Old article but still makes interesting reading, especially for a newbie.
Interesting take on why he took blog comments off his blog and its effect on his traffic…which was none…
Basically content is key, write for humans not machines (seo), know why you want high traffic, and don’t oversell your readers.
So, basically is the answer is we don’t know but it certainly doesn’t hurt to be the oldest belle at the ball. That’s mostly for user experience rather than seo purposes, though.
Four are free! Three are paid.
I haven’t even heard of some of these. Lol.
The privacy is included with my hosting company but this posts gives decent instructions on how to do it yourself.
I generally set mine to 7 just because that is my favorite number. Never occurred to me how the number could be effecting load time. Still debating having the “read more” tag. Personally, I am not a fan…but professionally….???
Short but sweet. Read other blogs and find one to emulate and then add a bit of you into the equation. Like this blog, if I was using it for its intended purposes, would be blogging for dummies, a sort of anti-thesis of problogger and the other gurus. I am, after all, no guru.
Every time I tweet, I get a small amount of traffic to my blog. Every single time. I really should get off my duff and tweet more often! Lol. Or at least program some auto-tweets or something…
Pagerank is not as big of a thing as it was when I first started blogging. Still, it is useful to know and this post breaks down the basics of pagerank.
Awesome post breaking down how often a blog needs to post to reach the goals of revenue, readers, or traffic. Actually, I think that consistency is more the key than number of posts. Either way, I struggle to not procrastinate.
I am thinking of going number 7 “Be More Extreme than the Others” on MsCrookedHalo. Not to extreme, though, that I stray from being a vanilla site though. Lol.
Some of this was over my head. I never really understood all of the “meta” stuff so it is good to know that now I won’t have to.
