    Blogs: Frequently Asked Questions - Are there different types of blog links?

    (Page 6 of 6 )

    There are many types of links found on blogs. First, there are the links to other blogs on the link list, referred to as a blogroll. Second, there are links to other blogs from within the blog posts themselves. Third, there are internal links from one referenced blog post to another, either from within a blog post or as categorized and archived links. Fourth, there are links from blog comments.

    Are blog links downgraded by search engines like guest book links?

    Because there are many types of blog links, there is often confusion about their treatment by the various search engines, most notably by Google. The links from the blogroll and from within the posts are treated like any other inbound, outbound, and internal website links. They are awarded Google PageRank transfer and link popularity value in accordance with the search engine algorithm. The links that are being downgraded are links sent out from blog comments as a result of spamming activity by other webmasters. Normal blog links are not affected.

    Can a blog be listed in any free Internet directories?

    There are many free Internet directories that are open only to blogs. Not only do the blog directories provide link popularity value, and Google PageRank transfer, but they are known to also supply some regular fresh visitor traffic. Blogs are also eligible for inclusion in the many free Internet directories designed for traditional websites. Because a blog is simply another type of website, blogs are deemed acceptable for submission and inclusion in the mainstream Internet directories.

    Do the DMOZ and Yahoo! Directories accept blogs?

    As with any other type of website, blogs are eligible for inclusion in both the Open Directory Project (DMOZ) http://www.dmoz.org and the Yahoo! Directory http://dir.yahoo.com/. The DMOZ Directory has recently created a blog specific category to accommodate the many blogs submitted, while also including many blogs in the standard website categories should their subject matter be suitable.
