Blog Review: Online SEO Blog

Vishal Darji requested a Free Blog Review of his blog, Online SEO Blog.

Here’s the review…

What is Online SEO Blog?

Blog Review: Online SEO Blog

According to the Blogger profile page Vishal Darji is a professional SEO consultant who lives in India and, as you might guess, his blog is mainly concerned with SEO topics.

Site Design/Theme

While I’m not a big fan of Blogger blogs, the template and layout on this one is actually quite good. It’s two column with the sidebar on the right and has a visually appealing look

Navigation is very good with a nice tag list and archive box. The only change I’d suggest here would be switching the position of the MyBlogLog widget to the footer or below the tag/label list.

Monetization consists of Google Adsense. I don’t recommend it for this kind of blog due to the low paying ads and the possibility of it getting smart priced. Plus it may show competing SEO service ads. I’d recommend using the blog to heavily promote his own SEO consulting services.

Content

The content of Online SEO Blog is well written speaking-from-authority style content. Most of it is basic knowledge but is worthwhile if one is new to SEO or wants a review. Some of it is repackaging of news stories but this isn’t overdone. Here are some articles I found interesting:

3 Steps to Getting More Traffic from YouTube is a nice basic article on using YouTube for traffic building purposes.

Top 6 reasons why your search engine rankings have dropped gives some simple explanations as to why a site’s ranking in Google might have dropped.

SEO in Site Architecture is a good tutorial on some basic site design methods to use to improve your site’s profile for Google. 

Overall

I found Online SEO Blog to be a good, basic, information source on SEO matters. The Blogger template is well done. My main recommendation is to get rid of Adsense.

Hi Alex,

It’s been interesting doing these reviews. Most people have something good to offer on their blog. I’ve only been asked to review a few that didn’t.
