SEO Content Packing

For those who think key words are king, packing a blog article or website full of content for "SEO" overall...

I am looking at the blog stats and 95% of those who land on the blog are crappers, I mean spammers. cool None of them are worth my time, in fact, they actually waste my time by sending spam emails and trying to comment on the blog. 

So for all those marketers out there who think we can be all things to all people, pull the other leg! The blog posts from long ago are now the hot ones on my hit list. So all this to say, most of the statz programs are not worth what you pay for them!  Conversion rate is what counts. 

2014 is a good year to get our act in gear, to keep an eye on where our guests actually come from, are the big B&B directories becoming obsolete? Extinct the way guide books and printed matter has become (for the most part)? Can we attract more guests via our own marketing on social media?

Please share your feedback, we're all in this together! Smiling

I tried comment on my blogs but all I got were spammers. I do not allow comments any longer.

You can allow comments that are moderated. They don't get published until you allow them. If you blog enough that you're on there often, it works. If you blog randomly then you might end up with too many sitting waiting for you.

Lots of ways to set it up, I guess. Mine is set where the first comment by a new person requires me to OK it, but after that the person is considered trusted, and their comments appear with no approval needed.

Of course I can "untrust" them later if need be. I'm considering banning my brother, whose comments on my blog posts are often little inside jokes to me but not really things I'd like the general public to see!

I only get comments from people who are posting with short little comments, then add a link to their blog or site. I don't let them through.

I've got probably 10 comments in 7 years. None from the same person! Only had to block the directory guys who were trying to get in my good graces before hitting me with a sales pitch.

One thing that I do is allow comments on recent posts (I think two weeks) to be posted immediately but comments on older posts have to be approved.  Plus I get an email notification of a comment.  That seems to work - when spammers come around, they often go after the older posts hoping you won't be looking at those.

I DO moderate but that takes time. Yes, I have not gotten to the JB level of blogging. I go in spurts which I know is not good.

Russia, Ukraine, India other than the US those are where my 'hits' come from on the blog. Not so much on the website. Mostly spammy websites hoping I'll bite.

I thought it was really funny. Our chamber is having a class on how to do effective ad!!! What the??? Who reads ads these days and who does print ads?  Guess they think locals advertising to locals..DUH! To say the least I am done with our chamber.

Some years ago, our chamber was not "getting it", so a smaller group formed to cooperate on a group site to get local businesses on the web.  A rep from the chamber showed up at a meeting to ask why the second group.  She was told some of the reasons, and lo, the chamber actually responded and moved toward setting up a website for all chamber members. Our splinter group membership faltered then died.   Later the chamber's site was changed, supposedly to something less clunky, I wrote a comment in response to the change, but received one of those "Dear Mrs......thank you for your comments" kind of brush off.   One of the splinter group members kept up with her own site, for all county members who wished to continue paying her a modest fee.  Her SEO is great.  I continue to be on both sites, but more conversions from the splinter group member's site.  (The chamber site looks great now, but the SEO continues to lag)

Ah well, our chamber continues to lurch into the latter days of the 20th  century. smiley
