The Blogs Strike Back

Everyone knows that Blogs are the future of the internet, they are search engine friendly and get listed very quickly, which is why many people are hosting their blogs on their own servers now because they see the importance to their business. The last thing any Internet Business Owner wants to happen is that their blog is shut down at Blogger or any other free blog hosting site.

Teenagers were the first large group of people to use Blogging for beginners. Blogging became a favorite past time between the years of 2000 and 2004. Teenagers still blog, but adults have caught the blogging fever as well.

But there are a great many blogs and scraper sites out there that steal content and don’t give proper attribution. They either republish a summary of articles (sometimes linking to the source, sometimes not) or publish the full article but remove the author and bio info. Still others run the article through a rewrite software program so they can publish “unique” content on their site, even though it’s still stolen content.

First of all, the search engines love blogs. Google knows people love online blogs because they’re constantly updated with fresh new content. So they give them great rankings in the search engines. That means you get tons of visitors to your blog without having to pay for advertising.

Profiles are easy to access. You can browse sites, enter your search criteria, and begin taking a look at the type of people that match that search criteria. You can see photos, read about their interests, and maybe even see video clips. This is all available at the touch of your mouse. You can check these out in the private of your own home.

But in my experience blogging is over looked by most internet marketers, and online business owners as well for that matter, because they have to ‘work’ at producing quality and reader relevant content on a regular basis. How do I know blogs are overlooked? Easy… The internet marketing students and online business owners I regularly coach never discuss blogging! Sure they’ll talk all day about PPC, Google slap, SEO… but never blogging.

I’m sure you’re wondering by now how this is done. Well it is really quite simple all you have to do is contact the owners of popular blogs in your niche. For the niches I am involved in I have a long list of blogs that I can contact for guest posting. To look for blogs in your niche search for top blogs on Google or use Stumble Upon. Stumble Upon is great because you can search in your niche and it’s easy to find popular pages with great content and they are often blogs. Start compiling your list of blogs so you can easily find new sites to guest post on.

More importantly, a quality dofollow blog subscription service will monitor the comments made and prohibit auto-commenting with software. Violators are removed from the membership. This oversight maintains the integrity of the comments and increase the chances the blogs retain dofollow commenting.
