Ever wonder what that funny little orange symbol is? Many people recognize it as RSS, a few people even know it stands for Real SImple Syndication, even fewer people realize what that means. The good news is we really don’t have to understand it to take advantage of it. RSS is at the root of our blogging platforms. It is the technology that allows bloggers to be both the reporter and the publisher. RSS allows a means for us to publish to the world and then have a simple method for people to subscribe to our “feed.” Here at the Cyber WIgwam few people care about that but we are excited that the nature of RSS has an impact on our SEO or Search Engine Optimization. The bloggers at Council Blogs know that effectively choosing tags for their posts can have an organic impact on their Findability. Why? Currently, the search engines like to parse the RSS feeds because it is easy to find where the new information is coming from. Rather than send web-crawlers out to find new aspects of a site, it is easier to monitor the RSS feeds to see what is new. If our blog posts are appropriately tagged the search result impact is astounding. In SEO tests conducted at the Cyber Wigwam we have posted in the morning at 10:00 and received Google Alerts for those posts with the target tags by 2:00 that same afternoon. Our bloggers have found that we can focus on telling the story of our business and let the tags and RSS handle the SEO.

Sunday is Earth Day. Look at the data regarding raising our food and the environment.

Today, I want to talk about the Olympic champion of nutritional supplements. So many athletes had stopped taking vitamins because they were showing up in their screenings for substances that are not allowed but the founder of USANA®, Dr. Myron Wentz, offers any athlete $1,000,000 if there is ever a problem with our products. The longer I represent USANA, the more I understand their commitment to excellence and to their customers.
Teddy and TLC Construction work with customers remodeling all kinds of rooms or doing different kinds of additions. ”Can you save ____?” is one of the most frequently asked questions. This has as many answers as there are projects! Customers are usually not looking at sentimental value but wonder why incur the cost of replacing something when it looks fine to them.
Swift like Mercury go the Olympic Bloggers for Findability in 2012. This year’s Olympic Games in London has the bloggers at Council Blogs thinking about the traits of the olympians. Swifter, Higher, Stronger. What we see in the blogoshpere is that time waits for no one. Don’t be plagued by writer’s block. Get out and blog, no matter how terse it is.
