I remember some time before, a blogging buddy told me that a certain type of blog layout may also contribute to increasing your chance of gaining page relevance from the leading search engine. We were discussing about PR then and she came out with this idea although I actually have no clue how it may work… I just didn’t bother to ask. I know not all but some of the essentials on how to qualify a blog for a page rank.
For me, there’s only one thing that I consider the most important in choosing a layout…and that is its capacity to load fast. Now I’m not saying pick the driest layout you can get either. There are lots of theme designers out there who can create fast loading templates without sacrificing its look and elegance.
So now back to my template. Why did I ask if it really does make a statement because it happened to me before. As soon as I updated my blog layout, that little green button I used to place at the sidebar surprisingly flashes a digit that’s no longer 0 but 3 ! Although I still refuse to believe that it’s because of the new layout installed instead I want to think that it was granted to me because I was determined to gain it back… and with an added point during that time. I wonder when it will happen again. I am not even certain if Page Rank toolbar is still around.

One good thing I appreciate about being an earning blogger is the fact I continue to learn no matter how struggling the challenge can be. Not all writers/publishers has the ability to write quality posts at any given time. There are those (like me) who require constant motivation in order to come up with a good blog entry. Like what I always say to my friends, blogging can be fun but to be able to meet a good search engine positioning for your blog, you also have to invest effort and even a certain amount to some extent.
Let’s face it, we, bloggers would as much as possible prefer whatever there is that’s for free – from free hosting to a free sign-up on SEO friendly web directory, social networking sites and hundreds of other online accounts. Being a 6-year old blogger, I admit my comprehension on SEO is still way insufficient. I even at some point associate web directories as search engines but thanks to the availability of these free SEO articles that I can browse at all times for the enlightenment.
Just to make a quick comparison to those who are still confused with its difference, a Search Engine is a software program designed to search for information from the World Wide Web based on keywords. The search results are usually presented in lists of web pages that often overwhelm users. The more specific they keywords you use (ex.: butt kicker at musicians friend) the narrower search results you get.
Structured directories on the other hand are its alternate. It holds a list of websites by category and subcategory. So, if you want to narrow down your search, a web directory is the place to be.
The Yahoo directory is the most widely-used directory by both merchants and non-merchants on the web while Open Directory Project also known as DMOZ is the largest directory on the web according to Wikipedia and its open content is mirrored at many sites including the Google Directory.
As the list of web directories is growing, its categories are also increasing in numbers. Some are free while the others are not. Again for free, we have nothing to worry about but if you prefer to pay to get listed, a thorough study should always be considered.

Before I engage myself into blogging, I only do as far as my PC can go. I usually don’t bother myself with such confusing technicalities so I don’t mind spending some for tech support each time I get into trouble. But that’s no longer the situation now.
Blogging entails constant web browsing and lots of downloading. Whether I like it or not I need to learn how to do some things on my own to keep my computer running smoothly – for less or even free! I’m talking about the basic – keeping my windows registry error-free with the help of special software. I realized it is not really that hard to do as I imagined it before.
However, beware also of free downloads! They’re flooding on the net. What you want is only the real thing that help and not harm your PC in just one blink so only download genuine products that you can trust.
