SEO News from My SEO Guy
At long long last… we have connection and phone, and all things required to service our clients.
It has been a battle, and very inconvenient for us, and appallingly bad for our clients. But Telstra have come to the party and supplied the promised landline, and established us with a solid and reliable internet connection.

As many of you will know we have recently moved the office of Grimpond Marketing and My SEO Guy. Despite extensive pre-planning and assurances from our connection providers, we have had nothing but headaches since the move, and have been without connection for some time.
In addition to that we have had continued power issues that have also been unresolved until today…

Using tracking pixels is a bit “old school” but is still used by some publishers and advertisers for tracking hits/users/etc.
So what is a tracking pixel?
A tracking pixel is a small 1×1 pixel image, often in gif or png form, that is inserted in certain pages/ads/forms so that the stats associated with the image can be used as an anlytical tool.
So how does it work?
Each element of a web page is loaded on the page after it is ‘requested’ from the server ‘serving’ the said page. Eg: When you load this page.. each single element(espec. images) are called as the page loads and then your browser puts it all together to make a page.
Seeing and using Google Analytics for the first time can be a bit daunting…
Statics for website usage and access have improved and got more complex over the years. The days of counting “hits” is now long gone.
My SEO Guy found this nice explainer article on what each of the technical term means at Google Analytics.
Here’s just a snippet.
Like many others we “lost” a number of Google “Places” pages when Google changed the structure of Google Places, Google + and Google My Business. We had a dashboard full of “A Google+ Page” and “Default Name” after Google had done the clean out.
So how are we meant to tell which page is which in order to reclaim and rebuild it?
This was a problem, that we spent a long time searching for a solution to.
Now we have found the answer.
Once again it has been some time since we updated everyone on our own standings in Google for our chosen prime keywords – SEO Brisbane – so it is time for an update…
Our last ranking update had us at position #32 for ‘SEO Brisbane’, and we were pleased that we had seen a nice rise in our ranking. I explained in part then that the rise was due to “work” we had been doing, and that we were pleased with the outcome.
But now.. I know in recent times we have not been doing the “work” required, and I am expecting a drop in our Google ranking.
Before I check, I will have a look at Google Webmasters and see how we are doing… one sec….
I am still getting my emails from a certain SEO Company that shall remain nameless… even though I never signed up to their ‘news” in the first place and have unsubscribed via their link. Which appears to not work, so I keep getting their little gems that I have previously mentioned.
So what little gem have we received this week…?
Over the weekend Google rolled out the Penguin 3.0 update to the web.
This update has shifted search results and has a lot of webmasters
waiting to see where their rankings will settle.
The update we did the other day, made me go looking, in some detail, at the words the My SEO Guy does rank well for. By doing this analysis, we can find out a couple of key bits of information.
1. What words we do rank for.
2. What pages are ranked for the keywords above
3. Why are those pages ranked for those keywords
The answers to these questions can help guide our(or your) Search Engine optimisation plan, and tell us(you) what is working and what isn’t and what need’s adjusting or deleting. This analysis can really help change the effectiveness of the work that we do.
I received a little SPAM email from an SEO company based in Sydney this week(or was it last week?) and I always find it interesting when SEO Companies and Consultants have to resort to email spamming to increase their client base..
Remeber! The first rule about email spam remains..
Rule Number 1. Don’t do business with email spammers – It only confirms their “marketing” method.
