Internet Marketing and Better Backlinks - Different? Better?
Is your web site fast enough?
Uh oh… this one kind of slipped in under the radar but get a load of this – GOOGLE announced on April 9th that they are now using site speed to help determine web search rankings!
Yes – Google is obsessed with speed and now it’s more important than ever that you are aware of how fast your pages load.
I’ll put the links to the source material below – but let’s take a look at what Google is telling us:
“Our internal studies show that visitors tend to spend less time on sites that respond slowly, and additional recent data shows that improving site speed also reduces operating costs. For these reasons, we’re now taking site speed into account in our search rankings.”

How many blogs do you have???
Are some of them for business purposes?? What about the “personal blogs”… do you have one of those?
At least one I hope! Ideally several… I have several… that’s good – right?
Blogs are for making money – at least – BUSINESS blogs are for making money.
Personal blogs are for sharing stuff and having fun.
Two different things entirely.
I found out pretty soon after starting this blog – Mike Liebner’s Internet Marketing Blog – my first personal/business blog – that having one “personal blog” simply is not enough!
I initially intended for this blog to be for reinforcing my business identity and credibility as being an expert in internet marketing related topics.
I wanted to discuss topics about doing business online and publish internet marketing articles – BUT – I am also into a lot of other things too.
Like most people – I have a lot of interests. Music, photography, computers, technology etc.
But the topics could NOT coexist together in the same place… at least not while having the max impact I desired. My business oriented intentions needed to have the focus.
Do you want to have a “professional identity”? If yes – a business blog is what you need.
Blogs can have many intended purposes – you can post for fun, pleasure, goofing around or BUSINESS. Not funny bidness but MAKE MONEY BUSINESS. (continued – read more of this article…)
