For blogs link popularity index is an important thing. Well, I guess most of you know about it much more earlier than me. I just discovered about this matter 3-4 weeks ago. http://www.marketleap.com/publinkpop/ is one of the best places to check your link popularity. The figure for my blog is more than 52,000. Well, much credit goes to Know More Media (business blog) Network. If you had not checked your link popularity, you can give it a try.

Me too. Interesting tool, though...Yes, I agree -- one I'm surely going to obssess over until the numbers climb . . . if they climb . . . no, WHEN they climb. :)

It's as bad as those tools for monitoring your Amazon ranking :)

If you are serious about blogging then this thing matters just like Technorati. However, building backlinks take time and effort. One way to increase links is to write comments in other blogs.

razibahmed - I would caution you that there are different interpretations of 'serious' blogging. For some it's more commercial - like you, but for others it's the social network we're building or the contributions we can make to peers, etc.

Your advice about commenting is well taken - I agree it's the way to build networks, but many of us aren't that interested in increasing links...so just take that into consideration, please.

And, unless you misunderstand, we value and appreciate your participation and enthusiasm, you're an asset to the forum!

Thanks for your comment. Yes I agree with you that there are different interpretations of 'serious' blogging. I am trying for my society too in my personal blog: http://write-translate.blogspot.com/ ( I am among very few people trying to promote Bangla literature in English language).
Anyway, I got the point and I will try my best to follow your advice 100%.

:cry: The only way I know how to get people to visit my blog is to comment on other people's.


Why, oh why, was I born rich and beautiful instead of tech-saavy like you people? Linkbacks, trackbacks....I can't even get Technorati to work right for me....:Shrug:

If it is really important to you to get link/trackbacks/more traffic generally, Lorrelle from lorelle.wordpress.com has some tips. (And no, I am not Lorelle)




So, here are a few tips for getting those blog traffic stats to skyrocket. And Iíll warn you in advance, itís a bit satirical.



Get someone to say something awful about you in a highly visible place on the web.
Say something awful about someone in a highly visible place on the web, and make sure to include a link to your blog.
Write something argumentative and inciteful. Then spread the word.
Write a Top 20 List.
Make up a lot of fake name registrations on Digg and del.icio.us and submit your posts there. Score your posts really high.
Use a very provocative title. Remember, sex sells.
Poke fun or meanness at a famous bloggers with a link to the post you are attacking, so a trackback will appear in the comments highlighting your nasty poke.
Get to know a famous blogger and together, plan a big public fight. Involve others in the fight.
Invent and/or write about something everyone needs to solve all of their problems all of the time. Then get it put on Digg or Slashdot.

Hmmm....I think I've got the title thing going on....but being mean isn't my style.

Snarky, yes. Downright rude, probably not. I usually keep my claws sheathed - but I will bat someone about the head and shoulders - in a vigorous kitty cat style.

Mine came up average, which pleased me in some respects. I am glad I am not in the suck catagory, but the artist in me doesn't care for 'average.'

I submitted it in Entertainment, because I couldn't see writing or poetry, I didn't think to look for photograpy. It was fun none the less. I get traffic from here, and commenting on other blogs. I use a site meter also. The numbers go up when I am more active with blogging.

Unique: I have seen that cat style! The paws blur don't they?

Hi Dawno

Thank you for the welcome. I just started a blog this week, but I am not confident enough to spread the URL around the net yet. I am still getting used to the navigation, working on presentation, and of course, filling it up with content.

I do I have a question about blog etiquette though: Is it bad form to add a blog to your blogroll without communicating with the author first? I have added a few to mine mostly for quick reference for me, but haven't asked if that was all right. No complaints so far, but I haven't been around long.

I did add the Water Cooler to my links, though. Great forum.

I just started a second blog a week ago...http://jakartaguru.blogspot.com

So far I'm racing towards 100 visitors :cry:

A good way is also to get on message boards, not just this one, and use it in your signature

OP are you Bangladeshi???

Flood, I'm pretty sure that folk don't mind one bit being added without being asked. You can always mention in the comments on their blog that you liked reading and have linked.

Welcome Natasya!

I'd like to recommend that you add your blogs and a brief intro up in the Absolute Write Bloggers' thread - that's where folk look for new blogs.

arg, those link pop statistics are scarey!

Here are my two, definitely gonna have to work on them. Not bad I guess for newbie sites though, right?

www.book-bee.com 5 0 0 4 1
www.blogsforreaders.com 439 0 0 439 0

Thanks for the link though. One more thing to check every so often. :) Now to figure out how to get rid of the zeros...
