The ‘Z-List’

24 12 2006

I quite often enjoy a good bout of ‘tag surfing’ to come across some new blogs. In one of my surfing evenings I stumbled on several blogs all discussing the ‘Z-List’

The idea is simply to create and update a list of blogs, in hopes of increasing traffic to your own site. Brilliant.

Although the Squidoo List is mostly professional writers and marketing/business related sites I wanted to support their efforts for increasing traffic. . . . .I love a good social experiment.   (I’ve put a button on my sidebar)

Instructions: So there you go! If you’re late to the game and want to play, simply cut and paste the long list above (or below in the case of my blog! *Joey)  into a blog post, then add whatever blogs you want of your own, and that’s it! Then whoever reads your post can repost your list, and add any blogs they want, and it continues to snowball from there! You’re doing your part to bring attention to blogs that deserve it, and turning Technorati’s ‘authority’ rankings on its ear 😉 And you’ll more than likely get a whole slew of new links and a nice traffic bump too. Everyone wins!

No problem. . . . .

This is such a cool idea. . . . .

I’m hoping my ‘personal’ website gets to ride on some coat tails as it were. . . .

Thanks for stoping by 🙂

Hey Joey, thanks for continuing to spread the Z-list. It certainly is an interesting social experiment — and it is nice to see it breaking out of the strict marketing/business category.
