Thoughts on SEO, social media, and other geeky things.
Just who do I think I am? http://zimorama.com/
I once spoke with a bunch of ASP.NET developers (and even bought them a round at Starbucks) pleading with them to set up their websites with some basic SEO-friendly setups. They weren’t even my clients!
My dad types any website he wants to go to in a search bar because he is convinced that if he types it into the URL bar he will get a virus. He also only uses Yahoo Search because he thinks that if he uses Google, Yahoo will know he is “cheating” on them and delete his account.
The rest mostly comes from advertising — and the advertisers still prefer print and TV. As this Mary Meeker slide shows, we spend more time engaging with mobile devices than reading print, but print publications still get 25-times more ad money than mobile.
My mom can get on the internet for hours at a time, but when she’s done, she backs out of it - clicks to go back one page, over and over, until she’s back at her Yahoo mail start page. I’ve told her she doesn’t have to do that but she insists on it.
