I have taken so much from the Warrior Forum in the past and have learned so much from all of you. Now it's my turn to give a little bit back.
The other day I shut off the old PC, turned down the lights and switched on the radio and grabbed a book. One of those rare times when I had the house all to myself. I generally listen to a great AM station down here that covers world news and events, local stuff and rebroadcasts of other news type shows.
On this particular day I was listening to what I thought was an old style radio variety show. I didn't know the name of the show but instantly fell in love with it. I later found that many others shared my love of this show, that they even made a movies about it with an all-star cast.
Not knowing anything about it, I took to the web to see what I could find out. Now mind you I had no intention of doing anything related to work. I simply wanted to know more about the show.
What I ended up discovering was 2 sites that had open comment sections and that allowed links in your posts. One is a PR8 and the other a PR9!
So for all you Warrior's out there here's what you do.
Simply go to NPR : National Public Radio : News & Analysis, World, US, Music & Arts : NPR
That's right National Public Radio! They are a PR9. Once you are there you will see at the top right hand corner a "Register" tab. Click on that and sign up. You must be registered and logged in to post a comment.
I spent about 2 min's going through the site till I found an article associated with one of my niches. I put up a relevant, intelligent comment and added my site url under my name. Then hit Submit and there you go.
The other site I found with a PR8 was the site of the company that produces the radio show I was listening to. The show in case you where wondering is called "A Prairie Home Companion" It is Live every Saturday night, A Prairie Home Companion features comedy sketches, music and Garrison Keillor's signature monologue, "The News from Lake Wobegon." (that part is taken right from the site)
The site that produces this and many other shows is Home | American Public Media
Which is a PR8
Go to that page and click on Programs at the top. Scroll threw the list till you see something you like and click on it. In my case it's the Prairie Home Companion Show, click on the link for "website" and you are now at the site of the program which is also a PR8, the other programs range from PR6-8 with most being a PR7.
Once you are at the site, there is no sign up, simply find a post that relates to you or your niche and add a comment with your URL at the end.
The first comment I did, the link showed up in less than 2 days on Yahoo Site Explore and Google Webmaster tools for my site.
One word of caution and respect here, please don't abuse this gift. NPR and Public Radio are wonderful resources that we have and I would hate to see people spamming the posts and leaving garbage comments for the sake of the link.
So there they. Take em or leave em. Thanks again to everyone who goes out of there way to help those of us that can use it the most.
