I've started a rather unique profile directory at www.gay-tribe.com -- And I'm inviting _select_ SEM-SEO savvy Gay Bloggers and LGBT themed-owned-operated website owners to submit a profile for consideration.
The site is architected to utterly leverage your Social Media presence at Twitter, Google+ and FaceBook, provide an anchored backlink to your site or blog, and high link-juice. Each profile entry is a blog post in itself, features social media sharing buttons (including Ping.fm) for you or others to use, each category page has it's own RSS feed that auto-updates, all new profile listings will get OnlyWired once they go live.
The idea behind this is so you and others can easily Connect, Like, Follow, Plus, Bookmark and Cross-Promote with those you're interested in - and provide a mechanism to further explore mutual, beneficial link exchange opportunities within your niche.
*** This is NOT a directory for smut, xx sites, or any of a BILLION 'nekked-hot-guy' photo-blog picture sites on subdomained freebie blogs. ***
That said: If you're a legit Queer Topic Blogger, LGBT Business or Gay Resource site - on your own domain - you're welcome to submit a COMPLETE profile for review that can have 10-times more SEO fire-power than 99% of the links you might otherwise build.
I think there's a better, smarter way to build quality links and send social signals in a Mid-Post Panda SEO world. And that's by forming a Tribe of Power-Players who see the value in this - and are willing to do a bit of clicking around to HELP OTHERS listed in the directory as well for a Win-Win. If that describes you -- visit www.gay-tribe.com and let's kick some internet butt.
