Anyone else have their own blog? I have a blog at <link snipped> if anyone has their own blog and would like to add my site to their blog roll i will certainly reciprocate and put yours on mine, of course on your own blog you can add backlinks to your hub pages so if anybody wants to take part just let me know, regards
Nice idea, but please bear in mind that these days, Google hates to see unrelated links on a blog. So make sure you only accept links to blogs and Hubs which are in the same subject area as yours, or you will get Google slapped!
Also, links in a blogroll are not particularly valuable. Far more valuable is a link within a blog post, so it's much better to write a guest blog post for each other, than to simply swap links.
Google removed all Ads from my most popular blog due to unrelated links and some other reasons that they never quite explained - rather than trying to figure it out I decided to delete my blog - didn't want to jeopordize my adsense account.
My other blog isn't quite as successful, and needs to be updated as I have quite a few entries that are an introduction to a longer article (another thing Google no longer likes!) - it's a blog on Book reviews - so if your blog is similar let me know and I'll update the blog and then link to you!!!
Thanks for the reply Simey, my blog is based around strange stuff UFOs, Cryptozoology etc thats the kind of links im looking for.
Your old blog got slapped for unrelated links, so now you're offering an unrelated link on your new site?
It would make a lot more sense to ask nuffsaidstan to write a guest book review on a book in his subject area, and he can then safely include a link to his site.
Why is another blog about book reviews an unrelated link? What I meant was that if the blog in question is a book review blog then I'd link - I wouldn't link to it otherwise.
I agree with the guest posting idea though.......but if I add a link to his blog isn't that still an unrelated link even though he has a guest post on my blog.
I understood what you meant. Artificial backlinking (and a lot of unrelated links) killed my old blog, so now I'm very careful with my new one, but this sounds like a good idea if you ask me.
Sorry Simey, missed this post. I assumed you would've visited the link to his site (which is in his first post), before you made the offer - that's why I thought it didn't make sense.
With the guest post thing, I wasn't suggesting a reciprocal link. Reciprocal links are less valuable than one-way links anyway. Sure, that means you don't get a backlink - you don't want it, because it's unrelated - but you do get a free blog post, which you don't have to write, and he gets a backlink. So you both win.
Thanks for the advice, yes i'm aware about Google not liking unrelated blog links perhaps i should have made it clear that i am looking for blogs in a similar vein to mine, many thanks
The name of my main blog is such that I can throw anything and everything in there, including the kitchen sink.
I have a hub about a bathroom sink - would that work???
Just curious, do you get many readers? The accepted advice is that you have to concentrate on one subject if your blog is to have any chance of success, so if you've been able to buck that trend it would be good to know.
