Community Member Spotlight with WebsiteSEO

Hi everyone and welcome to our community member spotlight. This week our top weekly user spotlight goes to WebsiteSEO.

As the name suggests, WebsiteSEO focuses on SEO. What impressed me most about WebsiteSEO is they constantly publish high quality SEO related articles. One of their recent posts is on if backlinks and link building are now worthless. This topic has been up for debate since Matt Cutts announced that they were going to be penalize those sites who participate in link exchange. Some popular sites like MyBlogGuest have also got penalized because of their way of providing guest posts to bloggers.

According to WebsiteSEO, spam has increased manifold in the last few years. The Internet has seen a drastic increase of spammy activities. What’s more surprising is that now a days softwares are available for spamming. They contain automated programs and algorithms that helps anyone spread spammy content. This is one of the major reasons that Google has been tweaking it’s search algorithm so much. Many misunderstand the steps that Google takes. However, if you look at it from search user’s point of view, they are trying to provide the best results as they possibly can to the users.

Another impressive post on WebsiteSEO is how to grow your traffic naturally. With rising competition everyday, getting search engine traffic is becoming more and more difficult. However, they are also the best traffic that you can have. Organic traffic is the best because it guarantees unique visitors and a much greater exposure than social media.

The first thing that you need to grow your traffic naturally is sharing unique and informative content. People prefer new and fresh content which the search engines also prefer. The second step is sharing your content. Apart from social media, forums are a great way to bring in natural traffic. Most people underestimate the usefulness of forums. The third step is to share products. Sharing popular products are a great way to bring some attention to your blog. The products that are popular among the general public work well with this approach.

WebsiteSEO also provides tips on website optimization especially for mobile devices. Mobile devices are becoming more and more popular. Everyone now a days surfs the internet on their mobile phones. That’s why Google also now takes into account the mobile design of your website. You might have a great website for the desktop, but if your site is not optimized for mobile devices, then your search rankings will suffer. That’s why it’s important to have a responsive design for your site. Even if you don’t have a responsive design, you can create a custom app of your website and ask people to download it on their phones and tablets. You can also use WordPress plugins which will transform your WordPress site into a mobile site.

So, make sure you connect with WebsiteSEO to know more about them. You can add them as a friend here on Blog Engage and also follow them on Twitter.

Learning To Blog From Jayson Feltner

Jayson Feltner is the Vice President of Allied Equipment, the largest manufacturer of CNG storage spheres in the US. Apart from being involved with such a successful company, he is also an avid blogger. He posts about 3-4 times a week in spite of having such a busy schedule.

He doesn’t really write about his work on his blog. In fact, he writes about his passions. Business, faith, leadership and productivity are the things Jayson is most passionate about. He likes to create content that are both useful and exciting.

Blogging Tips from Jayson Feltner

Jayson maybe a Vice President of a manufacturing company but his blogging knowledge is equivalent to those of pros. One of his latest post on blogging tips is how often you should blog. This has been a hot topic of discussion for a very long time now.

jfeltner

Some suggests that the more you blog, the higher your search rankings go. Some say it is enough to just post once per week. Some bloggers post 3-4 times daily – in most cases out of paranoia. They believe that posting 3-4 times daily will skyrocket their search engine traffic which is certainly not the case. Because apart from quantity, you also require quality.

Jayson has actually done an extensive research on world’s 30 top bloggers. He has studied their blogging style and frequency very closely. Each of the bloggers have different posting frequency. By studying them, he came to the conclusion that it doesn’t really matter how many posts you publish. It also doesn’t depend on the length of post. He found that one blogger daily wrote 2000 words articles but he only 29 out of the top 30.

Another impressive post on his blog is how long a blog post should be. Like above, he carried out this study by observing the top 30 bloggers in the world. Some of the conclusions that he came to are

    450 words per blog post should be enough.
    It is also possible to build highly successful blogs with long posts typically around 2000 words
    The posts should be easily readable by the visitors. Readers tend to scan your articles, not read it word by word.
    His study showed that most of the top 30 bloggers prefer to post 3 times a week with the exception of few who post daily.

Leadership, Motivation and Productivity

Leadership and productivity are two of the most passionate things for Jayson. Since graduating from college, Jayson has held multiple leadership roles. Being a business student at Texas State University, he took many leadership roles in every group.jayson

When he first joined Allied Equipment back in 2007, manufacturing of CNG storage spheres was only a side project. But in a few years, with his leadership skills, he was able to turn it into something profitable. Now he is the Vice President of the company which is largest manufacturer of CNG storage spheres in the US.

Being a leader was always Jayson’s passion , but he is very serious about other’s and his own productivity. Jayson has always been very motivated about reaching his goals in all aspects of life. To put it simply, a great leader motivates others and increases their productivity.

Jayson is a self made man. That’s why, to him, setting up goals and reaching them has always been very critical. According to him, only 8% of the people are able to follow their New year’s resolution. The remaining 92% just don’t or can’t do it.

Jayson has been in the natural gas industry for a while now. So, if anyone wants to take any advice from him or even just career advice, you can contact him. Jayson is a very stand up guy and he is always willing to help other people. There are a few reasons why he chose a career in the natural gas industry. It’s because it cuts down on pollution because would then run on CNG and LNG. It will also save transportation costs when US uses it’s own fuel reserve.

So, make sure you connect with Jayson to know more about him. You can add him as a friend here on Blog Engage, follow him on Facebook, follow him on Twitter, add him to circles on Google Plus, connect with him on LinkedIn and subscribe to his RSS Feed.
