I’ve been stressing out the past few days racking my brains for my perfect first entry here on PhoenixRealm. I was thinking of posting some philosophical piece about SEO, or a short but very informative piece on the basics of SEO, or even a plain introduction of myself. Anyway I ended up deciding to go for a very simple first post that will give you all a glimpse of what to expect.
One of the problems that SEO blogs face is that you can find resources on the basics of SEO scattered all over the net. SEO bloggers, needing a regular output, have taken to rehashing old topics. If you practice SEO though you know how online trends evolve very rapidly and how search engines adapt continuously to improve results, combat spam, and keep in pace with the ever changing user habits and preferences. What this means for SEOs is that we cannot rely on just the basics to make sure that our own sites and those of our clients remain competitive. Knowledge of the basics is critical but keeping ourselves updated about the latest developments and news on the major search engines (not just the almighty Google) as well as new methods/techniques in SEO is just as critical.
So what this means for PhoenixRealm is that while Gary and I will continue to give short tutorials/reminders on the basics of SEO we will also strive to keep you updated on search engine news, the latest SEO trends, conference news, and the occasional philosophical piece on what it means to be an SEO. I will also be posting links to interesting/notable blogs posts tackling SEO and/or web design on a regular basis. So if you have an SEO blog do leave a comment so I can subscribe to your blog and hopefully be able to learn something new from you as you learn something new from my posts.
I’m really excited for what this year has to hold for PhoenixRealm. I’m sure I’ll enjoy posting here and interacting with everyone. Cheers!
