Jonathan's Blogging Journey


I first heard of blogging in the Summer of 2008. I was really fascinated by the idea and concept. It was about the same time that I began a personal mission to discover my true purpose in life. I had spent the previous five years building a start-up executive search firm with a few close friends. Although I was enjoying the journey, I really wanted to find my "fit" in the world...

The ONE Thing in Common with All Successful Bloggers

One of my favorite novels of all time is A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Did you know that for years Charles Dickens wrote in obscurity? He spent three years writing for the Evening Chronicle for no payment. Eventually, much to the surprise of Dickens, he was approached by a young publisher who wanted to […]

Meet Edgar Review – How to Be Everywhere Without Losing Your Mind

I often tell people that social media posting feels like pouring water into a leaky bucket. There are some cool social media scheduling tools out there, but most of them have one flawed problem – your need to constant fill up the bucket. Maybe you spend once a week scheduling quotes, image quotes, engaging questions, […]

HI Scott,

Nice job on the blogs and getting started. I can tell you do have a passion for writing. Have you thought about taking one of those that you are passionate about and targeting the keywords in an effort to draw more traffic? If you have not watched the videos I would recommend that you do. Way to take action!

I hope to get to this really soon. Let's say you want to target the key word "white furniture." Besides having it in your title, in your URL (which if you use Wordpress they do both for you), you will want to work the main keyword in every 100 words or so. Just work it in naturally, don't over-abuse it. Also, you want to work in similar words as well (cause you can get ranked for those too!). best way to do that is put your main keyword in the Google Keyword Tool and use the next 3-5 words on the list. So, for "white furniture" you might also get:

white bedroom furniture
white leather furniture
antique white furniture

If all this does not make sense I will create a video soon....

Thanks, Jonathan

Thanks Jonathan, Computer skills is certainly something I am lacking. I do put Tags on the end of my posts but how else do I apply the key words you refer to?

Hi Diane,

Welcome to the group. That is awesome that you have stayed with it that long. Too many people quit too early I am afraid. Took a look at your blog. Very nicely done! I bet if you applied some of the key word targeting strategies to stamping, card making, polymer clay, altered art, collage, mixed media, scrapbooking, baking and cake decorating you would really benefit from even more traffic. Nice job!

So happy to be joining this group. I have been "blogging my Passion" for about a year and a half. Have little patience with computers but I can drag and drop with the best of them. Look forward to reading tips and ideas to make it better. You can check out my blog at www.creativedestinations.blogspot.com

ok, excellent. You might want to consider doing what is called a 301 Redirect. You can find more info here: http://www.theinternetdigest.net/archive/301-redirects-seo.html

Scroll down to 301 redirect section. You will want to consider this for several reasons:

1. Less effort (don't have to move your old posts).
2. Your search engine rankings won't be effected (you will be able to keep your link popularity....as posts age google does favor them more and looks at them to be credible.
3. You won't loose any "link juice." When people point links to your blog it is a very good thing (as long as it is a "do follow" link. You would be starting from scratch with the new one.
4. Your content won't be considered "duplicate content." Google will always allow the first "indexed" article to rank better.

I know I just gave you alot of info. Depending on your experience it may not make sense to you. One of my first blogs had about 30 posts in it when I decided to switch the domain. I had someone from scriptlance.com do it for me in less then a few hours and I paid him between $10-20. I was able to move on down the road without skipping a beat. You can also take your current theme and upload it to the old one. Looks like they are both Wordpress.

Just some thoughts...

Thanks Brian. Great explanation. I took a moment to check out your new blog. Looks like you are on the right track. I noticed you are just getting started. Your in the perfect place to target the right keywords up front and get a jump start. With my first blog, I just wrote about anything for the first 50 post. Then, for the next 50 posts I applied some strategy like keyword targeting. I can tell you that it made a difference. I tripled the amount of traffic from my last 50 posts to the first 50 posts. Would love to help you anyway I can get your blog off the ground.
