How I made a Hot MBL community in a week

MBL is MyBlogLog.

It is probably the biggest community with regular activity which has the potential to bring thousands of daily visits to your blog. Once you create a community for your site it is all about getting it popular. My hits went up from 125 odd a day to as high as 422 for 5 days.

The best place for a community in MBL is the "Hot Communities" section. It features six communities and drives enormous traffic to them. I was able to make it to the esteemed list a week after I started my community. The answer to how I made to hot communities in a week can be answered in a few steps:

  • Know MBL in and out

It is just like life, before starting anything you should know it in and out. You will learn things as you go along but it is important not to miss any opportunities. There is a huge collection of how to's on MBL, just google for "MyBlogLog" or "MBL" and read everything you find. I did it for 5 days. The best thing I learnt about MBL while reading is:
People on MBL need blogging tips, adult blogs, money making tips and colorful pictures(in that order).
So if your blog is one amongst the above you should definitely tap MBL for traffic.

  • Keep Clicking

This might be unethical for some but this is what it takes. Go to the new member's area in MBL and open profiles in new tabs. You dont even need to look at them (if you dont want to), since you leave a trail in the Recent Visitors. The person will think that you did visit his homepage. Most of the time people do comeback to check your profile. This drives traffic to your page and possibly to your community. Also, click the "Who's reading What?" and "New Neighbors...". The more profiles you click, the more visits you get.

  • Catchy Avatar

This is what I believe is very important. Recently, MBL decided to ban animated gifs so that is out of picture. I chose an avatar of the girl from "My Sassy Girl" and everybody seems to love her (I knew it). Following are some of the options:
    • Beautiful girls pics
    • Targeted avatars- eg. If you visit anime communities use an anime character
    • Adult Pics - Personally, I hate this one but it seems to work for many. Be careful it will offend many people too.
    • Child Photos- Cute baby pics or something that will count as "cute" to the ladies.
There are infinite avatars available online, just google it.

  • Make Friends

Everywhere, friends help you out. I made a couple of friends who helped me out. They had been on MBL for long time and they helped me out. They even provided link to my community on there communities which gave a boost.

  • Publicize your community

Post a link to the community on your own blog and make a catchy icon (see my right sidebar). Make it visible and people might join.

  • Join My Community, Get a Link

Yes, you might even try this. Get people to join your community and get them a free linkback in return. Its upto you how long you want to run it. It is to give you the initial 50 members, so that people dont see a barren community when they go to your community page.

  • Use the 15 Community and Friend joins

In MBL you can join max 15 communities and make 15 friends a day. I tried to utilise this to the fullest. Whenever you add a contact or join a community leave some interesting message which will bring them to there page and they will join. Dont leave a "I joint yours, please join mine" kind of a message. People dont read it and they wont come to your page.

This is almost everything I can tyhink about right now. If you have any queries, feel free to contact me. In the next article I will show you how to convert this page traffic to your blog traffic.

I have found MBL to be effective too. One thing about just visiting the community and commenting, this is easy to spot (you do not show up as a visitor to the blog). It looks a bit spammy.
I always take a look at the blog. if possible, I will even make a comment on the blog if there is a topic I can relate to.
This almost guarantees a return visit. Often, a return comment on the blog.
I have also made several blogging friends this way. I think it is great.

Hi James thats definitely a quality way. You have got to things according to your needs. Suppose you want to inrease community members, you have to believe in quantity. If you want loyal blog readers, then as you said, you have to give quality to each of your visits.

Of course, if you can have both quality and quantity, its the best .
