On Jan 4th we conducted a lite SEO audit of checking our success at getting Serr.biz (and HoboBuzz.com) ranked in the top ten of Google for a variety of search terms such as NJ YouTube SEO, New Jersey Youtube Marketing, etc.
Today, I had a good lunch meeting with Joseph McElroy from Galileo Tech Media at Bare Burger in the East Village, NYC. Here are some NYC Xmas photos from the walk there and back. Most of the xmas related photos were taken on 9th street near the Path Station. Enjoy.
New Video - Hoboken Christmas Trees - @hobobuzzcom
The other day we made a quick video of a Christmas Tree lot in Hoboken, NJ, our new home town. Well, not that new, we used to be based here about 6 years ago and are now back! Anyway, we made this video for our side project HoboBuzz.com. Additionally, we include photos from the video for your enjoyment. Oh, and if you need a Christmas tree, or wreaths, be sure to stop the Christmas tree lot at Our Lady Of Grace Church on Willow between 4th and 5th in Hoboken.
This morning we discovered that the SEF structure of tags in Joomla 3.6.4 produces an item like this URL: ../component/tags/tag/4-tag.html. After searching around for a solution, the best we could do with out spending days debugging, was to set up a menu item pointing to tags, then set a .htaccess rewrite. For example: RedirectMatch 301 ^/component/tags/tag/(.*)$ /blog/tags/$1 . That this little trick does for those who do not know, is it sells the server if a request is made for any URL with this element "/component/tags/tag" to be redirected/rewritten as "/blog/tags/(var)". So, the item becomes /blog/tags/4-tag.html. This has solved the problem for the time being.
Since moving back to Hoboken NJ at the end of October 2016, the first public event I had a chance to shoot was the annual Halloween Parade and the swarming mass of revelers before, during and after the parade. This Halloween was one of my favorites so far, since becoming a father. My son also agreed. He had a great, great, time! Anyway, the full collection is posted over on my new side project HoboBuzz.com, a free community website where locals, visitors and business can connect. Enjoy! http://hobobuzz.com/blog/78-hoboken-halloween-photos-2016.html Or, if you prefer, watch the video montage below or at Youtube.
A couple weeks ago we shot a Youtube video titled Salisbury Antique Appraisals for our client Peenstra Appraisals. After editing down the two hours of raw video footage into an 8 minute highlight piece, we posted it on Youtube, PeenstraAppraisals.com and related social networks including their official branded blog: PeenstraAppraisals.wordpress.com.
Literally, in 58 minutes according to Google, Peenstra Appraisals , who had NO previous SERP for the targeted key term made it into the top ten of Google. This is pretty darn fast since there are over 122K pages competing for the same space. In a few days or so we expect the Youtube video along with the parent website site to replace the SERP result seen in the video. We'll check again in a week or so and post an update to the results. If you need help with your local search engine optimization including Youtube and social marketing, then give us a call.
We have updated our website design and focus of the Serr.biz services. Currently, we are experiencing excellent results from our Local YouTube SEO strategy, and are shifting our focus accordingly. Of course, we will still provide general search engine optimization, web design, social media marketing, photography and video production, as they are all inter-related, but we really love making Youtube videos and seeing fast results in the search engines! With that said, here is out newest video.
Facebook has quietly changing how a business page can follow a different business page. This changed about 6 months ago, and again they've changed with out any announcement. Annoying! However, this time they may have gotten it right. It's super simple now and actually requires far fewer clicks. So, here you go.
3 New Appraiser Videos - Maryland SEO company success!

Yesterday we created a new Youtube video for our side project Naptown.today. The video is titled the "Best Roofing Annapolis" and as you can guess from the title the video is all about finding the best roofing company in Annapolis, MD and the surrounding area. You can watch the video below, at Youtube or over on the related roofing page on Naptown.today.
Here are some interesting stats direct from Google about how hispanic consumers interact and engage with Youtube. Most interesting is that more Hispanics watch Youtube than any cable network. Hmm. Additionally, 60% watch in English, 28% both English and Spanish, while only 12% watch in Spanish most of the time. Hmm. So, an easy conclusion here, is if you want to attract the Hispanic audience specifically, you need to be on Youtube. Plus, it's much less expensive to be on Youtube than on cable or other national TV programs.
