How do we make all the interwebs faster? There’s a lot to think about with our websites aside beyond all the nifty and cool things we can do to create better user experiences.

The other day I wrote about why Some Traffic Just Sucks. Now I’d like to talk to you about “good traffic.” It’s the stuff that people pay big bucks for. It’s not just traffic for the sake of more traffic, though. It’s really purpose-driven traffic. What does that mean? Why do people come to a … Read More

Today I’m going to talk to you about traffic and why “just more traffic” is a lame endeavor. Yep. I said it. Traffic for the sake of traffic is a near-fruitless venture. If you live in the States then, surely, you’ve gone to large shopping malls; you’ve gone to Black Friday events, where people are … Read More

I’ve heard a lot of talk that WordCamps are growing stale and that’s giving rise to alternative conferences. The ‘stale’ bit might be true, to an extent.

Depending on who you talk to, you’ll get the line that your keyword rankings do or don’t matter. Annoyingly rankings ARE important.
