    1. facebook has that reputation of bring traffic at an alarming rate if use sensibly and not to mention social interation of like minded bloggers for us to network with.

  2. The importance of Marketing is often overlooked by many. What maybe some don’t realize that “blogging” in itself is some form of Marketing. We can even say that “blogging” is nothing more that Content Marketing 🙂 Other “vehicles” such as Twitter and FB are additional promotional tools that we should all be using as not only it drives traffic to our websites, it helps us build great relationships and gain credibility.

  5. Nice post bro. Yes, you cannot simply write and leave. You need to make it more visible to get your ultimate results. I have been doing the same for my posts too but it is not kind of aggressive marketing. Mostly I have been using facebook and Twitter for the same and the results have been quite good especially from the facebook. Honestly, I haven’t been digging or stumbling much. I do it occasionally for my posts. I should be doing it more often for my blog posts. Sites like and also get me some good amount of people on my blog. Commenting on other blogs also get me a good number of people on my blog. Honestly, I am not able to give more time for my blog marketing. Mostly I am leaving it to my visitors to make it more viral. They are doing it for me but anyways, I should be marketing it in a more better way to get the expected results..

    1. In my opinion you need to spend time on social networking sites to see the benefit however it is not just about the time you spent, it has to do with how that time is spent.

  7. Hey Gary,
    I am often surprised by people dismissing facebook as another trend. In the past I too was guilty of doing that but quickly changed my view when I learned how it can help to create a brand image. In my opinion, steady buildup of reputation happens when we deliver the right content and do some good marketing and planning alongside.

    Great post. Thanks for sharing.

    1. FaceBook is a grat place to market your blog the only drawback i find with facebook is that most of the users are actually not bloggers however if you are doing paid advertising on facebook them the results can be great Thanks for you comment

    1. Thanks for your comment i am honoured to know that you are taking this blog seriously but you have written your twitter name incorrectly howver that said i am delighted to have your here thanks for the comment

  8. I think one of the most important marketing techniques for a blog is to interact with your audience. This can easily be done through twitter. Help people out and offer advice, let people see a bit of your personal lives, I think all these things can work.

    I follow many design blogs, and mostly the thing which keeps me coming back is the quality of the advice, tips and tutorials. I do like a personal touch to it all though.

    1. Hi Tom first i must say welcome to my blog here at you hit the nail on the head when you say that the most important technique is to interact with your audience that is absolutely true and you have made a brilliant point Thanks for adding your voice to the debate.

  9. At first, I was more into providing informative and high quality content through article marketing in promoting my business. Although I was already into Twitter when 2010 rolled in, I didn’t start using Facebook and blog commenting until the fourth quarter of that year. When I did, I found out their worth in marketing my business. I am now enjoying good rankings in search engines for my primary key phrase.

    So, I believe you have offered something valuable to your readers here, Gary. Thanks for posting this. 🙂

    1. Facebook has you rightly said is a great marketing media you need to create a facebaook page and invite people to like it and interact with friends leave comment be active these are just some of the ways you can start with.

    1. The whole point of Marketing is to gain exposure letting the world know about our product and services getting them to just us and at the same time build your brand

    1. Just keep on doing what you are doing with these two great marketing media social media maketing is now the order of the day even politician and celebrities are now jumping on the band wagon. It may seems difficult at time but the end result is what matters.

  11. In order to effectively market any blog, you really do need to keep up the marketing effort. If this means commenting on thousands of blogs, thousands of twitter posts and facebook friends then so be it. It’s all backlinks at the end of the day.

    I like to think of it more as a reward for participating in the blogosphere, makes it more fun. 😀

    1. The more effort you put into your Marketing Strategy the better the end results facebook and twitter are two great medias to use and do this and as you said we can make it fun

  12. Aside from SMO, I am also using VSEO (Video SEO). In the same way that we apply SEO in websites, same tasks are applied to videos that were published in YouTube or other video submission sites. You still have to generate and select keywords and integrate them on titles and descriptions so that your videos get to the top of search engine results. With keyword rich descriptions and titles, you can now begin uploading your videos to several video submission websites.

  13. I certainly agree with your 3 strategies here. I would also like to add Link Referral, you get to have unique visitors each day when you register to Link Referral and that helps improve your ranking as well.

  14. Blog commenting and active participation in social networking sites have a great impact on your blog success. And many bloggers have proven that it is an effective way of growing your blog. As I’ve said many bloggers are already doing this practice therefore you have to be extra creative in implementing your marketing strategy so you’ll get ahead with other bloggers.
