Starting Over, Part 3 – Optimize

Posted by Dr-Pete

This post is a part of the “Starting Over” series, the story of starting a blog (MinimalTalent.com) from scratch. See the end of the post for links to the rest of the series.

In parts one and two, I showed how I got my blog off the ground, indexed by Google, and just starting to rank. Now, it’s time to dive in and sand off any rough edges, before they cause future SEO injuries.

But it gets worse for our little tweets.

First, most of us have a heck of a job consistently coming up with good content to tweet day after day. It’s kinda like going to the gym: we start out strong, but most of us quickly fade to where we spend the entire time in the sauna.

Second, even if we do come up with lots of good content, we risk undermining our own performance.

I want to talk with you about ways to squeeze the most out of the content we … Read the rest
