Powerful posts 12 August 2007

There are some fantastic resources out there if you know where to look. Here I will share some great articles I have recently come across in my online travels.

Maki from Dosh Dosh wrote an article entitled ‘How to advertise your website or business: 8 paid advertising models‘. If you are interested in understanding the options open to you when it comes to advertising your site, this article is a good introduction.

Jason Neuman asks whether you are checking your site’s appearance in different screen resolutions. This post is complementary to my article entitled ‘Do you know what your site looks like?‘ – remember that what you see may not be what others see!

Jonathan-C. Phillips shares yet another great article on his redesigned blog, Smart Wealthy Rich, entitled ‘Make your visitors feel at home‘- ensuring your visitors feel comfortable and relaxed on your website is key to encouraging user retention and involvement.

If keywords and search engine optimisation confuses you, check out Mani Karthik‘s article about keyword optimisation over at Blogging Tips. Regardless of the type of site you run, you will find this post useful if the world of SEO sends your brain into a spin!

Courtney Tuttle makes yet another appearance, this time with an article entitled ‘12 ways to get people hooked on your site‘. Getting people addicted and curious about your site is essential for long term success. This article is complementary to my post ‘Your online community should be a drug‘.

Leo Babauta from North x East shares a great article telling us why opportunities are so important, and 12 places to look for them. The article is focussed on bloggers but I think it has a relevance for all websites.

Skellie from Skelliewag wrote a fantastic article, interestingly named ‘Hansel and Gretel link building‘. Complementary to my link building series (I, II, III, IV), this article will really help give your link building campaign direction and focus.

Very useful resources, thank you for pointing them out. I really need to start advertising if I’m going to continue to grow.
