31 posts in this topic

Nowadays blogs are not only web journals anymore. Blogs are also used by corporations to keep in touch with their customers. Online marketers also use niche targeting blogs to review or sell products and services. I'm going to show you 5 easy but effective methods to advertise your business blog and reach new visitors

1 - Join related forums

Forum traffic is very efective advertising way. So do a simple search on google and find forums related to your niche (business). Sign up, add your blog in signature and start posting on suitable subjects. Also every forum have an advertising category. Place your link there. also you can ask other to review it. Do not SPAM or you will get banned.

2 - Comment on blogs

Find bloggers that write on the same or related subjects as you do and comment on their articles with your link. WordPRess and Blogger , along as other blogging platforms allow placing links inside the comment box or have a special input field for the link.

3 - Enlist your site in blogs directory

Blogs are becoming more and more popular each day. There are many blog directories and you should add your site on at least 5 of these directories.

http://www.bloggingfusion.com/

Here is a list of 20 blogging directories http://topgoldforum.com/20-blog-directories-t295.html

4 - Submit articles related to your content

Article marketing is still a powerful way to get targeted visitors to your blog. Write articles related to your business and send them to article directories. Make sure you do not send same article to more than 10 articles as will be rated as duplicate content and will not be accepted or if it will pass the admin's verification will not drive too much traffic.

5 - Submit your posts to social websites

Social Web 2.0 sites are a very good way to get visitors on your blog. And most important is a very easy and effective advertising method. All you have to do is to submit your written post and watch visitors coming to your blog. What makes the difference from 10.000 visitors coming and only few hundreds is the quality of the post. If you have good, viral content then the success is guaranteed.

Yep thats right Alan. IS very important to keep your blog updated.. so make a habbit to update your blog once a day or once every 2 days or every 3 days or every week just make sure you maintain the updates interval. That's mainly for 2 reasons

1) Just like for newsletters your readers tend to get a habit to receive newsletters every day, every week etc this happens to blog as well. You users should know when new content is posted on your site. So educate them to know when will find new content on your blog.If 4-5 weeks they will see new posts every day and then only 2 or 3 times per week will think you will not work as much as before on your blog or you have other interests. and then to move to other blogs and so on.

2) Search engines act the same way. If for a period you post content daily they will set the bot to come every day and index new content. If comes for few days and doesnt find new content will update the settings and will come once every few days and so on..so the content will be indexed slower.

Make sure you ping your posts so search engines will come and index your content as fast as possible

As a blogger, I really search for never ending means of advertising my blog. Traffic in our blog is really important aside from blog content. To drive most traffic, I really focus much in my blog content. I do also forum posting if I have extra time. Furthermore, I do also blog commenting.

Blog Commenting is not overly effective. Generally content is a good way to build up your blog, but you shouldn't use your marketing time to work on content more. You can forum post, have a referral signature to get you paid, and post on certain forums as a paid poster getting paid for triple the money. Good reply though!

Blogs always have been a good source of traffic for the sites since they have fresh content which is being indexed and updated by Google.

I agree with using all of these resources to promote your blog and build up readership. Writing a quality blog post is not enough, you need to spend time afterwards getting the link out there.

I have recently started using content curation sites such as bagtheweb and list.ly too. I post my own posts to them as well as links to articles of interest. Another way of getting followers who are going to see your blog links.

Forgot to mention, the most important thing really is the content and the niche. You really need to be niche specific in order to be successful.
