Building Your Internet Presence – Important SEO Basics

Aug 2nd, 2010 | Filed under Computers and Internet, Work

I have been sitting here feeling the need to write a new post for this Blog for a few weeks now, though I have started nearly twenty new articles. I have yet to finish any of them, so I decided to tell you all why I am pushing out this new, non interesting SEO article.

The initial point of this Blog was to bring more people to the money making parts of the website where we sell a great selection of T-Shirts and other things. One of the most important  free ways  to bring traffic to the website, is to grow it’s size.

Big massive websites are just easier to find than little tiny ones.

Simply by writing this article I create more  text for the search engines to read, as well as more key phrases Google and the other search engines might look for. This causes us to appear more often in the search results, leading to more visitors.

There are lots of other ways to get traffic, but this way is one of the steadiest, and most consistent.

In addition to more search results,  the links at the top of the page which point back to the main part of the website, might send me a little bit of PageRank “link juice”. Which again will help bring visitors to the website.

Well that is enough for now, this will probably get us only a dozen  new visitors per month or something, possibly for the next few years,  but eventually all these small additions add up.

PlanetaryBargains.com  currently reaches over 120 000 people per year and we expect we will be able to double that next year.

Army Band Shirt Toy Soldiers With Guitars

My Great Uncle Tom passed away when I was six, and willed me a small, closed, brown cardboard box. On the top was written “Only Open in Case of Emergency”.

I carried the box with me everywhere, it gave me great confidence. At night I slept with it on a table next to my bed.

One day a local bully, Dolph, knocked me off my bike on my way home from school. He said he was going to kill me! So I quickly reached for my box and tore it open.

A small light seemed to emulate from the box the instant I cracked its seal. Inside I found three small toy soldiers. Two were using guitars like weapons, and one was dialing in the sound.

I held them out in front of me for protection. Dolph kicked me in the nuts, stole my toy soldiers, and let me live.

I Am Very Disappointed In You

Jun 28th, 2010 | Filed under Opinions and Perspectives, Rants, Shirts, Work

I have been saying for well over a year how great my customers are, I have had some nice e-mails and calls just to say how happy they are. In my many years of dealing with customers I have never such a good group to deal with.

Recently we had a not so good customer though, I know I am not supposed to talk badly about customers, but I want to, so I guess I will.

This guy sent us a e-mail to let us know he had not received his package yet, it was very late, it had been 25 days since we shipped it, and we had paid for the 10 day service.

Since we are aware that United States Postal Service has been really slow at delivering lately, and have also been updating their tracking system on the Internet slowly, I filed in a few forms, made some phone calls, and sent some faxes to find out where this package was. We have never lost a package so we don’t really think it could be completely lost.

Meanwhile this guy keeps e-mailing us, and mentions at one point he does not want to sign for the package when it gets there, he soon starts demanding an immediate refund, and all sorts of other things on almost an hourly basis.

In one of his e-mails he said to me, “I am very disappointed”

I held off on the refund, and waited for the investigation to finish, we are already into this shirt for almost $17 or so with purchasing, packing and shipping.

After a few days I get a phone call that the postal  investigation was finished, and this guy already had his shirt. What a dickhead, not only was he trying to scam us but he bothers to make it personal by saying he is disappointed in us.

So I would just like to say to this loser who tries to steal $20 items on the Internet:

Your the kind of scum we not only don’t want as a customer, but are sad that you even exist on this earth.

We here, are all very disappointed in you!
