Okay, so I am not the first one to say the phrase, there are millions of hits online with this heading.

What if every problem that you found online had a simple resolution by just Googling for it.

However, sometimes you will spend a fairly good amount of time searching and will only reach a conclusion through trial and error.

Here’s something that you could do next time you are faced with a challenge like that.

Think about the subject of the problem you are researching and give it a name.  For example, if you cannot find a good specialized search engine, you could think about the name ‘alternatesearches’. If you are looking for a good blog directory that provides statistics, you can think about the name ‘blogdirectoryhelp’.

Jot your ideas, links, and references until you resolve the problem.  One of the best places is an unposted blog entry.  You can even add screenshots of the places you visit, the workarounds, etc.

Once you have your resolution, you can decide if one of your existing blogs could be a place for it or if you would like to create a brand new blog.

Once you are ready, post your resolution. You will have achieved two objectives:

1) Creating an engaging, content-rich post that will be greatly favored by search engines.

2) Provide a reminder for you so that you can go back and redo the process you followed in order to resolve the problem. It is great to use when a friend has a similar problem and you just know the name of the blog you created by heart.

Here is an example of a blog in our network that turns problems into opportunities.
