Sometimes it takes several hints / nudges until the message sinks in, at least in my case 😉 As I posted my “cry for help” with the Oes tsetnoc Seo Contest I actually didn’t thought that a lot of my readers would response and take the time to link to it or promote my entry otherwise, but you did! But this blog post is not so much about my entry, it is about what I learned from it.
After updating my contest page, I did my usual surfing the blogosphere to visit some blogging friends and I noticed a ?new? trend that I nicknamed spontaneously “pay it forward SEO”. Instead of always the same people linking to each other, they were linking out to bloggers they have not linked before to, or at least not much 😉
One thing I read was Todd’s blog post about his intention / project to “help others to promote” their great blogs and blog posts. And then it clicked!
Lets do Pay it forward SEO!
We all know of great blogs and web sites that could do with a helping hand. Blog posts that make us laugh, that help us and / or blog posts that we simply like to recommend to our own readers. By including one single link to it in each post, by re-tweeting or by promoting it otherwise, we can do “Pay it forward Seo”. One blog that I think could do with such a promotion is AdventureRobs, I liked especially his article -and his photos-, where he explains how to build your very own BBQ grill from scratch and how to grill a kangaroo! The later one, thankfully without photos 😉
What do think and do? Do you take time out of your busy blogger life to help others to promote their blog posts or do you have too much to do in promoting your own? Me, myself and I want to know. Not to mention my ravid readers. (Ok, ok, I read / watch to much HP lately ;-))
