How to use social media websites (MySpace, Facebook, Digg, StumbleUpon) to promote your blog posts posted on 09/10/2008
You may have noticed the small icons at the bottom of your blog posts linking to MySpace, Facebook, Digg, Stumble Upon and other social media websites. These icons allow you to quickly link your blog post to these sites. You should be using these links a lot. Submitting to social media sites is free and easy and can really increase the traffic to your blog. Consistently using them is the easiest way to build a following and increase your traffic.
Using the Facebook and MySpace links:
Assuming you have an account on MySpace or Facebook (it's free to join so if you don't sign up now) click on the icon below your blog post for the site you want to submit to. It will take you to a submission page where you simply put in a brief description about your blog post. Then, a link to your blog post will appear on your Facebook or MySpace profile. It's that easy. If you have a large following on either of these sites it's an easy way to get people to your sports blog. So make sure you submit links to your best sports blog posts.
Headlines Widget updated to include your blog posts posted on 08/16/2008
We've added some additional functionality to our " Headline Widget" so that our bloggers can now promote their blog posts through the widget. Simply go the "Headline Widget" page, type in your username in the appropriate blank, and copy the HTML to any webpages (i.e. your MySpace profile page or your personal blog) where you want your blog posts to appear.
The " Headline Widget" can be customized to display in any color and it comes in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Important: The widget is geared towards displaying headlines and blog posts for a particular sport or team, so if you want the widget to display all of your blog posts no matter what the subject of the blog post is, be sure to choose "All Sports Headlines" for the first customization option.

A big thanks to everyone who participated in the "Inbound Link Contest". We have a winner! A big congratulations go out to Marija. Thank you for all your hard work on this. While we had a lot of people participate, Marija was able to win with only 4 links! So it wouldn't have taken a lot to win this contest! We'll be having another contest soon so stay tuned.
The whole purpose of this contest was to get our bloggers networking with other webmasters and to start to build up their inbound links which will help their traffic. Even a few links can help you with the search engines as they will see you as more of an authority on your topic the more inbound links you have.

How can I increase traffic (and revenue) to my blog? posted on 07/16/2008
Building a loyal following on your blog isn't going to be easy. It's going to take some time. And while our network of sports sites does get substantial traffic and you will benefit from that traffic, in order to turn your blog into something that makes $100, $200, $1,000 or even $5,000 per month it is going to take a lot of work on your part. It's not going to be easy. But hopefully it'll be fun.
As a blogger the most important thing you can do is write quality content. This builds readership. Quality content also gets linked to from other sites. If a person reads your post and they run a blog, they are quite likely to post a link to your blog because they like your blog and think their readers will like it too.
But after writing you will need to be proactive in trying to market your blog. The single biggest misconception about the internet is the old saying "if you build it they will come." This is simply not the case. As a rule you should be spending almost as much time marketing your blog as you do actually writing blog posts. This comes as a surprise to people, but if you really want to earn money from your blog this is the truth. Keep in mind that making money from your blog is not mandatory. If you just want to write about sports and don't care about the money, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Writing can be fun, educational, and very therapeutic - which is reward enough. But if you want to try and turn your ability to write into money, read through the rest of this post.
