  1. Pat,
    What great information for someone like me just starting out. I especially liked the part about linking. It would have never occurred to me that it would let the “spiders” see you more. It was also a nice to to use your key word or words, but do not over due them. Thank you. 🙂

    • Kelly,
      How delightful to have you visit my blog and take the time to comment. Two ways to make linking work for you as Marsha teaches is to first link to a relevant post within your own blog using a free plugin. The other way, is to find a good blog, like Marsha’s or Ann’s blog or even mine 🙂 and link your article to a post that adds value to what you are writing about.

      Yes, Keywords in your Headlines, two or three times in your post is likely enough.
      Do have fun in the learning process. Come back often! 🙂

      Pat
