I find it reassuring to be reminded of this. I imagine the Googlebot to be a busy little creature and I much prefer to leave him to do his work, rather than bombarding him with techniques imploring him to come and explore my blog. SEO is one aspect of blogging that I find a little tedious and do not talk about much here. Anyway there are zillions of blogs out there dealing with the subject so I will leave happily that up to them.
I will not just rehash what Darren has to say as you can listen to this for yourself - plus he says it so well and it is interesting to see the man and hear the voice behind Pro Blogger; with his wonderful Aussie accent. (he is from my home city of Melbourne).
Darren not only gives sensible advice but being a regular reader of Pro Blogger proves to me that he practices what he preaches very well. If I want authorative trustworthy information about the subject areas he covers then he is my first port of call.
