Playing in the Google Sandbox

When I did usual stats check this morning, I was surprised to see that I had only received 15 page views on my new site yesterday and only 1 page view today. I know it’s Easter weekend and all, but 15 page views? Something was amiss. I looked at my page views to see they [...]

Thank You Panda

King Fu Panda

I’m a firm believer that everything happens for a reason and in the long run it works out for the better. Sometimes you have to reach real deep inside to find the lesson or the bright side, but it’s always there. It has only been a little over a month since the Panda came out [...]

Decision Makers: Knee, Brain or Gut

The recent changes in the Google algorithm has made me realize how much I’ve matured over the years as an individual and a writer. My decision making process and response to unexpected situations has evolved. The Knee When I was much younger (and a newbie writer), and the unexpected happened, I would react in a [...]

Learning from the Suite 101 Google Smack Down

Let me start this post by admitting I’m not an Internet expert. I’m just a woman who liked creating websites, playing around with images and writing.

You see, back in mid September, 2010 I registered 5 new domain names.  It took me from September, 2010 to December, 2010 to finally set up the WordPress template and add content to the blogs.  I didn’t add much content to [...]

Things One of My Blogs Taught Me

I decided to truly analyze one of my blogs that started earning money from the first month of being on the web. That surprised me because it doesn’t get a lot of traffic. Since it consistently earns money each month, I decided to see what I had done differently on that blog that I had [...]

Do You Have a Sitemap?

If you have a website or a blog and you have not added your site map to Google Webmaster tools, you should take the time to do so. Back in the Stone Age when I first got online I barely knew what a sitemap was. I spent some time reading in various forums trying to [...]

Google Indexing Speed

Some time ago, I wrote a post about switching one of my Google-step-child-sites from a hand coded site to a Joomla site. I made the switch because I originally hand coded the site several years ago and things have changed since then (and I’ve learned a lot since then). Not to belabor the point (for [...]

A Neat Little FireFox SEO Extension

I’d like to take credit and say that I discovered a neat little FireFox Extension, but in all honesty, I didn’t discover it.  I found out about this tool because I subscribe to the “WordPress How to Spotter” newsletter.  Alex is a WordPress Plugin Guru, and he happened to write about this Firefox Extension. The [...]
