Welcome to The Blog Report

I'm so glad you stopped by and hope you find this blog an interesting read. I've been blogging since April of 2006, currently the author of six public and two private blogs. In the beginning I knew absolutely nothing about blogging. Over the years through trial and error, frustration and elation, and a few tears I've learned a lot. However, the learning process when it comes to blogging continues to evolve. Here you will find a hodge podge of my blogging experiences, useful codes and how-tos, sprinkled liberally with my opinions. Enjoy!

Bad Neighbourhood Link Detection Tool

I've been doing a lot of blog analysis lately.  I found this handy tool for helping to detect if you are linked to any bad neighbourhoods via text links.  It's called the Bad Neighbourhood Link Detection Tool.  Hovering over the icons beside the analyzed links will tell you what that icon means.  If you are a blogger expect to see the blog spam icon to appear which they said is normal.  If you get a caution symbol for a link it is an indication of a possible link to a bad neighbourhood.  However, it will tell you the link and why it was flagged.  On my cooking blog a link using 'food porn' was flagged which in the foodie world is a normal term but not so for search engines, I guess.  Removing any confirmed bad neighbourhood links is a good idea and it likely isn't a bad idea to scan your blog from time to time just in case.

That's interesting - I never gave much thought to this. I do have a number of links on my site, but I periodically check in on these and I think that they are "good neighbors" for the most part.
