I've posted this short note in other forums (never one to pass up a chance to post and get my sig seen!) and I've just posted a longer version on my blog, bit if you haven't seen it anywhere else, this just highlights the promotional power of blog and ping...
I'd heard about the benefits of pinging a blog every time you update it, but not until the night before last did I see the real power of this mini-phenomenon.
I'vecreated a new website called alt-cures.com but it's not quite ready for me to start advertising it because I haven't added any articles to it yet. There is a good list of affiliate products in their own page on the site, so it's ready to go business-wise. But I wanted to have a few articles sitting in the article database before I began promoting it.
I added a wordpress blog to the site a few days ago and posted a "hello world" first post. Then I pinged it, using the usual ping sites, like king ping, pingoat and the ping service here at The Honest Way, more out of habit than anything else.
Well, the night before last I checked my clickbank account and nearly fell off my chair when I saw I'd made an affiliate sale off that site!
Now, for a brand new website that no-one could otherwise know about, that's a pretty strong endorsement for the power of blog and ping!!!
