Google; love ’em or leave them. Leave them and become obsolete sooner. That’s a lesson many bloggers learn early in their online content life. If you’re hoping people will find some of your articles, it’s best not to irk them… at least that’s what most people believe.
Can you index which one is me?
A couple of months ago I went through the exhausting process of working through the Google algorithm via their search console “page indexing” category. Google and I have kind of a bad relationship when it comes to this blog; I’ll come back to that in a minute or two (depending how fast you read lol). In this case I’d been receiving monthly email saying my articles weren’t indexing. It wasn’t just this blog I own that had that issue, but it had a high volume of articles it wasn’t indexing compared to the others.

Congratulations; you’re getting a two-fer via today’s post. Let’s start by talking about written copyrights and your blog.
Back in 2010, just before the start of summer, I was contacted by a company called Digiprove. They asked if I wanted to try out a new plugin and program they had called Copyright Proof, which would add code at the bottom of your articles to let people know that you owned the copywritten material on the page.
This is explained down below
You might not believe it now, but back then this site was ranked in the top 75,000 websites in the world. I was doing SEO much differently back then, and it worked wonders; take a look at the article I wrote before this one. I used to get lots of free offers to try things out, and this was one of the few I decided to go for. The plugin added this:

How’s that for a blog title? Yes, it’s accurate… but slightly misleading. It was also necessary.
I’ve also lost 70 pounds since 2012!
I have deleted over 500 articles in total; just not all of them on this blog.I’ve deleted about 350 here, and about 150 on my business blog. I’m about to tell you why, because it’s something you might want to think about when it comes to your blog, especially if it’s older.

One of the things I do to generate more income is offer writing services to others. I have a link on Fiverr and an account on Upwork; neither of those get me anywhere.
I’m a be me!
Every once in a while I go through a couple of the remaining forums I still belong to, posting my little bit of advertising for writing services. When I’m posting those articles, I always include a link to some article samples so people can see that I can write different ways on different topics. None of them are overly long, as it’s only supposed to be a sample.

It was about 2 1/2 months ago when I wrote an article comparing blogging to playing in poker tournaments. Once again I’m diving into the gambling world, this time time the stakes are drastically different (see what I did there?). This is also an updated blog post from over 14 years ago; my memory isn’t bad, but some of what I’m addressing early on isn’t as memorable as I might allude to.
it’s a gamble living in central New York
There was this period of time back then where I read news stories about people in positions of authority that had been caught stealing money from their organizations and using that money to support their gambling habits. Locally, there was the story of a man who’d just been sent to prison for stealing $272,000 or so and spending it all on gambling.
