I have had good luck using Group writing projects. I have found them to be an incredibly effective way of driving traffic to my site. The days I participated in on Daily Blog Tips and Problogger have been some of the single highest traffic days I have had.
To share the wealth Savvy Affiliate is now hosting a group writing project. And if this is successful, I will be hosting more in the future. I’m sure it won’t trigger the same response as one on Problogger, but it is free, and you might gain some new readers out of it, especially if your site is relatively new.
The rules for this group writing project
Topic : What is the best time saving tip you recently started using? Although I expect many of these to be blogging and internet themed, that is not a requirement. The requirements are that it be a time saving tip other people can employ, and it has to be relatively new to you. If you just learned a new Firefox trick, great. If you’ve known it for a year, pick something else. No specific time frame on “New”, just use your judgement
Notifying : Make sure I know about it by leaving a comment or a trackback to this specific blog post, or by sending an e-mail to SavvyAffiliate [at nospam] Gmail [Dot] com
Time Frame : From now until July 1st, 2007 I’ll be accepting entries.
Use Of Posts : I will just be linking to your post and including a blurb or an excerpt, you retain full ownership of anything you write.
Subject To My Judgement : Although I intend to include every person who participates, I will use my judgement to not include sites I deem inappropriate for me to be linking to (adult, pharmacy, etc). But I have a fairly lax judgement of inappropriate, so as long as you don’t think you’re a spammer/scammer, I probably won’t either.
Interlinking : I’ll be posting the links as they come on this page, and a summary page after it is all through. I encourage you to check out any participants pages and link to them if you find them interesting. Please write your own summaries though, no one wants duplicate content.
