    Blog Titles (fnarfley)

    Give some thought to what each blog entry will be entitled.

    Look up at the top of your browser, in the titlebar. You should see "Blog Titles (fnarfley) - RetouchPRO" or something similar.

    Search engines give disproportionate importance to the title of any single page. I'll bet you within a few days this page will rank quite highly for "fnarfley".

    While I doubt you have any particular interest in fnarfley (most don't), it would help this page get found by the few (or the one) that does.

    So don't title your blog entry "yesterday's topic, part II", at least not if you want it to be found by anyone searching for that topic, whatever it happened to be.

    Be specific, at least when it's important. Not too many people will be searching for what you had this morning for breakfast, so those posts can be titled whatever you like. But if you are hoping for a wider audience, include the topic explicitly in the title, along with other pertinent words, such as "review" or "tutorial" or "exploded".

      So what are these "various...

      Shouting into the abyss

      I know, some times it feels like no one is listening. This early in the blogging game, you might even be right. The search engines only found these blogs a few days ago, and it will take awhile to be indexed, ranked, etc.

      In addition, unlike the forums, there is currently no way of measuring...

      How many blogs do you subscribe to? I thought so.

      Just as you have to look at photographs if you plan on making your own, and you need to read novels if you plan on writing one, if you want to blog well you have to read good blogs.
