My Old Article on Problogger and Seo Techniques
PROBLOGGER Darren Rowse BLOG NETWORKS SOCIAL BOOKMARKING SITES DIGG
I HAVE BEEN A REGULAR READER OF PROBLOGGER BY DARREN ROWSE FOR OVER AN YEAR NOW BUT FROM TIME TO TIME I FELT EVERYTHING IS NOT AS SIMPLE AS DARREN HAS WRITTEN OR IS QUITE DIFFERENT BUT I ALWAYS THOUGHT THIS MIGHT BE A DIFFERENCE OF OPINION AND OTHERWISE PROBLOGGER BLOG BY DARREN ROWSE IS QUITE A GOOD ONE.
BUT IT WAS AFTER SOME TIME I HAD REALIZED THE IMPORTANCE OF BLOG NETWORKS LIKE DIGG AND NETSCAPE AND ALSO OF SOCIAL BOOKMARKING SITES ETC AND WAS ADDING MY POSTS TO DIGG I REALIZED THERE WERE AT LEAST THREE ACCOUNTS OF DARREN OR OF HIS EMPLOYEES ETC IN DIGG AND WAS QUITE SURPRISED AS DARREN USE TO GENERALLY WRITE AGAINST BLOG NETWORKS-THAT THEY ARE OF LITTLE USE ETC.
THOUGH I DIGESTED THIS AND MOVED ON, I WAS IN FOR A SHOCK WHEN I FOUND PROBLOGGER DARREN HAD ACCOUNTS IN INDIAN BLOG NETWORK INDIANPAD AS WELL AND HE HAD WRITTEN ON ONE OF HIS POSTS THAT DON'T SPEND TOO MUCH TIME ON BLOG NETWORKS.
ITS NOT ONLY DARREN ROWSE BUT ALSO A LOT OF OTHER SO CALLED A LIST BLOGGERS LIKE AMIT OF DIGITAL INSPIRATION WHO WRITE AGAINST BLOG NETWORKS BUT THEMSELVES USE THEM.
ONE OF THE POSSIBLE REASONS FOR SUCH A THING MIGHT BE THE BIG BLOGGERS REALIZE THAT NEW BLOGGERS WHO CAN WRITE GOOD CONTENT AND ALSO KNOW IMPORTANCE OF BLOG NETWORKS COULD GIVE THEM TOUGH COMPETITION AND HENCE WANT TO CREATE AN IMPRESSION THAT BLOG NETWORKS ARE OF LITTLE IMPORTANCE AND CONTINUE THEIR DOMINANCE.
OTHER THINGS I HAVE NOTICED ABOUT SO CALLED A LIST BLOGGERS IN RECENT TIMES IS THAT THEY ARE LINKING MORE OFTEN TO EACH OTHER AND A GREATER DEGREE OF UNDERSTANDING BETWEEN THEM LIKE WRITING ABOUT EACH OTHER,SHARING CONTENT,USING SIMILAR KEYWORDS ETC.
ALL THIS SEEMS TO BE A RESULT OF THE FEAR IN THE MINDS OF BIG BLOGGERS AS A RESULT OF GROWING IMPORTANCE OF BLOG NETWORKS, SOCIAL BOOKMARKING SITES,BLOG COMMUNITIES AND DIRECTORIES.
As we move on with our lives and with time we learn several things.
Now I realize some of these accounts may be owned by people not associated with Problogger in any way and I may have been wrong.
