How To Use LeoGlossary

in LeoFinance2 months ago

A lot of work has gone into #leoglossary. We are progressing ahead with a lot of interesting stuff taking place. For right now, we will stick to some of the basics since it is essential people latch onto this.

To start, for those unaware, we should explain what Leoglossary is.

This is a database of financial, crypto, and investing terms. We are building something similar to Investopedia. It is a great addition to Hive and Leofinance since it provides a treasure trove of information. For the moment, we are focusing upon the glossary idea, posting definition and concepts relating to these areas.

One additional area we are focusing upon is Splinterlands. We have a section called SplinterGlossary which has over 120 fully defined terms and concepts pertaining to the game. There are still more being added so we can expect it will cross 200 in a few weeks.

This is headed by @gadrian and you can see the latest update here.

The Purpose Of LeoGlossary

Having a decentralized database of applicable terms to Leofinance is targeting a few different areas. This is the reason why the project was undertaken. We hope that the long-term results will assist Leofinance in becoming something we all envision it to be.

Information Center

The first goal is to build a database that, over time, fills into a valuable information source. People are always looking for different content and Leofinance has the opportunity to get to that point.

Links To Add To Articles

As we will show, it is easy to find links to add to articles written that will aid in the search engines as well as providing more content. People who are truly interested in subjects will often click on links in articles for more information.

We are working hard to add to the glossaries for the time being so that the content keeps growing in value. The first phase is to get things up there so the links are established and start being indexed. We will be adding depth as we go.

Help With Search Engines

A lot goes into search engine ranking. While many try to gain the system, at the end of the day, it always comes down to the information being provided. From what we can see, some of the variables are type of content, number of external links, internal links, and lack of orphan pages.

So far, this is the number of posts that went up:

As we can see, there are 1,139 post, each which is an individual term or concept. Each page is linked to others so none of them are orphans. All are being set up in a way where there is a flow to the information. This is what the search engines like.

How To Use It

The easiest way to use LeoGlossary is through the search engines.

A fair bit of the information is indexed, even by Google. This will help to find the information without having to search through the different sections.

The best way to go about this is to enter "leoglossary" followed by the term you are seeking. Thus, if we are looking for "Polycub", this is what it would look like.

If we do the same thing for "Blockchain" this is what we get:

One thing to keep in mind, sometimes the terms show up under a different front end. Hive.blog tends to get search engine preference for a variety of reasons. Therefore, some searches might show the Leoglossary result under that. Simply click on the link, go to Hive.blog and replace that in the url with leofinance.io/(the rest of the title) and you will get the Leofinance version.

Then link the keyword in your article to the url and provide another internal (or external if non-Hive blog) link to the LeoGlossary pages.

Each article that has a link in it helps. We want to try to reduce the number of orphan pages on Leofinance. This can happen especially with that created through a front end like Peakd that is tagged with Leo/leofinance. These pages can show up in the url but are nowhere to be found in terms of indexing.

A simple link to a page that Google is aware of will get the spider going to it.

The key is to get many people involved. This is one of the reasons why LeoGlossary was started. It is a way to provide people with hundreds of links on keywords that are common on Leofinance.

As an aside, do not vote on the posts. The rewards are set to decline, which does not show up on Leofinance.

Thanks for your help with this.

Oh, that is a nice way to get the terms. I generally just go through the table of contents and search for the term.

Yep, Task gave both of us a great idea here! And it might help with the search engine too if they see the keywords being searched for and connected to leoglossary. Maybe we should add leofinance to the keywords too, to get directly the leofinance posts instead of hive.blog.

Can't hurt. I am not sure that is how Google works but if enough different IPs are accessing some of the keywords, this will help a bit.

There are a few different lists forming and not all are on the main menu. That is why I mentioned this. If it is under bankglossary, for example, some might not know to look there.

Plus the clicks from google cannot hurt either.

Like Wikipedia, that site always gets a high ranking, probably the internal links help to rank in the search engines.

I was this close to leaving a comment under someone’s post asking how they use it. Thanks for this. I have to admit though, I always thought it was a markdown people used so that by default, finance words or words of the glossary in your post were identified by the LeoFinance front end and linked in your article.

The easiest way to search the word on google (since that could help them realize we exist) and then, if there, get the Leofinance link, and tie it into your article.

Use the format where the [text from post] and the (web url).

I love the fact that so many amazing projects are on going on Leofinance at the same time. They are also managed and headed by competent personnel, this is why everything is moving rapidly at the same time.

The Leoglossary is a wonderful idea and it'll serve like a resource bank or dictionary of words. In the same way, it will also help reduce articles that are ophan pages and this will help the SEO in terms of indexing.

This is a wonderful piece

Then how come your posts do not have a single keyword linked in them?

Great initiative

Certainly, all that information is a treasure, and it will also help LeoFinance to continue growing as a highly requested project in terms of Cryptocurrencies.

This is truly a nice project. I will definitely explore further. Thanks for sharing!

Real chads using Google and here I am searching for terms with CTRL+F

Definitely want to use LeoGlossary with my shorter-form blog posts!

Wow. I see leoglossary is experiencing progress with time. I say well done to you, @taskmaster4450le and the others behind the initiative. And now, it is even easier to get information by just doing the google search. One key thing I like about each element is that they are all interlinked like you said.

Way to go, champ!
