Now that I'm learning from Bill, I will be writing my blogs much differently.

Call for magazine articles SusanDay 10 9 daysSusanDay (2011): @gspieler Thank you.

Facebook Advertising... Rev 43 13 daysrcayeras (436): What I did is probably the same everyone else does. Look at the default words the ad selects from the original description, and put in what I guess are better SEO words. The audience - I didn't think it out. I limited it to San Jose, which was the location of the event. But most people can drive, and most commute somewhere to work.

How Do You Handle Guest Post Requests? Belew 6 16 dayslunar_ranger (586): I give some worthy, Guest Posters a solid rel="nofollow" link and if they're putting up something really consequential or I see value in a future relationship I might give them a brand mention and a "dofollow". Most fall into the category of 3rd world farmed out copy, spammy links- those get a "nice try" from me. Google looks at both "nofollow" and "dofollow" links- both have value. In part...
adding comment section to wordpress posting egwebster 2 17 daysgspieler (484): @egwebster Not sure how you set up your Wordpress blog. I also use Wordpress for my blog and the "comment" section was just part of the design. See a screenshot that shows the bottom of the blog page.
Can you send blog posting directly? egwebster 8 18 daysrcayeras (436): "Boosting" on Facebook works. People outside of meetup became members and some attended my last workshop. The ROI - The physical attendance was about what I expected - 0.1% signed in. $35 over a 12-day period to reach 2000 - 6000, 3 new clients signed in. The increased membership and followers on 2 meetup pages and 1 facebook page - about 30. That may not sound huge, but neither was the investment. Facebook has been around for years...

Cloud Hosting - What the??? SusanDay 9 1 monthtienny (655): @Rev What do you mean? Do you mean there are many ways to earn a living or storing own data?
Wondering Why You Need to Self Host? SusanDay 12 1 monthtienny (655): @Rev Thanks for giving the overall picture. I like GoDaddy’s customer service experiences. They have Singapore number. Thus it is likened to make local calls. I have been calling them and I like the experiences they give.
Numbers or consistency? BKatt 14 1 monthSusanDay (2011): @BKatt I have two sites - one I posted 3 x a day for six months, the other 6 x a day for five months. That was nearly three years ago. I dropped posting down to two or three times a day, then once a day, and now one of the sites only gets one post a week; the other one a day. All those posts I put up are my little soldiers working away to get lots of attention. I know this because even though I have dropped the number of posts dramatically the...

Is SEO work on previous posts worth it? BKatt 4 1 monthBKatt (28): I am using Yoast... as best I know how at this point. I usually tweak their snippets. I also add a title and description in the WP dashboard below. And I edit the permalink per suggestions in my thread about categories, tags, etc.
Categories, Tags and Description BKatt 17 2 monthsRev (5386): While categories do play a role in SEO, especially if you set them to be part of the permalink, they are primarily for helping produce a favorable user experience (UX). From this perspective you generally want one category designated for each post. There will be some exceptions to this "rule" but only when a post clearly and distinctly speaks to 2 or more categories. In that case you might first consider breaking the post up into as...

I really don't care that I didn't make a lot of money on the book. It has served me very well. I learned early on not to expect to get rich writing a book...for most of us. We'll see what happens. In terms of the movie stuff, I had excellent representation. My agent has a contract with a major entertainment law firm in Los Angeles. I...

Boosting posts on Facebook gspieler 19 2 monthsBelew (11704): @jmolan Good morning! There's a LOT that looks like it works. A little that actually does. I am always skeptical of someone who has done one thing well - sold their widget for example - who is now an expert on how to sell widget. Sure they did it. But can they do it again? If so, then why not keep selling their widget? Why are they suddenly widget sales experts? I have dozens ... more actually - of firsthand case studies in multiple...

What Happens If Massively Unfollow Twitter Belew 123 3 monthsFrugalTravelsNepal (88): One would think that someone who got their first 10k or 45k would understand about content.
