Friday Bits & Pieces: Google Attacks, How to Talk to VAs, and Content Isn’t King
I’ve been traveling this week for work, so unfortunately, I’m short on time for blogging. It does really bother me when I don’t have the time to sit down and write a thoughtful article with my usual detail and analysis, but that’s how things go when you have major obligations with your “day job.” With that said, I’ve read some pretty interesting articles/blog posts over the past week that I really want to share with you. Hopefully you’ll find these interesting as well:
- Your Sites Might Be In Danger…Mine Are – Spencer from the Niche Adsense Challenge site (one of the niche site duel participants) talks about how Google recently changed some part of its ranking calculations (it’s not clear what exactly changed), which has really hurt the rankings of some of his sites. He links to some good articles that further explain this mysterious change by Google.
- How to E-mail Virtual Assistants (or Any Assistants): Proven Templates – This was a guest post on Tim Ferriss’ blog that I thought would be extremely helpful for anyone who currently utilizes VAs. Even if you don’t find these specific templates helpful, there are some important key takeaways that are relevant to any communication you have with your VAs.
- 5 Ridiculous Myths You Actually Believe About Blogging – This is an entertaining piece written by Murray from Murlu.com, about some very common items that people believe about blogging, but he takes a sort of “devil’s advocate” approach by pointing out the flaws within these common beliefs. The first myth that he exposes: Content is king.
That’s all for now, as I get ready to head back to Chicago tonight. Have a great weekend!
