Katherine, great article! It is my belief that in the very near future, (if not already) keyword and key phrases placed in content, while important, will no longer be the gold standard in optimizing content, it will have more to do with your Social Media Influence. Who is sharing, retweeting, liking, your content.
So, for people just starting in Social Media, having 100,000 followers doesnt mean much if these people are not engaged in what you are sharing.
On your point above, "Market Your Blog Online", it is wise to post on "influentional blogs" and retweet "influental people. In the long and short, it will help your information become more "viral" in the Social Media world.
There are more and more tools available to research peoples Social Media Influence (Social Score), so find people in your niche with a high influence and start sharing!
i.e. I liked your post so much we shared it on our FB Page :) http://www.facebook.com/seoalien
Thanks for allowing me to share and keep sharing your great tips!

Ron, I like your site! Definitely a solid beginning to publishing content online.
As it stands right now, the link to your blog will come up more often in Google SE results than your website. If you are making regular posts, it will be more beneficial to find a way to host your blog on your website in order to drive more traffic there. Alternatively, you could link your website from your blog to redirect traffic from your blog to your website.
However, it might be best to find a way to host both from the same domain.
If you are looking for a good solution to building a website with a blog, Wordpress is a good hosting platform for simple programming and blog hosting all in one. Very easy to learn! I would highly recommend re-building your site through Wordpress while it is still new, then transferring your content over.

Excellent aticle, thank you. I have a link on my home page to my blog on blogspot.com instead of having my blog on my home page. Will that be good enough for Google to recognize I have a blog?
Thank you in advance. http://www.ronaldteejohnson.com
