Revisiting SEO and wedding photos

I've not worked in SEO for a number of years having concentrated by accident on social media.

I always found SEO quite easy because basically it is about acquiring links and I never found it hard to get any site I worked with decent links and good visibilty in search engines.

A few months ago, an old friend asked to recommend a website builder for his new wedding photography business based in Crosby, Liverpool.

I searched around and found a decent page that gave an honest opinion of the various options. It's here, it is quite good.

Unfortunately, he signed up with Go Daddy and used their website builder - it just seemed easier for himself - its limitations means he will struggle to get found in the search engines without a bit of effort.

Leaving that aside (I'm sure he will do well by word of mouth and have a pretty website to point people at) I started to remember all the times friends have asked me about SEO or I have told them I knew about SEO and could help their site (free of charge because they were friends or family).

Over a ten year period, not one used any advice I gave them.

Many of their businesses failed.

I did try but unfortunately sometimes people think they know better.

Possible early find of Super Bowl XLVI commercial

The advertising companies must love it when people actually can't wait for the half-time Super Bowl commercials and have to find them early instead.

It looks likes someone has found an interesting early ad - one with flowers, a skateboard and Dubstep (whatever that is).

Here is the link anyway. Enjoy the final.

Watching Liverpool in Berlin

It's taken me nearly two years but I think I have found a decent place to watch Liverpool FC in Berlin. The Irish Inn Damaschkestrasse  have just had Sky installed (after a bit of persausion so that will be where I will watch the games on Sky.

Previously I had been going to the touristy Irish pub in the Europa centre but the prices are a rip off, the food is tastless and the service poor. Try changing a dodgy beer in there and they get offended and give you the same one back.

Add that to the fact you can't smoke (except in a dingy, badly ventilated smoking room), the badly positioned screens and the fact they have live bands and karoke going on during the games then I'm glad I have found my Liverpool oasis.

They also have free wi-fi, a big screen and did I mention the cheap beer?

World Cup Website

Well, I'm back. Just to tell you I have the old World Cup site up and running. It's nothing too exciting but we have some better writers than myself working there.

We ask important questions like "What time do England play USA?" or "What to do with Gazza" and more insidpidly "Have the press ruined England's chances?" (Crap story...not worth a link!

Anyway, have a look and see what you think. I believe this IS England's World Cup year. I have waited too long....though sadly my passion is starting to run out. Football is not the same.

Boo Hoo.
