How many backlinks to you actually need - SEO tips

Recent Wordpress Site Projects - Robert Ryan WordPress Developer

If you're thinking to yourself that it's been quiet on the western front - with the western front being this ole blog right here - then you'd be 100% correct. It has been so quiet here that you can probably hear me weeping my tears of shame. On a nearly daily basis I espouse the values and benefits of ongoing blogging to clients yet here I am, playing the hypocritical harmonica to a tune that we're all too familiar with. So, do as I say - not as ...

The No Blogging Experiment is Over

251 days, or 8 months and 7 days. That's the amount of time between this post and the last blog post. You don't need to be an online marketing expert to know that that is way too long a period to have between posts but I wanted to run an experiment of sorts to see what would happen if I let the blogging slide?
