Search Engine Journal Updates Design

I bumped into Loren Baker of Search Engine Journal in the press room here at SES Chicago and he mentioned something about updating the SEJ design. By the looks of the screen capture above, it’s a pretty nice upgrade. Loren mentioned that the design was by Chris Pearson, the same fellow who worked on and Text Link Ads.

Nice job Chris and Loren!

Spanking New Design for Online Marketing Blog

After threatening many, many times to get a new face on Online Marketing Blog, we’ve finally done it. Thanks to Thomas aka TwisterMC for putting up with my many revisions and for developing the cool subscription and bookmarking tools.

Also thank you to those people that I kept bugging for feedback and provided it!  We may not have implemented many of the suggestions received, but all of them were appreciated.

New plug-ins and “social media optimization” features include:

  • Smart Search – suggest search results as you type
  • Slick foldout RSS subscription options in the right column
  • The social bookmark dropdown option after each post

There are a number of finishing touches that are still being worked on, such as adding more static pages of resources, vidoe and tools, but for now this is it.

RSS Buttons for Your Blog

A while back Thomas aka Twistermc, whipped up a handy tool for creating RSS subscription buttons to place on blogs. This makes it easy for the reader to subscribe to the blog using their favoriate RSS reader or aggregator. (See the buttons down the left side of this blog) This particular tool has been very popular and is the source for many, many links to Online Marketing Blog and to the blog marketing tools page over at TopRank.

I was checking out some of these links and noticed that some pretty interesting referrers. There are quite a few prominent SEOs using the RSS Button tools. I think that’s pretty cool actually.
