Tip #13 – Power in Numbers – Cross Link Your Blogs!

Another great way you can increase your Technorati ranking is by cross-linking any other blogs you might own with your primary blog.
For example, I have had a MSN Messenger account for ages. Unbeknown to me, MSN gave all of their messenger customers a free blog. I simply posted a message on my MSN blog that asked anyone who might go there to please visit my real blog at http://thorschrock.com. Then I copied the URL of the MSN page and pasted it into the ping box at http://technorati.com/ping and pinged the MSN blog.
Next I posted a similar comment in my MySpace blog as well as a post about my MSN blog. The MySpace link to my MSN blog raised the MSN blog’s ranking and then that increase was passed on to my real blog. By cross linking your blogs they all benefit from increased rankings, and can have a pyramid effect on your primary blog.
I encourage you to do this with any blogs or profile pages you have with other websites. However I will also caution you against creating multiple “splogs” or blogs whose sole purpose is to inflate your Technorati ranking. Splogging doesn’t work for very long, and eventually they will detect and ban you. Don’t go black-hat here.
