Cog Blog 100th Post | Top 10 Posts

100 days ago this Blog began... A post a day will keep the sleep away! The mission then, remains the mission today.... To provide news and SEO information suited for even new webmasters. Many Blogs and forums offer plenty of information for experienced webmasters, but fall short when helping the less experienced. When I started, this was a hurdle for me too. I decided to provide a place where a new webmaster or an experienced webmaster could find helpful information that was more easily absorbed than commonly found. No judgements or limited explanations, just the facts as best I could explain them.

So here we are 100 posts later, and the Blog is coming along OK. I have no plans of slowing down, so you will be able to come here in the future and find helpful posts and ask questions. While I certainly do not have the answers to everything, I can generally find out. This Blog was described to me by a friend who has no webmaster experience as "being very easy to understand", so on that note I'll call it a success. Thanks to everyone who has linked, stopped by, emailed or commented....I hope you found something helpful!
