In case you are one of my followers who kindly reblog my posts, you may notice that there is no reblog button anymore. A few weeks ago, Hugh of Hugh’s Views & News published a post about why he removed the button. Please read his post to receive the complete message. Hugh is a great supporter here on WordPress with his blogging tips.
One of the reasons for my decision is one of Hugh’s hints in our discussion: “…SEOs such as Google rank the blog they are reblogging lower. SEOs dislike duplicated content... SEOs dislike duplicated information of any kind, Erika. They also dislike duplicated blog post titles and will rank blogs lower. That’s why I always change the heading of a post I share.”
Since I want to reach as many people as possible to share inspiration, spread awareness, and hopefully make someone out there smile a bit more. If the range becomes limited only because my posts get reblogged then I waive it. But still, I do appreciate it a lot when my posts get shared. So, if you want to share my posts on WordPress you can still do that via Press This or by giving me a pingback in your post.
Again, a big thank you to Hugh for his support.
In Love and Light
