Can you believe WUL celebrated its fourth birthday earlier this year? I didn’t make a big deal about it as I’ve done in years past, because… well, I don’t know why.
But I should have, because in a world where blogs come and go (as so much else does), I’m proud that WUL is still around. Four years may as well be four decades in our world of instant gratification!
Those of you who’ve been with WUL from the beginning have seen how it’s changed. The only thing that is more or less the same is the theme I started with (and I love it too much to let it go… for now…) and which, incidentally, influenced the look and feel of my business site once that was set up. There’s just something about the little bird that I love, and that I don’t want to let go of.Blogging, Shonali Burke | Tags: blog survey, waxing and waning | Comments (17)

I’ve been a web marketer for a long, long time. Having built my first web site (DVD Verdict) in April 1999 and managed one of the larger SEO teams in the country from 2006 to 2009, it’s safe to say I’ve seen many changes in web marketing over time.
Interestingly enough, there is one thing that has never changed – not one lick over the previous 14 years – and that is keyword research.
Finding keywords is one of the most important (and most overlooked) aspects of web marketing. I’m not going to try to convince you why doing keyword research is important. That’s a blog post for another day.
Today, I want to help you find the right keywords. Let’s dig right in.Blogging, Communication, Guest Posts, How To, Marketing, Resources | Tags: finding keywords, Google AdWords, Google Analytics, Google Trends, Google Webmaster Tools, SEO, web marketing | Comments (27)
