Comments and Search Terms, or SEO Writing and Pat Smear

  SEO (Search Engine Optimized) Writing seems to be the main topic of interest that anyone ever comments about here on this little blog of mine. It’s fascinating. With all of the writing that I and sometimes my husband do about pop culture, music, theatre and the occasional recipe for canine cuisine, the one weirdContinue reading “Comments and Search Terms, or SEO Writing and Pat Smear”
