Here’s a topic I’ve covered many times over the years, but haven’t touched upon in the longest time. The catalyst for writing this article came from a brief discussion with a long time friend of mine about the gripe I have with Google and my blog articles.

Truthfully, Google sometimes feels like they hate me. Many times my article don’t show up within the first 300 links on there and it irks me to no end. In those times, I’ve learned that the only time I’ll find an article of mine is when I type the entire title of the article surrounded by quotation marks (that’s how you search for anything that has specific terms in the way you want to see them).

Then, a couple of weeks ago my friend Mitchell Allen started trouble; he’s like that. lol He’d read one of my newer posts and sent me an email. He wondered why there was a strike-through on the links associated with the images I had on that article, wondering if I’d done it on purpose.
