Get free backlinks! Link Exchange!

By Mohnish On November 4, 2008 No Comments

Sensonize.com isn’t a strong blog as yet, But I thought over this.. and I have finally come out with a solution.  If my readers help me, Sensonize can get PR 3 on the next PR update. This process is pretty simple and clean. Its called “Link Exchange” 😉 . Now, what is link exchange ? Link exchange simply means exchanging links with another website with the permission of the owner. But on Sensonize.. You don’t need my permission 😉 All you have to do is, make a blog post linking to an article on Sensonize.com, thats it! 😀 You will get a free back link to your blog for life, instantly! If you want more of them? Just link more articles on your blog. This proccess is called “Link Exchange” if done manually, or “Trackbacks” if its done my way 😉 More blogs/websites Sensonize.com is linked to stronger it gets and stronger your link with us 😉 If you have back links with strong websites, your PR increases faster and so does your Alexa Rank.

There is another way you could get back links, but these links really don’t matter much to you.. but to the blog your commenting on. Yes, commenting increases the blogs inlinks but doesn’t benefit much to the commenter since its just a 1 way link 🙂

Try your best to get as many trackbacks as possible to get a good PR and quality visitors 🙂 To get you started, we have a contest going on with prizes worth $200! You can blog about our contest and get a free trackback(s) + get points! and who knows.. you might win the contest as well 😉
Note: I have just linked my article to the word “contest” 😀 Check out the comments on the contest article and you will understand what is a trackback 😉

How NOT to Ask for Sponsorship or Advertising: 6 Deadly Mistakes

By Mohnish On October 16, 2008 1 Comment

1. Not using the name of the person. If you want to get someone’s attention, you must make sure that you will address him or her by the name. When people start their email with “Hi Daniel” I will make sure to read it and give it enough attention, cause I know at least that the person on the other side knows who I am.

2. Blatant ass kissing. If you are going to make a compliment, make sure it is genuine. If it is clear that you are just saying that to please the person you are asking something, it will do more harm than good.

3. Crap writing. When you write emails to your friends or relatives, I guess you could be informal and not pay too much attention to grammar and punctuation. If you are writing to a potential sponsor, however, you want to make sure that your message is perfectly readable. Capital letters to start a sentence and spaces are the very minimum you wanna go with….

4. No link or URL. So you want me to sponsor your blog eh? That is all right, but what is your blog? Give me the link, or I will sure not sweat myself in Google trying to find it by searching for your name.

5. No explanation of what I have to gain. We got be frank here, there is no charity going on around the Internet (well perhaps some, but you get my point). People will just sponsor your contest or website if they have something to gain out of it. It is in your best interests therefore to make this part as clear as possible!

6. No explanation of how the contest is structured. You also need to explain how the contest is going to work. Some people might not want to get involved with certain practices (i.e. blackhat or affiliate marketing).

There you go. If you want to get someone to sponsor or advertise on your blog, try to avoid those 6 deadly mistakes.

What is a Blog?

By Mohnish On August 12, 2008 2 Comments

This is a group writing project. If you want to take part, read on!

It is 2008; do we still need to ask ourselves what a blog is? I think so, and for two reasons. First of all we still have many misconceptions about blogging floating around the web. Pretty much every week I get at least one email from someone asking if I believe blogging has a future. My answer is always “as long as the Internet has a future, blogs do too.” You will see why I answer that below.

You also have countless articles being published every week where the author suggests that blogs are obsolete, and that the next big thing is micro blogging, or lifestreaming or something else. Again I don’t agree with any of those predicted trends.

The second reason for trying to define what a blog is in 2008 (many people have already done that in the past after all) is because blogging is a social phenomenon. As such, it is constantly evolving, and what was true two years ago might not be anymore.

Blogs Aren’t Necessarily Personal

The main misconception regarding the definition of blogs comes from people that associate blogs with their content. More specifically from people that associate blogs with the content from one particular type of blog: personal blogs.

In other words, those people think that blogs are online diaries where people share their opinions, ramblings and personal events.


That is just one of the things that you could do with a blog.

Today blogs are being used for all sorts of purposes. You have companies that use blogs to communicate and interact with customers and other stake holders. Newspapers that incorporated blogs to their main website to offer a new channel for their writers. Individuals that created a blog to share with the world their expertise on specific topics. And so on.

Separate The Content

If you separate the content from the website, it becomes much easier to work with the definitions.

Consider a person that wants to publish a Questions & Answers column online. She could use several types of websites for that purpose.

She could create an online forum, for example, where each thread would be an answer to a specific question. She could create a static HTML website and publish all the questions and answers on a single page. She could create a wiki where users would be able to edit the questions and answers directly. Finally, she could also create a blog where each post would contain a question and its answer.

As you can see, the content is not attached to the website. The picture below illustrates that (note that only four types of websites were used, but there are many more).

Obviously one type of website will be more suitable for a certain purpose than others. It would be easier for a company to use an online forum on its customer support section, for instance.

So What Is A Blog?

A blog is basically a type of website, like a forum or a social bookmarking site. As such it is defined by the technical aspects and features around it, and not by the content published inside it.

The features that make blogs different from other websites are:

  • content is published in a chronological fashion
  • content is updated regularly
  • readers have the possibility to leave comments
  • other blog authors can interact via trackbacks and pingbacks
  • content is syndicated via RSS feeds

Keep in mind that it is the bundle of those features that should define a blog. An online forum could also offer an RSS feed for example, but that would not make it a blog.
