An open letter to my 200+ daily readers:
I write this blog to share info on my passion – Half Dome. I like to give my insights and experience after 40 hikes up. That’s the reason I wrote my book “One Best Hike: Yosemite’s Half Dome.” Believe me, the royalties are peanuts.
Google ranks websites on an algorithm that weighs “engagement” highly. So for me to write diatribes that are never shared, commented on, etc keeps this blog down. When someone dies I get 3,000 hits.
The point is that to get this website high enough to get visitors yall need to comment and show “activity.” I currently come up #6…behind the park service and wikipedia. I’ll never replace them. But my free app and YouTube (152K views) are #4 and 5 respectively….cool.
Please share your knowledge. To quote Burning Man: – “Participate – don’t spectate.”
