Treat My Blog – An Experiment

So you have a new blog. Incredible contents. You want everyone to notice it. How you wish everybody would:

  • StumbleUpon your blog
  • add your blog to their Technorati favorite
  • del.icio.us bookmark your blog
  • subscribe to your feed
  • vote for your blog
  • leave nice comments on your posts

Every new blogger dream of this. I know I do. So let’s do something about it. Let us help make this dream come true.

I’m going to do a bit of an experiment. I’m not sure if this would work, so let’s just see how it develops.

The idea is to ‘treat a blog’; helping one chosen blog to get some exposure, recognition and traffic. Anyone can participate, in fact everyone is invited to test this out. All you need to do is leave your blog url in the comment box to indicate that you’re participating, and easier for me to notify when it’s time for you to play doctor!

Treat My BlogFor the participating doctors:

When the time is right (max of 20 or 25 participant reached, or perhaps 100?? – this can be decided later) you need to do the following:

  • StumbleUpon the blog
  • add the blog to your Technorati favorite
  • bookmark the blog at del.icio.us
  • subscribe to the blog feed
  • vote for the blog (where applicable)
  • leave positive comments on the blog posts

Oh! This is all up to you by the way. If you think you want to just do three out of the five task listed, be it. But the more the better.

And as an additional bonus, the chosen blog that needs help can also be nominated to undergo a blog optimization at Blog Optimazation Project after receiving our treatments.

You’re then welcome to host this same process and nominate another blog and get your visitors to participate.

For the chosen blog:

  • enjoy your treatments (imagine how many traffic you’ll get if these good hearted doctors StumbleUpon your blog! My site was stumbled upon few weeks back and got a mere 1000 hits in a day, now imagine 20 people stumbleupon your blog!)
  • post a similar post like this one and nominate another blog to be treated
  • give credits to your ‘doctors’ by listing their blog urls in the post

That’s about it.

Ideas and suggestions to improvise this experiment are welcome! Participate now, leave your details in the comment box.

  3. Elbert West says:

  4. Chris says:

    I’m in…this sounds like a real simple and effective idea.

  5. thats a great idea!! its great to test how important is the blog community!! im in but i never doctored a blog….
    just a question…how will this new blog be chosen for the treat??

    • borzack says:

      well, initially i thot, the blog that’s hosting this will have to nominated one (i was going to nominate Susie’s Jolly Green Girl but now she’s become a doctor LOL) maybe i will look around for a suitable blog, or do you guys have a particular blog in mind? suggestion?

  6. Sueczech says:

    Count me in! I love playing doctor! πŸ™‚

  7. mark cutler says:

    Can I nominate myself? I have an Interior Design blog, I think it’s pretty good, and it could do with a shot in the arm. If I don’t get nominated, thats cool, will happily participate in the doctoring.

    • borzack says:

      mark, your blog have a PR of 4! this experiment is to help a NEW blog that has potential, good content and but lacks exposure, traffic etc πŸ™‚

  8. steve says:

    –Steve

    Good luck! πŸ™‚ And again, nice job!

    -Kate

  15. Susie says:

    LOL… borzack… by all means.. doctor me up.. I don’t mind.. so why did you choose those two blogs btw?

  16. Susie says:

    I have an ideal… why don’t we do the same for all the doctors? That might give an incentive for more people to join.. of course you might want to close it after you get a set number or it might get pretty chaotic.

  17. borzack says:

    both are new blogs, with good contents. if you knew of other blog that fits these criteria, lemme know. the purpose of this experiment is to help increase exposure/traffic/bit of ranking for a NEW good blog, most of you doctors already have PRs for your respective blogs, but then again, if you like to do the same among each other, by all means… hehehe

  18. Jayce Ooi says:

    Cool. Anyone visit JayceOoi.com lately? πŸ™‚

  19. Susie says:

    Thanks for thinking about nominating me… I appreciate it. Well so far I have gotten good reviews about my blog but I do realize that it’s not even a month old but I have learned so much in the past three weeks. I don’t have pr yet but I am optimistic that I will get one soon. πŸ™‚ If anyone wants to help my Alexa ranking? It’s like 2,500,000… lol.

  20. Derek says:

    Sounds interesting. I’m in.

  21. clkl says:

    I’d like to play doctor, too!
