It’s no longer a good idea to cross-post the full content of anything to multiple sites — the latest Google search algorithm penalizes that kind of behavior.

Hmm, I didn’t realise that, although you can see the logic behind it. Annoying.

I miss the idea of just having your own personal website where you just post all your stuff, instead of having to juggle it around Facebook and Twitter and Goodreads and whatever. Or at least, I do actually quite like some of the social networks, it’s coordinating it all which is a pain: even more so if Google is going to start penalising you for it. Ho hum.
