Whilst surfing at Bestest Blog of all time I came across a posting on the Making Money on the Net blog and thought it was a great idea.

A Z-list has been created by Mack Collier from The Viral Garden blog and is intended to help small blogs to build links traffic and good rankings in Technorati. It’s a response to the Technorati way to rank blogs based on the links pointing to them.

The list is a meme which is a list of links to blogs which the participating blogs post on their blog and they can then add blogs they like but which are not included.

What benefits can the Z-List bring you and other bloggers:

-Lots of news links to your blog
-Higher ranking on Technorati
-A potential increase in readers and possible RSS subscribers
-A Page Rank increase
-You will have a lot of happy bloggers coming to your blog to thank you
-A lot of new blogs to read
-Good blogs with low exposure will benefit a lot

Note that as a kind of “honor rule” Mack, the creator, suggests that bloggers should not include their blogs on the list to ensure that the list isn’t manipulated for self-promotion. And as Malenki suggested you should include a link to the blog where you found out about the Z-List!

How to participate:

It’s easy, first you create a new post on your blog explaining the Z-List (just like this), then you copy the list and paste it on the post and add the blogs you want to include to the top of the list. Make sure all the links are pointing to the each blog’s homepage, and as Mack suggested do not include your blog, as it will be included by other bloggers in just a matter of time!

    That looks like a good idea, in theory. Eventually however your website could be posted on tons of sites that you wouldn’t like it to be on. Focusing your posting on blogs that you seem interesting really helps build real relationships.

    Best of luck.

    Bryan,
    You make a good point and I agree that focusing is the best thing to do. It will be interesting to see just what sort of coverage results from this exercise. Do you have a blog yourself?
