    Hi guys and gals, it has been a few days since my introduction. I wanted to make sure I got the thank you rule right for one. So I it seems am allowed to click the thank you button but not say thank you to many times.

    Hope I have got that right....

    Great and interesting stuff to read on here although I'm still a little lost as to all the navigation and major info (it's the overload thing).
    Anyway lots of great Ideas as usual, as I have found on my brief visits over a couple of years or so now. Some new, some not so new and some old but stand the test of time.
    Could anyone advise me on a fishing blog website I have should I delete it. What section do I need to look in please to ask someone if it would be viable to continue it..
    it is UK based. I won't put url unless someone would like to have a quick look and advise.
    Many thanks!

    Write content for users.

    Do not spam.

    Do not build "white hat backlinks."

    Do not hire any SEO who calls himself a "white hat SEO."

    Read Google's webmaster guidelines.

    Market your site with people. If you have good content, people will link to you.

    You have a fishing blog. Network with people in the industry. Learn the questions people are asking and what they want to know. Turn it into content on your site.

    There is no "x -> y -> z" methodology. There is only catering a site to users and then understanding how bots work.


    Test your business ideas and then know when to fail and pull the plug. The BS, vapid terms of encouragement on here are nothing more than empty prose of clueless people. Failing is an art form and good business sense is knowing when to cut your losses. Just because you work hard does not mean you'll succeed. Continuing a failed project is retarded. And understanding when you've been beat will save you a lot of time, money and heartache.

    Be smart.

    I agree with achron10 that you should be chatting people in the industry up on what's topical. Every blog I follow (mostly product reviews) are talking about the newest in the industry and answering questions from readers. I'm new at this too, but it seems that the bloggers I love have strong opinions, and or tips and tricks.
