Thanks to Google Webmaster Tools, I can find out what other CPA and tax bloggers link to me in their blogrolls. Below is part of a screenshot showing the blogs with the most links to my site.
If you are interested in tax or accounting, these blogs are worth following.
- Roth & Company, PC Tax Update Blog by Joe Kristan in Des Moines, Iowa. As you can tell by the number of links, this guy is a blogging machine. My only complaint is that he blogs so much I can’t keep up with every post. Joe explains tax law in a way that is easy for everyone to understand. He doesn’t use big words or refer to obscure sections of the Internal Revenue Code. He also has the uncanny ability to find humor in every tax court case he blogs about.
- Beancounter Ramblings by Chad and Donna Bordeaux in Charlotte, North Carolina. Chad and Donna effectively market their firm with their website and blog. They blog not only about Federal tax issues, but also state and local tax news. Like Joe, they have a good sense of humor and are fun to follow on Twitter.
- CPA Technology Blog by Brian Tankersley. Brian is the technical editor of the CPA Practice Advisor and teaches educational courses for K2 Enterprises and Becker CPA Review. Brian blogs about technology topics that impact the accounting profession. Brian’s blog, in part, inspired me to create mine.
- There are a countless number of blogs on blogspot. Google Webmaster Tools doesn’t identify which one links to me. I think that most, if not all of these links come from PRI Tax and Bookkeeping Services, which I became aware of thanks to a few kind comments on my blog with links to their site. This tax and bookkeeping firm is located in Elgin, Illinois, and on their blog, I am listed as one of only two “favorite blogs.” What an honor!
I appreciate being listed in these blogs’ sidebars. They provide me with quality inbound links that contribute to my PageRank in Google. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that after Roth & Company added a link to my blog, there was a dramatic increase in traffic from Google searches.
