Have you seen this little box on my sidebar? I hope so! This is a new and improved way that you can search my blog and actually find what you’re looking for!If you’ve searched on my blog in the past, you will know that my Google search just wasn’t doing the trick and I just couldn’t figure it out. It couldn’t find anything. Ever. I even reinstalled it and it still didn’t do what it was supposed to do which was help you find what you’re looking for.
When I heard Lijit.com share with us at the Savvy Blogging Summit, just what their search could do, I was hooked and couldn’t sign up fast enough for this FREE service! Just what grabbed my attention?
- Lijit allows your readers to search not only your blog, but anywhere on the web you can be found. Yep, that means Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Digg, del.icio.us, YouTube- other blogs that you write for, you can create your own search engine by telling Lijit where to look.
- Lijit also keeps stats for you. Want to know what your readers are searching for? Lijit will let you know. As a blogger this is very helpful. If you’re here looking for information about traveling to Atlanta and I haven’t written any posts on that topic, but we’ve been there, I know to get busy because there is an interest. Of course I want to write about what interests you.
- You can earn revenue when you choose to enable Lijit ads- but you are not obligated to do so.
- Lijit is FREE, no need to pay to have an alternative to Google.
There you have it, why I chose to switch from Google search to Lijit. If you’re interested in learning more, you can visit www.lijit.com and find out if Lijit is for you. In the meantime, I hope you do take advantage of my new search feature if you’re looking for something specific on my blog- I know it’s been incredibly beneficial for me!
So, what do you think? Interested in giving Lijit a try?
