Whole Site Delivery and Amazon S3

Whole Site Delivery

There is a great deal of buzz about a service known as “whole site delivery” provided by content delivery networks. The way whole site delivery works, is by caching all of your site’s assets on servers all over the globe as soon as they have been accessed from the origin server. Once this occurs, any user in a particular region can access the files without having to send a request to the origin server, which may be halfway across the world. This helps to eliminate the amount of traffic that your origin server sees, which can be quite beneficial.

Are You Making These 6 SEO Copywriting Blunders?

If you’re like me, you already have. Heck, no one’s perfect. But, Google’s 2011 release of Panda (and 20 subsequent updates so far) means that the search engine focuses on quality content much more than ever before.

What Google means by quality is much different than what an experienced freelance writer produces as a final product. But, if you pay attention to these 6 common blunders, you keep the quality of your copy at a level both Google and your readers appreciate.

What SEO Hosting To Choose

If you are wondering what SEO hosting to choose, maybe this will help you. Multiple IP SEO Hosting or multiple c-class IP's are good to use. Search engines like these sites on different IPs.

One of the biggest fears held by most website owners is that any small mistake they make in producing their content or interacting their users will immediately lead to precipitous drop in their ranking at major search engines like Google. And, while it's responsible to avoid these pitfalls and mistakes altogether, it's worth noting that an immediate and mind-blowing drop at the internet's search leader is simply not likely in many cases. Such a theory was proved correct by an SEO firm which recently decided to deliberately destroy a reputable website's search engine rankings. As part of its project to make a first-page result into a last-page afterthought, the company loaded that website up with more than 50,000 undesirable links. This included forum posts, blog comment links, and other links placed into the sidebar for the sole effect of destroying the site's reputation.

Placing and Receiving Guests Posts

Getting back links to your site is one of the most important SEO (Search Engine Optimization) tasks, or so you may have heard. And a popular way to get quality back links is to guest post on blogs other than your own. You can find a blog that is more popular than yours, contact the owner of the blog in any number of ways, write some good quality content, and deliver the content with a number of links to the blog owner. Sometimes some negotiation is required to determine the content you will write for the site. And sometimes the blog owner will not be interested in placing guest posts on their site.

Two services are now available to assist bloggers in placing guest posts and in obtaining guest posts. Cathy Stucker operates the Blogger Linkup which is a daily email comprised of available guest posts and sites looking for guest posts. The service is fairly hands-off as you will need to contact the site owners listed and handle the normal guest posting details described above. Getting your information into the email newsletter can be accomplished through Cathy’s website. It’s nice to have a service that takes you one step closer to completing a guest post like this one.

If you are looking for a service that nearly completes the entire guest posting process for you, than The Keyword Academy’s Guest Posting System is what you are looking for. You will need to join the sites Pro membership group to use the service, but your first month costs only one dollar while subsequent months are close to thirty dollars. This service works with Wordpress blogs to collect guest posts, check them for several important qualities, distribute them, and approve them. You can be a site publishing guests posts by installing a plug-in or you can be a guest poster, by adding content to their custom interface. Take a look at their documentation for more details.

Either service, or both services are great to use just make sure you double-check the content before you publish it and produce good content if you are going to be a guest poster.
