Since the website that I have been working on throughout the semester is pretty much ready to be viewed by the public, it is now time to start promoting it. I am currently working on building a twitter following for @BuyRedFrogBeach. I am using a software that allows you to follow, and unfollow a number of users each day. It is quite interesting. I am also creating a Facebook Fan Page for the villa which should be ready to be viewed by the public by next week. I am looking forward to the next couple of weeks leading up to graduation, and seeing how all of this work throughout the semester turns out.

Over the past month or so, I have been working on a website for Justin and Dreama. The idea is for them to be able to sell their shares that they own in a villa in Panama. The site is pretty much finished besides some minor touches. I have been learning more about dofollow and nofollow links, and which sites should be placed into each category. The only thing left for the site is to add a video and maybe update the background. I will soon be getting into more SEO stuff and I will surely keep you updated.

I will also be working on a side project involving intern profits. Not exactly sure if any SEO work will be involved in the project, or if I will just be updating the site in WordPress. Either way I am really looking forward to it. I’ll be sure to keep you updated while I finish out the last month or so of this internship.

This week marks about my halfway mark while working with internprofits.com. In addition with working with WordPress, updating pages, rearranging theme, etc. recently I have been searching for a variety of different WordPress plugins. These plugins can be used as a number of different tasks to help make your website findable when searching in Google. The more I go along the more I want to learn. So far it has been a great experience.

The more I work on the project handed to me by Justin and Dreama, the more I learn about SEO optimization. Recently I’ve been doing a lot of keyword research for different terms that relate to the project that I’m working on. Once I figure out what terms are most searched for using the Google Analytics tool, I record my results into an Excel Spreadsheet. I find out which terms are the most relevant and most useful, and then I eventually insert them into the “tags” on that certain page for the website. This way we know what people are searching for, and eventually when they search these terms on Google they may come across our page after a little bit of link building. I am currently searching for WordPress plugins that I can insert into the site.

As a little side project, I am also doing some keyword research for students or other people who are trying to find an internship. This will help out with the intern profits site by finding out what people are searching for when it comes to trying to find an internship. I was one of those people searching for an internship not to long ago.

Over the past couple of weeks Justin and Dreama have allowed me to help create a website for property in Panama that they will eventually sell. They’re giving me the freedom to write the content and information I feel is necessary for the site, as well as create landing pages, include pictures, edit videos, and manage the twitter and youtube accounts for their villa. I’m learning more about using WordPress everyday and all of its little capabilities when it comes to editing a website. I’m also learning how to promote the website through twitter and youtube by using SEO techniques, such as link building and keyword research. I am interested in seeing how the website will turn out when it’s close to finished and how many hits it gets per month.

I have been working for Justin and Dreama for a few weeks now, and I learn more every day. I usually take a call with Justin once or twice a week and he gives me the rundown of the tasks that need to be completed. First I started with link building, but now I have moved on to another interesting project. I’m trying to help them with a new website that they are working on by doing some research and even posting information that I have found on my own. The project I’m working on also involves networking on Twitter and Youtube to get some other people interested through social media. I can’t wait to get even more involved with this project and am looking forward to doing my part.

Hey everybody, this is my second week working for Justin and Dreama Lee. First I want to thank them for giving me the opportunity to work for/with them at Intern Profits. I am working on Search Engine Optimization, and I already feel like I have learned a ton of valuable information in only 2 weeks! My first week consisted mostly of watching training videos and talking with Justin, so that I could get a grasp on the concept of SEO before actually diving into it. I had a chance to watch some very interesting training videos which contained information that a lot of local business owners would love to know. These videos are vital in teaching local businesses how to get their business website onto the first page of Google.

Once the training process was over, I finally got to start using these tactics on my own. Doing some of these tasks and assignments really open your mind up to how and what people actually search for when using Google. I know there is a ton more to learn in the upcoming weeks, and I plan to let you all know how my internship goes throughout the semester.
