I GIVE A HELPING HAND =) CHECK IT OUT

  1. I am a new here at wordpress and just had my new site published here. I know its hard to get viewers in our site/blog/pages everyday.
    So..I had this idea...
    Anyone who wants their blog/site to be posted in my links of bloggers (it will be in my homepage)
    please post here your links so I can add you guys up =)
    Lets help each other make our blog/site visible to people on the internet =)

    The blog I need help with is kathflores.com.

  2. http://zodiactree.wordpress.com/

    Thanks, great idea. =)

  3. your welcome =)
    I posted it already ^,..,^ have a great day!

  4. http://evolutionofhatred.wordpress.com I shall add yours too :)

  5. Hello there one and all,
    This may seem like a good idea on the surface and it is a good idea if you don't give a fig about page ranking, and don't know how it works. But if you do care and do want to become informed then read Understanding Reciprocal and Non-Reciprocal Links

    If your web pages and the site get a lot of reciprocal (two-way links), especially if they are not related then the search engines will assume that these are solicited links, and search engines do not give much importance to such two-way or reciprocal links and may even penalize your site.

  6. So T T, as i can make out, as long as my blogroll members are commenting and visiting my site at times, all is fine. If they are not that's bad.

  7. @dribblingpensioner
    Personal blogs have a very large scope when it comes to topical content so you have no need to be concerned. I feel squeamish when I see a flock of newbies doing the reciprocal link exchange thing when they don't know much or even anything at all about linking strategies.

    If you want to have a Blogroll that's cool. They are not required and I don't see A list bloggers with lengthy blogrolls. I don't have a Blogroll as such. I have Links page that directs my readers to directly related blogs in the same niche that I recommend to them. I also have Friends Page where I link to those who have shown a pattern of commenting on my blog and encouraging me to continue to blog.

    When it comes to a blog earning page rank hat's by far more important is noting that:
    (1) Google does not place high value on reciprocal links;
    (2) Google places even less value on reciprocal links to unrelated blogs;
    (3) Posting a thread soliciting links here on a forum where every thread is indexed by Google is something I wouldn't be doing;
    (4) Google does place high value on the backlinks within posts to directly related posts in blogs in the same niche. In other words, Google is looking for natural linking patterns.

  8. thank you guys for participating =)...
    and all I can say is... all we wanted , is to make our blog/site much more visible to the internet..and aim that more people will come and visit us. Because when you make your own blog/site aren't you having a networking connection with other social sites? .. and there is widget that whenever you post an article in your website it will automatically post that link to your social site and people will be clicking that link and they will be redirected to your site.. by then ---- viewing your site/blog will give them a chance to click on other authors/bloggers/website owners...and it helps =) at least one way or the other people will come and visit the other ones too.. not just me ... lets say people have this thing called "CURIOSITY" so I know...it will help others to gain a percentage of visit =) .... I know its not much but at least it helps ...
    and I hope you got my idea =) have a great day..

    and those who want to submit their site feel free to post your links here =) I'l keep posting new links in my homepage ..thank you.. and more power to us!
    ...

  9. @ kathflores23, like timethief i don't have a blogroll i have a links page, with about 20 people who have swapped links. It does not say they will visit or that i will get hits from their site, i do get some.
    The best way is to visit other sites and comment in posts then people will visit, but don't comment to much or you might be called a spammer or a troll :)

  10. Comment all you want on mine, it makes me feel speshulz. :)

  11. @ ardpete, i forgot to put you in my blogroll, as i'm in yours so i will do that to-night.

  12. :O :O :O TRAITOR!

    Haha it's okay, I don't tell people I'm putting them in my blog roll I just do it, basically so I have quick access to the blogs I read more than anything so it's all good :D

  13. @ pete: Lawl! ... stealing links huh! whahahah

  14. @ardpete

    I don't tell people I'm putting them in my blog roll I just do it.

    You are on the right track. You aren't soliciting reciprocal link exchanges and that means you are on the right track.

    @kathflores23
    With respect I state that I have blogged for over 6 years and you have no useful advice you can offer me when it comes to linking. I don't advise soliciting reciprocal link exchanges and I have posted why above. That blah, blah, blah you posted is meaningless, given the facts I posted. If you are offended by this then it will be you problem not mine. My recommendation is that you hold off with the blah, blah, blah and read what I posted because it's in your best interest to do so.

  15. calm down..I am not offended ... maybe you are?! ... the way you talk..if you don't care what I posted then why waste time disagreeing with me?... just don't participate... that's it ... but don't get people pissed off because you dislike the post..i don't care if you blogged for 6years... I didn't even gave you an advise you were the one talking too much in this post like lecturing people what you wanted them to do and what is best, its not even an advice.. its a lecture, and whats the matter about this idea? ... I don't think there is something wrong with this..I posted this with respect to everyone and tryin to be friendly and you came into the scene talking like you know EVERYTHING, well... SORRY! If I dont know what you know about those stuff...but.. I didn't beg you to participate in here ... If you dont like this post your back arrow button in your browser is for you to click ...

  16. @kathflores23
    My advice is based on what Google provides to webmasters:
    When it comes to a blog earning page rank hat's by far more important is noting that:
    (1) Google does not place high value on reciprocal links;

    (2) Google places even less value on reciprocal links to unrelated blogs;

    (3) If your web pages and the site get a lot of reciprocal (two-way links), especially if they are not related then the search engines will assume that these are solicited links, and search engines do not give much importance to such two-way or reciprocal links and may even penalize your site. That's why posting a thread soliciting reciprocal links here on a forum where every thread is indexed by Google is something I wouldn't be doing;

    (4) Google does place high value on the backlinks within posts to directly related posts in blogs in the same niche. In other words, Google is looking for natural linking patterns.

    If you don't like the fact that we can all post into any thread here as long as what we post is on-topic and does not violate the rules of conduct then that's unfortunately something you will have to deal with.

  17. @ kathflores23, you are on here looking for members to come and link to your blog and to help to make it popular.

    Well, you have been given advice by one of the top advisors in the forum, T T was trying to help you understand how to do things, but if you want to act like a complete and utter ass hole, carry on.

    I'm sure the people who read this post and what you said to her, will not go near your blog and not link to you, i thought about it, but not now.

  18. How do you check your page rank on Google if you can?

  19. @ardpete
    There are many Google page rank checkers online. http://tinyurl.com/3lg3mex

  20. 3/10 Hah, I take it that's not good :)

  21. @ardpete
    Yes, it is an good PR. Consider the time frame ie. it's less than 6 months since you began that blog. Your writing is high quality, original, grammatically correct and entertaining. You are using keywords naturally ie. no keyword stuffing. You appear to know that assigning the least combined number of relevant Categories and Tags that to your posts is the way to go. I repeat. Your blog has earned a respectable PR. So don't forget id and when you choose (yuck!) to enter reciprocal link exchanges with those who have blogs that lack a PR, or have a lower PR, or that have unrelated content to yours that it's their blogs that gain and not yours - capice?

  22. @dribblingpensioner : Don't blame it on me.. because I didn't started it all.. she did.. I was talking nice and then she replied like that? tell me about it...who wouldn't be startled?
    read my previous posts here... check it if i talked like I am looking for trouble...I made this thread not to start a rumble but to help ... In the first place..the way she talk on my idea? ..its like she talked about it as "nonsense" for having people's links on my homepage and started explaining everything. I have nothing against that... but I got pissed off on her last post the way she talked to me... If my idea is not as helpful and not best as she thinks.. its ok... but she should have respect ... not talkin like that...besides I am not forcing anyone to participate and why would she talk about "based on Google provides to webmasters"...or whatever...
    This is not even a big deal.. I know shes just giving advice...and I just told her what is my idea all about ...thats it.. I even stop talkin about it..the last post I made was nothing related about that topic which is
    ----"@ pete: Lawl! ... stealing links huh! whahahah" -----------
    thats it... and check what she posted..... so please dont blame it on me if i got startled.. she talked to me in like an unwanted manner.
    I know you guys were here longer than me... I know I am new here... but instead of ranting on my idea, if you don't like it just ignore it ... that's fine... I have nothing against it.. but at least try to be respectful.. because the moment she kept explaining everything.. thats bein an insult to someone ... I dint made it a big deal I just described my idea... and she took it the wrong way...
    I already stopped talkin about that topic and she just kept on going...

  23. 3/10 is good Pete, especially when you've just been blogging for 2months. It took me at least 6 months to get a google rank.

  24. Whose been Blogging for two months!? Ive been Blogging for three months! :P
