What is a Meme? A Viral, Link Building Traffic Generator

Creating content that is viral is a great way to increase your exposure on the net. One excellent tool used by bloggers for viral linking is the Meme. It was used heavily when I first entered the blogosphere in 2005. Some Memes have been successful in increasing Technorati authority, such as the one spread by DoshDosh. Haven't had the opportunity to participate in any Memes? Don't know why you should participate in a Meme? Continue reading to learn about some of the benefits.

Memes are a great way for bloggers to accomplish several things.
1. It's a great way to find new interesting blogs.
2. It's a simple way to increase your backlinks.
3. Memes can increase your traffic.
4. They can help in your branding efforts.
5. One may even make some money from the added traffic.

Stephanie from Stop the Ride (a debt reduction blogger and creator of the Make it From Scratch blog carnival) has tagged me. I haven't participated in one of these in a very long time. I thought it would be a great way to involve the readers of this blog. I welcome everyone to participate, even if I don't tag you. I can only tag 5 people, so I encourage everyone to copy and paste the Meme and participate even if you weren't tagged.

*Start Copying Here*

I have randomly selected 5 of you below to be tagged and I hope that you will similarly publish this post in your blog. You will have to tag 5 other bloggers and just keep adding on to the list. (Do not replace, just keep on adding! Yes we hope it will be a long list!)

It’s real easy!

Tag others and see your Technorati Authority increase exponentially!

The benefits of Viral Linking:
- One of the fastest ways to see your technorati authority explode!
- Increase your Google PageRank fast
- Attract large volume of new traffic to your site
- Build your community

I recently participated in one called the friendship tag. I don't do these very often but when someone does decide to tag me, I sometimes feel a bit obligated to tag them back. Even if I don't participate, I usually add a post telling my readers about the blog that tagged me so that they can still get some traffic and link from my blog.

Congratulations on winning at Associated Content. I read the winning article you wrote.

It's horrible that you're still having to go to court a year after such a tragedy. I hope that you and your family are doing better and healing after such a great loss.

Thanks for always visiting and leaving a comment. I hope that you find the information I share useful.
