Most SEO articles and blog posts I come across talk about how to achieve top rankings in Google for targeted keywords and what it takes to get there. While ranking is of course the crucial first step, what’s missing from the sea of information out there is the answer to the question, “what next?” What do you do when you finally reach your goal of #1 rankings? Do you simply enjoy the ride and pray Google keeps you at the top spot? Or is there a way you can be more proactive with your approach so you can maintain and even add to your success?

Other than your domain name, your logo is probably the first thing visitors will notice about your website. Think of it as the first impression – which believe it or not has a big impact on whether users stay on or click the back button.
Would you go to a job interview wearing a t-shirt and jeans? Or go on a date without showering for 5 days? How about putting a plain gray cover on a new book you’ve written? Yeah, I didn’t think so. In the same way, your logo isn’t something you can skimp on. It’s probably a lot more important than you think, regardless of whether you have a huge established community site or a 5-page niche article site.

I don’t know about you, but I take spelling pretty seriously in my web projects, especially for content sites and blogs like this one. I’m careful to ensure that words are spelled correctly and that typos are minimized. With spell check included in most word processing tools, I don’t think there’s really any excuse for silly spelling errors online.
Or is there?
Despite my urge for spelling perfection, it turns out that a significant percentage of web users are sloppy with their language – particularly when using search engines like Google. There are around 10 million misspelled search queries every single day.
