Most Social Media Marketing Experts Don’t Deliver! If there has ever been a title that has been overused, it would likely be “social media marketing expert.” Everyone seems to know at least one person out there who has called themselves a social media expert, but not everyone really seems to know one that is able to deliver the amazing results that they promise. Most people also know how to use Facebook, twitter, or Google Plus, but does that necessarily make them a de facto expert? Absolutely not! Just like knowing how to use a hammer won’t make you a master carpenter, just knowing the mechanics behind Facebook is not enough to make you an expert in social media. Sadly, most social media experts only know the mechanical or technical side of social media marketing, and that’s just not enough. Social…

By | Advertising, AdWords, Marketing, NJ, SEO, Small Business Marketing, Website, West Long Branch | No Comments

What SEO Tactics To Avoid In 2015: Google’s Penguin algorithm change from April 2012 was targeted at decreasing search engine rankings of websites that violate Google’s Webmaster Guidelines by blocking “now-declared black hat SEO techniques” that artificially increase a webpage’s rankings through link manipulation. This means you’ll want to make sure you avoid the following: – Spammy Backlinks: Delete inbound links from low-quality websites and link farms. – Exact Match Anchor Text: If your website is “,” do not use “West Long Branch Painting” multiple times as the anchor text link. – Optimized Anchor Text: Do not use the same anchor over and over.

How Social Media Impacts Your SEO Search engine optimization (SEO) should make your website more visible in search engine results. But it’s a common myth to think you’ll wind up on the first page with back links, page keyword stuffing, duplicate content development, etc. Those methods are old school and much of these processes are no longer relevant to major search engines like Google. These days, great content has more influence on how discoverable you are online. For example, try doing searches on Google, Yahoo, and Bing for the term “romantic restaurant New York”. Notice that blogs as well as social media and user generated review sites like Yelp dominate the first page of search results. This means info about you on sites like Yelp is often times more accessible to potential customers than your own website. With that in…

The Graphics Guy was born and raised in Oakhurst NJ, where he attended Ocean Twp. High School. I was always interested in art and wood working growing up but never even thought about becoming a Graphic Artist. I tried a number of occupations after high school. I work as an electrician at Ocean Electric on Route 35 In Oakhurst, NJ. I also worked at the Hot Bagel Bakery on Monmouth Road in Oakhurst. I eventually started working for my father Bob Hazelrigg AIA “The Premier Architect of the Jersey Shore” in Wanamassa, NJ in the mid-1980s. Back then the last thing I wanted to do was to go back to school but I saw the writing on the wall after working a handful of dead end jobs. When I started going to Brookdale for Architecture I was frustrated. Although I was good…
