Ways To Promote Your Blog

Different Ways To Promote Your Blog

Here are some different ways to promote your website, video, or blog online. I saw it covered in a lot more detail in a page called SEO tips for article writers and bloggers, but I will now summarize what was in that thousand word article here. 

First of all, it's a good idea to get yourself a money site, or a hosted Wordpress website that is selling something, or that makes a good deal of money from something like ads. 

If you are relying on Adsense to make the money, you will have to at the very least choose a topic that doesn't have a lot of competition, but a reasonably high pay per click rate. 

That's not easy to do, and that's why a lot of people decide to try to sell an affiliate product instead. That in itself has a lot of problems. 

I personally chose to sell my own services doing anything that people wanted me to do. Things like making videos, getting them followers, writing articles, giving SEO, SMO, and general internet marketing advice. 

Whatever you decide on, if it's building a list of targeted subscribers, or trying to build a site where people make content for you, or return all the time to do one thing or another, you need to have a plan. 

I prefer the idea of having one main site, and doing everything else online to drive traffic back to the site, and help it's SEO. 

A lot of sites have a problem with people promoting their sites in a way that looks like spam, so you have to take into account the terms and conditions of each site involved. 

SEO Tips For Bloggers

It's not easy to say you should just do one thing or another, but this blog isn't doing as well as my main blog, simply because it's a free Blogger blog, rather than a hosted blog on my own server. 

My strategy is to have one site that showcases my services as a social media consultant, and build a link pyramid to it in a natural looking way from all over the place, but particularly from high quality places. 

For example, I would start by sharing a page on my main site with all of my social connections on Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, and maybe a few others. 

I don't bother so much with the social bookmarking anymore, and what I mainly focus on is trying to create high quality back links. 

What makes a high quality back link you ask? It has to have a lot of text on it, and perhaps a photo or video or both, with keyword related alt text and file names. 

It has to have sub-headings, mention the keyword phrase, in this case ways to promote your blog a couple of times, but not so much as to attract attention as being "over optimized".

Some of the sites that you might write on are Knoji, Blogger, Yahoo Voices, Squidoo, Hub Pages, eHow and The Guardian, (if you're in the US), Info Barrel, Triond, Ezine, and maybe Typepad. 

I'd avoid, because they suspended my free blog after four years of writing on it for no reason. I probably was being overly commercial, but that whole site is really low quality, and when people say Wordpress, they mean 

So you do all of that, and then you get social media followers and tweet to them, and keep writing, and that's about it. Hope that was some helpful tips on SEO for bloggers and article writers.
