Posting Tip - Quality vs Quantity

If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. That phrase applies to blogging too! If you don't have anything of value to add to your blog then don't post crap! Now, if you have a schedule for your blog then you are going to want to work ahead and post items in advance (blogger and wordpress both have features which allow you to automatically post from a queue).

Quality is the biggest part of both attracting an audience and making google like your site. By 'like' I mean index it for the keywords you include in your title and in most paragraphs of your article. For instance, my keywords are quality, quantity, and posting tip. Quanitity does not mean google will like you and if you use your keywords too much in any one paragraph (this one is pushing it) then you will get flagged as spamming and it will hurt your google seo.

So when I say post quality and not quantity that refers to good google seo as well! Apply this posting tip to your own blog and if you have free reign on when you post (like this blog) don't post crap when you have nothing of quality to say.

Become a Ghost Writer

A great way to make money is to write for other people trying to get their sites picked up by google. If you take some time to pick their brains while you ghost write for them maybe you will learn a thing or two about google seo as well as internet marketing. If nothing more look at the sites they are asking you to write for and how they tell you to write your articles.

There's a lot of information in the instructions for ghost writers and it's definately worth the time to think about why writers write the way they do online.

For instance, you should break up your keywords into a main key phrase of 2-5 words and several supporting phrases of 1-3 words. The main phrase should be present once in every paragraph atleast but no more than three times. The secondary key words should appear about 2-3 times total in any one paragraph.

The reasoning behind this is to keep your google SEO high but avoid getting labeled as a spammer by google robots.

Go find some ghost writing oppurtunities and see what you can learn from the experience. Have to walk before you run!
