Is Guest Posting Still a Good SEO Strategy? Not according to Matt Cutts with Google. Originally it was a great way to get noticed – almost like having a famous author do a review on a book. But no more. Google is looking at it more like spam. However, there is a distinction in that depending on the publication, it could be good to do guest blogging.

Denver Real Estate Website with IDX

Denver Real Estate Website with IDX Integration Had so much fun creating this Denver real estate website for Darcy Truppo, a Denver based Realtor. First thing was trying to pick a color that was able to match two different shades of red from her broker logo and office. Integrating the IDX was another job. My designer came up with a few graphics to really make the site look professional. And we also needed a “quick search” feature, so that visitors would be able to view five homes before having to sign up....
