I often field questions from entrepreneurs that are completely awestruck at the possibility that their product can adorn the pages of a glossy magazine. Or, I see the stars swirl around in their eyes that, maybe…just maybe….one day….they could share their sage wisdom with Meredith Viera and the Today Show audience.
In your Web surfing, you may have noticed that not only do news sites have website, but many other sites are also jumping onto the blog bandwagon. Blogs are becoming the new “must have” of the Web world.
Because there’s a cost to these lists, fewer people use them. However, in my experience, many of these purchased lists are still spammed to death because there’s no oversight on the commenting quality. Like number 1 above, many of the blogs on purchased lists soon switch their commenting to nofollow fairly quickly.
Note that this approach is trial and error. Not every website you check out that links to your competitors will have dofollow comments. However, if the links are showing up for your competitor, there’s a chance you can get a link.
You want to make sure your blog or article content is of high quality and is informational to online readers. If you really want to make money online, you have to make sure that your blog can build and maintain a decent amount of regular readers. This is best if the readers of your blog can find relevant information and tips in your blog and your articles.
In a quick peek at those statistics I realized that the visitors from all over the globe. And so I went to MSN search which is much friendlier to blog searches than Google or Yahoo. Google maintains its own blog search facility separate from its normal search. Yes your blog can end up in Google Main Search as well, but that would take an incredible amount of great back-links to it and really high popularity. MSN was still showing my blog in search requests.
Blogs are another way to create community. The really interesting and well written blogs are visited regularly, and most give the reader an easy way to post comments. Regular reading and posting make the good blogs even better.
There are many reasons why blogging has become popular so quickly, and why blogs will continue to be part of the online environment. No business can afford to ignore blogging, and this means that for the foreseeable future, blogging is a brilliant new market for freelance writers.
