How often have you ran across a blog post on building traffic only to glance up at your Alexa bar and see they have an Alexa rank of 200,000? Is that someone you should be follow blog traffic advice from? Okay, I know it could be just one of several blogs run by that person and that particular blog is still new but you know what I mean. I see it a lot and I have to wonder what they’re thinking. That’s just one example; we see the same thing with just about every niche we’re interested in.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying we should play it safe and worry about a little debate or even criticism. Just keep in mind that we lose a little credibility when we’re wrong but we lose a lot of credibility when we’re seen as impostures. I reject the “Fake it until you make it” notion. I’m finished lecturing.
What do you think? Am I being too critical?
