True or False? More Content Equals Higher Rankings

Published by:

Cleveland SEO StrategyGaining higher rankings in the search engines has numerous contributing factors, one of which relates to content. But is content king as it was five years ago?

Let’s find out…

So many changes have happened in the online SEO world, that it is ridiculous to believe that one strategy alone is going to place your website in the top 3 positions on Google, regardless of what that one strategy is.

With the ever-so-popular social media platforms, you can bet your bottom dollar that Google is using those platforms to their advantage.  If they have a choice between a website that has been shared ten times, or a website that has been shared a thousand times, as long as all other factors are in place, the latter is going to rank.

Don’t get me wrong, having awesome content that your readers will enjoy is extremely important.  Think about that for a minute.  If your reader enjoys it, they will stay on your page longer. Next, they are likely to share your content on social media such as Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest, to name a few. You have now successfully achieved two important factors of search engine optimization.

Are these two techniques alone going to rank your website?


This is where an expert comes in.  Someone who knows SEO, knows what’s working, and knows what to stay away from.  Too many search engine optimization “experts” will tell you whatever you want to hear to gain your trust, and then they will do whatever it takes to get your site ranked, whether it is safe for your business website or not.  This is the simple truth of it.

The marketing pros at Cleveland SEO are true geniuses when it comes to online marketing.  They will take their time to diagnose the “reasons” why your site is not sitting in the top 3 positions. Only then will they create a plan, and move forward with the best and safest search engine optimization techniques out there.

Akron Checkpoints, Effective or Intrusive?

Published by:

With the Memorial Day holiday just a few days away, I thought that I would write about DUI checkpoints, and see what others feel about them.

Akron DUI CheckpointsI happened to witness one on St. Patrick’s Day near my Akron business, and it appeared to be complete chaos.  There were cars turning around, going down side roads, and some even cutting through my parking lot to avoid the checkpoint.  Now I am sure that all of those drivers were not intoxicated, and just wanted to get to their destination, but it just showed how ineffective I feel this type of thing is.

I do not condone driving under the influence, but considering the neighborhood that my business is located in, I felt that every police officer in the area should not be at one single checkpoint.  It seems that it just allows for crimes to be committed in other locations while the checkpoint was being carried out, which lasted for several hours.

If you are going to be out this holiday weekend, and drinking is involved, please do not drive under the influence.  Call a friend, or call a cab to get you home safely, and without ending up with a DUI under your belt.

If you have been arrested for driving under the influence, visit for the best defense.  She is a criminal defense lawyer in Akron who has been practicing criminal law for over a decade.

Have a great holiday weekend, and be safe!


4 Year Old and a Drug Lab In Kenmore Ohio

Say what?

With all of the controversy that surrounds police officers anymore, it is always nice to read something that supports their role as a public service.  I believe in the police force, and I believe that they do their best to protect and serve.

While I realize that there are “bad cops” out there, it is always nice to read a story where their support for the community results in a positive outcome, especially when a child is involved.



So the Akron police department checked in on the welfare of a child in Barberton, Ohio.  They were met at the door with a woman who refused to let them in without a search warrant.  According to the officers, they could smell an odor of marijuana and other drugs through the door.

They returned a couple of hours later with a search warrant, and found a considerable amount of chemicals that are used to make LSD and hallucinogens.

A chemist from BCI was called in who said “this is very unusual for Akron, let alone the state”.

The Akron police officers who were on the scene were advised to report to a hospital to get checked out due to the fact that they were not wearing appropriate gear for the situation.

According to the source, the child in question was not home at the time, and is reported to be fine.

Good job to the Akron Police Department for checking in on the welfare of this child, and taking down another house that is putting another child in danger.
