Happy New Year

Ringing in the New Year

With the new year almost upon us I find myself reflecting on the events that happened during 2011. For others it might be a time to create a set of goals for next year. Or, maybe just a simple resolution or something you hope to accomplish in 2012.

I like reading news articles that remind me of events and things that happened in 2011. The things that happened early in 2011 are the ones I tend to forget about. The more recent, larger, and more talked about events are the ones I remember.

I am not big on resolutions or goals. Usually things get off to a good start, but they don’t last for long.

Scheduling WordPress Posts

One of my favorite Wordpress features is the ability to schedule posts for a later date and time. Now this may not seem like anything exciting, but for me it can be a huge time saver. Basically it allows me to add several new posts all in one setting and pick a time and day that I want them to actually go live. Sort of along the lines of adding new posts to a queue. Some other website software scripts out there have this feature, but many do not.

On top of scheduling several all in one setting it is also very convenient if you want a post to go live at a specific time of day. If you see an increase in traffic at a certain time of day maybe you want your post to happen during the usual spike.

Google Pagerank Update

Google Pagerank Update August 4, 2011

For those of you that follow Google Pagerank there was another update today August 4th, 2011. This makes 3 updates in a relatively short period of time. It is not uncommon to see activity like this from Google, but we tend to hear about the lack of updates and frequency more often.

In the past 5 weeks give or take a few days there was a Google Pagerank Update June 27th, 2011. Another Google Pagerank Update July 18th, 2011, and now this one on August 4th, 2011.

It is fairly common for Google to perform an update and follow up with a tweak/adjustment or two shortly after. Whether this is it for a while now or not nobody knows for sure.

My WordPress Quest

And…so my Wordpress quest begins. I have pondered and even procrastinated creating a wordpress blog on more occasions than I can count now. Bottom line I guess is that I finally gave in and went for it.

I obviously will have a number of things to tweak and work out in the coming days and weeks, but at least it is a move in the direction I would like to go.

If you are looking for webmaster resources, tips, seo, marketing, and making money then in the near future you may want to follow this blog and add your input.

It is a dofollow blog with keywordluv and commentluv enabled so it is to your benefit. My homepage is pr3 and this blog was just recently linked to it so hopefully it will see at least a pr2-3 depending on where Google is with their update. Once the link juice starts moving it should do well.
