SEO (search engine optimization) is "Live Ammunition" post Panda and Penguin. Here are 20 tips to avoid harm to things you love and those who love you.
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Had fun writng this piece. Added a header this morning and moved it to Atlntic BT's Blog: http://www.atlanticbt.com/blog/20-seo-cracks-sure-to-break-your-websites-back/ 

Wrote a companion piece, an admission of guilt. Ever wonder how I know so much SEO? No I am not and have never been a black hat, but I CAN BLOW SHIT UP (lol). 

Nothing like blowing up a million dollar thing to get promote fast learning. Sometimes we were stupid and stuff blew up. Sometimes we got stepped on by IT and stuff blew up. Sometimes Google, in their ininite wisdom, decided we needed to be blown up for reasons I've yet to comprehend.

Here is my admission of guilt, my "secret" about how I learned so much about SEO :): https://plus.google.com/u/0/102639884404823294558/posts/E7HASsQDxWp

Quick Web Writing Lesson - Curagami

Quick Web Writing Lesson - Curagami | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it

Web Copy
Writing web copy that wins hearts and minds is easier and harder than you think. Easier because tiny changes make huge differences in customer engagement and your website's ability to convert. Harder because learning to slow down and think about things like empathy, using OPW (Other People's Words) and the right way to use acronyms takes practice, discipline and courage. 

Here are the tips we share on Curagami:

  • Use OPW (Other People’s Words) – Trusted sources or industry gurus make excellent sources
  • Use Customer Words – Customers know you listen when they see features of User Generated Content (UGC)
  • Touch the Universal – R&D is hard, takes time and money is a “universal truth.”
  • Cliches – Cliches are another “truth” you can turn in your favor
  • Empathy Words – Use words that create a sense of empathy between YOU and whoever is reading your copy words such as “collaborate,” “teamed with” and “love.”
  • Acronyms – Acronyms can convey industry knowledge, but be sure to explain fully the first time you use an acronym
