    The nice thing about [easyazon-link asin=”0470616342″ locale=”us”]blogging[/easyazon-link] is how it brings like minded people closer – you won’t be reading my blog if you didn’t share my love for beauty and beautiful things right?  And sometimes, when something a blogger posts resonates with me I feel the need to make my mark and add my 2 cents – enter the comments!

    As a blogger and a blog reader, I love looking through the comments box. Sometimes, the most interesting things and discussions take place in there among the readers and that is really fun!

    As a blogger, you can facilitate this by showing off your comments and ensuring that the link to the comment box is easily found and accessible from the main page, and from the inside of your post. As a reader, I’m sure you too will be more likely to click through a post with high comment count to see what the fuss is about, right? I know I do.

Why did Google decide to inform us again when you’d think that all webmasters, and especially marketers are very aware that a page title is the most important part of SEO?

    It’s simple: despite what we should now, many marketers focus on other things and ignore the importance of titles not only in SEO, but in actually getting people to click on the link. It’s a call-to-action, and if its boring, not that interesting and doesn’t engage a user, then perhaps that is the difference between lots of clicks and no clicks whatsoeve
