That's essentially basic 'SEO 101' - alt tag your pron. ;)

And I don't always manage to do it myself...

If your blog offers up a stats section, like wordpress does, look at what search terms are causing people to hit the place, or what referrers they are coming from.

If you want to go to town with it all, install google analytics and track all that. I don't, but I should. Especially for my Getting Started in Second Life guide... since that's aimed at people in the outside world.

Fashion blogs... If you find people -are- coming to your blog from random google/bing searches, add some info there about how to join SL... (/spam And link to my guide. :D).

- link them to the SL homepage, the viewer download page, a guide ( :D ), and some form of community blog for whatever theme you're into.

(A wise person might also include info on welcoming newbies to contact you, inside of SL, to get more involved.)

Your reviewed marketing tips are very good. As a SL fashion blogger I found these tips are very crucial for me. Thanks and keep up sharing.

hahaha, you do link to the tutorial that begins with do as I say, not as I do. I am terrible at the flickr marketing aspect, using it more for storage than as a marketing tool. Every time I open up Flickr with the intent to add pics to groups and add tags and be a good flickr self-promoter, I see other folks' pictures and it's like that dog, "Squirrel!" and off I go, wandering up and down other people's photostreams and forgetting all about my own.
