Blogger Forums – A Great Place To Advertise Your Blog
No matter what type of blog that you have, one of the best places that you can advertise your blog is to join a blogger forum. After all, everyone who posts there has a blog and that’s the main subject. It’s a great place to meet other bloggers and to advertise your blog. There are quite a few blogger forums that you can signup for on the Internet.
First one I will talk about is known as Bloggeries. In Bloggeries you can show off your blog, get your blog reviewed or review other blogs, and find lots of tools that you can use for your own blog. When you appear within their most appropriate category for your blog, new readers will find you easily.
Also, bloggeries gives you a dedicated page with details of your blog. Another benefit you derive from them is, they feature new and interesting submissions on the official Bloggeries blog. And this could give much more exposure. All their directory listings are $75 per year base price, excluding any optional add-ons.
Another good place to go is to Blog Forum. Blog Forum, like Bloggeries, has spots for you to market and show off your blog. Blogger forums are a great place to advertise because everyone in them are of the same mind and want to make certain that their blogs get noticed and read.
If you use your blog to advertise something that you are selling, or you want to get a lot of traffic to your blog in order to make money, you want to go someplace where it can get exposure.
When you advertise on a blog forum, you know that you are placing your advertisement in a place where blogging is something that people enjoy. Just remember when you are posting to a forum to read the rules and abide by them. That way you’ll get your blog noticed and you will know that you are doing the right thing.
Blogging Directories – Great Advertising Venues
If you want to have more people visit your blog, there are plenty of blog directories on the Internet that you can submit your blog to so that people will come and visit it. Most blog directories are listed by the topics that the blogs that are submitted cover. BlogCatalog is a free blog directory that offers categories such as career and jobs, writing, Iraq, and many others. It has features such as featured blogs and other things to offer those who submit their blogs there.
Another great place to add your blog is http://blog-drectory.org. Not only do they have an an extensive list of categories with sub categories, you can get your blog reviewed. For the most popular blogs, it shows the amount of hits that blogs have and if they have any reviews. As well as listing by category, the blogs are also listed by location.
There are other blog directories on the Internet – these are only a couple of them. But blog directories are a great place to advertise your blog and to make new friends. You never know what you will find when you browsing through the directory, and you may just find out information that you never knew. Some of the blog directories offer chat features as well, so that you can meet other people easily. And could also open other opportunities for you.
Blogging Traffic – Give And Take
Blogging traffic is a give and take relationship. Sometimes one of the best ways to get traffic to your blog is by visiting someone else ’s blog. Go to their blog and read one of their entries, or read a few of them. Chances are that you are going to find something that you have in common.
When you find something that you find truly interesting on a blog, leave a comment so that they know that you were there. One of the best known blogs available is LiveJournal. A great feature of LiveJournal is that you can search for interests on their site and it will come up with results of those who have that interest.
Are you interested in horseback riding You can see what other bloggers are interested in horseback riding as well. When you are commenting on someone’s post, you want to make sure that you don’t leave generic comment. If you like the post, say something about what you read in the post.
After you have commented on the person’s post, then you can say something like, ‘I really like horseback riding too. I had a similar experience to yours.’ and
then use it to link back to your journal. But be sure that you sound sincere when you are commenting. Also, don’t make them feel like you’re just fishing for traffic.If someone thinks that you are using their blog to get more traffic to yours, they won’t visit your site and your efforts will be wasted.
These strategies work a lot of the time. Just make sure to take action and you could see results coming in. Do you have any other strategies you use, then please don’t hesistate to share them in the comments section.
