During the months of April and May, homes across the world participate in the ritual of Spring Cleaning. The chaos of painting, building, vaccumming, throwing out & washing – immediately ensues. I’m of the opinion that blog owners should do the same with their “homes” on the net.
This spring I’m implementing two major modifications of SmartBoyDesigns.com. I’m Buildling My Blogroll & activating DoFollow for comments.
Building My Blogroll
Blogrolls are an excellent way for bloggers to connect and share readers. Some of the best blogs I’ve found have been through browsing Blogrolls.
In order to “jump start” my Blogroll – I’m rewarding blog comments. Add a comment to this post – and you’ll be rewarded with a link to your SEO/Blog/Design related blog in my Blogroll.
Rewarding Blog Comments – DoFollow
Many blogs horde links like squirrels protecting acorns before a heavy winter. I personally feel that individuals who take the time to comment should be rewarded with a juicy, visitor rich link to their site/blog. As of today, DoFollow has been enabled on Smart Boy Designs – allowing search engines to follow comment links.
I will say though that spamming will not be taken lightly. Please don’t spam your link throughout the comment body – your comment will be deleted.
The Cleaning Continues
I’ll be honest. I’m a clean freak. I like my home and blog to be clean and orderly. Take the time this spring to include a few new features on your blog – or spruce up the features you already have implemented. Trust me – your readers will appreciate the extra effort.
Don’t forget to add a comment with a link to your SEO/Blog/Design related blog – as I’ll be adding these to my Blogroll!
