More Develop Daly WordPress, Web Design, & SEO Resources

As part of my contribution to Lead Maverick, I keep a blog over there on web design related things. I have to decide to where my content is best suited – often times it is for both places.

My Lead Maverick blog consists of some rich content that you’d probably be interested in so I encourage you to check it out. Here are some summaries of a few of my articles.

The blogosphere has been booming lately with discussion of data portability. It’s a topic that really excites me, because I see the possibilities of the Internet and am discouraged by the lack of embracement.

Semantic markup is another one of those areas that could be utilized to a much greater potential and I’m excited that it is finally getting its due credit. The possibilities of sorting through semantic content is endless and can only improve search engines and in turn improve content visibility. Filtering through tons of crap to find what you want is a pain; hopefully through Microformats, XFN, and more we can achieve a level of content organization that extends a huge helping hand to searchers.

Matt Cutts made a video a while back sifting through some SEO Myths, view it through this post.

New Lead Maverick Site Launched

Yesterday we finally launched the redesigned main site for Lead Maverick. Previously it looked like we were selling software…from 1993. Now we’ve updated the look and feel but the content as well. Hopefully we better represent what we’re selling now.

I really enjoyed getting to improve on the look and feel of the company. I felt really held down by the impression left with others when they would visit the old design. Now, I’ll be much more quick to send people to the site, rather than try to explain everything myself. I’m excited to see what our current customers’ reactions are!

Lead Maverick – SEO Mothership

As we get (re)started here on Develop Daly I’d like to begin by letting you know a little bit about what I do.

What I Do: Front-end web design/development for Lead Maverick

What Lead Maverick Does: Search Engine Optimization for small to mid-size businesses without changing their websites

As a plug, yet an non-sponsored advertisement, let me tell you what Lead Maverick can do for you.

In April the company was incorporated and the product released in summer 2007. The product being a directory that aggregates, optimizes, localizes, and organizes your content to make it more search-engine friendly. Basically customers use our tool to put content into our application and we spit that content back out into a directory where it all the magic takes place. Its really amazing how well it works too. We see results in less than 24 hours sometimes. Results being: search terms finding our content in number 1 rankings or at least top ten.

Right now my job is to redesign everything. Starting with the primary domain – you know, the home page and main company information and such – the marketing stuff. Very very soon we’ll be launching this and all that we do will make much more sense than the current website does. Following that the focuses of everyone will be on re-working the directory and the application. I’m really excited about this because its where we get to be innovative and bar-setting.

In addition to this, I’ve picked up lots of great SEO goodies. I’ll be sprinkling them about my blog every once in a while. Thanks for your subscription!
