Google Page Rank on a WordPress.com Blog

Vote on Blog Engage[tweetmeme source=”ileane”]Using free blogging software from WordPress known as WordPress.com, such as I do here on this blog Ms. Ileane Speaks,  is a great way to get started with blogging.  I discuss the debate about blogging on WordPress.com over other free platforms like Blogger over at Ms. Ileane’s Blog, but using any free blogging software platform has several disadvantages. It’s much better to register a domain name, acquire a web host and download the software for a self-hosted WordPress blog.

I won’t list all of the disadvantages for using WordPress.com here, but one of the primary arguments against having a free blog is the fact that you cannot use plugins or various themes that can improve your SEO and Page Rank with Google, Bing, Yahoo! and other search engines.

For those of us that continue to use the free WordPress.com service you can rest assured, there is still hope.  This morning I checked the page rank for this blog using Google Page Rank checker and I was pleased to see a score of 4 out of 10.

This is a pretty good score considering I haven’t applied many SEO strategies. I mentioned previously in Top 5 Blog Topics, that page rank has not been a huge concern for me on this blog.

In the upcoming year, I’ve made a resolution to learn more about SEO.  I’m finding some of the SEO techniques pretty easy to do and you can get started today. Here’s a short video from Chuck at CyberSmartMarketing called Link Surfing Your Website for On-Page SEO to give you a hand.

If you are considering the move to a self-hosted WordPress blog or website, contact Chuck at CyberSmartMarketing. You can also follow him on Twitter @MrCyberSmartSEO

In the meantime, take a look at your page rank and leave a comment to let me know where you stand.

Smooches!

Passwords For Days

I recommend that you start making a list of your passwords.

I’m not saying that you are forgetful or that you have CRS (can’t remember sh**) like me, I’m warning you ahead of time that you’re going to be signing up for a bunch of stuff and you will need to keep track of passwords and personal URLs somehow.

You see here’s the thing, in order for us to navigate the sea of social media tools and discover what works best for our individual needs we are gonna have to sign up for stuff.  I know, I know you don’t feel like it, neither did I as first.  I felt like, this is such a pain in the neck, can’t I just to go on Face Book or Twitter and call it a day. But after I blogged about social networking resourses two weeks ago, I thought it made sense to follow up on my own advice. After all, Face Book and Twitter are great ways to stay in touch with friends and followers but I wanted to take it to the next level. I wanted something more mainstream.
