A Dofollow Blog List for You?

A while ago I’ve written an article, Checking Whether A Blog is Dofollow or Nofollow? Today I am going to list some dofollow blogs here. Dofollow blogs encourage visitors to get involved with them. On the other hand, If you leave comments with a backlink to your blog on dofollow blogs, it will absolutely increase the number of links to your blog. As a result, it will greatly improve your rankings and traffic.

If you are looking for dofollow blogs to comment on, Do Follow Blog List is a site that will get you started. It allows you to find blogs that are related to your niche to comment on. However, make sure you don’t spam on them. Otherwise, your comments may be deleted.

This post is an ongoing post, meaning I will continue adding more dofollow blogs to this list. If you have a dofollow blog, you can submit it through my Contact, I will add it to the list here. Make sure you provide your dofollow blog’s title, url, and a brief description.

Would you like to comment on these dofollow blogs? Why or why not? Please leave a comment below.

How to Ping Your Blog?

Why do you need ping services? There are many answers for that question. First, it may be that you want everybody to know about your newly posted article(s). Second, by using ping services your blog/website might be indexing right away from search engines. Thus it may be in term increasing your web traffic. If you use self-hosted WordPress blog, then you may follow the steps below to implement ping services.

  • Login to your self-hosted WordPress dashboard and click on Settings/Writing.
  • After that WordPress will automatically ping your blog whenever you publish your new post.

For the WordPress.com bloggers, your blog has already built in with ping service Ping-O-Matic as your default ping service. If you want to manually ping your blog using ping services other than those offered in Ping-O-Matic, then you may find pingmyblog.com useful. It allows you to selectively choose your choices of ping services to submit.

A Signature For Your Blog Post?

Have you ever thought about to add a signature to you blog post? Adding a signature to each post of you blog will no doubt bring your personal touch to your readers. It is an identity of representing you online. Moreover it brings an uniqueness to your blog as well. I was inspired by Lorelle VanFossen’s signature on her blog.

For WordPress.com Blog

I think it is fun to have your own signature for your blog just like you sign your signature in each email. It also serves a purpose: that is something uniquely reflects your personality. I like to do things differently because we are all unique in many ways. So if you are like me, then go ahead to create your unique signature using your desired program. Make sure you save your signature and copy and paste it at the bottom of each post. I use My Live Signature program to create mine here. What do you think?

For WordPress Blog (WordPress.org Blog)

If you have a WordPress blog, you can just download LiveSig v0.4 plugin here to your PC (personal computer). LiveSig: WordPress Plug provides step-by-step instructions of how to install it. Basically you do as follows:

  • Unzip LiveSigv0.4 file that you’ve just downloaded
  • Then upload it to this folder: public_html/wordpress-content/plugins/ using any FTP
  • Then login to your WordPress dashboard, and click on Plugins/LiveSig v0.4 to activate it
  • Finally click on Settings/LiveSig/LiveSig Options. Make sure you select an appropriate user, enter the corresponding MyLiveSignature code and hit Save button to save it

It is Free to obtain MyLiveSignature code, but you need to register in that site to get it. For a small amount of money, you can get animated signature code there too.

Get a Trackback Service for Your Blog

If you don’t know what a trackback service is, you may find out from this post. A trackback service is a mechanism that allows two blogs to communicate each other. Suppose you find an useful article and it is related to what you like to say, so you decide to write about it and link to this article in your post. If both blogs support a trackback service, then you may see your post’s permalink as well as excerpts showing up on the other blogger’s comment section. See the screenshot below:

This is fun since I am always curious of who links back to my blog. It is one way that I can track what post(s) of mine the other bloggers are interested in. Getting a trackback service can help you boost your blog/website traffic too. So it is important that your blog supports a trackback service.

Some blog softwares supporting automatic pinkback service are WordPress, Movable Type, Typo and Community Server. However, Google Blogger still doesn’t support a trackback service yet. Instead it provides a backlink service from Google Blog Search. You may find out how to get a third party trackback service for your Blogger from this article: Get a Trackback Service for Your New Blogger. Learn How?.

As for WordPress.com/WordPress.org blog, go to WordPress dashboard, click on Settings/Discussions/; make sure you tick Allow link notifications from other blogs (pingbacks and trackbacks.) to enable it. See the screenshot below:
