3 Little-Known Blog Tips

Sue and I did a free webinar this afternoon, “Questions You Have About Blogging.”  It was an opportunity for people to ask questions and have us answer.  I’d say that most of the people in attendance aren’t using blogs, but they are becoming convinced that they should, no matter what their industry is.  We had an attorney from PA to ask if social media could really benefit a law firm.  Of course, the answer is a resounding YES!  Kudos to him for asking, and taking time out of his day to join the webinar.

I thought I’d like to take this opportunity to tell you about some tips that Sue and I have come up with to help bloggers

1.  If you have a blog already, go to Google keywords and type in your blog site address to see what keywords are coming up for your blog.  This can help you adjust your post titles and your tags to fine-tune your traffic and SEO.

2.  Use www.20search.com.  This is a site that will search the 20 top search engines and let you know if you’re being found.  If not, you can submit your blog address right there on the spot.

3.  Finding ideas – Use Google Alerts.  Set a Google Alert for the topic of interest to you.  You’ll get all kinds of ideas of what’s going on in your area of interest.

These are just three little tips that I haven’t see much written about, and I want to pass them along to you.

Last month, Sue created a 30-30 blog course.  If you’re already an expert blogger, this will be of no interest to you, but if you’re new or you know someone who needs some hand-holding, this is a great course and it’s very inexpensive.  We call it 30-30 because it’s set up to give you 30 minutes of work to do for 30 days.  It’s full of worksheets, and videos to guide you through every step of the way to getting a blog in place.  Each day, you will also be emailed a reminder of what you’re supposed to do that day.  If you get behind, or if you want to go back for review – no problem.  The site will be available to you forever.  The cost?  It’s only a one-time buy of $47.
