Page Ranking And Back-Up Blog

Heard that Mr. G is doing some page ranking on the 15th... that is today... so how is your blog ranking?  Mine seems to be "forever 3"...  never going up and hopefully not going down.  Anyway, for those of us who are not making money in blogging, the ranking does not count. 

Heard that too many paid posts in our blogs is more serious-er.... the whole blog can "disappear" (deleted) cos it is considered a "spamming blog."  Speaking from experience, yes, I have lost my food blog "Let's Wallop" because I have "deposited" a lot of paid posts in that blog. 

Now I got to be more cautious.... but you see, humans are humans.... when the "$$" sign is there, I tell myself, "aiyah, one or two more paid posts don't hurt the blog."  So from there, it is like a "disease,"  I kept posting more and more paid posts till suddenly one morning, I realized the whole blog has gone for good....

No use crying over spilled milk... so what I should do now it to BACK-UP my blog at least once each month.  Speaking of such, I better do that now before I forget...

So .. do you Back-Up your blog?  (just in case......)

  13. Hey, is it true about the blog being deleted? I'm not aware of that. But how did Google identify it as paid posts?
    Mind sharing more on this.

  17. U're scaring me, dear! I've a lot of paid posts too, but I back up frequently. Thinking of switching to self-hosting but just no time :<

  18. Paid posts can mark a red flag on your blog but sometimes it is how the paid post is structured that has a factor on the rank. For as long as the content remain relevant and true, ranking remains.

  19. It's always important to see what the competitors are doing to get rankings and rely on that more than what random people say on blogs. My advice anyways. I do agree with your thoughts on SEO though! Thank you.

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
