Different Way in Reviewing

The most-read webloggers aren't necessarily the ones with the most original ideas, say researchers at Hewlett-Packard Labs.

Review Career Ramblings For A Backlink is a simple promotion offered by Career Development to other bloggers or webmasters as the case maybe to simply review their site and enjoy a backlink which has recently received a PageRank of 6 from Google. The authors of this blog Career Development, John Anthony and Jane May, are well versed on this topic since they write through their respective experiences in Corporate America and life in general.

But as the opening quotation says this idea of offering a Review and enjoy a free link back is surely not an original idea of Career Development. However, since this idea offers a win-win situation for both parties many well-known bloggers adopted it and bait most of the willing bloggers to make a review of their site. And both are happy to the results of this partnership or endeavor- in terms of gaining a higher page ranking and as well as boosting their ranking in the Search Engine.

This idea become infectious and well accepted by almost all bloggers specially those who want to make money online. However, who started this idea? majority of us does not know anymore, what is important is we gain what we wanted for our respective blogs.

But I hope the Hewlett-Packard Researchers will found out who started this idea as they have discovered that authors of popular blog sites regularly borrow topics from lesser-known bloggers -- and they often do so without attribution.
Furthermore to quote an statement coming from on its topic Warning: Blogs Can Be Infectious:

To satisfy their curiosity, the researchers began analyzing data from Intelliseek's BlogPulse Web crawler, which regularly mines thousands of blogs for references to people, places and events.

When they plotted the links and topics shared by various sites, they discovered that topics would often appear on a few relatively unknown blogs days before they appeared on more popular sites.

"What we're finding is that the important people on the Web are not necessarily the people with the most explicit links (back to their sites), but the people who cause epidemics in blog networks," said researcher Eytan Adar.

These infectious people can be hard to find because they do not always receive attribution for being the first to point to an interesting idea or news item.

So, to those who adopted this progressive idea of "Review Offer to have a Free Linkback" maybe it is time to know who started it in order for us to at least honor him or her. And may it be a start of an infectious behavior to all bloggers out there in blogosphere to acknowledge the creator of the "ideas" that being introduced and adopted by us.
