I came across a new political blog the other day that struck me as the perfect example of a political blog that has found a great content niche. It is a blog that takes on some of the crazies in the far left environmentalist movements, and it does so with the precision of a sniper.
The default content strategy for most amateur political blogs is to regurgitate the daily news cycle that is generated by the mainstream media. If you really want to take your blog to the next level give it purpose and give it focus. In the case of Life in Greenland, the author didn’t just focus on a big topic like environmentalism. The blog actually focuses on a small faction of the environmental movement. This is where bloggers can truly shine over their counterparts in the mainstream media.
The author has asked for some link love, and since link-building is a strategy I like to focus on, I would like to point out that I linked to the site in the body of my content, and I gave the link the title “Life in Greenland.”
To be more helpful with his cause I am also going to throw the hefty page rank weight of Revolutionary Blogger around to give some great keyword-based contextual links as well.
It is clear that Life in Greenland, is focused on exposing the radical ideologies of various left-wing environmentalists.
In doing this, I have helped Life in Greenland become keyword optimized for the phrase “left-wing environmentalist.” Of course, I am also going to include this phrase in my meta keywords and meta description. It would also be good to put this phrase in my title, but I haven’t figured out a way to work it in. As my own page becomes optimized for this phrase, the link juice I send back to Life in Greenland is even more potent. Now if ten other page ranked blogs did the same thing. Life in Greenland would be on a path to formidably hold down the top google rankings for this phrase.
Also, if Life in Greenland wanted to return the favor, the author of the blog could write a blog post about the virtues of blogging and link back to http://revolutionaryblogger.com with the phrase “political blogging guide” or “political blogging strategies” as the keyword anchor text.
Just for fun, I am going to suggest that Life in Greenland write a post with the words Naomi Klein Disaster Capitalism in the title, the meta description, and the meta keywords and several times in the post. Then I will write a post with optimized context links for this phrase to demonstrate how to colonize keyword phrases on the search engines. I would like the subscribers of Revolutionary Blogger to see how this works.
