I started my blog in Jan 2008 – so it is now 54 months old. Not some iconic passage of time! In the beginning there used to be 10-12 readers, now there are about 5k regularly and once in a while it peaks to 15000. This is normally because of some link by yahoo – and in one case it was because of retweeting by Sucheta Dalal and Debashis Basu.
I am writing this because I do not see enough usage of the ‘categories’ that you see to the right of the main post. There are articles like http://www.subramoney.com/2008/02/secret-of-successful-investing-philosophy-statement/ which I am sure many of you have missed. Of course a similar example is there in my book http://www.subramoney.com/book-written-by-me/
Apart from articles like this I have written a few stories in the Investment Fables section. Also in sections like Investment myths I have written articles whose main aim is to be doing some myth busts..so please visit those and read them. I do put one story from 2008 or 2009 in facebook as well as one story on Twitter (pv subramanyam).
I have done a few stories on NPS. One of them is this http://www.subramoney.com/2011/06/nps-is-the-national-pension-scheme-suitable-for-you/.
Most of the articles that I have written have no ‘time’ stamp – something like a ‘Common Finance problems’ which is there on FB today (hey there is a subramoney page on FB too) seem to be common right from 2008 to 2012! Similarly the books to read – there in the category of books and book review is also quite timeless, but has undergone a lot of changes.
Once in a while I put it on Google also….
However I have not sought any help from any SEO – i am connected to a few SEOs on FB…but have never sought help / professional guidance on increasing the popularity. It is not as though I prefer an Indian audience, but I do not use words like ‘gas’ or ‘mortgage’ or some other US centric words. I do get readers from 50 countries – and feel good to realize that people in many geographies see what I write. I guess these could be Indians – NRI as we call them!
Happy browsing, happy reading. Please put all your comments on the blog, not on FB or elsewhere…
