When you write articles for your site, you'd want to take more time than I'm taking now....
True. On average I probably rewrite articles at least 5-6 times, sometimes more. Iíll get a general idea, put it together, sleep on it a few times and go back to it. I also go back to it a few times before itís published for grammar and punctuation, but Iím not perfect by any means.
As far as message boards Iím not as selective but do proof read a few times.
You would not want to say...
- How to Fix a Car Clutch
I guess Iím not very smart..hehe. What other kind of clutches are there? <joke>
Also, you can't simply create a different subject by changing the title. The content and the title need to work together, and organization overall is important.
Completely agree. I have to get off that title tag addictionÖitís a tough one.
As I note above, if you are breaking these up simply to target keyword variants, and the articles are otherwise similar, this may be a problem area. It's very possible that the three or four that talk about types of milk all belong in one article with subheadings... as with the 2004-2009 Widgetmobile clutches.
Iím beginning to see a pattern here especially with pages where the time spent is less than one minute that appears to be in the 12% range of the site.
"Names and locations" by themselves don't work for Google any more
That is not the purpose. Itís more about book marking or social sharing. Titles should be somewhat descriptive donít you think? I agree with the unique description. Specialization features of what each company or individual is involved in would be a good addition.
Iíve learned not to chase the algoÖbut I did get sucked into it in the summer of 2010...smallish scale. I donít use content management systems (unless Iím considered one) but in order to organize where certain files are I have run into a repetitious problem. Iím not a Phd like many of you guys <joke>
However, a good portion of those pages seem to be unaffected judging buy the fact they do hold decent positions in the SERPS. IE: not page two, but positions on page one. Several up in the #1 to #3 slot but theyíre table scraps. Not bad as far as time spent on those pages averaging almost two minutes.
As far as other items youíve mentioned; Iím there. Introduction, get to the point. Use headings, break it down into an organized manner and so forth. Links to related pages. Itís all there. That is not a problem.
Thanks for your time. Same for Ted. Go engineers.
