SEO Case Study

OK - so that relaxing thing lasted like 5 minutes. I have jumped back into SEO in a big way this week focusing on tuning the title tags of the MeghanWier.com site as well as working with the Nickster, SEO Guru on several projects including Graver Water Systems.

I have decided to journal the Graver Water SEO project on the SEO Rochester Blog. Feel free to check that out. The Graver site will be a challenge, but we will get them there. The Graver SEO Case study will go through the steps that we will be taking and the progress that the site sees over the next few months.

One thing to remember is that SEO is a process. It will not happen in a month, or two... it needs to be tended to and massaged; SEO needs time and patience. I cannot stress this enough. I continuously have people wanting immediate results - and don't get me wrong - so would I, but we all need to be patient, put our heads down and work hard to make this happen.

Other big stuff going on - our Bristol Condo week is coming up AND... MY BIRTHDAY. Don't forget - March 1st. Cards can be sent to Meghan Wier, 150 Lucius Gordon Drive, Suite 119, West Henrietta, NY 14586. :)

THANKS

Olympics and Relaxing

I feel like it has been forever since I actually had a chance to relax--but today I am enjoying a lazy day of sitting on the couch with my young son and watching a little Olympic Womens's Hockey, and doing a bit of blogging. It is very nice.

Now don't get me wrong... I really should be managing a couple adwords campaigns right now, or getting more promotional postcards out for Confessions of an Introvert. And once that is done - there are some Valentine's day cards that should be sent out to my loved ones. And once that is done there is the follow up emails to clients that should be send, the meghanwier.com website to be updated and the kitty litter box to be changed...but it will all wait.

The US team just won the hockey game... blow out... and my kid has moved on to a more exciting venue.

- I suppose that means I should get on with my day. Well, maybe after a little more blogging.

I love Saturdays.

Growing Old is Pigeon Poop

There are certain things that my dad says which go right over my head. My father is a biblical scholar, and to be honest, I just don't follow most of what he says about the lives of the early biblical scribes... but the other day dad said something I got... something that I will remember as amazingly profound and uncharacteristically to the point.

He said: "growing old is pigeon poop."

I couldn't agree more. Several people I love dearly are suffering severe medical problems today. And that puts things into a bit of a perspective. As crazy as my life is, my health is - ok. I should eat better and exercise - and the list of family medical problems to report to the doctor is ever increasing, but I am ok. All that SEO stuff and book selling and that really cute sweater at the mall - none of that matters in the end. Life is short. Too short.

My thoughts are with my family, and my friends tonight

(Too bad that after the hundreds of thousand of scholarly words my father has put to paper, the only thing I can recall at the moment is a statement about excrement...I might be the worst daughter ever.)
