Hi Tracy--

I read your new blog with interest. Your presentation is great. Since you have a web host that supports WordPress [popular free blogging platform]-- you may wish to consider, incorporating a WordPress blog or FTPing your blogger.com posts to your own domain.

Each time a blog post is published it gets indexed by major search engines. This indexing could help your domain with ranking and promotion efforts.

Default The beauty of blogs

On Blogger.com (and Blogger in beta) there's a 'link to this post' facility. Is this what you mean by 'ping'?

When I link to a post I like, it makes a new post in my blog (to make the link). I guess the $64,000 question is, do any search engines really count this as a post? Exactly what they do count, and why, is maybe an even bigger Q.

This is a really useful thread, by the way.

Let's say that you find a blog post that you would like to comment on, you can post your comments on your own site, but include a link back to the other blog's URL. The site owner will see that you have written something about their post, and will likely check your post out.

so there's my 2 cents....
do you find this helps with your traffic and your seo- or doe the linking back like this simply shed all your link juice? I too am looking for ways to improve my blog and it's visitors.

You need to start promoting and building relationships. Are there other blogs which you find that match the same focus of readers you are getting? Add a link and they may add one back.
