Lissie, could you write an article about using google analytics with our wizzes? I've heard about that so many times, and every time I go over to tackle it, it looks too hard. I give up. Something about adding COde to individual pages? That sounds tedious.

Marie, I'm always willing to help out with something as simple as word choices. If you want an American vocabulary, I can help!
I would look for your cookies with the terms sandwich cookies, thumbprint cookies, heart cutouts. And a combination of those terms. Jam or jelly probably would not come into play.

Thank you, Jimmie. That's really kind of you :) Those cookie terms are not familiar to me at all so I will have to investigate those.

Back link building is a never ending uphill battle in my experience, hence I have given up on it. What I do instead is:

Thorough keyword research and analysis.

Writing the best possible article I can to answer the 'what ever' the searcher might be looking for.

As for the rest, interlinking several articles on the same topic, bearing in mind the differences between UK / US spelling, measures etc - Listen to Lissie.

Social signals like FB likes are nice, but don't waste your time on it.

Don't waste your time on external link building neither if your content is not worth ranking for anyway.

*Steps from soap box*

PS With worth ranking for I don't mean anybody personal here, just the 're-publishing re-hashed content link spammers' ChefKeem has mentioned earlier.

Extra tip: Make sure you actually mention your keyword, plus some related keywords in your article. If you do know your subject, you will do so naturally. If you don't know your subject, you shouldn't write about it anyway.

Our own Ron Passfield has written a very. interesting. article. on the recent Google changes and how they will impact us online marketers.

In his article he recommends Bill Guthrie's 20-page manifesto, "We're witnessing the quick death of SEO as we know it". Which sums it all up what we should know for our future as online marketers. 

I'm still reading Bill Guthrie's manifesto (I'm half-way through)...it's worth its price in gold. (No. I'm not an affiliate.)

At the time of this post, the price for the manifesto is $8.54 (with supposedly only 2 left before the price goes up).

Yeah I always find "golden" information on Warrior Forums. All this tells me is that there are going to be a lot clowns moving over to G+ and their will be less link building competition for me. Yeah! 

Do I really need to explain just how easy it is to game social media results? Perhaps I should write me own WSO LOL

Did you read it, Lis? I thought that the first part on the Google search changes was pretty interesting.

And if you have any good tips on how to game social media...could you elaborate?

From someone who feels like she is always playing "catch up" or "keep up" in the world of SEO, marketing, keywords and so on... I just wanted to say I really appreciated listening (reading) this conversation.

I have done some things very well and it has yielded the desired results -- other times, not so much. 

Chef, I read three articles you mentioned, bought the report from Bill, read it and now have a plan forming in my mind (if not physically yet). Thanks for bringing this new info to the forefront. You are a pioneer Laughing and I appreciate it!

I'm not a pioneer, Mandee.  I just try to stay on top of (and share) new info from reputable experts in our field, including info from Google itself and various expert interpretations thereof.

I'm not saying we should change everything at the spur of the moment, just because some "guru" had a bad case of brain gas. But I think that the current movement around Google Plus and "Search and My World" is definitely worth a closer look and appropriate adjustments.

Am one of those keeping a close eye on the latest thinking about Backlink building. To be honest although I subscribe to the current recognised effective practice of:

keyword research

write quality unique content using those keywords

publish

build backlinks

I have to admit that it has always seemed strange to me that backlinks from article sites (and I own one!!) that cover nearly every topic under the sun (except the yukky stuff) would count for much.

It really does make more sense that if I publish an article about Bullying then I need to get links from other sites that write about the topic.

So I am watching and if we get to the time when it is keywords and content that count more than backlinks, then I will be Cool with that.

And as for Google+ - our friend Ron Passfield is writing a lot about that at the moment and I am thinking that as Google own Google+ AND they have a rather popular Search Engine, then again, whether we like it or not Google+ is going to have more influence on our position in the searches  whether we like it or not.

And if Google+ knocks Facebook off its perch, then I for one wont be too upset.

Jimmy - looky here:

http://wizzley.com/google-analytics-setup-on-wizzley/ 

http://wizzley.com/google-analytics/

I tried the first link. Can't figure it out. I already have an Adsense account, and the directions on AJGodinho's page are written for someone starting from scratch as far as I can tell.

I have already plugged in my Adsense publisher ID here at Wizzley. Do I need a NEW one? And how can I claim wizzley.com when it's not ALL my site? I followed the directions as best as I could and it gave me a new publisher ID. So do I have to change mine over here?

It's also telling me to add code on each page I want to track. Ugh. I can't do that. That was what always put me off before. 

Sorry to be dense. I would love to get the data for my wizzes, but I can't make heads or tails of it.

OK, I try to help, NO you don't need a new Adsense account, you are only allowed to have one, so don't try to get a second one. Just put your Adsense ID in your settings here, add wizzley.com to your allowed sites on Adsense and you are good to go.

As for analytics, yes, just claim whole Wizzley as your own site ;-) It will only count the parts where your content is published, no worries. You don't need to put in any code in your articles, just one time (your publisher id) in your settings / profile and Wizzley does all for you.

Hope that helps, SY

And if Google+ knocks Facebook off its perch, then I for one wont be too upset.

Me either AJ! I have never been a huge fan of FB. 

Having attended the school of Paula, AJ and Bev... I also use the formula you mentioned above, however, backlinking is my least favorite part. Frown

If what I read in the manifesto, from Ron's article and a couple of other reputable bloggers and teachers, it seems Google is on the track to more and more personalized results in the SERPS -- if you are not connected (thru Google+) you could very well be left behind sometime in the future (did that make sense?) Your results will depend on what you share, link to, location and/or otherwise interact with instead of a straight #1, #2, #3 etc... 

It seems social media is here to stay but the authority given to tweets, FB and G+ may be swinging in Google's direction, at least in Google SERPs.

More than one of the authors I read have basically stated that Google is valuing recommendations (links and shares) to other relevant websites from our own content and social streams.

“We're transforming Google into a search engine that
understands not only content, but also people and
relationships.”
– Amit Singhal, Chief Engineer, Google

 Bill Guthrie says to look at the changes to Google as an opportunity to re-focus our efforts by becoming part of your "niche community" -- that Google seems to be diminishing traditional SEO, little by little. 

 Whether we chose to take action (or re-action, as it were) is our own personal choice. However, if ranking well is necessary or important, following what it going on in the world of Google is just good business. 

Here's Mr. Singhal's post about the new rollout for Google search on January 10th. Very interesting... IMHO, building trust and authority are more important than ever going forward.
