Continuing in the series of posts recapping the first 12 months of Twenty Steps, we move onto September and I covered a number of different subjects including why Google would wear a ribbed condom inside out, why the standard of written English gets on my tits, why authority sites are the best way to make money online and how to write for an online audience.

  • Google loooove Google long time – Despite what some people have suggested, I’m not anti-Google at all. However I do believe that a lot of their actions aren’t quite as squeaky clean as they’d like us to believe. That having been said, they’re currently the King of the castle so we have to play by their rules, right? Right?
  • Yeah but no but yeah – The one where I rant about the standard of both written and spoken English.
  • Respect my authoritah – Authority sites are without question the best way to make money. The question is, of course, how many sites can you actually run and be genuinely considered an authority without outsourcing?
  • Writing for the web – Interestingly enough, this has been getting quite a bit of StumbleUpon traffic over the last couple of months. Not bad for a post nearly a year old!

I actually wrote a lot more that month but most of them were short, punchy pieces about very specific news items so I haven’t included them in the list. Feel free, though, to have a read through them using the Sitemap. September starts with Google loooove Google long time and finishes with List of 3000 directories. Don’t jump onto October just yet, though. Surely you don’t want to ruin the surprise…

    I just don’t get StumbleUpon is there a guide to getting traffic from it that you’d recomend Mike?

    Maki over at Dosh Dosh has written an excellent StumbleUpon guide – How to Build Massive Traffic to Your Website. Well worth a read.

    Excellent thanks for the reference. I’m partly stumped as everytime I tag that I like a page I just end up with a blank window…

    Right off to read the guide.

    I respect Google, but I do agree with you on how they aren’t that squeaky. I don’t like how they cancel adsense accounts for no reason, I noticed ebay is starting to do that with their parntern network also. And no one can do anything about it, that’s makes me furious.
