    Hi Donna!

    We complete agree with you. Being part of a tribe is not only great for syndication, but it’s so interesting to read and learn from other people’s blogs.

    We are currently part of 2 tribes and we are loving it!

    Thanks for your post!

    Donna, you are absolutely right when it comes to syndication and following a tribe. This is so important in branding yourself and your business.

    Oh yes Richard….when I see those one phrase comments on someone’s blog, it is a clue that it is a generated system that doesn’t add anything of value. Thanks for your awesome comment.
    Regards,

    Hi Donna,

    No question that collaborating with others can kick start your blog’s growth. Blog traffic boils down to two things to master: #1 is keywords and SEO and #2 is generating social buzz.

    Both are interactive but the blogger needs to learn and then do different things for #1 and #2 and “tribes” is one way to learn and then do something about #2.

    I think of collaborating in tribes as:
    –better to have six horses pulling the stage coach than 1.
    –better to have 20 mules hauling the canal barge than 1.
    –better to have a rope tying up a freighter than a thread.

    Love the conversation about QUALITY comments here too! Those one-phrase comments don’t add much content to the post or conversation.

    Hi Donna,

    I used to look at people’s blogs and wonder how on earth they were getting so many comments and then I found out about tribes….phew! 😀

    Since I joined a Tribe, I no longer see tumbleweed blowing across my blog. Definitely something all bloggers need.

      Not only that Denise, but the comments are specific. When I see blogs with too many comments, like great job! Awesome, etc, I know it is a generated comment group.
      Our tribe reads the blogs and learns from them. Then give good comments. I like quality instead of quantity.
      Another good point you raise is that without a tribe you don’t see those tumbleweeds!
      Blessings, Donna

    Although it may sound like an online RPG game approach, it’s true that the main strategy to get attention throughout the blogosphere is through tribes. Hence, getting connected with a good tribe increases your chances of being known online while it’s vice versa if you chose otherwise. The bottom line is even if you’re establishing your independent business, dominating the net with a group is by far the best move you can do.

      The most important thing about our tribe is that it is comprised with people who actually READ each other’s blogs and post good comments, thereby learning and sharing in the process. Not only that, but the support and learning curves on the tribe reinforces people. The mastermind groups that are created help people in certain interest groups. It has a strong foundation with healthy syndication!

      Welcome Kareem! I am trying to blog basics so that people who are coming into Internet Marketing will find it easier to understand.

    Donna, I couldn’t agree more with you about the benefits of joining a tribe. I recently joined the Tribe and I am so grateful for the boost to my blog because of syndication and for the relationships and learning that I’m enjoying. The way I see it, joining a tribe is one of the best moves a blogger can make 🙂

    Hello Donna! Yes you are absolutely right…if I didn’t have my tribe it would be cricket city at my blog, no doubt! It’s a feeling of not being alone, having people to ask questions of and exchange ideas. I haven’t been a part of my tribe very long but I’ve already made some great friends that I would’ve otherwise never have met.
    Thanks for being there.
    Your friend, Kim

      I agree. I’ve been with the tribe for a year now, and before that I was lingering in cyber-space!

    Donna,
    I so agree with you on the power of the Tribe! I joined in Feb. to learn who to build and operate my blog. Since then, things have sky rocketed! Without the support and encouragement of the tribe, I might as well write in a journal. The benefits of connecting with a good tribe go way beyond syndication. A world of Go-Givers is what I found! You are one of the top ones too!

    Hi Donna,

    Yes, yes! As a newbie to all this stuff, I can’t find enough words of appreciation for what the Tribe is bringing to my world. Not least of which – and so importantly – visitors!

    Thanks for putting it out there. It’s good news for everyone with a blog.

    Tricia.

    Getting syndicated is important, but your site still has to convert visitors into customers or distributors.

    Thanks Don. Yea..I went to Wikipedia because I wanted a “definition” of Blog Syndication. And there it was. I was surprised it was there actually.
    Since I found the Tribe Syndication model, It changed my life too.
    Thanks,
    Donna

    Hi Donna,
    About a year ago I was new to blogging and had never heard of syndication. I had seen blogs like you mentioned that had great info but were like ghost towns. It was easy to tell they weren’t getting the message out.

    Shortly after coming online I found the Tribe Syndication model. It completely changed my blog and it’s life. Through syndication I have come to know many more people. All who have valuable information to share and through syndication they are thriving too.

    Thanks for putting it in dictionary terms. I would’ve never thought to go to Wikipedia. LOL!

    Joining a tribe is something I have not done before. Perhaps it’s time that I get serious about it. 🙂
