The High Cost Of Organic Seo
By Chris Angus
A discussion of the going high prices of having your site subjected to “organic SEO’ and whether or not it is just as well for you to search engine optimize your site yourself.
If you have been surfing around on the Internet looking for information on you have probably noticed that professional experts have gone wild trying to push something called Organic Search Engine Optimization on you. These companies usually offer an all in one umbrella service to optimize your site including design, content and keyword searches. These companies, that are found on Jeeves, Google and Yahoo promise that their services can help you be found organically by people looking for your site in the search engines.
This is not really that impressive as an organic search engine result can be simply defined as a listing in a search engine that you did not have to pay for. This was the original purpose of in the first place. However nowadays almost all of the search engines offer businesses the option of paying to get an ad listed whether it be through a direct purchase or through a program like Google Adwords.
Is this money well spent? First of all some studies have shown that only about thirty percent of people will click on
those paid search engine listing simply because they are seen as less credible then the ones that rose naturally to the top in the search engines. Although this makes a case for spending money on organic you may also be shocked to learn that the cost of applying to even the smallest of websites is usually about $10,000. What is incredible about this price is that you can usually do what they are going to for your site yourself – especially if you are in the first stages of designing your site. They will simply look up keywords, apply them to metatags and your content as well as make sure that your website is more functional. Perhaps the best situation in which to spend this type of money on would actually be in the beginning stages of your web design so that you can avoid costly overhauls of your site in the future.

Google Ads Do Not 'Pop Up'
Those who know me all to well are aware of my irritating resistance to the word "pop up" in connection with Google AdWords ads.That was one of my many suggested corrections to a recent story on Google ads over at The Register, for example.My take is that slipping the term "pop up" in journalistic pieces about Google (as in, "and for only a dollar or so, Mr. Neufeldt's ad would pop up on Google when searchers typed the words 'truck tires'...") is part of an ongoing, insidious campaign by sellers

YouTube Copyright "Fair Deal" Methodology
Stale news, but interesting:Jeremy Toeman received a notice from UMG regarding his posting of a video on YouTube that included copyrighted content (U2's Beautiful Day) in the background. The offer from the copyright owner, facilitated through YouTube, basically said, go ahead and leave the video up if you wish, but we'll be showing advertising on it.To some this might sound heavy-handed; to others, a nice compromise. I tend to think the latter. As Toeman writes, "I'm basically being encouraged b

Revenge of the Straw Man Argument: Jarvis Unhinged
Jeff Jarvis, apparently writing a book called What Would Google Do?, must have Michel Foucault spinning delightedly in his grave, as he has just discovered post-modernity! Jarvis asserts that "the Internet" is what "... opens up creativity past one-size-fits-all mass measurements and priestly definitions."I understand that as a journalism professor whose job apparently hinges on the lucrative current trade in old-media-bashing, Jarvis sort of has to say this stuff. "Curmudgeons" don't get invite

Google Street View: showing us what we may or may not want to see
I?m typing this post from my basement. Yep, I?m holed up here with bottles of water, canned tuna and powdered milk ? everything I?ll need to survive the Apocalypse. I can only assume Judgment Day is upon us, given the new low human contact recently hit when Google employee Michael Weiss-Malik proposed to his girlfriend using Google Street View.

Example SearchMonkey Deployment
So basically, what SearchMonkey does is allow publishers to push their customized content look and feel right into the Yahoo Search results. Well, not push, actually, but make available, based on open formats. So for users who opt into the widget for any given company's rich content, if the listing for that content comes up in search results, custom look-and-feel info included. So if it's a Yelp review, you get a bit of the Yelp "richness, look, and feel" right on Yahoo.When I search for "g h jo
