BlogCatalog Gets Social

Posted on 3.21.2007
From the "if they can do it, you can do it" file, popular blog directory announced Monday several new free social networking features aimed at boosting members blog traffic and networking capabilities. Social networking (as we mentioned in our latest feature 'Checking Out Online Hot Spots') enables site owners and Web marketers to boost retention on existing memberships - but that's not all. While niche Web communities enable participants to connect, interact and share ideas (not to mention drive website traffic to each other), offerings such as biographies, photos and voting provide a richer experience for those simply on a casual visit.

"A community of passionate users has a vested interest in improving the community," said Antony Berkman, head of BlogCatalog's future vision group. "The result is the community highlights and showcases the best blogs. This, in turn, makes the community much more valuable to visitors looking for specific information. BlogCatalog also benefits as bloggers congregate, talk and return more often to see how their neighborhoods are doing. The BlogCatalog team is particularly inspired by the gigantic boost in traffic being sent to neighborhood blogs."

Are you getting social on your site? Maybe it's time.
