Advantages and disadvantages of search engine optimization

Let’s talk about advantages and disadvantages of search engine optimization for a minute. It seems regardless of what online marketing method you talk about, you can find different opinions. That is why you can find inconsistent positions concerning search engine rankings because some look at it as time not well used. You will see a good number of people who believe it is a waste of time. The thing many often point out is you have very little control over your search rankings. Plus the efforts to gain links going to your site never ends. You can always find people who remind you that the rules of SEO never stay the same. However, you can get very highly ranked for many keyphrases, and if you do then it will be worth it. If you are going to optimize for SEO, then you must hold mistakes to a minimum amount.

Only using the very best content achievable offers you a great advantage with Google. While there is no option for search rankings that is without flaws. They openly admit that sub standard sites will not flourish anymore in their listings. They are undoubtedly placing a much stronger preference on sites that are more authority in nature. Google loves the authority site containing expert written content and comprehensive with a great deal of content. Therefore it is clear to see what they want, and it is simply top quality content and plenty of it.

Whether or not you’ve got a static HTML site or blog, part of wise on-page SEO is paying attention to your inner pages with internal links. Your home page should receive much less external links, backlinks, versus other webpages on your site. But right now we will concentrate on interior linking structure. Of course you want to backlink your inner pages for explanations which will be clear in a moment. The total effect is to increase the amount of link juice, or power, towards your home page via your internal pages. For blogs, there exists at least one plugin that conveniently creates links to associated posts after each post you make. You should follow this plan with HTML sites, as well, and it is easy to link to your other pages in your site.

One of the significant shifts with search engine optimization is including social media marketing. What you need to do is make it possible to share your content regardless of the type of site you have. Place icons, or utilize plugins, that include links for sharing to Facebook and also Twitter to start. You will discover about close to a dozen substantial social sites which include Twitter that you should have. Yes, social SEO is actually something you will find out more about in the very near future making it important.

Obviously this is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of things to learn about. Also Google’s algorithm is not perfect so remember that. We won’t be surprised if social rankings had a larger effect along with regular backlinking.

Is it bad? (Thoughts about writing books of a series)

Let me be honest.

I’m afraid to work on book two of the Crossblade Chronicles. After the rewrite of Crossblade into In Search of the Sword, I’m honestly a bit intimidated.

I look at how long it takes George R. R. Martin to write one Song of Ice and Fire book, or how long it took Stephen King to write the entire Dark Tower series, and I shudder.

I guess, in a way, I think it is due to the size of the series that scares me. I’m much more comfortable writing another section of the afterwrath series, or one-off books like my current project, Death Pill. The sequel to ISOTS? Forget it.

What do you think? Am I justified in thinking this? Or just being a big baby? Have you felt this way working on a series?

With love,

Wake of Vultures Written, Death Pill begun

Hey guys.

Three quick things:

Wake of Vultures is finally written. I wrote about it on my afterwrath blog, so I won’t post too much about it here. But it picks up directly where the second part, Caw of Ravens, leaves off.

Also, I started work on my next project, Death Pill. This is a thriller – I guess – about a pill that kills instantly. The main character is forced to use it. More on that later.

Lastly, a bit of sad news. While my books have sold, it is not enough to pay the rent. As such, I’ve had to take up a day job to make ends meet. Its tough times we live in, and sometimes we do what we gotta do. As such, my writing and posting will be fewer and far between. I hate it as much as anyone, but such is a sacrifice I am willing to make for my family.

That’s all for now.

With love,

Why I Changed Crossblade to In Search of the Sword

Hey guys.

A bout two years ago, I wrote a story called “Paladin.” Then I updated the book and changed the title again to “Crossblade.”

Initially, I wrote the book under a different name, one that I thought reflected the heart of the story. But something inside of me rang false. When I was done, I read through it, found it boring, and discarded it. I wrote the whole thing again from scratch. I found that afterward, it the characters felt more realistic, yet the story was upbeat and full of action.

My hope is that my readers will like it too. The end result was the new story, In Search of the Sword, which I’m hoping to break the mold of common fantasy.

I am very satisfied with the end result of ISOTS (for short) and like the way it turned out. I think honestly, my first version was an attempt to dazzle people with long passages of descriptive text. This version is the real story.

Over the last few months, I’ve realized that my goal is not to impress, but to entertain. And that’s what I aim to do. When I first started writing, I tried to impress people with my words. Now I’m more focused on the story.

I see that a lot more clearly now.

And even if my writing doesn’t reflect our time period, I’m comfortable and empowered by it. Letting go of words I don’t need is freeing.

And while some authors may love to describe everything little thing, it’s just not me. I respect every author’s technique, mine is just more succinct.

I truly admire and respect the forefathers of the fantasy genre. I’m also grateful for current popular writers such as George R. R. Martin and Patrick Rothfuss.

Who is this book for?

Well, to be honest, I hadn’t thought of that when I wrote it. Looking at it now, I would say the intended age range for this story is young adults. By that, I’d say anyone from teenage to about thirty, although the themes within may be valued by anyone. Really, I consider the book a fast paced, action packed fantasy novel if I were to call it anything. I believe that many of us are attention deficient these days, due to current media. While I’m not trying to exacerbate this problem, I can’t ignore it either. The idea is that maybe – just maybe – I can hook the current generation with a book that keeps the action level high.

I guess we’ll see.
