After listening in and asking a few questions in Tuesdays twitter chat, #googlepluschat it really got me thinking. So this evening I signed out of Google and started doing some searches. What did I search for:
- Joshua Lee(my name)
- Joshua Lee Google Plus
With searches number 1 and 2 I got nothing. I went 15 pages in and still NOTHING! However, when I search AndroidNurd, which is my twitter handle as well as my blog name; I take up every result on the first page. SEO is very important to me. For my followers who don’t know what that is:
This is extremely important for someone like me who relies almost solely on Google’s traffic to get people to view my posts. I want to get my stuff to more and more people. Yes social media is also very important, but people get on Google every day and search. I want to pop up in these searches. I want to be on the first page of results. For the majority out there, if it’s not on the first page then it doesn’t exist. Well, to be honest, I want to EXIST! I want people other than who I interact with on a daily bases to know that I am here! So I am reaching out for help to become more easily searchable. So if there’s anyone out there with any advice then I am all ears. I am totally open to learning new things.
If you are still reading I have a few questions. All answers and advice are welcome.
- With my name being Joshua Lee and such a common name should I add AndroidNurd to my Google Plus profile to fall in line with being searchable like my twitter account?
- What can I do to my blog to make Google or other search engines show my posts more?
- How can I monetize my blog?
- What advice do you have for me? It could be the look of my blog, what I’m posting about, maybe even topics I should cover. Anything at all I am open to discussion.

Again I want to say thank you to all that can help me out. It is greatly appreciated and I enjoy the conversations!
