (a free Firefox plugin) to check the status.

Thank you Brian for this lesson and the others at your site.

Do you copy and paste from Word and get annoying html-ese like the above? Here’s what to do about it

From 8-common sense tips for writing clean wordpress blog posts.

1. Copy / Paste

This is where most non experienced WordPress users manage to really mess up their blog. And it’s so easy for them to do so! All it takes is the wrong kind of copy / paste: simply copy / pasting text from Word or from another web page will most likely add a lot of unnecessary (and sometimes harmful) CSS styles and HTML tags. It’s what I call “garbage”. Based on the source you copy from, there can

be a lot of garbage!

If you’re used to writing your posts directly in the WordPress editor, you won’t have this problem. But in some occasions, you do need copy / paste. So in order to avoid this issue, there are a couple of things you could do:

  • Click the Kitchen Sink button to show more options, click Paste as Plain Text (Paste from Word removes only some of the garbage) then paste your text there. You will loose simple styling such as bold text or links, but this is not necessarily a bad thing.
