So you have a blog and want to market it and make it a successful blog. How do you do this?
How do you go about getting your blog out there to be seen and known by others? How do you
draw readers and keep them coming back for more? There are many ways to get your blog out
there and known by others. This can be known as challenging for some and just quite easy for
others. If you have ever had a successful blog before then you know what it takes. You are not
going to get anywhere by just setting up a blog and hoping that people will find it and read it.
You are not going to gain any links, nor a higher search engine ranking by just having a blog.
This is all part of blog marketing. Anyone can do it, even you.
Successful blog marketing tip number one. When you first create a blog, of course it is unheard
of. No one knows anything about the blog unless you give them the link and show it to them.
However, for a new blog that has never been seen, there are many ways to get it out there and
known. You just need to know how. The first thing that you can do is to allow RSS feeds be
taken from your blog. Allow other websites and blogs to publish your same exact blog. When
you do this, they are giving you a link back to your blog, and also telling their readers all about
your blog. You will get more traffic than ever with this tool. RSS feeds are wonderful for
promoting and getting your blog out there.
Blog marketing tip number two. Update your blog frequently. We can not put enough emphasis
on this tip. If you tell your readers that you are going to update your blog daily, then do it. If you
tell them that you will be writing in your blog weekly, don’t let them down. Your readers are
what makes your blog successful. You may not realize this in the beginning, and you will have
few readers in the beginning as well, but you will eventually build a readership base and have
people checking out your blog regularly. Maybe you do not plan on telling your readers how
often you will update your blog. That is ok too. However, think about this, if you were reading a
blog on a weekly basis, and you expected to see the blog that you like to read updated at least
once a week, you would be very disappointed to find out that it was not. Sure, things happen
that might prevent you from updating, and that is expected, and excused, but week after week
Tip number three. While you are working on your readership base, and trying to gain readers,
you are going to find that commenting on blogs that are relevant to yours will surely help. Find
a blog that is on the same topic to yours, or close to it and leave comments. You can also
make a track back with your blog postings to comment on your own blog. Doing so will
probably more than likely give someone else the urge to track back to your blog. Which will be
good for it as well. Commenting on blogs that get many comments will make yours be seen by
those interested in that market. You will gain traffic and readers that way, and it is easy as well
The fourth blog marketing tip. Learn and apply SEO to your blogs. SEO is search engine
optimization. You are going to find that if you want your blog to go anywhere, you need SEO,
and you need to know how to use it to the advantage of your blog. Just like a website, a blog
will be better off optimized.
