Raise Your Blog Ranking Virally

Posted on September 11, 2007 by Blog Design Journal

Viral Reciprocal Carousel is a great free way to raise the ranking of your blog with Technorati and other opinion leaders while getting new blog readers and helping out other bloggers. Sound great? It is.

This system has resulted in great success for many bloggers. Now that it’s starting up again, this is a great chance to join in. After all, no matter how good your blog design is, people have to know about it before they can read it.

Here’s how the Viral Reciprocal Carousel works:

Why this will work

  • It provides value through personal recommendations
  • Links to your blog with linktext of your choice
  • Backlinks come from within a dedicated content about your blog
  • Rotating content will prevent it from penalties from search engines
  • It is viral – more participants means greater effect

How it works

Simply follow these few steps to get it working for you:

  • Create a new post on your blog and start it with a few words about how you came into this carousel.
  • Copy and paste the entire text between the red lines (including the red lines, too).
  • Check if all links are working after copy and paste.
  • Remove the very last recommendation from the list.
  • Add a recommendation for a blog you love to the top of the list with at least 2 to 3 sentences about why you love to read that blog, and add a little note that you recommend it, together with a link to your blog. Here is an example:
