That's exactly why we've set up podcastpowermarketing.com to help content marketers understand how to get started the right way when they're setting up a podcast. We've even got a free cheat sheet on the site to help you get started so feel free to grab a copy if you need some help on that..."
the code is for edge cases where you may have product pages with a phone number, and the expected behaviour is a user hits the page then calls the company. In these cases the code is useful, however using it for a blog is futile, and only fools yourself into thinking your blog is relevant to your audience when it may well not be. Don't use it to simply reduce the bounce rate of your blog, concentrate instead in adding a "relevant post" plugin to your blog instead that serves up related content. This WILL reduce your bounce rate as people will genuinely spend time on your blog because it's interesting. There's a reason that bounce is measured, making it artificially go away makes not sense at all."
Babanature, you still don't get it do you. The Google code on the Google blog says quite clearly that it exists to assist edge cases where the expected behaviour is a bounce (user arrives at website, finds a phone number, calls the company, and leaves the site having fulfilled their contact with the company offline and leaves the site). You're twisting the blog's words and saying that Google advocate it for general use, that's totally untrue. We've all read the blog and I'm sure you have too, the difference is we understand it you simply don't seem to. This code is not offered by Google as a way to artificially reduce your bounce rate (go get a statement from Matt Cutts that says it is and we'll probably believe your story, good luck with that...), your constant attack to everyone who is giving you good advice here that artificially reducing your bounce rate is only kidding yourself and of no value to a marketing or SEO campaign simple shows you know very little about currenrt analytics strategies at all. "
LOL from that very link you posted is the following verbatim from the page: if you have a description of the product right on the landing page, and your phone number on the same page. The visitor might study the description and call straight away - again, they will be recorded as a bounced visitor, as only 1 page was viewed Most blogs are not going to get this kind of user interaction. I think you should read the links you post yourself..."
Thanks for the comments everyone. Discipline is a true test of whether you are enjoying what you do. If it flows you're probably loving what you do. If you have to force yourself to do something you won't stick at it long, so look elsewhere for your passion. When you do something fulfilling, discipline is totally redundant! "
