  • Facebook LIKE Button Gets A Sibling – Introducing The SEND Button

    Posted April 26, 2011 By in Pet Sitters, SEO and Marketing With | No Comments

    mailboxFacebook has just announced a nifty new social plugin tool that makes it easier for people to share your website content with their friends and connections.

    It’s called the Send button and you’ll soon see it located right next to the Like button at the top of webpages or blog posts.

    It’s similar to the Like button that we’ve all become used to seeing on blog posts and web pages. The Like button has allowed you to share web content with your friends by posting the link to the web content page on your Facebook wall as a public broadcast.

    So what’s different about the Send button?

    The new Send button allows private sharing of web content. It will allow you (and your readers) to share web content directly with your friends and online connections via email. Or you can also share web content with any of your Facebook groups.

    This means that instead of relying on your friends to check their Facebook wall feed or your Facebook page – you can now send the web content directly to their inbox (either Facebook inbox or email inbox) where it is more likely to be seen!

  • How To Safely Add Links To Your Pet Sitting Website

    Posted March 30, 2011 By in Pet Sitters, SEO and Marketing With | 2 Comments

    link buildingWhat was the last link you added to your pet sitting website?

    Some pet sitters will exchange links with non-competing pet sitters to help visitors find appropriate resources.

    Others may partner with a veterinarian office, animal hospital or groomer and place a link to their website.

    The decision to place a link from your website to another website should be considered carefully.

    Without a complete and full understanding of how Google and the other search engines determine the relevancy of your links, you could be doing more harm than good.

    You also don’t want to lose sight of the main purpose of your website: to educate your visitor with enough information that she can’t wait to get the ball rolling with you.

    Every link on your website to an outside website is another opportunity for your visitor to leave. But that is not even the worst possible scenario that could happen.

  • Are Your Current Keywords Actually Hurting You?

    Posted July 1, 2010 By in Pet Sitters, SEO and Marketing With | 1 Comment

    Question: What does the term SEO mean to you?

    Sure, we all know it stands for search engine optimization but how do you actually go about optimizing your pet sitting website anyway?

    The approach we hear most often includes the use of “keywords.”

    Make sure you have your keywords in your title tag” for example, is something I hear a lot.

    I then begin to hear about pet sitters who become frustrated that their website is not showing up in the search engines for their own keywords.

    While this could be an accurate frustration, more often than not there is usually a piece of the puzzle missing – a big piece of the puzzle.
