This video was brought to my attention from a post on Rebeezie’s blog. The video is a presentation by Stephan Spencer. In the video he discusses the top mistakes that bloggers make regarding SEO and helpful tips to improve. I definitely found value out of it, so thought I’d share it with my readers….Enjoy!
As most of you know, based on my last few posts I have been crusading (Doing SEO techniques) to get my name back to it’s rightful spot on the top of the Google Search engine for “David Brim”. I switched my blog platform from blogger to wordpress and ran into a bunch of problems with the SERPS. I’m glad to say that today while on my lunch break I decided to google my name David Brim and I have officially reclaimed my thrown as the #1 David Brim in the land according to Google. An added cherry on top is that now I also rank number one for “Dave Brim” as well.
So a few days ago I posted about how Google stopped indexing my blog, Filled to the Brim about a week after I switched from Blogger to WordPress. For a long time when I typed “David Brim” into the search engines I owned nearly the whole page, now a David Brim from illonois has the top spot in Google and Ask and my venture GroupTable has number two.
So I have been doing a lot of research and actions in the hopes to regain my rightful spot in the search engines.
I was kind of spoiled in a sense with blogger because it’s automatically optimized for Google, because they own it. After switching to wordpress there were many adjustments I needed to do. I also had the problem of having all of my blogger post’s indexed and having a different url structure once I transitioned to WP. When I clicked the blogger url in google I would get a 404 error.
