I recently submitted my blog to BlogDistributor to try them out. After waiting for the site to be reviewed, I got back a noticed saying to resubmit when I fix the issue of the fact my articles do not all display full posts and only display excerpts from the front page. The reasoning behind the decision is because it was not good for search engines. (I was also suggested to use themes from known unsafe free WordPress theme sites to download in the case that I was not able to code.)
Where is that little piece of information on the net? Seems fine and dandy to me to display excerpts. Some of the top blogs on SEO use excerpts to display posts and it is not hurting them one bit. Search Engine Journal does it, Joost de Valk does it at Yoast, and even the SEOmoz blog does it.
The whole work is within the site layout, and the content itself to build SEO. It does not really matter if your site displays full posts or excerpts because it is ALL read by the search engine. And because of social networking, and RSS, it makes it easy for people to bypass your layout and go straight to he content itself.
However, I have never had an issue with this with Pay Per Post or SocialSpark, so why is this a reason? I am not changing my site, so I am not sure why this is even an issue because I know it really does not matter.
So, I am wondering if people are not being given the right information or are we all still wrong?
What is the correct way to display your posts on your front page?
