Hi guys! My name is Tim Leland and I have worked as a software developer for 12 years.In my free time, I like to work on side projects to learn new programming languages and solve my technical problems. Over the years I have created several web applications and extensions.Two of my most popular are Weather Extension (209,000 active users) and T.LY URL Shortener (6+ million short URLs). Weather Extension is described as the best way to check forecasts directly in your browser.Weatherextension.com domain review (Source: Ahrefs) Contents1 What is your story and how did you come up with the idea?2 Since launch, what has worked to attract more organic traffic?3 Did you learn anything particularly useful or beneficial?4 Can you say more about your content strategy?5 Do you still have challenges to overcome C级执行名单 today?6 What is your SEO technical stack?7 What were the most influential books, podcasts or other resources?8 Where can we go to find out more about you?What is your story and how did you come up with the idea? I created Weather Extension to scratch my own itch.I was tired of going to other ad-filled weather sites to check the forecast. I decided to build my extension to quickly check the weather. I realized that the mobile app stores were full of weather apps, but the Chrome web store lacked high-quality weather apps.Most existing weather extensions were malicious.I also wanted to use the Dark Sky Weather API which is my favorite weather app for my iPhone.The extension's growth was slow at first. Just a few friends and family.My big break came when I contacted Lifehacker to see if they would share the extension. I sent a cold email to an author who recently wrote about another Chrome extension. I never heard anything until the day my server went down.I found it in a Lifehacker article on my extension!
