I've worn my Fitbit Flex every day for over a year, have never shared any stats (who cares), but I was amazed to find out I walked 108 km this past week (averaging 17 km per day!).

My average number of steps was 23,000 a day, while usually I manage to just hit my 10,000 goal most days.

I'm travelling and we're walking around a lot each day, that's why. :-)

I love exploring new places on foot. And getting/staying fit at the same time!

It's basic. But it's clear, fresh and modern. And I like it. What to you think?
 
Finally: A fresh new look for my 7-year-old website. 
WordPress, new colours, and of course: mobile-friendly.

Old/outdated blog posts & their SEO value

I'm putting the finishing touches on my new website but am not sure what to do with my old blog posts. Most of those posts are from 2008 through to 2012. Not necessarily stuff I want to draw people's attention to any more, but I'm sure these pages have been and will remain good for my site's SEO. So I don't want to get rid of them, but am thinking of putting them in an "archived" directory (with 301 links from their old URLs, of course). Does that make sense? What would you do (or have you done if you've been in this situation)?

Dancing, music-playing broccoli??  
That's what I thought when I saw the Google Doodle today. 
A mouse-over revealed it's St Patrick's Day. Ah, they're shamrock. 
Happy St Patrick's Day to everyone with Irish blood.

Haha. Someone just found my website by searching for "the website that writes for you". My site must have disappointed. It doesn't do that.

Google Alerts - does it work properly?

Who uses Google Alerts? Does it work well for you? One of the alerts I have is for my own name. I hardly ever get an alert, but I got one now. Google told me about my own Google+ update yesterday. Sure, that has my name on it, but why would Google suddenly decide to alert me about my own Google+ updates? It wasn't a particularly popular update or anything. Mistake? Or is Google suddenly indexing Google+ updates better? Any thoughts?

Neil Patel is a great SEO expert. Love his stuff.

Technical SEO question: Is having responsive web design the only way sites will pass Google's mobile-friendliness test? Or are there other ways to make existing WordPress websites pass the "mobile viewport" part of the test?

New Google Ranking Signal: Mobile-Friendliness

Is your website mobile-friendly? Google has just announced this will become a ranking signal from April 21st. (I'm glad my new, responsive website will be up before then.)
 
Two important #WebmasterNews announcements today:
1. Starting April 21, we will be expanding our use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal, meaning more #mobilefriendly sites in search results.
2. Starting today, we will begin to use information from indexed apps as a factor in ranking for signed-in users who have the app installed.
