The first week of the Ranking My Blogs Case Study is done, and even if I won’t update my Keyword Rankings Spreadsheet until next week, I wanted to share with you what I’ve done this past week. I would also love to get your feedback on the things I’ve done or should do.

The past week has been far from a typical week, and I haven’t been able to spend as much time working online, but still managed to get some stuff done. Here are some of the things I’ve done on each of the websites this week (November 19-25) that I hope will be able to help my search rankings.

Business Card Critic

General changes to the website:

Changed the permalink structure in the WordPress setting to only include the category & postname for posts (http://www.businesscardcritic.com/%categoryname%/%postname%/), as opposed to having the date like I used to.

Changed the tag pages titles from %tag% to %tag% Business Cards, so instead of a page that has the title “Innovative”, it now was “Innovative Business Cards”.

Updated the website title to “Business Card Critic – Your Business Card Review Website” instead of “BusinessCardCritic.com”.
