Google Analytics for Outside Blogs Step by Step and Getting Traffic That Just Won’t Quit! - 03/31/09 04:01 PM
Yesterday there was some big news on the Active Rain network. Brad Andersohn announced the staff has finally added Google Analytics to the outside blogs. A lot of us have been waiting a long time for this to happen and I can only assume that there were some big hurdles to get over to get this to even work. But it’s here so everyone should be excited. Most people have probably not had a chance to add the code to get it working yet and the few of us who jumped on this have had a chance to see the reports! (40 comments)
Legalize it Today! And by “it” I Mean EVERYTHING!!! - 03/31/09 11:19 AM
There has been a lot of talk lately about legalizing marijuana and other drugs. There are many obvious reasons why the current laws are not only absurd but racist in design and execution. That’s another whole long series of books and if you are not aware I suggest doing some research. But why all the sudden everyone is talking about this I am not quite sure. It used to be a subject that was often whispered about but seldom talked about. Why there is this fear of discussing a law that is so harmful and obviously illogic really bothers me. In (4 comments)
Active Rain Profile SEO Issue is Fixed! - 03/31/09 10:42 AM
I saw this last night when I ran a rank checker program (Thanks Rocket 55) It was immediately after I responded again to Paul’s blog post here. I noticed that my rank was almost back to its original spot for the keywords Eau Claire Wisconsin Real Estate Agent. I know it’s more of a long tail phrase but it was one that I rank really well for (normally I take up 6 of the 10 first page spots) The rank checker program reported that I was 10 for this spot but when I did the same search it was nowhere to (14 comments)
When Will we Ever Learn? Visual Tour of Chernobyl - 03/30/09 11:19 AM
There has been a lot of talk lately about alternative fuels and trying to “green” our energy usage. Some of the big talks during the elections and since have been that nuclear fission is somehow safe and green. Yet it’s clearly not either of those things. Nuclear waste is being stockpiled throughout the country with no safe way of storing or disposing of it. On top of that nuclear fission is far from safe but sometimes we forget. Sometimes we need to be reminded of why we don’t do certain things. I came across two different articles recently that highlight not (2 comments)
Bill O’Reilly to Have Plug Pulled on his Show? - 03/29/09 02:25 PM
I will do my best to keep out my personal opinions about Bill O’Reilly. Let’s just say we come from different viewpoints and leave it at that. But I will point out how other people feel about him. Recently for some strange reason he was invited to a fundraiser for a group that raises money to support victims of rape. This is strange news because Bill O’Reilly was once sued for sexual harassment and has publicly said the following: O’REILLY: Now Moore, Jennifer Moore, 18, on her way to college. She was 5-foot-2, 105 pounds, wearing a miniskirt and a halter (4 comments)
Content Stealing Jerks - 03/29/09 02:01 PM
Content stealing jerks.That’s an interesting way to put it. You know those people that copy and paste your life blood. Those sweat and tear soaked articles you work so hard for and at the click of a few buttons someone else is getting credit. Some of these people are so bad at stealing they leave your name or a link to your website. Others aren’t quite that lazy and try to edit it just enough to remove any traces as to who wrote it or they add their name at the end. And just so it’s clear that I am not (9 comments)
The War on Spam Goes 3-D With new 3-D Captcha - 03/29/09 01:42 PM
A while back I wrote a post trying to warn everyone that Captcha as a security measure has been defeated. This basically means that anyone who has a blog or any site that uses Captcha for security pretty much has no security. Spammers could easily hit your site with whatever they want and that’s not good. Well it’s good for them but bad for us. So I had a feeling people were scrambling to find a new method of security. Then I saw this article here. This new technology makes it pretty much impossible for a computer to crack so (0 comments)
Twitter Coming to a Car Near you With OnStar??!! - 03/29/09 10:39 AM
Ok at first when I read this my first thought was wow are they crazy or what? Then when I figured out how it works I wasn’t quite so shocked. Apparently they are working on a way or are going to just integrate Twitter into OnStar so that you can Tweet while you drive. Sounds dangerous right? Well it actually works using a voice activation system so that it is entirely hands free. Still sounds a bit dangerous to me but much less so than Tweeting with your fingers. I would think it is distracting though but probably no more so (6 comments)
Saving ink and Saving the Planet - 03/28/09 05:41 PM
This is probably something that most people don’t think about. I know a lot of people are becoming more environmentally aware or conscious and that’s a good thing. Remember that our resources are limited and putting bad stuff back into the environment is not a good thing. Neither is wasting resources. Think before you print might be a saying that you see once in a while but it’s something that you might not necessarily do. Yet it’s very important to remember that saving trees is important. It’s a big waste of natural resources to waste paper. I realize we can recycle (6 comments)
Why Linking to Your Blog(s) From Your Website is Good SEO and not Doing so is Bad - 03/28/09 12:11 PM
Ok I thought this sort of speculation was a thing of the past because so many SEO websites, gurus, and bloggers have covered this topic that I guess I thought everyone knew the answer but it seems not everyone knows so I will try to cover the topic. The question? Does Google discount reciprocal linking or is having a link from your website to your blog bad for SEO? Ok I am going to answer this question in a number of ways because there are a variety of reasons this is just a bad idea. Some people have been suggesting (9 comments)
4 Buyers, 2 Offers, 1 Listing, 1 day and I blogged to Tell About it! - 03/27/09 08:30 PM
I wasn’t sure if the title of this post should be “and I blogged to tell about it” or “I lived to blog about it!” Either way I sure had a busy day the other day. I know some people wouldn’t want me talking about their situation so I try to change things up a bit. But this has seriously been one of the busiest weeks just this week and the other day when all that happened was even crazier. I don’t know what else to say about it but it’s been seriously hard to fit everything in my schedule. It’s (4 comments)
Facebook: Your Privacy is now Your Option… Why Would you not Want Privacy? Read on… - 03/26/09 11:28 AM
For most people privacy is not only a concern it’s an absolute must. This is especially true when it comes to minors on the internet. Privacy matters as well when it comes to spam because in this day and age no one likes to give out emails because of the inevitable onslaught of spam that ensues afterwards. While all the above is most certainly true you must be wondering why on earth anyone would want to give up all that privacy. Well for some of us we don’t want anything private. Every bit of information about us is shared on (8 comments)
Twitter Turns Three and Dozens of Other Twitter News - 03/26/09 10:53 AM
Twitter turned 3 years old the other day and for most people that number probably seems strange because for most people Twitter is rather new. I admit I didn’t know about Twitter 3 years ago but I guess I was into social networking when hotmail was new and am only getting back into it now because of necessity. Not to be anti-social but I really don’t like it for the most part. I do enjoy meeting new people from all over the country but being poked 12 times a day is rather tough to deal with when you work a lot. (6 comments)
Google’s Other big Announcement: Major Change to Snippets in Search Results (SEO) - 03/25/09 11:43 AM
Google just announced some rather big news in how it displays search results (SERP) by now providing an even longer snippet. A snippet is what used to be just a bit of text located right below the link on the results page but now they are rolling out an even longer result. While this is great for the end user this might not be so great for consumers. Ars Technica is speculating that this might lead to more time spent Googling and less click throughs. Translated this means the searcher might get the answer to their question or query without having (6 comments)
Google Starts Rolling out Semantic Searches and More! Big Big News at Google - 03/25/09 10:44 AM
For years SEO experts and not-so-experts have been saying that semantic searching will be the next big thing since Kool-Aid. Some have said it was already here and some said it would never come. Well it’s here. Well sort of. Google announced yesterday that “we're deploying a new technology that can better understand associations and concepts related to your search, and one of its first applications lets us offer you even more useful related searches (the terms found at the bottom, and sometimes at the top, of the search results page)” The thing is that for me it doesn’t seem to (5 comments)
There was a recent post that I am sure many people read regarding whether you should blog for your readers or be worrying about how search engines read your blogs. The premise was that somehow you have to pick one or the other and if so they would pick the reader. I guess this is because from what they understand of SEO or maybe just how a lot of people see SEO is that it sticks out like a sore thumb. But good SEO is good for the reader too. It’s the bad stuff that gets a bad rap.
I often write about the importance of backing up all your files. Why? Because it’s important duh! I am actually shocked at the number of people with websites that don’t even know you are supposed to back up the data let alone have a backup! The same goes for any of your personal data. Think of it as a safe with all your most valuable child hood possessions. If you don’t keep them safe they are but a memory. Why take chances? That’s why I recommend that you have more than one (8 comments)
It was just announced over at Tech Crunch that there is a new social network in town that works a bit like Twitter. Of course a lot of people are trying to work on things similar to Twitter because if it worked for Twitter why wouldn’t it work for me? Duh! Well that’s not always how things work. You can’t just copy something and expect it to work. That’s why they tried to make Jive.ly a bit different and offer more. That’s the thing that might make this thing take off. The (2 comments)
Ok for the most part I have stayed out of the talk surrounding the bailout(s) and the rest of the fallout. Not that I am not interested but for the most part I have little or no control over what is going to happen anyways. I don’t have stocks and I just have a strong belief in the old saying if it’s something you can’t control then there is no need to worry about it. I prefer to worry about the things I can directly control. But this AIG thing is really starting (3 comments)
As if I have to tell you another reason to get yourself and your listings on YouTube but if you are not thinking out of the box then you might not realize there is a vast, hardly tapped market. How about mobile video? This is a pretty new area for a variety of reasons. First of all it was nearly impossible to have enough bandwidth to view movies on a phone. Secondly it was pretty much impossible because phones just couldn’t process movies. They were basically too limited and the resources necessary would (5 comments)
Honestly I wish I could ditch IE once and for all. I just hate it. It sucks and there is no other way of looking at it. It’s just another example of how monopolistic practices result in crappy products. No wonder Firefox and the rest are eating up such a large market share. It’s no secret they are simply much better than IE. While IE 8’s release is certainly good news it’s not really going to shake up the computer world when at best it simply offers some of the features that these (5 comments)
Maybe you don’t watch the Daily Show or follow the news closely but there has been a lot going on lately in the news and as usual the Daily Show has done a better job of covering it than most news outlets. Jim Cramer of CNBC fame was talking as usual and things heated up and well it’s such a long story that it really doesn’t matter anymore. But it led to Jim appearing on the Daily Show where Jon Stewart figuratively took him over his knee and spanked him. It was pretty (19 comments)
I don’t know about you but a lot of my business depends on local traffic to my website.

I do my best to get myself “out there” so to speak and I have a (6 comments)
You know it’s hard to explain what it feels like when you consider that most people know little about computers so the smallest computer feats make you seem like you are some sort of computer genius. The reality of computers is that most of this stuff is pretty easy it just takes time to learn. Most people are not inherently good at working with computers; they have merely spent more time learning all the nuances. I am often approached by people who are just amazed at what I can do and yet I (3 comments)
I guess you can only praise Apple for their marketing efforts because they have done the impossible, take an insecure computer platform and market it to the masses as infallible. How else can you look at it when anyone even reading the words I just wrote is already calling me a liar?

Not Discounted Services… How About all my Services for Free??!! Wired’s Chris Anderson - 03/18/09 12:46 PM
Looking for Eau Claire Homes For Sale? The legend of free marketing and offering your services for free certainly seems like a gimmick. But is it? Think about this for a moment because as strange as this sounds it’s not really a gimmick at all but a fact of marketing that a lot of people might overlook but not Chris Anderson. If you don’t know who that is he is the head of Wired magazine as well “the guy behind the long tail theory.” You can just do a search for long tail if you aren’t sure how important that is (4 comments)
First of all I would like to say that I am probably as sick of hearing about every new social network that comes out as anyone else. In fact I probably read about more of these things every day than the average person. Some are just plain not very useful and when new ones come a long you have to question if it’s even possible to actually have something new! Well in the case of unhub you would be dead wrong because this thing is freakin’ crazy. Want to see what it (10 comments)
As Real Estate agents we know how important our word choice is and how we must be constantly careful of what we say or do or risk certain liability. Often we are placed in situations that we must know every detail of the law especially such areas as agency relationships or we risk some very huge consequences. Without proper agency disclosure, the simplest thing such as discussing price could get you in trouble with either the seller of the home, the buyer or the licensing board. Not only is it important that you (2 comments)
As if you needed any other reasons to slim down your bloated blog and website there might be something else you never considered. Ok first of all you probably assume that everyone has broadband which is a bad assumption because not everyone does so if your site loads slowly on a fast connection it’s terrible to people on dialup. Now imagine what it does to people accessing your sites from their phones? I can tell you for sure that they will move onto the next site that isn’t chock full of slow (8 comments)
If you wonder why I keep writing so many posts about Facebook Connect it’s because everyone is talking about it and it’s probably the biggest thing to hit social networking all year. It’s certainly even bigger than all the changes on Facebook itself. Well now Connect is coming to the I-Phone and I think this will be a big hit as well. I don’t own an I-Phone but a lot of people do and one thing for sure is that the 3G means connectivity and combine that with Facebook and you have (1 comments)
Facebook Connect, Twitter, and TweetDeck Unite! - 03/16/09 01:03 PM
Looking for Eau Claire Homes For Sale? Everyone has been talking about how important Facebook Connect is and with good reason. The API lets you do so much with Facebook that it’s a no brainer that this would spread like wildfire to other websites and apps. Who wouldn’t want to connect to perhaps the biggest social network there is? I did within 30 minutes of the news dropping and you can actually see it in action on my Eau Claire Real Estate website. In fact I already had one person comment as to how I did it. Then you take Twitter’s (1 comments)
I like reading about SEO and I like sharing what I learn about SEO. I know it’s hard for a lot of people to understand all the concepts involved and sometimes there is very conflicting information and other times there really isn’t a single correct answer.

Perhaps the single biggest factor in having your site rank well is building good links to it and one of the (11 comments)
Forbes Billionaire List Updated: Gates Back on Top and New Cocaine Dealer Turned Billionaire - 03/12/09 02:17 PM
Looking for Eau Claire Homes For Sale? I admire the power of capitalism but I also fear what it does to this world, the lives it has destroyed and the lives it will destroy. Why Billionaires are put on some pedestal in this country I can’t quite understand. I for one think Bill Gates probably deserves where he is at and I think he is a relatively modest person. He is also quite a philanthropist and I think that deserves mention. The same goes to Warren Buffet. But of that list few deserve praise. They squander their fortunes and give little (1 comments)
I am sure many people have been following the Madoff scandal. It seemed like every day there was a new piece to the puzzle from him still living in the lap of luxury but with armed guards to apparently have been doing this close to 10 years without even a glimpse of getting caught. I even read many news stories that said he might not even go to jail!!! Apparently stealing millions and billions from everyday people isn’t enough to warrant a crime. I honestly don’t know what suddenly changed but something (8 comments)
Ok speed is in. It’s one of the biggest selling points for Chrome and a strong reason to use Firefox beyond all the great extensions available. Really everyone is getting tired of slow loading sites and if you see my post here you can maybe fix it on your end by fixing your slow site or blog. But it’s not always the website that is slow and sometimes great content just takes time. But when you have a fast connection like I do at home (10 mbit) then why on earth does (10 comments)

You might not have ever heard of Google Voice because for almost the last 2 years Google has been mostly silent about its development but this is perhaps one of the biggest new applications that they have announced in many years.

Well it’s like having a universal phone number, like how Gmail was meant as a way to centralize all your email accounts and make it a one stop email app; Google voice has (12 comments)
If you have been on Facebook in the past week you probably have seen the notice about changes coming. I wrote a post about some of the changes here.

How Does Cutting Taxes for 98% of Americans Sound Like an Increase? When the Richest 2% Control the Media… - 03/08/09 12:20 PM
I saw this article and I personally think it’s relevant to what is going on these days. Regardless of what side of the fence you sit on politically it’s pretty hard to deny the facts surrounding these tax cuts and pretty hard to deny the facts surrounding whose taxes will actually be raised. The fact is that 98% of Americans will get a tax cut and for once we the little guys win while the richest 2% of Americans that is people who make over $200,000 per year or $250,000 for families will have an increase in taxes.

Is Re-max on Crack? - 03/08/09 10:57 AM
I don’t know what else to think about this case other than they must seriously be crazy. In fact I am definitely not trying to say anything bad about Re-max in general but this smells funny. If you read the story apparently they are suing a small local company basically for name infringement arguing that the two companies have similar logos. First of all the company in question is called rehava and remax is spelled remax. If you look at this in plain text do you see any similarities? I think you would have to be crazy to see anything on (4 comments)

The Right Realtor and Real Estate Agent for you in Eau Claire Wisconsin - 03/07/09 07:13 PM
Finding the best Eau Claire Real Estate Agent and Realtor is important. If you are serious about selling your home then you need someone with serious marketing skills. Today the internet is more important than ever and having an agent with a huge internet presence can really make all the difference. Not only is it important to make sure that your listing appears on a variety of websites but you must be sure that the home is being aggressively marketed instead of just passively.

The Long Tail, Keywords, SEO, Blogging and You - 03/06/09 01:06 PM
I have seen several posts lately talking about the long tail and how you need to carefully choose your key words for more effective blogging. While that may sound like a very well thought out idea on the surface but in reality it is absolutely just plain wrong or misleading depending on how you view it I guess. The reason it sounds like a valid argument is that when you lump a bunch of SEO terminology into one post it somehow seems to legitimize the post in the eyes of eager bloggers looking for that extra advantage over their competition, the (20 comments)
