Join Communities on MyBlogLog

July 7, 2007

MyBlogLog Logo If you’ve been reading lately you might know that I’ve written an article on MyBlogLog before, found here. It’s about using MBL effectively, and talks about visiting sites with the recent reader widget installed, having a very noticeable icon, and joining communities. Now I’d like to talk more about joining communities.

I have been joining 15 communities a day (or I try), and this creates so much exposure for me. When you join a community on MyBlogLog, it lists you as a member of that community as your icon and it links to your profile. If people see your icon in the community and click on it, they’ll be taken to your profile, and all they have to do then is click through to your site! I’m very happy to announce that MyBlogLog is now in my top referrers for traffic. Many of the people who visit this blog get here from seeing me on MBL!!

If you want that kind of traffic and exposure, you’ve got to join 15 communities a day (I would join more but 15 is the limit). The more you join, the more you’ll be seen. Especially join the communities that are relevant to your niche, but don’t stop there! I join them all. ;)

If you find it hard to join 15 communities a day, then you can make it a little easier on yourself and let MyBlogLog do all the work for you. By changing one setting, they will automatically join you to all the communities of the sites you show interest in. Here’s how you do it. Go to ‘edit profile’, then scroll all the way down. You will see under preferences something that says ‘join a community after’… Select ’10 page views’. Then after you have viewed any blog 10 times, you will automatically be joined to their community. Fantastic, isn’t it?!

Joining MyBlogLog communities is most effective for getting traffic and exposure, but you can also add people as friends and be shown on their profile as well. You can even use the mass message option for everyone in YOUR community, but a lot of people frown on that and think it’s like spam, so I wouldn’t recommend doing that, but it’s your choice.

The most important thing is just having an interesting, bright icon people will click on. Look at your current icon and ask yourself if it will stand out among the others. If it’s not the most eye-catching, it won’t be the most effective either. Good luck, and please consider visiting and joining the Super Blogging community.

    Meg, thanks for letting me know. I guess it’s a good thing I started proofreading a lot better a few months back. Can’t see how I typed something that made so little sense though! LOL. Thanks again, I’ve edited the post accordingly. :)
