Kaiserthesage’s Top 10 SEO Posts for 2013

by Jason Acidre on December 29, 2013 · 30 comments · Content, Search


2013 has been a solid year for my career, and surely, there are so many things that I have to be really thankful about.

Despite all the ups and downs that have happened to me this year, I just think that I’ve just grew stronger, as I’ve learned a lot of new things and met a lot of amazing people that certainly impacted my profession and my life as a whole.

On the other hand, 2014 looks very exciting for me. One of the main reasons is that starting on the first week of January next year – I’ll be exchanging roles with my business partner (JP Prieto) and take charge of the operations and management at Xight Interactive Asia Inc.

For the past couple of years, my role at Xight was mainly focused on brand marketing, client acquisition, strategy development and big picture. But this year, I’ll be more involved in managing the internal operations of the company – and perhaps more hours on the business development side (this also means I’ll be more hands on for client projects, which really keeps me more excited).

Although, my goals for the company wouldn’t change that much, seeing that my personal objectives for the first quarter of 2014 are to continuously improve our product (which is our people, process and culture) and to grow our revenue exponentially (through improving retention, acquisition and allocating more resources to internal projects).

Why the sudden change?

As I’ve mentioned on my most recent blog post, management hasn’t really been one of my greatest strengths (especially for larger groups, given that our company is growing steadily). And in order to become a full-stack entrepreneur, I have to be effective on that area. I want to become a better leader next year.

So what does this change means for Kaiserthesage?

Not much, since I’ll still try to write and publish a post once a week, especially now that I’m more into the holistic approach to digital marketing (not just, SEO and content marketing). This interest will certainly require me to still do intensive research, testing and documentations on my own time.

Getting back to 2013, I believe we have several highlights and milestones worth remembering, like celebrating our company’s 2nd year anniversary, organizing a successful fundraising event for one of our in-house editors, getting interviewed by the BBC, getting new talented people on board and more.

Hey Jason,

Amazing posts to read on and implement for building best seo strategy. I’ve already read few of your listed posts and must appreciate the way you present your posts. I mean you make them so unique by writing your own experience and linking best examples, resources to prove your points, plus your posts are so brief with easy language that any newbie or beginner can easily understand it. I hope you continue to educate us with your experiences and experiments.

They were very helpful pieces of SEO contents!

It is very good to read that Kaiserthesage has announced top 10 posts for the year 2013 by keeping in mind people’s comments, liking and sharing. I think every blog owner should announce the top posts at the end of the year so that people have look about these posts once again and search for the secrets due to which you kept these posts at top position. Those people who don’t have an idea about SEO can get enough information from your these 10 SEO posts. It sounds like pretty good to read this blog post and I hope you will keep it writing about SEO for this year too.

Admiring the time and energy you put into your website and detailed information you present.

It’s great to come across a blog every once in a while that
isn’t the same unwanted rehashed material. Wonderful read!
