And it’s legal.
Okay, here’s something that those of you who do have personal blogs can do to boost the Google page ranking of one or more of your titles whether that title is here at Triond or on some other site. Now there is nothing new about what I’m going to tell you. And there’s a good chance that you may already know this. The reason why I’m blogging about it in this article is because I just started doing it myself. What have I just started doing?

I’ve known for some time that there are a few of my pieces in my Triond profile that have consistently gotten a respectable amount of hits day after day, week after week and month after month. When I Google the subject matter of one of these articles the title usually appears on the third or fourth page. Just think how many hits this article would get if it appeared on the first page at the top? I plan to work it to as close to the top of first page as possible.
This is how I’m going to do it.
(First I should say up front that there is very little difference between what I blog about on my personal blog Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette and what I blog about on Triond. The adult material on the Gazette is only around %5 of the content.)
I blog nearly every day on the Gazette. It’s usually just one article, a commentary over 100 words. In the text or at the bottom of the commentary I put in a link to the article on Triond whose ranking I’m trying to boost. I will keep doing this until further notice. The increasing number of links to the article will drive more traffic to the article and will make Google aware of the title’s increasing importance. I plan to do the same thing with other titles in my profile on my way to hitting my target of making three dollars a day from blogging by March 1.
You might want to consider doing the same thing with some of your better performing titles.
P.S. Don’t add a bunch of links to the same article in one day. This is a red flag to Google. Remember, a successful blogger takes the long view.
