Eric asks a question that caught my attention today – How Does A Niche Blogger Gain Credibility?
He suggest a number of possibilities including:
- The number of comments
- Technorati ranking
- Bloglines ranking
- Alexa ranking
- Quality of the posts
I’d agree that the most important of these is the quality of posts but think there might be a few more. I was going to write a post on it but somewhere in the back of my mind I wondered if I already had so I had a dig around my archives and found I’d actually written a whole series on the topic (and it was only six months ago – my memory is terrible these days).
Here’s the links to my series.
- Blog Design
- 7 More factors in building blog credibility (writing skills, crital mass/readership, participation levels, others opinion, consistency, generosity and transparency).
What would you add? What bloggers do you see as having credibility? Why?
