Blog Trackbacks and Pingbacks

Lost in london Guide Trackback’s and Pingback’s.

To all Webmasters busy blogging. Our blogs support trackbacks & pingbacks. What exactly are they? Do they provide any benefit to my blog and SEO efforts? Both are very similar in providing notifications between 2 websites that have published content on a similar theme and quote each others work. Its a way of saying to the reader of the blog “you may also be interested in this”. To do this the webmaster or SEO professional of blog A, needs to ping a trackback to the webmaster of Blog B.

The difference between the 2 services are. Pingbacks do not publish a quote of the other websites blog. Trackbacks do.

Once you have activated trackbacks and pingbacks in your settings, add a link to our website in your blog and publish it. To get your link approved choose to link to us where the blog content is similar, allowing readers to follow posts on the same or similar subject. This improves the relations between the links and increases the chances of the link being clicked (and you getting improved SEO and traffic clicks as a result).

Avoid your blog from being identified as spam. Allow one link in your blog and a maximum of 2 at most. Anything more will flag your blog as spam and you wont get your links published. Of course no one wants that and it results in wasting your talents writing the content in the first place.

Happy blogging webmasters. We look forward to approving your trackbacks.

Goodge Street Guide

Goodge Street

is actually an underground station in London situated between Tottenham Court Road and Warren Street. It was opened back in 1907 and is one of the most unique stations in all of London because it still relies in lifts instead of escalators to bring passengers up and down from street level. Another thing worth noting is that although it is an extremely busy station, the flow of people using the station is extremely one-sided, with very few people entering the station when people are leaving, and vice versa. Goodge street is actually one of only eight London underground tube stations with a WW2 air raid shelter located underneath it.

 

For things to do in and around the area there is the world’s oldest museum, The British Museum, founded way back in 1753. Here there is a selection of historical artefacts, items of interest, exhibits, stands, collections, and much more on top of that, with the interior of the museum spanning 2 and a half miles. There is also Pollock’s toy museum dedicated to toys from a number of different eras, from a whole number of various cultures. There are Tin toys, china dolls, teddy bears, puppets, replicas of nurseries, and much more on top of that. This museum comes extremely highly recommended.

 

For travel concerns, Goodge Street is located in Zone 1 on the Northern line. Buses that serve this area include: 10, 14, 24, 29, 73, 134, 390, N5, N20, N29, N73, N253, N279.

Baker Street Guide

If You’re wondering why Baker Street

is ringing such a bell, it’s probably the fictional super detective Sherlock Holmes. Baker Street is located in the Marylebone district of Westminster in London, and is actually named after a builder known as William Baker, who actually laid this very street himself, back in the 18th century. The area was once an upper class residential area but is now home to mainly commercial premises instead.

If you’re looking for things to do, then no visit to Baker Street would be complete without a visit to the world famous Sherlock Holmes museum. This museum only opened in 1990, and is located within an 1815 style house similar to the fictional address of Sherlock Holmes, which was 221b house. There are wax figures, exhibits, Sherlock Holmes memorabilia, gifts, trinkets, and much more on top of that. If theatre is your cup of tea then head on down to the Open air theatre in regents park, which plays host to comedy, musicals, and theatrical performances all throughout the summer months (weather permitting of course). This theatre is the only one of its kind in all of the UK, so that alone shows you just how special and unique it actually is.

There are numerous buses running on a number of different routes, including 74, and 82. You easily find the entire list online by performing a basic search of the area.

Russell Square Guide

Russell Square

is a large square park located in the very heart of Bloomsbury, not too far away from The British Museum. This square was designed and created by Humphrey Repton back in 1806, especially for the fifth duke of Bedford. The duke’s statue is still situated in the gardens of this park to this very day. Russell square was actually created when several brand new streets were laid out by the duke on the site of the very gardens of his former home known as Bedford house. This large green space currently features its very own cafe and is overlooked by the upmarket Hotel Russell, and Senate House of the University of London. The main feature of Russell Square is that every year it is at the heart of the Bloomsbury Festival, held annually, featuring music, cultural events, and motivational and educational talks and speeches held in October.

 

Other attractions in and around Russell Square include Coram’s fields, a playground for children where adults may only enter if accompanied by their child. It covers five whole acres and features a menagerie, a playground, and a park. For something a little more intellectual however, why not visit the Wiener library, the oldest library in the world, dedicated to the studying of the Holocaust, its legacies, and its causes. This library also features exhibits looking at the many aspects of Nazi life back in the Second World War. It is a real eye opener that is fascinating and gut wrenching at the same time.

History and background.

The district originally sprang up on the outskirts of land belonging by the 19th century mansion called Holland House. Set in its own parkland it was mainly rural, until selling off some of its land to developers. The creation of  the Holland Park region took its name from that original house and grew into what was mostly a middle class development. What we have today, is an area of largely impressive Victorian town houses and something of an affluent area. An achievement that has Holland Park listed as one of the most expensive residential city districts in the world. Houses sometimes go on sale for amounts in excess of £1o million although the average house price is around £2 million (researched Dec 2014). During the 1940’s the original house in the park was devastated by bombing and although little more than ruin, it remains a feature in the park. Probably London’s most peaceful of city park lands. Holland Park Tube station was first opened on the 30 July 1900 and refurbished in the 1990’s.
