re: Why Should Developers Blog? VIEW POST

re: Just a couple of notes regarding your wall of links at the top. If you use the RSS connection for your posts then you can mark canonical url on you...

Thanks for the tips.

I find that the audiences are different in different platforms.

So far I got more subscribers from here than other places.


This is a great platform. They have incorporated lots of things for you. Using the rss and canonical links helps with the way you get ranked by search engines. They will trash duplicate pages and having your site listed as the canonical means that search engines keep your page and trash the others (which are likely larger sites with better overall rankings) and having any link to your site improves your ranking as well.

I didn't know about the RSS tool.

I should do that instead of cross-posting everything manually.

But all it does is show the link to the original post.

At least for Medium, that's what it's doing.

Is that all it does?

That's all that that it does, but the label is something that search engines recognize.

I see. That's convenient.

I guess both ways have value.

If I import my WordPress feed, it'll get the content.

But if I import my Medium feed, it won't get the content.

Looks like it's just getting whatever is in the feed.
