Building Back Links By Posting Blog Comments

Posting comments on blogs is one great way to get those back links everyone needs for their own site, which is why newbies are always asking me the best way to go about commenting.  First of all, remember that your comments must relate to the blog post itself and must never outright promote your website.  Take the following as an example.  If the blog in question deals with website designers in the greater New York area, you could share a personal experience you had when you hired a design team in that location.  Perhaps you could write about pricing.  What you should not say is, “Hire us for your website design needs,” because chances are the blog owner will view it as spam and your comment will be removed.  In turn, your site’s credibility will be flushed down the tubes.

The Benefits of Do-Follow Blogs

A blog’s do-follow tag lets the blog’s “link juice” pass on to the website commenting on it.  Do-follow blogs are vital to your site’s PR.  They assist in spreading that link power to other websites, which will bring in much needed traffic to your website.  The more links you have posted on blogs, the higher your site’s plausibility and exposure.  So whatever you post, make it relevant and make it worthwhile.

 

Searching on Google will help you get the most up-to-date list of do-follow blogs to keep for your search engine optimization needs.  However, do-follows are tags that attach to the website’s HTML.  And those tags can be switched to no-follow tags at any time.  Make sure your list is updated regularly so you know if the blog you want to comment on is a do or no-follow.

The best thing to do is to export your relevant do-follow blog list.  The list should be arranged by their PR (page rank).  Visit the blogs highest on the list and comment on those first.  Put your website’s name or the specific keyword you are using in place of your name.

Doing this accomplishes two things.  First, you are getting the word out about your website.  Second, you are increasing the rank of your page.  After you post a comment, don’t stop there is still more work to be done.  You need to visit on a regular basis and continue to make comments.  Joining a community of blogs not only benefits your website, but also gives you ideas you can put to use in all aspects of your life.

Getting Your Blog Noticed

Many people do not care to keep a diary for various reasons. Maybe someone got a hold of it once and poured through their deepest, darkest secrets. Or perhaps their lives are so dull that they feel there is no point in writing one. However, when blogs were created, people began to rethink their decision. They enjoyed the popularity so much that having other people read it became a pleasure, not an embarrassment. When a blog is written well and formed correctly, more and more visitors will start to follow your posts, and even post replies of their own. So if you want to have a great blog too, use the following tips.

The Right Title Says It All
Consider a blog title to be the face of your blog; it is the first thing people notice. We all know that first impressions are vital to success. This is why the right title can make or break the flow of traffic to your blog. Always remember that inserting your name or “my personal blog” in the title will kill your blog before it even gets off the ground.

Have a Layout With a “Wow” Factor
The layout is as equally important as the title. If you want to gain a large following, your layout must be simplistic and flawless. When readers see it, they need to be impressed. Don’t worry if you do not know how to make a layout, there are plenty of free templates to be found on the internet. Of course, you should choose one that is unique.

Good-Looking Pictures
Suffice it to say, people love looking at pictures. But if your photos aren’t that great to look at, you might not want to post any. Let’s be honest, nobody wants to see a picture of someone who is hideous. However, ugly pictures can be doctored with Photoshop. So if you have lovely pictures of yourself, put them on your blog because people like pretty.

Make It Interesting
Most blogs deal with everyday life, but that does not mean your blog should be boring. Far from it. Hook them in with a catchy first sentence and content that is interesting, fun, and succinct. It’s your blog, so the subject matter is completely up to you, but keep it engaging and entertaining. Lure them in and give them free stuff if you can. That is what it takes to attract readers.

Ignoring People Isn’t Nice
When someone comments on your post, take care to write a response. Now if you happen to have tons of comments regarding one blog post, it is perfectly okay to write a single response that thanks everyone for their interest. Whatever you write back, it should be friendly and respectful of other people’s opinions. Be sociable, don’t be a snob; people don’t like that.

Actually, Creativity is the Spice of Life
Even if you write about how you burned last nights dinner or the misadventures of your dog, be funny and on-point with your content. There is no one alive that does not appreciate a well-tuned sense of humor. So you might as well give the people what they want.

Depending on how you maintain your blog, it can be a huge hit or a big miss, which is why any blog should be informative, fun, and friendly. Just make sure you keep it real because no one appreciates a phony. It’s not cool to be something that your not. Ever. Don’t be afraid to show the world who you really are.

6 Ways to Get Traffic To Your Blog

Blogs can be entertaining, but only if other people are looking at them.  This is why you should follow the six ways to getting traffic to your blog to get people interested in your thoughts and comments.

1)  Twitter is the hot! So once you register on Twitter, include the URL of your blog, and become a follower of the fans who seem interested in your blog’s subject.  More times than not, people you follow will return the favor.  After you get a decent following, you can notify them about each new post.

2)  Digg is a wonderful way to advertise your blog.  Once you sign-up, you can post about your blog as often as you want, as long as each post in original.  People who like what they read on Digg will read your blog posts.

3)  YouTube is another great outlet that will get your blog noticed.  Make a short video clip and put it on YouTube for all of the world to see.  As time goes on, more people will look at it, and you can make your video available for viewing as long as you like.

4)  Forums related to your blog topic are places where you can get the word out about your website.  However, stay active on whatever forum you choose to join.  This means posting a comment several times per week.  The bigger presence you have on a forum, the more visitors you will have on your blog.

Start An Internet Business

5)  Answers.com as well as Yahoo Answers are both sites that give people answers to questions, and they are both also highly popular.  What you should do is look for a question that deals with the subject matter of your blog.  Once you find one, supply a thoughtful, thorough answer.  If you appear knowledgeable, people will flock to your blog.

6)  Facebook is arguably the most popular social networking site on the internet right now.  There you can post information, videos, and pictures for your “friends” to see, no matter what part of the world they live in.  Make sure you put up your blog’s link and communicate with others several times during the week to stay active.

 

Using Social Networks for Your Blogs

When it comes to marketing online there is no denying that social networking has become a necessity. Web 2.0 as we call it has made social networking an indispensable force. You can’t go anywhere in today’s world without hearing about social networking. News teams now use Twitter, and major businesses have all opened up profiles on Facebook, Myspace, and LinkedIn. These companies and the media wouldn’t open up social networking profiles and promote them if they weren’t receiving some type of return for their efforts.

Communications and exposure have become the true assets of today’s business world. Everyday millions of users go online and visit at least one social networking site, and many times several different social networks in one sitting. The cost of opening up profiles on these networks are free and very easy to handle. This is another reason why companies have been all for promoting themselves online through these mediums because it is free advertising.

The ultimate goal of social networking is for you to take some of the traffic that these sites receive and direct them to your sites. Since so many people use these types of mediums it should be something your online business, or offline for that matter, takes an initiative on. There is absolutely no costs for this advertising so I would definitely recommend you open a profile on these sites. You don’t have to do much to maintain them and you can get some great traffic from them. The best places to do so are Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook.
