I’m sick and tired | Em Fast Income


I don't know about you but I'm sick and tired!

I'm not a pro blogger though. My blogging journey started some two months ago and I have struggled to create an impact. While moving on, I have read tons of blog posts and have come across very interesting bloggers especially on the famous blog Engage platform.

During this time, four women bloggers have impressed and positively influenced me big time.
In no order:
Adrienne Smith
Ileane Smith
Kiesha Easley
Deborah Anderson

SEO Time Wasters 

This is an area where I feel people waste too much time today. Not because SEO is a waste, but many of the strategies we used to rely on have died/are dying.
SEO is becoming more and more manipulation proof. In other words, activities that can be easily replicated will have less impact than they did before.
Anyone can submit a bunch of articles, forum signatures, amass oodles of links through schemes, submit to numerous directories, etc. Spending hours per week on those activities will no longer give you the same benefits you may have realized years ago.
So you could spend your day chasing backlinks or write one really solid article for a popular blog like ProBlogger or Basic Blog Tips.

Google is Trying to Tell You Something, Are You Listening?


Google has put so many awesome tools at the disposal of bloggers and small business owners that at times, it's almost impossible to keep up with them all. Google wants you to succeed with your online endeavors but let’s face it, we all know that they are getting more then their fair share out of the deal too.

Yet, as bloggers and webmasters, when we stop to think about all the perks we get from Google, two things should stand out in our minds above the rest:

  • Google Analytics.
  • Google Webmaster Tools.

How to Promote the Ish out of Your Blog


Replace Facebook “Like” button with “Share” button
To tell you the truth, it wasn’t easy to find any evidence supporting my gut feeling that a Share button is better than a Like button.

The main obstacle was the fact that Facebook seemed to be very much like Google – in a constant state of menopause: unpredictable with widely-ranged mood swings.

I did finally find a couple of posts written recently enough to still be applicable and by people whose opinion I respect.

So for further reading on the subject, check out:
