Within few hours, a year is going to pass and I look back to think about what I have accomplished.
Do you already have plans on what to do in 2013?
Plans About New Year 2013
I have many projects – both offline and online – and without entering (for now) in details, I summarize by saying that I want to keep growing my business and my income, in order to improve the quality of my life.
Sometimes the changes are scary, but if you follow your instincts, then you know you are doing the right thing.
There are people who do not change anything in their lives, because they are scared of what can happen.
And so there are bloggers who are afraid to change something in their blogs.
Changes are good if you feel positive. If you want to grow your blog, then you need to keep improving it.
And in order to improve, sometimes you need to make changes.
Google has made some big changes during 2012 and the webmasters know that SEO game is changed.
Read three of my best articles of this year about SEO :
I think in the future, social signals will be even more important than today in order to rank well in search engines.
New social networks will open.
And if you think about it, link building methods are really different today than the past.
Guest posting ruled this year, for anyone who wanted to build safe and quality backlinks.
I have started my guest posting campaign since a couple of months, after 2 years that I started blogging without any guest posts. And the benefits in terms of online visibility and rankings have no price.
The best part of guest posting is the relationship you can build with the blog owner, in my opinion.
And I think guest posting will continue to be the safest method to build quality inbound links during 2013.
