Projects by SEO Skill
SEO Keyword Requirements

Tom has written several articles that focus specifically on keyword research and the proper use and density of keywords. Since 2009, the meta keyword tag is no longer considered and is useless for SEO purposes, yet many webmasters still use it. Instead, the focus is now on the meta description tag which is monitored by the search engines. Here, it's wise to use keywords and related terms as well. However, keyword stuffing will cause a website to suffer harsh penalties, up to and including removal from the search index entirely.

Projects by Asset Type
Blog Post

Blogging is rapidly becoming the norm for many Internet marketers. Blogging is used as a means to persuade visitors to buy a particular product, inform the reader about a specific topic, or to provide general information that tends to entice the reader to "read more". The ability to persuade and inform is important because most blog posts will attempt to do one or the other, but rarely both. The posts that Tom has written are purposely written to inform first, and persuade second.
