    a band is a lot like promoting any other kind of enterprise It is a mistake to think that just because you are good at what you do you will automatically develop a following or be heard by people who can help you advance Yes you need to sound great and bring something interesting to the table for sure but all that counts for nothing if nobody knows about it The more socially orientated Web 2 0 world gives you plenty of opportunities to share your songs and connect with people who ve enjoyed your gigs and is a cheap mostly free way to get the message out about what you are doing Here are some tips Create a Facebook Fan Page Facebook fan pages are pretty much essential for bands now Free and quick to set up all you need are some pictures and some profile blurb to create your page Get people to Like it by first spreading the word to all of your own friends to get a decent base of followers so it doesn t look too lonely when your new fans start to show up and then promote on any posters flyers or promotional merchandise you give out at gigs Use your page wisely keep a decent repository of links to anywhere people can hear your music or watch videos of your performances such as any YouTube clips and to reviews in local press as well as posting messages on the page which your fans will see in their news feeds about upcoming dates or anything else you want to share There is no harm in being personal posting jokes and links to other things you think are cool and related to the band that aren t directly relating to your own activities this can make your page more fun and useful to your fans but don t overdo it Most social media marketing consultants recommend to businesses that you should post no more than three times a day on Facebook to avoid looking annoying or spammy this is a good rule of thumb for bands too Use Twitter As well as Facebook give your fans a chance to follow you on Twitter too Unlike Facebook there isn t really a limit to how many tweets per day are acceptable and it is a great way to get people to interact with you and tell you what they thought of your last gig or whether they like your new idea It can also be used to start networking with people who can help you other bands in cities you d like to play in venues promoters anybody you would benefit from getting in with in fact By following them and replying to their tweets you can build up a rapport and develop that into a useful relationship YouTube YouTube is a great place to keep any footage of your performances or any other promo videos you have so create a channel for your band and make sure you promote it and any new videos as you add them on your Facebook and Twitter accounts If you see someone filming you at one of your gigs on their phone or camera try and catch up with them later and ask if they d mind posting it on YouTube and sending you a link so you can also get some actual fan generated video content out there too There are many good groups I ve seen including wedding bands and party bands playing all around Hampshire Somerset Dorset and Oxfordshire so go check them out This entry was posted in band and tagged party band promotion wedding band on

your website and catapult you up to the heady heights of page one lets just be clear on this it just doesn t work any more the search engines have become much more intelligent than you or I could ever be so if you hear that a technique is obsolete pay it some heed I m not saying you shouldn t test it for yourself but just be aware that many old techniques can now carry a penalty do do it with extreme caution below I have listed a few examples of very old techniques which if applied to a website nowadays is much more likely to cause you long term issues than it is to help you edge your way up the rankings The oldest trick in the book is hiding elements of the page it s well documented and don t believe that just because you found some guru preaching the benefits of these techniques that

text again this did work many moons ago and I remember using it in point 1 size and using it to underline the visible text on a page but that was a very long time ago and no before you even give it any thought point 0 doesn t work either lol creating links which can t easily be seen an example being using a decimal point or other character on a page to link out somewhere else To see just how easy it is to identify look at the source code of any web page which contains some outbound links on it you will easily see

  • 2012 Has Proved to be an Interesting Year | Web Design | Techno Creative
    jumping up and down the ranks like a mad thing all summer I have a personal website too that site does compete for some pretty uncompetitive terms to be fair but for a few weeks it held positions 1 through to 8 on page one then the entire of page 2 and 3 for several terms While I was quite happy with this level of exposure I could see it was never going to last it doesn t really give someone a choice when a single site dominates the ranks in this way There was another example of this happening with a clients site too unfortunately it wasn t his site which dominated but the main vendor who he buys from They had the first 8 spots on page one while he held position 9 and 10 His sales didn t drop off though despite having been pushed so far down the page as the vendor were significantly more expensive than him so although they had to scroll further to find an alternative the other resellers had all been pushed back to page 2 so it was just him and the vendor left on page one All that was great

    use it in the URL and again in the h1 then just a couple of times on the page itself but of course we are going to be using synonyms and other related terms on the page too aren t we Of course before you can even attempt to create a page you need to know what it s going to be about so it s wise to do keyword research first I just use the Adwords Keyword tool as it s free and relatively easy to use just remember to sort by your region and tick the exact match and un check broad match or you will see wildly misleading results for this purpose You must also get a rough idea of where your your clients website stands in comparison to the competition this can be measured in a number of ways however I just use the SeoMoz tool bar it s free and has a handy graphic bar so you can see both the page and domains authority at a glance Authority doesn t appear to simply be about how many links you have although I suspect who links to you is a factor It s likely that how many pages of unique content they have is also a factor this can be checked easily with bings link command Of course all this may be too much work if you are already running your own business so you could find a good seo company UK based if you are over this side of the pond too even better if you can find a seo company who are close by you can then meet them face to face either before or during the work This entry was posted in seo and tagged company competitors google keywords pagerank seo on 09 11 2011 by steve A Few Techniques to Avoid It used to be that you could build a website fill it up with keywords hide them in alt text and in meta descriptions and the search engines would love your website and catapult you up to the heady heights of page one lets just be clear on this it just doesn t work any more the search engines have become much more intelligent than you or I could ever be so if you hear that a technique is obsolete pay it some heed I m not saying you shouldn t test it for yourself but just be aware that many old techniques can now carry a penalty do do it with extreme caution below I have listed a few examples of very old techniques which if applied to a website nowadays is much more likely to cause you long term issues than it is to help you edge your way up the rankings The oldest trick in the book is hiding elements of the page it s well documented and don t believe that just because you found some guru preaching the benefits of these techniques that it wont cause you problems The most typical examples being The same colour text as the background it doesn t matter if it s red on red or indigo on indigo the search engines can see it Don t believe me Try it then hilight the entire contents of the web page and you will spot it clear as day if I can find it that easily you can be sure that Google MSN and all the others can just as easily Tiny text again this did work many moons ago and I remember using it in point 1 size and using it to underline the visible text on a page but that was a very long time ago and no before you even give it any thought point 0 doesn t work either lol creating links which can t easily be seen an example being using a decimal point or other character on a page to link out somewhere else To see just how easy it is to identify look at the source code of any web page which contains some outbound links on it you will easily see where it links to this is more akin to what a search engine sees than the nice glossy webpage which we all look at b seo s and designers excepted of course so it s incredibly easy to identify This really is the tip of the iceberg so if you are unsure about anything at all find a professional seo company and even if you don t employ them to run a campaign for you pay for a couple of hours of their time then follow the advice you receive This entry was posted in seo and tagged ethical seo techniques to avoid on 17 02 2011 by steve Forums This is just a quick update today or possibly a rant Can anyone tell me what is going on with the quality of the seo forums these days The quality of posts has been steadily getting worse and worse over the last couple of years to the point now where I have stopped visiting several of them the prime culprit being digital point When I first started going there over 5 years back there were sensible questions and only a limited number of duplicate posts but these days it seems that every post is a duplicate sometimes of over 100 times it s then followed by a mass of replies often giving inaccurate information Whilst a lot of this issue is due to the forum moderators not being strict enough with the noobs it s more the fault of the noobs posting a complete load of rubbish so they can increase post count to the point where they can add a signature this is simply because they think it s going to give them a related keyword rich link back to their site wrong The links from forums even if they don t include the no follow attribute are almost worthless anyway

    did you know that they have since added the Penguin update In April 2012 Google introduced a new element of their search engine algorithm which has caused quite a stir amongst a lot of SEO s and website owners alike particularly those who have been using the latest trends of link building to help push their site to the top of Google This latest update is their attempt to rid their search results of spam and doorway type pages and although it seems to predominantly revolve around penalising sites with a high proportion of trashy links pointing to them it appears that it could also be targeting those who use over optimisation on their pages such as excessive keyword repeats and possibly also duplicate content or spun content It s the links though which seem to have caused most problems for people It seems that low quality backlinks with exact match keywords to the sites optimised terms are getting pages knocked right out of search I m sure as time moves on there will become some much more rigid theories on exactly what type of links they are and how to either avoid them in the first place or at
