How to manage your cloud hosting.? TrinaJones 1 3 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,...

PLEASE READ: Why I Created This Forum Belew Jump to first page76Jump to last page 10 monthskanmaster (1): Hi Bill, I have a niche website that I've been working on for a little bit now (about 6 months). I don't feel like I'm getting the traffic I thought I would get after that period of time. But here's the site I hope to get feedback from you in any form. Thanks much, Kevin
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...
Forwarding email doesn’t work tienny 3 1 yeartienny (658): I have been contacting them. Set the mx record. Still can’t work.
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...
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.
Facebook Boosts and stats gspieler 5 1 yearBelew (11716): @gspieler Congrats on figuring out what works for you and building your audience. Find a good strategy to stay engaged with them and it'll grow more.
Boosting posts on Facebook gspieler 19 1 yearBelew (11716): @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...

Is there ever too much business? Belew 4 2 yearsSteve (3649): Thoughts... 80 percent of your profit comes from 20 percent of your customers... So if you are getting lots of business from this 20 percent group, then no you cannot have enough... but if you are taking on new clients that don't give you this profitability then you perhaps can have to many, especially if it stops you going for these profitable clients.

Ad Sense? Do you use? jmolan 6 2 yearsBelew (11716): The same adsense spend that was dispersed among 4 million bloggers 10 years ago is now dispersed among 80 million bloggers. It'll make you some money, but abt 1/20th of what it might have a long time ago = consider whether or not you want to dilute the content of your site by trying to get folks to click on smth related ... or not.
Web-site reluctance jmolan 10 2 yearsjmolan (478): @TParker, very cool, if you want an interview or anything, just let me know...:-)

Just a suggestion... and @susanday can probably help with your content needs...
Twitter repeat - doesn't it get tedious? BuzzyMarketing 9 2 yearsBuzzyMarketing (31): @Belew Many times...many, many times.
Power of a blog ... data. Belew 14 2 yearsBelew (11716): I was running a language school and we needed to hire a new teacher. We put smth on Craigslist and got 50+ applications. Some very good ones, too. As we sat down to start weeding them out a guy came thru the door. "I am looking for a teaching job." He handed us his resume. I went thru it and we hired him right there, right then. That was 8 years or so ago and he still work for us.
Quick issue/problem with Twitter FrugalTravelsNepal 9 2 yearsFrugalTravelsNepal (97): Funny, but the reason I stay on Google is that they SEO their own first so I think I get a bit of a bump. I really don't like the platform because it errors a lot when I try to upload a picture. I've been trying to post elsewhere, too. So, I finally got 8,500 followers after a month or more of having 8,490 or so. They just wouldn't let the followers increase. Even Twiends only lets me follow 13 people before they put the warning on.

Top 10 Career Choices for Kids Belew 17 2 yearslunar_ranger (586): Nothing really. You can follow natural inclinations... or ride out your passion and desire- everything is going to fall short without an investment of time. I guess the trick is finding something that can give you the feedback mechanism to reward success, but also challenge and transform the seeds of desire into ability and talent. I believe that talent is trained for most. There needs to be room for failure and improvisation.

Found a nice source for images TParker 18 2 yearsTParker (529): I think it is interesting to see how each of us has chosen a distinctive style for our image use. Bill likes illustrations; Susan likes to use a combination of styles; I like having a wide selection of stock images and Jelena and Kathryn like to create custom pieces. I would bet if you look at our blogs and other work, you would see that the results of our choices are a unique presentation of our personal aesthetics.
Starting a blog on mental illness Belew 10 2 yearsSusanSpores (1): They sent me a message from WordPress, but I had no clue what they were talking about. I don't know the workings of the language of making a blog yet. I need something downloaded to make it public for outside people to see. I thought I'd worry about that when I learned some more. I'm just in the beginning of working things out. One person keeps getting onto it so I know someone can see it. I was hoping it was possible to see it. ...

Working through my Google Relationship issue KathrynLang 7 2 yearsRev (5413): @KathrynLang @KathrynLang 1) Search engines don't search. People use them to find things they, the people, are searching for; thus the name. Search bots will actually follow all the unrestricted links on your site regardless of how "cute" they are. 2) I have talked in the past about Eben Pagan's important 3 questions you need to answer for people immediately upon their arrival to your website. This is just another example of...

Building freelancing client base - how to gspieler 14 2 yearsSusanDay (2023): @Rev I have been to all of these PLR sites. I see that some packages are very cheap. I'm assuming that the content is the same in each package - meaning that it could do harm to someone's website because it is not 100% original? I don't believe that many people will rewrite / edit each article that much. Mind you, I have a lot of content I could package up, and this has given me some great ideas. Thanks!
HTML5 video players, which one works for you NicholasBodell 2 2 yearsRev (5413): Did you know there is a video player built into WordPress? If you don't need all the features, just put the URL to the video (on site or off) on a single line in your page or post and it will load and play.

Indiana Jones of the Church Is Here markziese 11 2 yearsphilipwatling (103): Nice to meet you, Mark. One dream of mine was to become an archaeologist... Strictly one residing in an armchair these days! My mother's father had a sister who married an American after (I guess?) WWII. They had two kids, one of whom now lives in San Diego. The other? Well, her and her mum live in Eugene! I have been there once, but it has featured in my book, Flight of a Lifetime :)
Gottogo history. Can you guys help me out Gottogo17 6 2 yearsFreedomSeekers (4): @Gottogo17 If I may; your company vision is helping others by giving back something they need... Like transportation. Your services will provide rides to people on off hours when there's no bus service to and from work. The name of your company is quite unusual, and highly affected if you marketing it in the right Metro areas. So my question to you is how are you planning on branding your vision. What things do you have in place to...
What a great forum! FreedomSeekers 2 2 yearsRev (5413): @FreedomSeekers It's a good beginning. Having a website is certainly better than not having one. Your posts are topical and informative. You have lots of related images. All of that is good. You are, however, making a number of beginner mistakes that may harm both your organic traffic development and your position of authority in your niche. You've come to the right place to sort this stuff out. If you are interested in doing it quickly and...

Rather than put out catalogs -- what many were doing at significant expense, I printed up a bunch of "cards" four up on a standard sheet of printer paper.

Recent Thoughts On Copyright Rev 17 2 yearsBelew (11716): Sharing generously = building trust. If people take from you and don't pay, they weren't going to pay anyway. If ppl take from you and you earn their trust, they will in time pay you to do it for them or teach them how or some combination ... but then I may be wrong.
Does anyone care about Yoast readability? Sagekreyol 8 2 yearsBelew (11716): Yoast is useful for beginners. It's also double work. You end up repeating or rewriting = redundant. Follow a few basic rules and you need not use the plug in. I have never used it and don't plan to start.
http vs https slaqjaw 10 2 yearsDansCartoons (298): Chessie, You may find a web host that offers you free SSL certificate upon signing up with their hosting plan....keep that in mind. It's an incentive that many hosting companies use in order to attract new customers. It sounds unusual for a place to tell you that unless you switch to https a certain aspect of your site won't work.....never heard of that.

Venturing out into the blogosphere... chrisleffler 18 3 yearscalskinator (28): Just a side note - SEO isn't what most people think it is - and it seems like SEO has become synonymous with "making sure you cross your T's and dot your i's across all your pages." To optimize your site for search, you can skip everything anyone has ever taught over the internet in a $97 package and still dominate. I once dominated my niche for over a decade with more than a million hits a month with only 2 backlinks (angelfire...

If Picture Worth 1000 Words, Then Video.. jycmba 3 3 yearsjycmba (2653): @SusanDay - thanks! As I've said, videos are by no means meant to replace written content. I saw a recent stat where teens and young adults are actually buying MORE Kindle ebooks, and a lot of it is based on fiction related to films. In other words, each type of media amplifies the interest of your audience in learning, reading, and probably sharing more!

I sometimes post them when I see something - well, it's not for me, but I bet someone on this forum can do it.

Best ROI Cases from Business Blogging jycmba 4 3 yearsBelew (11716): @jycmba This is a great question.
