Blogger Quick Tips – Fix Errors for Traffic


blogger quick tipsAs much as I’m a stickler for spelling and grammar, I still tend to make mistakes on blog posts.  The other day I wrote an article using the word conscious.  Initially I spelled it wrong.  I didn’t realize until after I had posted it to my Facebook page that I’d made an error.

I wanted to kick myself because now my error would stay on the Facebook feed until it got pushed to obscurity.  Really, I should be happy.  Now I can come back here and fix it and the RSS feed will think it’s new and resend it to the web and feed readers.  If I make a mistake, it’s a second chance at publicity through the feeds!

Here are three rules if you do fix errors on a post:

1.  Minor spelling and grammar mistakes can be updated without notice.

2.  Spacing and formatting quirks common to the blogging platforms can be corrected without notice.

3.  Factual errors should be noted for your audience.  Refer to the original phrase or paragraph.  Apologize if necessary.
