So my best intentions were to work on creating proper SEOs for my Etsy accounts, didn't happen.  Unfortunately work was so busy at my day job there were several days of extra hours and by the time I got home I was pooped. 

So I guess today's lesson is about learning your limitations and listing to your body.  I am a firm believer in pushing ones limits and seeing how far you can go but the payoff needs to mirror the effort.  I decided to just not worry about Etsy much this week because, at best, I may make an extra $50 for all the effort I needed to put into.   It was better to put my energy into my day job, that pays the bills, than to over extend myself and do a terrible job at everything.

It has taken me a long time to learn not to beat myself up for not meeting all my goals.  But for those of you who have my type A personality; we are not true superheros and it is OK.  It is OK to go with the flow and let things fall where they do and then gather up and move forward.

It looks like a much less hectic week for me coming up so hopefully I will have some great information and maybe some cool stats to share.  Until then enjoy the link up :)

Using SEOs in Blogger and Etsy; Networking Saturday 51

I've been working on my SEO project for a few weeks, I am purposely dedicating time to learning and using seos in my sites. 

While I had seos in my blog, I realize that I didn't have effective ones.  I like to tell stories, so my focus was on telling you about my life, my shop and just basically about me but I was not thinking about my key words, let alone looking them up to see where they stand in frequency of searches. 

So during this last week I have been forcing myself to use the tips and information I have read on creating effective seos.  The keyword planner in Google Adwords has been absolutely necessary in finding my keywords.  

To use it you add the word or words that best describes your post or item, next give them the url to your site.  Then you pick categories that it would fit into; for items you are selling it is easier but for blog posts you might want to start out more general.  Click "Get Ideas" it will generate a list of words that have been used in searches.  Choose the ones that best fit your item or topic that has the highest number of searches.  

If you find that the word/s you chose have very few searches, think of a different one, make sure it still describes your post/item, and then get ideas from that search.  It will get easier the more you use it.  I don't want to  make this post long so if you have questions add them to the comment section and we can address specifics.  Or please add any experience you have had on this subject.

Even though at first it seemed a daunting task, it really isn't so bad and I think it has been paying off.  Unfortunately I have been fighting with Google Domain which drastically affected my stats so I don't have clean data to rely on.  But it still looks like using appropriate seos has helped my stats aside from the huge dip when I tried to add my own domain (argh!)

My next project is to work on Etsy which is a bit more challenging since I need to reconstruct most of my listings.  Next week I will share some great information on seos for Etsy that was posted on a FB group I belong to.  It was a very helpful post and hopefully I will have some happy stats to share with you as a result.

Thank you and have a blessed day!

Why is Blogger making something simple so difficult?

I was so excited to see that Google had a way to purchase a domain name and just with one click you could link it up to your existing blog, until....
the error!

When clicking on my old blogspot link my readers would get an error message that said they were being redirected to a page that could possibly have spam do they want to continue yes/no?  Really Google it is your domain, it is your blog hosting app and yet you're implying that it may a viral site?
Thanks

Not to mention that my GFC is no longer functioning.

So since everything I have tried so far has been an epic fail I have reverted back to my original .blogspot URL which resolved the issue with redirection BUT my GFC app is still not working.

I want to use the domain I paid for so I tried to reconnect it but can't and just get a "conflict" error message.

Guess how I will be spending my weekend?

Anyone knows how to fix this I would love it if you would share in the comments

Pray for me :'(

Today I am basically just going to piggyback onto last week's post about SEOs.  I receive tons of spammy-like emails  (I say "like" because I have signed up for them but they come in droves) about online business, technology, SEOs, eCommerce, etc. so when I get really busy they tend to end up in the trash bin with having only  glanced at them.  

But lately I have been working hard at increasing my knowledge of SEOs so they are getting more than just a glance.  I have found that often with tough subjects you just have to keep reading, looking etc. and one day the light bulb turns on.  This worked for Statistics and Stoicheometry so I am telling myself it will work for SEOs.

WebCEO offers to analyze your site to see where you rank, how your effective your SEOs are, help you build the strength and health of your site and much more.  The best part? it is free!  The free version does offer you a lot of information so it is worth the time invested.  

At this point I am impressed at all the information I have derived from the site and would recommend trying it if you are struggling with understanding SEOs as I have been.    

Thank you and have a blessed day!
