ʻO Duane mai Manaʻo + Hoʻohou has been a great reader and he's my first blog-tippee so I'm going to reward him with some big tips to fine-tune his blog (which is already top-notch!):
Eia kaʻu ʻōlelo aʻoaʻo no kāu blog:
- Search engines really love to rank sites higher if the name of the site matches the domain name. It's one of the reasons why my site will never rank tops for “Marketing and Technology”… doesn't match “douglaskarr”. You've got a fantastic domain but a different blog name. Perhaps you can somehow include “creative” and “traction” in the subheading of your blog (if you want to keep the blog title).
- To keep folks around, I'd recommend the Pākuʻi Post pili a kau i nā pou pili ma lalo o kēlā me kēia pou. ʻO kēia ala e ʻike ka poʻe iā ʻoe ma o ka ʻenekini Huli e heluhelu i kāu mau pou a inā ʻaʻole lākou e ʻike pono i ka mea a lākou e pono ai, e hoʻopili lākou no nā ʻatikala hou aʻe e pili ana i ka mea like. E kōkua pū kēia me pilina hohonu no ka ʻenekini Search Engine.
- You've got a couple RSS buttons fighting for my attention. I believe you could better attract folks to your feed by using the default orange RSS feed icons in the far right column instead of the theme's blue icons. (I also recommend using FeedBurner to measure your feeds and add some additional features, like email subscriptions)
- Your posts are fantastic, concise and well-written. As well, you have the blessing of living in one of the finest cities on the Planet – Vancouver still takes #1, though. 🙂 To match your style of writing and promote your home, I would love to see you find a great image of Toronto, perhaps the busy skyline at night, and put that has a header image where the big blue header background is. It would liven up your theme. Something similar to the picture on your About Page would be great – it's happy, colorful… and shows some of that hustle and bustle!
Fantastic Blog, Duane! Nui nā mea a mākou e aʻo ai mai iā ʻoe - me kāu aʻo maʻamau i ka Public Relations, Marketing, a me Physiology a me kāu hana o kēia manawa me kāu Agency Advertising. ʻAʻohe kānalua ke lawe nei ʻoe i ke kamaʻilio i ka pae aʻe!
