Hi
I am trying to acquire / place links to my site from small to medium blogs but most of them run ads counters or nofollows.;
So i don't get the power.
What's a good way of finding such small to medium individual bloggers?
thanks

Are you trying to buy nofollow links on these blogs? If so, they may be very reluctant to sell you them for fear of a penalty. Your site may also be penalised for buying links. It would be far better to have newsworthy releases that you send to online publications to try and get coverage and links.

Ok, point taken. So how would you list up publications to give a release to. I mean mid-level ones that are not huge national publications?

Are there industry publications that have an online presence? Places where others might visit or subscribe to keep up with relevant news or events for your line of work?

I always get emails from websites pointing me to posts they have done which I may be interested to write about. I usually pass but every now and then an interesting one is sent which we write about and refer back to the original content. You could write an interesting unique article and then let these other websites know about it.

^ Yes, this could work as well.

I would mine the backlinks of your competitors to see which publications are linking to them.

Create one quality industry report which is a PDF (with Copyright notices all over it) and serve it by download from your site only. Then provide information/stats contained in that report to the relevant blogs (call that a press release if you will). The stats themselves make for an interesting story for their readers, but if their readers want to dig further, they will need to link to the whole report (which they need to register to read). This way, one quality piece of content on your site becomes the ultimate focus, but many people may write about the statistics or story inside that content.

Great strategy, but how do you get readers to link to your post in return for access to the report?

You don't, you just hope they do. Some will and a few will not.
