Costa Rica Real Estate: Cleveland Winter vs. Costa Rica Summer

Having lived in both Cleveland, Ohio and San Jose, Costa Rica, I’ve seen it all when it comes to weather. Unfortunately, I’m currently experiencing the Cleveland winter.

While doing some SEO work for a Costa Rica Real Estate website, I realized how much I miss living in Costa Rica. Not only because of the great weather (however, that’s a HUGE factor, especially when wiping snow of my car), but because of the stress-free environment.

Using SEO keywords such as “Costa Rica Beachfront Property” can’t help but bring back memories of hanging out at the beach for a weekend or seeing the ocean. And I never did get used to low cost of living.

But, family comes first, and alas, they are here in cold, snowy Cleveland...

SEO Fun and Hiring New SEO Talent

These past few weeks have been horrendous at work due to the large volume of request from new customers. It has gotten to the point where we are no longer accepting new work requests for programming and SEO services and are actually hiring for programmers and SEO experts.

As I was turning and tossing last night over meeting deadlines, finding help and going over applications, I thought to myself, why not make a contest to weed out all of the SEO experts applications. So here is the deal; below are some popular movie quotes that have been changed a bit to become famous SEO quotes.

Well, today it looks like Yahoo has finally decided to give us a ranking for our SEo target keywords in Costa Rica. As you can see, we have increased dramatically in ranking with the yahoo Search Engine and it just keeps getting better.

SEO in a Foreign Language

SEO is a fairly straight forward concept where your website keyword SEO ranking gets better as your number of backlinks increases and your text content is targeted towards those keywords.

Recently, we here at BlindMonkeyMedia acquired a new client, http://www.skiurlaub-in-tirol.de, which is an all-inclusive ski resort in Austria in the mountain region of Tirol.

Doing their SEO is not a big deal since it´s what we do. The challenge, however, is that the SEO keywords and the website itself is in a foreign language. German to be more exact.

Thus, targeting keywords for SEO purposes in a different language does pose a challenge. For example, one of the target keywords is “skiurlaub tirol“. A German word that translates into “Ski holiday in Tirol”.

Building backlinks to the website is ...
