Beth, You Naughty Thing

Well. A sudden new entrant is taking the Beth Morgan scene by storm. Although Beth Morgan news tends to be dominated by cricket Beth Morgan, the chatter these days is about a very, very naughty Beth Morgan in Australia who approved controversial real estate developments in exchange for sex and cash. Beth! That is shocking! And I thought that porno Beth was bad for the Beth Morgan brand. This sounds like something soap opera Beth Morgan might do. I’m sure it’s been amusing to cricket Beth, who has been in Australia cricketing away while all the sordid details of naughty Beth have been making headlines there.

Update: Big shout-out to Sex & Cash Beth for causing an explosion of traffic to the blog!  As with the people seeking MILF Beth, I sadly don’t have much for you.  I’ve never even been in a position powerful enough that I *could* demand sex and cash from anyone.  Even with the husband it’s more of a negotiation than a demand.

As a follow up to yesterday’s post about how (perhaps embarrassingly) excited I was to see that I had wandered onto the Google rankings, this blog tripled its usual traffic and tied one of its best days ever in terms of page views: a big 6!  I’m going to get some advertising going on this thing, and in about 1,000 years I can retire and live off the income.  However, I’m sure this is only the start of something bigger.  Just wait until I switch genders, then the traffic will come rolling in.

Naming Your Company: Think About SEO, Too

It’s very common when a new company is casting about for a name to consider domain availability in making their decision. But as search becomes an increasingly powerful way for customers to connect with companies, another issue to consider is the discoverability of the name. Cobbled-together names like “Meebo” or “Digg” may sound gratingly Web 2.0, but they also have the advantage of minimizing noise in search.

Google To Include Blogs In Search Results

I guess I have a little bit of a crush on Google today.  And I haven’t even mentioned how much my heart lifts when I open iGoogle and see my Daily Puppy.  Wait, let me check…Hi, Thelma the Slovensky Cuvac, aren’t you fluffy?

Although I haven’t exactly viewed Google’s Universal Search as the enormous game-changer it was portrayed as, it’s worth mentioning the latest news that blog results will be included in natural search results as part of Universal Search.  In light of my experiment to own Beth Morgan search results, it underscores the importance of blogs and blog postings as an important SEO resource for those wishing to improve their showing in natural search results.
