One way links, the reward you get for great content and creativity at the blogosphere. You’ll do anything for it isn’t it? (The title was only an eye-catcher, so relax..)
Well, an idea just popped into me, while I was reading Michael Martine’s blog. Michael has a list of testimonials written on one of his sidepanels, and it has links to people who wrote it. It is on the homepage and has excellent screen presence. Get the idea??
Yes, writing testimonials about other bloggers would be one great way to get quality incoming one way links. No expense, no trick, nothing evil!
But what you need to be careful about is,
- Whom you are writing for.
Don’t go around writing testimonials for ever tom,*(beep)*, and harry. Write quality ones for the really good guys.
- Do they accept testimonials?
You can write testimonials only if some one is accepting them isn’t it? Find bloggers who accept testimonials, or who are likely to accept a testimonial.
- Don’t flatter them,but write a testimonial
Don’t simply go ahead and flatter them, it would create a negative image for you. Test their services/read their blog and go for a sincere review. I’m sure many of the professional bloggers would accept honest criticism that will help them grow. Anyone can make out flattery from the rest.
- Ask them a link back
If it’s got to be a win-win situation, ask them for a link back. There’s nothing wrong in it. If they are impressed with your testimonial, they’d be happy to link back.
Hey, anybody care to write a testimonial about DailySEOblog? What ? No takers?
