There are millions of moms who have discovered blogging as an outlet for expressing their thoughts and opinions about topics that are near and dear to their hearts. But, gaining an audience for our writing is a huge endeavor in and off itself. We all know that link exchanges are the key to gaining SEO visibility and traffic. But in reality, not all link exchanges are made equal. After all, how valuable is a link from a page when you are buried among hundreds of other links that don’t explain anything about your unique point of view or expertise?
That’s why Trekaroo is launching a new program – The Trekaroo KidsMobile – to provide a unique opportunity for mom bloggers to be featured on Trekaroo while 1) expressing their unique point of view, and 2) getting a web of link exchanges. It’s a blog carnival with a good twist.
Over the next 50 weeks, the Trekaroo KidsMobile will travel across America, stopping off at a major family destination each week. All blogging parents can participate by creating a list on Trekaroo that reflects their unique point of view.
So, let’s take our first stop – New York City (scheduled for Sept 15,2009).
Does your blog focus on fashion? Write a list of the “10 Best Places to Go Shopping with a Teen in NYC”.
Does your blog focus on education? Write a list of the “10 Most Interesting Educational Opportunities for Kids in NYC”.
Does your blog focus on life with a toddler? Write a list of “Must See Places in NYC with a Toddler”.
Do you keep a funny blog? Write a list of “Goofy Experiences with Kids in NYC.”
Get the idea?
As for the link exchanges, it’ll work much like a blog carnival. The diagram below shows the web of link exchanges that all participating blogs will gain when they participate in the KidsMobile Program.
All participants get a link from Trekaroo to your blogs via their Trekaroo Passport.
But we will also provide a link to your blog from our 20+ different blogs that we maintain on various news publications like sfgate.com.
Plus, you’ll get links from all the other blogs who participate in KidsMobile the week you do.
Now that’s what we call quality linky love.

Trekaroo is a reviews site dedicated to exploring and traveling with kids. Most of our families are just normal moms and dads, sharing about their real experiences as they explore with their kids. Our community recommends fun activities for kids, and kid-friendly hotels, and restaurants.
