After a long downtime I think I’m finally getting my blog back up and ready as a wordpress.org blog! I still have tons to figure out, specially why all of a sudden my site dropped off the search engines indexes. The blog is live and the URL is valid and working but for whatever reason, today… I’m invisible to google, yahoo, bing, you name it! I resubmitted sitemaps today, maybe that’s why. It’s really odd and SUPER ANNOYING.
I have a pretty big backlog of posts that I will need to get to as soon as I resolve all my technical difficulties. The good news… I have learned a lot about css coding in the last few days. I have learned a ton about wordpress.org and I’m getting ready to introduce my recipe index and my recipe cards. It’s gonna be fun! Now my photos are showing up correctly and as big as the post container can allow… took a little bit of css hackery but I got it working. Anyways. Hang in there! This blog is almost medium rare!
I’m also trying to get better content and it’s amazing how many things can go into improving the search-ability of a blog. I’m currently proofing my posts using the Yoast SEO plugin and that has already taught me a ton about how search engines index content and how they handle meta data. The plugin also allows you to customize the meta data generated with the post to improve the chances of ranking higher in search engines. I’m still invisible to search engines but one thing at a time. I have a huge laundry list. I’m getting there! If I can fix my Facebook page today that would be incredible. At the moment the URL is busted, and although people have access to it and it looks like a Facebook page, the URL bugs me incredibly so that’s gotta get fixed. I’ll stop my rambling now. Time to work on this stuff. See yah!
