Cutcompcosts Awarded Top 25 Workers Comp Blogs Again for 2018


Cutcompcosts Repeats As Top 25 Workers Comp Blog In 2018

After Cutcompcosts repeated as Best’s Recommended Insurance Advisors, we just discovered that Workerscompensation.com awarded us with the Top 25 Workers Comp Blogs designation.  We also were awarded the distinction in 2017.

In fact, we just received the 10 Year Badge for Recommended Insurance Advisors or Experts by Best’s Insurance Ratings.   By the way, we are not bragging whatsoever.   We just wanted to let our new and devout blog, article, and newsletter readers know that they are not reading or receiving spammy disguised advertising information.

We do need to add our 2018 Best’s Recommend Insurance Experts Badges very soon.

Please note that you see no ads in any of the articles, archives, or newsletters.   Also, no annoying pop-ups were ever allowed.   Many Google or SERP experts wanted us to monetize the blog <yuck>.   I told them – no way – in no uncertain terms.

We have been offered thousands to list adverts on our blog and website.  To that I said – that does not follow the vision statement for the website at all – so thanks, but no thanks.

I used to write articles for Google rankings, but no longer do I even attempt to do that.  Google has somehow figured out when you just write and not worry about how the article will rank – will be more beneficial  than writing an article to get it placed on the first page of the Google organic rankings.

A few of our posts have gone viral over the last few weeks.   Some of the viral posts were from 10 years ago.   I use the term viral very loosely.  A very specific blog expects only so much traffic.   J&L is still trying to match the 100,000 daily views from 2013.   That figure was not an anomaly.

I have written 99.9% of the articles that you see before you.   Original content is better than paying someone to write it and then use my name on it.  A few competitors pay for articles.   We do not.  We will not.

One question I receive often is where do I get the ideas for writing articles or for presentations/webinars?   Actually,  a good article exists already on the blank page.  I am just filling in the required words.   Many come from the comments I hear at conferences, meetings, talking with business allies,  and so forth.

The only two artificial improvements I have made to the blog is to hire a cleanup person for the last two years to link articles, clean up the spacing, add pictures, fix the copyright info, etc.   The other is the frustrating, but good Grammarly.   I now run it on every article before publishing them.  The $135 per year was worth it (I think).   Yes, I broke down and bought the Pro Version.

If you think of any subjects – Workers Compensation centered – that need to be written on, please email me or use the Contact page on the website.

In closing, we do not sell any of our data to any company at any time.  Yes, we do use Google tracking, but that only for knowing the number of hits we receive and what the person was searching for in the website.   We have chosen not to track individual site visits.  That sounds creepy and it is creepy.

Once again, a BIG THANKS for reading the articles and newsletter over the last 11 years.   Hopefully, for the next 11 years, there will be a Cutcompcosts to receive good technical Workers ‘ Compensation information.

  1. What i do not realize is in fact how you are no longer actually much more smartly-favored than you may be now. You are very intelligent. You understand thus considerably on the subject of this matter, made me individually believe it from a lot of numerous angles.
