I’m one of those who believes that you can always learn something from your mistakes or things that go wrong. In fact sometimes you don’t know how to get to the right solution without failing miserably in the process of getting there.
SEO is one of those things where you will fail the first several tries. It’s ok. A great example is on page SEO. Meaning everything from Title tags, to H1 headers, content etc. Chances are you will not get the perfect combination of all of these with the “best” use of your keyword the first time around. So if you are wondering, well what can I do each month to improve my site…one thing is to try/test different on page SEO variations.
So technically your first attempts are not a “failure”. Thus every change you make can lead to improvement. You have to try to get anywhere to begin with, and you have to understand that you will not reach your goal of page 1 in the first few months and there is plenty of work you can do to help you get there over time.
If at first you don’t succeed try and try again!

Spring just invokes the need to clean (or maybe that’s just me). It’s also a great time to organize or reorganize yourself. Organizing all-together is an opportunity to become more efficient and with most online tools, the name of the game is efficiency and the ease by which you can communicate, follow and listen.
I recently took some time to organize my RSS streams. While I already have everything organized in folders through my outlook (which is the email program that I use), I also have a Google Account. To me efficiency means not having to go to too many sources for too much information. And so, when I come across great posts not only do I share it and leave a comment, I also subscribe to the blogs RSS feeds.
As I took a closer look at the Google applications I started to explore all that it has to offer. I recommend for you to do the same, especially if you find yourself trying to remember what that cool site was that you recently came across. While there are other tools out there (like Feed Reader) that allow to organize website subscriptions, I find Google tools particularly helpful because (a) it’s free, and (b) you’ll have an account through which you can check your email, your site analytics, and so much more.
Check it out. What kind of tools are you using? Which would you recommend?
