Blog Rewards for All my Blokesters
I’m always thinking of ways how I can promote more community on this blog and reward my fellow Blokesters who help to make Blog Bloke dot com a happening place. One of the great things that I like about Wordpress is it has a plethora of plugins that can make this happen.
I’m a firm believer that you reap what you sew. You receive according to how much you give. The same goes for the blogosphere because linking is what it’s all about.
Links provide the fuel that search engines thrive on. It’s what connects us all together and helps to improve our pagerank and online presence. So I came up with a couple of ideas that I hope you will take to heart and do the same with your own blogs.
Listen up Blokesters. This is what Blog Bloke is doing for you:
1. I’ve installed a “Top Commenters” (i.e. the Blokester Roll) plugin that not only lists the blogger’s name, but it also (when it works properly) makes a link back to your blog.
2. I’ve also installed a “Recent Comments” widget that makes a link back to the commenter’s blog.
3. Anyone who writes a post about the Bloke will get an honourable mention back at ya and an automatic membership in the Blokester Network.
4. Everyone who links to me will get a backlink from Blog Bloke and an automatic membership in the Blokester Network.
5. Everyone who links to me and puts a Blokester Button on their blog will get an automatic membership in the Blokester Network and be on my very special Blokester list.
Is that cool or what? That’s what I call reciprocal blogging — Blog Bloke style. On your mark, get ready, set, go…
UPDATE: I fixed the “Top Commenters” plugin. Woohoo! Now everyone gets a link!
