– I say, “Thank you, so much!” Kim Komando has been at this a lot longer than I have…

After you read the referenced article (on KimKomando.com), you may find a deeper appreciation for the tech guys and gals who can actually work through all of the steps suggested by her advice!

My advice differs, quite a bit, actually. There are several tools we use to restore your computer to working order. If you want to spend a couple of days learning about malware and what it takes to remove it, I suggest: Bleeping Computer or Malwarebytes websites. The punchline is; right there on the home page of Bleeping Computer:

There are 1018 Virus Removal Guides.

But seriously, folks… If you should find yourself at Kim’s last step (of the 3 simple steps…), where the only solution is to wipe your drive clean and re-install your operating system, I really wish you had called me sooner! Also, if you are not backing up your data, we really need to talk.

3. WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS
When a virus won’t go away, or has damaged your computer software past the point of repair, there’s only one solution left. You have to wipe the hard drive and reinstall your operating system.

My next post should be about your second computer. What?
Did you just say you don’t have one? NO-OH-OH! Cringe, heavy sigh.

Palm Desert SEO Expert with Tags

Palm Desert SEO Expert

Apparently, I have to “look after” my tags. Let’s see….

I’ll tag this one with the title. Then, I’ll go back and tag my other posts the same way.

We shall see if WordPress lists my posts, after I’ve put the tags back in place.

Tagging Your Posts On WordPress

There are many posts here, under Rouzell, that have the term, “Palm Desert SEO Expert” in the content. But, a search for that term provides a link to WordPress where people see a message that says, “Don’t see any posts under the tag you searched for? That’s because there are no posts with that tag yet; maybe you should write the first one.”

So, apparently, tagging your posts is extremely important if you are posting to a WordPress site.

I’ll fix this now….

What Works

Search still works!

So, I did a search for “what works” and got some useful results. Skip that link, unless you have some time and an open mind for exploration of global change topics. Well, OK, many are local change topics, but you know what I mean! That is a pretty generic search, so you get some non-specific results.

Next, I searched for “what works in SEO now” and I got results that include many of the usual suspects. CB SEOSearch Engine Journal, Moz, Copyblogger, etc., they always have something useful to say on this topic. So, now I’m listening to an MP3 that I downloaded from Copyblogger, while I write the rest of this post.

They’re talking about “white hat SEO’s”, with the word SEO used as a noun, meaning people like me, who do the work. And, White Hat means we aren’t doing sneaky things to fool our readers or the search engines. Keyword research is the current topic of discussion, where we learn what search terms people use, which helps us understand how to optimize the content we put on the web, while at the same time complicating the thinking process. It’s easier to just write well, without thinking about how we need to understand (and optimize according to) keyword analysis. See what I mean?

Here’s what I think works and what you’ll find most relevant today (based on your research – not my opinion). Good content on your site, with appropriate links to pages that expand on the search term, is what ranks with the engines. In other words, just write something that makes sense first. Give somebody something useful and then go look at the good content you’ve created and evaluate it for opportunities to link phrases to other pages.

It’s fun (for me) and useful to write while learning. The folks in the MP3 mentioned this link,

Finally, they get to the money bit.

From Leaves of Gold – a random selection, on page 79:
“Blessed are they who have the gift of making friends, for it is one of God’s best gifts. It involves many things, but above all, the power of going out of one’s self and appreciating whatever is noble and loving in another.”

How much power do you give to HootSuite?

How much power do you give to an app like HootSuite? I was going to connect my Google+ account here, but HootSuite wants permission to:
“More info
This app is requesting permission to create, edit, and delete circles on your behalf, and to add and remove people and pages from your circles.
When you add people or pages to your circles, you can share things with them, see what they’re sharing with you, and Hangout with them (if they also have you in their circles). People and pages you add may appear on your public Google+ profile and are notified that you added them, but they’re not told the names of your circles.”
Create, edit and delete Circles? No, I think I’ll retain control over those things! Thank you.
