Two posts ago, we talked about how commenting is important in niche blogging. More so, we emphasized how important it is for you to choose the blogs that you leave comments in; that, as much as possible, you should choose the blogs that are the most popular in your niche.
The next question then is this: how do you determine which blogs are the most popular in your niche? Here are some tips to help you find those blogs. They are really easy and you may actually be doing some of them already.
Everyone in the blogging business knows about Technorati. Even newbies are quite aware of what Technorati is and how important it is to building up oneâ€™s blog. One good thing that I like about Technorati is that you can download a file of the top 10 blogs in any of the existing category. That means almost no work for you!
Here is another simple way to find the top blogs. Just go to http://del.icio.us/tag/topic+blog.
I have been hearing about StumbleUpon for the longest time but to be honest, it was only recently that I joined the community. I wish I had done it earlier. There are tons of people using StumbleUpon and the classifications are quite specific. However, there is no single file that you can download like in Technorati. Still, StumbleUpon is a good way to find blogs in a particular niche.
Of course, these are only some of the tools that you can use. Do you have any suggestions as to how to easily find the top blogs in a niche?
