Looking For Comments

Last Update: August 18, 2013

I have written several articles on Streetarticles but have yet to have any feedback. I was hoping my WA family could read a few and tell me what you think(the good and the bad)

http://www.streetarticles.com/empowerment/our-responses-dictate-our-outcomes this is the link to my latest article. Thank you WA family for all that you do!

I have to say that choppydo's remarks were something that I was thinking as well. Maybe bold some of your words in the paragraphs. Break it up a bit. He took the words out of my mouth! Good job.

If I type the name of my article(responses dictate our outcomes) into google without " it is on the first page 2nd on the list. Not to sound stupid, I am new to all of this, but that is the result I am looking for isn't it?

In Google, as with most search engines, "personalisation" and "localisation" play a big part in the ordering of results, so always use an Incognito Tab in Chrome which will avoid "personalisation" to some degree. I make it fifth place, first page on Google .com http://d.pr/i/rr0A Congrats! :) Rich.

I left some feedback for you. Also, choppydo has some good recommendations. I always like to give a person a breather by breaking things up with headings.

Ok a few pointers:
-use mini headings in bold break up your story
-use smaller, bite-sized paragraphs
-Make your links ovious

On that last one- you have to let your audience know what`s on the other side of the link. "positive way" and "results" don`t really do it for me. Results is close but you should make a more specific promise.eg: "these methods" "the proven formula" "the right way" ... see what I`m getting at here?

And one last, important thing= SA is out! It simply doesn`t rank anymore. Both Kyle and Carson have told me that I am better off putting 95-100% of my content onto my website. You should follow suit. This way, you can actually get rankings and search traffic via a more direct route since SA doesn`t work anymore anyways.

Great advice. I often wondered if I should "waste" content on SA that I couldn't put into my site. You just gave me my answer. Thank you sir!

one of them is "spending money will make you rich" in Google you have to use the quotes, in bing do not.

Actually I just looked, if you do quotes in Bing as well, I have 3 of the 4 results as mine

And Google I have the top 2.

Well I`ll be! It really is ranked and by the looks of it in just 10 days! Now I don`t know what to think... Although, none of my 100 articles have ranked even after a full month. And according to Carson and Kyle, SA doesn`t rank anymore...Ohhhhhh a qsr of 5 well no wonder!

But ya in light of this, I still have to say that you`re better off putting content onto your actual site.

Well and also you have said so yourself that you were going for quantity not quality. You were just pumping as many out as you can.

I was going for quality more, that might also be a factor.

And obviously Kyle and Carson were wrong about SA not ranking anymore. Maybe the majority of them don't rank?

And that article from SA actually ranked number one on both Bing and Google only after about a few days. It wasn't actually posted on the 8th, it was the last part of June. And has been ranked for a while. I even wrote a blog about it, OMG I did NOT realize this happened but SO GLAD IT DID!!!, although that was a while ago and is now down.

I WAS going for quantity at first. Later on I slowed down and did get a reaction in terms of views and click-throughs. But nevertheless, none of my articles are ranked(atleast to my knowledge)

There`s an easier way, eh? Go comment on some other peoples articles and follow them. It`s common courtesy to get a comment back.

I must admit, I have been a little self absorbed. However in the last few days I have been trying to comment on more peoples work and contribute to their growth and development. Good job keeping me "working for the team"
