Blogger Tip for Search Engine Optimization

Many bloggers provide current links to articles that they reference in their posts. I frequently do this and recently found that some of those links were expired or broken-Search engines don’t like broken links and they spank your ratings. I discovered this in some of my posts that were a year or so older.

My solution is now to reference the newpaper, New York Times, for example, with the name of the story. The main link will be to the Times and readers can do a search for the story. Hope this helps in your search engine optimization journey.
