Those starting a new business online often wrongly assume the only way to own a domain name is to register a new one using a domain registrar such as GoDaddy.com.
But the truth is, buying an existing domain name can give your new business venture a head start by giving you a distinct search engine advantage.
The reason for this is that older and existing URL’s are given greater preference compared with brand new domains. With over 90% of all online transactions originating from an online search, having strong search engine visibility is absolutely vital.
Moreover, around the same percentage of search engine users also only ever click on results that appear on page one, so if your business is not found here, is it not likely to ever be found. Read More →

I had a great question on my last post from Melva who asked,
“How does one recover from Google algorithm changes?”
Unfortunately, if you’ve suffered Google ranking dips from algorithm changes, it’s not easy to recover.
However, I say stop worrying about it.
You could chase Google all day long trying to figure out their algorithm, then drive yourself crazy keeping up with their changes so you can maintain your search engine ranking. Frankly, I think it’s a poor use of our time.
As long as you practice good, sound search engine optimization strategies, just wait, chances are your ranking will come back with the next algorithm change. It’s like a crazy roller coaster ride.
But who can wait for that to happen? Nobody! Waiting for Google to come to their senses and realize you have a great site is a little silly.
So what should you be doing? Read More →

Since that time I’ve been reading and absorbing the content, which is amazing, I’m still in awe that I get it for only $10 a month, I also has the opportunity since then to meet Jimmy in person during the NAMS workshop in Atlanta.
All the years I’ve been listing to Jimmy and learning from his products, it was great time to actually see him in person.
