With the growth of blogs in the world of online marketing, website creation is changing a lot. Now websites are constantly updated and read more like newspapers than classic websites. There are blogs for every possible niche you could imagine. So how can you cash in on this growing web of blogs? In the following article I am going to talk about guest posting which is a great new way to get a ton of traffic to your website. Keep reading to now the best way to find blogs to guest post on and boost your traffic.

If you’re a product-based business, always make sure they actually feature products on the blog before you pitch something. If they do, check their About section, their Contact section, and/or look for a Review Policy section. Most blogs that accept product reviews or features list the information on how to pitch to them somewhere on the site.

Blogs are easier to create and maintain. Also, updating and adding content is much easier to do and the owner can learn how to do it fairly easily. Blogs rank higher with the search engines as well because the content is added to and updated far more often than with websites.

The link might have the blog address + /a short word/ + the name of the item. For example, on my website, most affiliate links are (example could be something like) richramalho dot com/productname.

Traditional safelists are becoming somewhat threadbare. Isn’t it amazing how quickly business changes on the ‘Net, and isn’t it weird how safelist people ‘spin their wheels’ by posting, posting, posting, when most messages go to ‘junk’ in-boxes to be automatically deleted. You can send out a whole lot of messages with safelists, but only a tiny percentage are likely to be actually read by a real person. Maybe that’s why email traffic is threatening to choke the Internet. Because of this, many canny web business people have now shifted to blogs as their main tool for promotion. Many others, like me – who continue to believe that safelists have a role (when properly used) -have made news a valuable extra facility in their marketing toolboxl.

Your blogs should have an optimum keyword density that catches the eye of a search engine to get it noticed. Besides, they should have a visual appeal, latest and burning topics. Make your blog interesting and appealing for the visitors so that they can keep coming back to you for more.

But I always assumed that most bloggers would be like me and have some sort of comment approval policy in place. But then I forget, there are a lot of people running blogs for personal stuff and they simply don’t understand the whole spamming thing. So blog spammers take advantage of the ignorance of these bloggers and blast them with junk comments. And if their blogging software doesn’t use the nofollow tag in links then they just got themselves a link that some search engines (coughMSNcoughYahoo!cough) would record as valuable.
