Free Site Reports AND Juicy Dofollow links? That sounds too good to be true, but that is exactly what you can get at the AboutUs.org site. We all like free stuff, right? And we all need to know that our SEO is well optimized, because that will increase our online visibility in Search Engine Results, right?
That’s the theory, anyway. It’s a brave blogger (stupid blogger?) who ignores their SEO – Search Engine Optimization. Continue reading
Many bloggers don’t know how to do a Website Health Check. Unfortunately, it’s not enough to know basic SEO, always do what you’re supposed to do, and then just hope for the best. Nobody’s perfect. And everyone needs to be able to know exactly what Google’s web crawlers will pick up as ‘errors’ when crawlers crawl your site.
Solution: every website owner needs to have a few online Health Checking Tools in their Tool Box. Health Check Tools will give you objective, factual reports about the true health of your website. And you do need to have those objective third party Reports, because they show you how your blog really gets ‘seen’ through the objective eyes of web crawlers – not just how you think or hope that it is seen.

Setting up Google Publisher is the final step in the 3 step branding process of verifying ‘You’ as Author, all your online Content as Yours, and your website or business as a verified Google Publishing Platform.

Have you heard people banging on about Rich Snippets, and how every blogger must, must, must, know about it and use it? The keyword ‘Rich Snippets’ seems to turn up everywhere you look, but what is it really? It’s probably not what you think it is. It’s not some wiz-bang tool that will instantly bring you truckloads of traffic. It’s not even an essential software tool that you must use if you want to write, rate, and promote your Review Articles in Google Search Results.
Quite simply, it is a Google software tool that you use to test if your Google Plus Authorship links, and Google Plus Publisher links are working properly. That’s all. It’s no big deal. Setting up Google Authorship is a big deal, and something you should do, as soon as you can, but the Rich Snippets Testing Tool itself, isn’t. It is, what it says it is – a Testing Tool.

Or like trying to peer through someone’s letter box and have a conversation, or doing keyhole surgery…or something like that. I needed to super-size my operating table into a workable space so I could be creative! Yes! Continue reading
