Rewarding Top 10 Members Of Cool Blog Links was a post I did way back in March of this year, and was all about rewarding the top 10 members of Cool Blog Links, my free directory of Cool Blogs. I promised then that I would do an update listing the current top ten members and I reckon that this has been a long time coming.
Things have changed over time, some members dropping off and new ones signing up. I reckon for many, the most important change is that Cool Blog Links has a PR1 which isn’t all that bad seeing that I haven’t done any promotion at all.
Before listing the top 10 I would like to invite others to join, as it still ranks #1 for the search term Cool Blog Links. Not to mention that those who list in the top 10 will get featured in the next update, and when you consider that this is a PR4 blog, getting a mention will mean a very important one way link to your blog.
OK, now for the top 10 members.
- So You Want To Be A Banquet Manager: Previously #4 it’s risen to the #1 spot. It’s really a pretty interesting blog about all the things that can happen in a banquet manager’s job. The latest post The Dreaded Wedding Breakfast just goes to show how interesting this job can be.
- Gratis Lagu: I’m afraid I can’t tell you too much about this blog because it’s not in English. I think it’s in Indonesian, but at least the latest post, Digital Karaoke Amplifier VS Mixer Karaoke Amplifier, has an English heading.
- What A Load Of Bullshit: One of my blogs, has risen from #5 to #3. This blog continues to surprise me as it continues to do well in the SERPs as well as being a good earner.
- Work From Home Business Blog: Peter Lees blog is down from #3, but knowing Peter I expect him to creep up again. His latest post, Blog Income and Stats – October 2009, shows how well he is doing.
- WassupBlog: Yep, I’ve risen from #7
- I’m Just Sharing: This is Mitch’s blog, and as usual Mitch and I are continuously fighting to be ahead of the other. It seems that for now I’m in the lead. Mitch’s last post, Do Images Increase Readership?, is about a test he’s doing as to whether or not images in a post will actually increase readership to a blog.
- Expressive World: IS one of the newer members and has already aspired to the top 10 list. Ana, the blogger, is all to do with writing about ‘the gateway to her inner awareness and expressions, her last post AW November Blog Chain 2009: The Art of expressing what is, about a writer’s forum NaNo and Ana’s Writing Survival List.
- Scenic Adelaide: Another of my blogs, has remained static, as in it hasn’t moved since the last post. Like my Load Of Bullshit blog, it does pretty well in the SERPS, as most of the traffic is search engine related.
- Top Sexual Aids: Considering that this is one of my newest blogs I’m surprised it’s in the top 10 at all. Damn, who am I kidding, it’s not all that hard when you only have 14 members.
- Photos 2 Blog: Well, you look at that, another one of my blogs…..that’s two photo blogs in the top 10 that belong to me.
So, that means I have 5 blogs in the top 10, and while I don’t mind being there I wish I had more members to contend with. So what about it guys, why not join and give me some competition. It’s free and perhaps you could be part of the next update.
While it’s free to join, you will require to post a snippet of code on your blog. I have mine in the right side bar. The code will display a small icon which will allow your readers to vote for your blog. Also the top ten blogs will have their ranking displayed in the icon.
