A tip for you – look at your blog in an RSS reader. Similarly, look at it in a mobile device. This will reveal things you may need to fix.

This snapshot is from a very famous and popular social media expert’s blog. He may have never seen his own blog from an RSS reader. (Below, you can see the detail of the bottom of one of his posts.) It’s obvious that he is trying to have the search engines find his material, rather than providing useful words for real humans to find it.

It’s fine to use tons of tags to help search engines find you. But if your list of tags for each post is huge, please hide them.

I’d be happy to advise Mr. Famous Blogger how to make this change to his blog.
