You’ve probably heard about how having lots of backlinks can give you a huge advantage over your competition on the internet, right?  You’ve probably heard that commenting on blogs, forums and social media sites can give you some really good “Google link juice.”

But do you know how to utilize this strategy effectively?  If not, then you are in for a treat.

In today’s post, I am going to talk about SEO.  Now, I realize that search engine optimization is not for everyone and can be a long, enduring, tedious and hard work.  Yes, I said work.  SEO constantly changes, especially because of our friends over at Google.  They like to keep us on our toes.  Every once in a while, they’ll change their algorithm and if you are not playing the SEO game the right way and doing some blackhat stuff, your site will most likely drop in the rankings.

But that’s a whole other discussion.  Today I want to tell you about a strategy that will help you rank high in Google.  Now, since you are already using the internet, and going to different blogs, forums and social media sites, you should utilize this strategy for your business. Newbies to blogging can learn from these 77 mistakes new bloggers make.

In this post, I am going to focus on blog commenting.  Let’s get right into it.  First, you need to follow couple of common sense rules.

wannanetwork.com closes doorsWannaNetwork.com announced on their blog today that they would be closing the doors on their real estate social network as of September 30, 2009, including their forums, blogs, profiles, and groups. Citing a “plague of vicious spammers,” and a “failure to attain a viable revenue model”, the company explained that they will be transforming the site into a multi-author blog site for the real estate industry.

Unfortunately, our vision to provide a free high traffic real estate social networking solution for industry professionals has attracted the wrong crowd.

Basically, it is a full-time job managing and developing a multi-user blogging platform that is constantly plagued with vicious spammers.

While we have done our absolute best over the past three years to provide our members with a powerful online presence for free, we have ultimately failed at integrating a viable revenue model that will support the evolving demands industry professionals need with online technology.

After weighing the options of either charging for blogs, selling more advertising, or exploring affiliate marketing relationships, we’ve decided to simplify things by moving our few real members to one multi-contributor blogging platform.

Sadly, WannaNetwork isn’t the only site plagued with an overrun of spam. I’m starting to see many of the other major and minor social networks suffer from this as well.
