How to promote blog effectively

Wed Mar 14, 2007 8:15 am

hi everyone...

I actually have two questions on how to promote blog effectively.


1) I wonder how many different ways you could promot your blog?

2) Does pinging and submit your blog to directories is the same thing?

thanks much in advance!!!!

The best promotion is good content. The directories will find you automatically. Blogs have built-in marketing functions.

Ping is about updates to a blog, submission is about placing your blog in the colections of similar categories on other sites.

You can use PPC, SEO and ezine advertising to promote your blog. And also social bookmarking such as:

http://del.icio.us
http://furl.net

For the submission, you only submit to blog directories one time once you have created your blog to introduce your blog to blog directories.

For the pinging - You can use pinging several times once you have your new post on your blog. It is means you let directories know if your blog has new post. And also let search engines to index your new post of your blog. For pinging service, go to http://pingomatic.com

To make your blog get indexed by major search engines and even get top ranking of them for particular keyword, you must pay attention to important factors:
1. keyword - choose keyword that have high demand and low competition. And related to your product or service you promote.
2. domain, description & content - related to your keyword that you choose. You can use the keyword to domain of your blog. Put the keyword in content several times, but don't spam this. And also put the keyword in description of blog 1-3 times.
3. income links - without this, your blog never get indexed by major search engines. To get top ranking of major search engines for the keyword, your blog need hundreds or even thousands of income links from other websites that have high PR and related to your blog.

I found useful article about how to promote your blog:

Of course one of the most important things to promote your blog is to get involved in other blog discussions. Post relevant comments and be sure to include a link back to your blog.

Remember, people will be reading your comments, so make them relevent and interesting. "Convince" the reader to click on your link to check out what you're all about.

and dont forget some of these...

Mon Nov 12, 2007 6:09 am

places like:

cocomment
digg (digg yourself!)
newsvine
rollyo
msnlive
googlegroups
stumbleupon
squidoo


i could go on and on....

but what i would do is create a mastersheet somewhere. in your mastersheet, put your username and password for all the sites you join. of course, dont make it available online, and even keep it off your computer altogether if you can. start with perhaps 25 of the bigger sites and regularly make visits and post something on them. remember to plaster your face on everything as well. you could become 'just another link' if you don't. personality.... yeah.....

If your blog is an acclaimed hit you don't have to look back.Blogger itself has an array of settings, many of which work to your advantage in this endeavor. This first grouping is quite simple and just requires that you sign in to your Blogger account and flip a few switches.Weblogs.com is a blog update notification service that many individuals and services use to track blog changes. When your setting is activated, Blogger will notify weblogs.com that you have updated your blog. That means your blog will be included in various "recently updated" lists on the web as well as other blog-related services.Traffic-grabbing techniques is a little more persnickety and not as readily activated. The basic gist of this section of methods is "If you build it well they will come." You'll need to incorporate the other aspects of self-promotion, but it's true that writing a great blog goes a long way towards repeat visitors and word of blog.Write quality content and do it well.If your "style" is bad writing, worse grammar, no punctuation, and an ugly design, that might be okay for a niche crowd. But the idea here is to get a big crowd so fix yourself up a bit, pull it together man, have some respect for your readers, and discover a style that shines brightly through good blogging.The other factors you need to keep in mind while blogging on the net are:
1)Publish regular updates 2)Think of your audience.3)Keep search engines in mind 4)Keep your posts and paragraphs short. Be unique and be sure that your data is content relative.Another samll topic that creeps up in my mind now is prefference.Well just like other bloggers who blog through common and basic accounts I to have a preffered account.
