Interesting SEO Suggestions for Bloggers and Knollers

In the site SEOBook, that supports The Blogger's Guide to SEO - by Aaron & Giovanna Wall, the authors have written that SEO methods are different for bloggers. They need to build a reader base and trust. They have to be more visible in the blogosphere.

Bloggers guide to SEO

The knol that Aaron Wall posted which was referred to in the above blog post was reshared by me in with the name SEO Basics - Search Engine Optimization Made Easy - Reshared Knol

Beginning of Active Sharing of Creative Commons License Knols

Knol provided the option of specifying various types of content sharing licenses to provide options to authors. Why authors specify creative commons 3.0 license? They specify the license to facilitate sharing of their content on various other blogs and websites. If no blogger or webmaster used the creative commons license content on their blogs and websites, the objective behind specifying creative commons is not attained. Knol authors have to proactively inform bloggers to share their content on through their blogs.

An initiative to promote active sharing of creative commons knols was launched by me. It facilitates locations of creative commons knols and also provides a format to blogger. Of course bloggers have more expertise in their activity and can share the information in their own way.

Some knols reshared today.

The blog Google Knols Reshared contains various knols with creative commons which are shared by me.

Knol Completing Three Years of Public Operations

Knol is open to everyone announcement was made on Google on 27.7.2008

On 27.7.2011, Knol will complete three years and start its fourth year of operations.

What has Knol achieved?

Many professors, professionals, corporate executives, business owners, authors and students contributed on Knol many learning materials. There are research papers published by scientists in some of the subjects as online research journals were started some organizations on Knol.

Apart from the education category there are many other categories like business, entertainment, music and shopping on Knol, There are many knols in these categories also.

Google has not managed this platform actively. It is acting as a passive provider of technology platform. Authors also could not come up with alternate ways of promoting the platform. But authors were very active in contributing 600,000 knols so far. There are at least 50,000 knols with 500 or more page views. There is good scope now to promote this good content by authors and get around 250,000 page views. Add another 350,000 page views from the remaining 550,000 knols, Knol can have 600,000 page views per day which is a good performance. It can increase to one million page views per day very quickly and one million page views per day is very respectable figure for any website.

Good days ahead for Knol
