There is one main ingredient you need to make your blog successful and that is TRAFFIC, how do you drive more traffic to your site you ask.

You can use social marketing as a tool to gain that traffic,i.e. getting out there and posting comments on other blogs or forums.
But that can be hard yakka sometimes trolling through the internet[ suffering from information overload is a hazard from this process] looking for sites relevant to your subject. Neil Shearing recently released a programme that lets you do thus with ease and creates a link back to you site at the same time.
A lot of sites have the nofollow tag in them, but this programme looks for those sites that don't .

I was recommended this programme by another professional blogger[more on him in a later post] who has been a big influence in my getting started in blogging. So I've just finished downloading this tool and spent a very interesting hour putting it through it's paces.

I was very pleased with the ease with which you download and activate using a key sent to you via email. Once you have activated it I suggest you increase the number of sites to search to 100, you also just have to enter your subject of interest, then enter your name[it pays to varie it abit now and then], email address and then your web address.
Once you have done all that just press the find button, sit back, relax and enjoy yourself.

You can download this programme from, or go to Neils website at
