Well it looks as if the outsourcing scammers are here! We have foreign companies trying to pretend to be the real local atlanta web experts. Do you think that the real Atlanta Web Experts and our SEO gurus are going to allow this to happen or do you think that we are going to a full court press on this keyword Atlanta Web Experts.
It's one thing to be in Atlanta and be a web expert or designer, but its another thing to try and trick companies from Atlanta, Georgia???
But wait what about there 404 and 678 number? Well anyone can get these numbers, even if they aren't from Atlanta, Georgia. But from our investigations we have found out that this three man shop posing to be the real Atlanta Web Experts are nothing more than an outsourcing scam.
SEO Lesson: Always check your primary keywords and act swiftly against those who try and take your keyword positioning.

Factors to consider when hiring a web design company
With today’s technology, more and more companies are utilizing the World Wide Web to promote their businesses. Prior to putting a website on the Internet for individuals to view, the company must first set up the website. This is where web design companies enter the picture. A web design company is hired to construct a website for an individual or company that is suitable to their tastes. There are a few factors to consider prior to settling on a specific web design company to construct your new website.
Examples of Prior Web Designs
One important factor to consider when choosing a web design company to develop a website is the type of web designs which the company has produced in the past. Many web design companies will make portfolios available for potential clients to view so that they may see the style of the web design company and determine if their finished product is what the client is looking to achieve in the way of a website. This is extremely helpful when trying to determine if the work product of the web design company is up to one’s standards.
Also pay attention to the size of clients they have worked with. Usually a smaller web design company that has done a lot of small business websites will not allow you to grow with your web design team. Making sure you have a web design team that can grow as you grow is very important. Therefore, always ask to see samples of a web design company’s prior work before signing them up to construct a website.
Estimated Completion Time
Another important factor to consider when selecting a web design company to design one’s website is what their estimated completion time may be. This is beneficial to know up front so the client can expect the finished work at a certain time. Since many individuals are using the Internet for conducting business, it is important that the client get their website up and running as soon as possible. This will also give the web design company notice that the client needs their completed product at a certain point in time and they will be less likely to push it to the side and work on other client’s projects.
Cost of Web Design Project
It is also crucial to know up front how much the completed web design project will cost the client. Since many new businesses are inundated with low cost and free websites, you need to make sure you apply the principle of "You Pay For What You Get!". Even if you are on a tight budget, it is vital to invest as much as you would in your website as you would for a TV ad, billboard, or radio spot. Just realize that your website will last a lo longer than any other form of traditional advertising. Along with the total cost of the web design project, the client should also receive a breakdown of the individual costs of the project.
What Is Included with the Total Web Design Price?
One who retains a web design company to construct their website should also ask about what items are included in the total web design cost. Some companies will include follow-up consultation in the web design price or web design help in the future. It is important to inquire about these things in the beginning so as to know what type of items they can expect with the amount that they paid for the web design.
For those clients who wish to be on the safe side and know exactly who they are dealing with, requesting references is always an available option to the client. Many times the web design company will offer references that will vouch for their professional behavior and wonderful finished product. References are a good way to weed out the bad web designers from the good ones.
Volume of Past Experience
It may also be beneficial to inquire about the company’s amount of experience. Companies that have been in business for a good many years may just have a bit more experience than newcomers to the web design scene. Although this is just one of the many factors which should be looked at with regard to hiring a web design company, it does help to sway the decision maker one way or the other with regard to hiring or not hiring a specific company to prepare a website for them.
It is also important to consider the customer service skills of the web design company. One who is paying good money to have their website designed wants to make sure they are dealing with a company that will listen to what they want and make themselves readily available to their clients. If one is considering a particular web design company that has bad customer service skills, it might be more advisable to choose a company that is more client-oriented.
There are many different web design companies one can choose from when they want to have a website designed. By considering the factors mentioned above, one can help to ensure that the company that they select to take on this important task does so in a professional, reasonably priced manner. In addition, the client should determine that the web design company has an adequate amount of experience and will produce a product that is exactly what the client is looking for.

As we’ve said previously, it is hard to get a high organic listing for keywords with geographical prefixes. By using our experience with SEO and our proprietary search engine strategies, we are now achieving a high ranking on Google for the search term web programmers atlanta.
We have also achieved a vertical ranking with Vexcom.
As you can see from the screenshot below, we occupy the #5 spot on the first page:
It is hard to get a high organic listing for a keyword like local web programmer. We have tested countless SEO strategies that have been successful with geographical prefixes like georgia web programmer, or atlanta web programmer, but it is a huge SEO task to get listed without a geographical prefix.
We have had outstanding results with the keyword Local Web Programmer (www.localwebprogrammer.net). Here is a snapshot of the results – As you can see we occupy the #1 and #2 spots on the first page:

We have been testing complex domain names for over 10 years now and have seen search engine robots modify their algorithms to adjust for domain names becoming the most valuable content.
As we know search engine spiders love relevant content and it seems as if the Google spiders put a tremendous amount of value on the domain name.
The most recent areas that we have been testing are using hyphens versus removing spaces.
The following are keywords is what we are trying to obtain high ranking for:
The domain we are working on is:

The search engine gurus are whining once again as rumor has it Google has another shake-up planned.
And, then of course, they are all still crying foul because Yahoo’s newest indexing strategy appears to be rewarding sites that…God forbid…actually focus on good content. Yes, I know, Yahoo is using the Inktomi search software and they could probably do things a little more sophisticated.
The one thing that I don’t see enough SEO folks talking about is the fact that content rules, it always has, and it does now more than ever. Forget about filters, and algos, and stemming and blah, blah, blah…create good content and everybody wins.
The sites that practiced this strategy did very well in the last Google change and I for one have seen substantial evidence to support this “good content” theory in the revamped Yahoo. Anyone can get a #1 listing in Yahoo by simply creating a page that somebody searching for certain keywords would want to read…now there’s a novel thought.
Most of the whining is coming from the so-called SEO experts who had figured out how to trick the system. Like so many things if it is simple then anyone can figure it out and the then SEO people hiding behind the curtain don’t look so brillant any more.
I went to a seminar last October that featured a so-called SEO expert. The seminar was during what the loosers in the last Google “dance” call Florida. This guy was so freaked out he couldn’t even present any material that was of value to any of the attendees. I won’t name names but this guy is supposed to be tops in the field.
Nobody would buy it but I could create a one page SEO book that would be far more useful than 90% of what is out there. Stick to good content and you will sleep peacefully at night knowing that your search results are safe.

It has been a challenge for WebXperts to get placed online for the keyword Web Experts. It started as a problem when the company became incorporated. In Gerogia their was a company called web experts that occupied the name already. We went to the drawing board and came up with WebXperts Design, Incorporated. The corporate name has been in existence for over 10 years. We have serviced a large portion of the corporate community in Atlanta, New York, and San Francisco. We have been lucky to work on some of the more exciting large scale web project on the internet. Why can't our SEO geniuses get WebXperts placed for this ominous keyword...
Well enough ranting. We need to see some results. We have purchased a few dozen domain names and now the web design experts here are working diligently on creating SEO friendly websites. We will document the results as usual.
Here are a few - http://www.webexperts-webexperts.com/ , http://www.webexperts-webxperts.com/ , http://www.hireawebexpert.com/,http://www.webdesignexpert.org/ , http://www.webdesignexpert.biz/, http://www.webexperts.tv/
We have more to come...

We have been doing a large amount of research on the power of content. One of the things that we have stumbled upon is the ease in getting related content on your page. We have a website that we are experimenting with called Funniest Blog Posts.com.
WebXperts programmed the site to pull search engine listings on several keywords and with the SEO scripting that the web experts worked up this seo script also placed this valuable relative content on the website.
Amazingly enough Google thinks this is actual unique content! Now we have tried some of the pluggin RSS readers out there and some of the widgets that read other websites and places there information on your page. These tactics DO NOT WORK! we have tested them thoroughly and they do not actually place the content on your webpage, they display the content but search engine spiders will not pick this content up.
You have to write custom SEO scripts to get this content to show up when search engine spiders query your website. Call WebXperts at 1-877-932-9778 or visit our website at www.webxinc.com and we will get tour SEO scripts working for you.

AtlantaWebDesigner.net is a domain that we have owned for a while. We have Atlanta Web Designers, and have been doing web design for over 20 years, and have tons of satisfied clients. Yet when you search for the keyword Atlanta Webdesigner or Atlanta Web Designer - WebXperts is not on the top three pages.
I have to say our tests with submitting this keyword "atlanta web designers" to yahoo site explorer turned out to be a waste of time. I submitted atlantawebdesigner.net through site explorer and it did nothing for my results on Yahoo. Site explorer by Yahoo is also nothing compared to the tools Google gives web site owners. Just wanted to pass on the research.

I have read a lot of articles on the frustrating feature of blogger's title. Article after article on changing the blogger title covers one aspect or another but no article on the changing the title tag for a blogger posts covers it all.
Here we go. Follow the steps exactly.
1) Please do not feel you can skip any of these steps in making the title tag dynamic
2) Do not edit any of the files in the blogger window. Copy the source code it presents in the text box into an editor. I tried may times and even though it works with some templates it will not work with others. Maybe it exceeds the length a text box can read, who knows.
3) Open up the the blogger blog you want to modify the title tag for.
4) Navigate to the Template tab in your blogger blog
5) Select the link EDIT HTML. (It's right under the Template tab graphic)
6) Select the Expand Widget Templates checkbox for your blogspot or blogger blog.
7) Click in the text box window and select all of the text.
8) Copy this text into any text editor (PC's - hit start, run, and type notepad MAC's - use Text Edit)
9) Search the Text for Blog2. Lot's of sites dedicated to teaching you how to change the title tag in blogger blog skip this step. I think they forgot the fact that some components already occupy Blog2 and if you find it in your document you need to alter your strategy slightly.
10) If you found Blog2 in your text, check for Blog3 if you don't find it good. If you do find it keep with this pattern until you can not find it.
11) Move to the top of the document ,in your text editor, and locate the title tag (since blogger wont allow you to display it, even in a quote, i had to take a screen shot the area is highlighted in blue)
12) Replace that title tag with the following text.
Important Note: if you have found a Blog2 or Blog3 or BlogX in your document in step 9 make sure you change it. What ever number you found add 1 to it BlogX+1 and replace the section of the code that references Blog2. There should only be one and if you had a Blog2 already you would change:
widget id='Blog2' with widget id='Blog3'
There have been instances where I have seen some weird things happen once you do this I will try to cover some of them.
Bloggger Postings are in my sidebar
Backup everything first.
Check for extra occurances of this code:
widget id="'Blog2'" locked="'false'" title="'Blog" type="'Blog'/">
Delete them. Blogger will ask are you sure just say yes.
I get a error from Blogger when I try to edit the template HTML
You should be able to go back to you template either by hitting back or becuase it has launched this error in another window.
Just revert to your old template - you have not lost any of the content. I tried hard to do so and was unable to.
