I have been working on a new website. I think it will be a better experience for my followers and I will be gradually updating the new website and likely phasing this (aboutwebsitedesign) one out.
Please have a visit to my new site and subscribe to www.ericrowen.ca
What are your thoughts on the new site ? Like it ? Hate it ?
Thanks in Advance,
Google adds support for logos in search results
Today, we’re launching support for the schema.org markup for organization logos, a way to connect your site with an iconic image. We want you to be able to specify which image we use as your logo in Google search results.
Using schema.org Organization markup, you can indicate to our algorithms the location of your preferred logo. For example, a business whose homepage is http://www.example.com can add the following markup using visible on-page elements on their homepage:
<div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Organization"> <a itemprop="url" href="http://www.example.com/">Home</a> <img itemprop="logo" src="http://www.example.com/logo.png" /> </div>
This example indicates to Google that this image is designated as the organization’s logo image for the homepage also included in the markup, and, where possible, may be used in Google search results. Markup like this is a strong signal to our algorithms to show this image in preference over others, for example when we show Knowledge Graph on the right hand side based on users’ queries.
As always, please ask us in the Webmaster Help Forum if you have any questions.
In the latest issue of Profit magazine I came across an short article that profiles a company called “Search Engine People” and the article gives a couple of SEO tips by Jennifer Osborne (SEO Specialist).
Do you use these tips when creating your webpages/websites to help in SEO rankings ?
Sorry for the quality of the scan – I did it ‘on the fly’.
