    Friends,

    My church blog audience has stopped growing. I'd be interested to hear any ideas that you have for increasing my Internet Ministry's reach.

    Peace,

    I'll take it you also have it cross linked with your Facebook & Google+ Pages right?

    Yes I have cross linked with Facebook, but I haven't figured Google+ out yet.

    Do you use tagging on your blog?

    Friends,

    My Blog is tied to several Blog lists, and I've had some problems with them, ie Malware attacking through those sites. I'll check out Blog Catalog and Link Reviewer and let you know.

    I do use tagging on my Blog. However, I have found that using Key Words in the Title of my posts is more important than the tags. I think when Google reworked the algorithm last year they made tags less important and increased the importance of Key Words and Links. And I have seen this emphasis through Google Analytic's.

    Thanks for the impute,

    Pastor Bill
