Bloggers Night Before Christmas
‘Twas the Night Before #Christmas and ‘round my web plot
Not a spider was crawling, not even a spam-bot
Daily postings were hung on my blog page with care
In the dim hope that viral visitors soon would be there.
The RSS feed sat proudly, all orange and white
With the hope that max subscribers would be coming tonight
Outsourcers were working very hard for this day
While the virtual assistants tweeted the night away.
Then from the comment section there arose such a clatter
It seemed that a Troll had arrived, all in a lather
“Your Blog, it is stupid, “he said in a snit
“Your prose, it is weak, you are a dumb sh** ”
Commentluv still gave the troll a shiny do-follow link
This I deleted as quick as an eye it could blink
Away from my homepage I flew with a flitter
The article you see; I simply forgot to Twitter
Then it began, this great Christmas Miracle
I will tell you the story, though it may sound satirical
Though with SEO I have been quite actively frugal
On this cool Christmas day I was found by the great Saint of Google.
The giant behemoth that no mere Bing could dethrone
I knew in a moment, to page one my post it had flown
Quick a pingback his heralds arrived, defying FaceBook claims,
He whistled and shouted and podcast their names!
“Now Images, Now Instant! Now Maps and Now Finance!
On, Docs! On Earth! On, Voice and on Adsense!
To the top of the list, keywords above all
Now dash away, dash away, dash away all
And then in the URL I heard a big clink
It was the sound of a slug being changed in a permalink
My traffic was sketchy, but showing a rise
I had lightning fast load speed and all that implies.
Google’s fiber how it twinkled, the homepage so merry
The background was green, the font it was Cherry
Images danced on screen, pixels lined in a row
While wiki returned a search on Henry David Thoreau.
The Tweets were ‘a flowing and so were the Stumbles
Comments were coming and none of them grumbles.
My eBook was written, and linked on the page
My site I now felt, would soon be the rage.
Google sprang to his servers, his apps he did call
All ’round the ‘net his shiny spiders did crawl
His pixels they faded as he vanished from sight
“Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!”
I hope you all enjoyed this. In a Christmas miracle: this is one of two posts for the day. Check back later to see the SSS special Christmas link post.To Your "Internet Lifestyle",
