  When it comes to small businesses, SEO has no deficiency of advice. Just like any topic in style, there’s a lot of imprudent advice.

What Is SEO / Search Engine Optimization? - Rubix.


Rubix.

What Is SEO (search engine optimization)? SEO stands for “search engine optimization.” It is the process of getting traffic from the “free,” “organic,” “editorial” or “natural” search results on search engines. All major search engines such as Google, Bing and Yahoo have primary search results, where web pages and other content such as videos or local listings are …

Why You Still Need Keyword Research

by Shannon Young @

As search engines become more advanced, stuffing a website full of keywords will no longer produce a high Google ranking. That doesn’t mean, however, that you should tear up your Excel spreadsheets (whew). Keyword research is still an important part of the complete breakfast that is a modern SEO strategy. Here’s why! The Benefits of Keyword Research Most people never look past the first search engine results page (SERP) that shows up after their query. In order to capture organic search traffic, it’s crucial that your website ranks highly in the results. Although Google is getting better at understanding user intent and context, search engine algorithms still match query keywords with website content in order to generate the most relevant results for their users. That means that if your website is optimized for the right keywords, you are still more likely to rank highly on SERPs. Here’s a simplified example: Your mom’s birthday is coming up, and you want to buy her some beautiful homemade chocolates as a present. So, you type “artisan chocolate gift box” into Google. Out of all the chocolatiers in your city, only those whose websites use the words “artisan chocolate” and “gift box” will likely show up at the top of the search results. It’s crucial to know exactly which keywords people are using when they are trying to find your product so you can match your content accordingly. How to Do Great Keyword Research: The Basics There are two factors that affect the impact of any given keyword on traffic to your website. 1. Search Volume How many people search for this keyword at all? 2. Competition How many other websites are incorporating this keyword into their content as well? A high search volume means the potential traffic to your site is high. However, keywords with high search volume also tend to have lots of websites vying for top rankings. The trick is to find really specific keyword phrases (also called “long tail keywords”) that have decent volume and low competition so you have the best chance of ranking for them. Does this sound exciting? Pause here and check out our step-by-step guide to long tail keyword research. If you’re ready for a more advanced look at keyword research, press on! How to Do Great Keyword Research: A Deeper Dive The SEO gurus at Moz have gone one step further and put together their own mathematical formula that calculates the potential usefulness of any keyword based on four factors. Two we’ve already seen: 1. Volume 2. Competition/Keyword Difficulty And two more that go a little further: 3. Keyword Opportunity: If you actually type the keyword into a search engine, what opportunities are available on the resulting SERP? Let’s say you wanted to write a blog post about the best workout clothes. You might think Lululemon would be a good keyword. But wait! What happens when you Google Lululemon? Almost the entire SERP is dominated by Lululemon’s own website, the knowledge graph sidebar, and their branded social media accounts. No matter how great your article is, there isn’t room for it to rank against a powerful brand. As an aside, if you want your own website to have sweet subheadings and appear in the knowledge graph, check out our post on data-rich snippets, semantic markup, and schema.org. 4. Importance: How important is a keyword to your client (i.e. the person who knows the most about their own business)? Business owners have a unique understanding of their market, and sometimes they’ll know that a certain keyword or phrase is important to their customers, even if it’s not showing up on traditional keyword research engines like Google’s keyword planner. Just also be aware of ‘ego queries’, which may be more industry competitors search each other rather than customers. We love cold, hard data but it’s also important to listen to people (as this post from Search Engine Land points out). Keyword Research is Awesome, But it’s Not a Magic Bullet The take home message today is that keyword research is still an important way to improve the SERP ranking of your website. Just remember, there are over 200 different factors affecting Google rankings. To supplement your awesome keyword research, make sure you are thinking about semantic markup, 10x content, and other factors that improve your website’s ranking. Agree? Disagree? Think keyword research is dead? We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!

Reverse Engineering the Yelp Review Filter Algorithm

by Kevin Callen @ SeeYouSEO Search Engine Optimization

Yelp Review Filter Has Significantly Damaged (and Helped?) Local Businesses

We have heard from a very large number of disgruntled local companies that have been negatively impacted by the Yelp review filter.  The typical story is:

    We got a bad review on Yelp.
    We asked our clients to post (hopefully, positive) reviews on Yelp.
    The good reviews get filtered and are not displayed.
    Web searchers only see the bad review(s).
    We are losing business.

In an open forum like Yelp or Google+, there is no validation of legitimacy.   Would the bad reviews pass arbitration?  How many reviews are actually legitimate?  Who knows?  It really does not matter.  Open review forums are here to stay.  These forums do hurt legitimate businesses when targeted by false, fake or exaggerated reviews with a negative agenda.  At the same token, the Yelp review filter has ...

7 Powerful Social Media Strategies You Need to Know Now!

Use These 7 Strategies to Master Social Media 1. Find Out Where Your Audience Is There are many different popular social media platforms on the web. Keep in  mind that when you’re first starting out, it’s not a good idea to jump in and try to master all of them. Focus only on the one or two main social sites that your audience tends to inhabit. Take the time to research and find out where your customers and potential customers are spending the majority of their time. Nearly everyone is on Facebook so that’s a logical place to start. You should also consider other sites such as Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, Instagram, Pinterest and others.  You do not have to take part in ALL of them. Make the most efficient use of your time only on the social media sites that your audience tends to gravitate to. 2. Building Authority Building your authority on social media platforms is essential. Help people by answering any questions they may have related to your industry or company. For instance, you can use Twitter to find people curious about subjects related to your product or service using Twitter search filters. Then, simply take a few […]

Should I Use Facebook Boosted Posts to Promote My Business?

by alpinewebmedia @ Vermont Web Design, Web Hosting and Development

What are the pros and cons of Facebook Boosted Posts? Facebook has lessened organic reach and paid options are pretty much the way you reach more people. Facebook wants you to use the “Boost Post” button. As a matter of fact, they really try hard to get you to do it. First, you’ll get these Facebook boosted posts messages directly on your Facebook Business page if you have a post that’s getting a fairly decent amount of views. Soon after, you’ll also get a similar message in your email inbox, courtesy of Facebook. If you’re like most people, you will see this as a sign that your post is performing really well and by boosting it, it could stand a chance of going viral. It certainly is tempting to hit the Boost Post button at this point and sit back, waiting for your Facebook page to blossom with new found popularity. Unfortunately that doesn’t happen very often, if at all. When you boost your post you will get traffic as long as you pay, but the moment you stop paying, your traffic will eventually die down. Do Facebook boosted posts have any benefit at all? Yes. If you have a […]

5 Website Development Experts You Need on Your Team

by Bryan Smith @

Building a website is very much like building a house. It takes a lot of planning and preparation and requires a crew of skilled workers to build it. When done right, they both result in something that is built to last and perform. If not, they can fall flat. When I hear about website developments or redesigns, I often see the same mistake happen repeatedly—neglect to hire a full crew of experts. Like a home build, a website requires many different skill sets to build it properly. I believe this mistake happens not because of a desire to cut corners, but because of a lack of clarity around the value each crew member brings to the project. So, while it may not be exhaustive, here’s a list of some of the key experts (in my opinion) to have on your website development or redesign team and how to get the most out of their role: 1. The Web Designer This person is responsible for the look and layout of the website. They are similar to a graphic designer in their creativity, but they design specifically for online functionality. This person will create wireframes and mockups to show what the site will look like. They are also responsible for creating the design elements and selecting the imagery to implement into the website. The value of this person is obvious. At a minimum, they should deliver a visually appealing website that aligns with the organizational brand and modern design trends. To get even more out of this role: Make sure the designer creates mock-ups of mobile and tablet versions for your site as well as a desktop version. Moving forward, the mobile design will likley be more crucial to business success online than desktop. Ensure the Web Designer knows the target audience, the business outcomes you expect from your site, and the most important calls to action so that the site is designed to support these priorities. 2. The SEO Expert A critical role in website development is that of the Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Expert (yes, I may be a bit biased here). Without this role, a beautiful and perfectly developed website might not ever be seen. This would be like building a magnificent custom home and never sending out the invites to your Open House party. The SEO Expert provides valuable guidance on everything from information architecture to content to technical setup to analytics, and is responsible for how the website performs to meet business goals once it’s launched. To get the most out of this role: Involve the SEO Expert from the very beginning when you’re first planning your website. Make sure this person works closely with the other team members to ensure SEO best practices are in place so the site can deliver on the desired business outcomes. My tip is to ensure there are recurring ‘all party’ calls/meetings to check-in and discuss the website progress and avoid any work happening in silos (to avoid rework). 3. The Copywriter The Copywriter fills the pages of a website with content that is engaging and relevant to visitors. When done well, content is one of the most essential elements of a website and will play an important role in pulling people through the website, persuading them to set up an account, or compelling them to share what they’ve read with others. The Copywriter should be armed with the brand guidelines of the organization to ensure that they write in the proper ‘voice’ of the organization. To get the most out of this role: Make sure the Copywriter knows who the primary audience personas are for the website so that the content is written with the reader in mind (user intent). Provide the Copywriter with keyword/topic research and audience intent from the SEO Expert to incorporate into the content to enhance the ‘search friendliness’ of the site. Connect this person with the designer and the SEO Expert to ensure the content is laid out properly on each webpage and has the right length and word count to both read well and look great. 4. The Developer This role is what takes all the output from the other roles and turns it into a fully-functional website. The Developer will recommend a Content Management System (CMS) for the website and will complete all the necessary coding. Prior to going live, the Developer will also test the site to ensure everything is working as it’s supposed to (ex. speed, mobile, browsers) and will conduct the necessary fixes until it’s ready to go. To maximize this role: Make sure it is clear why they have selected the CMS they’ll be working on and ensure that it can be easily maintained after the site is launched or that you’ll be given training so you can update it yourself. Confirm what the ongoing costs will be for the website so there are no surprises down the road. Ensure the Developer and the SEO Expert are both involved in the analytics for the site so that you end up with reports that will track the business outcomes you specified for your site. There are often simple analytics and SEO plugins for each CMS; however, out of the box they won’t necessarily do the things that are specifically important to your business, which will make it difficult to assess whether your website is performing the way you need it to. 5. The Webmaster Every site requires ongoing monitoring and maintenance following a website development or redesign. CMS upgrades, backups, site outages, broken links, domain registrations, software updates, and changes to copy will all come up at some point, so make sure you know who will be responsible for addressing them. Sometimes companies that build websites also offer ongoing maintenance or will provide training to you or your staff. But they may also view their role as complete the second the website is launched. To set this role up for success: Make sure you’re clear on responsibilities and expectations and […]

Selecting Social Media Goals & Metrics

by Bryan Smith @

I sat in a room with a businessman who had reached his breaking point with his under-performing sales team. When asked what he thought the solution was to boost sales, he threw his hands up in frustration and said: “Better get on the Tweeter.” True story. That whole scenario is cringe-worthy, I know. But believe it or not, this social media rookie was on the right track in one critical way…his goal. I doubt he knew how to define who his audience is and engage with them strategically on social media. Let’s be honest, he probably didn’t know how to tweet, post, or tag. But he did understand exactly what he wanted to achieve by engaging on social media—increasing his sales. And because he was crystal clear about his goal, he would then be able to measure whether his social media tactics were hitting the mark. “Only when you’re clear on what you want to achieve will you know what to measure to track your progress.” Measurement can pose a whole new set of challenges for marketers who need to demonstrate the value of social media. So what appears to commonly get in the way and make the task of measuring ROI for social media tricky at best? Here are a few of the biggest challenges that we come across in the market: Overwhelming data: social marketers are overwhelmed with data. With so many social media networks and each network having its own analytics and set of metrics, it’s no wonder marketers are coming up with a fragmented picture of their efforts. Goals & Metric Selection: In addition to excessive data, social marketers also aren’t great at defining goals for social media and selecting the metrics that will help them measure success. Lack of Analytics Training: Social media marketers are also typically not trained in web analytics and don’t know how to properly tag social media campaigns so that they roll up in web analytics in an organized fashion, a crucial part of proving the impact of social. According to Social Media Examiner, “88% of marketers want to know how to measure their return on investment for social media activities.” So the interest is there. But is it translating into better tracking of KPIs and reporting on ROI? Not yet. A CMO Survey found that “only 20.3% [of marketers] are able to prove the impact [of social media] quantitatively.” If you’re in the other 80%, a good starting point is to choose a couple business goals that can be supported through social media and then track the KPIs associated with those goals. Bluetrain recently presented this list of common business goals and the corresponding KPIs at the 2017 iMEDIA Social Media Conference which will help get you on your way. 10 Business Goal Examples for Social Media: Business Goal Example KPIs 1)    Brand Awareness Impressions, reach, amplification1 2)    Website Traffic Number of site sessions, pageviews, avg duration 3)    Community Building Engagement2 & amplification metrics 4)    Event Promotion Number of event RSVPs, amplification 5)    Customer Feedback & Reviews Number of customer reviews, comments, posts, PMs 6)    Customer Support Number of requests, sentiment, response time 7)    Lead Generation Clicks, landing page engagement, form submissions 8)    Content Promotion Amplification, pageviews, inbound links 9)    Sales and Revenue Number of transactions, revenue, ROI, avg value 10) Product Promotion Number of free trials, product inquiries, product-related comments, posts, PMs 1 amplification metrics would include shares, retweets, repins etc. 2 engagement would include likes, comments, replies, favourites etc. In addition to clarifying goals and metrics, using tools like Google Analytics and the analytics tied to the major social media platforms are a great way to track some of the KPIs indicated above. More than likely, if you need to display ROI to management, the next step will be to setup effective reporting to clearly communicate the performance on the selected goals. However, before getting ahead of yourself with reporting, first simply choose one or more goals from the list above and start measuring, and you’ll be well on your way to demonstrating Social ROI, on ‘the Tweeter’, or on any other social media platform your business leverages. You’ll be amazed at the results you can achieve once you’re clear on the business goal(s) of your social efforts.

Rank Higher on Google Search with Mobile-First Indexing

by Shauna Heryford @

Mobile has been a key focus of Google’s for quite some time now. It used to be that when consumers prepared to make a buying decision they would flip through the phonebook to find listed companies before choosing one to do business with. That type of research was replaced by internet research, and now the majority of consumers rely on their mobile devices for their online activities. The comScore graph below shows how the number of mobile users surpassed desktop users in 2014. In 2015, the number of mobile searches also surpassed desktop. Google’s mobile-first focus is simply adapting to this global trend. Google’s search algorithms have been focused on mobile internet activity for several years now, introducing a large mobile-friendly push in April 2015 where companies saw a boost if they were deemed mobile-friendly. However, the latest mobile-first indexing goes further to help connect mobile users with the online content they are looking for. What is Mobile-First Indexing? To answer this question, we must first understand how Google works. In simple terms, Google collects information on every webpage and puts it in a massive catalog, also called an index. It uses this index to formulate and display the search results that come up when users submit a query, also known as a Google search. Until recently, Google has primarily collected data and viewed webpages through the eyes of desktop users first and mobile users second. However, in November 2016, Google announced that they will be changing the way they determine search results by moving to mobile-first indexing. In other words, this means Google’s algorithm will no longer base its rankings off your desktop version of the webpage, but rather will use the mobile version. Now, the content showing for your website on mobile devices is the first thing Google will use to determine search results. The desktop version of your website is still important, but it is secondary to the mobile version. Simply put, a webpage with less mobile content and content that is not mobile-friendly will not rank as well. “Mobile-First Indexing means Google’s algorithm will no longer base its rankings off your desktop version of the webpage, but rather will use the mobile version.” Is Your Website Prepared for Mobile-First Indexing? Not only does your website have to be mobile-friendly across devices in how it looks and can be navigated, which is where having a responsive web design comes into play, but the content has to be present too—if it’s not, it will not rank as well. It was quite typical in the past to have less content present on your mobile site, however, this now needs to be re-evaluated. If your site is missing content, your site could now be missing from those search results! How to Improve Mobile SEO? There are three ways to implement a mobile website: 1. Responsive web design This is when your HTML and URLs will stay the same across both sites, regardless of how the user is accessing your content (desktop, mobile phone, tablet, etc.). It will respond to whatever screen size the user is using and display your content in the most user-friendly way. Responsive web design is Google’s favourite design pattern and your best strategy for effective mobile SEO. 2. Dynamic serving This is when you use the same URL regardless of the device, but generate a different version of HTML, meaning a different website design and content for each device type based on what the server knows about the user’s browser. The impact of mobile-first indexing comes into play if your desktop site is significantly different from your mobile site, and your mobile site has less content. You want to make sure your mobile content is optimized and user-friendly. 3. Separate URLs This is when you have different HTML and URLs for each device. Google will try to detect the user’s device and then redirect them to the appropriate page for that specific device. If your website is using dynamic serving or separate URLs, you have to make sure that you’re not missing important content on your mobile site that could interfere with its SEO. You also want to avoid adding large amounts of HTML content markup that isn’t relevant to the specific content of each page on your mobile site. HTML markup on content would include headings, lists, tables, anchors, images, and quotations. Sometimes these elements will make a mobile site less user-friendly. Mobile Optimization If your desktop site is completely mobile-friendly—meaning it has a responsive design, is easy to use on mobile, and has all your key content—then you have nothing to worry about. Google will index your content across both versions of the website the same and without issue. If you’re developing a brand new site, design for mobile content, usability and speed first and your desktop version second. Make sure everything works on your mobile version, including forms, audio and visual, and other key functions. Google also considers a positive or negative user experience when producing search results. Of course, always make sure your content has been optimized for search engine results, use structured data and think local search! Use this mobile-friendly test from Google to see how your website ranks. After entering the URL you want to test, this tool will let you know whether the page is mobile-friendly or not (keep in mind, it isn’t looking at what content you have, it’s just looking to see if what you have is mobile-friendly), and how to fix it if necessary. To do a site-wide mobility test, you can go to your site in Google Search Console > Search Traffic > Mobile Usability. Is your company’s website mobile friendly? If so, does the mobile version have all the same key content as your desktop version? If not, it could be doing a lot more damage than just creating a frustrating experience for users…it could be deterring them from finding you all together. If you have questions or need assistance to ensure both your […]

21 Questions with Matt, Bluetrain’s Digital Marketing Strategist

by Roxanne Bonilla @

Bluetrain is proud to introduce Matthew Brown, our new Digital Marketing Strategist. Learn about Matt’s experience in the digital marketing world, his lovely family, and his hilarious hate for olives. 1. RB: Where did you grow up? MB: Sherwood Park. RB: Have you been here your whole life? MB: I moved away when I was 18-ish, lived in Calgary for a while and Victoria for two and a half years, then back to Edmonton to go back to school. RB: What did you go to school for? MB: I went to MacEwan for Digital Arts & Media 2. RB: What did you like most about growing up in Sherwood Park? MB: Small community feel with connection to the big city. RB: Did you get into the city lots? MB: Yeah, I experienced Whyte Ave when I was 14 years old. My friends and I used to bus down there every weekend in the summer. 3. RB: Do you have any siblings? MB: Yes, one sister. RB: Is she in Sherwood Park? MB: No, she is in Morges, Switzerland. RB: So exotic! Have you been? MB: No, my daughter has though! RB: Did she like it there? MB: Yes! She spent a summer there. They travelled all through Switzerland, Germany, and Italy. My daughter’s favourite was Milan. RB: Why’s that? MB: Mostly the shopping. 4. RB: What words would your family use to describe you? MB: Probably stoic, quiet, calm, and reserved. 5. RB: What is your family like? MB: Evolving as my kids get older. They used to be so quiet but they’re coming out of their shells now. We joke, tease each other, and laugh. We’re a family that spends a lot of time together. 6. RB: When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you became a grown up? MB: A firefighter. RB: Did you ever tour a hall? MB: I did not, but one of the first places I lived after getting married was in the river valley close to the fire fighter’s training hall. RB: So you were close. MB: Funny enough, we’d see them out there practicing when we walked around the neighbourhood… Along with all the housewives sitting on their front step watching the guys run around. 7. RB: How would you describe your family’s heritage? MB: On my side of the family, my sister and I are adopted and my father is also adopted and his two brothers were adopted too. So, we’ve always struggled with our identity because of that and I don’t know a lot about my family history…. English-Scottish I would guess. My wife is also adopted! Our children are our first blood relatives. Her background is primarily Scottish, Swedish, and Norwegian. RB: Have you travelled over there? MB: No, one day we’ll tour that area though! Scotland for sure and England because it’s England. 8. RB: What made you decide to come work with Bluetrain? MB: The thing that attracted me to Bluetrain is that it was a different take on an agency—more focused and specific, and in an area that I think has a lot of potential and opportunity. 9. RB: Do you have your own personal blog? MB: I do not, but I used to do a lot of writing! I was part of a user group for digital signage which was part of the Digital Signage Expo Advisory Group. I was part of their End User Council. There would be a monthly question that I would write an answer for. RB: Are there any questions you remember that stood out? MB: None that stand out specifically but once a year the expo would put on their annual conference and I’d get to meet the other advisory members. It was neat to hear from them that they were reading my articles and getting a lot out of them. These experts coming to me and telling me how much they enjoyed it. RB: Very cool! 10. RB: What do you think about the world of digital marketing? MB: I am a firm believer in the opportunity of digital marketing, but I am also an advocate for being responsible with it! I think it’s really easy for companies and brands to get caught up in the hype and I think it’s important—especially for agencies—not to take advantage of that. RB: How many years have you been working in the industry? MB: Almost 17. RB: When did you decide to get into digital instead of firefighting? MB: When I went back to school I actually wanted to be a photographer but there were some prerequisites I had to take first. During the prerequisite was when I found out about the digital media program, so I caught the digital marketing bug in the prerequisites. 11. RB: What do you take away from your past work experience that you’ll apply to your current position at Bluetrain? MB: Having worked in both agencies and as part of an internal team, I have empathy on both sides. I want to bring an understanding from a client perspective, what their needs are and what their pain points are as well. 12. RB: What is your favorite food? MB: That’s a tough one. I like a lot of food! It depends really. I go through moods and swings. Right now, I would say Korean food. RB: Do you make it at home or go out to get it? MB: Mostly make it at home. My daughter is celiac so we do a lot of cooking because of that. RB: Home cooked food is the best! MB: One thing we’re discovering through this is that Asian food is really celiac-friendly! 13. RB: Speaking of food, mushrooms or olives? MB: Mushrooms. Olives are the devil’s fruit. There’s not much food I don’t like, but generally, I avoid olives. 14. RB: What do you do for fun? MB: Hang out with the fam and play soccer. Soccer has been a lifelong passion. If I could, […]

Exact Volume Restriction – Keyword Planner Jumps the Shark!

by btvbill @ Vermont Web Design, Web Hosting and Development

Google’s Keyword Planner, a once useful tool for the general public, has now been hobbled and is for the most part, useless. If you have an AdWords account and haven’t bought any ads recently, here is what you will be greeted with: This page shows ranges for search volumes. For a more detailed view, set up and run a campaign. Like everything else Google does, ultimately, it benefits Google. Sorry, the truth hurts. Now, Google wants you to start paying for AdWords campaigns if you want to use the original Keyword Planner tool. The Average Monthly searches, as indicated above display some very vague data ranges. Practically useless for those who research long tail keywords for search engine optimization (SEO) purposes. Here’s what Cassie at Google has to say about the issue: We recently made a change to Keyword Planner that shows search volume data ranges based on spend and how you use the tool. This change aims to prevent “bots” from submitting an overwhelming number of searches in Keyword Planner, which was slowing down the tool and occasionally causing errors that prevented people from using the tool. We’ve heard your feedback that this limited view of search volume makes […]

What is Off-Site SEO?

by MattCallen @ SeeYouSEO Search Engine Optimization

Tying it all Together

It is important, when considering how to optimize your website for search engine ranking, to recognize the difference between on-site SEO, vs. off-site SEO.  In the last blog we talked about what we do on the website itself to improve your search engine rankings, or On-Site SEO. As a Northern Virginia SEO company, SeeYouSEO works with local businesses to improve their Google, Bing, and Yahoo rankings and help them get more clients and customers. This week we are focusing on Off-Site or Off-Page SEO.

 

There is a common misconception that SEO is only about optimizing your website. In reality the majority of SEO work relies on Off-Site SEO.  Once your website is fully optimized with the proper keywords, alt tags, and headings, you can direct your attention to building your presence online on a wider plane.

21 Questions with Roxanne, Bluetrain’s Content Strategist

by Shauna Heryford @

I’m excited to play 21 Questions this week with Roxanne Bonilla, the newest content strategist and member to the Bluetrain team. Learn about Roxanne, her love of Edmonton, and why she transitioned from fitness to communications. SH: Where did you grow up? RB: I was born and raised in Edmonton – West Edmonton to be exact. I now live on the south side. SH: Does that mean you were a West Edmonton Mall ‘mallrat’? RB: (Laughing) Yes it does! I spent time there when it didn’t look as nice as it does now. SH: What did you like most about growing up in Edmonton? RB: Definitely the people – my family and friends. This is why I have stayed. I also love the variety in Edmonton – there is always something to do! SH: Any siblings? RB: Yes, I have one brother – a year younger. SH: What words would your family use to describe you? RB: Hmmmm, I think they’d say energetic and goofy! I’m usually the one keeping the conversation flowing in my family. SH: What is your family like? RB: We’re pretty close. I live a few blocks away from my Mom’s and we do regular Sunday night dinners. SH: When you were younger, what did you want to be when you grew up? RB: Wanted to be a marine biologist (loves the water and dolphins) and nutritionist. SH: Hmmm, I imagine tough to be a marine biologist and still live around here! RB: (Laughs) Yes! SH: How did you end up going into fitness? RB: Fitness is a big part of my family’s culture – my mom and dad actually met at the gym! I like being physically active and always enjoyed sports growing up – I played soccer, did cheerleading, skiing and snowboarding, was a lifeguard, and danced competitively. SH: What made you leave fitness for PR and Communications? RB: The work hours in fitness were are all over the place.  I was exposed to communications doing social media for Backside Tours and liked the idea of combining the structure of an office setting with the creativity of writing. SH: Do you have your own personal blog? RB: I started one years ago but haven’t uploaded anything in a long time! It’s in the “positive news” category (kind of like Upworthy). My first piece was inspired by a man named Joseph who would sit on his walker at a four-way stop close to my old place and smile and wave to people driving by. His dedication to spreading positivity was adorable and I would always give him the biggest wave back! When I was moving I went to say goodbye to him and let him know that he always brightened my day with his waves. SH: What do you think about the world of digital marketing? RB: Fascinating, with technology these days it is one of the most effective ways of getting your message out there! SH: What do you take away from your past work experience that you’ll apply to your current position at Bluetrain? RB: Well, editing for sure since I’ll be working with copywriters. Persona creation, market research and understanding the target audience I’ll also use. I enjoy working on communication and marketing plans, planning and strategizing, and looking at and considering all angles. SH: Favorite Food? RB: Pizza! There can be so much variety to this dish! A Friday night ritual at my house is ordering a Massimo pizza from the Italian Centre and enjoying a night off from cooking. SH: We have much debate over this next question – mushrooms or olives, which would you pick? RB: Both! SH: What do you do to relax? RB: Epsom salt baths (multiple times a week!), yoga, and long walks during the summer. SH: What is your guilty pleasure? RB: Reality TV like The Bachelor/Bachelorette. SH: Me too! Did you know we do a Bachelorette pool? RB: Oh my, this is a dream job! SH: Favourite book or movie? RB: I can tell you both! Book is The Alchemist and movie is Out Cold (it’s a snowboarding cult classic). I know it word-for-word from watching it on bus trips home from the mountain. SH: What bus do you take? RB: Either Backside Tours to Revelstoke or Fernie, or the Magic Bus to Marmot.  I also get rides with friends that have bigger vehicles than I do, and sometimes even fly to places like Kelowna to ride Big White and Silver Star – it’s safer than driving! SH: Do you play volleyball or squash? This is a mandatory question from Bryan we ask everyone new. RB: I’m terrible at volleyball, please don’t make me do it! I would let you guys down for sure! I like squash – it is fun and a good workout. I haven’t played in a while though. SH: Great – Bryan is always happy to have someone to play squash with! SH: Mountains or Beach? RB: Mountains for sure! SH: Tea or Coffee? What is your caffeine fix? RB: BOTH – I couldn’t live without either!  What I pick depends on how tired I am and if I got enough sleep. Over the past few years I have become more of a coffee connoisseur – my boyfriend is into coffee and now I’m a coffee snob! Kicking Horse is one of my favourites! SH: I’ll have to give it a try as I love coffee! SH: Another important question – cupcakes or cookies? RB: Cookies! They are probably my second favourite food. Just like pizza, there is so much variety to them! There are even breakfast cookies (laughs). SH: You’re lucky as Confetti Sweets is close by so we have it quite a bit! RB: Oh good I love Confetti Sweets! SH: Speaking of cupcakes or cookies – when is your birthday? RB: April 25th SH: Any pet peeves we should know about? RB: A big one for me is when people don’t wear helmets. I always harass my […]

Frustrated With Your Website and Internet marketing?

by btvbill @ Vermont Web Design, Web Hosting and Development

As the web becomes more complicated and crowded it’s easy to see why many business owners become frustrated with their website, social media and Internet marketing plans. Read below or contact us now at 802-233-3261 if you’d like to kick your web marketing campaign back into high gear. So why are so many business owners frustrated with their websites and web marketing? Here’s why: Back in the late 1990’s all you needed was a website. You could literally “set it and forget it”. Those were the glory days and early beginnings of websites. Most businesses didn’t have a clue about websites or email and getting a first page ranking in Yahoo (the number one search engine in pre-Google days) was relatively easy. Fast forward to 2017 where it seems everyone is on the web, fighting tooth and nail for the coveted first page search results in Google.  Social media evolved and everyone rushed to Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, etc., in an attempt to market their businesses online. Your Facebook Page Organic Posts is Actually Seen By Only 2% of Your Fans from Hubspot: A study from Edgerank Checker found that between February 2012 and March 2014, organic reach for the average […]

For those of you who believe Google is taking over the world, this is one more indication that you are right. Google Glass is a revolutionary invention (of eyeglasses) that takes the ease and convenience of computer usage to whole new level…on your face. The small screen sits on the side of a bar coming out from an earpiece, so it does not obstruct your view. They can be worn while doing other things and the screen is activated on voice command, similar to the voice command technology on smart phones.

Was Your WordPress Website Hacked?

by btvbill @ Vermont Web Design, Web Hosting and Development

Nothing is worse than a customer searching for your website, in a Google search and then seeing the dreaded words in the search results: “This website may have been hacked” If that’s the case then you had better start looking carefully at your website. In this post, we’re concentrating on WordPress websites. Although WordPress is the most popular content management system in the world (making it a prime target for hackers), the problem is equally an issue for Joomla, Drupal, ModX and other such CMS websites. They are all targets. The main issue stems from improper care and feeding of your website. In the days when “webmasters” ruled the land, only people with the knowledge to code and maintain websites had to deal with these issues. When you have someone properly qualified to maintain your website on a daily basis, it’s like having a security guard at the door. However in this day and age the security guard at the door may be someone assigned to light web content management tasks and Facebook posts, etc., rather than a trained professional web expert. In fact, the hackers are thrilled and have a much easier job of hacking a website, when there […]
