Colin Lahay from Mixed Market Arts is the brain child behind rssHugger. The purpose of rssHugger is to bring in more readers through your RSS Feed, as well as providing a strong back link to your website. Colin has managed to provide a unique site which is rewarded by a pr5, 1800+ indexed pages and thousands of links pointing to the site. He has also setup a similar service called wordHugger which I will blog about tomorrow. This just goes to show how you can create new ways of building links and ranking with a unique web service.
My goal was originally to get 50,000 blogs signed up with a $10 joiners fee, but due to the fact that I want to support all of the great bloggers, even those who cannot afford $10, I changed this goal to sign up 250,000 free blogs within the first year of operation. With over 112 million registered blogs, with about 175,000 new ones per day, I feel this goal is possible. The money will be used to pay off college expenses, to invest in my other internet startup companies, sponsor like-minded business folk, and continue to support Kiva, who support entrepreneurs in the developing world.
