The Content You Ignore Is Killing Your Blog

Its not really a free country...

Got a plane to catch in about two hours and I have to pack my bag, shut down the computer and then hope for an easy commute and an easy flight back to Texas which is why this post is going to be short and sweet.

That headline is not link bait, it is a legitimate comment about how many bloggers inadvertently hurt their blogs.

They fail to take time to set up and or review the individual pages they have constructed for their blogs.

Examples

Let’s use  my blog as our example.

If you look at the top of the blog you will see links to About Me, Contact Me, Hire Me and Archives.

When your focus is upon producing daily content it is easy to forget about them. You set them up and then lose sight of them because they aren’t part of your daily focus.

I make a point to review each of these pages on a consistent basis to make sure the information they contain is correct and up-to-date and to ensure they all work and that there are not any broken links.

That is because they are among the most highly trafficked pages within the blog so it is important to make sure things operate as they should.

Most Popular Posts

And now it is time for me to shift my focus to the fun and games associated with airline travel.  I am not sure if I’ll have another chance to update today or if that will be pushed off a bit.

In the interim you can check out the posts below that my stat checker says are among the most popular here.

Hi Josh

Good things to remember to check on as they are like the meat and potatoes of our blogs.  I really like the "broken link checker" plugin it definitely helped in discovering that I had to change somethings fast.
