So, once you have chosen a domain name for your would-be website, the next step is to pick a Web hosting provider. You can easily compare different offers available by checking out provider ratings and comparison charts - here is an example.
In this article we are going to discuss what to look for in a Web host, bearing in mind that you'd also like your website to be visible in the search engines one day. So, here are some important things to consider:
The first thing to consider is the country in which the host is located. For SEO purposes, it's better if it is in the same country you're targeting. Google reportedly considers websites more relevant for a particular location if they are also hosted there. Read more »

In the past couple days, we've received hundreds of support tickets from our users asking about some sort of Google algo update and wondering if our SEO PowerSuite tools ceased to function because of that update. Thus, we decided to explain the situation here on our blog.
News of an alleged Google algo change began spreading as a result of a post on Noble Samurai blog, where the software provider officially announced that their product had stopped working with Google. More specifically, the company reported that "several days ago, Google made some significant technical changes to its services" which made it impossible to work with.

Would you like to be able to check rankings as if you were in another country? It's no secret that Google nowadays biases the search results based on your IP or GSM (this is what they call "geolocation"), which sometimes hampers your rankings check.
Now, here is the deal. There is an unassuming yet powerful parameter in Google that you can leverage to disguise your queries as if coming from another country. I'm talking about Google's "gl" parameter that you can simply add to your search query URL and hence beat Google's geolocation.
To learn how to make use of the "gl" parameter, please, read our recent post on StayOnSearch.Com. Besides, the parameter is now supported in our keyword tracking tool, Rank Tracker.
P.S. Stay tuned for the launch of the huge new backlink source for SEO SpyGlass! We are running final in-house tests .

Every savvy SEO knows that the overall success of an SEO campaign is not measured by PageRank or site rankings, and neither is it measured by conversions. It is estimated according to the ROI, which is Return on Investment.
About the last stage of the sales cycle, that precedes ROI, is CONVERSION. Conversion means getting the prospect to perform a certain action on your website, for example, to download a whitepaper, request a free quote or place an order.
Therefore, it's critical that the visitors who come to your site actually convert. In other words, even if you drive hoards of traffic to your website, but those people do not turn into customers - consider your SEO campaign a failure. Read more »

Three weeks ago we published a post where we looked
How to Choose a Domain Name with SEO in Mind. Part 1: Brand vs Keywords.
We were aiming for a happy SEO medium between brandable and keyword-rich domains.
Now it's time to take a closer look beyond the "dot" part of your domain – i.e. choose a domain extension.
