Some Blogging Love I Need To Share

Yep, the Easter celebrations is over and I am a cool 2 kilos heavier. That will teach me for stuffing my face. Maybe I should give Troy’s Elvis Workout a go. Either way I definitely have to start working out again. Especially now that I’m getting older and it’s so much easier for the weight to creep on.

I’ve been visiting a few sites of late and I’ve decided to share a bit of link love. As you can see, Troy was the first on the list:homage:  

It’s very important that one looks after ones blog and the best way to do that is to keep it secure. The last thing that you want is for someone to hack it and to watch all that hard work disappear before your eyes. Sure, you could get the info back but it sure isn’t easy. I found Barb’s post on Blog Security very intriguing, especially because it introduces a plugin I’ve never heard of.

My good mate Mitch has written a cool post about Ten Writing Tips in 3 Minutes. Mitch knows his blogging and you can learn a lot from him. Something he does quite a lot is internal linking. Partly because it’s a good SEO tactic but also because it can lead to people staying longer on his blog if they choose to explore his links. Read the rest of this entry

Free Broken Link Checker

I thought it was only the other day that I wrote about checking your links when in actual fact it was close to a year ago. Oh, how time flies. That post was called Google Tip, Check For Broken Links. It was an important post because broken links can be very harmful to your blog or website. I mentioned a couple of free broken link checkers in that post. In this post I’m going to go one better.

Before I get to that though I want to bring back SEO Sam to reinforce the importance of checking for broken links.

You see, broken links are the weak link in all your SEO efforts to get noticed by Google. In essence broken links tell Google you don’t care. This in turn turns Google off your site.

The reason for this post is to introduce you to a new tool that has been brought to my attention. It’s been awhile since I’ve linked to another blog, which just goes to show how much I liked this post. And no, it had nothing to do with the fact that the blog owner, Barb Brady, is a pretty blonde.  :cheesey: Read the rest of this entry

Sire Is Dead Peter Rises In Comments

Yes, you heard right, Sire is now Dead. While he has had a long and successful career I have decided to lay him down to rest. I made that decision in the comments section of one of HotBlogTips posts. More specifically on Brian’s Fireside Chat post. In this post Brian is chatting with Mitch Mitchell of I’m Just Sharing, another very popular blogger. 

They were discussing some of the many blogging topics that interest many bloggers, including guest posts, Google penalties, blog promotion, niche blogging and many more interesting topics.

I decided to finally kill Sire off when Brian mentioned that he came to this blog to see Peter Pelliccia. That’s when I decided to give Sire the flick. After all, potential customers aren’t really interested in pseudonyms. Nope, they’d rather do business with a real person.

Comments Now by PeterOnce the decision was made I decided to go to Gravatar.com to update my Gravatar. I decided on using the image you see in this post.

Did you know that you can have multiple Gravatars linking to different emails? I’m thinking of linking this one to my latest Online Betting Site. If you haven’t got a Gravatar I suggest you head on over there and grabbing one. It’s free and amongst other things you’ll probably find you will get more comments accepted than you would without one.

The problem is that not everyone will recognise my new blogging personality. That’s why on some of the comments I’ve been leaving I’ve been using Peter (aka Sire). Not a problem, it just means that I need to get out there and start leaving comments, like I used to in the old days. Well, maybe not as many. Lets face it, I just don’t have the same drive any more.  :phew!!:

Commenting Helps To Build Your Presence

I’ve always been a strong advocate for leaving good quality comments. Doing so is a great way to build your online presence. I’ve actually done a whole lot of posts on comments. There was one way back in 2009 called Comments The Life Blood Of A Blog. I also did one in 2010 called Teaching People The Proper Way To Comment where I actually graded all the comments on the post.

And there are so, so many more posts concerning comments. You can use the Google Search feature over there on the right just to get an idea of how many posts there actually are.

So, if you see Peter with the above image commenting on one of your posts you know that in reality Sire actually lives, he just has a new name.  :thumbup_ee:
