Help Make Blogs More Visible!

There are by some estimates more than a million weblogs. But most of them get no visibility in search engines. Only a few "A-List" blogs get into the top search engine results for a given topic, while the majority of blogs just don't get noticed. The reason is that the smaller blogs don't have enough links pointing to them. But this posting could solve that. Let's help the smaller blogs get more visibility!

This posting is GoMeme 4.0. It is part of an experiment to see if we can create a blog posting that helps 1000's of blogs get higher rankings in Google. So far we have tried 3 earlier variations. Our first test, GoMeme 1.0, spread to nearly 740 blogs in 2.5 days. This new version 4.0 is shorter, simpler, and fits more easily into your blog.

Why are we doing this? We want to help thousands of blogs get more visibility in Google and other search engines. How does it work? Just follow the instructions below to re-post this meme in your blog and add your URL to the end of the Path List below. As the meme spreads onwards from your blog, so will your URL. Later, when your blog is indexed by search engines, they will see the links pointing to your blog from all the downstream blogs that got this via you, which will cause them to rank your blog higher in search results. Everyone in the Path List below benefits in a similar way as this meme spreads. Try it!

Instructions: Just copy this entire post and paste it into your blog. Then add your URL to the end of the path list below, and pass it on! (Make sure you add your URLs as live links or HTML code to the Path List below.)

Path List
1. Minding the Planet
2. Luke Hutteman's public virtual MemoryStream
3. (your URL goes here! But first, please copy this line and move it down to the next line for the next person).


(NOTE: Be sure you paste live links for the Path List or use HTML code.)

I'm starting to get the feeling that we need more blogs visible in search results for "Ponzi Scheme."

And so dies the usefulness of google, as blogs turn linking from being a rank of 'usefullness' to a pyramid-scheme personality contest...

Wow, this is a horrible thing to do. It combines all the great features of chain letters and google spamming into one little package. If you want your blog to get noticed, try frequently writing content that lots of people care about.

Bad idea - if even more blogs start taking over the google rankings then it's gonna get even harder to find useful info from web pages. Whenever I'm searching for dev help I have to wade through several pages of junk blog entries which mention the keywords spread across a dozen postings but with no real content.

While a blog directory would be useful and allow me to find more blogs on topics I'd find interesting, forcing them into google just depreciates the value of google yet further.

I think blogs should be noticed, however, not at the cost of making some "unnatural" modifications to them in order to bust their importance and increase traffic. Ohhh, btw, read my blog http://www.tomkitta.com :)

I don't think blogs cause a lot of noise in Google. I actually find the posts useful many times, because you can often find a person with the same problem as yourself. Think of all the information that has been published because of blogs. I would rather have too much information, than none at all.
