#UCIF - U Comment, I Follow Bloggers on Twitter: Welcome To #UCIF - Get Ready For a Traffic Explosion!

Welcome To #UCIF - Get Ready For a Traffic Explosion!

Greetings, tweeps :-)

If you're an active blogger, you're probably familiar with the popular "U Comment, I Follow" blogging movement. It's commonplace now to see "U Comment, I Follow" badges on active blogs, sending a message of mutual support, encouraging readers who blog to leave meaningful comments. It's a great system, and it can work to build any blog from the ground up.

Twitter is also a great venue for blog development. With many tweeters automating the posting of blog entries and even creating separate Twitter accounts for their blogs, it's apparent that these bloggers are looking for more traffic.

Who isn't?

That's why merging the two methods together makes so much sense. Bloggers trust Twitter to help them build their blogs, and if all of the "U Comment I Follow" bloggers on Twitter were able to find each other, everyone's blog would grow!

Cool, huh?

Thus, #UCIF was born. Simply insert #UCIF into any tweet that would be of interest to "U Comment I Follow" bloggers, and like-minded tweeps will be able to find your posts and increase your traffic and readership. Using either Twitter Search or Hashtags.org, you can instantly find a list of new blog readers who want to network with you.

It's that simple.

The only catch is that it only works as well as the size of the #UCIF community. If there are 5 members, then your blog can grow by 5 readers. If there are 5,000 members...well, you do the math. It's also easier to find more blogs that are closely related to yours when there is a large group to choose from. Essentially, the success of #UCIF depends on tweeple who invite their tweeps to join.

Well, how do we do that?

Simply post the following tweet to your own feed as often as you feel is appropriate:


Using Twitter to build your blog? Let me help - visit http://hashtag-ucif.blogspot.com to meet "U Comment, I Follow" bloggers like us #UCIF


It's as simple as that :-)


More is coming soon, including a #UCIF blog directory for easy searching, #UCIF awards, and more. But we can get the ball rolling by leaving comments on this post that include your blog title, url, and description so that we can get to know each other (and get some quick and easy backlinks, too).


To your continued success,

I.C. Jackson

Thank you Ivo for setting this up.

There are lots of bloggers who are looking for traffic, comments and linkbacks.

chethan said...

Wow this will be great! I'm ready to contribute for this amazing idea. It will be a success for sure

chethan said...

Following you on twitter username is cheth

I.C. Jackson said...

Thanks for your support Larry and Chethan :-)

Just insert the #UCIF tag into tweets that you want bloggers to respond to, and watch the magic work!

And don't forget to post your blogs here in the comments section (use < a > tags to activate your links)

I'll start:

The Real Black Issues - a blog addressing pertinent issues facing African Americans.

EagleVue Daily - a conservative news media blog.


I'll see you in the blogosphere!

Welcome to the group, Ms. Rawkin!

I'm off to visit blogs and get more cool stuff for us all to use as we build our blogs.

Nurse Jen Doll said...

Could you please explain again how this works? I'm confused.

www.nursejendoll.com

twitter.com/nursejendoll

I.C. Jackson said...

Hi Jen :-)

Based on the time stamp on your post, you may have already seen my response on Blog Catalog.

However, you really just add #UCIF to your tweets and search for #UCIF using hashtags.org or Twitter Search so you can find other bloggers who reciprocate comments the way you do.

Have fun :-)

work from home said...

I hope I undersud this. I Twitted #UCIF and added my blog url for start. Now, I have to coment on someones blog and he/she will tweet me?

http://workfromhome-at.com/blog/

I.C. Jackson said...

Hi, work from home :-)

Thanks for stopping by. What the tag does is allows bloggers who do comment exchanges to find you so that everyone can grow their readership and search engine rankings.

I think I've visited your blog already, but I'm about to double check :-)

thesmallbizexpert said...

Thank you very much for sharing this site and the info.

This is great!

spiderwebmarketing said...

Thanks for sharing this info with me.We all need traffic and this is a simple idea to get traffic to your blog.

SideSplitters said...

Thanks for the idea! I'll definitely be using this.

Coletha Browning, MBA said...

Okay so if I understand I copy the link you provided as is....no changes?

Then.....when I see that same link on someone else's tweet I know they are also a part of this link exchange program, and I visit their blog and comment on it, or link to it?

That sounds simple enough if I have it right and definately a good idea for building traffic. Thank you for starting this.

Oh BTW my blog http://colethabrowning.blogspot.com

I.C. Jackson said...

Hi Coletha :-)

It's the tag that you want to include in your tweets.

tag = #ucif

I'll be visiting your blog and others very soon,

I.C. Jackson

I.C. Jackson said...

Got a new blog to add to the mix, too - Better Writer Blog

Web Host FAQ said...

Hi, its nice to see one more in the movement of do follow, I can't understand why many of them still stick to no follow when there is no reason to do so except to stop spam which can be done by many other means. Do follow not only encourages the commentators to comment on the blog but also spreads the link juice.

sweet said...

really very great thinking, bcz every blogger wants traffic, comments and linkbacks.

This is a fantastic idea. I think the shear volume of comments on this post just shows how ready the online community are for things to start moving in this direction.

Cloth Diapers said...

Having a blog with dofollow is the generous thing to do, but the argument that having nofollow breaks the internet is false. The links still exists for readers to click on it's just the false page rank spamming that's being affected.

“U comment I follow” presents a significantly potential beneficial tool for the blogging and business community. Yes it’s a pity that we have to let go some of our precious time to moderate these comments but we can’t also risk a legitimate comment go unattended.

I can understand people not wanting spammers to take over their site and I'm perfectly fine with that. But why do some blogs put the 'u comment i follow' sign up if they are, in fact, no follow? Makes no sense to me.

I included a hyperlink in my reference which supplies an IP deal with to be entered in to browse. I can't figure out if that is what I need to unblock websites.
