This post is part of the weekly series Friday Finds featuring news that you may find both valuable and interesting. The topics that I’ll be focusing on this week include a security vulnerability in two popular WordPress plugins, award winning websites, a blogger’s view of keyword stuffing and infographics about online marketing strategies and social media. As always, please feel free to share your thoughts, concerns and experiences in the comment section. That way, we can all continue to learn from each other.
According to Google Webmaster Tools, keyword stuffing is defined as “the practice of loading a webpage with keywords or numbers in an attempt to manipulate a site’s ranking in Google search results”. They go on to say that it “results in a negative user experience, and can harm your site’s ranking”. So, how can we write good content that our blog readers will enjoy while not getting penalized by the search engines?
