Blogging is endless improvement

Chesil beach!

Endless! 🙂 Gotta plod on!

Chesil beach seemingly endless… but keep plodding along and you will get somewhere, bit like blogging eh?

I noticed on someone’s blog how they had gone and checked over the links on his blog and knowing I had some redirects still not yet sorted, I decided to sort the error page out in a way would help the blog, not sure if it will or not yet…

Yet, maybe me doing that with the link above being here on the post helps the SEngine’s spider the links… 😛

Still, worth doing even it did take the best part of two damn hours, if you share any, it makes it even more worth my time! 😉

More links than I wanted to see though!

It’s good to deal with it all and get the blog up to date and working better, yet I noticed something else too, that is since the move from blogger, Iv’e noticed the url’s used are good keyword ones which, looking at the post now, they could be altered to improve it…

Something some bloggers say is a no no?!


Bollox to what they say, my blog here 🙂

The endless path to improvement

Let’s be honest, daily we are trying to grow our blog readership, market it more, better, trying to get that extra traffic, building links, being part of the community, more possible income, working more and more, smarter, harder, always striving to improve… On and on!

I get sick of it at times, just to be clear it ain’t all a bed of roses but if blogging really interest you, be sure to own it!

Endless and often frustrating, yet, needs must all in the name of…


It is one constant in whatever we do, blogging, life, job, relationships, whatever, we always strive to improve it and part of that to me means also the act of looking back at what’s been before.

If you got a blog and a few post up, it would be worth looking into, after all, if you are keen to keep moving forward, improving what you do as you go along, ignoring what’s already on your blog you will still have all the back post’s that could be better…which could make a bigger difference in 6 months time… (helps next PR update) 😉

Then start deep linking these older post, even if that have not been improved you should be deep linking to content of yours, deep linking just means to link to older relevant post of the same site/blog, it leads new readers to new content too, well, new to them, and make them anchored links. 😉

That after all is the essence of the blogosphere.

Like so… 🙂

Gotta be in it for the long term.  I am, and got lots to do!

    Deep linking is important, really important. Too few people do this.

    It’s easier if you engineer your blog posts in advance, before publishing, with hooks allowing future backlinks. Which requires having a plan for your blog.

      Hey Dave….

      I can’t believe how few people deep link to their own stuff, it’s essential I say, we can’t rely on readers wanting to go look at old post, we gotta show em. 😉

      That tip you said there with future post, planning… hhm, need to do that myself thanks! 😀

    I believe deep linking is important when you are doing in depth articles because the reader needs to have a base to understand why your article is written the way it is today.

    As writers, we have personal bias already in our head of what we assume the reader knows. This affects how we think people would interpret what we write.
