Bookmarked Feeling Sad For Those Who Gave Away Their Authorship To Medium | Kin Lane (Kin Lane)

I am glad I didnโ€™t go all in with Medium. I may have gotten more page views at the peak, but I think over time the long tail will be greater within my own domain. I am also feeling the same thing about Google lately. I used to cater to the SEO games, but after a couple of algorithm changes I havenโ€™t been able to keep up, and my numbers are half of what they used to be. I find my time is better spend focusing on learning about the interesting things across the API sector, and writing a steady stream of stories, than it is tweaking the knobs and dials of the SEO beast. Google has become an ad engine, and Iโ€™m not in the business of generating revenue from ads, so it really doesnโ€™t make sense for me to be playing that game full time.

Kin Lane reflects on his decision to persist on his own domain, rather than moving to Medium.
