This type of linking is usually devalued or even ignored. You will probably need some higher quality links to get the sites noticed in the search results.
Selling products from a blog is not standard practice at all -- not what blogs are usually all about. Still I suppose you can do whatever you want. It's your site.
I'd suggest you study this Google Search forum and others here for a while. I think you will pick up a whole new flavor about what it takes to get good results on Google. A good thread to start:
Successful Site in 12 Months with Google Alone [webmasterworld.com]
Thank you dear
I really appreciate your fact,but the only thing i would like to know that does it harms to my site or even my blog if i link my site to blog or try to promote my products through blogs?
waiting for your reply
There's no such thing as absolute certainty with any search engine. Over the years many things can change. My opinion right now would be there's no harm, but no help either -- that's just one man's opinion.
Creating a blog that relates to a main site can be advantageous, in as much as you can place information on the blog which you may not want to have on the main site.
If I do a keyword search for my domain name, my blog is listed about number 6. The main site is listed at 1.
I often put general topic of interest posts on the blog, but I also use it to promote the main site, in as much as I will write a post about lets say email scams, or a welcome note about a valued customer.
Si, IMO a blog can be useful in many ways.As to whether the link from one to the other has any value, I don't really care, apart from the fact that readers can go from one site to the other.
How can i market my blog? or how can i get good ranking in google and other SEs.
Which are types of blog marketing.
Please help me out. I have already posted more 30 posts in my blog but still it doesnt shows any ranking.
thanks in advance.
Blog marketing is a pretty large area to study in my opinion. And to have a successful blog, you have to be a good blogger. That means notonly regularly updating your blog, but also reading other topical blogs, linking to them from your blog, commenting in other blogs so those blog owners and their visitors visit yours, would link to you if you hve a quality blog, submitting the blog and its feed in various blog directories... tagging the posts appropriately etc etc.
Pretty painful and serious work.

Same as for any other website. In particular, write great and unique content and get inbound links.

It can take time - don't expect large volumes of traffic for the first 6 - 12 months.
|Secondly can i post my products to sell in that blog? |
There is no technical reason why you can't, but then of course it's no longer a blog, unless the content of it directly relates to your sales of your products.
Thank You very much for all your replies.
As i said i m from india & i m having one blog related to indian festival "Rakhi", this type of blogs are very less so how can i post comments on related blog.
So please help me in this issue also..
Is your blog hosted on your web site, or are you using a blog hosting service?
We are thinking of adding a blog to our site, but I theorize that we might get better results by having it on our server instead of the blog software company enjoying all that free traffic and links to their server.
For example, if your site is example.com, I would think it would be better to have your blog on your server as www.example.com/blog
as opposed to www.BlogServiceRPovder.com/yourblog
Anyone agree? Disagree? Don't care?

Hosting your blog on your own hosting is much better than hosting it on free blog hosts...although google gives few extra points to blogspot. The good thing with blogspot is that you can publish your blog on your own hosting....
I think the best thing would be to get blog's own domain and own hosting...on that way it'll look like a real complex website and spiders will love it.
As for the main question: "Is Linking to Blog Harmful?" , I myself tell you from my own experience that it is not harmful by any means...even it can help sometimes. Linking from blog to "real site" is very helpful! That's based on my experience.
