My SEO Gal is having it's very first Blog Hop of many To come!
I'm so excited that we made the decision to get together and start a blog hop.
Our first blog hop will start on October 5,2009.
How To Sign Up to Participate in our Blog Hops:
All you have to do to enter into the hop is enter your blog name and blog url below in our
Mck Linky box located below and your site will show up in the box. Click on the Enter Your Blog Url Here link, then Leave a comment below
that says you will be participating.
Then add a post to your blog about the hop, you have the option to include a
prize and post your rules.
Come back and get the code for your blog or copy the code as soon as you enter in your
blog's information and add the code to your Blog Hop post. You get the code by
Clicking on the link under the Mck Linky box below that says Want to participate
in this blog? Get instructions here.
You can use this wonderful image designed for our Blog Hop
by Jen at by J Bee Designs and place it at the top of your blog post or on the
side navigation of your blog so all can see.
Make sure to upload the image to your computer first then upload it to your blog.
Here's a great example of a Blog Hop:
1 – What is a blog hop?
Hop, hop, hop… that’s right! Imagine a themed blog posting in which many other
bloggers are posting the same theme, with a list of participating bloggers links on
that post that will allow you to HOP to other blogs and see the exact same theme,
however different content. For example: Let’s say this week the theme given
to us is “My favorite picture”. Everyone in the blog hop group will post their
favorite picture and content and at the end of the blog, will post an HTML code
that will have a list of all the blog hoppers. In this case, if I go to my blog,
I’ll see a post of my favorite picture, my content and a list of all the participating
bloggers. So, I can click on another blogger’s link and see their
favorite picture...and then just hop from blog to blog……..
Everyone participating may insert the same HTML code so that we
will all have the same blog hop list displayed. That way, the
visitor will know which ones they have visited and which
ones still remain to be seen…
Now the question is….
2 – Why should I participate?
Exposure… !!! This is a creative and new way to increase
the exposure of your blog, by receiving traffic from your
fellow Blog Hoppers and from the visitors.
It’s FUN and addicting. Think of our example. Wouldn’t you want to see what everyone’s favorite picture was? And wouldn’t you want to click on all the links to see what
they were? And if you found the blog interesting, with interesting articles, wouldn’t
you stop and read?
Increase your blog’s traffic AND get more followers by participating in this program.
It’s a win, win situation.
3 – I want to participate, but I don’t know HTML….
That’s fine!!! The HTML code (Mr. Linky) will be given to you,
and if you have questions as to how to add the code, you can

Contact US and get assistance. Don’t miss out on this great opportunity.
If you have additional questions in regards to this program, please
e-mail Contact Me Otherwise….
