Leave a trail of "netcrumbs!"
If ya want people to find you, you gotta leave a trail. I like to call them "netcrumbs." Like good ol" Hanzel and Gretel. Leaving a trail will lead more people to you. Imagine if you were cre8ive enough to leave some crumb every where you went on the web. Wow! how much traffic would you see? Now, this isn't an invitation to go out and do something intrusive and muck up someones site, blog ETC. So don't get cute, but think about it. The more places you can leave a calling card, the more hits your site will see.
How can this be done? Hmmmm let me think, Oh yeah, how about comments? Ya gotta give a little to get a little. I can't tell you enough what a great way it is to leave a crumb, than a simple comment. I talked about this earlier, so if altruistic and just being nice aren't good enough, then maybe a selfish reason might spur you on. Either way, leaving a comment says, "Hi, I have been here and this is where you can find me if you would like." I have gotten a number of my visitors this way! You want another? OK. Respond to comments, every comment you get. Do it on their blog, or site and yours. Thank folks for visiting, but be authentic. If not you will be seen as fake and that is even worse! Want another? be a talker! Bring people together. If you know of two blogs that share topics, leave a note on each telling them about the other. Reach out man! Ya gotta give to get. If you use a social networking site like Mybloglog.com visit as many profiles as they leave a netcrumb for you. There are infinite ways to leave a trail. More than my little brain could ever devise. So as you go about your business, ask yourself; how can I let them know I was here?
If anyone has any cool ideas let me know. I will tell others AND let them know it was you with a link back. Let me see some cre8ivity! I know y'all have it!!
