    I got my blog online 2 weeks ago yesterday. I thought everything was ok but I have these spam messages in my spam folder that tell me that my on page SEO is missing factors. I am not sure if I am doing something wrong or not..
    can you please look at my blog and suggest any changes I might need to do?

    Thanks,
    Sonya

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

    Reputable SEO companies do not spam blogs. That’s spam. Any comment you received blathering on about SEO is spam. Mark it as spam – don’t delete it. That way Akismet will learn to sequester it.

    The vast and overwhelming majority of all so-called information on the internet is spam. Over 80% of all comments submitted to .wordpress.com blogs every day are spam. If you get spam that slips by Akismet then mark it as spam ( do not delete it) and over time Akismet will learn it’s spam.

    It takes only seconds to click “empty spam” and you don’t even have to click “empty spam” if you don’t want to. Akismet will maintain comments it has caught for 15 days from the time they were received, and then it will delete the comment automatically.

    Please take the time to read “5 things every blogger should know about spam” on this page Akismet: How it works

    I have another question. If you look on my blog I had two post with pictures back to back the two post seem to run together. What is a good way to seperate post with a divider of some sort? If so how do I do that?
    Also I added the pinterest buttons below each post but is there a way to add it to each picture?

    Thanks.

    We can use any widget that has pure HTML but we cannot use any widgets that contain restricted codes like iframes or JavaScript widgets. In the case of Pinterest, you cannot use the Pin-it Javascript code on a WordPress.com blog. http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/

    But you can put the code for the Pinterest follow button in a text widget.
    1. Go to this site, choose which one of the red Follow Me images you want, and copy the code for it. http://pinterest.com/about/goodies/

    2. Then, go to your widgets > Appearance > Widgets and select a text widget.http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/text-widget/

    3. Paste the Pinterest follow button code into the text widget, “save” the widget, “close” the widget and place it where you want it to display in your sidebar.

    That is the way I have the pinterest already but it only allows 1 pin and it does show 1 picture now if they click the picture they get to the blog…I guess there is not another way.

    I am not talking about alignment I like my images one below another but if I have two post back to back with very little text that are mainly images is there a way to add more space between the two post as a seperation? I know some blogs have dividers between post.

    re: Pinterest
    I hear you but do understand that many WordPress.com bloggers actually want Pinterest pinners to pee-off. They do not want their original images and artworks to be pinned. They want a block Pinterest feature.

    re: the posts question
    Posts that lack at least 150 words of content do not fare well when it comes to gaining search engine attention and ranking well in the SERPs (search engine page results).

    I know these post were not 150 words but my information post were longer.. Now I will start making my picture post longer to thanks for the heads up on that.. Pinterest does not really bother me the image thiefs will take images from anywhere they can get them.

    Since a post should be 150 words should I got back and edit the ones that are not?

    #1012864

    I just use the <hr /> horizontal rule. But I just put it at the end of each post. I could get all fancy and code it differently, but I just take whatever default the theme gives me.

    For a divider I mean.

    Thanks I knew there was something I was forgetting.. I will try that.
