GoTo.com – The Original PPC Search Engine Launches New, Organic Web Search

by | March 30th, 2017 | Posted in Search Engines | Comments (1)

GoTo.com, a ground-breaking pay per click search engine from the Dot Com era, launched a new Alpha version on March 28th, 2017 with a nostalgic design but to little fanfare.

This time it’s billing itself as “A human-powered search platform” with Organic search results instead of Paid listings.

Web Ranking: Nuisance Phone Calls on Your Caller ID

by | March 21st, 2017 | Posted in Search Marketing Blog, WebRanking News | Comments Off on Web Ranking: Nuisance Phone Calls on Your Caller ID

What a difference a space makes.

Since 1998, we’ve been WebRanking (one word, capital W, capital R). You know, those friendly digital marketing fellas that help businesses find online success (that’s us below).

Most of the WebRanking (one word) crew after we “escaped” from the Sherlock Room.

However, if you are reading this, there is a good chance you are here because of those other guys: The two-word Web Ranking that keeps showing up on your Caller ID over and over again. The annoying people that are calling your home phone repeatedly, but don’t leave a message. The ones who when you do pick up are trying to sell you a free home security system, or some other too good to be true offer.

Google’s Advice on “How to Hire a Good SEO” Explained

by | February 22nd, 2017 | Posted in Search Engine Optimization | Comments (1)

How to Hire a Good SEO

Finding transparent and straight-forward advice from Google and Bing can often be a challenge. We’ve come to expect search engines to parse information in small bite sized morsels. This often leaves us trying to find the deeper, hidden meaning.

So, it was quite refreshing when Google offered up advice to business owners on assessing and hiring SEO experts and agencies in the form of this video.
