Promoting Your Blogs

  1. Would anyone care to share where they have promoted their blogs for free?

    The blog I need help with is bethechangeyouwant2c.wordpress.com.

  2. I am promoting my blog on Twitter and in 2 forums Blogengage.com and Websitebabble.com

    I know many other bloggers that use StumbleUpon, Digg and Facebook but I rarely gain traffic from these.

    Good luck with your blog.

  3. The most effective way of all to promote you blog free of charge is to comment, comment, comment on blogs in the same niche (same subject matter) as your own blog. You can also promote you blog in online groups, blog directories, forums and social network or social media site like twitter or friendfeed free of charge.

    (1) Don't play hide and seek with search engines. WordPress.com makes search engine verification easy. The easy to follow step by step instructions for registering and verufying your blog with Google, Yahoo and Bing can be found in the WordPress.com Support Documentation at the Webmaster Tools link. http://en.support.wordpress.com/webmaster-tools/

    (2) Search engine optimization, is the strategy and process of increasing the amount of visitors to a site by making structural changes to the site and the content in it that result in the site ranking high in search engine results. The higher a site ranks in the results of a search, the greater the chance that that site will be visited by a user who has been using a search engine to locate material of interest to them. http://onecoolsite.wordpress.com/2009/11/10/blogging-learning-seo-is-worth-the-effort/

    (3) There are twenty five steps all bloggers can use to increase targeted traffic to their blogs. The steps are found in this post and you will find they are internally linked to tutorials http://onecoolsite.wordpress.com/2009/01/15/twenty-five-steps-to-increase-blog-traffic/

    (4) This post provides step by step blog promotion instructions http://onecoolsite.wordpress.com/2009/11/07/blog-promotion-basics/

    (5) Social networks http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_social_networking_websites

  4. digg.com definitely draws good traffic. The wordpress.com search draws good traffic, google and links posted in other forums brings me good traffic. links in profiles in social networking sites draws minor traffic for me.
    But the element which is needed is well written good content and also unique content. Thus the search results will land on your site and you will appear on the top of google search.
    With using digg, feedburner, twitter, posting in forums, using blogsphere, technorati, ping services, my monthly visits curve is almost like f(x)=x^2 .
    But whatever it be good content is very important which insists a visitor to note down or bookmark your site, subscribe to your site and visit again.

  5. Borrow a marker, some paper and clear tape, write your URL out clearly, then find some telephone poles.
