For blogs that are started with the intention of holding backlinks, businesses should not ever compromise on quality. To do this would be to compromise on the quality of the business itself, as backlinks link directly to the business that makes them in this case. Your reputation is at stake remember you start a blog, so keep this in mind when you hire blog writers and ghostwriters to work on your articles. Your PageRank can go up whenever someone actually reads your blog, and creating a load of blogs that no one will read can only hurt you. In addition, whenever you start a new blog, make sure you know all of the protocol and some of the culture surrounding that blogging platform. On a microblogging platform like Tumblr, for example, you are not likely to gain any followers unless you post things in the tags that people like to see. Do not post irrelevant things in the tags. Even if they contain backlinks and this is good for your business, your Tumblr page will not get any traffic if you are rude to other members of Tumblr who are not on the blogging platform for business purposes.

For example, if you have a picture of a galaxy and a slew of links posted beneath it, do not post this picture in the #gymnastics tag. The #gymnastics tag is for people who are actually interested in gymnastics, not galaxies. This might seem obvious to you, but unfortunately the tags that are tracked by many people like the #gymnastics tag will see a lot of spam on a daily basis that has absolutely nothing to do with the topic in question. While galaxies are relatively inoffensive, there will even be offensive posts in these tags to be used as link farms. As a result, users will block the particular blog that posts these images and any additional efforts will be useless. This is why it is important to understand the audience of each blogging interface. If you are starting a blog on Tumblr, find the tags that actually pertain to what you are advertising and post in those tags. As Tumblr is home to a diversity of different interests, it is important to post to tags that will gain you followers. There are many non-commercial interests on Tumblr, but there are also many shoppers on Tumblr looking for good deals.

Hence, there are tags just for stereo systems, clothes, shoes, jewelry, and other things that can be bought and sold. If just one of your posts is well-formatted enough to go viral, this is a great boost for your new niche business. These posts typically contain backlinks, accompanied by beautiful photography and a variety of tags. Tens of thousands of people will see these posts, and every time someone reblogs the post that is another backlink for you! Doesn’t that sound much easier than creating a bunch of broken posts that no one ever wants to read? Backlinking can be good for both the audience and the business.
