Hi all, I have a blog at... HTML: www.blastedthing.c0m ....and I'm very proud of it. I write about two articles every day, and it is geared towards providing useful content about Magento, the new E-COmmerce platform which is going to take the world by storm (or so I hope). I have a few friends' sites with decent PR who I've asked to link to me, and submitted my sites via numerous directory listing services, and I'm currently PR 0 although I do think (and am hoping) this will rise. I am proud of my blog, therefore I am very dubious about using BH techniques as I often feel that it can degrade the quality. Things I am definitely not going to be in to is article rewriting - my content needs to make sense for a start. But I am interested in the latent techniques that can be applied to boost visitor numbers, boost my PR, increase backlinks, but above all - increase income etc. At the moment the only BH technique I am using is stuffing, and it will only stuff the user if they match a few criteria - directly visiting my site for instance won't stuff your browser. This is resulting in a decent income via an affilliate. I won't talk much about that though just yet Esentially, I consider article spinning to be a technique done by people who don't particularly care about the content on their blog, and whose blog might easily be forgotten in a years time - I am not one of those. However, I am open to BH techniqes, just need to know which ones (and WH ones), you can recommend, for a short term solution in improving my blog. Any tips would be useful, but my first question is this - which social networking/bookmarking sites do I need to be joining, and what do I need to do? Will anyone give a toss about Magento??
