    Hey…that was quite useful. Although millions of people have a blog, most of those blogs just have one reader. And that is the author himself. This is a great way to actually plug your site or blog and get it right up there in the search results and get more eye share.

  7. Very nice! I look at at my links every other month but having an alert system like this is a lot better. Great post. One thing that did catch my attention was how you said page rank gives you healthy traffic from search engines, never knew this.
