My Magical tip:
I suggest you to submit more than just your own content to get approval from the moderators in the initial stage. Whenever you find useful information related to this small business community, share it on Bizsugar users.
Bizsugar is a dofollow blogging community which has more than 1 million users active participants and receives thousands of spam entries every day. A combination of a technological spam filtering and manual moderation is undertaking to avoid the spam sites. Smart and friendly moderators with diverse backgrounds around the world are making the huge part of the success of Bizsugar.
I advise the bloggers to submit the blog posts in appropriate categories to get approved by the moderators. I often see some bloggers just post their articles and they only vote for their friends. If they do so, it is not a community and it is meaningless too. They should share the blog posts of other bloggers; give vote and comments for their favorite posts. With these activities, the bloggers could expand their online reputation as a leader in their niche and drive more traffic to their blog.
