It’s called “link love”
Bloggers create a link to another blogger’s post as a reference or to show gratitude.
Some bloggers will spend many hours adding links to posts.
You’ve seen them, “100 links to the best of …..”
I did one of those too, it was titled: “1066 Links, Lessons or Tips For Bloggers”
I need to update my Blogging Buddies page. That’s the page (in my header) where I provide a link to each person’s blog, who took the time to leave a comment on either of my blogs.
Earlier today I spent two hours grabbing links. I will be adding approximately 70 more sites to the list. Since I do a short recap of what each blog is about, it’s still a work in progress.
In my daily posts, I often add a link or two, and I always add links when I introduce the “New blog Of The Week” (NBOTW).
Linking out is a great way to share our finds with readers.
I often wonder, in this effort to show link love, do the links earn clicks?
Do you add links to your posts?
Do you click on links in blog posts you read?
Can a blogger overdo it with links?
Is it link love if no one clicks? Or the “linkee” doesn’t acknowledge the link?
