    Ah, most people think of them as the “10 Suggestions” so it doesn’t much matter what they’re called.

    The following quote…

    Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
    SEM does not refer only to paid search results; SEO (included within the framework of SEM) is also a process of improving a site’s visibility by ensuring appearance on SERPs. The difference is that SEO relies on organic search results as opposed to paid search to achieve high ranking on a results page. These organic tools include making sure your website has good content (keywords) and backlinks (getting others to link back to your webpage) as well as specific HTML clues and architecture built into the site.

    …comes from here.

    Better put in something about losing belly fat, or … well… you know…
    whatever that is….

    A typical search these days leads to 40 years of wandering in the wilderness of useless information.

    SEO is a Sewerage Enforcement Officer for anyone with a septic tank.

    The following quote…

    In plain English, Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is about improving the ability of getting your website to the top of Google (and other) search results pages. This is done mainly through use of expanded keyword lists (These words are not usually viewable to the site visitors.) — which contain every synonym and related term as possible associated with one’s product(s) — and increasing the number of active links from other sites to one’s own site (also known as linkbaiting).

    A few years back, J.C. Penney was caught with their pants down for over-linkbaiting — which is tantamount to cheating, at least in the eyes of Google. Penney paid to have thousands of links to their site, from non-related and dubious websites scattered around the web, for most all their categories. Technically it’s not illegal, but messes with the organic nature of the algorithms used for Google’s results — which are meant to reveal the most popular sites toward the top, for any given search.

    GIGO (Garbage in, garbage out.)
    It all depends on the quality of your search input.

    Take for example that you wanted to locate an old Brevity strip. You remember that it was something about lumber. (This happened to show about a month ago, but you don’t remember that). In your Google search you enter:
     Brevity lumber 

    In this case, you get pretty lucky, because it’s only down to number ten in the unpaid results list. But ordinarily something like that might not show up in the first ten pages.

    Then you try this:

    site: Brevity lumber

    The result you want, goes right to the top of unpaid results (August 22, 2014).

    It’s all about learning the techniques to get what you want.

    Trouble with those “10 things” pages is it takes too long to load, especially on one of those iMoses tablets. Or maybe it’s “oyMoses”

    ‘Good news, they’re down to ten. Bad news, adultery’s still in.’
    But there’s no ‘Thou shalt not rape’ or thou shalt not keep slaves.’
    Does this make us more moral than our creator?

    “The 10 Things You Won’t Believe that God Doesn’t Want You to Do. #7 will STUN you!”
    THAT’S how Buzzfeed would title it.

    Or, “God gave Moses 10 Rules. You won’t believe what happened next!”

    Only problem is that some of those 10 things are :“thou shalt” items, not just “thou shalt not” items.
