Getting Found On Google

SEO is a cross between talking to a database and talking to a person. It helps to have an understanding of how database technology works, especially the nuances of database queries and SQL, the language of database storage, retrieval and analysis. Presenting information to Google in a way that flows well with a database improves your chances of early retrieval (ranking) but Google also has algorithms that prevent raw database style language from working. Natural language must also be incorporated and a message to people must have your database language embedded in it. This is a challenge because people don't care about the search aspect, just your message.

Google search is a little like real estate and the upscale, valuable positions are hard to find, acquire, maintain and protect.

January Sunset in So Cal

Murrieta Sunset blazes in a January sundown. This hilltop shielded my view of the extraordinarily colored sky until I rounded a curve on the path down the hill. Then I finished of a photography session of mountains and snow with this glorious post-sunset.

Berry Pretty

Taken in Fullerton California | Orange County Photography | Berry Pretty
These berries are typical in much of California. I took a morning walk in January in balmy temperatures with flowers and grass growing everywhere because of our recent rains.

Down The Trail After Sundown

This is one of a series of shots I photographed going down the trail of a hill I've dubbed Weathertop. The sun had set, and I came around a corner where the west was blocked from view. The very red clouds awaited me and my camera.
