Fun: Why would I want to call my Snap! Website blog "Kadanuumuu blog blog"?

Not too long ago (June 21, 2010), an article came out talking about Kadanuumuu. According to scientists, Kadanuumuu would be a great grand father of Lucy, one of our ancestors. This gave me the idea of calling my blog here Kadanuumuu blog blog.

Why? Because Kadanuumuu means ...

I have been around for a while, as you may have guessed, and this is a subject that comes up quite often... What domain name should I get for my company?

As you can see, this website is called Snap! Websites. The name of the product is Snap! and it is all about you creating a website online. Already guessing the answer for your website?

Internet Marketing includes Branding with your Snap! Website

I'm probably not the top expert in Internet Marketing, nor at Branding. But I do very well understand both concepts. The masses do not (they get trapped by it!)

My first example at branding is the following Google Search:

http://www.google.com/search?q=alexis+wilke

Notice that I did not put the quotes as in "alexis wilke". Thus, this search returns all the Alexis Wilke in the world and any approximation of the terms. Right? Not really. The first page is 100% about me. Actually, the first 80 or so websites1 returned are a reference ...

SEO with RSS and Links on your Snap! Website

Last week I talked about RSS feeds, explaining how that Internet technology works and the main purpose for you to broadcast your RSS feed information.

Here I will talk about another aspect of your RSS feed to strengthen your SEO1. Remember that all Snap! Websites generate an RSS feed, even the free trial.

When you write an article, you should include one or two links in your teaser (the teaser is the part that gets broadcast via your RSS feed for people to read... or rather, to tease people in clicking on your RSS links and get them to read your blog on and on and on...)

What is RSS and why do I want it on my websites?

Quite often, when I talk to people, they have no clue of what RSS is, how it works and what good it can do for them. Put simply:

RSS is a technology used by website owners to stay in touch with their audience

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. This Internet technology creates syndicated content from your posts that many in your audience can follow using tools such as Outlook, Thunderbird, Chrome, FireFox or Internet Explorer.

Not that long ago, I would have been telling you that Facebook is not for me. Well... I now have over 3,600 friends on Facebook (and I probably already had over 100 people de-friend me...)

So? What are Social Media websites for? Primarily, it is to make friends. You talk with people, share your adventures of the day, and as most people do, mention your likes and dislikes (and also for super extraverts: share you moods!)
