Workers Comp Writers Block Not A Fun Time
Having Workers Comp writers block for the first time in 11 years ended with this article. The last three weeks contained the longest workers comp writers block for me.
The comment on writing into a funnel means that if I covered a subject in 2008 and now write about it again, the Google search algorithm penalizes duplication.
Matt Cutts, the Google spam guru rep says Google does not penalize duplication. However, if you write two articles on the same subject, each are partially devalued as Google makes a choice on which article gets the juice and ranking.
Of course Google is trying to remove spammers from their rankings. No blame goes to Google.
The last article on the .85 Combined Ratio announced at the NCCI Virginia Conference created quite a bit of buzz. In a roundabout way, Workers Comp carriers consider the market to be potentially profitable.
I began the blog to publish articles on workers comp premium audit and reserves. The writing funnel discourages me from continuing to write on those two subjects.
Many workers comp authors began damning the system a few years ago to get attention. It seems they are still at it today. We decided a few years ago to stop publishing articles that bash one facet or group of people in the Workers Comp business. I just finished reading an article of that sort.
Is it me or has there been way too many articles on opioids (not counting research WCRI, NCCI, etc.)?
One very positive note entails the updating and improvement of all 1,672 articles. Our web consultant contractor works tirelessly to improve the look (graphics, text spacing, and Google ranking) of the blog and website. I have spent 30 – 40 hours in the last two months reviewing and upgrading some of the text.
I begrudgingly removed 30 -40 articles which provided no knowledge advancement in the area of Workers Compensation.
1,672 articles now exist in this blog. Feel free to search them at the box on the top right of the screen.
PS I cannot call it writer’s or writers’ block as the apostrophes in Titles make the HTML go crazy.
