Blogging Genealogy: Blog Awards & SEO - BloggingGenealogy.com
Caroline Pointer has very recently posted an interesting post at her Blogging Genealogy blog regarding the negative hidden search engine optimisation effects of blog awards.
I have recently been honoured by fellow geneabloggers with two blog awards: the Blog of the Year 2012 award (of which I blogged about yesterday) and the Wonderful Team Readership award (for which I was composing a post). These awards were really appreciated.
However, Caroline's post has confirmed some uneasiness I felt about the system of blog awards.
I really appreciate the nominations I received for these blog awards and the bloggers I nominated were chosen because I genuinely enjoyed their blogs and wanted to acknowledge them on my blog. With this in mind I will soon create a 'blogs I follow' post acknowledging and linking to many of the blogs I read and enjoy.
Thanks to all my blog followers, especially those who nominated my blog for the blog awards. I really appreciate all of my readers and fellow geneabloggers.
