This post is 100% word-for-word taken from Lenore, but I don't think she'll mind. (Lenore, if you do, I will send you a batch of chocolate chip cookies - do you think they'll mail overseas?)
This week I happened upon a post that talked about what publishers look for when sending out review copies to book bloggers. You can read the entire post at The Book Publicity Blog, but what stood out most to me is that publicity people look at your technorati authority rating. This shows how many technorati registered blogs linked to your content over the past 6 months and shows how relatively popular your blog is. Trouble is, if mostly unregistered blogs link to you, your rating will be low despite how popular you might really be. I have a feeling a lot of you out there with YA blogs are not registered, so why not support the YA blogging community not just by linking to other blogs but also by making your links count? Register your blog at http://www.technorati.com/. It's been awhile since I did it, but it must have been fairly simply since I managed to register successfully.
P.S. It is free!
