If you are new to blogging, then you may be wondering what this post is all about. If you arenâ€™t, then I am sure you have a pretty good idea about what I am going to talk about. For the benefit of those who are not familiar with the term, a blogroll is merely a list of other blogs which you post on your on blog.
So if you are browsing through a specific blog and you see a long list of links to other blogs on one side, you are actually looking at the blogroll. This is one way of letting your readers know that you are recommending the blogs on your blogroll to them. In the same way, if the link to your blog appears in other blogs, you have a form of free advertisement.
With that said, you should pretty much get what I am saying at â€“ blogrolling is good. At the risk of being repetitive, using blogrolls means that you are promoting someone elseâ€™s blog and at the same time, your blog is being promoted by others. Seeing it from a business point of view, being in other blogsâ€™ blogroll will enhance your presence on the web.
Imagine if your readers like your blog that much and they link to your business blog in their own sites and blogs? That means higher incoming links and that in turns translates to being in good terms with search engines. In addition to the human factor â€“ people actually seeing your link in other sites â€“ being in the first few pages of a search result is what you are looking for.
So if I were you, Iâ€™d get into blogrolling now.
