Recently I’ve been busy doing social media marketing for an online fashion community. Thus, for two months I haven’t updated anything here. However, with two months’ new online marketing experiences, I have more to write about.
Today I would like to share some tips on blog promotion with you.
I always believe that “Content is the King“, but I also want to say that If you want more traffic, you need to expose more about your blog. You have to make much noise to attract traffic.
First, make sure where do your traffic come from. You can find something about your audience from the statistic part on your dashboard. You can see the area where most visitors come from, their traffic source etc.
Second, try to write some content to match the “Hot keyword” from the region where your audience from. For example, if you are writing fashion blog, when your audience are more from uk, you can focus on some UK fashion icons’ styles. If you are writing about entertainment, when you audience are more from India, you can sure focus on Bollywood, or india celebrities in Hollywood etc. I know this sounds subservient ? but it does help you earm more traffic from different areas of the world.
Third, Communication with other blogers! I have to say that this is the fastest way to earn your traffic. After your new blog article is published, go out to the world blogosphere to see what other bloggers write about. Leave messages to blogs which have the same topic as you. Fashion to fashion, food to food, social media to social media…which gonna make more sense. The messages you leave should be high-quality, and then be sure to make your link to your blog in the end of your message, which can lead bloggers back to your own blog.
Fourth, try to use different social media sites to expose your blog address. Submit your link to release share sites like Digg, share your new articles with fans on twitter and friends on facebook. Try to find some related online communities, make an account, and only share part of ideas and pictures from your blogs. Like Tumblr, you can always insert your blog link.
Last, try to use an attractive title for your blog articles. Want your blog to be searched through Search engine? Try to think if you are the guy who is searching for information, what keywords you will type in the seaching bar? Try to use more words like “How to…” “What to…” “Top 10 must…” “You should…”, which gonna definitely help your blog rank higher on the result page.
