Much of what we do online is a test. There’s never a guarantee that our post will be indexed by any of the search engines. How many times have we written a post and used the proper keywords, and it’s on the second page rather than the first? It happens.
But on the same note we, more often than not, find our posts on the first page and above the fold. We make note of what we did to get there, and we continually repeat that similar format.
If you notice others who are attempting similar posts, do you check the search engines to see if they are doing it properly? I know, it’s not our job to do that, but I think it’s called goodwill and sharing information with others. It’s always a test isn’t it?
Some pass with flying colors and others don’t even take the initiative to sit for the exam. Which category do you find yourself in? That’s right, it’s a rhetorical question, but it would be to your benefit to think about the honest answer.
It’s not difficult to help someone who is trying to successfully accomplish a new task. Imagine how much easier life would be if more people practiced sharing information without feeling threatened about doing it?
