Promote Your New Blog Post

How to promote your new blog posts?

There are many ways to promote your new posts.

1. Sharing on social networking sites

Social networking sites are becoming popular day by day. So you can’t forget social networks. You can create a Facebook fan page and a Twitter profile for your blog. Then you can promote your new posts via those pages. And also you can promote your new posts via your personal Facebook account and Twitter account. You can also share your new posts on other social networking sites such as Google plus or LinkedIn.

2. Bookmarking on social bookmarking sites

Most bloggers say that Digg is the most popular social bookmarking site. That may be correct. But for me, Stumbleupon is the best social bookmarking site to promote your new posts. And also you can use Reddit and Delicious.

3. Commenting on CommentLuv enables blogs

CommentLuv is one of the most popular WordPress plugins. It allows the latest blog post of the commenter to be put automatically below his/her comment. Try to be the first commenter, and also put valuable comments. You can get many benefits like building relationships with the other bloggers, in addition to promoting the blog through blog commenting.

4. Forum posting

In a previous post of mine, I shared top 10 forums you should know as a blogger. If you use those forums correctly you can get decent traffic via those forums. But don’t start a new thread about your new post with the new post link. If you do that thing always, you will be banned from those forums (Spam reasons). Anyway, you can use your new post link as your forum signature.

If you have time you can do this this type of work also.

For an example, if you write a post about link building methods you can start a thread about link building. But never put your link in to that thread, you can put your link as your signature.

Forums members who visit to your thread, want to know about link building. So, that’s why they check your thread. Then they see your signature. After that they will click your signature and will land your blog.

5. Guest posting

I know that it is not possible to write guest posts after write every post because writing a guest post takes too much time. But after writing a high quality post, it is good to write a guest post. The reader who lands your post via that post, will check your most recent post. Even if most recent post is high quality there is a high probability of subscribing your blog.

6. Adding social sharing buttons

If you posts are quality, your reader may like to share it with their friends. So your social sharing buttons help to readers to do that. If your blogging platform is WordPress you can use a WordPress plugins like ShareThis or Digg Digg for adding social sharing buttons.

How do you promote your new posts? You can share it as a comment.

    Great tips and thank you for sharing. From personal experience I want to add that I find Reddit very helpful. Stumbleupon blocks your account if you continiously stumble your own posts. I also tried to install CommentLuv on my blog but found it didn[t want to work with Jetpack. It installed but people couldn[t comment. When I deactivated Jetpack it worked. I would love to use CoomentLuv!

    Guest posting is something i love doing, and you are right there. It brings a lot of traffic through referrals apart from providing backlinks to the blog.

    Nice tips. Sharing is the key to promoting. And for me also Stumbleupon works better than Digg. And I have seen that placing a sharing button below the posts; like you have at your blog; works very nice. It makes more and more people share and so we get more traffic in return.
