Jewish Humor Central is a blog to start your day with news of the Jewish world that's likely to produce a knowing smile and some Yiddishe nachas. It's also a collection of sources of Jewish humor--anything that brings a grin, chuckle, laugh, guffaw, or just a warm feeling to readers. Our posts include jokes, satire, books, music, films, videos, food, Unbelievable But True, and In the News. Some are new, and some are classics. We post every morning, Sunday through Friday. Enjoy!
My Aba, Al Kustanowitz (pictured left with my nephew Gil), started his blog, Jewish Humor Central, several months ago, and has since become the model blogger: he gives credit to his sources, adds people to his blogroll, posts regularly (a little too regularly, if you ask me - setting an impossible bar for posting by those of us who aren't retired), and tries to vary the content of his posts, adding photos and videos where possible. He takes the work of humor very, very seriously: he pulls from sources ranging from the Wall Street Journal to Voz Is Neias,
And lately, he's taken to asking me lots of questions about stats, traffic, and the whys and wherefores of SEO. As I've been saying, sometimes the tree doesn't fall far from the apple. We both laughed a lot at this concept, until an actual tree fell on my parents' house in New Jersey slightly before Pesach. (Ah, comedy!)
So here's a message from "Apple Kustanowitz," asking for your help with a Father's Day gift for "Tree Kustanowitz." Since my father's notoriously difficult to buy for (especially since his birthday was just in May), I'm asking your help to give him the one thing that I can actually give him by tapping into my network: an increase in web traffic or an explanation of how search rankings work.
Here's how you can help:
1) Add Jewish Humor Central to your blogrolls.
2) Recommend Jewish Humor Central to a friend.
3) Sign up for the Jewish Humor Central Feedburner feed.
4) Link to Jewish Humor Central in a blog post.
5) Share a link from Jewish Humor Central on Facebook or Twitter, or "Facebook Like" Jewish Humor Central.
6) If you have a favorite SEO trick to share, or just want to wish my father a Happy Father's Day, email Al Kustanowitz at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If we can give him a significant boost in traffic today, we'll give him the best present ever. (Yes, the blog-nerdiness runs in my family.) Thanks for your help!
