      “Ping” your way to the top

Pinging…
A way to automatically alert people
  through blog directories that publish
  updates that you’ve written
  something new on your blog.




                                          3
You can “ping” directories and search
 engines to let them know there’s
 new content on your blog.




                                        4
Your blog provider will automatically
 ping sites like Weblogs
 (www.weblogs.com) for you
 whenever you update your blog.

    Exchange links with other blogs
Linking to and from other web sites
  and blogs is a tried and tested
  Internet marketing technique that
  goes well with the blogging model.

Incoming links from relevant sites
  allow search engines to find your site
  more easily than if you had none.

                                       7
      The Golden Rule of linking
Your links should be to (and from)
 sites that are relevant to your
 subject matter – those sites should
 contain content that your target
 audience will be interested in.




                                       8
       It is Easy to add links

It is easy to add the links to your blog
  (usually in the sidebar) so that your
  readers can click through relevant
  web sites you are recommending.
