Note To BBA/DSM Crowd

Hints for generating greater exposure for DSM-related posts:

If you include a Technorati Tag at the bottom of (or anywhere within) your DSM posts, as follows:

<a href="http://technorati.com/tag/downing+street+memo" rel="tag">downing street memo</a>

then ping Technorati, your posts will get wider exposure.  (So far, only a few of us are doing that.)  See this page to find out what the tag does, or this page for a general explanation.

We can increase exposure even more if you add a marquee to your blogs using the following:

<marquee><script language="JavaScript" src="http://ns2.bigbold.com/digest/95b264fa9c14/3552a8cde0bc.js"> </script>

This script creates a marquee that scrolls the titles of the ten most recent DSM posts tagged with the Technorati Tag above.  If you use the script, you should put the following acknowledgment somewhere on your blog:

<a href="http://bigbold.com/rssdigest/index.html"><img width="88" height="31" src="http://bigbold.com/rssdigest/3.gif" border="0" alt="Some Feeds via BigBold" /></a>

to give credit to the service that hosts the script.  

You can ping Technorati here, or use Ping-O-Matic.  Some blogs are configured to ping automatically.  See this page for information about that.

If none of this makes any sense to you, just ignore it; or better yet, find someone who knows HTML to explain it to you.
