Donc, vous avez un blog et que vous souhaitez le commercialiser et faire un blog avec succès. Comment est-ce que tu fais ça? Comment tirez-vous les lecteurs et de les garder à revenir pour plus? Il y a plusieurs façons d'obtenir votre blog là-bas et connu par d'autres. Cela peut être connu comme difficile pour certains et juste assez facile pour les autres. Tu ne vas pas arriver à quelque chose d'un peu mise en place d'un blog et en espérant que les gens vont le trouver et le lire. Tu ne vas pas à gagner tous les liens, ni un classement plus élevé des moteurs de recherche en ayant juste un blog. Tout cela fait partie du blog marketing. Lorsque vous créez un blog, bien sûr, il est inouï. Personne ne sait rien sur le blog à moins que vous leur donnez le lien et montrer à eux. Cependant, pour un nouveau blog qui n'a jamais été vu, il y a beaucoup de façons de l'obtenir là-bas et connu. Vous avez juste besoin de savoir comment. La première chose que vous pouvez faire est de permettre à des flux RSS être prises à partir de votre blog. Permettre à d'autres sites et blogs pour publier votre même blog exact. Lorsque vous faites cela, ils vous donnent un lien vers votre blog, et de dire aussi à leurs lecteurs tout sur votre blog. Vous obtiendrez plus de trafic que jamais avec cet outil. Les flux RSS sont merveilleux pour promouvoir et obtenir votre blog là-bas. Mettre à jour votre blog fréquemment. Nous ne pouvons pas mettre suffisamment l'accent sur cette astuce. Si vous dites à vos lecteurs que vous allez mettre à jour votre blog quotidien, puis le faire. Si vous leur dites que vous allez écrire dans votre blog hebdomadaire, faites-le. Vos lecteurs sont ce qui rend votre blog avec succès. Vous ne pouvez pas réaliser cela au début, et vous aurez peu de lecteurs au début aussi, mais vous finirez par construire une base de lecteurs et avoir des gens de vérifier votre blog régulièrement. Peut-être que vous ne prévoyez pas de dire à vos lecteurs comment souvent vous mettre à jour votre blog. Cependant, pensez à ce sujet, si vous lisez un blog sur une base hebdomadaire, et vous vous attendiez à voir le blog que vous aimez lire mis à jour au moins une fois par semaine, vous seriez très déçu de constater que ce n'était pas. Bien sûr, les choses se produisent qui pourraient vous empêcher de mettre à jour, et que l'on attend, et excusés, mais semaine après semaine peuvent vous blesser et vous faire perdre des lecteurs. Pendant que vous travaillez sur votre base de lecteurs, et d'essayer de gagner des lecteurs, vous allez constater que des commentaires sur les blogs qui sont pertinentes à la vôtre va sûrement aider. Trouver un blog qui est sur le même sujet à la vôtre, ou à peu près et laisser des commentaires. Vous pouvez également faire une piste de retour avec vos messages de blog pour commenter sur votre propre blog. Cela sera probablement plus de donner probablement quelqu'un d'autre l'envie de suivre vers votre blog. Ce qui sera bon pour elle aussi. Commentant sur les blogs qui obtiennent de nombreux commentaires fera le vôtre être vus par les personnes intéressées par ce marché. Vous gagnerez du trafic et les lecteurs de cette façon, et il est facile ainsi que la gratuité. Apprendre et appliquer SEO à vos blogs. SEO est l'optimisation des moteurs de recherche. Vous allez trouver que si vous voulez que votre blog aller partout, vous avez besoin SEO, et vous avez besoin de savoir comment l'utiliser à l'avantage de votre blog. Tout comme un site Web, un blog sera mieux optimisé. Concours, sondages et même des jeux! Génial que vous commercialiser efficacement votre blog. Avoir des jeux ou des concours, des enquêtes sur diverses choses serait beaucoup de plaisir, et quelque chose qui va garder vos lecteurs à revenir. Tout le monde aime gagner des choses, et vous pouvez également le prix que vous êtes loin de donner pertinents pour le marché vous faites la promotion de votre blog. Alors que le bon contenu est quelque chose que vous aurez besoin pour votre blog, vous aussi vous voulez vous assurer qu'il est contenu original aussi bien. Vous pouvez commercialiser un blog avec quelque chose qui est copié et que vous ne possédez pas les droits. Plagiat va vous causer des ennuis avec Google, ainsi que la personne qui a écrit à l'origine du contenu. Assurez-vous que tous vos messages sont ceux qui ne vous possédez les droits aussi. Ceci est une grande chose à connaître et à faire lorsque vous commercialisez votre blog. Les communiqués de presse sont également un excellent moyen pour faire connaître votre blog. L'envoi d'un communiqué de presse ou d'avoir un fait pour vous est une excellente idée. Vous constaterez qu'ils sont encore abordables pour la plupart des budgets, et certaines compagnies offrent un package deal. Qui pourrait résister à un accord tel que celui? Surtout quand vous êtes budgétisation et essayer d'obtenir le maximum de vos fonds. Commentaires sur un blog sont également un aspect très important de blog marketing. Vous voulez être sûr que vous répondez toujours et reconnaissez les commentaires qui sont faits sur votre blog ainsi que d'autres. Lorsque vous montrez que vous êtes une personne réelle qui peut tenir une conversation, vous montrez autres que vous êtes réel et que vous avez bel et bien les meilleures intentions pour votre blog. Assurez-vous qu'aucun commentaire ne reste sans réponse. La commercialisation d'un blogue vient naturellement pour certains et peut être un peu plus difficile de se concentrer sur d'autres. Une autre chose importante que vous voulez faire pour votre blog est d'être sûr que vous trouverez des liens. Echange de liens, obtenir un moyen de liens, et demandent de plus en plus de liens. Vous aurez jamais assez de liens vers votre blog. Les liens plus le mieux dans ce cas. Blog marketing est pas difficile à faire. Juste être sûr que vous suivez tous les conseils éprouvés et éprouvés que les autres parlent et vous ne vous tromperez pas. Il suffit de ne pas abandonner et continuer sur le marketing. https://www.linkedin.com/in/ericdrula

I’m going to share with you three ways to go beyond basic keyword research. Although keyword research should still be a part of your SEO, it’s only the start.

I’m confident that these advanced research methods will add rocket fuel to your marketing, attract targeted traffic, earn valuable links, and ultimately boost your revenue.

I will explain in detail how to use each of these powerful research methods.

First of all, let me preface this by revealing something you may not know about Google: the algorithm changes 500-600 times per year.

That’s a rate of nearly 1.5 changes a day!

Even with all the marketing ability I’ve developed running my various businesses, I can’t hope to keep up with the rapid pace of change in the Google search algorithm and its machine learning. Odds are, neither can you.

So, now that you understand the why, let’s dive into the how. This is how we do keyword research in today’s world....

How Voice Search Will Forever Change SEO

How Voice Search Will Forever Change SEO | The Perfect Storm Team | Scoop.it
'Voice search is the fastest growing type of search. Already, 55% of teens and 41% of adults use voice search on a daily basis, and that number is only growing. 

The allure of voice chat is undeniable—it’s faster, it’s hands-free, it lets you multi-task, and (especially among millennials) it’s considered cool. Voice chat is also becoming increasingly reliable as technology improves. 

In fact, two years ago word error rate was over 20%, but current speech recognition word error rate is as low as 8%—a huge leap in a short amount of time.

It’s clear that context and conversational search are only to become more important as voice search continues to evolve. 

So where does that leave SEO?'

7 SEO Mistakes Even SEO Professionals Make

7 SEO Mistakes Even SEO Professionals Make | The Perfect Storm Team | Scoop.it
'There are a few different sides to SEO; there’s a qualitative side to SEO—the quality of your content and the strength of your link profile factor in to how your domain ranks in search engines, but this is a somewhat subjective process. 

 On the other hand, there’s a quantitative side to SEO—a series of features, setups, and structures your site must exhibit to maximize your chances of getting ranked. There isn’t much room for subjective debate here, and one deviation from the guidelines can cost you, even if only slightly'.

7 SEO Mistakes:

1. Sub-optimal title tags and descriptions
2. Duplicate content
3. ‘Over-optimizing’ keyword usage
4. Focusing on quantity over quality content.
5. Allowing your sitemap to become obsolete
6. Neglecting Google’s diagnostic tools
7. Failing to scale the strategy

donhornsby's curator insight, June 8, 10:53 AM
Preventing and/or fixing these mistakes isn’t going to magically increase your rankings, and these aren’t the only mistakes you have to watch out for. SEO is an enormous, multifaceted strategy, but the more proactive and the more aware you are, the better chance you’ll have at building solid organic search visibility for the long term. As a general rule, you should always be operating under the assumption that you’re doing something wrong—double check your processes and audit your strategies regularly, as no matter how experienced or knowledgeable you are, there’s always room for improvement.

The definitive SEO audit: Content and on-site (Part 2 of 3)

The definitive SEO audit: Content and on-site (Part 2 of 3) | The Perfect Storm Team | Scoop.it
'Every situation is unique. This outline of the elements of a content and onsite SEO audit discusses the common first points I look at with unpenalized sites hoping to increase their traffic. If you have a penalty or other serious issues, this list is not exhaustive and will not cover all the areas you will need to research or methods to employ. 

Last month, I started my three-part series on conducting an SEO audit on your website. The purpose of auditing your site regularly is to ensure that you’re not only protecting yourself against penalties or technical oversights, but that you’re taking full advantage of the content you’re providing (from an organic SEO standpoint in this context) and that you’re “forcing” yourself to keep updated on shifts in users and terms as well as changes in the overall algorithms'.

How to Recover Lost Data From SSD

How to Recover Lost Data From SSD | The Perfect Storm Team | Scoop.it

A lot of people are looking for methods for SSD data recovery, but most of them failed finding one. Now, we’ll work this out. 


SSD is the acronym of Solid State Disk, also known as Solid State Drive. Despite that the first solid state disk drive was developed by Storage Tek in 1970, it was not until the year of 1989 that we finally witness the birth of the first solid state disk in the world. 


 After about 20 years of development, the manufacturing technology has become gradually mature and the SSD has been applied to all walks of life. Though SSD has a high cost, it is gradually spread to the DIY market. More and more computer users choose to replace their old hard drive, which is relatively small in capacity, with a new SSD, whose capacity is relatively large.


SSD (Solid State Drive) is a kind of hard drive which is made by solid state electronic memory chip array. And it consists of control unit and storage unit (FLASH chip and DRAM chip). SSD is exactly the same with common hard drive in the specification and definition of interface, function, usage and product shape and size. The most obvious difference between SSD and the old fashioned hard drive lies in hard drive technology.

How to Recover Data from Not Formatted Hard Drive

How to Recover Data from Not Formatted Hard Drive | The Perfect Storm Team | Scoop.it
If your external hard drive keeps asking you to format it after you have tried all kinds of solutions, you can download free MiniTool Power Data Recovery which is an excellent program that brings file recovery to Windows to have a try. Follow these steps to carry out data recovery process from not formatted external hard drive:  

Step 1. Launch MiniTool Power Data Recovery, and then select "Damaged Partition Recovery". You can see this module is specially designed for recovering data from damaged, RAW, or formatted partition when moving mouse over it. So it is most suitable for not formatted hard drive data recovery. 

Step 2. Then select the external hard drive to have a full scan (We take a 16 GB Kinston flash drive for example here). The scanning time depends on the capacity of your data in it. 

Step 3. When the scanning is finished, Power Data Recovery will show you the files it has found in the hard drive in tree structure. Tick the files and click "Preview" to check whether the files are the right ones. Note: you can press "Filter" button to choose specific file types to be shown in the middle pane. 

Step 4. In this step you are expected to click "Save" and then choose a safe location (usually it is another hard drive) to store all data you have selected. After that, wait for the success.  https://www.powerdatarecovery.com/hard-drive-recovery/external-hard-drive-needs-formatting.html
