Blogs have been around for a few years now and are still growing in popularity. There are several reasons why more and more people are using blogs. It is extremely easy to post anything on a blog as compared to posting similar content on a traditional web page. Therefore anyone who wants to write comments, experience, opinions, and ideas on any subject finds it very convenient to use blogs where you can just insert your postings without bothering about messing with HTML.
Blogs can be used very effectively to promote your business and to get your message across. They can also be used for generating revenue. You can put up Google AdSense and other contextual ads. You can also put up affiliate links. Another possibility is to put up web forms to invite subscribers for your newsletters. Some knowledge of HTML will be required to install AdSense and web forms etc.
Find blogs in a specific niche. For example, I do publicity consulting for a number of industries. But I’ve written guest posts for blogs that reach specific verticals – like medical, pets, bridal, and crafting communities. Even though these Look at my pictures don’t have a ‘big’ reach in numbers, the niche audience and content matched so well that I gained plenty of new fans.
The nofollow was merely a band aid fix to one kind of blog spam, but not a solution to the real problem. But since there is not just one kind of blog spam there is no single solution either.
The first important thing you should do is to select your niche. After selection of your niche, you should make a list of your favorites. If you do not have an existing blog, you need to register online. There are free blogs that you can register with. When you are through with the registration, you should select the feel and look. You can personalize the layout of the blogs.
You are also required to think about other important tasks such as updating plugins for all of your web logs. Although it may be not a difficult task but having to do it for dozens of blogs, one by one, is really a stressful toil. You may also have to deal with people who comment on your blog posts. In this case, before answering any comments, it is necessary for you to distinguish first which are the real ones and which are posted by spammers.
Go ahead and take action! Build a good list of blogs using Google and Stumble Upon. Then start contacting the blog owners. Make it part f your daily routine to do this and you’ll have great success. Good Luck!
