"SEO Theory" Is Just A Theory

But so is gravity, knucklehead. So listen up! Tiff was spreading bloggerly, linky love last week and some of it came my way. This meme is way to read some very fine posts and promote a few of your own. Below, you will find a list of blogs with three of their very best posts (or at least the three they most want to promote). To participate, simply copy the existing list and add your own blog and three stellar posts to the end. Tag a few people and you're done! You might pick up a few new readers or get hooked on one of the other blogs on the list. If nothing else, you'll increase your Technorati rank and authority and help your blog's self esteem.

Oh yeah, and "SEO" stands for search engine optimization, just in case you were wondering and too lazy to look it up.

Instructions from the originator:

"This seo meme was conceived and designed by Bobby at Revellian .com. This is a new fun seo meme ride for us all. This is based on the seo theory that links to posts inside your blog are more important than links to your home page. I have selected three posts I want to promote along with my site’s name. You will do the same thing.

Let’s keep it simple and spread our good work around to both share and build some ratings! Make sure you pick three posts that you feel are your best. You could also select 3 posts you simply want to promote. Your site name is listed with your 3 selected posts beneath.

Once you have your post up: Add the sites and post links of the folks you tagged onto your post. Try to add the site and post links to anyone involved to maximize the effectiveness. Tag a minimum of 5 people.

Try your best not to double tag people so it will spread better! Please actually read the posts from everyone so you can see some really good work from our beloved blogging friends! Make your title a little different from mine to avoid repetitive titles."

Instructions from Tiff:

"Links to posts inside your blog are more important than links to your home page. The players of the seo meme select three posts they want to promote, and adds their name and chosen posts to a list of links in their "taggers" post, then posting the whole list inside their blog. A minimum of 5 people are tagged by each new player. The new players are encouraged to read posts from everyone so that the work of fellow bloggers can be discovered and enjoyed."

Now for the fun part: Who do I tag? Well, I think everyone on my links list deserves recognition and awareness. I will name a few, but anyone who wants to do this meme should do it, invite or not. I will leave my fifth and upwards tags open to all who wish to participate. The other four tags are magnetbabe, dr. sardonicus, beth, and dave. Among other things, I am damn curious to see which three posts y'all pick to share with the world! One more thing.. Once all is said and done, add your post at Bobby’s site by leaving a comment at Revellian’s Best Posts SEO Meme.

Edited: I will be adding links that my tagged bloggers post so as to maximize all of the linky benefits! Just added magnetbabe's contribution.

dr sardonicus said...

I may have three good ones somewhere...

tiff said...

Woohoo! And thanks!

Beth said...

Holy crap, have no idea what posts I would consider "good." Hmmm, this is hard. I'll have to really work on this one, really try to remember some old stuff or even new stuff. lol Thanks, Fermi.

It'll be neat to see what others picked though, including yourself!

Beth said...

I just read (re-read two) of your picks and I have to say, you made GREAT choices! I loved them. Still is upsetting about where you grew up being ... well, gone.

Jim Donahue said...

Off topic, but I just noticed that you posted the "Little, Big" cover.

Great book!

Dave said...

The problem is choosing between what I've written about that I like and that which other people like, as judged by the number of comments. The categories sometimes don't match.

I have one in mind and will search through the archives for a couple of others. Then I have to read the instructions again. Copy and paste, add me, go to her blog and add something or other. I'm not good at this stuff you know.

Thanks for the honor of being tagged.

Bobby said...

Hi!!! I have added your post links on the original meme. Several other folks are good about updating their lists so it will end up on more too.

To get the most out of this, ask people who have done this meme to add you to theirs and vice versa!

fermicat said...

dr s - I know you do!

tiff - you're welcome, and thanks.

beth - I know you're good for it. And thanks!

jim - recommended by a friend, and I am taking a shamefully long time to read it, but I love it!

dave - go with your gut. Show off the good posts that may have previously flown under the radar. And yes, I was confused at first, but that'll teach me to drink so much...

bobby - welcome to this humble blog, and thanks for starting a cool meme!

magnetbabe said...

Okay, mine is up after much scrutiny and agonizing!

dr sardonicus said...

I've got mine up now.

Ditto what Doc said.

Dave said...

I already read those three. I want three more, more distant in time, before I knew you, so to speak, that are equally as good.

Go Tech, kinda, you're playing my school tomorrow. Which version of both of our teams shows up will determine the outcome, I think. The talkers on 790 The Zone say Tech's defense will carry the day.

Dave said...

I just looked at my penultimate comment, it turns out I'm "anonymous." I have no idea how that happened.

Dave said...

Hey Fermi,

Thanks for reading my posts. Your Email address is in the office computer and I figure that you won't go back to the Thanksgiving story to read a response to your comment, so.

Thanksgiving is a bit tough for me,in a way, but good in other ways. Last year at my brother's house was a kind of trip to the past. Bother, cousins and kids. Like when I was a kid, just different faces, all the same traditions, even some of the same stories.

I'm supposed to go back this year, but, I don't know if I can get away for it. If I don't you can read a post on substituting a chicken for a turkey in a convection toaster oven.

fermicat said...

Doc and Dave - great job, both of you. I added your posts to my list here, just in case someone stumbles in months from now and gets curious.

Dave - It was tough trying to choose posts. I almost chose one about a friend who died, but in the end went for the ones I listed. I'm surprised you read the "Weekly Thoughtful Reminder" previously, since that one went pretty far into the archives. I didn't get any comments on it at the time, but I only had a few readers back then. I was very satisfied with that post even with that lack of attention it got.

Hi Nice Blog .The best means of accomplishing this is by creating a resource out of your sidebar links seo school. If not you might just be giving links to the competition. However if you create a series of links that are useful to your audience. The reader will be more likely to view your blog as a resource rather than a doorway to somewhere else.
