Building Traffic Through Community Blogging

July 5th, 2007 · No Comments

Do you blog about any of the following topics?

  • Blogging
  • Making money online
  • Affiliate marketing
  • Social media marketing
  • SEO
  • Website monetization

If the answer is yes then I’ve got some good news for you. There’s a new resource that could potentially drive a lot of traffic to your website. It’s totally free and it will take less than 30 seconds to set up.

Maki from the insanely excellent Dosh Dosh site has set up a content aggregator which pulls all of the latest posts from over 50 sites who focus on the topics of blogging, making money and SEO. Suffering from RSS overload, Maki set up the Megite Dosh Dosh News so that he could track all of the latest news in one place.

The goal of this is to aggregate and consolidate all like-minded and relevant blogs within Dosh Dosh’s niche on one specific webpage for communal monitoring. The reason why I’ve limited it to blogs of a specific topic is because blog posts from these blogs can become fodder for posts on similar blogs.

Some of the sites featured will probably be familiar to you (Copyblogger, Guy Kawasaki, Andy Beard, Pronet Advertising, ProBlogger) but others may be totally new to you and that’s the beauty of the concept. I have discovered a load of sites that share the same interests as me which I had never heard of before.

Dosh Dosh News - Community Blog Aggregator

Maki has created a community of like minded bloggers and an essential resource at the same time. As he says in the quote above, Dosh Dosh News is a great way of finding inspiration for your own posts.

I’ve already started to see some traffic coming my way from the site and I’m sure this will grow as the site becomes more established. In his original post, Maki set a deadline for inclusion but if you blog about any of the topics covered then I’m sure you will still be considered. After all, the whole idea of a community is that it keeps on growing so I’m pretty certain that he will be looking to continue adding great content.
