Friday Solopreneur News Roundup, 4/1/11

by Michele on April 1, 2011

No jokes here!  Every Friday, I publish a summary of some items I think are useful to solopreneurs.  If you’d like to see these right in your Facebook feed, click over to my page and like it.  I also use this post to remind you to take some time to recharge your batteries this weekend in whatever way works best for you.  As solopreneurs, we’re in big danger of working too much.  There’s so much to do, and we feel so personally connected to all of it that it’s easy to get sucked in.  As for me, I have NOTHING planned and that’s the way I like to spend a lot of weekends.  My weekdays are so heavily scheduled that I need a break from all that scheduling on the weekend.  Regardless of what I end up doing I’m usually happy if it doesn’t involve a schedule.

Missing keywords in your URL doesn’t ruin your SEO!  I was thrilled to read this article – one of the ideas in SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is that your keyword (what people are searching for when you hope they find you) should be in your domain name url.  If you got a great name with no keywords, don’t despair as this can be overcome.

Shocking but true!  Half a percent of Twitter users generate half the tweets!
