Designing Business Cards in 2013

I have a bit of a confession to make. Growing up, I never wanted to be a web designer. In fact, throughout my life, I wanted to be a schoolteacher, a journalist, a filmmaker, a radio personality, an event planner…the list goes on and on.

Backlinking Strategies for Local Business SEO

As a local business, it’s important to gain recognition in your community. How can you do this? Online exposure can mean the difference between being a mediocre store and becoming a local icon. The older optimization methods are no longer effective in Google’s algorithm. Google has become much stricter with their ranking process for local businesses. Stuffing your content with local terms just doesn’t work and placing your website on just any directory might get you penalized. Whoa! You mean to tell me that I can get punished for submitting my site online? Yes, it’s happening…
