In my last post I talked about some dying or dead golf blogs. I think if you’ve left your golf blog for dead there are some things you should do.
1. Take it down. There are other golf blogs trying to “break in” to the golf blog world. It sucks for them and anyone else trying to get any kind of search engine ranking when some other golf blog that hasn’t been updated for a year is still ranking much higher on google.
2. If you don’t take it down, at least turn off your comments. There are a couple of golf blogs who’s comments are now a breeding ground for spam comments. Do us all a favor and do what you can to prevent spam comments!
3. Let us know you’re done. Rather than just disappearing, leave a post letting your readers know. MJ did just that that.
4. Us bloggers who still blog and have blogrolls should take the dead blogs OFF your blog roll. Perhaps after “x” number of months. Perhaps something like 6 months or so.
Doing so will stop pointing readers and search engines their way.
