Blog Comments Policy Announcement
Notice: SEO Saturday will be held this week since it was interrupted last week by the need for a blog announcement. Stop by!

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.

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:

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. Read more...

- Twitter ID Link Box - makes it ultra easy for this blogs readers to Follow You on Twitter.
