Blogging is a very popular way for people to advertise products and websites. While blogging used to be popular for those who only sought to show their writing talents, more and more businesses are catching on to the benefits. By writing articles that have keywords and are search engine friendly, it is easy to drive traffic to any website or product that you desire. Most people don’t have any idea how to publicize a blog though.
While the idea is great and most can grasp how it all works, many people don’t understand how to get people to the blog in the first place. Here are some basic ideas that really do work. Social media sites need to become your best friend if you are going to get the people to your blog.
Setting-up a page on Facebook and adding people who are interested in things that may be related to your product or services is a great start. You should also join LinkedIn, Pinterest, Twitter and any other social networks and forums that you can find. Understand that you can’t just show-up on a forum one day and post links to your blog. Look for places where you can comment and actually be involved. Then, when you can, appropriately suggest the blog.
You should also take advantage of tools such as StumbleUpon. You can list your blog link as something that other readers may be interested in. List the keywords that they may search to find this article. Be careful to use these key words in your articles. Write informative articles and back-link them to your website.
The blog platform that you use can also make a difference. Two of the best and largest blog platforms that exist are Blogger and WordPress. These two sites offer many tools that help you advertise your blog, categorize your articles and choose keywords to tag your posts. In time, this will help you to build quite an audience. By linking your blog to Facebook and Twitter, which is something that WordPress allows you to do, you can gain a very large readership rather quickly.
When it comes to how to publicize a blog, there really are a lot of various ways and the more you can think outside the box, the better you will do. Think of things that would keep you coming back and implement them. Experiment as much as you can and have fun.
