Last September of 2007 I created a new website, Search Idaho Homes Well this last weekend I finally started going back to my old posts and started adding a new signature paragraph to all my old posts like the one below with my new web address.
To my surprise many of my older blogs have now been featured on Localism and I didn't even know it! I started adding the signature paragraph to these older blogs and then realized many of them needed work. With 400 posts written I am still not done but getting there! When looking at my older blogs this is what I found:
- I found some misspellings
- Many of the photos I used didn't show so I had to download new photos.
- I re-worded some of my blogs
- I added new anchor text for SEO purposes
- I added new tags that were SEO friendly
Today I was looking for a blog I knew an AR member had written. I had to go 12 pages deep into his blogs to find the blog I was looking for. In my search I found several blogs that had photos that didn't display. All that displayed was a red X in the upper left hand corner.
Go to "My Blog" and click "Points Summary" and scan down and look at all your blogs. If you see any that are now featured in Localism take a look at them and make sure they say and display what you want them to. Just to the right of every blog you wrote it will tell you if it is featured on Active Rain or Localism.
Even if the blogs are not featured in Localism we still need to clean them up. Every now and then one of my old blogs will be found through Google and someone comments on it. Make sure those older blogs look their best because they are a reflection of you!
