An SEO (Search Engine Optimiser) is a person who spends time going through the work, looking for key words. They will tell you, you need a certain ration of key words to each paragraph. BS, I am no expert and couldn't tell a key word from an adverb. What I am. is a damn good writer, who writes interesting articles.
Do's :- The main thing to do is vary the content. If you read my blog it has comments on philosophy/humour/my medical condition/books - not only mine/ and all sorts.
Express your feelings, it is your blog after all, but don't force your opinions on the readers, they want to be entertained, not preached to.
Don't's :- This list is simple to follow. The first thing is do NOT turn your blog into a whinge post -- that is the main reason I was off line for two weeks earlier this month -- few people will read someone who constantly whines, or uses the blog to attack the establishment. I know of what I speak.
I have not filled my blog with my personal life issues, my family life is private, and will stay that way. I will mention things about me, which I think are interesting, but only about me.
Don't turn the blog into purely a book blog, this soon becomes dry, dull,and very tedious. Even hard and fast fans soon tire of being force fed promos for the next book.
Sure, if I was greedy I could chase more readers,but I'm quite content with what happens at the moment. I know I'll never get far, but "Forgestriker" is closing in on the BIG 50 sales mark, and I am pleased.
