Lee Odden has released a list of things that he dislikes about blogs and you would rather check this out and make sure you are not doing these mistakes on your blog.
Personally I am enjoying rewarding people who comment on my blog by disabling the ‘Nofollow’ tag.
While it is important to submit to blog directories for increasing your link popularity, another important avenue that gets missed easily is RSS directories. Here’s how you can do this easily…
Almost all the blogging systems including Wordpress have an associated RSS feed that gets updated whenever you post to the blog. For Wordpress, the feed can be found at http://www.domain.com/wp-rss2.php or http://www.domain.com/blog/wp-rss2.php as the case may be. Now search for RSS directories and you will find quite a large list of good directories.
One such RSS directory is here. You should generally browse to the category that most closely matches the topic of your site and then click on ‘Add your site‘. Enter the required information and submit.
While some of the directories will include your site right away, most of them have human editors who review your site before inclusion. Therefore, it is a waste of time to submit junk sites because they will get rejected anyway.
Update: This was just a April Fool joke and a few people did notice the April1specialoffer email address and the date of the post. The offer is to good to be true. However you can continue reading the blog and pick up some good tips on blogging or get your own blog setup at a nominal fee.

Michel Fortin made a great post on ‘How to make money with blogs‘, wherein he has summarized some cool ideas about making money with blogs. Here are some of the highlights and take-ways:
- Don’t blog for money, make money with blogs (go figure)!
- Anyone can blog and anyone can make money with a blog.
- Virtually any site can be turned into a blog.
I quote a para from this post which I really loved:
Because the beauty of this process is that people can get a taste of who you are and what you offer (and how people react to you, based on their comments as well as their thoughts expounded on social networking sites when your blog is dugged or del.icio.us’ed), which builds awareness, trust, credibility and, above all, relationships with your subscribers.
Read Michel’s full post here and check out the 7 methods you can make money blogging.
P.S. Michel also uses the Semiologic blogging system 🙂
RSS Feeds have become very popular and are an elegant medium to keep the people updated about what’s new. The world is fast moving from a push based information delivery mechanism where you send updates over email to pull-based information delivery, where they access your information when it is convenient for them.
We, at RentABlogger.com can setup your RSS feeds, update them on regular basis whenever you update your web site and submit these feeds to various RSS feed directories to give them the much needed exposure.
Allow us to setup the RSS feed for your site and promote them, while you enjoy the benefits out of it.
Just get in touch with me at arun @ ebizindia . com (remove spaces) for the services that you require and I will get back with a no-obligation proposal as soon as possible.
