What is the best way to promote a blog post?

24 replies
Hi Warriors,
I am starting out my IM career by making an adsense site. Its a blog and I am looking for direction on what to do after I create a post. If I ping that post...does that mean it will get indexed? Also, if I socially bookmark that post, do I have to ping each of the social bookmarks to get them indexed too?

What are some recommendations from other veteran warriors on how to best promote you blog posts to get them indexed and backlinks as well.

Thanks

IH

    If your on a wordpress blog the posts get pinged automatically. If not you can do it manually here:
    Ping-o-Matic!

    Social bookmark sites tend to get spidered very quickly by the search engines so you don't need to ping them but it wouldn't hurt.

    A simple way to increase your efforts is through your RSS feed. Again if your on a wordpress blog it will automatically create a feed for you which would be:
    http://yourblogname.com/feed

    You can submit your RSS feed to RSS directories and also submit your site to blog directories. A big list of these directories is here:

    Hope that helps

    Hi "Internet Hopeful":

    Pinging is a great way to let Google know your post is out there.

    You could also use SocialMonkee.com and IMautomator to socially book mark your post. They are both free.

    And, so I do not give your "analysis paralysis" you could put it on your Facebook wall and as people for comments and to share it so you can get ridiculed - hee hee. No, seriously. Get them to converse with you or share it so it shows up on their walls and all their friends walls. That will spread your blog post and get exposure.

    Hope that all made sense.

  • After I write a new post, I will comment on similar Blogs that use Commentluv.
    This works really well for getting a new post out there.

    Some ways I'd promote my blog post is by pinging, social bookmarking, spreading it across social media sites like facebook, twitter, and youtube. And I'd also do guest blogging.

    First of all congrats on getting started, now set your goals & work on it.

    To promote your blog post, social bookmarking is a must. If you regularly post on your blog (good content) then you can setup a Twitterfeed.com account so that whenever you post something on your blog, a tweet is being made automatically on your behalf. You can do this with Facebook as well.

    With time, your blog will gain PR & increase traffic. I wish you all the best!

    God Bless!

    Cheers
    Ciel!

    Pinging is definitely a great way to get your post indexed, I recommend pingomatic.com and pingler.com. Also, I highly recommend sharing the post on social media sites ex; facebook, twitter, digg etc. Hope that helps.

  • Well most powerful thing nowadays is Social media....... i think you should go throw it ... it will increase your blog's popularity as well as visits as well as traffic too..... secondly social bookmarking as you are doing is also a nice way to get indexed.... pinging and RSS also very nice..... if you have blog on blogspot then it will be more useful.....

    Ttry to make some informative videos with explanation of topic and include that in your blog , put some interesting stuffs in your blog.... so that end user will also like it and share it.... do some link building also so that your blog will also appear in top searches for some specific key phrases.....

    Be sure to submit your post to article directories as well. If it is helpful enough it could get syndicated around the web and bring you more traffic.

    Pinging is good to get faster index, at the same time, only pinging will not help you to get more traffic, you have to get more backlinks too, There are various methods to get backlinks, I think in your case, blog comments (leaving your valuable comment on others blog) will help you to create a friendly network with other bloggers and that will help you to get a backlink from their site and drive more traffic from their sites. Apart from all these, target search engines, like Google to get massive free traffic

    Write a Keyword-Rich Page Title. Write a descriptive title for each page -- rich in keywords you want people to find you with -- using 5 to 8 words. Remove as many "filler" words from the title (such as "the," "and," etc.) as possible, while still making it readable. This page title will appear hyperlinked on the search engines when your page is found. Entice searchers to click on the title by making it a bit provocative. Place this at the top of the webpage between the <HEAD></HEAD> tags, in this format: <TITLE>Your content</TITLE>. (It also shows on the blue bar at the top of your web browser.)

    Hope this helps

    Ping it afrer you post it and then post in on social networks.

    I used to do this manually until I got this free software in the War Room here.

    http://www.warriorforum.com/war-room...-networks.html

    Now, when I post anything, I just add it to this and it gets posted to over 20 social networks immediately.

    Make sure to use the actual url for the blog post itself and not just the url for the main blog so that it takes people directly to the post.

    You could try creating a channel on yourtube and create a page on facebook, if you have not already done so. Share a tweet everyday to your followers if you have new updates about it. Don't forget to bookmark everytime you have a new post or videos. Also, article submissions are a great way! Hope this helps.

    Use RSS feed submission to distribute your blog posts. Then share blog posts on your Facebook profile and twitter account. After that run a social bookmarking campaign to improve the popularity. These steps are needed to increase targeted traffic to your web site.
