There are you. Sitting in front of your computer keyboard with fingers ready to fly across those keys. You’re ready to write up your next great blog post… except the inspiration well has run dry and you have no idea where to start. It’s called writer’s block and you most certainly aren’t alone. It’s a problem that plagues many a blogger.
Google freshness update implemented within its algorithm has just opened up larger opportunities from websites to increase their rankings. Making slight adjustments to your blog and older content can have a huge benefit going forward. To encourage bloggers from constantly updating their information, they added this update, which I believe was genius.
In the first part of this list, we talked about how you can combat writer’s block as a blogger by physically taking yourself to a different location and indulging in a delicious cup of coffee.

When Twitter first arrived on the scene, smartphones were nowhere near the mainstream phenomenon they are today. The notion of apps and an app store was still some time away and the only way you could send out a “tweet” was by sending a text message to a specific number.

In the 1st part of the series, we discussed how adding fresh new content can increase your Google rankings.

This means you have a higher chance of your pages being listed within the SERP’s for specific keywords.
No, this ring is not worth $2.5 million (it cost about $16K). So why am I calling it a $2.5 million ring? Because that is what it represent. The $2.5 million ring is one of four rings given to seven-figure earners of MOBE. Any affiliates who earn over $1 million in MOBE commissions gets one. They get another at $2.5 million, $5 million, and $7.5 million.
The Google freshness aspect of the algorithm has changed the way that websites are ranked within the SERP’s. Google is rewarding those websites that make frequent changes to their website with higher rankings within the SERP’s. It’s a great way to ensure that the content found by searchers is always up-to-date so Google will continue to dominate the search engines.
Technology is bringing a lot of changes in the way people engage online. For bloggers, we see new trends developing in email marketing, web design, and content marketing.

It’s important to treat local business websites differently than those focusing globally.

If you go about life doing all the normal things that everyone else is doing and that everyone else is expecting you to do, the only outcome you can really expect is to be normal.
