Scribe SEO Plugin – Need To Spend Too Much Time, Money & Energy

I was reading an article by Julie R. Neidlinger on WPDaily about Scribe SEO Plugin. First of all, thanks to Julie, for an honest review. I think if you need to spend that amount of time and money for SEO, it’s better to hire expert. It’s not for normal blogger or site owner. Market research guys could get benefit from it. But not average to even mid user.

Though I always advice that writer needs to learn how to write SEO friendly article. SEO should be blend in writing, not entirely focusing to get rank better in Search, but focusing more on making sense, help people in finding content, understand content and overall to help reader.

Facebook Sharing & Engagement Is Not Free Anymore


Nick Bilton wrote an article on NYT Bits how Facebook engagement dropped, and works only when you pay. It’s a shame. I also have same kind of result. And I also did test. Without paying it’s not possible even to reach to your 1% user, who are already subscribed, or liked your page. It’s not unintentional algorithm issue, its Facebook’s business approach. So Facebook sharing is not as free as it were year ago.
