..my great Internet experiment. You see it all started a good few months ago when I realised that unless I pulled my blogging socks up I would quickly fall out of the Tots 100 and the hubby would prove himself to be a better mummy blogger than me.
So I analysed how the Tots 100 is calculated and looked at a few other ranking places to see how to get ranked highly in them. As you may have noticed, the blog did in fact shoot up to become Cision Top Ten and at the moment Tots 100 number 11. I also retained first page indexing on Google for the majority of my reviews. And I have done all of this without re-posting stuff on BMB (I’m not a member) or any of the other sites. I have also refrained from doing any guest posts.
I have used Twitter a great deal and I have to admit, often in a strategic manner. I’ve experimented with competitions, different types of posts and whether or not you need to comment endlessly on other peoples blogs. I’ve even done all this without writing a post about cyber-bullying or anything similar which I know would have got tons and tons of hits and comments.
It has all been interesting, and when I get five minutes without a child hanging off my leg I shall go onto the ins and outs of what I thought worked and what didn’t. Suffice to say, with the exception of getting through my review backlog, this blog will now return to its original style of random posts about my kids. I hope you still enjoy reading it, but if not, I wont take it to heart. I want to produce a record of our lives for myself, my husband and for my children, the rest is purely incidental.
