Welcome to the Last Weekly Link Roundup
The Best Links of the Week
This weekly feature wraps up this week on this site. Charles Rogers will be taking it over starting this Tuesday.
1. Blogging advice articles say if you want to have a post with high page views, you should write an ultimate guide. Readers love ultimate guides. When Boni Satani wrote me with a submission for me to feature the Ultimate Guide to Event Planning, I was interested. Boni is from Buckinghamshire, England.
2. Replying to my request for links for this series, Vanilla Rainbow submitted a link. In a shocking twist, I changed links and chose another one on the site I thought my readers would find more relatable, How to Get More Followers. In an even more shocking twist, Vanilla Rainbow refused to tell me where he or she resides even though this is the International Link Roundup! I agree with the tips Vanilla Rainbow shared in the posts. They really do help get more blog subscribers.
3. Last September, when blogging influencer Neil Patel contacted me, I thought I had fallen asleep at my desk and dreamt it. He asked if I wanted his feature his SEO article in my roundup. I wrote back ecstatic and answered of course I would be interested.
Then, there was a delay. I never heard from him. Far be it from me to rush Neil Patel, who I am sure is extremely busy.
While commenting on his blog, I assured him I was still interested in featuring his SEO article. He said I could choose any one I like.
The article I chose was 5 Ways to Create Content that Google Wants to Rank. Neil has a point–only one article can be in the #1 position. Neil gives advice about what content you can create, so the article in the #1 spot can be yours.
(Note: If you are interested in quality link building to improve search engine optimization, we still have an active Link Exchange on this blog. If you would like to join, let me know your niche in the comments section.)
Community Bulletin Board
- Jennifer Calvert is looking for poem submissions. There doesn’t seem to be any requirements for the poem. Any format if fine. It can be authored by someone beside yourself.
- In upcoming news, I am trying to develop an idea for a book. I would be grateful if you helped me develop my book topic. Here is a link to a survey that will help me hone in on a blogging-related topic. I promise it will only take a few short moments of your time.
3. I wanted to address the obvious change in the blogging community over the last week. Your Twitter social share button is not broken. On November 20, Twitter did away with counting their social shares. From what I heard, they felt retweets were not an accurate sign of social proof since people were retweeting links to articles they hadn’t read.
This is Janice signing out. Please go support Charles Rogers and wish him luck in his new weekly series, the International Weekly Link Roundup which starts on his site this Tuesday, December 1.

It has been a pleasure offering you articles from around the world the last few months.

What do you think readers? Do you agree with Neil’s advice about how to rank in the #1 spot on Google? Do you have any other suggestions for how to optimize your posts for SEO or do you think about it?
Do you agree, as I do, with Vanilla Rainbow’s advice for getting new blog followers? Do you have any additional tips for getting new followers?
