The No-Blogging Experiment Is Over
..find out what happens to your site when you don't blog!..

Have you ever wanted to stop blogging or thought that it was just a waste of time? Well, I've taken one for the team to see what happens your site when you stop blogging. I didn't post any new content to the site for 251 days and then took stock on #independeceday to see how no blogging impacted site traffic, rankings and business.

You can read the full post here: http://robertryan.ie/the-no-blogging-experiment-is-over/

They key results from the experiment are:
Site Traffic: Down 32%
Organic Traffic: Down 42%
Contact Page Views: Down 15%
Conversions: Down 28%
Rankings: Drop from 1st to 6th for main keyword

This experiment flies in the face of everything I tell clients and that I've learned from blog heroes like +Mike Allton, +martin shervington, +Dustin W. Stout, +Mark Traphagen, +Wade Harman & co but wanted to see, first hand, if not blogging would impact things..

And, unsurprisingly, it did.
You can read the full post here: http://robertryan.ie/the-no-blogging-experiment-is-over/

So, now that this experiment has ended it's time for another to start as the march to top of the rankings and to recoup the lost traffic begins.. More on that as it unfolds!

Have you ever wanted to stop blogging? After not blogging for 251 days, and seeing how it has impacted the site, I'm doubling down on my beating of the drum about blogging but would love to hear your thoughts so do chime in!

If you have a business, and you have a website, you should have a blog section which gets new, relevant content added to it at least once a week, blogging > not blogging.

“We see micro-influencers get an average of two-to-five times more organic engagement per Instagram post, compared to those with more than 100,000 followers,” said Gonzalez. “Their content will be organically performing better on the platform due to the inherent superior engagement.”

Brands that are looking for conversion rather than awareness on Instagram should collaborate with “micro-influencers.”

I often hang from the pull up bars in between lifting sets.

"Hanging from a pullup bar offers a long list of benefits, he says. For one, it decompresses your spine which decreases your risk of back injury and helps correct your posture."

“That makes them great to do in-between or after compressive exercises like sitting, running, squatting, or deadlifting,” he explains.

Men’s Health Fitness Director BJ Gaddour wants you to just hang around at the gym. Hanging from a pullup bar offers a long list of benefits, he says. For one, it decompresses your spine which decreases your risk of back injury and helps correct your posture. “That makes them great to do in-between or after compressive exercises like sitting, running, squatting, or deadlifting,” he explains.

I also often hang from the pullup bar, more to help stretch out the lats and the shoulders.  I used to get the gears from other members on this until they tried it.

I have spent a couple months volunteering at a place called Body Mechanics that uses PT's with great knowledge in biomechanics to help perfect the body mechanics in humans. I have learned so much as I am an aspiring Physical Therapist and now I know the difference between lazy PT's and aggressive smart ones.
