  9. Thanks for the tips, not only are these actually proving useful, you’ve addressed some that aren’t common knowledge. I’ve run across a lot of blog promotion sites and this one is the only one with really unique unorthidox tips. Thanks a lot, hope you keep writing, I’ll be stopping by regularly.

  17. Thats great stuff. It is very useful for blog promotion.

  18. Asking for link exchanging is very difficult and may I say frustrated. I have a blog on relationship and is trying to get in contact with some bloggers to request link exchange. I have emailed 2 people but they replied saying that they would put my link on their sites after I have put theirs on mine. I don’t know if this is how it’s supposed to work?

  19. Very very interesting post – great ideas – i am trying them on and will update the users about the outcome of application of the principles defined here

  20. what the most important is execute what he ideas is come out. actually , few of the ideas i have done, another will be do what the good ideas and brainstorming.
