I originally set up a few blogs, about 1-2 years ago to see the effect on SEO with my sites. It may have helped, one of my blogs has a Pagerank of 5, DMOZ and Yahoo directory listing, and didn't cost a thing.

The thing was I started writing in the blog more and more, nothing related to SEO, though...so my intentions have changed. I know there is a lot of blog-spam out there. I would take some time in it if your creating content to help your visitors, to get some good articles out there, but for pure seo, I would spend your time elsewhere.

Cool thanks

But I think what I'll do is add more content to it for a couple of weeks just to test it for myself.

Something else I just found, some posted a link in a blog the will use a Google search phrase to list your site in the resluts. Just tested it a bit and it seems to work. Though I don't imagine the crawlers will like it. But at least it will create some popularity for a search phrase, even if it is vague. try this link and see what I mean.

'Hotels in Mallorca' as the link text

Hi Dodgecraft,

This article might be of interest.

It might seem overly positive in its tone, but it gives some common sense persepctives on the pro's of blogging.
