I have a few things that I wish to talk about, none of them could make an entire blog piece on their own so I thought it would make sense to mention them all in one blog. Firstly I am delighted to say that one of my clients has kindly agreed to be a guest writer in a day of two. The company specialises in data recovery and I believe they should be able to pass on some invaluable advice about looking after data and making backups.
Next as you can probably see, I have changed the appearance of the blog and I have decided to go with WordPress instead of the BlogCms blogging software we had before. Although the old design wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t as pretty I think it did very well SEO wise due to the fact that it had nice pretty urls instead of just ?cat_id=123 etc. I will have to see if I can implement that on this blog. An example of these urls working well is that they have brought a lot of visitors to one of my other blogs which still uses BlogCms. I wrote an article up about the BBC showing Saddam HusseinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s death on TV and I got quite a lot of visitors for the following searches:
saddam’s dead corpse
saddam corpse white
saddams dead corpse
I think this is why. It just goes to show that if you are topical it can bring some people in. It also shows what a morbid audience we are working with!
Finally, I have decided to drop speaking in the third person, or rather stop using the word Ã¢â‚¬Å“weÃ¢â‚¬Â instead of Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬Â. Although this blog is for the company Voodoochilli Design, it is me, Harry who is doing all of the writing. I have noticed that other successful blogs (problogger.net is a good example) are more personal. I may know about web design and development, but this blogging lark is pretty new to me, so bear with me.
