Every now and again I come across a really good fly fishing blog – great content, good photos and started fairly recently. By recently I mean maybe in the last 6 months – usually the blog is on blogger as that is where most people start out before moving on to a platform that you can have a bit more control over like wordpress.
Obviously they know what a blog is and what they want to get out of it however there is often a fundamental flaw in their whole strategy – they have absolutely no links to any other blog – or if they do have links it is to blogs or sites that also have limited links. Sure – some sites and blogs can get away with that as they are just so awesome however the chances of a new blog pulling in punters without any links are pretty slim.
You see links on blogs are like veins that bring you readers – just like blog comments – if you leave a good comment on someone else’s blog they are bound to come back and read yours and then link to it – it is a courtesy thing.
If noone is linking to you then it also makes it difficult for google to find you!
Anyone know any good fishing blogs with no links?
