I Have to Confess....

I have to confess that I don't know a thing about analyzing my blog stats, SEO, Blog Grades or any of the "other" gadgets designed to let me know how I'm doing.  I know that SEO is short for Search Engine Optimization and when I had a self hosted WordPress I was able to add on a widget that took care of all that, but now that I'm using the blogger platform I don't have a clue. 

You are probably wondering why I would move from Self hosted WordPress to Blogger - the answer is simple, it was all about cost!  I spent $150 last year to have my Self hosted WordPress Blog and this year I spent $10 for my domain name and I'm using the FREE Blogger platform.   So I would say the difference was $140 clams.  I do have a blog grade posted on my blog and it goes up and down depending on what I change.  I improved it from 83 to the 95 it is today, I think I must be doing something right (the total score is 100) since my Blog got an "A".

So what is Search Engine Optimization and why would I need it?  What is the difference between a Unique Visitor and a Regular Visitor?  I know that a unique person is one who stands out from the crowd and is different, but I somehow don't think that explanation is the case here.   So....in conclusion, HELP!  Hopefully
 someone knows the answer and will post it on a comment!

  1. This is so funny to me because I am so clueless about this tech stuff!

  2. I don't have a clue either, maybe we can all learn together :)
