There’s been some hot topics on the 50 Most Influential Blogs in Malaysia that most bloggers don’t quite agree on the term, influential. I think it should be named Top 50 Blogs in Malaysia. That would be better since those blogs don’t really “influent” the readers anyway. Since then, bloggers were trying to increase their page rank or popularity or traffic (or whatever they are trying to do) by doing some link building to their blog. Why should I be left out from this 🙂 ? I will offer some tips to increase page rank and popularity of a site as well as increasing mine at the same time here.
The page rank for a blog is actually depends on the number of websites linking to yours. So the more, the better, but it also depends on the category similiarity of the websites that linked to yours. For example, if a food blog linked to a technology blog, the category the blogs are not same and it will not increase your page rank. How to make more websites or blogs link to your blog? You can actually do some link exchanging program by providing a link back to the site linked to yours. Most people do this calling it blogrolling by adding links on their sidebar. For my blog, I’ve created a link page just for link exchange. If you want to exchange link with me, just add my blog to your blogroll and contact me. I will add your link to the page as soon as possible.
Technorati ranks blogs by determining the number of links from blogs linking to it. So practically by doing link exchanging might help a bit for getting a better ranking. Another way to get to the top is asking your readers to add your site as their technorati favorites. The top 100 blogs in Technorati are actually blogs that have the most readers that add their blogs as favorites. So if you want to improve your technorati rankings, try adding my blog as your favorites and I will add yours as mine as well. 😉
Do you have a MyBlogLog account? MyBlogLog is a bloggers community that is growing fast lately. By creating an account in MyBlogLog, you will create a community for your blog as well as for yourself. You can add other bloggers as your friends, and also asking your readers to join your blog’s community. The more readers in your blog’s community, the more popular your blog will become. So if you enjoy reading my blog, please add yourself into my blog’s community. You can add me as your contact as well if you want to.
That’s all for now. I hope you enjoy reading this 😉
