Do you DIY, repairs, or build a blog? If so, your newly built blog could be getting a little too strong for the Internet. So the question is…
You’ve just found out that someone on your newsgroups is being too good of a friend. They are talking trash about your friend and you want to counter them. But you don’t want to accuse your friend, yet.
You try to go to your blog, and it seems like they are already posting about their “idea” about your blog. Or they are leaving comments. Your blog doesn’t have the stats yet, but you know there are probably hundreds of people visiting. How can you convince them to visit your blog?
Blogs work on a site hosting system (or a content management system). Blogs have a way to get your blog to load faster and better. It’s like a delivery man. When he’s pushing up your grocery cart, he’s doing it to help you get the food to your front door in a flash. You don’t notice it then, but his job is done, your order is up on the kitchen counter, and you are thankful.
The same thing goes for the person on your blog who is bashing your friends. A quick and easy way to help them fix their mistakes and get their actions back on track is to set up the front page of your blog to match what their site has. This means that when you post to your blog, you will be able to see which site they are on and if your blog URL is listed in their blog.
Once someone knows you are on their blog, they are more likely to keep reading it because they get excited by the opportunity to connect with their reader. In a world where blogs are getting more popular, sites like these are helping build new networks between bloggers.
Now, here’s where it gets a little technical. There are three ways to do this. The first way is, you could just use your favorite text editor to create a code in your blog that looks like this:
You can even change the index.php so that it looks like this:
Don’t be intimidated by all the code, because it’s really not that bad. It actually provides an opportunity for a lot of benefit. The second way is you could create a dummy blog that resembles your main blog but only has the code changes that you need.
A third way is to build a real dummy blog that has a theme that is similar to your main blog. Then you can copy the HTML code and add it to your main blog in a short time.
These methods aren’t foolproof. Still, if you’ve always been blogging but your blog is getting too popular for comfort, it could be a very good idea to add this technique to your arsenal. It will make your blog easier to navigate for anyone who is using search engines to find your blog.
Whatever method you choose, I hope that you have learned some things in this article and that you’re building your blog based on exactly what you want to accomplish. Remember, it’s all about your blog, so learn how to market it well and all will be well.
