How to promote Blog?

By Ajay, Category: Blog Promotion, Date: April 24, 2008

So you have written a tantalizing blog and you dream it to be on the top of search results and you just though that it is going to happen automatically by grace of God?

You are wrong, publishing a blog doesn’t not necessarily always populate your blog on the Internet. You have to promote your blog in the same way as you do for any website.

Blog promotion involves SEO, SMO and other traditional Search Engine Optimization techniques to make your blog appear in Google top 10.

Feed what is this?

Each and every blog should have a feed/rss URL, which varies from one platform to another.

For blogspot the feed url can be obtained by simply adding atom.xml at the end of URL

Example:

If your blogspot URL is http://swamiseo.blogspot.com then the feed url for this blog would be

http://swamiseo.blogspot.com/atom.xml

Once way to verify if you have got the correct feed url is to check the URL itself and you should see all the posts in that blog listed on one page. If you see error page then you have got it wrong.

You can also get the feed url from any feed burner tool.

Hunt for Blog Directories/RSS Networks

Next you need to find the list of various Blog Directories, RSS Networks and General Directories which accept Blogs. Not all the general directories accept Blog so submitting to them would be futile.
