Split Testing Keyword Lists – Zip Codes vs. Cities

One of the questions I received a lot in my former career as CTO of Angular Marketing was whether to use cities or zip-codes in site architecture. For example, imagine a client comes to me who runs tennis clinics across the North Carolina triangle (Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill). Should they build their website like this… http://tenniscoaches/raleigh-nc/classes or like this… http://tenniscoaches/27519/classes Well, it turns out there is a really easy way to answer this question by split-testing with Moz Keyword Explorer lists. No tags for this...

Momentum Wi-Fi Video Camera Walmart Won’t Connect Issue

Hey folks, this is an unrelated blog post to what I normally write, just wanted to put this out on the internet to help others who might be having the same problems… If you are trying to connect your new Momentum wi-fi cameras but aren’t having any luck, here are a couple of potential issues you might want to check… Are you connecting to a 2.4GHz network? The cameras do not seem to want to connect to a 5GHz network and, in fact, might not be capable of it. If you have a dual-band system, you might need to make sure you connect to the 2.4GHz. Does your router support UPnP? If you use AT&T U-verse like me, it doesn’t. This means you need to set up port forwarding. Importantly, you need to set up Port-Forwarding for the device you are...

Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes…

It has been more than 10 years since I began working for Virante/Angular. In that time I have made incredible friends, created exciting technologies, and had the privilege to work with brilliant people doing wonderful things for great clients. But all good things come to an end. I honestly cannot look back at the last 10 years and lodge a legitimate complaint. The other executives who have helped lead our company along the way have done nothing but give me the resources, support, and gentle nudges-back-to-reality I have needed to grow my own knowledge and build great things for our clients. From free tools like OpenCaptcha and LinkSleeve which have literally stopped tens of billions of pieces of spam from making their way onto the web, to innovative search...

What’s In a Name – Angular.Marketing

So, I think I threw a few of you for a loop earlier today with this tweet saying that today was my last day at Virante. Technically, this is true, but not because I am leaving my beloved coworkers and business, but rather because Virante as we know it is no more. I am excited to announce that as of today, Virante is now Angular. I do want to say that I was very moved by the positive comments I received from so many of you. Why the Change Over the previous two years we have contemplated a rebrand for our company. When I first began at Virante in January 2005, we were a full service web development and marketing firm. We did everything from logos and brochures to web design and SEO. Like many small digital agencies, we did just about anything and everything we...
