I Will Send You Tweets of DoFollow Blogs

I will be sending Twitter Tweets of blogs in the Followlist.com DoFollow Blog directory that I have verified to be DoFollow. This is good news for you if you are looking for DoFollow blogs to comment on.

I have made another change to the Followlist.com DoFollow Blog Directory.

I will be sending Twitter Tweets of blogs in the directory that I have verified to be DoFollow.

This is good news for you if you are looking for DoFollow blogs to comment on.

Unfortunately, some blogs in the DoFollow list are actually nofollow blogs. In order to cleanup the directory and weed out dead blogs and nofollow blogs, I have asked users to report those blogs as they come across them.

In addition, I am randomly reviewing blogs in the directory a number of times a day. As I come across valid dofollow blogs, I will tweet you about them. If they are not dofollow, I will be suspending them.

So, when you follow my Twitter Tweets, you will know that blogs mentioned in those tweets have been verified as being dofollow.

If you have a blog in the DoFollow Blog Directory that has been verified to be a dofollow blog, I will be tweeting your blog.

Initially, I thought about tweeting new blogs as they were submitted to the Followlist.com dofollow blog list, but that would not have been fair to those who have been a member of the list for some time.

So, I will be randomly choosing blogs throughout the day that are dofollow and are family appropriate. All dofollow blogs will be tweeted about once, until all are done, and then I will start the process again.

So, follow me at http://twitter.com/dofollowblogs and keep a look out for your blog.

By the way, if you discover that your blog is no longer in the directory, it is probably because it was tagged as a nofollow blog. The database still contains your blog information, and your blog can be added back into the dofollow list if you make your blog dofollow. Just contact me at my Helpdesk and let me know your blog is now dofollow and provide me with your blog link. If I verify that your blog is dofollow, I will add it back into the directory.

Please Report Non DoFollow Blogs

You can now report blogs in the followlist.com dofollow blog directory that are nofollow blogs. This will help make the Followlist.com DoFollow Blog Directory, the best DoFollow Blog Directory – and keep it free!

This has been a little late in coming, but you can now report blogs, in the Followlist.com DoFollow Blog Directory, that are not dofollow.

Since it is impossible for me to monitor all the blogs in the directory, I need your help flagging those blogs. Below each blog, you will see a “Report Blog As DoFollow or Inappropriate” link.

Clicking on this link will open a new window that will allow you to submit that blog for review. I will then review the blogs and either suspend them from the blog list, or okay them as being dofollow and appropriate.

Suspended blogs will no longer be shown in the directory. Blogs that I okay will remain in the directory, but will have been identified as having been reported in the past.

As you are visiting blogs in the dofollow blog list, please report blogs that are nofollow, are not family friendly, or go to a dead site.

When flagging a site you think it is nofollow, please make sure you have actually looked at comments on the blog and have made sure those comments are indeed nofollow.

Here are some ways to find out if the blog comment links are dofollow or nofollow.

Thank you for your help in making the Followlist.com DoFollow Blog Directory, the best DoFollow Blog Directory – and keeping it free!

New DoFollow Blog List Widget

I have just added a dofollow blog list widget to my blog, and you can get the widget too. You can see the widget in the left column.

New DoFollow Blog List Widget

I have just added a dofollow blog list widget to my blog, and you can get the widget too.  You can see the widget in the left column.

Actually, the dofollow blog widget is my own creation.  It takes dofollow blogs that are listed in the dofollow blog directory, and randomly displays 7 dofollow blogs of the day.

You can get the same widget to put on your blog by simply clicking on “Get Widget” at the bottom of the widget.  Then simply copy the widget code, login to your admin panel, goto Design, Widgets, select where you want the widget (this will vary depending on what WordPress theme you are using).  Then select a “Text” widget to add a text widget, and paste the code into the widget.

That may sound complicated but it’s really not if you have installed any widgets at all.  If you need help with that, let me know and I can create a video explaining how to do WordPress widget installation.

Why would you want to use this dofollow blog list widget?

If you don’t have a dofollow blog, but you are commenting on dofollow blogs, you can use this widget to make posting on dofollow blogs easier.  You can install this widget on your blog, then visit your blog daily, and click on each widget blog link to go to that blog and post comments.  Instead of going through the work of finding dofollow blogs, they are listed right there in the widget.

If you prefer to not install the widget on your blog, you can just bookmark this blog and come back each day to do your daily dofollow blog comment posting.

There is really no reason not to install the widget on your blog.  It’s Javascript so the search engines will not see the widget, or it’s out going links.

By installing the dofollow widget on your blog you can help spread the word about the DoFollow Blog Directory and more people will add their blogs to the directory, which will result in you getting more dofollow blogs to comment on.

If you do have a dofollow blog, you should first make sure you have your blog listed in my do-follow blog directory.  Then your blog will be displayed in the widget randomly as dofollow blog of the day.

You can then help spread the word about the widget by installing it on your blog.  This will result in your blog being seen more often through the widget, as the widget spreads, bringing you more visitors.

If you need help with, or have questions about, the dofollow blog list widget, please leave them in the comments.

Dofollow Blog Incoming Links

Do dofollow blog incoming links from bad neighborhoods negatively affect page rank? This is a really a follow up to my last post about Dofollow Blogs and Page Rank.

Do dofollow blog incoming links from bad neighborhoods negatively affect page rank?

This is a really a follow up to my last post about Dofollow Blogs and Page Rank.

One thing that was mentioned on the blog I refer to in that post, was that page rank may have been negatively affected because of incoming links from other websites that Google may not like – many times called “links from bad neighborhoods”.

It appears the her dofollow blog ended up on some forums, and on some blogs, in dofollow blog lists. You can do a search on Google and find a number of blogs and forums that contains lists of dofollow blogs. You receive a link back to your blog, which you would think is a good thing.

And it probably is a good thing unless Google sees this a something like a link farm, or a site that sells links – something bad that Google doesn’t like. This could result in a link to your blog that is not desirable.

————————–

Side Note:

Many times there lists are not accurate regarding nofollow vs dofollow. Plus, you did not request to have your blog be put on these lists, and it may be difficult getting of the list if you wanted to.

With my DoFollow Blog Directory you place your blog in the directory, I don’t search for dofollow blogs and add them to the directory. The only way you can get in the directory is to initiate it yourself.

You also get to choose your desired link text, you give your blog a description and you choose a category for you blog. This adds much more value to your blog than just some link on a blog or forum.

————————–

So, could being on these lists negatively affect your Google page rank? Good question, and I don’t know.

I have heard that links from bad neighborhoods to your site will not count against you, and also not count for you. This would make the most sense and I hope that’s how Google handles these situations.

If Google counted these bad neighborhood links against you, that could cause some real problems. For example, let’s say you are a devious low life scoundrel – I know this is not true, but the is a hypothetical “what if”.

YOu have a website related to Golf Clubs and you are number 5 on the first page of Google. Of course you want the number one spot, so you devise a devious plan to get that coveted spot.

So, you find a number of bad neighborhood spots on the internet, and you start placing links to your top 4 competitors sites on those websites. Google starts noticing all these bad incoming links and starts dropping your competitors. Your site rises to the number one spot on Google for golf clubs and you win.

But wait, another devious scoundrel knows the same low life strategy that you do, and starts placing links to you on bad sites and knocks you out of the game.

As you can see, this would create a lot of chaos. So, even though bad incoming links won’t help you, I don’t believe they will hurt you either.

I don’t think you need to be concerned about dofollow blog incoming links from bad neighborhoods. But, why not get incoming links from good neighborhoods like the Dofolow Blog Directory.

Backlinks From The DoFollow Blog Directory

Now you get another dofollow backlink from the FollowList.com dofollow blog directory – and you don’t have to do anything to get it. If your blog is not dofollow yet, it should be. You can find out more about dofollow blogs here.

Now you get another dofollow backlink from the FollowList.com dofollow blog directory – and you don’t have to do anything to get it 🙂

If your blog is not dofollow yet, it should be. You can find out more about dofollow blogs here.
After you have changed your blog to dofollow, I suggest you add it to my dofollow blog directory.

Adding your blog to the directory will help those looking to post on your blog, find your blog. Plus you get a dofollow backlink from the directory.

DoFollow Blog Directory
Now, when you add your blog to my dofollow blog directory, you will also get a dofollow link from EFixx.com.

EFixx.com is a social bookmarking, voting site similar to Digg, that is dofollow enabled.

All blogs in the FollowList blog directory are automatically being imported into the EFixx.com, DoFollow Digg Clone. You don’t have to do anything, this is being done automatically.

DoFollow Digg Clone

Note: If you don’t see your blog in the EFixx.com listings, it just means it hasn’t been imported yet, but it will. I want the EFixx Digg clone service to import the blogs slowly, over time, to appear as natural as possible, to get Google to love it – making your backlink more valuable.

I have big plans for your links in the dofollow blog directory, adding them to EFixx is just the first step. I have plans to have them added to several other Digg clone sites (maybe even your own Digg clone site) to increase your backlink exposure.

By the way, feel free to add all your blog posts to EFixx.com, to get a backlink to those posts. You simply register at the DoFollow Digg Clone site and submit links to your blog posts, articles, and even your websites.

Next time I will need to talk about getting the most from the data you provide the dofollow blog directory.

A Simple Backlink Strategy

As you know, one good way of building backlinks is by posting on dofollow blogs. This is one of my favorite strategies, that’s why this blog exists and why I created my DoFollow Blog Directory. Because I am always interested in building backlinks, a post by Alex Sysoef caught my eye.

As you know, one good way of building backlinks is by posting on dofollow blogs. This is one of my favorite backlink strategies, that’s why this blog exists and why I created my DoFollow Blog Directory.

Because I am always interested in building backlinks, a post by Alex Sysoef caught my eye. He has a great post, Build Oneway Backlinks Through Influence Guide, that contains a video he did that shows another way to build backlinks.

This video has a couple of great tips on how to use Google and Google Alerts to notify you when someone links to your blog. His strategy is to reciprocate by doing something in return for the link – like Stumbling or Digging the post that links to him.

This has two benefits:
1. Gives you a chance to use the law of reciprocity
2. Can bring you more traffic as you Stumble and Digg those posts linking to you.

This is one of those simple strategies that makes so much sense that you wonder why you didn’t think of it yourself.

You can implement this simple backlink strategy today – it will only take a few minutes of your time.

Now there are more reasons to add your do-follow blogs to the do-follow blog directory.

Social marketing, or sometimes called Web 2.0, is becoming the path to marketing online in 2008. Internet marketing is becoming more about relationship building and community building. That’s why your blog is do-follow right?

Okay, if your blog is not do-follow, it needs to be – here is more information on going dofollow with your blog .

One of the cornerstones of building communities is building your social network. There are a number of online social community services like Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, FriendFeed and a whole lot more.

The Do-Follow Blog Directory now displays your social profile with your blog listing. The social services include Twitter, Friendfeed, YouTube, Facebook, StumbleUpon and MyBlogLog.

Now when Do-Follow Blog Directory visitors look for blogs to post comments on, they will see the icons for some of the favorite social networking services. When they click on one of those icons, they will be taken to your profile on the particular service.

Your visitors can the follow you, join your community, become your friend, or view your videos.

This is just another tool to help you expand your reach. If you are not already a member of the Do-Follow Social Networks, I suggest you join those listed below, and start becoming involved with these communities.

If you have a do-follow blog, I suggest you add it to my do-follow blog directory so people looking for do-follow blogs, to comment on, can find you.

I have added my blogs, and have had a good number of hits to them already, and I have done very little advertising of the followlist site so far.

If your blog is not do-follow, I suggest you change your blog to dofollow. You can find information on this blog on how to change your blog to do-follow.
