Real blogging is the way to go if you want the most out of the search engines for each of your sites, but be prepared for the work which is involved.

Even as commercial software, WordPress would be amazing. It is easy to install and easy to use. But you are almost certainly going to want your site to have its own look and when you take a look at a theme for the first time – especially if you are not overly familiar with PHP and CSS – what you see may make no sense at all.

CSS separates content from design making your sites easier to maintain, faster loading and more search-engine friendly. And if you build basic templates for the layouts you commonly use, just open one up for every new page or site and part of your work is already done.

Using tables to code text-based TGP’s undermines a lot of the SEO potential edge these otherwise content-rich sites might have, by leaving them with a high code to content ratio. And if a little clever CSS isn’t used, they can also suffer from that familiar lag before the whole page pops into view. The advantages of going table-free are not as great for thumb-preview TGP’s, but as this article shows, the code for even a simple site can be reduced by 25%.

The key to making changes to WordPress themes is to work methodically. First identify the relevant HTML; second identify all the CSS which relates to it; and third, understand what the CSS is actually doing.

We all recognize that the online adult entertainment industry is fast-changing and becoming increasingly competitive. But what are you doing about it? Are you constantly developing your sites to reflect the latest changes in the industry, or do you just tweak now and again when you happen to spot something which looks interesting on another site or a message board? Are you actively developing your own skills and knowledge, or assuming you will pick up all you need as you go along? And the critical question: do you really want to succeed?
