Commenting

Find the quality, reputable, authority blogs on your topic at Technorati.com and blogsearch.google.com

Use bloglines to monitor daily posts

Add comments frequently (at least every other day) to related blogs.

Include 1 keyword rich link to your blog/website in signature

Use real e-mail address in case blog owner wants to contact you. Never know what could come of it
