How to Promote your Blog

There are several simple and free ways to promote your blog to increase your traffic. I use several methods but here are two described in depth: Article Writing Sites and Twitter.

Article Writing Sites

I use article writing sites to promote my blog by writing an article that has a similar theme as my blog or a certain post and then leaving a link at the bottom of the article. For example I wrote a blog post entitled 101 Christmas Activities and Traditions, so I wrote a whole series of Christmas articles and included a link to the blog post at the bottom of each one. Not everyone who reads the article will click through but some readers will be interested and you can tell by your blog stats where your readers have come from. I generate my traffic from two main writing sources ExpertsColumn and WikiNut (I also use Triond but have yet to see results) and not only do you have the opportunity to gain more readers to your blog you can also make a few extra dollars by writing articles. Definitely a win-win.

If you want to join WikiNut you can do so here

Twitter

I am fairly new to Twitter and it is a little more difficult to promote your blog on twitter unless you have a decent number of followers. In order to gain more followers you can follow people and hope they follow you back, or you can ask people in chat, friends on Facebook or member of forums to be your followers. But even if you do not have very many followers at all (I sadly have only 10) you can still reach a large number of people by posting in popular forums or by contributing to a related hash tag discussion and leaving your blog link. I have seen considerable views through my twitter links by using popular keywords in my tweets like Christmas or Xmas (just make sure they relate to what you are trying to promote)

You made a comment about Triond and yet to see results. The point is though that you are setting up links from other articles and ultimately that impacts your search ranking.

I think my last comment has disappeared, but again, a good article!
