Charles Lewis: Man, that [0:00:16] [Inaudible] Chris Burres: Synchronicity. It has only taken us a hundred times to say the number together. [Laughter] Charles Lewis: 178 or 179 times. Chris Burres: Yes, exactly. Then we get it right. Let’s just start off with this; please remember we are your friendly local neighborhood Top Position Snatchers.

All it takes is three steps or even just one step. We’ll go with one the second thing. Go on to iTunes, create an account, write a review. We would really appreciate that.

It’s an actual video podcast on iTunes. It’s the Unknown Secrets of SEVO Website Analysis. S E V O stands for Search Engine Visitor Optimization; what do you do with a visitor after they arrive from the search engines. Charles Lewis: That podcast is really focused on helping you to get conversions. This podcast really helps you to get traffic and get placement ranking. More importantly what happens after the click, how do you make your money. That’s what this podcast is about. Chris Burres: Tip from last podcast – I just had a brain shutdown and restart, thankfully. [Laughter] [Cross-talk] Chris Burres: Tip from last podcast is: on a PPC campaign make sure to use negative keywords to get the most bang for your buck. Charles Lewis: Definitely. If you’re running an Adwords campaign or a Bing campaign if you’re paying for clicks then make sure you take advantage of using negative keywords. There are some keywords you don’t want to rank for. Chris Burres: Typically, fiy. Charles Lewis: DIY Do It Yourself, free. They are all terms that you don’t want to be shown for. Make sure you take advantage of those usually at the campaign level. Chris Burres: Good tip. Also if you need more PPC tips go back and listen to podcast number 179. That’s probably a better tip but we like to have a tip. News from today that I read today may have been sometime this week. Apple overtakes Samsung on device sales. Charles Lewis: Did I see that? Okay, I did see that. Chris Burres: Pretty interesting. Blackberry releases their newest touch Blackberry in the UK. Why in the UK? Charles Lewis: Because it’s probably not working here. [Laughter] Chris Burres: It’s the biggest Blackberry market it turns out in the world. So, it makes sense to release it there. Hey, new product get it out there. Android Key Lime Pie may be coming soon. I’m excited about that. It just sounds tasty. Temple Run 2, have you heard of this game? Charles Lewis: Yes, my kids play it. Chris Burres: Apparently a lot. It’s the most downloaded in the shortest amount of time game ever. Charles Lewis: They got me playing fun run. Chris Burres: It’s stupid addictive. Charles Lewis: Yes, it’s stupid addictive to the point we’ve turned it into family time. Imagine I’m on my phone, my wife is on her phone the kids are on their tablets and we’re all playing with each other. Chris Burres: It’s a good game. All right. We mentioned Facebook. [0:05:00] We have some questions that were sent to us from Facebook. I’m going to start with this. It’s actually a review. We have the outline of it here. I don’t have a review on iTunes that I can read. I’m going to have to extract this although I could probably have found this one. This is from Bob Russell he’s found us on Facebook. “Just about halfway through the podcast and I’ve learned so much. You guys really have a good flow together. I’m the owner operator of a carpet cleaning business in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.” I don’t know why I say it that way. “Still optimizing my site with SEO by Yoast. Tell me how to juicy Backlinks.” How to get juice links, I think. “Let me know what you think so far.” elementsrestoration.ca was his website. That’s the one I showed you. The website is beautiful. Charles Lewis: Oh, that guy. Great site. A couple of things which will practically help your back links [0:05:50] [Inaudible]. Frankly, your site we didn’t do an official analysis yet. We will. But it’s not clear anywhere in your site that you do carpet cleaning. I thought the site looked great. The layout was cool, it was clean, navigation was easy to find but it wasn’t all clear identification that it was actually carpet cleaning until you began the reading. Chris Burres: Knowing that it’s carpet cleaning the website is perfect other than the fact that the website doesn’t jump out at you that it’s a carpet cleaning website. Great job. Charles Lewis: [0:06:24] [Inaudible] content in order to get juicy back links, juicy, right? You want something to add some value some link juice with it. Trade great content something [0:06:36] [Inaudible] maybe something entertaining, something that people would want to link to. That’s the right method to go. That’s what we would do. We try to put some content that we could share, that we could make social that we could possibly go viral with that, that
people would want to link to.
