Hey all, Shuvo Noboborsh 1423 (Happy Bangla New Year.) I hope you are having a fun time. Today is day 5 of the 7 day challenge and I am blogging this.

Now when you are blogging, should you cover about recent trends and hot news topics?

When I first started blogging, I was informed that you should write timeless blog posts. Timeless means a topic which can be read throughout years.

Almost every blog theme has two columns. One large column on the left for the blog posts, the other smaller one on the right as the sidebar.

The sidebar of your blog plays an important role. Today I will share a few tips for your to make better use of your blog sidebar.

Left Sidebar, Right Sidebar, Two Sidebars or No Sidebar?

When picking up a theme for your blog, you will find various options for sidebars. My tip here is to keep it simple and have just one sidebar on the right hand side. I see many websites have the sidebar on the right while the main content on the left.

But it’s still worth experimenting the placement of your sidebar. Have at least one sidebar on your blog. Let me share why you need one: [Click to continue…]

Local SEO Basics, How I’m Doing Local SEO for My Academy

local_seoAfter moving to Habiganj, I have setup an office here. The office is the Academy serving local people with resources and courses related to web marketing. Now I have to invest my time into local SEO.

Yes local SEO matters, people are using the web on the go. Search engines and social networks know the location of their users and therefore they want to show relevant results in that location.

Can you afford losing that kind of digital exposure?

Let me bring you some of my findings and what I am doing to optimize my local SEO, both for my Academy and for my clients,
