Thoughts on Product Tags and Blog Labels

I started off my morning with a post SEO: The Must-Dos That You Just Can’t Miss regarding blogging with purpose over at Razamazazzle. Some of the posts I find online regarding SEO kinda go in one eyeball and out the other. But I did see something in today that got me thinking a bit.

I often use Google autosuggest to find some ideas for tags on products in my online shop. Or sometimes I even use autosuggest to decide what products to make. Take for instance this search ...

It leads me to believe that yesterday when I added 10 or so polka dotted products to my store, I should have added some polka dot nails. I went back in today and fixed that.

Anyway, with regard to blogging, I know that I under labels posts here on my blog. I don't need to read a whole lot of "tips on blogging posts" to figure that out. I notice that all on my own because when I scroll down the list of old posts here at Blogger, those posts with no labels tend to have fewer overall views than labelled posts. So maybe being the start of a new year it is a good time to remind myself to try to find a good label or two with a tool such as autosuggest for every post.

I also read a post The What, Why and How of Native Advertising found via one of Mark Highton Ridley's g+ posts rather than his blog.

Though I'm absolutely sure this is not what they mean this post is not what they mean by native advertising, oh well, here are to polka dot nails I probably should have made yesterday.

I'm not particularly worried about cleverly hiding that I have an online shop in this blog. After all, I'm not fooled when I run across a travel blog that says they accept advertising links and they have a mostly glowing post about how great their stay was at a spa. I'm thinking, no way did that hotel seriously just give her a free room for 500 words of garbage on a blog with thirteen followers. But, if they did, maybe I should start a travel blog.

The take away from that article is that even if I'm not all that worried about hiding links to my online shop, it probably wouldn't hurt to figure out a way to get more relevant content (words) mixed into the posts.
