Blog Review: SEO Marketing Blog

UPDATE 2/15/2009: This domain is now a parking page.

Kaushal requested a Free Blog Review of the blog, SEO Marketing Blog and here it is…

What is SEO Marketing Blog?

SEO Marketing Blog

Problem #1: There is not About page so I don’t know anything about the author. From the title and the content we can assume that the site is about search engine optimization but an About page is needed.

Site Design/Theme

The WordPress theme is Ad Flex SEO, a fairly plain 2 column, sidebar on left, theme. It’s readable, if a bit dull. I would highly recommend making the presentation spicier.

Navigation is hampered by an odd placement of the Home button but is otherwise OK.

The Sociable plugin is in use on the blog but there are 18 bookmarks active. I would suggest cutting this back to only sites that bring traffic. Also, since post a partial everywhere except single post pages, I’d recommend only using the bookmarking links with the full post.

And, speaking of partial posts, the RSS feed is one place where this blog needs work. The RSS feeds are partial. I’d recommend making them full. Also, the link for the feed is buried in the footer and no email subscription is offered. I’d strongly recommend getting the RSS feed at the top of the sidebar and using FeedBurner to deliver feeds.

Monetization is through Google Adsense. I have a lot of doubts about using it on a SEO related blog. I don’t think it would make enough money for the space it takes up.

Content

Posting on SEO Marketing Blog has been rather sporadic recently with only 5 articles in November. Since the blog is only 2 months old this isn’t a good sign. Next, let’s look at the content of the articles.

The top article on the site is Exclusive list of 268 Social Bookmarking and Networking Sites, a handy list of social bookmarking sites.

Tips to Get Repeat Web Traffic and Returning Visitors and So, what is Keyword Density?? are decent, basic, SEO articles. Solid but nothing you haven’t seen before.

Overall

The site needs some work to get it into good shape. Beyond some much needed functional changes, better, more original, content is also needed. It looks a bit like a blog that’s dying young right now. Kaushal will have to make some choices soon regarding its future.

Get Your Site Reviewed

If you would like your site reviewed by me for free, just like Kaushal did, use my Free Blog Review page to request one. Since I’ve gotten quite a back log I’m going to be doing two at a time spaced out about every 4-5 posts until I get caught up.
