SEO > ProWeb SEO Services
With the exception of just a few clients, ProWeb SEO Services has effectively been on hiatus for most of the past year. Now – since this site has acquired a new design – I will be actively working on Search Engine Optimization again and publishing some of the data that I’ve been collecting. ProWeb is restarting and this is the first update. Expect to see some more information about what we do and how we do it, but – you know – sporadically …and at random. As always, I will share my views in a straightforward and casual manner and I hope you will appreciate the candor. Helping businesses make more money by getting more customers to their websites doesn’t have to be such a complex and mysterious process. Watch out, Las Vegas… you better hide your pandas and penguins, because internet marketing is gonna be happening around these parts again.
I’m going to start sharing some of the stuff that I’ve been doing while I’ve been neglecting this SEO website. (Which will lead to it not being quite as neglected. Hopefully.) I’ve been spending too much time at my day job these days, but I’ll try to dig up some information that will give you some idea of my internet marketing effectiveness. To start slowly, here is the organic traffic from the exact dates of my time working for an undisclosed medical job website:
Unfortunately, this is the only positive metric that I can provide from my time with this company, since they ignored approximately 80% of my recommendations. Keep in mind that this data specifically excludesthe visits from any of the people that were working on this project. The site was completely new and went “live” at some point in late October or early November. The design for the site was not completed until December, however, and the dip in traffic at the beginning of December was when they reset all of the content on the site when the design went live. The larger dip at the beginning of the year was when they completely locked me out of their system for “security reasons.” The friend of mine that helped me get the job was let go from the company and I think they were worried that he might try to convince me to sabotage the website or something. At least, that’s the only thing that would have made any sense. Being locked out of the system for over two weeks made fixing a simple robots.txt issue take way too long at the expense of probably half the average visitors for that time. Anyway, I wish them all the best – because that’s the kind of person I am – but, beyond that, “it was a learning experience” is the most I can add about my time working for this particular medical job website.
