How to promote new blog?

Discussion in 'WordPress' started by Zedzero, Sep 1, 2006.

  1. #1
    1. Downloaded Wordpress
    2. Installed it
    3. Found a nice template and installed it
    4. Installed needed plugins
    5. Set my blog to ping a lot of servers when a post is made
    6. For 2 days, posted like 20-30 things. (I know this is too much, but not for the subject of my blog, i am sure)
    7. Mailed a lot of friends who may be interested in the subject
    8. Submitted my auto generated and self-updating sitemap to google

    Now what? What can i do to promote my blog further? Any help is appreciated.

    Here's Sultan_Emerrs Links to getting your site Registered with the Search Engines...


    If you hope to get a load of returning visitors, you have to keep updating it with new things that make people want to keep going, and it's gotta look good. The better looking, the more people want to be affiliated with it. Also, make friends, and share links. Join web rings, give the links to your friends who are interested, and an interactive element like a message board, or such, will (if handled correctly) keep people coming back.

    5. Update your site often to have repeat visistors.

    6. Add your url in your email signature.

    7. Do a search on google, then at the bottom of the page is "Disatisfied with results? Help us improve" link. Just fill out the info. and the spiders will go to your site.

    Awesome resources, Keith. But remember, dudes: what will make the difference between a great blog and a good blog is going to be the quality of your posts. You can get a lot done by promoting a blog, but when you have a lot of good content, you will realize that others will do the promo for you by showing your blog on forums, linking to individual posts voluntarily and getting your name out in all sorts of ways.

    It doesn't matter how many directories you stick your blog on - like Mike said, it's all to do with the quality of your blog articles. I found this out pretty quickly on my travel blog, and I can't be bothered wasting time submitting to blog directories simply because people link to me without even asking for a link back.

    If it's a new domain, then its going to take up to 12 months to rank for competitive keywords in Google, due to the sandbox filtering on new domains, indexed.

    So in this time write quality content that people are going to want to link to, blog entries like top 10 seo tips or top 10 hositng companies - people like this kind of content and will link to it.

    To me personally there is nothing more refreshing than a "real" blog, where you can feel what the writer is trying to get across. You can tell, that he/she puts his/her heart into it. No offence, but having spent so much time on DP, you get to see a ton of garbage blogs. Most of us are guilty of doing things for the search engines instead of just writing out our messages. With all of the resources this community has to offer, one would think that there'd be a dozen blogs amongst DP members which are somewhere on the top 100 list of the best and most successful blogs ever.

    too bad you can't get your links live, huh?
    Your blogs are not bad, but far too many ads. Makes them way ugly, but I guess spammers don't care about that.
