Well it seems that I really need to learn a little more about blogging, especially if I want to make a name for myself and getting websites that I am working on noticed online.
Some of the websites I am currently working on are: http://www.cellphonefinder.com for cell phones with plans, its mirror site http://www.cell-phone-finder.net, http://www.cells1.com also for cell phones and plans, http://www.wesleyswireless.com for cell phones without plans ( Unlocked cell phones) , and http://www.agentwes.com a Washington real estate community and blog
I wasn’t really sure what to blog about, so I came up with an Idea for this blog. How about a blog where I give an overview of most of the things I have done to help get my online businesses rolling, as well as a daily log of useful online business related information. Having it publicly available is kind of my way to give back for all of the help from open source community. 90% of my sites are from free code, templates, CMS, plug-ins etc. I give many thanks to those donating their time to produce and support these fantastic, free products. While there are too many contributors to list, I would feel bad if I didn’t at least name a few of the big contributors. One site is built around a template I got freely from http://www.virtualpromote.com/, another built using e-commerce suite http://www.oscommerce.com, and another using the CMS http://www.mamboserver.com.
When thinking about useful information that myself and others may be able to use, one thought was a running history of google page rank or google pr. I’m constantly trying to improve my google page rank, but have had to learn the hard way. One of the things I wonder on a daily basis is if google has made a page rank update or not. I have not found any other sites that track that information usefully. So I thought I would at a minimum post in this blog everyday, the name of my sites and their google page rank, and if I’ve noticed a google page rank update. The thought is this will help track for patterns the google page rank update system. Some of the benefits I see; first we’ll see if google does thier PR update at a specific time of year, or after so many months, and when we might be able to expect the next update. Another benefit I see is that myself and others will be able to track by using this blog, when google made its last update, and its most recent update. Then we can go back and see what things we have done on our websites or for our websites between that time, and how much our google page rank changed and in if it went up or down, etc. For example, did we do any advertising campaigns, did we do a link exchange campaign or any other promotional type campaigns, or maybe we did some SEO changes to the code of our sites, etc.
