Do 300 or 400 word post still rank on Google vicky4227 14 9 monthsGeorgiTodorov (4): I think I answered the question.
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...
Question about an abandoned blog vicky4227 6 1 yearRev (5413): @vicky4227 Please fill out your profile information so we can find you online. I would like to read your blog.
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...
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...
Beginning Questions for New Business Blogger BKatt 11 1 yearBKatt (28): Thanks @Rev for the reminder to update my profile and for generously sharing your PDF! Already, it has answered several questions I haven't thought to ask yet.
Testimonial or review of my book? tienny 10 1 yeartienny (658): @gspieler Do you mean to give specific questions for them to answer?
Numbers versus People Belew 20 2 yearstienny (658): Interesting :) What does "Here lies a man standing up!" really mean? Because 1. I don't know when to interpret it literally or 2. Is there a meaning behind the words?
Why Do I Even Read the News? Bait & Switch? Belew 10 2 yearsSusanDay (2023): @DansCartoons very true!
Does anyone write web copy for businesses? TParker 10 2 yearsBelew (11716): We just launched a duplicate site for a new client. First order of business... web copy. He did a relatively good job on the first site ... but it needs to be tweaked = updated and more focused. The new site needs to be rewritten and focused.
What's Weird about Where You Live? Belew 17 2 yearsKathrynLang (370): There's some of the ones in Moundville. There are three other locations in Alabama that have mounds as well.
How to Make Heart Felt Digital Connections jmolan 14 2 yearsSusanDay (2023): Must 'ave been some ghost story! @Belew
Why does your web site need privacy? jmolan 10 2 yearsjmolan (478): @TParker @Rev I think your both right. The reality of pestering phone calls outweighs the off chance someone will avoid me because I'm not as public as a big Corporation. Heck they can check me out find me other ways. Jack

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.

Finished book. Now what? Natishafost 6 2 yearsKathrynLang (370): What kind of read through are you looking for? Beta readers can give you thoughts on how the manuscript feels to them. An editor usually only looks at format, grammar, and such.
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.

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!

Social Media Marketing and Copywriting Alessio Jump to first page31Jump to last page 2 yearsRev (5413): Once, when I was in an MLM business, I wanted to reach out to people I knew could be looking for my products if they only knew I was there. 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. I cut them out and then cut between phone number tabs on the leading edge... you know, those tear-off phone number tabs you see on posts on...
How to get out of a funk CoolHandLuke 30 2 yearsphilipwatling (103): Thanks for the advise. I do agree though that relationships are everything and have proved very useful in the past. Once someone in the bank refused to let me withdraw money from a cleared cheque... A cheque that bounced a few days later! I believe he only did that because he knew me! I 'market' my book as one that brings hope and I hope that is a view that anyone can appreciate. Over the years on Twitter I have gathered some odd followers; I...

Besides Travel also doing Airbnb too. Love to travel and have fun and want residual income or pennies a oage I saw today, but I think we know you can't get too much for free or without work? Something for nothing but what about the easy sales of a lot of hot air that is referred to a bit on these forums? I...
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.
Why Free No Longer Works Winsome1 24 2 yearsBelew (11716): @Winsome1 We almost connected ... We talked. She came to the Bay Area for another event and we had decided to meet F2F. Didn't happen. Still waiting to hear from her ... or not. Maybe I need to just figure out how to do it myself.

If you had a do over...then what? Belew 6 3 yearsBelew (11716): @KimSutton Thank you for asking. I, too, like the path I have taken... I think. But there were some turning points that could have taken me in a different direction. When I was in the Navy I was screened and selected for flight school = zoom zoom. But I had a broken nose at the time, or it was broke previously and not repaired properly. I couldn't tolerate the differences in air pressure when changing altitudes. It didn't occur to me at the...

Blogs aren't the #1 thing? rcayeras 9 3 yearsBelew (11716): @MartinTolovski I think that even after the blog has turned 20 years old it will still weild a bug impact... You either write a blog and convert it to a video or ... create an infographic... or something you create will get blogged abt. Blogs are king for me.
African writing semanticdmax 8 3 yearssemanticdmax (25): Thanks so much. Checking it out now
ComicSquare: A good new web to publish comic macnamal 22 3 yearsBelew (11716): I had a professional comic artist in Japan offer me some praise for my many Wilby images. I wonder out loud here, if I were to put voice to my many images ... even in the form of thought bubbles, I wonder if I have another medium. Has anyone here given voice to their comics ... audio or text? How'd that work out for you?
Using video for your ad revenue? NicholasBodell 9 3 yearstammysoffices (220): I was able to see the video @belew - strange? It looks really interesting, not sure it can pick up like YouTube and would still like to connect it to YouTube (is that possible @NicholasBodell?). Also, can you do 'live stream', like host a 'show' and have guests or others on with you.
Obnoxious Copy Review Request seoapexpredator 26 3 yearsSteve (3649): asked me to chime in ... love it, if you have a point to make, make it don't ask others to make it for you ... it erodes your authority.

Where to start out online ... Jscottyonrocks 23 3 yearsSeniorpreneur (226): @Jscottyonrocks/ I found my calling as a seniorpreneur (senior entrepreneur) at the age of 65 where I probably spend 90% of my time online. You seemed to be focussed in on health care & wellness for the aging people. If this is your passion I would start here and do some research to pin point an area(s)where you would be most helpful. You mentioned skilled care & assisted living. Find out what is going on in these areas today and if you...

Any opinions on Growth Driven Design(GDD)? lunar_ranger 10 3 yearsRev (5413): Sometimes people just look for fancy names for what most of us call "busy work". If we can define it and talk/write about it and keep 10,000 people busy doing it, it must be a career, right?
For bloggers who like writing about software rcayeras 5 3 yearsrcayeras (439): I'm sharing ad ad that I saw. I'm not the one looking for the blogger. I sometimes post them when I see something - well, it's not for me, but I bet someone on this forum can do it. These ads are best responded to as soon as possible - they tend to make decisions quickly. My experience with these postings - you're talking to the hiring manager, who could be a Director or higher. As far as how to respond, what information to provide - it's a...

Difference btw paid and search content Belew 18 3 yearsLizG (55): @Belew Yes, it's usually lower across the board. Usually less traffic, less page views, less time on site, and lower conversion rate than organic. Paid usually sits right between organic and referral with a few exceptions. Product ads usually out perform other channels. So if someone sells Saeco coffee makers, most of their revenue is usually attributed to Google Shopping. Display ads and dynamic search ads perform the worst in terms of...

I was warned for plagiarism ... guess who? Belew 7 3 yearsKitK (160): I read that rel=cannonical code is needed when republishing articles even your own, to avoid negative SEO implications. At least at Google.
When Were You Last Pleasantly Surprised? Belew 2 3 yearsjycmba (2653): Surprising pretty often - my high school friend Mark said I was an optimist. I think I'm a pragmatic realist who just likes to find things that work. Being negative and expecting the worst has never helped me. Sure, I've been blindsided when I missed something. That's why I need to surround myself with other points of view. But I know that I'm not a scientific wiz or even a Mensa genius - everything I've ever achieved has come from an...

Best ROI Cases from Business Blogging jycmba 4 3 yearsBelew (11716): @jycmba This is a great question. AND I have case studies of business owners who added blogging to their mix only to the point where it began generating leads which became business that resulted in income. It is good form to calculate time invested and divide that number in to income. For blogging much like all other jobs you need to look long term. It takes a while to see your return. And how far back do you go? I spent 20 years in Asia...
Where to Get Free Images for Blogs Belew 8 3 yearsSusanDay (2023): The terms of use for that particular website are quite broad: "How can I use licensed content?

Content that is too long abandoned Belew 13 3 yearslunar_ranger (586): I guess it would be logical to serialize some content... Treat them to a 10 course meal instead of a Thanksgiving feast. If it's dry (not all content is supposed to be exciting)or if its technical, personally I would rather have installments and a reason to want to continue.

Most Overrated Marketing Tactic Belew 13 3 yearsLizG (55): @Belew Yes, for the most part. Working for an agency, a client only has so many hours in a month.

China vs US Engagement Online Big Question! Belew 1 4 yearsBelew (11716): I am leaving for Shanghai in just over a week. I have China on my mind.

Simple
When Do Infographics Become Overkill? Belew 3 4 yearsBelew (11716): @Lenderman33 In the above example of placement for images in social, I would have done a series of posts/infographics to allow the reader to pick the one they want. I might want to know about Facebook and not care about Twitter header for example. By trying to put too much info in one place = think long-form content, the reader is NOT served.
