Over the past couple of months I’ve used both WordPress SEO by Yoast, and the default All In One SEO Pack on this web site. So far I’ve seen little if any difference in the use of either of these web SEO tools.

This tells me that I’ve got no idea what I’m doing with either of the SEO tools, and I’m writing crap, that few if anyone wants to read. Seeing as I’ve been unemployed for 15 months, I’ve been concentrating on writing with the expectation that over the past year, that this and my writing would begin to generate some income. So far that’s not occurred.
So now it’s time to take stock and begin to look seriously at the content and what I’m doing writing, and judge as to whether or not, this is a viable income stream potential or not. I’ve also seen options of creating a subscription service where readers will pay an annual fee for access to the site. This is also an option to consider, as I’ve no support or financial backing for my efforts.
There is also an ongoing issue to change the format of the web site and it’s current theme. The “WhiteHouse” theme is a free WordPress theme and while I like it, I don’t love it. What type of theme do I want? I can’t fully describe it, and sort of like Porn, I’ll know the proper theme when I see it.
Ok enough of my semi rant this Sunday morning. Thanks to all who do stop by and read the content here. I appreciate you time and effort. I’ll continue to provide content here and look for changes in the near future.
Posting this to assist others out there, as well as taking the recommendations to heart as well.
I’ve added two new pages here. Denver Dining and Ski Colorado.
If you’ve found the blog, you’ll once again notice a theme change. I’m using the Suffusion Theme.
I have a Google Analytics account and it hasn’t been reporting correctly for the blog for the past week. So I’ve gone back and am working to reinstall the correct piece of code for Google Analytics. However when looking for the proper place to insert the code, there is no such place in this theme.
I wonder if it’s bad programming or just an oversight on the theme creators part. It’s amazingly frustrating to say the least, not to be able to correctly get info from the blog.
I’m currently working to update and to a certain extent, make my own list of WordPress Widgets, given the tools afforded to me by WordPress.
However I’m continually frustrated by the lack of a consistent user interface, as I see it, from WordPress regarding the “Available Widgets,” and the “Inactive Widgets.”
Regardless of my adding all the available widgets to the “Available Widgets” area, or removing all of the widgets to the “Inactive Widgets” area, there is no change in the blog even after a refresh.
Why should something so simple, be so entirely difficult?
Well, you might have noticed some of the side noise missing here this afternoon. I decided to begin to make some changes to the blog and of course the first thing that’s lost are the widgets and their content.
I’m a bit frustrated that none of the WordPress themes look at all like their thumbnail’s when you preview them. #FAIL on that WordPress. And after looking at a dozen or so of the WordPress Themes, they all begin to run together and my eyes begin to glaze over.
We’re making progress, even if they’re just baby steps.
The blog your reading is hosted on the WordPress platform and capably hosted by the fine folks at HostRail.
The other day I had bookmarked a site about WordPress Plugins, and decided to take a closer look at it this afternoon. The site, 13 Best WordPress SEO Plugins Every Blog Should Have appears interesting which is why I decided to take another look at it.
Now as I’m looking at it a bit more closely, I’m wondering if I really need everything the article says I need for this and the other two WordPress sites I have. The article by it’s title indicates I need all 13 plugins, and yet to me that seems to be a bit of overkill and duplication of SEO effort.
I wonder, is SEO that disjointed that a web site needs 13 different tools to accomplish essentially the same function and result?
This is from the Summit Daily, the local paper of Summit County, Colorado.
Now this is also something for webmasters and those of us who blog and post things to blogs. It would be in the best interest of everyone to take another look at the partial or citation type of posts to RSS readers so as to avoid such confusion.
