Content back on top and the crowd demands video

Video Seo by Sustained Media


After an interested chat with Davis Gravelsins from Sustained Media about updated SEO techniques since the the google panda update. We came to the conclusion that while this change affected a lot of websites, seo shops, content farms etc, it has improved search rankings for the niche content sites, leading to better quality results. Interesting blogs now appear where seo landing pages once had top spot. While search engines change algorithm from time to time, they are just fine tuning to put top content on top. This is where Davis comes in, often he is the source before the source of information breaks out, a marketing genius that not only knows that content is king. But also how to churn out quality regular posts that are bound to put a sharp increase on your traffic.


Look out for more of our video content on our youtube channel as we begin to produce a lot more video content with the help of Sustained Media.

How to NOT be a Google Webmaster: An Alternative Guide

There are many tutorials out there showing you step by step hot to build a business web presence with Google for under $15. This is possible and I first started out using Google's webmaster services for small business. But nowadays there are many suitable alternatives often offering a more secure and stable interface, to out perform those free Google services many have come to rely on. More importantly they do not sacrifice your privacy to terms that if read properly, I am sure most people would not agree to.

Larger businesses for example, cannot make use of Google Analytics because of the privacy concerns for sensitive data. Many other businesses have complained that Google has suddenly shut down their blog, gmail account, adwords, adsense or analytics account without reason.

Is it really possible not to use Google and stay on Google?

Yes. Most of the biggest and most popular sites do not use google services like blogspot with free hosting and a gmail account for email or google translate for web translations. This is because these guys manage their own services on their own server. They know what they are doing and Google can't help but index the meta rich content.

Why pay for service when Google gives it out free?

If you are okay with having your brand, business or personal site managed by a third party, with your visitors knowing that you haven't paid a cent for your website, then may be you should stick with the Google accounts. Otherwise you can invest the $5 to $50 per month for a decent hosting account and take control of your own environment. When your not in control of your hosting, your not in control of it deletion.
Some of the terms Google uses to shut you out:

15. TERM and TERMINATION . Either party to the Agreement may terminate it at any time and for any reason.

Best Alternative to Google Analytics


There are some really good alternatives to Google Analytics that do not slow down your site nor jeprodize the privacy of the data collected. My favourite was Piwik, a free, open source self-hosted platform that collects and saves more data, is faster and offers some really cool widgets to add to your site.

Best Alternative to Google Blogspot


Wordpress.com is one of the best platforms providing you with a free blog but it does not match the features of the self-hosted Wordpress.org. Tumblr and Thexyz also have simple and easy to use bloggging platforms that are free and worth taking a look at.

Best Alternative to Google Adwords


Well I am going to be a bit bias here and say ThexyzNetwork as number one, but Thexyz Ad Network is not the only Ad Network to offer a platform with services exceeding the offerings from Google Adwords. Buyandsellads is also a good one to look at as, just like Thexyz Network you can target a particular website that matches the audience of your website or advertisement.

Best Alternative to Google Adwords


With some advertisers paying up to $50 per click, the adsense program remains one of the most profitable for publishers to earn. With Thexyz Network CPM features, publishers can set their own rates for impressions as a pose to earning just for clicks. Many google ad publishers report having their account closed with reason or warning once they reach the minimum payout. Which is why looking at CPM campaigns is more suitable and reliable for most web masters.

Best Alternative to Google's gmail


Whilst gmail has a very good spam protection feature and generous amount of storage (7GB+) it does have some limitations that other providers are offering better features. Google will also delete an account after 9 months of inactivity, at their discretion. Gmail also only allow a maximum file attachment of 10MB. Mail.com will give unlimited storage and maximum file attachment size of 50MB. For a full list of email providers you can check the wiki page here.

You can get your own personal email account free with any domain registered with Thexyz Hosting for just $14.99 per year, (less than $1.25 per month) or you can check out the list below for some suitable solutions for your new free email account:

Best Alternative to Google webmaster central


When it comes to search marketing you want to be everywhere, so while Yahoo and Bing have finally started to improve thier offerings in this field, you have to be everywhere, so you can avoid adding your site to list of url's to crawl.

Best Alternative to Google Maps

Check out Bing.

Best Alternative to Google Talk


If you haven't tried Google Talk, don't bother, instead use Skype or if not Yahoo.

Best Alternative to Google Feedburner


There are three worthy alternatives to feedburner, they are:

Feedcat - http://www.feedcat.net/
Feedity - http://feedity.com/
RapidFeeds - http://www.rapidfeeds.com/

Best Alternative to Google Bookmarks


The best about the Google Bookmarks service is the speed in which you can index a bookmark. When adding a bookmark speed is essential and there are other services keeping pace.

Best Alternative to Google Search


They still power most web searches and instead of saying "I am going to fire up the family search engine for some answers," one most likely will simply say "I am going to Google it."

Here are some other search engines worth consideration: Bing, Yahoo, Ask, Lycos, Factbites,Quintera.
