Check your stats: Increasing Blog Readership

I always check out my blog statistics. There are several reasons why it’s good to have a look at these: it’s free, you get instant reader insight and you can see how readers are utilising your blog.

L’Etang says in Public Relations; Concepts, Practice and Critique “Ethics are a part of organizational identity and of course a vital part of the organization’s reputational stance. These are usually found in the Code of Ethics or Code of Practice.” In our case, these codes are known as the codes of conduct.

In Exploring Public Relations, Ralph Tench and Liz Yeomans identify these codes as being a safeguard for professions and their values and contribute to professionalisation and enhancing the reputation of public relations. In order to demonstrate this, we will look at selections from two different codes of conduct from the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) and the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR).
