A Whole Lot Of Link Luvin Going On

For those newbie bloggers out there who may be wondering as to why so many bloggers insist on their link luv feasts where they, sometimes weekly, link to a whole heap of blogs, well I hope the following three points may clear things up a bit.

  1. To reward their commentators:  There are many who feel, and rightly so, that this is a great way to reward those commentators who come back time and time again to add their contribution to their posts.
  2. Sharing a great find: We’re all mates right? So if we come across a great post, that has inspired us, why wouldn’t you want to share it?
  3. Hoping for some reciprocation: I’m sure that even though most bloggers do not actually say outright that they want some link luvin in return, they hope that some of the luv that went out will actually come back in one form or another. Sort of like the old, ‘you scratch my back and I will scratch your back’ mentality.

I would like to point out that point three hardly every occurs when commenting on the so called ‘Pro Blogger’ bloggers. It seems that bloggers like John Chow and Darren Rowse just don’t seem to have the time to reciprocate any favors, heck they don’t even have the time to reply to some of their commentators. Sure they’re blogs are a whole lot busier than ours, but then their pros who have made it to the stage that their blog is their job, whereas many other bloggers have to hold down a job as well has maintaining their blogs.

Still, this post isn’t about a rant at all, I just got side tracked there a bit, it’s about sharing some link luv with those of you out there who have either commented on my blog, or whose blog I have read that had struck a chord in me leading to some link luvin.

Most of you who visit my blog know of Kristi of Kikolani fame, but rather than link to her post about Google Trends :innocent1_tb: I want to tell you about her new venture. It’s her DoFollow Blog Directory and Compendium where you

will find out everything you want to know about DoFollow, and where to find DoFollow friendly sites.

If yours is a dofollow blog and you want to advertise the fact you should check it out, as Kristi plans to make this the best DoFollow resource center on the net, one that goes beyond the normal dofollow posts you will find as it also allows you to mention any addition features your blog may offer, such as CommentLuv, whether or not Keywords are allowed and the presence of the  Top Commentator plugin etc. The fact that she also won Doug’s professional Custom Banner Giveaway Package will ensure that her new site will stand out from the rest.

Trey’s post at Swollen Thumb Entertainment have always been an interesting read, but his A Better Approach To Leaving Comments I found to be a par above the rest. You all know how important I believe commenting is to a blogs sustainability, I’ve been on about it long enough, well Trey has managed to put it in such a way that everyone reading the post will leave a wiser commetator, and if they don’t, well there may be something wrong with them.

Mitch of I’m Just Sharing is an excellent blogger and I am constantly astounded that he is not up there with the big boys. He writes extremely well and is always willing to try something new. Not one to give up, if after giving an idea a good run for it’s money, if it’s not working the way it should be he is willing to change as can be seen from his post, Post#500 Something New For Me.

Now, not everyone is a fan of becoming a dofollow blog, because it sometimes does lead to people leaving stupid nonsensical comments just so they can get a link back to their site. Don’t they realize that there is a spammers hell waiting for them? :devil_tb: Luckily Todd of Todd’s Tips has found a plugin that will enable you to Reward  Only Your Blogging Friends With DoFollow Links.

Ever since moving from Blogger to WordPress, on her own domain not that free thingy, I reckon it’s safe to say that Ching Ya has never looked back, as can be seen from the amount of comments she’s getting from her happy readers on 16 Social Bookmarking Plugins to Promote Your Posts.

Ever wondered how to create  a One Page Adsense Site for your niche? Well that link I’ve just provided will take you to Brian’s Exreme Ezine which is full of marketing tips and other little tid bits.

Last but not least I best not leave out Cheryl who’s ‘Marketing Help Blog’ is a treat, especially her post on how to Get Backlinks Indexed Faster. Also, if you haven’t had Sheryl comment on one of your posts, you don’t know what your missing. When Sheryl leaves a comment you just know what your going to get and I always read them with some trepidation :laugh_tb:

Well, I reckon that’s enough link luvin for one post, and I know you must be tired from examining all those links, so I would like to leave you with a little video. I may have spatterings of the ‘F’ word so don’t watch it if you find it offensive.

  1. Thanks for mentioning my site in your link love. I added your post to my Fetching Friday too!

    I like to share links from around the blogging world to introduce my readers to all the other great ones out there that they may not normally have the time to discover. And breaking them up by topic helps people find the latest news in the topic that they want to know about.

    Thanks again!

    ~ Kristi
    .-= Kristi@DoFollow´s last blog ..Fetching Friday – Resources Mashup, 911, Oes Tsetnoc & Clydesdales =-.

    1. No worries Kristi, while this post is nowhere near as comprehensive as your Fetching Friday series, I do my humble best as a mere Aussie male. :wink_ee:

  2. That was some serious link luvin there Sire! I appreciate you throwing us in there as well. I have visited all the sites you mentioned in your post and they all have their own unique styles and great information.

    I can’t wait to see how the banners turn out for Kristi. Hopefully they will look great :)

    1. I couldn’t help slipping a bit of luvin your way Doug, and like you I can’t wait to see what I missed out on when Kristi unveils her prize.

  3. Oh yeah…. HILARIOUS video! What a bunch of idiots… but I do appreciate their stupidity… as well as someone filming it.
    .-= Doug Dillard´s last blog ..Great Reasons to Subscribe to Making Money Online’s Newsletter! =-.

    1. I’m glad you liked it. It’s always a bit of a task trying to find something that will suit the general public, without offending too many :devil_tb:

  4. Twitter:
    Thanks for the link love and attention Sire, It’s appreciated. I’m about due for another ‘social edition’ myself. You just gave me a cool post idea. Stay tuned ;)
    .-= Brian D. Hawkins@The Newsletter For Internet Marketers´s last blog ..Get Featured With Our Promotional Buttons =-.

    1. Yeah, I know exactly where you’re coming from Brian. Don’t worry about it though, I’m sure you will come up with another idea in another year or so. :laugh_tb:

  5. What, I gave someone an idea? Shit I thought I was supposed to keep those to myself :zip_ee: :cheese1_ee:

    As to the link luv, credit where credit is due.

    1. Twitter:
      I wish I would have told you the idea because now I can’t remember what it was. And that was the first good idea I had all year :)

  6. Twitter:
    Thanks for the love, Sire. However, I’m still getting an internal server error when trying to get to Swollen Thumb Entertainment for some reason.
    .-= Mitch´s last blog ..September 11, 2001 – I’m Still Mad =-.

    1. Yeah, I’m getting the same error Mitch. I reckon he’s having a little ‘host’ problem which hopefully will be rectified soon.

      1. No worries Trey, after reading your post I couldn’t not link to it.

  7. I have to agree with you Sire that Kristi’s blog rocks. She comes up with coolest ideas and resources. I think I found your blog through one of her blog posts ;-)
    I’m also do follow but i want to start a blog ( about working form home and blogging)in my subdirectory that will also have comment luv.
    I’ll have to go read about the backlinks getting indexed and also the do follow social bookmarking sites.
    By the way thanks for commenting on my blog :-D

    .-= Eren@ homemaking´s last blog ..My sweet sixteen party pictures & planning ideas =-.

    1. Hey Eren, yeah Kristi’s blog is pretty cool, and I love commenting on your blog so as long as you keep putting out those good posts, you can bank on this Aussie leaving his mark whenever he can.

  8. Twitter:
    Hey Sire,

    Thanks for the Love buddy.

    I really the idea of giving first, if you hope to get some reciprocation … you’re definitely a 1st class example of the concept in action.

    .-= Todd@Earn Extra Income´s last blog ..Can You Get Rich Blogging About Making Money? =-.

    1. No worries Todd. It’s good to see I’m a first class example of something :lol_ee:

  9. One thing to add, If you are a blogger that’s used to make link exchanges here’s the catch. One way links has higher value than two blog blogs linking each other. Search Engines are getting smarter and they have noticed that more people are doing exchange links but still it’s good to have a linkexchange than getting zero linkbacks
    .-= JD@Anime Games´s last blog ..Krazy Aces Opens Close Beta Registration =-.

    1. I think we all know that way links are better JD, but the whole thing about link luv is sharing interesting posts. Also I think there is a difference when linking to a particular post rather than the home page.

  10. That’s right Melvin, thanks for sharing your thoughts.

  11. That is a whole lot of link lurve, great post, now I will check out some links after I’ve rooted around this blog for a while.

    How did I get here? Oh yes Stumble Upon!

    1. It sure was nice of someone to stumble this post, and of you to follow that and leave a comment. I hope you enjoy rooting around the blog too. :tongue_laugh_ee:

  12. haha hilarious video and some great links; I’ve been cataloguing some great posts for my once a blue moon link love post, and why not if you have noting to say point the other great stuff around the world!
    .-= Donace´s last blog ..Free Blog Commenter =-.

  13. Link Love is a great thing not only because you are rewarding great content, but it also adds interaction to the site since most topics are interesting..
    .-= Melvin´s last blog ..Look, We’re Not Idiots Here =-.

  14. Nice work Sire always nice to see bloggers looking out for each other :)
    .-= John Sullivan´s last blog ..Kayne West straight up douchebag =-.

  15. This is a great great post. Sire, you are a real awesome and generous blogger. You also did a great job summarizing and giving those links some extra description.
    .-= Ron@Boracay Hotels´s last blog ..Accommodation In Boracay 7 Great Tips =-.

  16. The dofollow directory has potential to be a very useful resource, thanks for sharing it :)

  17. No worries John and Ste, after all, sharing is caring ;)

  18. Sir, I also liked the idea of Kristi’s “DoFollow Directory” since I firstly heared about it. I hope it will be a central DoFollow resource.
    .-= Hicham´s last blog ..Shine like Gold =-.

  19. I very much enjoyed that “Get more backlinks indexed” post – I’m going to try to implement that advice immediately.

    Thank you so much for sharing that link!
