Some time ago I got an email from a person at an SEO agency who was trying to do some content marketing and link building.  It said:

We have rounded up 55 must-know facts that you can share to your readers. Would you like to see it?

I thought about it for a moment and responded:

Thanks for your kind offer. Our readers, like most people, are really busy and overloaded with information. I don’t think they want or need 55 new facts. It would probably cause them to feel even more stressed and overwhelmed than they already feel. Instead of 55 facts, they would probably be better served with 3 super-important facts they can focus on so they can ignore the rest.

What do you think?  Agree or disagree? (Seriously, I’d like to know what you think. post a comment)

January is Goals Month at OurChurch.Com. Our focus all month is on helping you set good goals for your website, SEO and online communication.

One of the most overlooked benefits of goal-setting is the way goals help us focus on what’s really important.  Focusing on what’s really important saves time and reduces stress.

If you haven’t set goals for 2020 yet, it’s still not too late.

If you’re telling yourself, “I’m too busy. I don’t have time to set goals,” well…


It’s not true.  The truth is…

You don’t have time NOT to set goals. 

And if one of your goals this year by bringing more visitors to your website and more people to your church, school, ministry or business this year, let’s talk about how our Christian and church SEO services can help you reach that goal.

    • Hi Paul,

      I’m not an “SEO Guy”, so to speak. So I probably would not want 55 facts about SEO. Now, if you gave me that many facts about a subject that I’m extremely passionate about, I might want them. But then, I would break them down into the top “x” number that I could focus on and use to my advantage.

      In other words, I’d probably want to start with a large “pool of options” so that I could pick and choose what works best for my particular situation. Generally speaking, though, I’ve found that too many options is NOT good for most people. You’re probably familiar with the saying that “a confused mind often chooses to do nothing”.

      As far as setting goals, I’m USUALLY disciplined. I’ve done a good job setting them. Now, I just have to remain consistent in pursuing them. By the way, good job on the article. Be blessed and have a GOD day!
