On Canadian Personal Finance Opinions yesterday I posted an article posted Posting Number 1000 which effectively was the Favorites page from my web site. What actually happened was I started with the Favorites web page, saw that it was woefully lacking in content, so I expanded it with my favorite Pillar Posts and then posted it as a normal article. This one article caused my hits to hit it’s highest level since I have moved the web site from blogspot but not giving my biggest income day, but that will come with readership is my guess. I keep wondering what I can do about these 1000 posts I have and how I can make them all try to make money for me in some fashion or another, because right now, they seem to be hidden behind the Wall that is my front page, how do I get my readers to “drill down” and find more of my content? Need to look into this further.
Yesterday I found a Beta plug in that I have tried, but it is not quite working correctly called Pingcrawl. I am trying it again today and we shall see what it does:
Every time you make a post on your blog it grabs similar posts from other blogs that allow pingbacks using the post tags. It then links to them at the bottom of the post as similar posts. It then executes the pingback on all the posts. You can specify how many posts to do per tag and that many will be done for each tag you use in your posts. Typically it has about an 80% success rate with each pingback and they are legit so the ones that fall into moderation tend to get approved. This creates quite a few deep links for each blog post you make and through time really helps with your link building. Especially for new blogs.
It hasn’t worked for me yet, but I am still trying.
