Let’s say you’ve have written a lot of great and unique blog post to your blog. Your quite sure that every reader on your blog will surely like this. But it turns out that after a few a days or week you feel that there’s no one even try to comment on your content and no one even push the simple “like button” in it.
I know a lot of great blogger around the net who has the problem like this. I can say that they really have a fun, informative or helpful blog content but still they haven’t get enough appraisal that they really deserves. For most of us blogger, receiving a response from our readers is like a food for us. We feel a great fulfillment about ourselves whenever our readers give us good complement for the content that we made, that’s why it’s really important that we get a real one response at a time for us to be motivated and enjoy blogging at the next level.
In case you’re having a problem like this, then here’s a simple ways on how you can easily promote your blog post for free :
Make use of social networking site - Social media is obviously the easiest and the most effective way to promote anything whether it’s your small business, events, organization or blog. That fact that it’s free and popular makes it the best and easiest way to promote our blog post. Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus is the best three example it while LinkedIn and Pinterest are worth a try too.
Try bookmarking sites – Bookmarking sites is a kind of site where you can easily add or share all your favorite bookmark link around the net. It’s totally a great tool to gain traffic or exposure for your blog post. StumbleUpon, Delicious and Reddit are the best example of bookmarking sites for me. Don’t get surprise if you get a big traffic boost in a day from this sites because its really quite popular around the net.
Blog commenting – Another way of promoting your blog content is through the use of blog commenting. Though it’s not that effective compare to promoting in social networking sites and bookmarking sites. Blog Commenting can give you an option to put your link back to your site which can also bring traffic . What so great about blog commenting is that it give you a way to socialize to other webmaster like you and gain new friend. At the same time you can also gain an avid reader if you give them a sincere and good comment, so they will most likely read your post, comment on it too. Blog commenting is also great way to gain backlink for you to improve your organic search ranking on Google.
Forum Commenting – Participating in any popular forum sites can also help you promote your content. Most forum allows you to put your links in your profile signature so don’t forget to put your link content in it. What I like in joining forum is that you will surely learn a lot on different topic while also gaining traffic and backlink in it. Just make sure to follow rules for you to avoid getting ban by forum masters.
