|Tip 71: Start Tagging Your Blog(s)!
Tagging your Blog is really just another name for social bookmarking,
which allows readers to spread the word by adding your blog to social
bookmarking websites. The more people that do that, the more traffic
you will receive; although, that will only happen if people actually
enjoy reading your blog.
Tagging a blog is a lot easier than you'd think. You don't have to be
expert in HTML or website design to add social bookmarking tags; you
basically just have to know how to copy and paste. Simply place the
code, for the social bookmarking tags, at the bottom of each blog post
and the tags will be seen by the reader.
Still don't have a clue? That's fine, I'll help you out. Look Below and
you'll see some social bookmarking tags. Simply copy & paste the
code and then put it at the bottom of each of your blog posts. You can
even put it on your website if you'd like. That's it, you're done.
Pretty simply, right?
Obviously, there are other, more specific factors when it comes to blog
tagging; but for now, you should just stick to the basics.

If you want to get get involved with even more social bookmarking
websites, then visit the website below. They supply the code for many
different social bookmarking websites free of charge, which should make
your job a whole lot easier.
My theory for social bookmarking and blog tagging is that it is a
simple, yet complicated, process. By that, I mean it's simple to do,
yet complicated to get large amounts of traffic from. Is this a fact?
No, not at all. Like I said, it's just a theory. So, you'll have to do
it yourself and find out if the theory rings true, as well as whether
or not blog tagging works for you.
Quick Note: If you'd like to skip the learning curve completely and get
right into tagging your blog and generating traffic, which is what I
suggest, then I recommend taking a look at "Bookmarking Demon". It's an
extremely helpful software application that will help minimize your
work load and maximize your traffic potential. Take a Look.
Don't want to buy it? Not a problem, as you can do everything manually
on your own time and at your own pace. However, if you happen to value
your time and want to save as much of it as possible, like I do, then I
suggest giving the idea a little bit more consideration. It's great
software and you should at least give it a chance to prove itself.
Tip 72: Don't Just Stop at MySpace, Use Them All!
When I say use "them" all, I'm talking about social networking
websites. Just like MySpace, there are hundreds of websites out there
that people use on a daily basis to communicate with one another. These
people are truly ripe for the picking. All you have to do is get in
touch with them and let them know about your website and it's wonderful
Am I going to tell you how to utilize every one of them? No, sorry.
That would take way too long. Hell, I might as well write an E-book and
then sell it to the masses for a small fee. Instead of doing all that,
I am just going to cut out all the crap and give you a link that lists
all of the most popular social networking websites. You decide on which
ones you want to join and which ones won't work out.
As you can see, not every one of those websites is going to work for
you. You'll have to take some time and judge the target audience of
each of those sites and then try to see if you can actually harness
some of their traffic. If you think you're up to the task, sign up and
start talking to people. After that, well, you should know the rest.
Quick Note: As I have said many times before, never spam. It makes you
look bad, it's unprofessional, and people simply don't like spammers.
Just don't do it.
