I'm bringing a concept from the US to Nepal. FrugalTravelsNepal 1 2 monthsFrugalTravelsNepal (97): I escaped western life 9 years ago and have lived in Nepal for the past 8 years. I ended up getting a 14 room guest house about 5 years ago, just one year before the disastrous earthquakes of 2014. The guesthouse business was so good everyone who had to rebuild their home decided to make a guesthouse. So, rather than compete with the local people I've decided to do something different. I'm taking the furniture from our rooms and renting them...
Spiritual Business Blogger lgrocott85 3 2 monthsFrugalTravelsNepal (97): It looks like you have a real passion for your work and spirituality. I'm not sure if you just want to be a life coach or if you will have products. I live in Nepal and it's amazing how nice the handcrafts are. I'm always trying to promote Nepal, not for gain, but because its people are so kind and make such great things. You can walk down the street and see women knitting hats and gloves or men carving incredible wooden doors. Anyway, I was...

How to manage your cloud hosting.? TrinaJones 1 4 monthsTrinaJones (1): We all know that AWS, DigitalOcean, Google Cloud, etc. are among the best hosting providers and possess a good reputation in the hosting world. Beside this, it is also a fact that it can be a very tricky to host and manage the cloud hosting especially if your are newbie or not a techie guy. Even, some of the techie guy fell short in hosting and management of cloud hosting and that's where the managed cloud hosting platforms like Cloudways,...

Seniorpreneur 2 8 monthsRev (5413): As an online presence consultant and personal mentor, at the age of 66, I am doing exactly what I choose to do and will, allowing reasonable health, do it until the day I die. My "I Can" motto is: "To give as much value as I can to as many as I can as often as I can for as long as I can!" This is not an onerous or difficult thing. It is what I choose and want and enjoy.

Plz! Somebody Stop Me from My New Plan ... Belew 12 11 monthsBigPoppi (100): @Rev - just curious how you got those 15,000 and 25,000 members and over what time period. Personally, I'm on FB to make Money and create a pixeled list I can market to over and over again. There's a big difference between that and real messages, real questions and lots of real answers which is a lot of WORK, like you say. People are looking to make money and do it in a way that allows them to have time and freedom for themselves and...

How Do You Handle Guest Post Requests? Belew 8 1 yearJeanetteSHall (4): The guest posts I have done (meaning have written a post for someone to end up on their site) either have been altered because their word length requirements had changed, or their sites no longer exist. Otherwise was a waste of my time. Have tried to get other people to post on my site, but since I do not use a common operating system we have trouble getting the information to pass between us. Did have one great experience with author...

Help with converting a multiniche blog vicky4227 19 1 yearvicky4227 (43): Lol, hi guys. Bill is right. Sorry I had to disobey some tips I got here. Deleted poor and low ranking contents. Rebranded the site and have been blowing steam unstoppable for weeks now. Give up? Never. Bill, if you don't shut this forum down soon, I'll be back to give results. Right now I think the deletion and niche rebranding was the best decision so far. Thanks all.

Why would H1 and H3 tags matter in a blog? rcayeras 7 1 yearrcayeras (439): The guidelines for using heading tags came from an agency. I looked into tags - looks like I was also mistaken about the importance of H1 and H2 -- looking at mentioning H3-H6 still seems irrelevant. The postings are on wordpress. I guess I'm good at writing at editing, and have much to learn about what SEO pays attention to. My grasshopper question - how much play does...

Can you send blog posting directly? egwebster 8 1 yearrcayeras (439): "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...

Numbers or consistency? BKatt 14 1 yearSusanDay (2023): @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 yearBKatt (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 1 yearRev (5413): 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...
