In the month of March, my web sites collectively exceeded one million page views for the first time. Actually, there were 1,301,222 page views, so I am well on my way to two million!
I am not posting this in order to toot my own horn. Rather, I do it to share the results of my strategies for web presence management and search engine optimization (SEO). These strategies, which combine blogging tools with quality content and solid SEO, create a virtuous cycle of traffic growth. I can help you implement similar strategies to help you boost traffic and rankings for your site. For a free assessment of your web site, click here.

Congratulations to Technorati for bypassing the 100,000,000 link mark. Wow!
The technorati team is growing too, including the addition of Joi Ito. More interesting things are sure to come from the Link Reputation service.
Yesterday I posted my first Movable Type plugin, MTDynamic, on my new site, MT Hacks.
The plugin enables dynamic rendering of Movable Type blogs by using parameters in the URL. This can be used to display an entire MT site (pr just selected pages) dynamically, which opens up some interesting applications. One is the filtering of content by blog author, catgeory, and other criteria.

Anyone seeing any changes?
Try this search on google: "gay adoption statistics". Look closely at the results. You will find dozens of hits on porn sites and "spam" sites.
Now take a look at the pages that Google cached for these sites. You will see innocent-looking pages. Someone is spoofing google.
Take a look at the first site, everythingonweb.net. Now put "everythingonweb.net" into google and use the "contains the term" option to see what you get: thousands of cross-linked pages.
Try "bosh dishwasher" get to a spam site via these guys.
Try "teen smoking statistics"...
What a mess.

In addition to blog design and customization, I can provide advice and strategies for promoting blogs and web sites, to ensure that a large number of people find your site.
Just for the challenge, I have entered an SEO competition. There are virtually no rules. The goal is to rank high for search query "SERPs" for a newly created page. The page hasn't been indexed by Google yet, but in a few days, you can check on my progress by searching for SERPs.
David Sifry presents a simple method for limiting comments for only one week after the entry was posted. There are both advantages and disadvantages of implementing this - but it does simplify comment management significantly and it may be suitable for some blogs.
I have just posted over at Web Dawn about peer-to-peer reputation systems. The idea is to use social network-based trust to store reputation information in a P2P network. Click here to read more.
