John Chow of John Chow dot Com is giving link to blogs that review him.
He is asking for a link to his home page and the review rules page with the keywords "make money online" in the anchor text for both links.
This post is also a lesson on the importance of linking with keywords or phases. In the Evil Nintendo Wii Blog Contest, I asked people to link to me using “root of all evil.” If you do a Google search for that phrase, you’ll see I am now ranked number three, just behind Wikipedia and RootOfAllEvil.com.
While it’s fun to rank for root of all evil, not many people search for that phase. However, according to the Overture keyword selector tool, there are over 44,000 searches every month for make money online. If I can get on page one of Google for that phrase, it would mean a flood of new traffic.
Here is my review of his blog:
I have no idea how I found it. In fact, I still do not have it bookmarked, even though I subscribed to the feed. Perhaps it was from Problogger.net.
I like the style of his posts.
I enjoy reading it. I think it has gotten me to post a bit more often just by reading it.
Even though I have had this blog for what is approaching a year now, I am learning a few things from him and his blog.
I like the sense of community his blog has.
I think the Weblog images have helped develop that sense of community. It was interesting to see who else was at the same page recently (I saw Yaro’s Weblog picture near mine). I have since added Weblog to my blog here and will be adding it to other WordPress sites I have.
While I have heard the word Algloco around, I had never stopped to look at it. I do not think it is for me, but I learned something about it at John Chow dot Com. It was even interesting to read.
John posts quite often.
Most of the posts are completely original. He does not just give a link to another site, say it has an interesting post, and leave it at that. While I have only been reading his blog seriously for a few days and off and on for a few weeks, nearly every post he has made had been of reasonable length, and still interesting.
Right now, I am going to be following John’s blog and sooner or later I will remember to bookmark it. I would recommend anyone trying to make money online to read his blog and learn what he is doing right, and follow it.
