Apparently, Google search engines rate sites higher if Google thinks the owner/s are willing to invest in a long term plan.
It makes sense, but why should I do it?
Sure, I get on average 200 to 250 readers a day. However, the purpose of the blog was to try and help my sales, which it hasn't.
So, to increase the hope of my rating rising, I have to pay for your enjoyment, to me that appears a negative move. By doing that, I need faith I will get some recompense other than a few more readers. My faith in that is less than zero, after spending fourteen months writing a book nobody wants to read, even at a give away price.
