I've recently added feedjit, a live traffic feed, to my blog. Feedjit lets you know, right now, who is visiting your site. Maybe it's the "nosy" in me that likes this information, but I think it's very helpful to see who's visiting, where they're from, and what links they're clicking on from my blog. When I added this feed to my blog, I also signed up for their daily newsletter. I usually find these highly boring and quickly deleted, but this one is a little different. Each day this week they have focused on ways to improve your SEO (search engine optimization-- you know, how people find you!) They summed up SEO and how to make it work for you in one, colorful sentence:
"Create new, unique and useful web pages, host them on a user-friendly website that Google can understand and make sure the right people know about them."
Makes sense, doesn't it? I hope that I am doing all of the above. I'm learning something new every day... As I've said before, I am not an expert. But, I know how to learn from other people's experience and expertise. And I'm glad that you're coming along for the ride.
All the best! Jessica
