Mihai’s SEO Cheat Sheet

My SEO Cheat Sheet is finished, after undergoing some hundred retouches. Free for download and usage, licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 License. Please feedback on any of it’s aspects you can think of.

I tried to keep it short, but I guess it turned into more of a “short manual” or best practice guide. I recommend you print it and use it as a checklist; it’s currently an A4, but shoot me an email and I’ll export a letter also.

Later edit: I deleted the TOC from this post, as it lead people into thinking “this is it”.

Crash course in advertising

The sixth format is “benefit causes story.” You conceive the ad back-to-front, by imagining a trail of events that might be caused by the product’s benefit. In the example Gunn uses, a man on a safari screams when a lion charges him. It’s then revealed, to the amusement of the man’s friends (and also the viewer), that he’s been looking through the powerful zoom lens of his Olympus camera. The lion is, in fact, hundreds of yards away.

Excellent walkthrough from

It may take 3 days to “Buy Now!” online

Interesting study to look into:

Online Shoppers Take a Day and a Half to “Buy Now”

[…] Slightly over one-third (37%) of shoppers took more than 12 hours to make a buy decision. Twenty-six percent took more than three days, with almost five (18%) of these “cautious shoppers” taking one week to decide where to buy.

This reminds me of the info overload effect (I can’t recall the name of the study) that online media produces. Not only will it be hard to pick the right product from the vast variety out there (try looking for the right cellphone), but you will feel the regret of making the wrong choice even before purchasing.

Makes you wonder, doesn’t it.
