Organic Mobile Search Engine Results from December 2015

Organic Mobile Search Engine Results from December 2015 daily-golden-nugget-1448-57
A few weeks ago, I published a Nugget showing the recent trends in search engine organic usage. I've been tracking those statistics since 2010, and now I have enough information to compare mobile organic visits to desktop organic visits.

In that previous Nugget, I showed that Google cu...

Baxter's Fine Jewelry Website Review

Baxters Fine Jewelry Website Review daily-golden-nugget-1380-16
Hello and welcome to the Friday Flop Fix, or #FridayFlopFix. Every Friday I randomly choose and review a retail jeweler's website. Normally I just choose the first jeweler that appears in the SERP listing for whatever town I look at; sometimes I find good sites, and sometimes I find bad sites. I'm going to change it up and intentionally look for sites that have problems, the website flops as it were, and offer ideas to fix them.

My search this week to me to Warwick, RI, specifically the Google search for "j...

The Search Engine is Calling You

The Search Engine is Calling You 2121-daily-golden-nugget-668The curious caller ID on your phone says "Search Engine" and when you pick it up it's someone telling you they can place your website in the top ranking position in Google's search results.

This is a telephone scam.

My office has been receiving these calls since October 2011 and it seems like we still have at least one come in every month. They are quite annoying, although not nearly annoying at the "this is your Captain speaking" phone calls.

Google usually does not make telemarketing calls, and they certainly do not ...

There's a New Search Engine:

Today's Daily Gold Nugget is sort of an "FYI." We want to make sure you are aware of a new emerging technology that may impact your bottom line eventually if it catches on.

After rumors and reviews from some initial 8,000 beta testers, yesterday, November 1, 2010 the new search engine opened to the public.

In the past 30 days, we've measured all inbound search engine traffic for the jewelry websites we host. Here are our results:
Google 69%
Yahoo 17%
Bing 10%
AOL 2%
Ask 1%
Search 1%

Google has clear dominance for creating inbound traffic for jewelry stores. That's why we don't bother providing SEO services or analyzing SEO results from other search engines. We also know that if you strive for organic search excellence in Google, your efforts will also...
