Search Engine Optimization – Day 18 of the April Platform Challenge

Today’s April Platform Challenge is chock-full of technical goodies for the serious blogger. Robert has full details here. I’d like to add a prerequisite; determine if you’re a serious blogger.

For those keeping track, this is a vanity blog; hence the picture of me on the right. I get to go on about how great I am. So, the question becomes do I want to take the time to optimize the site for search engines? If I’m looking at the whole thing as a learning experience (and I am), then the answer is, “Yes!”

It’s not as easy as it sounds, or I’m over-complicating it, but the optimization should allow more visibility in the wild, provided I keep up on the maintenance.

  1. I love the term ‘vanity blog’. I have one of those myself 🙂 And, really, is there any other kind?

    Thanks! And there’s probably not another type, but calling it a “blog blog” does sound a little silly; not that that’s stopped me before.
