on Just Publishing Advice:
It took me years to understand how to write a blog post that ranks on Google and Bing. I was a very slow learner.
For way too long, I was under the impression that if I wrote a lot of words often enough, about anything, everything would magically happen. In a general sense, I was right.
I got visitors to my blog posts, comments, made friends and all was well with the world. Well, if 10, 20 or 30 visits to my blog each day was a sign of success, I was successful. But of course, I wasn’t.
Then I started to learn how to write blog posts for readers who are searching for answers, advice and actionable information on search engines.
