Ways to promote your Blog

Blog Promotion 10 comments

Boston.com has a good article on ways to promote your weblog called Don’t let your blog get lost in the fog.

They write - ‘But even good blogs can go unread, without a little extra effort to attract visitors.

What’s needed are some eyeball magnets — blogging tools that will bring new traffic to your site. And there are plenty to choose from.

Syndication, for one. That’s the popular practice of adding a tag to your blog that will automatically let readers know when you’ve added material.

On many popular blogs, you’ll see a link marked RSS, XML, or Atom. Plug that link into a syndication software program, and you’ll get an update every time the website is updated. Most avid blog readers use syndication programs to keep tabs on their favorite sites. Adding syndication to your own blog can deliver a quick boost in readership.

The leading blog-hosting companies, like Google Inc.’s Blogger, provide syndication; it’s just a matter of switching it on and adding a bit of extra code to your blog. If you’re serious about expanding your audience, it’s the first move to make.’

  • I’ve followed all of the above suggestions, but I seem stuck at about 50 visitors per day for my sexuality blog. I’ve had all these in place for about 5 months but my numbers don’t go up. Am I just in a subject that doesn’t get many clicks?

  • Someone please explain me how to use RSS!I also want to know (excactly) how to copy and paste!I am a begginer!

  • if your blog is made with blogger your xml feed should be www.yourblog.blogspot.com/atom.xml. submit that to feedburner.com and it will give you some buttons to add to your blog. ctrl+c to copy and ctrl+v to paste.
    hope this helps

  • Thanks for the tips!!! :-)

  • Can mixed feedburner and wordpress feeds influence my visits?

  • I’m a beginner blogger, when you said, “On many popular blogs, you’ll see a link marked RSS, XML, or Atom. Plug that link into a syndication software program, and you’ll get an update every time the website is updated.” What do you mean by that and how do you “plug” the link into a syndication software program. Thanks

  • Hotpoter - maybe ‘plug’ was the wrong word. Copy and paste the link into your feed reader. Most feed readers have a ‘add feed’ function to allow this.

  • Visitors are the key of any successful Website, with out visitors any website dies. Additional of adding RSS feeds the blog owner can build traffic by leaving comments of other blogs.

    It is important to always comment in relevancy of the topic or it will look like spam. Also submitting to blog directories is also an important step to get know.

    And the most important step is to submit the blog to directories and search engines, remember keywords are the main key search engines pick your site.

  • When you have a good syndication set up, you should keep working on writing press releases, submitting to blog directories, post to usenet, forums etcs… It depends on how vastly your blog is spread over internet through various online sources.

  • Good work. Your blog is a tutorial for new bloggers. I have learned a lot from it, and still consider myself a learner. Please to say that because of “enternetusers” many new bloggers has been taking this new phenomena seriously. And I am one of them.

    Thanks pro-blogger!
