A Great SEO Tool for WebDevelopers

Search Engine Optimization (SEO), as we all know, is a very important step towards having good inbound traffic to your website/blog, especially the kind everyone loves - Free.

Let's focus on the On Site SEO, the optimization done in the website/blog itself.
The responsibility of having a well optimized website is both of those doing the marketing strategy and the ones developing the website/blog.

As for the first ones, it's a matter of looking into the business/company/blog and decide the keywords they want to be visible and that are more relevant to their website and business.
After the strategy is defined, it's time for the web developing team make their part.

Many web developers are very good at what they do, programming, but lack a clear understanding of the importance of SEO and how to implement the optimizations.
What happens? The Strategy is not implemented properly and it won't work.

It is important to give the web developing team a clear explanation of what is wanted and how to do it.

To help overcome this problem and make this an easy step, GinzaMetrics came up with a very easy to use tool that helps web developers: the Web developers CheatSheet.

How does the Web Developers CheatSheet work?

It is quite simple to use.
It is just a matter of filling in the important information:

SEO CheatSheet thumb
And it automatically generates the Tags necessary for SEO and Open Graph.
Here is an example of the SEO Tags:

SEO CheatSheet - SEO Tags

And of the Open Graph ones:

SEO CheatSheet - Open Graph Tags

Final Thoughts on the SEO CheatSheet

This tool is quite a simple and easy-to-use one and it can have an interesting impact on avoiding poorly programmed SEO Tags, and given its importance it is a mistake most site can't afford to make.

What do you think? Would it help you?

How To: Pin a Quote on Pinterest

Pinterest and PinAQuote.com - Thumb

That's right: pin a quote on Pinterest.

The rising star social network Pinterest can now have quotes pinned on their pinboards.
Up until now you could either pin an image or a video.
Now, PinAQuote.com helps you get the quotes you want on an image and share it on your Pinterest pinboards.

How can I Pin a Quote on Pinterest?

It's quite simple.
PinAQuote.com allows you to select the text you want from whatever source you want (as long as it is text) and it converts it into a simple image where you define (aside from the text) the source.

You just have to drag the "Pin a Quote" button into your Bookmark's bar on your browser and anytime you want to pin a quote, you just select the text, click the button, fill in the options...
