Taking a break from this blog...

While the master plan is to resume posting here someday down the road, I'm going to take a break from this website for a bit. That means if you're visiting "down the road" and don't see any posts here, don't fret. I'm just spending more time o my WSI Digital business.

Until I'm back posting on a regular basis, hop over to WSI Digital for all sorts of great information about online marketing and secure website solutions for community banks. Or, if you're a banker yourself and interested in building your personal brand online, my most recent effort is called The LinkedBanker. We've created a mastermind and mentoring community that I'd love for you to check out.

Google's Quality Update - Is Your Website Ready?

For several years, I've enjoyed a partnership with the fine folks at SiteQuest Technologies, the creators of a tool called SQWatcher. While originally developed to help regulated businesses (like banks, where I spend a majority of my time) automatically archive page content and updates, with the recent announcement of Google's "Quality Update," one of the added benefits of the system is that it's looking at ALL of the website resources - and now provides even more value for users given the Google announcement.

Is Your Bank Ready for .Bank? Here Are Some Things You May Want to Know…

For all my friends in the north braving the cold weather and snow, you’re probably not going to like what I’m about to say, but here goes… Recently I was invited to present at the Southeastern Conference of Community Bankers in Key West, Florida (jealous yet?). As someone who lives in Michigan, the idea of being in the Keys during the end of January was an great opportunity to charge the batteries, get some sunshine and meet some new bankers, as I’ve not presented at this event before (but hoping they ask me back… hint, hint).

This was the view out the back of the room!
