Blog Rules

In an effort to increase participation in my blog, I have decided to make it do follow. This is important for a couple of reasons:

1) The no-follow attribute is designed to strip the link juice from sites you don’t trust – I do trust my network of online friends, & I don’t think that we should automatically distrust newcomers.

2) Link Juice is important to our rankings! Most of us participate in online communities for 2 reasons – it’s fun, and it’s good for business. Without do-follow, our business doesn’t benefit.

So welcome to my do follow blog & please enjoy the discussion. A few rules (most of which are borrowed from Ryan Ward.)

1) Please don’t abuse the do-follow w/ spammy comments & anchor text links to your website – please use your name, or your “handle.”

2) I’m giving link juice here, so please don’t be shy to link back to my site or blog.

3) Try & add something to the conversation – please don’t post a bunch of “me too” comments just to get a backlink.

4) Email notification of followup’s are great, and really add to the discussion. Leave the box checked! If you care enough to comment, you should care enough when others do.

5) I will not allow any links to pornographic, gambling, or excessively spammy sites.

6) My Lucia’s Linky Love settings allow a comment to go dofollow after a commentator has left 10 comments, and as long as the name is less than 20 characters.

Here is a list of do-follow real estate blogs I’m compiling.

He knows Austin very well, which is what we really cared about, since we knew little about the various Austin neighborhoods.…

Eric is such a fantastic realtor! I had a distressed home to sell and Eric gave me the advice I needed to list it at a price that would sell. His suggested price was right on, and the house sold in a week! Eric was always available and replied quickly to all of our questions.…

My wife and I found Eric online in 2011 when we were considering moving to Austin. Eric was very helpful showing around various neighborhoods during my business trips that made my decision to move to Austin easier. Unlike most agents, Eric also helped us find an apartment for around 6 months so that we could…
