The Z-List, a traffic building concept

I visited one of my commentor’s site (RT Cunningham) and saw this post. I read about this list earlier in eJab’s comments section but thought nothing of it at first. But now I think I’d like to try it out. Just copy and paste the source for the rest of this post if you want to give it a shoot.

What’s the idea?

It started with Mack Collier of The Viral Garden, who came up with the idea of giving a links boost to us smaller bloggers, the “Z List”. As you may know, a blog’s success in terms of visibility really depends on links: more links = higher Technorati & Google Pagerank results = more people finding you.


The premise is simple: Write a post, and copy and paste my list from below into it. Make sure the links are active and correct. If your blog is on that list, remove it because your post isn’t about self-promotion. Don’t worry, because if your name is on mine, it’s on others and will spread. Add your favorite deserving blogs to the top of the list (not compulsory). Publish the post. People will notice the incoming links, and hopefully write their own z-list posts. The result will be that we all get more links pointing to our blogs, and more readers — it’s got to be good!

Key Points

1. Create a new post on your blog.
2. Copy and Paste the entire list of blog links below
3. Add any blogs that you want to include near the top of the list. (Optional)
4. Include the blog where you first got the list from, on the list in your post.
5. Do not include your own blog links on the list in your post.
6. Make sure that all links are copied intact (use the source, Luke).
7. Publish the Post.

    wow – this keeps growing and growing…and going…Thanks for helping it along! and for listing Women, Art, Life. I try to keep up with this as best I can but it keeps morphing and there is just no way. But it sure has taken me to some great blogs! Love the “if you are sad” post – my daughter gave me a card like that once…and it really brightened my day.
