If you want other bloggers to display your link party (what is known as a “blog hop”), there is an easy way to let them grab your code for their site.

Here is how the cohosts can pick your code:

1. While on your InLinkz home page, click on the "share your code" link of a party:
Share your code

2. Copy the "Direct link". You can add it to your blog or send it via email to your cohosts.

Direct link

Alternatively, share your code through facebook or twitter.
Share the code on Twitter

3. Once the cohosts click on the link, they will be transferred to an InLinkz page to get your code and add it to their blogs (in HTML editing mode).

This is what the cohosts will see:
Grab the code

The provided code works for all sites. As soon as they add it, your link party will be displayed to their blogs as well.

Please note: This link will enable anyone to host your link party, so take extra care where you send it to.

What are Blog Hops?

Tags: share a link party, blog hop

A Blog Hop is a list of thumbnailed links (a linkup or a link party) shared between a group of bloggers so while people are “hopping” from blog to blog, they see the same list on each blog.

The way Blog Hops work is that it allows bloggers not only to create a substantial relationship with their own readers but also share readership with other bloggers in their niche.

That is why Blog Hops is a fabulous and fun way to increase your blog's traffic and establish a community around a brand.

How Blog Hops work?

Blog Hops are usually arranged by one blogger (aka the host) or several bloggers (the co-hosts).

They have a specific theme, date frame, rules.

A blog hop may be open to everyone or closed where only a pre-determined group of bloggers can participate.

The blog hop goes live on the host's and co-host's blogs at the exact same time.

How to start a Blog Hop?

Go to your InLinkz dashboard.

2. Create a new link party.

3. Set a theme. Blog hops are usually centered around particular themes.

4. Establish the rules that participants should follow. Some common rules are to start following the host and the co-hosts, visit some of the submitted links and leave comments below the posts, place the blog hop's button on their blog etc.)

5. Share your link party with your co-hosts by sending them your code.

6. Determine the time you will go live.

Enjoy the hop.
