5 Best Pumpkin Patches and Farms for Guelph Families

By: Julia Drysdale, SEO Guelph

My family loves going to pumpkin patches and farms every fall. Here is a list of our 5 favourites:

1. Strom’s Farm and Bakery

Strom’s is my family’s favourite pumpkin patch. I took my little guy for the first time when he was only two months old and since then pumpkin photos at Strom’s has become an annual tradition.

Hours: The market and bakery is now open daily from 9:30-6:00; it’s a good place to buy home made pies, baked goods, jams, coffee or a pumpkin. Continue reading 5 Best Pumpkin Patches and Farms for Guelph Families

How important is Fresh Content for SEO?

This is a common question that I get when I speak to local business owners in Guelph. The best answer that I can give is that it depends on what genre you are optimizing for. If you have a website optimizing for an industry that continuously has hot off the press topics that are being pumped out onto the internet then I would say it’s very important to have constant fresh content. For example if you are a local news company in Guelph and want to rank for keywords such as “local news in Guelph” then it’s important to have fresh content. In an industry like this it would be a disservice to the user if you were to serve them with old news articles that are a week old.

Top 5 SEO Tips for 2016

This is my top 5 SEO observations for 2016. I did a blog like this a few years ago and had a good response so thought it was about time I jumped back into it.

1.) Consistency is Key

It’s important to keep the momentum going. If you look at the most popular youtube channels, they update a few times a week. There isn’t a single Youtube channel (besides VSauce) that has a regular following from updating their content once a month. When people like something, they will want more. The same for SEO. Companies they go through batches of tweeting and then being inactive for months on end generally struggle to maintain a following.

8 Top Autumn Leaves Locations

By: Julia Drysdale, SEO Guelph

Happy fall everyone! Today is a beautiful, sunny day in Guelph. I personally love autumn – the beautiful changing leaves, scarves, pumpkin everything and the cool, crisp air.

Here are the top places in or around Guelph to admire autumn leaves:

1. Guelph Lake. Guelph Lake offers some nice hiking trails with gorgeous views of the changing foliage. Hurry quick because Guelph Lake is only open until October 15 this year.

2. Starkey Hill Conservation Area. Starkey Hill is just outside of Guelph in Arkell. The lookout point is well worth the hike up to see the beautiful view for miles around. It is a four kilometre loop trail suitable for walking (no cycling is allowed). I recently went on a hike there with my toddler and mum – it was a great morning outing. Many people like to walk their leashed dogs here. This conservation area is free.

3. Guelph Arboretum. What better place to enjoy trees in fall than at the University of Guelph Arboretum! Enjoy a walk along the trails or play frisbee golf while taking in the red, yellow and orange leaves. This Guelph gem is free and open to the public.

4.Eramosa River Trail. I like to grab a coffee or tea and then walk along the pathway beside the Eramosa River. You can start downtown at the wooden covered bridge and head east towards Victoria Road. This trail is well-maintained and pretty.

5. Hilton Falls in Milton. Highlights here include the bike trails, dog-friendly hiking trails through the woods and a 10-metre waterfall. The daily entrance fee is $6.75 for adults, $5.75 for seniors, $5.00 for children 5-14 and children 4 and under are free. My family plans on going mid-October so we might see you there.

6. Cheltenham Badlands. This striking spot is located about a fifty minute drive outside of Guelph in Caledon. As of May 4, 2015 the Badlands were temporarily closed to the public to ensure the long-term conservation of this site. Hopefully it re-opens soon since this is a beautiful place to see autumn leaves.

7. Forks of the Credit Provincial Park in Alliston. My friend claims that this is the best place in Ontario to see the changing leaves. It is part of the famous Bruce Trail. The day use fee per vehicle is $10.75. It is about an hour and twenty minutes drive from Guelph.

8. Tobermory. I realize that Tobermory is a three hour drive from Guelph so it doesn’t exactly qualify for in or around Guelph, BUT it is too gorgeous up there not to list. The entire drive there on highway 6 will make you want to stop the car every ten minutes to take another photo of the beautiful fall foliage. I like to stay overlooking the harbour at the Tobermory Princess Hotel. Some gorgeous spots to enjoy nature up there are the Bruce Peninsula National Park and taking a ferry to Flowerpot Island.

I hope that you enjoy this beautiful autumn in Guelph!

Fake Canada Revenue Scam – 8009311026 Beware

I have been getting a lot of calls from the phone number 800 931 1026 recently. This is a scam company located abroad that is scraping companies phone numbers and business names from the internet. If you have received a phone call from this number be sure to report it to Revenue Canada. This scam has been going on for many years and has recently hit Guelph with a spat of local companies complaining of this scam. Continue reading Fake Canada Revenue Scam – 8009311026 Beware

“Mobilegeddon” – Mobile-friendly Websites

On April 21, 2015, Google went live with it’s new search algorithm for mobile devices. Google now clearly favours websites that are mobile-friendly. This recent development has been called, “Mobilegeddon.”

I am not surprised by this news. Increasing numbers of people are using their smartphones to search for information on Google. It can be frustrating using your smartphone and finding a site that does not work without constant zooming in or pinching. It makes sense that Google would favour sites that work well on desktops and smartphones. Continue reading “Mobilegeddon” – Mobile-friendly Websites
