Any followers of Country Music might be hoping for a post on Shania Twain, singer of song of this name…apologies to her fans but this is not what this is about.
I don’t normally write midweek blogs but I got involved in conversation today with someone on the vexed subject of how I use SEO. Those not familiar with the term may be thinking along the lines of some corporate post holder…like CEO, COO, CFO etc. No, it means Search Engine Optimisation i.e. how easily, (or not at all!) someone will find your blog post site.
The conclusion of the conversation was just that said person was bemused that I was not attempting to do it and that nobody will find my site!
As aficionados of SEO will know it is fair to say that without liberally sprinkling topical keywords I will remain an unknown to 99.99% of the population.
Actually that’s probably a good thing!
Well, as most of my subject matter never requires use of words such as sex, Brexit or thankfully Covid, these have little chance for a mention even once.
In fact if the advice I have been given is to be believed I should be slipping in these very words in my title and repeatedly in the message body like some kind of protest chant .
Realistically as the word ‘sex’ attracts a certain type of reader, they will then be disappointed with the lack of it in the content; Brexit will be mainly off-putting no matter what side of the ‘divide’ you are on, and if you don’t live in UK or Europe…you probably really don’t care. Why would you? and mention of Covid something that we likely do not want to read even more about, so this then means that these key words will be as relevant to my blog as needing a fridge in Greenland!
I was also told I should consider some long tailed ones…..keywords that is! I am getting out my tape measure now……. and to make sure I updated my slugs! Slugs, yeah well something along similar lines too, but don’t ask me to explain what they are…other than not something you find under a flowerpot!
Happy days, and glad to be in obscurity 😁😁 And apologies again to all feeling very short changed by the title.
