What's Love got to do with it!!

Happy Valentine's day to all my North American friends. Today is the day to celebrate love but if you don't mind, I would like to vent for just a moment of your time.

It's amazing to me how some people seem that they never do any wrong. You see, our TSO (TrafficSeekerOnline) System and TrafficSeeker Software work. It works better than people imagine. Combined with the SEO (search engine optimization) Analyzer and the submission tool, an increase in ranking is inevitable if done correctly. We supply tips to our clients and answers to many of our frequenly asked questions. We give them all the SEO tools necessary to get their site ranked very high.

So why are we at fault when they don't see results? As I ponder this question with a cup of freshly brewed coffee while sitting by the fireplace it dawns on me with 2 simple words. They Quit! The SEO playing field is a fun game and as with any game, if you let your guard down, you lose. I can name 2 things that make all the difference in the SEO game:

1) Consistency
2) Determination

Consistent tweaking of your site. Consistent submitting of your site. Consistent linking of your site. Consistent analyzing of your site....etc. I think you get the point. The weak players give up fast when results are not seen after a month or even a day (this leaves me flabbergasted). The strong players consistently keep increasing their SEO knowledge and fine tune their site to make it highly search engine friendly.

On the flip side, we love testimonials because someone actually had to take the time to write to us and let us know how we've helped one part of their business succeed online. As I've watched these clients grow over the year it comes clear to me on how consistent and determined they were to make the TSO System and TrafficSeeker Software work for them.

Oh, there we go again, those 2 words:, Consistent and Determined. Please folks, those two words make the difference. Live by them and watch your ranking soar!

Thanks for letting me vent on a day of Love. Until next time.....

P.S. Our newly revamped site is now available for viewing. Let us know what you think.

The Bare Minimum

Many times I receive emails in regards to:

"I'm using the TSO System, I'm getting a decent ranking, but I'm not getting any sales! Why?"

As I pry into the reasons why this could be, I always come to the same conclusion. Their site is not a user friendly website. Actually, many of them are eye sores. I guess it bothers me even more because I've taken web designing courses and I do have a tendency to be overly critical on some things especially the designs of web sites. I can tell right away what needs to be fixed and how a few little adjustments can drastically improve your visitors experience (and your experience when they finally start buying your products).

Online entreprenuers go into business to make money. They might have the best product that everyone wants but with no website curb appeal, no one will buy the product. It's all about first impression.

If I'm stepping on some toes here and you know that your site needs improvement, what can you do? Here's a few tips:

1) If you don't know HTML, learn's one of the easiest programming languages to learn.

2) Use a editor like Frontpage. In combination with your new knowledge of HTML, working with Frontpage will be a breeze.

3) Purchase some already designed Web Templates. I took the liberty to give web designers some already packaged web templates available at This will help out tremendously and give you that professional look.

4) Find some web pages that really catch your eye and analyze/write down why this web page really stirs you. Design your site around your analysis.

5) Find a web designer that knows web designing. I say this because I've dealt with "web designers" who don't know one thing about designing. So, they take your hard earned money and you still don't have the look you want. Even though we don't advertise web designing (not yet a least), we do designing for those who are interested. Prices start at $200 and up. Please contact me if you're interested.

I could go on with about the technical aspect of what makes a good website such as non-frames vs. frames, equal white space, jpg. vs. bmp., what enhances or hurts a site, the use of graphics, alt attributes, etc....but I'll leave that for another day. If you would like for me to speak on some of these things in future blogs, please leave your comments and let me know.

Okay, my rant is over, time to take a coffee break.

Until next time.....
