USA Trip – September 2011

I am planning a trip to the US Open tennis tournament at the end of August and will be staying in the USA for the most of September.

I’ll be in NYC and have time to meet from 5th to 9th of September.

Then I am off to Milwaukee where I’ll stay a day or two.

Then I am off to Houston (a few days), Ft. Lauderdale (day or two)and back to New York where at the moment I plan to leave back for Slovenia on 20th of September.

  4. Wish you could swing by Tennessee for a bit while you are in the US. Would love to meet up in Nashville. It’s a great place!

  5. Darn! 😉 Maybe next time when I’ll be doing the USA Freedom tour.

    I hope to spend 2 months at some point in the USA and just check lots of places.

    Maybe next year… Depends on Google a lot. 😉

  6. Hey Tomaz,

    Have a great run through the USA. One day our paths will cross again. I’ll watch the US Open and look for you in the cheap seats or will you be in Federer’s box!

    I’ll be in the middle – loge seats. Not the cheapest, not the most expensive. Should have a good view as I sit behind the player. 😉

  7. Have a great time. I have great memories of going to the outer courts during the earlier rounds as a kid.

    Try to get some time to hit some balls in Central Park. It’s a good experience.

    Thanks Sabrin,

    The Central Park is a must see. Hope to hit some balls too!

  8. Wow, you’re so lucky!

    I visited NYC once and I wish I’d go there every year, especially now because of my niche :). It’s the ‘mini’ version of world, so colorful, so energetic, so intense… I completely understand why so many New Yorkers never want to move outside the Big Apple – because they don’t have to travel far to see Italy, China, Korea, Russia, Poland…

    One of the rare things I didn’t enjoy very much there was food (except bagels), but I guess I am quite spoiled with good food :).

    Wishing you a very nice and successful trip!

    Hey mk,

    I am sure NYC will deserve a new album in my FB page. 😉

  9. Tomaz,

    Will miss you again this year at the US Open. I am there for only one day on August 31. Will be rooting for Djokovic this year.

    Have two SEO related questions. Let me know if you want me to paste them elsewhere as a comment to a different article, but here goes:

    I am always impressed how you think things out logically and also experiment and look for empirical evidence to support or dis-prove your theories.

    1. Is posting relevant well-written comments to article on websites (and including the link to my site)that are closely related to my site an effective way to get inbound links and raise search engine results?

    I have concentrated on content, have written 150 pages, wrote a very few ezine articles, but have not concentrated on getting links. I have about 70 inbound links to my home page and about 150 overall to my entire web site. The site is 2.5 years old. My traffic grows about 10% each month.

    2. What is the best and quickest way to jump start my traffic?

    Hey Bruce,

    I’ll be rooting for Novak too. But I really hope I get to see the Swiss magician play.

    Ok, to your questions…

    1) The comments may help your site a little bit when you have 0 incoming links.

    As you mentioned, I like to test things. I did this test with one small blog which had maybe 10 posts.

    I built links to it exclusively with comments (around 100 of them). Then I stopped doing that and the site keeps getting maybe 20 visitors per day.

    In my opinion, almost all links (comments) are nofollow. The site gets maybe 20 visitors per day and it is ranking in search engines.

    If you try to do that with a more established website like yours, nothing will happen with your rankings. You might get some small traffic directly from visitors clicking on your name in the comments but that’s about it.

    2. The best way to jump start your traffic is to get links from high pagerank authority websites.

    If you could get a link on a homepage / blogroll of a PR4+ related website / blog, then that would help your site the most.

    If you get just 5 of those you would be doing really well. Here are some link building ideas on how to look for them…

    @Tomaz,

    Thanks Tomaz,

    As always you give direct answers that make sense.
    You know what you are doing when it comes to building successful sites, search engine optimization and getting links.

    Thank You and enjoy your visit to the USA,

    Bruce

    @Tomaz,

    Tomaz,

    As the final follow-up question, as I have started this task I’ve noticed that a large percentage of the inbound links that my competition have are from completely un-related sites, most from a “resources,” “links,” or “friends” page.

    There are usually a few sentences with good keyword-based content and anchor text, but often the site is an unrelated topic. Does that matter or is the page rank THE MOST important factor.

    Thanks again for your input.

    Bruce

    These links all help with your rankings but sometimes not much. I really depends on which site they are placed and how many other outgoing links there are. The less the better.

    They are a part of your inbound links program but don’t overdo them. Maybe 10 such links are enough…
