Use Blog Carnivals to get Maximum Exposure and Linkage

June 13, 2007

What is a blog carnival?
That’s a great question, for many people don’t know the answer! To tell you the truth, I’ve known about blog carnivals for a couple of months, but I didn’t fully understand them until just a few days ago. I definitely don’t consider myself an expert in this field, but blogging is a learning process, and I intend to do a lot of learning and helping others learn too. :)

Anyway, to answer the question, a blog carnival is not an actual carnival with lions, elephants, acrobats, and clowns. It is actually a type of blogging event. Blog carnivals are published on a regular basis, and a lot of the time each edition is hosted on a different blog (but not always). The publishings can be weekly, monthly, the first Saturday each month, or just anytime the creator wants to.

Why should I enter a blog carnival?

When you submit one of your posts/articles to a carnival, it will most likely be featured in the carnival’s next edition. This way you will not only get a link, but a lot of exposure and people seeing your article! This can help your pagerank, Technorati rank, traffic reach, and more. There are so many advantages, and a lot of people are already in on this secret. You should be, too!

How do I enter a blog carnival?

Just go to BlogCarnival.Com and sign up. Once you’re registered you can browse through all the carnivals and find one that looks right for you. There is a carnival topic out there for everyone, so when you enter, be sure the article you’re submitting is relevant to the carnival. If you have an article that is about making money with blogging, go ahead and please submit it to my first carnival, Tay’s Make Money Blogging Carnival. The first edition will feature the categories blogging tips, generating traffic, search engine optimization, and make money online. It will be hosted here on Super Blogging. So far the first issue is planned for July 20 and submission deadline is July 16. These dates are subject to change, however.

Go ahead and enter as many relevant carnivals you can to get a lot more links, exposure, and people reading your blog! After that, if you’d like to take a spin with being in charge for once, host your own carnival. It’ll be fun. ;)
