Most blogs out there never get out of the starting gate much less reach page rank two, so I was amazed to see Tempworks’ very own Cory Hintz have his blog hit a page rank of three during its first year. Page rank is a measure of a Web page’s popularity.
Instead he constantly outlinks, and he does it with the deftness of a Michigan State fast break. Outlinking is the referencing of a web page outside of your own website, and people who do it well and a lot become focal points of network activity. In a Web world in which everyone is out for inbound links to make themselves appear popular, it’s the outlinkers that have got the right chemistry. Like they say, if you want a friend, be a friend.
In this post, for example, Cory extols the work of Tempworks staff, in this one the IT department of one of our clients and in this one the blog of a staffing company owner, Cathy Frost, also a client.
