Blog Comment Link Juice

1st order of business for my self-hosted WordPress.org blog was to add  plenty of Comment Link Juice for bloggers and visitors:

  •  Do-Follow Links monitored for spam until we know your comments are “on topic”.
  • KeyWord Luv gives you the option to add keyword anchor text to the link in the name field.(Example: Linda Yarbrough@Media Marketing Strategy) This will link to the URL entered.
  • Comment Luv auto links to your last Blog Post by Title.(Example: Linda Yarbrough @ Media Marketing Strategy recently posted..  Google SEO – Tight IS Right)
  • Twitter ID Link Box - makes it ultra easy for this blogs readers to Follow You on Twitter.

If you have ANY questions about how to use these functions, just ask!  I’ll be happy to walk you through setting it up.  Long-time Internet Marketers and Bloggers will know how important these value-added features are.

SEO View of Latest Google Update

All the talk in the past few days about the powerful “correction” Google has just made has brought me out of my temporary hibernation.

The latest change in the Google algorithm (Panda) is being called the Farmer update and it’s major.  Major as in it has a lot of folks in a tizzy.  It is said to have had major affects on 12% of search results and has plummeted many websites traffic visitor numbers in half.


Self-Hosted Crossover on WordPress Blog

Need The Easiest Way To Self-Host WordPress Blog?

I changed my Twitter Profile this morning to: Texas gal into Media Marketing Strategy & Coaching, Web Design SEO, Real Estate, Golf, Pottery & Heart Disease. Internet Marketer and wannabe Blogger.

Let’s talk about the wannabe Blogger description. When Yarby’s Corner began, I shared that I had started a Blog years ago and then took a 5 year hiatus. This time I am determined to stick with it and find my blogging voice. So far, I stand by that. But because I was testing the waters initially, I used a wordpress.com address instead of my primary business website, The Media Mix. After several months of blogging and much reading, it appears there are a “few” plug-ins I need that are not available in this platform.

Best Method to Switch to Self Hosted WordPress Blog?

Confused ... Which way to go?

Don’t get me wrong, I love WordPress.com. But as a Business Blog I need to make a change. I help clients and readers with all forms of media : from traditional off-line media to new media and all aspects of on-line marketing. So my goal is to build a community that is interactive, engaging and fluid. I don’t want to talk “at” you but “with” you. Many of the folks reading my blog care A LOT about incoming-links, solid anchor text and showing their latest Blog Post when they Comment. I too appreciate those features on other Internet Marketing and Social Media Blogs.

It seems some of the Plug-Ins necessary to achieve my goal include:

I’ve just joined a Facebook Group called “You Can Do” Social Media Marketing.  This group is new but already extremely active!  Started by Kim Garst of Social Media Branding.com, it looks like it will give new meaning to the concept of “community”.

Top 5 Tips for Email Marketers

How to avoid the dreaded “Unsubscribe” Request

It’s clean out email trash day around here again … and I’ve got to shout out (or at) email marketers!

1. The quickest way to a Trash Bin is to oversend emails. Seriously, stop email overkill. I have found myself on the opt-in list of many Internet Marketers who are sending up to 8 emails a day … every day!

Oh my. Do they really think we can’t go a few hours without hearing their latest offer or words of wisdom? Or we’ll forget them if not hounded by email? If your writing isn’t more memorable than that – give it up!
