Bloglines.com shuts down! Not that this is a major deal, but it is if you use Bloglines.com as a news feed aggregator to distribute your articles. It also shows how quickly things can change.
We have been helping people get to the top of the search engines for quit some time and the amount of changes that happen through-out cyber space happen and they can happen quickly.
Bloglines is a well known web-based news aggregator for reading syndicated feeds using the RSS and Atom formats. The site was founded in June 2003 and sold in February 2005 to Ask.com.
How popular was it? Well in 2005, Bloglines hosted more than 200 million searchable blog articles and now Ask.com announced that on October 1, 2010 they would be shutting down.
The main reason we bring this is up is to remind you that anyone that bought a course that told you to use Bloglines as your feed distribitor now will have to go back to work and re-align their entire matrix. This will prove to be a very time consuming project.
Customers with the SEO-Alien however don’t have to do a thing, that is why we started this company. We knew going into this, stuff changes all the time. Several customers have also expressed to us that they bought an online course or paid for live training only 3 months ago and what they were taught is now outdated, yes the changes can happen overnight.
So if you are tired of all the headaches that come along with any “do it yourself” SEM or SEO course because of all the changes, updates and upkeep the SEO-Alien can help. If any changes were to happen that require a full time effort to fix, we are typically well aware of it before the changes happen and have made the adaptions without you even knowing it well in advance.
Bottom line is, any online or offline program for your SEO or SEM can be outdated as fast as when a major site like Bloglines shuts down. These types of things happen all the time on a wide scale of programs and website applications continuously. So buyer beware, SEO and SEM is a continual effort to keep up with all the changes,.. and nothing stays the same for very long.
