Blog Promotion Tip – Using Links

Posted by beccablogger on February 9, 2009

Links are an important part of SEO and as such, they are very important to getting your blog out there on the web to be searched for by other people looking for your content.   Not only do links help you with your SEO, they are a good networking tool between yourself and other bloggers.   That is why, there are two very important things to remember when creating and maintaining your blog:

Your Blogroll:  Your blogroll links your viewers to your favorite blogs.  Often if you add a blog to a blogroll, the blogger will investigate and, if they like your blog they will add you to their blogrol.  This is a good and common way to get your blog infront of other blog readers.

Links and Trackbacks: To re-itterate, links are very useful for your SEO.  So, if you are posting about this cool article you read, link to the article directly.  If that article happens to be in someone elses blog, the blogger will be sure to notice it and appreciate your post that linked to them.  They may even offer you a link in return, but either way, this is a good tap on the shoulder for other bloggers out there.

To explain the importance of linking further, I would like to quote a google explanation of how this works:

The best way to ensure Google finds your site, is for your pages to be linked from lots of pages on other sites. Google’s robots jump from page to page on the Web via hyperlinks, so the more sites that link to you, the more likely it is that we’ll find you quickly.

Another good way to get incoming links to your site is to research.  Find blogs or websites with content relevant to yours.  Most site and blog owners have a section allowing you to contact them.  Send these site owners a personal email requesting a link.  Do not use a generic letter written to all sites that you find.  These will be noticed right away and quickly discarded.  Find ways to personalize it and explain why you feel it would benefit their site as well as your own.

Directories are also a good source of incoming links.  Social bookmarking sites such as technorati, del.lic.ous and others all offer catagorized directories.  Visit these sites to discover what you need to do to get your site listed.  It is a lot of work, but it will be worth it.

Another way to add links: Lists.  Lists of your top <insertwhateverhere> are great ways to  promote your blog and create links.  People love these lists, and they get dugg all the time.

In SEO remember that both outbound and inbound links are considered when indexing your site.  Use both wisely, and if possible incorporate them into eachother to make an interesting cohesive site, that crawlers will work well with.

Blog Promotion Tip – Guest Posting

Posted by beccablogger on February 9, 2009

What is Guest Posting? Guest posting is a great form of blogger networking by posting an article of your own, on somebody elses  blog.  Occasionally bloggers will advertise that they are looking for guest posters, so keep an eye out.  If not, find a blog you like and think your article subjects would go well in.  Write to the blog owner and ask if they are accepting guest-posting.

Guest posting is a great way to show your content to a new reader base.   Since many blogs which have guest posting allow you to link back to your own blog, you are likely to generate lots of new readers and subscriptions if your articles go over well.

Two very important things to keep in mind when guest posting.  Write for the other blogs fan-base.  If your articles don’t mesh well with the current content on that blog, do you think anyone will read it? No they will skip right over it, and you might annoy the person who let you guest post as well.

Don’t attempt to guest write articles out of your blogs element.  You want to draw people to your blog through your guest post.  If you  guest post a  great article on a new online game, but your blog is about your art collection, people will be dissapointed when they go to your blog and not come back.

Remember good etiquette! Do not spam articles to a variety of blogs hoping someone will guest post it for you.  This is rude, and will produce the opposite effect of what your seeking.  Write a short, nice letter to the blog owner explaining why you want to guest post, and the idea you want to guest post about.  Include any relevant links to your blog so they have the chance to see your writing style and reader base.

If a blog does let you geust post, it is always nice to offer a link back to them.  Even if it is a short post in your own blog to the effect of “Check out my guest post at susiquesblog.” This way, the other blog owner can gain some readers of their own.

The benefits of allowing people to guest post on your blog.  Some people think, ‘wait a minute, why would I want to do that? It will draw traffic away from my blog!’ Well, there are two reasons:

One, content.  It is always good to continually update your blog with unique and interesting content.  By allowing guest posting, your getting new content for free!

Two, whoever you allowed to guest post will certainly link to that post in their blog.  This creates traffic two ways.  People see you allow guess posting and come read your blog to see if they might be able to contribute.  Also, people will visit your blog to view their favorite readers guess post, giving you more readers.  And three, the link from one blog to another is great for SEO or search engine optimization.

If you have a new blog you would like featured here, and plan to allow guest posting.  Let me know and I will add it to the blog information.
