I’ve turned to the Google god for help.

I try pretty  hard to get more hits on the blog, so even though I am a figure-it-out-for-myself kinda gal, I decided to do the dreaded thing of asking Google. Why is this a bad thing? Well I didn’t fancy trawling through 9 million hits to be honest to see how it’s done. But anyways, I did it and got 94 million hits. Great. I started at number one anyway and low and behold it turned out to be an education in how to use trackbacks (I know I should have always been using this). Better late than never. I came across Seth Godin’s blog, the dude who wrote Linchpin and Survival is not enough . He has 56 tips on how to get hits and some of them are hilarious! One is that you should write in Chinese, great tip given that it is the most widely spoken language in the world, it’s not OK to write about your boyfriend or your cat, but it’s OK to write about your kids, you should apparently write scathing things about other bloggers so that they will comment back or better still link back to you (not sure if I’ll do this). And the best one. Write about Google. 🙂
