A WebKEW reader creates a blog
People have started sending in links to blogs and web sites that they are creating. They come to WebKEW, get inspired and get moving. They are excited about getting started.
Here is an example of such a web site -- in this case a blog called "Our Technological Future":Singularity FAQ for Dummies.
This is a very simple and straightforward beginning, and it is a good one for four reasons:
- This blog has something of value to say - The first post shows that the author is going to have something unique and valuable to say to a community of people. In this case, the author has created a FAQ that introduces people to "the singularity". Someone who wants to learn about the singularity can come to this blog and find something of value. If they like what they read, they will link to it or email it to friends.
- This blog already shows signs of life in Google - Even though this blog is only a few days old, it already shows signs of life in Google. If you type "singularity FAQ" (with quotes) as a search term in Google, this FAQ is there. That means the Google has found and indexed the blog, and is ranking it ahead of several other entries because it has value.
- The blog has an AdSense ad on it - This ad will provide the author with some daily stats that are very easy to access.
- There is a nice set of links - A reader who arrives at this blog from a search engine or link will be be able to find more information about the topic by clicking on the links. That provides the blog's readers with additional value.
