Well, my observations from the time I joined were that my posts were searchable by Google and did, in fact, appear in the search engines. When they added tags to the Forum Topics, this increased the chances of ranking highly.
So yes, do be aware that what you say may stick around for years to come. But that’s a good thing, if you want it to be. If you don’t, then just self edit what you write and all will be okey, dokey, lol!
The take-away learning opportunity we have here, however, is that SME has truly created the new model for how to increase your blogs reach and search engine rankings by creating a venue where users will generate high-ranking pages for you. I think what they’ve done here is ingenious, comparable only to what Ken Evoy has always taught in his Five Pillars Program through his Site Build It / Site Sell It website training.
Kudos to SME for bringing us all here to their, and now our, non-stop e-learning extravaganze site!
