Blog link exchanges and link promotion sites are pretty worthless. I've been a hardcore blogger for several years now you can go to my blog shown below for my credentials. Digg, Stumble Upon, and similar sites are often used to "game" the system. The traffic you get from these sites is generally unqualified curiosity surfers. Conversion to sales is miserable. You get a temporary bump in hits, but that just gives you a false sense of "popularity". Best way to get people to link to your blog is to post comments, lots of conversation-enriching remarks, at other blogs that are relevant to your own. Steven E.
