SEO's (Search Engine optimization)


All commercial bloggers are agog over the different Search Engine Optimization (SEO's) outfits proliferating the blog world. Each one promises maximum traffic for those who will patronize their outfit. Let us review some of them since we cannot use all of these SEO's anyway.

1) EntreCard- It is the hottest craze among serious commercial bloggers nowadays. You will just click the widget on the blogger's sidebar and you are transported to the blog site of the one who advertised. You score one credit when you click on another blogger's widget and you also get one credit if they did the same to you. You also earn credits from those who advertise to you. You can use these credits to advertise on other blogs.

2) BlogCatalog - It also uses clicks to blog hop from one blog to another. The picture or caricature of the blog hopper appears on the widget at the blogger's sidebar that he visited.

3) MyBlogLog - It is similar to BlogCatalog where the blog hopper's picture or caricature appears on the widget at the sidebar of the blog he visited.

4) Stumble Upon - You use a browser at your tool bar section to browse on members' blogs and you give your rating on the blog whether you approve or reject the previewed blog.

5) Link Referral - You visit a minimum of 30 blogs a day, review 5 blog sites a day, rate a favorite and participate in a forum discussion to be able to place highly at their ratings board.

6) Technoratti Favorites - You include the names of your favorite blog sites in your Technoratti profile. You can also ping them so that their authority rating will increase. Technoratti also provides blog ratings to all active blogs.

7) Fuel My Blog - You rate the blogs that you review and give your favorable rating by fueling their blog.

8) Site Hoppin - Very similar to EntreCard where you can blog hop using your beer credits. You can also transact business deals using beer credits.

9) Bumpzee - A community based blogger's friendship groupings very similar to Blog Catalog and MyBlogLog.

10) Diggs - A ratings outfit that rates every post that a member blogger makes.

Other friendship and link organizations are:
a) Friendster
b) Facebook
c) Hoover
d) Twitter
e) My Space
f) Site Meter
g) Link2Blogs
h) Going Up
i) Add This.com

Me? I concentrate only on three SEO's- BlogCatalog, EntreCard and MyBlogLog. How about you?

Join John Chow's Contest And Win 10,000 EntreCard Credits

For the past few months, I’ve been letting my Entrecard credits build up. Currently, I have 18,817 EC credits sitting in my account. I’ve decided to give away 10,000 credits to a lucky blogger so he or she can try out the service.

Entering the contest is extremely simple. Just send a trackback by making a blog post about this contest on your blog. If the trackback doesn’t work, then leave the URL to your blog post in the comment. At the end of this month, I’ll draw a name from all the entries received and transfer 10,000 Entrecard credits into that person’s account.

You’ll need to have an Entrecard account to enter this contest. You can’t spend the credit anywhere else. For those who don’t know what Entrecard is, please read my original review of the service.

New Entrecard Pricing Model

The 10,000 credits will come in handy since Entrecard introduced a new demand based pricing model. Blogs that are in high demand has seen their prices skyrocket. This blog now cost over 1,000 credits to advertise on.

The new price model simply doubles a blog’s price every time someone purchases an ad, and halves it every time an ad completes its run. So if you cost 500, someone could buy an ad from you but they’d have to pay 1000. The next person would have to pay 2000. And so on. But then if two days went by and no one bought an ad from you, you’re price will halve each day. I guess if no one bought ads from me, my price will eventually fall to zero. Then again, the chance of that happening is zero.

Entrecard is one of the best way for new blogs to get targeted traffic. It’s the only way you can get a 125×125 ad on this blog and Problogger.net without paying cash for it. Right now, an Entrecard ad on Problogger cost 4,096 credits and if someone buys it, the new price will be 8,192 credits. That’s a lot of credits but you’ll be able to afford it if you win the 10,000 Entrecard credits. Good luck!
