Rick Hendershot, a fellow Canadian has come up with an interesting idea…not just because it is new and innovative, not just because he’s Canadian, not just because it’s a really useful idea, but also because it is something I had thought of earlier (same concept, different business model) but have been too busy to give it any serious thought.
You will find Rick’s self-serve blogging service Linknet2 an attractive alternative to the pay-per-post model, where you have to wait for someone to jump on your opportunity. Unlike the pay-per-post model, you have very little control over the content and the link text, and even the number of links you garner. So you control boith your reputation management and your SEO. This is a great way to build those elusive deep links.
Self-serve blogging means that you write the post, you insert the links, etc. Right now he has 13 blogs going as part of his system, but he soon will have more. The key to how valuable this will be is whether he can keep the quality of postings high and get inbound link juice to each of the blogs. We’ll check in again to see how this new service is doing.David Leonhardt
