Feedback on My Blog.

  1. So. I started a blog 3 days ago. The name really doesn't mean anything, the posts are very few, and as of yet I have no comments, pictures, or media. But if you'd like, check out my many, many, many posts (there's 2 of them.) and give me some feedback. Thanks in advance for the help.

    The blog I need help with is teddybearsoldier.wordpress.com.

  2. i enjoy your ranting, keep it up, maybe go a little more of a visually interesting theme. here is mine: aretheyserious.wordpress.com

  3. Hey - keep going with your writing. It's very hard to write something that makes someone even smile, let alone laugh - I think you have something there. I don't like the swearing - but that's just me; I'm a prude. Keep going. Don't give up.

  4. Yeah, I was thinking about toning it down. Thanks for the advice. And tylergreer, I'm trying to cool templates. By the way, your blog is awesome.

    Are you aware of how search engines operate? Without using keywords in your post titles, sub-titles and in the natural flow of the text, and without assigning categories and tags (no more than a combined total of 12 categories and tags on any single post), what information will search engines have that will appear in search results and send readers to your posts?

    I think you will benefit from reading this post and applying the techniques contained in it.

  6. Thanks alot for tips, and for the great link. I working on writing several posts a day, but I'm have trouble with keywords in my headline. I talk about strange things in my family and town, so I'm having trouble what keywords would bring people to my blog. Also, how can I spread the word about my blog? I saw something somewhere about join forums and putting it in the signature, but I want to make sure I'm not coming off as a spammer.

  7. (1) I'm having trouble with keywords in my headline.

    keyword selection for inclusion in titles, subtitles, in the natural flow of the text, in images as alternate text & description, in categories and tags

    If you are creating a blog for others to read then you have to put yourself in the position of a potential reader who does not know you, and imagine what words they would type into a search engine that would include your posts in the search results. Yes, this can be a difficult determination but it's not rocket science. Every post has to be about at least one topic, right? ;)

    Examples: boyfriend(s), dance, fashion, feelings, food, friends, fun, girlfriend(s), gossip, music, parties, school, work

    (2) Also, how can I spread the word about my blog?

    Here is a post on that subject http://onecoolsite.wordpress.com/2009/11/07/blog-promotion-basics/ This is not the only post on my blog on the subject but I believe it's the best one for you.

    (3) I saw something somewhere about join forums and putting it in the signature, but I want to make sure I'm not coming off as a spammer.

    The standard spiel made to all new bloggers is to join blogging forums and post a signature as a means of getting traffic. Your username is linked to your blog here at wordpress.com so you username is, in essence, your signature here.

    In time it will make sense for you to locate and selectively join some social networks, online groups, and forums. That comes after you have created an archive of quality content (a minimum of 20 - 30 high quality posts). Why wait? If you get all hyped up too early on then visitors come and go away "hungry" and don't return.
