So I used to work for this crazy smart lady named Gini. She writes a blog. And runs a business.
And, although her blog is called Spin Sucks, I thought today’s post was super relevant to my more design-inclined readership.
Right now, she’s at Search Engine Strategies 2010 with my former colleague and good friend Molli. And they’re sharing their key takeaways from the conference, which I’ve been trying desperately to keep up with.
But none of it really fit within the scope of this blog until today. Because today I created something pretty, which also happens to be quite telling.
Here’s the segment that got my wheels turning:
There are free tools to figure out where your SEO stands right now. Go to Wordle right
now and type in “www.spinsucks.com” to the URL block. You’ll see we do a fairly nice job with SEO because all of the things we discuss here come up in the tag cloud (i.e. Twitter, Facebook, share, content, value, etc.). Now go back and type in your company name or your blog’s URL. What comes up in the tag cloud? How is your organic search?
Now, I’ve used Wordle before. But I never thought of it as a tool to analyze Covet Chicago.
So elegantly simply right? Of course, I had to try it.
But I’m still pretty happy with mine.
If you try this, please include a link and share it! I’m really curious to learn if Wordle illuminates anything for you.
