I solicited the help of ContentRobot, who responded to my Craigslist request for blog help. Thank you CraigsList! They were great. Fast, professional, capable, knowledgeable. And unlike many, many designers and developers I've worked with in my career...they got it almost entirely right the first time! It's one of thos magic times where things click!
Our first blog launched on TypePad, which is a great platform. But we heard good things about WordPress and its plugins, so I thought this would be a good learning experience to put our Bazaarvoice blog there.
My objectives were to move the blog to WordPress, move it to bazaarblog.com domain, improve search engine optimization, add RSS feeds, FeedBlitz subscription, search, categories, archives, tagging capability, authorship credit (we have three authors), post summaries, and put it all in a new design that fits in but is not a clone of our corporate site.
Here is our blog before:
Occasionally I run across great products, services and companies worthy of proactive word of mouth. ContentRobot is such a company. I'm very pleased with the outcome. What do you think?
