thanks for sharing your insights. I am far from being a SEO expert. What I can see that Google is a moving target. That means, if we try to aim at this moving target, it might have been moved the moment we shoot. Or at least it becomes very stressful, like day trading with stocks.
With that being said, I embrace these changes who provide authentic, genuine and fresh contact – and are engaged throughout the web. We can make less hype about Google and single tricks to game them.
congratulations to your success. The ideas you share are all very sound. I would say that people worry too much about content creation and “writer’s block”. They forget that a good part of blogging is about promotion and networking. So they end up having a great content lonely on their blogs.
I am not very obsessed by analytics but there is one number in Google Analytics that is shocking (if it is accurate): According Analytics between 60 - 70 % of visits last between 0-10 seconds even though my bounce rate is very good and the average length of visit as well.
I guess that this issue is a complex one as it can be affected by things such as loading time. This number has been surprisingly unaffected by any changes I made - even those changes Ana suggested last november.
thanks for sharing your new blogging schedule and congrats to your success in the challenge ! Nothing short of amazing.
I will finish the blogging challenge just in time on April 15th with my 70th post.
I published posts on a daily basis nearly for the entire challenge and reduced to 4 posts a week just recently. Form this week on, I'll go back to 3 posts a week which is my proven blogging frequency that gets more than enough of everything I need and want - without the stress that comes up when posting more often.
it's the most obvious thing to do nowadays to google people's names. I am more than happy to conquer the entire first page of Google while there's another guy in Germany with my name who was on the first page as well just 6 monts ago. And I googled you too, congrats, looks good.
It amazes me how careless people are sometimes when it comes to their social media profiles. Does it really matter if you are in an online business or not ?
I don't think so because self-branding affects anybody, even if you're "only" looking for a job.
I agree that many bloggers definitely underestimate the effort that's involved to promote a blog. The easiest thing is writing posts. I wonder why so many people worry about writer's block. That's not the real issue, in my opinion.
Everybody who is actively building a business should be able to come up with at least 3 good blog posts a week.
But then, and only then, the actual work begins.
You nicely give awesome sugegstions how to do that.
And as everybody sees and your traffic stats show, successful suggestions at that.
powerful insights about blog SEO. As odd as it seems, it really starts with step 1: How many did check the wrong setting accidentally or because they they were seriously concerned about their privacy and then wonder that they don't get any traffic from search engines.
As you know, I am publishing daily as well at the moment because of the challenge I am in. It's awesome, but I won't be able to maintain it after the challenge. I will go back to three times a week after that. But anyway, awesome experience
In general I would say, it makes sense to post daily or even twice a day when we get started, let's say for 6 weeks to draw the crawler's attention to our blog and then go back to the rhythm we are able to maintain on an eternal basis. What do you think ?
well done. If people do it like you, it's even an honour for the author of the original content. They get credit in words and a backlink, and their thoughts are appreciated by the prospective of another person.
thanks for sharing your advice. It makes perfect sense to me to keep paragraphs short and to choose attention grabbing and precise headlines. I just read the headline "70 % return on investment in just one hour" - it is certainly attention grabbing but what serious person would ever click on that one ? I wouldn't.
thanks for putting this informative post together.
I installed the Login Lockdown plugin right away.
I have been using WP Database backup for a quite a while and I received my daily email. For some reason, I didn't get any emails anymore with the backup. I wasn't able to figure out the cause while the plugin itself seems to work correctly. And idea ?
