I see a lot of useless links to my blog. Every day i follow these links i see around a hundred other links. I think entrecard is partly to blame, but some of these idiots are linking like crazy just for the fun of it. Even if a blog doesn’t have good stats, the links should be guarded. Links are valuable. Bloggers should take better care of linking to other blogs. Sending out mass links in a single post, doesn’t do much. All that link juice is divided. A dollar is pretty good. But when you divide a dollar by a hundred, you’re only left with a penny. Not very good for making money with your blog is it.
When a blog links to my blog, i always go check it out. I try to leave a comment. If i see that the blogger is linking to every Tom, Dick, and Harry, i won’t feel very special. So if you’re a holiday link maniac, or an entrecard linker, know that your links mean very little. The value of your link dies if you’re giving it away like the high school slut. Links should be special. I learned in high school econ that value is created by scarcity. I could keep going on and on about this, but you guys should already know the value of your links. I mentioned it before. Tupac said it best, “lasy tease me, cause i don’t want it if it’s that easy.” Words to live by. Or should i say words to blog by. hee hee.
