Dear Esoteric Library Author
still here, thanks to the support of our authors and readers alike. Our library
continues to grow on a daily basis and so does our traffic. With that I thought
it prudent to highlight some very important site news :
- Site name change.
immediate our site has been renamed to be Esoteric Library.
Following various comments from readers and authors, we believe that this
is likely to have a significantly beneficial impact on the size of our
audiences, ( and of course potential authors). And since our true
objective remains to inform on all things of an esoteric nature, I believe
it fortunate that this better reflects our desire as well.
If you visit our site you will notice (if you haven"t already) that the
name change has already been affected on the website.
Of course with this also a request. Whilst every attempt has been made to
change the name throughout the site, something might have slipped through.
We would really appreciate if you could let us know if you spot anything
that is not right.
- NEW SITE URL
To match the name change we have also decided to relocate our site to a
more suitable url name, which is now http://esoteric.2hav.net.
Of course no need to worry about potentially lost traffic as the old url
(through the use of some sophisticated permanent relocation technology)
will automatically relocate visitors (and search engines alike) to the new
urls automatically. And this will remain in force for as long is as
- NEW Features
- Comments Blog
I am happy to announce that we have successfully completed, and
implemented, our new Comments Blog. This means that visitors are now able
to comment on articles they read. This feature further allows readers to
view comments made by others to your specific article. Or they can simply
view all the comments made on all the articles. Readers can also comment
on comments if they like...
The benefits of this of course are various and include at least these :
1. Your articles
potentially get more exposure to both readers and search engines alike.
2. Readers can now have
conversations about your articles, sharing thoughts and inspirations.
3. The individual SEO
value of your articles could increase with every comment.
Of course to ensure the quality of our resource, all comments are reviewed by
human reviewers, however note that the reviews are done purely for editorial
guideline qualification, and negative and positive comments will be subjected
to the same approval or rejection criteria. Thus also note that negative
comments will NOT be filtered out for the sake of them being negative. Remember
all comments do add value to your articles both from a reader perspective, as
well as for improved SEO.
- Get html for an active link TOOL
Just a little tool we thought might prove of value to you when you are
submitting your articles. This tool is available on the submission page
(at the author bio section). Simply open it, and use it to turn your urls
(which you will be using in your bio), into an active link. Then copy the
code into your bio, and you have an active link, with your chosen link
anchor. (Something which is usually valuable for SEO purposes)
And for us the placement of an already active link code in the bio, instead
of just a URL, is very helpful and appreciated.
I think that covers the most important news for the past month. Please do keep
on submitting your articles. This is most certainly the best way for all of us
to get the maximum benefit from this resource.
And of course thanks for the support so far.
Wishing you all the best.
