        What are the best RSS feeds & best RSS directories to be submitted to?

        What are the best Blog Directories to be listed in and submitted to?

        Which 20 social book marking sites do you recommend?

        Are there tools or software that can automate these actions?
        (If so, which ones do members recommend?)

        Now Answers to those questions would be practical, useful and powerful advice for many on here, I suspect.

        Thanks in advance.

          Most of the answers that you want you can find on Google.

          In regards to the social bookmarking sites I would recommend that you stick with the larger social sites (Reddit, StumbleUpon, Digg, Delicious, etc) StumbleUpon is especially known for being a great traffic driver.

      That's it ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

      And add the Social Media platforms in your list.
      Social Networking sites to be specific. Promotion of blog and websites are easy if the content is attractive and has a good/catchy topic/title.

      Hi KingT and Submitinme, there are so many ways to promote a blog and I'm sure ways you shared are really good.

      The good way I have to promote blog is to
      - Leave comments around blog, everytime you publish new information.
      - Submit your blog links to search enigne but not any others websites or places that you submit your blog links. If you do, you might drive a lot of spammer to your website.
      - Guest posting for others.
      - Monitor your blog with Social Media.

      And they are some of the ways you can to promote your website and hope that will help,

      Thank you - Ferb

      Talk about low level activies... Yuck, I'd shoot myself if I had to do that all the time.

      Have you looked into guest blogging? Go to where the traffic already is! Other sites get traffic, write something for them with a link back you , and syphon traffic.

        I'm with you James - if anyone's coming here for the first time and sees that rss/backlinking BS, it'd take em years to unlearn that rubbish. I like the guest blogging and Youtube routes - always go where the crowd is already built-in

      This is some solid advice. Its important to rank as well as get traffic. Putting a brand to your website/blog is key to getting the word out there with a name attached. Think about creating a brand people recognize.

        Alright alright! I would become some more generous:

        There is one golden rule for this strategy. Never use any automated tools to so this or you are in great trouble. Do the entire process manually.

        - Finding the best list of sites on each category and that is the first thing you need to do and that is what decides the effectiveness of the campaign. Some factors to look for are:
        - Avoiding directories in the same IP network
        - Taking only the sites with a manual review process in the list
        - Though page rank is no more valid, go for the ones with a page rank of over 2
        - Check the index status of the site which you choose

        Once you have the list of sites, then manually list your blog on each site on the right category and keep a track of the links going live. The process is time consuming for sure but this certainly works

    You can promote your website for free using various tools and strategies online. You can begin with social bookmarking and social networking. Social networking is a great platform for promotion and web advertisement, you can begin with top sites as FaceBook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and more.

    You can also do guest posting to obtain more traffic and take good advantage of sites like YouTube to promote your blog.

    You can promote your website/blog by submitting it first to Google or other search engine. In addition to using various tools and strategies online, such as social bookmarking and social networking, you can also add a signature on you email or your posts that includes your domain name. You can also promote your site by adding it to yellow pages directory and Google plus local business.
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[7345216].message }}
  • I think one way of promoting is through the help of social media such as Facebook, Twitter and some others. As time pass by, social media has made its way in bringing marketing to the next level, meaning that social networking sites are being used not only to be socially active, but also in the business and marketing aspects. Also, using such is free. So, if you want a free promotion, you can always count on social media. It could be a long time process anyway. But if you are patient with the results, you can try it.

This practice may harm your website . Because, you placed your signature under duplicate content. So, your website may lose their rankings due to this bad practice.. So, please avoid this and give your own suggestion.!

      OK so theres many different strategies but have to find out what will work best for you.

      Heres the general advice i give people in your position:

      1. Determine marketing goals. Get clear about the specific objectives you want to achieve. We all want more clients and more money, but consider the steps it takes to get the business leads that result in more business. Reasonable online marketing goals could include: increase in website traffic or foot traffic to your location, increased customer feedback on social sites, and generating more email opt-ins.
      2. List your current marketing outlets. Review this list and consider what can be integrated to maximize the use of social media. For example, if you use direct mail, could you add the links to your Facebook fan page or Twitter handle? If time or money is a concern, also consider what marketing activities can be shifted or replaced with social media. If you're running costly print ads in a local newspaper, but find you're not getting the results you want, would it be reasonable to start to shift some of those funds to hiring part-time staff to manage your social media?
      3. Determine your target audience or ideal client. It's important to identify exactly who you want to reach in order to develop a solid plan of action. Be as specific as possible. Consider industry, gender, age, purchase habits, income level, education level, etc. For the purpose of this blog, let's say that your plan is to target brides.
      4. Decide on the message. Now that you've established your goals and decided on your audience, it's time to determine how you plan to reach them. What do you have to say? What value can you offer? Using brides as an example, you may want to inform them of ways they can save money and still have the wedding of their dreams.
      5. Determine channels for reaching your audience. Where is your audience? If you are targeting brides, you might find that more brides are using Pinterest or watching YouTube videos. You could display DIY boards on Pinterest. You might create short video clips with money saving tips. You could even feature video testimonials of brides who have used your service and saved money. For small businesses doing it themselves, I recommend starting out with no more than two social media channels.
      6. Set a 90-day plan. It's tempting to try to do it all, but in order to remain consistent, you must start small. If you've decided to use Pinterest and YouTube, a reasonable 90-day plan could include building your social media community on these channels (remember to use your traditional or offline marketing avenues to help you get started) and engaging that audience with consistent, compelling content.
      7. Develop an editorial calendar. Now it's time to get specific on what you'll do in that 90-day plan. Develop a theme or focus-area for each month. Determine the type of content you'll post and frequency of the content.
      8. Build a maintenance schedule. This is where we get to the nitty-gritty. Create a maintenance calendar of daily, weekly, monthly, and as-needed tasks. Consider things like monitoring the accounts and responding to the audience, continuing to build the audience, and writing the content for the day, week or month.
      9. Assign responsibilities. If you're like many business owners, you might intend to do it all yourself. But I find that's not always realistic. Be sure to assign a specific person to each task - even if it is you. Also consider the time involved in completing each task so you can schedule your time appropriately.
      10. Evaluate. After 90 days, review your progress. Were your goals met? Did you reach your intended audience? What worked and what didn't work? Should you shift your focus or maintain what you've done? Are there other forms of media you want to consider? Be honest with yourself about these results and adjust your social media plan accordingly.

    Social media is the best way to promote your blog such as a facebook, twitter, pinterest, Google+ and many more. Your blog content should be unique, informative and catchy to readers. When ever you update content in your blog you should also have to share it in your social network so that your friends and followers like, share or retweet your post in this way you can promote your blog easily.

    Partnerships
    I have found that partnering with other websites has not only drawn traffic to my site, but has also given me a number of very useful contacts. When you apply to form a partnership with a site, make sure that you explain fully why a partnership would be mutually beneficial. Usually a partnership would consist of a quick link swap, and then you are done, however this should not be the case. If the owner of your partnering site usues an instant messenger such as MSN, you should add them and can then share views & ideas with each other. I have found that once you have made a consistent line of communication between a partner, there is much more room for further negotiation, such as join sponsorships and join ventures.

    Signatures
    LOTS of people advertise there site in forum signatures, it can work very well, but if you want it to work for you, there are two main things you need to take into consideration...

    Target audience:
    Advertising a computer forum, in a signature on a bakery forum just isn't going to work, you will need to be posting on a forum that is within the same niche as your own.

    Post quality:
    Somebody is more likely to click on your signature if they look up to you. Simply by answring a few questions on other forums and helping people, you can so much as double the CTR (click through rate) of your signatures. If you provide negative comments then people will subconsiously associate your username with negative thoughts and are thus less likely to click.

    Press Releases
    Press releases are a growing method of obtaining traffic to your site, however your press release will only yeild results under certain circumstances.
    Your press release needs to be content-rich, this means it has to be full of juicy gossip, and something that people (including our friend Mr. Google) will enjoy reading. A unique press release will stand out among a crowd of common press releases.

    Email Marketing
    Sadly i learn't the pro's and con's of email marketing the hard way, i made a mistake a few months ago and it upset quite a few people, however i have learn't a trick or two from the experience. The most important thing you need to consider when email marketing is DO NOT SPAM, people HATE spam and will turn completely against you for it. Only email people that are interested in your site. Dont just tell people to visit your site, give them a reason to!, you can pan out your email by explaining what your site does, and why it is better than the rest!

    Positive Contributions
    Make positive contributions to other sites, help your competitors rather than trying to foil them, and in turn they will look up to you, rather than you looking up to them.

    Recommended Read
    I recommend reading "How to win friends and influence people", the book has nothing to do with forums/communities, but it has alot to do with giving people what they want, and winning them over to your side; a very effective technique for gaining site popularity.

    Hello.

    To promote blog you need brainstorming strategy in social media. In these days good traffic you can get only from social media. Be active in social sites - facebook, pinterest, twitter etc. Give something away for free and build your list.
    Try to write unique content in your blog with embedded video in article. Then spin your article and submit to some web 2.0 (squidoo, blogspot, etc). To videos and web 2.0 add mass social bookmarks with drip feed but for your blogs unique post add only safe bookmarks manually (folkd, stumbleupon, delicious etc.).
    I have more than 100 videos in YouTube and most of them are in the first page of google with different keywords and VIDEO is #1 free traffic source.
    Don't waste your time in any other backlinking use only video, social networking and social bookmarking.
    If you want fast traffic then use pay per click like facebook ads.

    Good Luck

    All is long time and common strategy. First you need informative or interesting blog people may like. Choose the best Social Networking Sites especially facebook, Twitter and Google plus. For facebook create a fans page and make it also interesting. Use facebook ads or another social media service for global promotion for your page or use local admin help. Post regular content to your page and add for "for more details visit here" or anything else. I mean totally link your fan page with your website. Also link your facebook account with twitter. Use tweends to get real followers ,target people and inbox to visit your website to get helpful information or your word. Post your article in your blog and share it with google plus.
    Hope it could be help you!!

    There are many ways to promote online - the trick is to find the three or four things that work best for you and concentrate on those. That way you'll get maximum results from your time and not be worrying about trying to be everywhere and do everything at once.

    The things that work best for me are forums, content marketing, niche community sites and being active on popular blogs related to the niche of the site I'm promoting.

    If you're using WordPress, it's also worth giving it an SEO tune-up by using good permalinks and keywords and an effective SEO plugin like:

    There are actually a lot of free ways to promote your site however it is time consuming. You can use forum sites that talk about the same interest/niche that you into. Be active and build relationship with other members as they are your prospective buyers.

    You can also go to other blogs and post relevant comments and leave your site there to be their reference.

    These are effective techniques as long it is high in quality and not spammy type of promotions.

    As I see that most of us who are looking for blog promotion are currently active in this thread, I thought I would add a few more strategies as per the current trends. Infographics have been highly successful in blog promotion and taking the blog to a wider new audience. I have tested this strategy and in fact proven that it works and made a case study out of it as well. Here is how this is done:

    - Create (design) a cool infographic based on your niche's interesting information. This part is ofcource highly time consuming but trust me that you would help huge gains out of this.

    - Now publish the infographic in pinterest and grab the embed code. Write a short blog post in text, which would be an intro for the infographic and them publish it in your blog using the embed code.

    - Be sure to include the social media buttons in the blog before you do all these. And share the published blog in all social media sites.

    - Do this regularly for a month and see the reputation of your blog skyrocket.

    Another important note: Google Author Rank is another major parameter for the blogs. This is done by implementing structured data within your blog and then linking the author's Google plus profile. The process is pretty much straight forward too. This has good impact in search rankings and in addition to that your posts would appear in Google search along with the image of the author as well.
