A few months ago, I went to a friend’s blog to search for a great post he had written and I had previously left a comment on. I wanted to add a link to his article in a new blog post I was working on because I knew that the information in his post would be valuable to my blog readers. It’s also a great idea, in terms of SEO, to link out to high quality content in each one of your blog posts.

This is a really great post, Ileane.

I was one of the ones that took down my search box because I'd read a post about readers being disappointed if they can't find what they're looking for. Heck, they'd be disappointed if they can't find the search box to even attempt to find what they're looking for, as you mentioned.

A while back, I actually almost missed out on a chance at being mentioned in Ana Hoffman's roundup post because she couldn't find a search box to find a post she wanted to include. She actually emailed me directly to request the link to the post, which is an extra step she didn't have to do and I was grateful that she took the time to do so.

Even after that, I still didn't put a search box on my site. However, after reading your post, I've just gone in and added the search box back to my site. What you demonstrated in this tutorial is a really good reason to do so. The search box has much more traffic and info benefits then disadvantages.

Thanks for taking the time to create this tutorial for us. I appreciate it! :)

P.S. I wonder if you could suggest a good transcription service to me. I've just recently posted a blog commenting tutorial on my blog and I'd like to get the video transcribed. I was thinking of using Fivver.com. But I know sometimes there's a wait for a quality provider and I'd like to get it done as soon as possible. Thanks in advance for your suggestions! :)

Go for it Tcamba! I think that's an excellent field for you to do tutorials in.

Basically the idea here is to attach a google analytics to every search item so that it will be registered to your analytics and if ever it will be useful, you can fetch the information anytime on your panel.

The tips and instructions are really specified well. Inspires me to create my own tutorial site about my engineering field.
