Remarkably Good Blogging Terminology For The Modern Blogger

Remarkably Good Blogging Terminology For The Modern Blogger | terminology and translation | Scoop.it
Blogging is changing daily and it makes sense to have blog terms that help
define blogging.. a glossary of sorts to explain the terminology especially
for new bloggers. Definitions that help to ease the learning curve is
something that for those of you who have been blogging for a while probably
wished had been around when you started your blogging journey.

As you can imagine, the landscape of blogging for any blogger continues to
evolve so it’s nearly impossible to come up with every word that you’re
bound to come across, but nevertheless, I hope that this gives you the
start you need to help build up or further enhance your blogging lingo as
you journey even deeper into the world of blogging. So without further
adieu, let's begin !

Blogging Terms And Dictionary And Glossary

determines how well it will rank websites among other websites in it's
search results online.

to the owner of the blog or website or anyone of interest seeking data
regarding a particular domain.

Backlink: A way of describing how one page is linked to another online.
These are also referred to as hyperlinks. There are different types of
backlinks (e.g. inbound, outbound, internal, external etc). The more
“quality” links a website has the better. The best advice on links is to
always link to quality, relevant and similar content that is aligned to
your website.

Banner: This is typically an image used in connection with a product,
business announcement and often times used in affiliate marketing in
connection to advertising a product for a commission too. Banners come in
different sizes that you can choose from (e.g. 320x250, 728x90, 160x600,
468x60, 120x600 etc).

Bing: A search engine that was developed by Microsoft (formerly known as
Windows Live Search). In 2009, Bing and Yahoo reached an alliance agreement
where Bing would power all of Yahoo search. What this means is that the
results that you would get on Yahoo are the results that you would also see
on Bing. Their alliance was created to compete with Google.

Blackhat SEO: This is a type of SEO (search engine optimization) that is
used to achieve ranking results unnaturally. These methods typically result
in search engine penalties that include getting de-indexed, meaning having
your website removed from the search engine or experience drastic losses in
the SERPS. Those who engage in these practices are after short term gains
yet will experience long term losses and brand credibility that is hard to

Blog / Blogging: This is a type of website that enables the owners to make
entries called “posts”. The development of these posts carries itself into
the activity of "blogging". These posts vary in length and can include,
video content, image content, text content or a variation of all 3 in one.
This can also turn into an interactive experience for visitors. Visitors
that come across blog posts can also leave comments and interact with the
content owner through such means. Additionally, it is also known by
definition as a web log.

Blog Post: Differentiated from being a blog, but yet is an "entry" on a

online. The blogosphere also represents the growing community of bloggers
as well.

Bounce rate: This refers to the activity of a user visiting one page and
then leaving. It also represents how well a website can retain their
visitors on a website. The more time a visitor remains on your website the
lower your bounce rate will be. The less time a visitor remains on your
website the higher the bounce rate will be. Different types of website
content will experience various levels of bounce rates. A website whereby
the user is filling out long forms is going to see lower bounce rates
because of the time involved to complete the form versus a website that has
you click on a button to buy something leading you to another website where
you can complete your purchase. Higher bounce rates have been said to
affect your search engine rankings as well but this is still a widely
debated topic online as to the accuracy of that.

Canonical link: This is code (rel=canonical) placed within the HTML of a
webpage that helps a blogger or website owner avoid penalties from Google
for duplicate content. This also helps to improve the overall SEO on a

Captcha: Twisted words or letters you typically find on a website that
prevents an action until you’ve typed in the letters or numbers that you
are presented with. Captcha’s exist to more effectively verify if you are a
real person or a bot/machine and to minimize spamming for a specific page
or website.

Churn N Burn website: This is also referred to as “rank and bank”. This
process involves creating different domains with the intention of passing
authority to rank and generate income from cost per action networks through
a very manipulative strategy that ultimately leads to receiving heavy
penalties from search engines when you get caught. It’s a very short term
strategy that when done successfully would generate revenue. However, this
strategy has been seen as less and less effective as search engines have
improved in recognizing this type of manipulation.

Click through rate: This is how many people viewing a page that take action
and click on an advertisement (usually linked to a product) that shows up
on the webpage.

Cloaked links: It’s just as the name implies. When a link (typically an

Contextual: This can refer to anything contained within the body of content
/ text. This could be in the form of ads, keywords etc.

or blog.

action on an ad (banner, text, video etc), there is an amount that you will
earn from the advertiser as determined by the advertiser. Note that these
amounts will vary.

CPC (Cost Per Click): Very similar to CPA (cost per action) and occurs in
affiliate marketing. The blog or website owner will earn a pre-designated
amount each time a visitor clicks on an ad. Amounts in this case are also
determined by the advertiser.

CPM: This is also referred to as the cost per mile or per 1000 impressions.

advertising options in affiliate marketing that are appealing by blog and
website owners (also known as publishers).

development of websites. It works with html elements for the sake of
building and manipulating webpages.

Dofollow: This is an attribution for a link recognized by a search engine
that says they will give credit to the website or blog trying to link. It

Domain authority: Also known as (DA) and explains the strength of a

represented as a book in electronic form. Ebooks can contain information
from all types of media that include photos, videos, images complimented

blog are visiting the most frequently and the least on any given webpage.

visitors are visiting on a page. The cooler the colors will indicate the
exact opposite in showing you where visitors are landing the least on a
given webpage.

Hits: This refers to files that are downloaded on a webpage. Each time a
request is made to the server for a file, it is counted as a hit. Files can
include different elements on a webpage (e.g. all types of media on a

working with Javascript.

Back to top of page


Keywords: Words that appear multiple times within a piece of content that
help a blogger or website owner be found for a specific term. For example,
a post written on “youtube” would include the keyword youtube embedded in
the post throughout the post. However, too much use of a keyword may be
considered spamming. Use of keywords should be used wisely within the
context of content that is being written.

Keyword density: This refers to how often a keyword shows up within the
body of the content. Keywords should show up less in shorter content and
conversely more often in longer pieces of content. One can use their best
judgement in determining this or use formulas that exist online to
determine this too.

Keyword phrase: Any keyword that consists of more than one word in the
phrase. For example, a keyword phrase can be “rank in youtube”. This
keyword phrase is comprised of 3 words [rank] [in] [youtube]. These can

volume, keyword density and keyword difficulty before deciding to write
content on a specific keyword. Keyword research is extremely important as a

webpage or elements on that page to another either on the same domain or on

a need that is high quality is content that would resemble good link bait.

Long tail keyword(s): Keywords that are deemed to be “longer” keyword
phrases as represented by anything longer than 3 words. Long tail keywords

Back to top of page


Marketing: This is a strategy or set of strategies to create interest in
the products and services that a blog, website or company is selling.
Marketing will look different in how it is implemented depending on the

that are helpful in resolving consumer needs and the same can be said
whether it is addressing those needs online or offline.

Media kit: A package of materials that tells a story about your business,
brand, website / blog. Such a package can include materials that promote
your blog, highlight website analytic data and other essential information
to share with others that are interested in your website. This information

content caters to. A media kit can be helpful as your blog continues to
grow and as it garners more attention from media outlets that may want to
work with you.

Message Template: This can be referred to as a message that is very similar
in form (ether exact or with tweaks) that is sent to more than one person,
group or niche. These messages do vary in their context but follow a near
exact pattern from person to person for which the message is intended.

Microblog: Best described as a blog that allows you to publish very short
posts. The very best example of this type of blog is Twitter.

Microblogging: The act of blogging with very short posts. While Twitter is
a microblogging platform, any blog that consistently blogs with the intent
of very short or brief posts is also engaging in the act of microblogging.

Micro job: Often deemed a temporary job or task or could also be considered
a gig. Typically a small task that is paid for with a one time fee. Rates
can vary for tasks that fall into this category.

Mobile friendly: References to “mobile friendly” in the world of blogging
is about a blogs ability to be friendly to the user or visitor on a mobile
device (e.g. smartphones, tablets, iPads etc.) The blog and its content
should be easy to read and easy to interact with. This is now also
considered a ranking factor in the Google search engine and can negatively
impact a blogs overall ranking if it is not deemed “mobile friendly” by the
search engine.

Back to top of page


Navbar (Navigation Bar): This is a section on a blog or website (otherwise
known as a menu) that has sections that link to other pages of the website.
This navigation bar can be displayed horizontally or vertically depending

and it’s content. Additionally, the navbar is usually prominent throughout
the website and commonly displayed on most if not all of its pages.

Newsletters: This is information sent to a blogs audience that is part of a
mailing list. This information can include communication of updates,
contests, surveys, sales offers etc. Additionally, the frequency of a
newsletter can be weekly, biweekly, monthly or in some cases semi-annually.

News Aggregator: This can be a website, app or software that gathers news
from multiple sources and other websites online.

Niche: This is referred to as a very specific aspect or interest within a
market. A market for example could be for the food blogger: Food. However a
niche within that market would be “organic food”. The niche targets a
specific interest within the market. Bloggers often times focus on a niche
to develop their content around and will develop and market products and
services for that niche to serve the needs of a specific interest and

Nofollow: This is a tag that is recognized by search engines that signal
not to give credit to the website trying to link for the link. However,
even if a blog has received a nofollow attribution to their link, the best
practice is to acquire links that are relevant to your content and to
receive the same kind of link. While a website may not get credit for the
link due to the nofollow, the sheer fact that it is placed on another
relevant page can still increase traffic to a blog or website because of
it’s placement on a page with similar and relevant content.

Back to top of page


Online marketplace / marketplace: A marketplace typically referred to
online as ecommerce where products and services are sold through online

Outsourcing: This is the common practice of hiring someone to do a job that
you or your company has been hired to do. Even more so common in instances
where you do not have the skillset to provide a service that you are
advertising. For example, you state on your blog that you have a content
writing service. An order is placed and you hire a third party to fulfill
the service and order. You have thereby outsourced the work. Upon
completion, you pay the provider out of the funds you’ve been paid and then
provide the buyer with what they have paid for. This is a common practice
by companies both large scale and in small business.

There has been much debate over this activity. However in legitimate
reciprocal linking, the content should be similar and should provide value
to the audiences of both parties.

Redirect: This is a method of manipulating a visitors online experience.
This is most commonly seen when a user clicks on a hyperlink thinking that
they will be taken to one destination while in all reality they are taken
to another destination that is not related to the link they clicked on

with your audience (e.g. followers) on the social media platform. For

instantly share that content with all of your followers immediately.

Self-hosted: A term commonly associated with hosting. Attributes connected
with self hosting include greater customization, your own domain instead of
a subdomain, ad free (no ads show up on your website unless you want them
to), no branding other than your own etc. You control what happens with
your blog and website and are free from the restrictions that are
associated with non self hosted options.

SEO: This is also known as search engine optimization and involves methods
one uses to increase search engine visibility in search engine results for
the sheer purpose of acquiring more visitors thus increasing overall
website traffic.

SERPs: This is also known as search engine results page(s). These result
pages fall into two types: organic and paid. The organic listings are those
that are listed as determined by the search engine algorithm. Paid results
are established through keyword bidding. For the blogger or website owner,
the most visibility is achieved through getting listed on the first page
for any keyword search.

provides to the search engines an organized layout of all the content that
exists on a domain.

user leaving comments on a blog post or discussion solely for the sake of
advertising, self promotion for traffic purposes or to leave affiliate
links to generate clicks that may convert into sales for specific products
or services.

strategies. These strategies are then analyzed to see which was more

sole purpose of promoting affiliate links / websites through spamming.

Sponsored post: A post written with the intention of receiving monetary

Template: As referred to in blogging, a website or blog template is more or
less the look and feel of your site. Templates include elements such as a
navigation or menu bar, areas that are predefined for your content, email
signature, spots for imagery and options for ecommerce. If you understand
html coding language or CSS, there is the flexibility to adjust these
elements as well. Templates differ in their offerings but do often provide
a clean and professional look to your blog. There are many free templates
as well as paid templates too.

Text link: This is text on any given blog page that can be turned into a
hyperlink to either link to an inner page or an external domain.

Text link ad: This is very similar to a text link. The difference is that
it is an ad as the name implies. Often times these are purchased links or
part of an inventory whereby the blog owner has become an affiliate for a
third party website and has placed this text link ad hyperlinked within the
body of content for the purpose of generating revenue and earning a
commission that is determined by the advertiser for a product or service.

Traffic: This is also referred to as website traffic and pertains to the
number of visitors to a blog or website. Other metrics can inflate and
affect this number such as visits, hits and sessions.

Unique visit: This refers to a website visitor that visits the blog or
website at least one time in a qualified time frame which could be days to
several months. That user is then counted as a unique. Additional visits
from the same user as identified by their IP address is not counted again
as a unique visitor. This is one of many metrics that can indicate the
popularity of a website among other websites online.

URL: The acronym means that it is a uniform resource locator and is
commonly referred to as a website address, web address or http address.
This is the address of a particular domain online and may include numbers,
letters and hyphens in the url.

URL shortener: This is a common tool that has the ability to shrink a long
website address into a much more compact and manageable url. The
destination remains the same even though the website address looks
different in its shortened form.

Back to top of page


Vanity url: This is a customized url that is shortened most often for
branding purposes. Examples of this include: huff.to (Huffington Post),
bit.ly (Bitly), goo.gl (Google).

Vlog: A page or channel where your video content resides. It’s owning a
blog exclusively through video content hence the term vlog that to many is
more or less a video blog.

Vlogging: This is the practice of blogging through means of video. All
content is communicated through video to interested audiences on a vlog.
This is seen as an attractive alternative to blogging as users can leverage
large audiences on platforms such as Youtube and other large video websites
that allow users to set up channels and share content with their existing
base of visitors.

Back to top of page


Web Hosting: The act of providing storage space and a multitude of other
applications that allow for a person to build and make a website available
for access online.

Webinar: A web based presentation on a particular topic of interest.
Typically users will receive a link to where the webinar will be held, a
time and code in order to access the webinar. Webinars can have any number
of participants from less than 10 people to hundreds.

Whitehat SEO: This is a type of SEO that is viewed upon as how to get
natural rankings in a search engine. This is achieved through good overall
optimization that focuses on a websites visitors rather than the search
engine itself. This is considered a better long term strategy that
ultimately leads to better search engine rankings over time.

WordPress: A content management system that allows an individual to start a
blog online with a vast array of features that extend its functionality and
have transitioned it into much more than a basic blogging tool.

WYSIWYG website building: Commonly refers to what you see is what you get.
This does not require any knowledge of programming language such as HTML
and often allows for drag and drop website building.

Back to top of page


XHTML: Also known as extensible hypertext markup language and very closed
related to HTML and in many ways more flexible than HTML. It is a markup
language that is code in the background of your blog or website.

possible term that a blogger would come across in their blogging journey,
but I certainly hope that this provides some insight for you. If there are
additional terms that you feel should be added, don’t hesitate to leave a
comment so that this list can be updated over time as more feedback and
terms are suggested and added to make this an ultimate resource list for
you and other fellow bloggers.

(TOOL) (VIDEO) (PDF) - The tablet interpreter: glossary management tools for tablets | WordLo | terminology and translation | Scoop.it

"The advantages of tablets for interpreters are obvious: they are small and light, they don't take up much space in in your bag or in the booth. Noise - a well-known issue with traditional laptops - is no issue at all since they have neither a fan nor a built-in keyboard. Lastly, they are truly mobile devices because of their battery life.

However, tablets also have their weaknesses, such as restricted functionality (e.g. no Flash on iPads). All things considered, though, tablets make a lot of sense for interpreters, both in the booth and on the go. Many models come not only with WiFi access, but also provide the option of connecting to the internet via the mobile phone network, using their own SIM card.There are tons of different tablets out there, with various form factors and ..."
