What are Blog Hops?

Tags: blog hops, share a link party


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?

1.
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.

7. Enjoy the hop.
