I'm doing something wrong. Is there anyone here who would be willing to look at my blog and email me with tips or suggestions. I'm not getting traffic on my blog or organic traffic on my hubs for that matter either.
I'm using the keyword search tool. I've read about every article that the more prolific hubbers here have written about backlinks, SEO and keywords.
If it comes down to the fact that I'm a poor writer, I can accept that and move on. After 4 month here, truth be told I'm starting to waver on weather I should continue writing or not. Not looking for a pity party, just plain honest critique.
My blog is on my profile page if anyone cares to take a quick look at it. I have 4 blogs, but am concentrating on this one right now.
I just linked all the employment sites. 100's - phewy. Off to look for more.
You need 100's of links leading to you
you could start with a couple links in your related hubs, try some dofollow booklinking, and maybe get involved in a forum that allows a url signature
when we place a link into a comment thread on NYT or something similiar this may help, Jane. find places that write about similar content.
Oh, okay - I actually have linked my hubs in there several times.
Almost forgot....this is a great trick, keep it down, ok?
Submit your blog to all the top bloglist sites- youll get first page for your keyword quite quickly!
here are some examples:
few Blog Topsites such as:
take a look here to see it in action
makemoneyfrommyart.com ( on the right hand side, you will see a little collection of icons - everyone of those sites is an example of a place that is giving backlinks)
Its a super quick way to rank on first page - you still ahve to do good keyword research and develop the blog naturally, but it gives a hell of a boost
Thanks everyone for your input.
I had several emails suggesting I change the blogger format to a three column. Went and found one I liked, downloaded it, unzipped it and tried to upload it to my blog. I get error after error message.
I love the idea of a different layout...I just don't get how to edit the codes. I get this message "The new widget id "Recent-Posts-Widget1" is invalid for type: Feed" and tried to delete that part of the code, then I get another message: "Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly.
XML error message: The element type "b:widget" must be terminated by the matching end-tag "".
So I'm thinking of scrapping this blog & starting from scratch, just need a new name.
Not sure what the exact question is at the moment.
Just doing 3 column for the sake of 3 column is meaningless-usually 3 column can be used to really maximize ad space and social add-ons

Thats a great list - in general I suggest magazine styles for blogs that are actually intended to be read.
If you post very specific problems in this thread, regarding your errors I can help you correct them
for example that error message told you exactly what tag you were missing, i could have wrote the end code for you
heres a decent example of a blogger blog that I found here in the forums

I've just published my new yoga hub to HP and it has gotten the duplicate error, when it's new and original from my past two weeks of yoga classes. It's not a duplicate from previous yoga hubs either. Why?
