Medavantage.com live ahead of schedule, way ahead of schedule

The Medavantage web site has important documentation that the sales reps need access to immediately, and the guys at Medavantage are the coolest guys, and I want to help them in any way I can. So as a web designerMedavantage.com who wants to have only perfect sites live, I have to give them an unfinished site. Grant Cooper at Resupro will be providing the content for the site until we begin the SEO campaign. I hate to write, but I love SEO and I love optimizing content, strange. I look forward to the SEO aspect of this site, it will be one hell of a challenge. Medavantage is a national company selling every form of health insurance available. Health insurance web sites are HARD to top, and I am looking forward to getting Pat & Jack the traffic they need to make the site a success.

I was working on the web site tonight and it was really tough. FortuneCity’s servers are still propagating themselves with the site’s info, and every other time I would refresh my screen, I would get a coming soon page from Register.com. This was killing me, but I wanted to work out some of the kinks before they saw it tomorrow. I also need to buy the stock photography for the site and crop the images, jeez, I have a lot to do on this site.

New blog by to Goatsmilktavern Studios

 

New Orleans Web Design BlogI work a lot, and my wife gets tired of hearing about my work, so I had to start another blog so I can get all the crap of the day out of my system. I spend all day trying to work-around web design problems and finding fixes for IE (no matter how bad it is, people still use it), and sometimes the fixes I find are worth sharing, or archiving. Anywho, the blog is primarily about web design, and web design related issues and can be seen here at New Orleans Web Design.That makes three blogs that I try to post on at least 3 times a week. I don’t think I have to go into why blogs are important for SEO and branding. Running multiple blogs is also helping me with my clients, I get more practice at writing impromptu blog posts and I don’t have to spend as much time researching as I used to.

Goatsmilktavern SERP result: Dramatic changes

My SERP results for Goatsmilktavern Studios have changed dramatically in the past few days. I have been fighting with the “new orleans web design” results, and trying to compete with sites that have age and links over me. I began my SEO campaign in June of this year, and I am almost to the 6 month mark where I had set a goal to be on the first page for all of my target keyterms, and I am happy to say I have met this goal. For the past few days http://www.goatsmilktavern.com has been showing up at #7 for “new orleans web design”, I am not sure how stable this result is, but I will continue to work this phrase since my others don’t seem to have any competition. My home page is showing up for “new orleans web design” because of the amount of links leading to it, I would like to get my web design page on the first page as well, and I already have the strategy in motion. I just feel more comfortable when I have multiple landing pages on the first page of the SERPs. Now that I have the base positions I want, I can begin to expand into broader keyterms and really drum-up some traffic.

Now that I have the results I wanted from my first 6 months of SEO, I can begin expanding my web site and concentrate more on generating revenue from it. That’s what web sites are all about, giving useful information, providing products and services, and makin’ money.
