Should Deserted Blogs Still Appear in Search Results?

Category: BloggingKelseySearch EnginesSEO Comments: No comments

If a blog isn’t updated regularly, should it still get a high position in search engine result pages (SERPs)? This is a quandary that every internet user has probably faced when searching for something specific. While some users undoubtedly don’t look at the dates of blog posts, others may find it irritating that a blog hasn’t been updated in the last few months to a year.

OPINION: Why I’m Glad My Mom Is On Facebook

Category: Kelseysocial media Comments: One comment

And my aunts. And my elementary-aged cousin. And that random really nice lady that I think is my great step-aunt but I’m not sure. Really. I am. Honestly if I was hiding anything from my mom I would have started a long time ago. I never snuck out. I told my mom I drank in college. She knows. So instead of looking at Facebook as another way for her and the rest of my close-knit family to check up on me, I like to think of it as a way for me to keep them up-to-date in my life, and they do the same for me. 

There are so many status updates, information, and photos I would have never gotten to see and experience if there wasn’t Facebook. My aunt never would have emailed us all the video of my cousin dancing at a pep rally for her dance team. Same with the vacation pictures of my cousin and her twin girls when they went to Disneyland for the Disney Marathon. I wouldn’t have known that my mom is feeling under the weather and might stay at home for the day. These are just things we don’t always go out of our way to share in person. And for that reason alone, I’m glad my mom is on Facebook. I like being nosy and knowing how my family is doing, even if it’s just the fact that she is watching ‘Ever After’ for the 50th time.

Heck, I’ve even been published in a few Hubspot e-books in partnership with Who’s Blogging What. But just because you read HubSpot’s features, you download their ebooks and watch their free webinars, it doesn’t mean that you are an internet marketing expert.

Let me explain.
