One of the great things about owning your own website is that you can say what the hell you want to say and you don't have to worry about anyone else. I actually mentioned this already somewhere on my website in it's early stages and my convictions for the need to own your own website/s have become even stronger. If you take a look at what is available to you and you actually participate in several Blogs then you might begin to understand how they are all different. Probably the most forgiving Blog Network (with the most benefits to your website) is something called Squidoo. Have you ever heard of Squidoo? Take a look at my video production because you are never going to forget Squidoo because of me. See what happens to someone after I introduce them to Squidoo. It is amazing isn't it?
Squidoo is a good place for children and those of us who don't have award winning writing abilities. What the hell is "writing ability" anyway? Lets say you know how to impress people by the fact you can write English much better than others. When you write about things are you writing for a small audience of english language experts or do you want to participate as much as you can in the WWW (world wide web) ??
The choice is yours entirely. I personally would recommend gifted writers ( unlike myself) to try different things. Try making an Avatar for example who is a hippy and go and join a Blog Network that you would not normally want to associate yourself with. Try and learn their language and don't let anyone know that you are actually a brilliant writer. I believe that you are going to benefit in ways that you probably don't understand right now. This is because people who are considered to be "less" than you actually know things that you are not aware of and vice versa. I say that we should all learn from everyone and anything that we can. Don't you think it is an exciting idea to write things for as many people as possible? Don't forget that a very large percentage of the world right now can speak English but it is not their mother tongue. If we are so concerned about "perfect writing" then we could end up excluding people who might have something very important to say to us but have been prevented because they were considered to be "low quality"
Have you ever seen a child complete their first Blog? I have! I saw a child managing to finish a Squidoo lens and that is one of the main reasons Why I like Squidoo
Now that I have convinced you to join Squidoo and make your first lens, then just stay for a while and get to know some people. This is going to be very important for your confidence. After that you might want to start delving into other Blogs like HubPages, Wordpress, Blogger and anything that takes your fancy. The training that Squidoo provides for you will be invaluable and you won't have to worry about keeping up to a certain standard to succeed. All you have to do is listen to some of the monster advice you are given when you start building Blog pages. You will begin to understand how this works and what is required. Of course there are going to be people who disagree with me and say that you should start somewhere else and being something different but this is my own website and I told you earlier on that I am free to say and feel whatever I want. If you believe that my intentions are good and that I might be able to help you, then take my advice because I rarely give advice. A lot of what I do has to do with questions. Yes! The problem that many people are facing is "what should I be doing" and you are going to stuck there forever if you do not make the first move.
My website is focusing a lot on domain name value and website worth but let me tell you that simply making a website full of "great content" is not going to be enough to succeed. Let me tell you that first of all that your own website is the most valuable thing you could possess, simply because you are allowed to sell it later on. Even if you don't want to sell it, you at least have the freedom to do so. The next video explains this rather well. People should start to value their own websites more than anything else and make it a point to keep uploading material to their sites. You will also need to participate in social networks and blogs to get your backlinks and the most powerful backlinks will come from popular pages on other networks that you created. Yes! Unfortunately you will need to work a lot.
Some people don't work a lot because they are part of a ring of individuals who own High Page Rank websites. I call them the "Link Mafia" even though no-one would normally suspect they are into foul play. Some of these people get to where they are because they are part of a secret fraternity or link ring group. If you care to research certain high page rank sites it will become very clear. You will see that there is hardly any content on some of these extremely powerful sites but it does not mean that they don't get traffic. They do get traffic and when you have that sort of authority you only need to write a few words on a page and you can expect that page to rank high in search engines like Google. Forget about those people because they did not get to where they are by hard work. Let them have their day of glory but don't let it stop you from producing your own unique content websites and working on blogs and social networks to get referrals to your own site.
Some of you might already understand the difference between useful and useless links and I am sorry if you already know the difference but I am leaving the blue link for those of you who need to know. This website now contains about 250 pages and sometimes I have to repeat an old message because I must not think that everyone who comes here is at the same level.
I have not covered Facebook and Twitter because I believe that they are less important from a search engine perspective in the beginning. I have written about Twitter on this website but you probably won't be able to find the links to those pages easily. If you want to know more about Twitter then the best way is to look for "whoisbid" on Twitter and follow me.
