Hello Happy Site Owners! Welcome to the BlogAid Podcast for Dec 4th, 2012. I’m MaAnna and this is the week for the new WordPress 3.5 release.

This week’s tips include tips on claiming your expertise and stop comparing yourself to others in your niche, the skinny on the new Bing Webmaster Tools Guide, the double-edged sword of comment spam and what it does to your site rank, how to run your online empire from anywhere, and the most spot on list I’ve ever seen for getting more clients. Listen to the podcast now.
You may think an ugly theme is one of the standards I use to spot someone new to site ownership. It’s actually not even on my criteria list. But 15 other things are. Me and my clients can spot a newbie in seconds. It takes a trained eye to see all of the money a new site owner is leaving on the table. Take a quick scan of this list and then go review your site and see if you look like an amateur or a pro to your clients. I pull no punches here. This is a reality check about online success. So, if you’re easily offended about your online baby, maybe you should come back to this post when you’re ready to be rich.
