I'd like to tell you about it and no, I'm not an affiliate, they have no affilate program. I'm only wanting to share this information because it's a real help to anyone trying to improve their standing with search engines (SEO). A lot of us link to one another's blogs within the sidebars, but according to L&B and ProBlogger that isn't effective. What really get's the attention of the search engines are links found within the content of a post along with relevant keywords. So, what we as bloggers need to do is find other bloggers willing to link to us directly from a post... either linking to our blog url or to a permalink (an individual post). Link & Blog was created for just such activity. It's a community of bloggers who link to one another and in the process improve their PR and traffic. If you're participating in PayPerPost or Blogsvertise, you know page rank is important. If you use Google Adsense, you know traffic is important. I really think L&B is a must do for any serious blogger. If you want to read more about link popularity and SEO: http://www.problogger.net/archives/2005/08/15/search-engine-optimization-for-blogs/ If you'd like to learn more about Link & Blog: http://www.linkandblog.com/ The community is small since this site just recently launched... hope to see you there! I joined about a month ago and I'm having fun getting into the challenges. Since blogging is my work from home job, I have found this site to be a real asset to improving my stance with the search engines and in the end helping me gain higher revenues. I hope the same for you!

thank for sharing the information here. I didn't know all about this till i read your post here. I do link exchange with other blogs and never thought that link within a post is more important than link at the sidebar. No wonder Whoever want to have a link back from johnchow.com gotta write a post about johnchow.com and link to his blog using keyword -- make money online. If you search for make money online , you will notice johnchow.com at the frontpage. Again thank for the priceless info. Here's my blog by the way : http://malaysian-agloco.blogspot.com
