When people market their blogs or websites they usually target either a keyword or a set of keywords that they want to achieve a high ranking for in the search engines. The reason for this being, if done correctly, when a person types that particular keyword or string of keywords then their blog or website is listed right at the top of the search page if not somewhere on page one of any particular search engine.
Personally I couldn’t be bothered with all that as I find it boring and time consuming. Still, having said that I find it interesting, if not amusing, some of the terms that people use that lead them to my blogs. I just want to share some of them with you.
melbourne mayor 2009: This actually ranked as no.4 and points to my Melbourne Mayor Is Full Of Shit Post, which I find amusing because it seems that the only way this poor excuse for a mayor can get noticed is by slagging off at other cities.
mastering thesis theme: This one actually made it to n0.2 and the word that helped it to get to those heights was ‘mastering’ so it just goes to show how important it is to pick the right word. Before I forget it pointed to my My First Impression Of The Thesis Theme.
cool blog links: Still ranked no.1 and every time this search term is used it leads straight to my Cool Blog Links site which may be a good reason to join, don’t you think?
london bridge before collapse: The Collapse Of The Great London Bridge ranked no.4 and shows the importance posting more than just photos on your photo blog. Think about it for a bit, if all you post is a photo how are the search engines going to find you. The title alone probably won’t be enough.
bullshit.com: I was pretty disappointed when I found out that someone beat me to the bullshit.com domain, but it’s not all that bad as my blog still ranks as no.4 even for that search term.
So, what does all this prove? That keywords are important and that by using them in your title as well as your post will usually improve your SERP rankings. I say usually because you never know what Google is going to do.
My intention for Wassup Blog has always been to inform and to entertain in the hope that if I achieve this more and more people will return to see what new content I’ve come up with. This has never been a niche blog and was never intended as such. I have posted on a variety of subjects from blogging tips to making money with a few of my own short stories thrown in. I think that I have been succeeding as I’ve noticed a definite increase in Wassup’s readership.
This post falls into the entertainment category. It’s a video from the Barely Political Series featuring the sexy Obama Girl. The video was produced as a fun reaction to Obama Barack’s stimulus package. I’ve seen a few of these and I must say that this is definitely one of the better ones.
Hey guys, changing my blog theme to represent the different holiday season, whether it be Christmas, Halloween, Easter or whatever is something that I always wanted to do but never did because it was all too damn hard. Not with the FlexSqueeze Theme, once I had picked the banner and background images it only took me five minutes.
The best thing is that I know I can restore the blog to it’s previous setup with the click of the mouse. The reason it is so simple is because the FlexSqueeze Theme admin page allows me to save my previous setup as a CSV file, which I called Wassupblog.csv, so when Easter is over I just import that file and the blog is restored to it’s original setting. Pretty neat huh? I can have a separate CSV file for absolutely any occasion, that I can tweak to my hearts content and incorporate as simple as 1,2,3.
Anyway, while I’ve got your attention, I may as well write about something that bloggers do when the need arises. Bloggers as a whole stick together and when we see a mate who is promoting something worthwhile, whether its a service or perhaps an easier more profitable way of doing things, we help them by letting others know what that service or need is. We do this by linking to their blog.
I know that there are many bloggers who for one reason or another are finding it hard to keep up with their posting regime. When you’ve worked hard to build up a decent readership base the last thing that you want is to lose it just because of some unsuspected circumstance that have taken you away from maintaining your normal posting routine.
It’s important to keep your blogs updated because the moment you start to slack off people become disappointed and begin to unsubscribe and you start to lose your hard fought for readership. Once lost it can become difficult to get them back.
Now I will get to the part on how I am going to help my mate Mitch who is offering a very important and useful service that will help bloggers in this situation. Mitch, for a very reasonable price will write original articles for anyone in need. Just by reading Mitch’s blog you will see what a proficient writer he is, and not making use of his talent and letting your blog lose traction would be a terrible shame.
