Making Words Work: James Schramko Discusses the Benefits of Transcribing Multimedia Content for Business

Sydney, Australia (PRWEB) January 30, 2013

James Schramko, chief of, makes it a point to release news updates and valuable business and marketing information in the form of videos and podcasts on a regular basisand with transcriptions made available on the page or through a link. How important, exactly, is this last step? A recent Super Fast Business news video discusses the benefits of transcribing video and audio content in terms of ensuring continued customer engagement and satisfaction in the highly competitive online business scene.

“Is it worth having your videos and audios transcribed?” Schramko poses the question at the beginning of the news video. The Internet marketing expert relates how the subject was recently explored by members of his online business coaching community Fast Web Formula. With transcription jobs currently running at a considerably costly rateabout a dollar per transcribed minute, or almost $ 60 for a one-hour presentation or conversationbusiness owners would do well to examine the value they can get from this particular website feature.

“I am committed to transcriptions, and heres why,” Schramko explains. “Beyond the obvious SEO potential of transcriptions, there are still human beings reading my blog… Not everyone wants to or can watch a video or listen to an iTunes podcast, so for the people who need to read, my blog will still deliver.”

Audio and video transcriptions also work to drive quality traffic to a company’s website. “(Providing transcriptions) makes it easy for people to consume my information, and they can get it the way they likeif they want to watch a video on YouTube, listen to a podcast on iTunes, or read it on my blog, they can,” he adds.

Aside from contributing to traffic generation and enabling site owners to target a more diverse audience, the SEO advantages of transcribed materials also cannot be overlooked. The successful entrepreneur points out how Google webmaster tools can be used to check the significance, the number of occurrences, and the different variations of keywords used in a website. Using the online tool to examine the blog as an example, Schramko highlights how the specific keyword “marketing” (and variations like market-s, market-er, etc.) clearly appears several times throughout the blog, thanks to the published transcriptions.

Schramko shares, “Im pretty sure that having that level of significance and this number of variations will help my longtail search traffic for Super Fast Business, and the results that Ive been getting for this particular website are stunning. I have seen improvements over the last 30 days, and that is just from putting out regular videos, audios and transcriptions to this site.”

As he closes the discussion, the CEO encourages customers and all web users to weigh in on the topic of transcribing audios and videos. “Please reply to this postdo you appreciate the transcriptions, or would it make no difference to you if I didnt do them anymore? Please tell me your thoughts,” he invites.

SiteTrail exceeds 20 000 WHOIS domain checks per day in January – setting new trends on the web.

New York, NY (PRWEB) January 27, 2013

SiteTrail, the online website analysis platform, has seen historically high levels of WHOIS domain checks, in particularly over January 2013. This is largely due to an increase in web users who choose to verify registrar details such as domain ownership for sites they visit. With more than 20,000 searches for a single day, the website that started only 2 years ago is already rivaling the other big WHOIS giants.

SiteTrail helps users keep track of their favorite websites by providing its users analytical information about the websites of interest. It has WHOIS domain check capabilities with additional features that are not found anywhere else on the web. It is probably the different approach that SiteTrail has taken when it comes to website analysis that has earned it this number of domain checks users in the shortest amount of time.

In most cases, users visit a WHOIS website is search of domain information, they find information such as the owner’s contact address and not much more. The fact that they have shown interest in that domain name suggests that they might be interested in buying the domain name. But to be sure if that is the right domain name to buy for their new business, they want to have more information about it. Information like the amount of traffic that domain gets, the number of inbound and outbound links it has and if possible an estimation of how much money they could make out of it.

The traditional way to get more information about the domain an internet marketer is interested in is to first check the domain through a WHOIS website. The next step is to rely on another website to check the inbound and outbound links. Then again look for another website to have an estimation of the traffic it gets and so on. Those who have the money can choose to buy software that will enable them to do the research much quicker. But those softwares don’t come cheap and some of them may require a monthly subscription. With SiteTrail users get all that useful information for free. No wonder SiteTrail users stick to it and keep coming back.

This is what the editor of SiteTrail had to say about the boost in WHOIS domain checks on the website: Considering the increase in the amount of traffic the website is going through, this is a real sign that the user experience on SiteTrail is amongst the best of WHOIS domain check sites out there. users can also try out our WHAT IS MY IP service contained in the Free Webmaster Tools section

With users can be sure to get to know everything they need to know about a website, all nicely arranged on a single page. Gone are those days where one had to do multiple searches on different website just to gather bits of information. Internet marketers can now save a lot of valuable time with SiteTrail their competitors are probably already using it. It would be a shame to let them have the advantage to themselves visit SiteTrail today

Internet Marketing Strategies James Schramko Dishes Out Effective Tools to Monitor Search Engine Ranking in the New SuperFastBusiness Update

Sydney, Australia (PRWEB) December 16, 2012

Every business that wishes to be competitive has to determine which of its offerings is attracting big profits so a better strategy can be formulated either to promote it more or improve it to further satisfy clients; online, the same principle applies. James Schramko, CEO of SuperFastBusiness and SEO expert, reveals that businesses with domains in the World Wide Web can easily track which of their business provisions are generating a lot of attention and, more importantly, profit. In his latest news update, he shares strategies for web-based business and advises website owners to hook up to both Google Webmaster Tools and Google Analytics to see whats actually making them money.

With the Webmaster Tools and Analytics, website owners can look at the number of clicks on the links of their page, the pages that are getting indexed, and the keywords that are making them the most money. Schramko adds, If you can somehow tag a sale to a visit, you can actually see where the visit came from. These are all important data for any business that continuously seeks to redefine goals for maximum improvement.

These tools are also useful in keyword tracking. Using the Webmaster Tools, website owners just need to locate the search query and click through rates. With Analytics, on the other hand, it would at times display a message that the data is not provided; when this happens, heading to the secondary dimension of the landing page will reveal which page of the website has been getting clicks. From the data provided by these tools, it will be easy enough to determine which keywords are generating response.

Schramko also suggests developing long tail phrases to build up website traffic. He says, What you want to be doing is to keep developing those long tail keyword phrases, product names, author names, phrases like how to and reviews. They will bring the buyers and those people turn into your good traffic. Keep adding pages, you get more opportunities.

Before wrapping up the update, he also sheds light on the other available tools offered online such as Raven Tools and Ahrefs. These two do not quite meet the mark in providing the reports that website owners require and focus on; Schramko says that Ahrefs does not even report search engine ranking, which is why he highly recommends hooking up to Google Webmaster tools.
