Stop Losing Money!

YOU are losing money. Every single day you are losing more and more. How?

where to eat
place to stay
he drove a new car
she had a baby
How I set about my craft
make money
help is available
best bank
best hotel
great restaurant
fun carnival
‘super’ anything
‘terrific’ anything
‘awesome’ anything

These are NOT focused tags. A tag should be a phrase that would be typed into a search engine in order to find your article. You are writing for a global audience. If you’re talking about places, you need to be specific as to what city/country you are referring to. Tags like ‘make money’ are nowhere near focused enough. There are thousands of ways to make money. You need to specify like ‘make money writing’ or ‘make money painting dolls’ etc.

Our bounce rate is a huge deal and getting to be a bigger deal with every search engine update. Using generic tags is losing you, and the site, and other writers money every month. Do your part and focus your tags! While you’re at it:

No one word tags
No more than 6 total tags per article
Capitalize proper names just like you would in a sentence
Capitalize the pronoun I
Do not put tags in ALL CAPS. IT LOOKS LIKE YOU ARE SHOUTING.
Do not duplicate category names in your tags.
Do not duplicate your title in your tags.

If a word or phrase has more than one meaning, you need to be more specific before using it as a tag.
