Thread: is blogging dead?

  1. #21
    I don't see that happening to my blogs.
    Long tail keywords still rank up there.

    There's so much going on with Google updates that it's hard to say with any certainly what may be the reason for a drop in traffic.

    Interesting on what you say about your long tail traffic which may have something to do with the Google's 'Freshness' update. How often do you update your blogs?

    One blog is updated once to twice per day.
    The other blog is updated several times a day.

    I am thinking, for any webmaster to obsess about keywords and long tail keywords and short tail women and so forth is just ridiculous.

    Unlike others, I just post on my blog and be done with it.

    I do not obsess or worry about seo, keywords, is my content good, is my content too short or too long, are my graphics just right, and will the moon shine tonight.

    Sorry, but this is NOT what I have seen in practice. My longtails rank better than the short ones, but that is mainly due to one keyword in them that seems to tell Google to rank them.

    As you said, for the long term it's better to focus on content and improvements to the website.

    Algorithms come and go. Where are SEO tactics such as link exchanges and article marketing today?

    It's tough to say what is going on with Google at any moment. The 'May Day' update made it harder to rank on long tails. But on the other hand, Penguin took out a lot of the competition and sites that were not heavily optimized are now ranking.

    As far as 'long tail' keywords I think dawg hit the nail on the head just post whatever. One of the changes should catch you. I think trying to out guess google is just a waste of time.

    He does his job which means he draws attention, so people listen to him rather than examining what really works.

    I think the problem is most people forget he actually works for Google and isn't an SEO spokesperson.

    Blogging is still pretty much active and being commonly used by thousands of webmasters. Even some of the top-earning portals online are indeed blogs that are moderated by some freelancers who do know what to write about and how to promote their published content pages.

    the real problem that has made you think blogging has become obsolete is the sudden growth in the number of blogs, launched merely for the sake of advertising products by some people, posting copied materials on their pages and actually damaging the whole blogging theory.

    Blogging is a great way of reaching out to people and presenting information. It will never go away as content will always rule. As long as the importance of content is prominent, blogging, article submissions and any other content related SEO strategy will never be stopped.

    As long as there are people who wants to learn and improve their knowledge there are always blog sites that will provide you what you need and will benefit you in the end.
