Learning Blogging Technical Stuff
Search Engine Optimization, this is how the little web crawlers ( robots, etc) discover your blogs information for distribution in search on the web. Through google, bing, yahoo. etc. Contents are scanned and the search engines pick out what is relevant to their search users. Think of keywords or phrases you would search for and be sure to include them in your tags and in your blog post.
Back It Up
Make sure you are updating your blog with all of the latest updates ( verify your plugins are compatible with the newest version). WordPress and other blog services keep things updated for us to help keep the integrity of our blogs safe.
as long as I’m on the topic of searching always remember to have a search bar available on your blog.
is the actual address on the internet of your blog, the blog post, etc. the universal resource indicator
are the areas within your blog that define the topics of your posts
are the keywords ( no more than 15) that are relevant to your blog post and are used for search
What is URL It is the Uniform Resource Locator, and is used to identify a specific online address such as http://www.old.katherinescorner.com
What is a Permalink it is the link to a blog page or blog post ( the blog itself) it is the url address
What Is html
You see it everywhere throughout the internet but what is it?
HTML is the building block each website is created with. It is a series of elements called tags and angle brackets like this
all buried with the contents of the page.
HTML tags normally come in pairs like
The first tag in a pair is the opening tag and the last is the closing tag.
Web browsers analyze the tags to interpret the content of the web page, blog, etc.
HTML is also what allows embedded objects and images to display and to be interactive ( click to go to location). Like for blog buttons.
I am not an expert on HTML codes. But, what I don’t know I can always research and find out.
Rel No Follow
If you are considering adding “fancy fonts” to your blog please add no more than two. They look very pretty, but can also slow your site speed down. You can get FREE fonts at google.com/fonts
For Worpress Users-
Just a reminder about plugins, you must verify (through the plugin details) that they have updated their plugin to your latest version
