<![CDATA[Celebrating 500 Days Uptime]]> Celebrating 500 Days Uptime

Happy Easter to all! This Easter we are happy to report that our Internet Marketing Platform has reached 500 days of consecutive uptime. That's right - our main server has been slaving away in a busy data center, serving you and your customers for over 500 days without a break. That's why I love technology.

Over the last few years we've been working hard to improve the reliability and response times of our platform and although the work has paid off already we continue to add more monitors, tests and checks for our software and hardware to ensure that our service is available when you need it the most.

So we hope you had a nice Easter break. If you missed the holiday, don't feel bad. Our software was working the whole weekend too.

Sunburnt Internet Marketing is happy to announce that we have recently upgraded our backup server to a more stable and secure network. You'll be glad to know our platform backs up your data on a daily basis so that in the unlikely situation that our network spontaneously explodes your account is safe and can be restored rapidly.

The total cost is just $49 including exporting all your data, burning it to DVD and sending it through the post to anywhere in Australia (contact us for postage outside Australia).

<![CDATA[How To Write An Author Bio]]> How To Write An Author Bio

Authority is a important quality to display on your website, blog and other marketing materials. One of the best and simplest way to give your articles authority is to add an author bio to each of them. An author biography is just a short paragraph and photo of the author at the end of the article which helps connect the reader to the author.

Here is an example of a good author biography from our software development blog:

Author Bio Example

Writing a good author bio is not too difficult if you follow these basic guidelines:

  • Include a clear headshot.
  • Frame yourself as an expert.
  • Qualify your expertise with experience, awards, degrees or any other recognitions.
  • Link to your social networks in order to attract followers.
  • Keep it short - three of four sentences is enough.

Your photo is important and you want to follow the same rules as for any profile photo you would use on your social networks:

  • Show only your head.
  • Crop out background noise and other people.
  • Try to get a photo with a plain white background.
  • Adjust the contrast and color levels so that black is pure black and white is pure white.
  • If you have a professional profile photo, use that!

To add a bio to your articles with our software you just need to do two steps:

  1. Complete your author profile and bio by clicking the user image at the top right of the screen.

  1. Select the "Show Author Bio" option when you create or edit your content.

<![CDATA[How To Import Keyword Research Data]]> How To Import Keyword Research Data

When you write new content for your website it pays to know what people are actually searching for. Google's Keyword Tool will give you this information, and now you can import the research you do with Google's tool when you create your content.

The imported data can be used by our software to make some small automatic optimisations and is also a handy reference for you when reviewing the performance of your content.

So let's get started.

1. When you create or edit some content, use the "Find Keywords" link to open Google's Keyword Tool.

2. Enter your keyword ideas and see what other suggestions Google gives you.

3. Sort the results by search volume and/or relevance and select the top keywords which are relevant to your content.

4. Download the keyword data as a CSV file. Make sure you have the keyword competition, global search volume and local search volume columns displayed in that order.

5. Close Google's Keyword Tool and attach the downloaded CSV file to the content you are editing.

6. Finish your content using the top keywords in the title and body where relevant and click save.

7. You can see the keyword research you imported when editing the content by following the link in the sidebar.

Now that you have attached your valuable keyword data to your content you can choose to show the top search terms at the bottom of the page. These terms will be linked to the page which improves the keyword's relevancy for search engines. Select the "Show Top Keywords" option:

And you will see the top 10 keywords added to the end of your page:

Please keep in mind that although targeting good keywords is an essential part of your SEO efforts, adding them on your page will only give you so much milage in terms of rankings. For keywords with any competition, Google will rank content primarily based on:

  • relevance (how well the search query matches the page content)
  • page authority (quality and quantity of links to the page)
  • domain authority (quantity and quality of links to the domain)
  • page quality (as determined by Google's algorithms)
  • click-through-rate on search result pages
  • author rank (who wrote the article - this factor is new)
  • freshness (for certain queries)
  • a few hundred other smaller signals

Keep writing quality relevant content and promote it at every opportunity.
