20+ Ways To Promote The Heck Of Your Blog Post

Share the Heck out of your Blog PostThe past few weeks I’ve been putting some blog promotion techniques into action.

In this post I am going to give you the exact steps that I am now taking to promote each of my blog posts far and wide.

Promoting your blog post is something you will still need to do constantly, even if you already have a consequent traffic, but even more so if you feel that your blog has not yet reached the amount of traffic that you would like, which is my case.

The steps that I am going to show you here are easy enough; you’re just going to have to  make the extra time to do this. But I guess that if I can do this with 3 blogs, which makes everything I’m going to show you here multiplied by 3, I’m sure you can do it with one blog, no matter how busy you are.

Promote your Blog Post on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn and Pinterest

Well this is a given.  The very first steps I take to promote my blog post as soon as I hit the publish button is to promote it on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn and Pinterest.

Since I have 3 Twitter accounts, of course I promote my post in its proper Twitter account.

On Facebook I promote my post on my now only Fan page, until I take the time to create more focused and professional fan pages (which is something I will be doing very soon). Then, of course I promote it on my regular public profile, and on the few groups that I belong too.

It is very important that you promote your post everywhere you can on Facebook. Right now, Facebook is my largest source of traffic. I also make sure I use a keyword hashtag on my Facebook post sharing.

Then, of course I promote my post on Google+ in a couple of places. I am not overly involved in Google+, but I still make sure I share my post there and use the proper keyword hashtags as Google+ allows it now as well.

I also always promote my post on Pinterest to at least a couple of relevant boards. One thing that I’ve learned is to make sure to put the link of the post under the description as well, so my blog post won’t get lost when my image is repined. If you don’t include the link of your post, your image will be shared, but the link of the post will be gone. So make sure you include that post link in the description area.

On LinkedIn I share my post to my profile as well as with the niche appropriate groups.  If you read and share other posts on your groups, they will also read your post and share it as well. If you want to learn more about LinkedIn I recently wrote a post about it here.

Promote your post on Blokube and BizSugar

The very next step I take after the main social media is go over to Blokube and BizSugar and post my last post there as well. For some reasons I’m getting more traffic from BizSugar than Blokube, even though I’ve started with Blokube first.

Either way, it’s better if you don’t just post your post there and leave. Always make an effort to interact with others and comment about THEIR blog posts.  The more you interact, the more you’ll be successful on these two platforms.

Feedage.com

Feedage.com is a feed platform site that I’ve known about for years, and stopped using it. However, recently I’ve started to post the feeds of my new blog post on their every week.  All three of them.

From Feedage you will be able to share your content to all the far corners of the web such as on MyYahoo, Google, NewsGator, MyMSN, Netwibes, Feedage Alert and more…

This gives you the chance to have your blog post distributed in zillion places.

Social Buzz Club

I do get my blogs shared on Twitter and get visitors from Social Buzz Club on a regular basis, so I make sure to share my blog post there as well.  I have a full post that explains what Social Buzz Club is all about.

Triberr, Just Retweet and Viral Content Buzz

These are 3 platforms that I’ve recently started using, and I have to say that I am now having fun with them. When you register your blog on Triberr each of your blog posts will automatically show in your Triberr stream and people will be able to share it on twitter.

The best way to use Triberr is to log in every day and share other people’s posts and they will share yours.

Just Retweet works on credits. The more you share other people’s content the more credit you’ll have to share your own content. Your content will be shared on Twitter, Facebook and Google+.  As soon as I started using Just Retweet, my content was shared. Really cool.

Viral Content Buzz is a cool content sharing tool, because first the content has to be approved and when it’s approve it will appear on the Dashboard as “anonymous” content.  This is good, because first of all you know that to be approved the content needs to be of quality, and second people won’t share it just based on “who you are” since they will not know that. So no prejudice there.

Viral Content Buzz is the kind of place where your title and short description will do the job. A good reason to create catchy headlines.

Reddit, StumbleUpon, Delicious, Digg, and Diigo

I have to admit that I had pretty much stopped using these content sharing platforms, but guess what? I started again.  Those are still very good content sharing sites where you can multiply the chances of your post to be seen and attract visitors to your blog.

Post your blog post on each of these platform each time you publish a new post, and you’ll be glad you did.

Tumblr

Tumblr is a blogging platform that allows you to share your post, images or videos to their tumblelog.  The best way to use Tumblr is to write a snippet of your blog post such as a mini post of your post, but using a variation of your content.  Do not just copy in paste.  Write a couple of paragraphs that will summarize your post with a link to it.

Newsvine

Newvine is a social news platform.  You can write articles or “seed a link” which is share a link with a little introduction to what you are sharing.  Newsvine syndicates content from sources such as The Associated Press and some of its users are professional journalists.

I am actually new to Newsvine, but so far I really like its concept.

EzineArticles.com

I had recently revisited article directories such as Hubpages, for example, but as I wrote a post not too long ago when I found out that it was a waste of my time.

All in all I realized that EzineArticles was still the one article directory worth my time.  Recently, I decided to clean it up.  I had 8 accounts on EzineArticles with different niches and pen names that were no longer of any use to me. So I deleted them all except for 3.  My main account and two others that link to my other two niches.

I asked them if I could blend all three accounts together under my real name, but haven’t got an answer yet. If not, I will save the articles, and simply delete the accounts as well.

On my main account alone I had 161 articles and deleted a bunch of them that were not longer relevant.  I’m now down to 146 articles.  This past week I spent quite a bit of time updating my articles one by one as well as the links to my blogs and resubmitted the articles which were accepted within a couple of hours. I still have a long way to go to update all 146 of them, but I am doing 5 a day, so I’m coming along slowly but surely.

At the rate that I’m writing I realized that writing an extra little 400-ish article to promote my post a step further couldn’t hurt.

SlideShare

I have written a blog post about SlideShare a few months back. SlideShare is really drawing traffic, and ranks well. I’ve been impressed with SlideShare from the very first time I’ve used it few years ago.  Even though I know that’s time consuming you can promote your post by creating a SlideShare show about it.

I admit that I haven’t nearly used SlideShare to the extent that I would like to, but it’s really a great site to be on, and I had to add it here.

Commenting on Other Blogs

Of course, a bit part of promoting your blog also involves commenting on other blogs. I am not going to extend much on that here, but comment on at least 10 blogs each time you post a new post on your blog. If at all possible make sure you pick blogs that have commentluv plugins since your post title will show up with your comment.

 

There you have it. These are the 20+ steps I’m taking to promote the heck out of my blog post each time I hit the publish button. Does this takes extra time? Yes, it sure does, but I think that it well worth it.

In a few weeks/months once I can really see a tangible difference after applying this blog post promotion campaign I will write another post with the results.

    Good article on places where to promote your post. I am using most of them. I haven’t used feedage so that’s something new for me. I will check it out. I am also on Ezineartilces but have not used it as often as I should. Perhaps I should I send them another article. Thanks for listing these places.

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Hi Shalu,

      I’m glad you found this post and gald you’re using all these. I know that a lot of people do not know about feedage, but it’s very good to spread you wings even more. Hope you’ll try it.

      I am now going to write regularly on EZ again, now that I’ve cleaned my account and can write so much faster than I used to when I used to post there a while back. One thing I do is write FAST, so I’ve got to take advantage of this 🙂

      Thanks for coming, and have a great week!

  • Barry Wells says:

    Hi Sylviane,

    There must be something in the air…. I just started a new post on what I do after publishing a post 🙂

    I do some of what you mention here and some different ones as well. I’ll have to go through your post again and try the services that I’m not currently using….. and there’s a few 😉

    I’ll start with Feedage, thanks…

    I have to take my hat off to you, working 3…. Let me correct that THREE blogs and writing great content for them all, really does take some hard work. I’m currently working on a few sites and now know the work involved. Great job Sylviane 😎

    Thanks for all the extra tips, I’ll link to this post in my one 🙂

    Have a great week,
    Barry

    P.S. Did I make number one comment?

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Hi Barry,

      Wow, nice to see you first here. Yes, it does take some work to do all 3 times. post, promotion of post and blog commenting linking each of my post as well.

      So now you see it since you have more conent to produce!

      I will surely go check yours my dear. I can never get enough tips to promote my blog posts.

      Thanks for coming and sharing 🙂 this post!

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Oh, by the way, you’re number two, because since I have lots of comment spammers I leave my blogs on comment moderation for now. But you are up there!

  • Corina Ramos says:

    Thanks for sharing these places with us Sylvianne. I have heard of some of these like Triberr and Just Retweet and am a member but there are some that are new to me. I’ll definitely be checking them out.

    I also have an account with BizSugar but I didn’t feel my niche matched up to what the readers were looking for. It’s worth giving another try if it means more traffic, right?

    You got my attention with Ezine. I have seen some articles in my niche and I just might give it a try.

    Thanks again for sharing these sites with us. I wish you all the success! Have a great new week ahead!

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Hi Corina,

      I think that you can totally link your posts on BizSugar. I link all my blogs there and have no problem. Same for Blokube.

      EZ still has 2 potentials very much time worthy, and they are giving you backlinks and promoting your blog further. I updated a bunch of links that were not applying anymore with those of my blogs.

      Like I said in the post in a few weeks, maybe a couple of months I’ll write a post on the results of all of this. I have never promoted my blog post that much before.

      Have a great day!

  • Pramod says:

    Hi Sylviane !
    Excluding ezine articles , i’ve used all the tools that you’ve mentioned ..they all are excellent and work great. I simply love Just-retweet ,Triberr,StumbleUpon,Reddit and Digg as they bring decent amount of traffic to my blog . Thanks for sharing these tools and networks with us .

    -Pramod

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Hi Pramod,

      That’s great. The more the better when it come to sharing our blog posts!

      Thanks for coming by and welcome to my blog.

  • Donna MerrillTwitter: donna_tribe says:

    Hi Sylviane,

    Wow…I didn’t know about a few of these like Feedpage.com, which I took a glimpse at and it really looks good. Thanks for that.

    I appreciate your honesty when you say that you were away from some of these platforms and now started using them again. I have done the same myself. I used to use LinkedIn like crazy, then stepped away from it. Recently, I pushed myself to get back into action on that platform and it is going like wild. Some old clients of mine have called me because they have seen my activity on LinkedIn.

    I am very interested in starting to use SlideShare and that is next on my to-do list. I think it is important to get ourselves out there as much as we can.

    Thanks for these tips because I’ve been away from some of these for a while now. It has given me another push to get back in the game.

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Hi Donna,

      I know sometimes we need that blog post that will give us the push we need to go the extra mile. There’s so much to do, I tell you 🙂

      I had abandoned EzineArticles for over 2 years but decided to get active again. I’ve revamped many of my old posts with the proper links and just wrote a new post today! Really cleaned the house by deleting 5 whole accounts 🙂

      I myself need to use SlideShare more. I love this stuff and it ranks great. You’ve got to use it. It’s good stuff.

      Thanks for coming and sharing, Donna 😉

    I can’t help but notice the glaring similarities to Rebekeh Radice’s post called 25 Ways to Promote Your Latest Blog Post http://rebekahradice.com/ways-to-promote-your-latest-blog-post/

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Hi Peg,

      Well any similarity wasn’t intended anyway. And it looks like the owner of the blog doesn’t reply to comments either. That’s one similarity you won’t see with my blog.

      Thanks for coming.

  • Jeevanjacobjohn says:

    Well, I spent most of my blogging time commenting on blog posts 😀

    Since I don’t have a blog now, I don’t have to worry about promoting my own stuff – Just sharing content that I find useful 🙂

    I have to admit, I am not very active on a lot of these sites (heck, I don’t we have accounts in some of these). I find it difficult to just manage the 5 main sites that I am focusing on – Twitter, Google Plus, Facebook, LinkedIn and Pinterest (I had an account, but I was never active. Decided to become more active last week :D).

    As for Stumble Upon, I do stumble blog posts every now and then (Only when I can find the sharing button. If the blog doesn’t have it, I won’t bother. It already takes too much time for me to comment and share, especially since I don’t have a proper typing technique. I am working on it though :D).

    Like I mentioned earlier, some of these are new to me. I will definitely check them out.

    I created an account on Viral Content Buzz last week. I haven’t fully explored it. Anonymous sharing huh? That’s awesome. Do they pull up the article from the feed? (I usually want to read all the articles before I share. So, the anonymous feature may not work well for me).

    Anyways, thank you for the comprehensive post, Sylviane 🙂 I do appreciate it!

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Hi Jeevan,

      You are sure a good blog commenter and I don’t blame you for not stumbling a post that don’t have the button. That’s totally understandable.

      the way Viral Content Buzz works is that you post your link there and they will approve it if it’s good content, then it well be viewable on the dashboard, but not with your name nor avatar. For that you would have to follow the link to find the post, so it’s not that you can’t find out, but it’s not showing on their site.

      Thanks for your feedbacks and have a great one!

      • Jeevanjacobjohn says:

        Thank you, Sylviane 🙂

        Yeah. Sometimes, I do feel guilty though. My mind tells me that I am lazy for not going to StumbleUpon and stumbling the article manually. But, I have to let go of it. I already spend 10-15 mins on each blog post for reading, commenting and sharing. I can’t afford to spend more.

  • AdrienneTwitter: adriennesmith40 says:

    Hey Sylviane,

    I knew you were revisiting ways to get your blogs more attention and looks like you’ve definitely got a great plan going here.

    Well I’m familiar with every single one of these sites you shared but I don’t use them all myself. There are several that I have personally found to be a waste of time and I also know that Google has downgraded a few of these as no longer important.

    I don’t like to join sites now that I know I don’t have time to spend on them like you mentioned over at BizSugar. It’s great to share your post but you really need to spend time viewing other people’s which I don’t have the time to do at the moment. I’ve been asked numerous times to rate posts on there but I use to do that on the blogging networks and had absolutely no luck with those at all. I found them to be a big waste of my time.

    I hope that all of these methods work well for you Sylviane and I’m anxious to hear how they go for you. At least this way I’ll know what works and what doesn’t right!

    Thanks for sharing this list and good luck to you.

      Hi Adrienne,

      I know what you mean, for now I’m just trying and seeing what works and what doesn’t. I know that do get visits from the ones that I’ve been using a little longer, but you know the internet is all about trying things. So right now I’m trying.

      Also it’s not only about traffic but adding backlinks as well.

      Have a great day Adrienne 🙂

    Hi sylviane,

    I’d need a robot to hit all those sites in one day…

    Do you have any short cuts you use that groups some of them together so
    it can be done in a few clicks instead of signing in
    everywhere?

    Like that follow this blog that is rather handy for reading and commenting.

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Hi Cararta,

      No, unfortunately, I’m not aware of any robot to do those things, because most of them are about building relationships and that’s not something you can do with a robot.

      You can do the steps over a period of 3 to 4 days, so it’s not that bad.

      Thanks for coming and have a great day!

  • Sherman SmithTwitter: shermanksmith75 says:

    Hey Sylviane,

    All I have to say is WOW! You have giving us a lot of resources to use in order to promote our blog posts. I use to use half of them before consistently but stopped. I use more of tribepro and facebook, but I’m definitely open to see how I can get more traffic.

    What I have to do is cut down on writing so many blog posts, which I’m going to do anyways since my day schedule has change, and focus on promoting my content more and engaging. The more you promote and engage the more traffic and sales you will get. Simple as that!

    Thanks for sharing!

      Hi Sherman,

      Indeed, if you write more than 2 blog posts per week it might be just too much. Better write less, and promote your post more. I know that some people out there are promoting the fact that you should post once a day, but that totally crazy to me.

      thank for your feedback and have a great day!

  • OktoTwitter: oktohakim says:

    Hi Sylviane,

    Wow that’s so many things to do after we publish a post. Back then I was using almost all of your suggestion to promote mine. But I was realized that we need effectiveness in this subject.

    We need to evaluate to know exactly on what platform our promotion perform best. If we find the answers then we should stick to it until we ready to jump on another new ways.

    Thanks for making this post

      Hi Okto,

      Yes, I agree, once you find what works for you, just stick to it until otherwise. In my case, I still don’t know, so this is a testing project right now.

      I’ll wait a few weeks and will post the results.

      Thanks for coming 🙂

  • William ButlerTwitter: wiarbu says:

    Wow Sylviane!

    That’s quite a comprehensive list, many of which I have never heard of before.
    I appreciate your thoughtfulness in putting this post together.

    As you suggest, it all takes time. I was just apprised of TribePro.com, which I see you don’t have listed, and I do not know how it stacks up to Triberr, which I’ve also just learned about.

    I’ve been blogging less than a year, and as I’m still finding out, I still have plenty to learn. I really appreciate learning from people such as yourself and others who know from experience what works.

    Thank you kindly.

      Hi William,

      Well, I’m glad if some of these were new to you. I’ve heard of TribePro before, but never even check them out. There are so much stuff out there.

      Someone was asking me if they could automate that, but I’m afraid that’s not possible, since lot of this is about building relationships too.

      Glad you enjoyed this post and thank you for coming.

  • Silviu says:

    Hi Sylviane,

    Thanks for the list. I noted down in a separate file. What really interests me to know is:

    Do you post your article on each of this sites, the same information each time? I suppose you make some changes. Probably the link stays the same but the rest must be changed a little bit. What do you change? The title, the description, the keywords?

    Have a wonderful day

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Hi Silviu,

      If you are talking about Tumblr, Newsvine and EzineArticles, the piece of content linking to your post there must be original, not copied. So basically you’d be talking about the same topic, but in a different way.

      Yesterday I wrote an article on EZ just as such, for this post, and it was approved in 10 minutes.

      If you have any more questions I’ll be glad to try answering them.

    Sylvaine, great places to share our posts! Thank you for sharing your experiences, I haven’t used Reddit, Digii or Delicious in years, Do they still work? I have thought of signing up for Reddit again.
    This post is really making me think. I love BizSugar, received a bit of traffic from it. I would add Listly too! I got a lot of traffic from building lists there too. I also just signed up for the Buffer Awesome to spend less time sharing and more time writing and engaging with others. It all takes so much TIME.

  • Ti Roberts says:

    Hi Sylviane,

    Great content promotion strategy you’ve got going on here. I agree that it does take quite a bit of time to effectively promote each and every blog post, that’s why I’ll only go through the my entire content promotion strategy for those posts that I really want to get the most traffic possible.

    Blog commenting and social media engagement/interaction are, of course, part of my everyday blog promo regimen. However, when I really want to send a lot of traffic to a particular post, I have a list of blogs I’ll send emails to asking for help.

    It’s looks like you’re off to a great start with this and I wish you much success with it. I’ll be sure to do what I can to help you out too of course, we all gotta help one another, right? 🙂

      I know that you are doing great yourself with the promotion of your blog posts.

      I know I’ve read a post of yours where you mentioned all the good results you’ve gotten from BizSugar and even seen you are a moderator on there now 🙂

      Thank you so much for coming and helping me out 🙂 Very much appreciated.

  • Carol LynnTwitter: carollynnrivera says:

    Great collection of promotional places, Sylviane! I bet a lot of people are familiar with the usual suspects like Facebook and Twitter (even though it helps to have a reminder – sometimes there are so many you could miss a few, plus there are plenty of options on each) but I bet they aren’t as familiar with the ones that aren’t mentioned as much like Social Buzz and Just Retweet. Actually, there were a few in here that are new to me! I have never heard of Feedage and I am not familiar with Newsvine. I’m definitely going to check those out. You can never have too many places to promote a blog post, especially now that Google has made so many changes and made it so hard to get found in search.

    There’s a good platform for pretty good content that I use called Inbound.org. The only bad thing is you aren’t supposed to actually post your own stuff there. Weird, right? But if you collaborate with someone you can always post each other’s stuff.

    Good stuff here, and everyone should add ALL of these to their list!

      Hi Carol,

      Nice to see you here. Feedgage is actually an older site, but it used to do lots of good for me in the past, so I thought I’d revisit it and see.

      Newsvine is good stuff, and this is really worth a try. I hope you’ll try it and get good results from it. I’ll let you guys know the outcome for me.

      Thanks for coming.

  • Gilbert Samuel says:

    Hi Sylviane

    This is really a great list and I don’t think I’m using up to 50% of them. It’s a whole lot a strategy, I was thinking it’s too much but I was challenged when you said you’re using this strategy of three blogs. Who knows what the effect will be if it’s focused on just a blog.

    Well, I’m using those social networks mentioned above but I’m not the linkedin and pinterest type of guy. I can’t remember the last time I visited linkedin but thanks for jetpack, it promotes my blog post on my linkedin profile anytime I hit the publish button. As for pinterest, all I do is use an attractive image on my blog post while my readers do the rest for me and I’m getting some good amount of traffic from it.

    The only category I’m totally not using is social bookmarking sites; Stumbleupon, reddit…etc but since I’ve gotten a confirmation from you, I’ll definitely check it out.

    Ahh blog commenting, I’m an addict when it comes to that my goal is to drop at least, 10 comments a day on different blog.
    I’ve learnt something new here and I must say you deserve the accolade. Have a great week ahead.

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Hi Gilbert, and Welcome to my blog

      I love my good old visitors, but I love to receive new ones too. I’m pretty good at building relationships online and I’ve met some wonderful people while blog hopping who became real friends. You’ve got to love that!

      I’m glad if you learned a few tricks here and hope you’ll use them.

      I’ll come see you on your blog 🙂

    “wow, awesome blog post.Many thanks. Cool.”

  • Adam Dukes says:

    Some great ideas on promoting blog posts. I have been blogging for 3+ years, but am learning how important promotion is. Derek Halpern of Social Triggers states to spend 20% of your time writing and 80% of your time promoting. I started doing this in July nd traffic soared.

    I love Just Retweet and have seen my organic traffic increase quite a bit after I started using that site (social shares ?). I have signed up for Triberr, but just have not got the hang of it yet, but know a lot of people talk about it.

    I am working on a pdf “check list” so every time I hit “publish” I have a list to go through. Yes, it does take extra time, but is well worth it.

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Hi Adam,

      Yes, I totally agree with the Derek. 20% writing and the rest promoting.

      The whole writing part takes me maybe 3 or 4 hours and that includes everything about writing, editing, looking for images or anything else I need to add to my post.

      As for the promotion of the blog I do it over several days. It seems that it never ends.

      I also follow a list, so I can check out what’s done.

      Welcome here and thank you for your visit.

  • Keri Kight says:

    Wow Sylviane, this is an amazing list you have here. I have to say that I’m not using at least half of them, but I just went through and made accounts for those. When I first bought my domain name and started blogging, I was very modest. I thought that if I shared my blog posts too much, it would look like I was bragging and it would turn people away. Alas, I was very wrong. Promoting your blog posts is sharing your free content to the world, and being able to share your knowledge, views and expertise. Thanks for your list and I’ve saved it to Pinterest.

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Hi Keri,

      No, not at all, sharing your blog has nothing to do with bragging and I’m glad you know that now!

      Sometimes when we are new to those things we may have some strange ideas about things, but as you said, all you’re doing is sharing your free content. You not forcing anyone, just sharing 🙂

      Welcome here as I think it’s your first time on my blog, and thanks for your comment.

  • Timo Kiander says:

    Hi Sylviane!

    Have you measured, which one of these promotions methods have brought you biggest results?

    I’m getting started with blog commenting again and another thing that I started doing just recently is to write a guest post related to the latest post on my blog. Sure, it takes more work, but yet it’s one way to promote my content.

    Also, I try to connect with other bloggers by mentioning them on Twitter (if my posts linked to their posts) or just send them an e-mail and telling them to look at my post.

    Cheers,Timo

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Hi Timo,

      Well, as I mentioned in this post, I haven’t yet measured the results, and that will be the subject of another post in a few weeks. Many of these blog post promotion tips, I’ve just started and some I had stopped for a long time and started again.

      I do the same thing you do with blog guest but with article directories, as I write an article on EzineArticles that links to my last post and that is related to as well.

      Welcome here and thank you for your comment.

  • Laura Raisanen says:

    Hi Sylviane, Fantastic list, I think you definitely have captured the most effective ways of promoting a blog post. I’m using quite a few of them but I also had never heard of Feedage. I’ve now registered onto it, so thanks 🙂 SlideShare was something I meant to look into a while ago but never got round to. It’s now back on my to do list. Thank you for sharing! :)Laura

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Hi Laura,

      Welcome here and glad that you’ve learned about one you didn’t know and reminded you of SlideShare which is such a good vehicle for traffic.

      Thanks for coming, and for your feedback.

  • Maketta says:

    Hello Sylviane,

    This is the first time I have visited your blog. That was an excellent blog post! That is a very impressive list to promote your blog post. I hadn’t heard of some of those social sites that you mentioned. I will be trying them out. I always say don’t put your eggs in one basket but at the same time you have to do what works for you. If you are having more success at a particular social site than another then stick with what works or you will just be all over the place and getting no results. Thanks for sharing this awesome list with us!

  • Sylviane Nuccio says:

    Hi Maketta,

    I agree, stick with what works for you and spend less time with what doesn’t work as well.

    I am still trying a lot of these and I will see the results soon. I will blog about it in an other post.

    Welcome here to my blog, and thanks for coming.

  • Bill Clow says:

    Sylviane, WOW! So many great tips. I do some of the basics (FB, Twitter, LI) but have not even heard of many of the other options you shared. I just wonder how you have time to even write blogs with all of the other work you are doing! Do you have a recommendation on the one or two beyond the three above that you would start with? I am interested in building my readership, but I have limited time so must focus my promotional activities! Thanks so much for sharing!Bill

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Hi Bill,

      If your time is limited I would concentrate on Triberr, Viral Content Buzz and Just Retweet. Those 3 are probably the most consequent ones.

      If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask 🙂

  • Lynne says:

    Great tips, but I do realize this will need time and patience on my part. I salute your dedication. Thanks!

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Hi Lynne,

      Yes, blog promotion takes time. Actually way more than the writing part. That’s the way it is.

      Thanks for coming 🙂

  • Kharim Tomlinson says:

    Hey Sylviane Nuccio,
    This is a very awesome article.

    These 20+ ways that you shared in your article on how to promote a blog post is terrific.I have used a few of these promotion methods and I must say that it has given my blog a great boost.I am now going to test the others that you have mentioned here so that I can drive my blog even further.

    Thanks for sharing the wonderful post!

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Hi Kharim,

      I’m glad you enjoyed the post and learn even more ways to promote your blog posts.

      thank you for coming and nice meeting you 🙂

  • Kumar GaurawTwitter: kgauraw says:

    Hi Sylviane,

    Again, a great article with a lot of tips on places to promote our posts. I hadn’t used feedage so far and that means I learnt something new today! I have just signed up for it and now I will explore it.

    Thank you for sharing these resources.
    Regards,

      Hi Kumar,

      A lot of people do not know about feedage, because it’s rather old, and I don’t know if it’s as good and efficient as it used to be, but it was a great tool to help index a new page/article in the past, and it work great.

      Thanks for your feedback.

  • Barbara CharlesTwitter: BarbaraCharles says:

    Hi Sylviane,

    First this is a great post. I immediately started going through the list to see how I can promote my posts more. Most I had heard of but some I had not. I will investigate Feedage, Just ReTweet, Viral Content Buzz, Newsvine. I’ve looked at Ezine articles and signed up but have not used it yet. And I’ve used Slideshare many times.

    I think I’ll go on another mission to get more traffic trying these new and different sources. Thanks for the write up.

      Hi Barbara,

      I’m glad they are some new tools here for you to try. I’m trying them myself and it seems to make a difference already.

      Even my Alexa ranking which plunged like a rock off a cliff is now back up, and traffic did increase.

      I write 3 articles a week for EZ now (related to my posts) and they are approved in under 20 minutes. I had almost forgotten how much I love the article directory. I started publishing articles on that site back in 2006 🙂

      Thanks for your feedback

  • Glenn ShepherdTwitter: glennshep says:

    Hi Sylvaine,

    This is an awesome post that’s absolutely jam-packed with useful info. In fact, there’s so much in it that I’m going to have to save it and come back to it later!

    Some of the things you mention here I’m already doing but there’s a lot of resources that I hadn’t considered or hadn’t even heard about before. Also, even with the things I’m currently using there are approaches that I hadn’t considered. For example, I hadn’t considered using hashtags outside of Twitter. I wasn’t actually aware that they are becoming so widely used elsewhere too, so this is something that I’m going to have to get up-to-speed on.

    Thanks Sylvaine, I look forward to getting stuck in and going over these methods in more detail.

    Kind regards,
    Glenn

      I’ve definitely seen you around before, but I’m not sure if I have been to your blog yet, but I certainly will and see what you’re all about 🙂

      I’m glad that you’ve learned about some sites that you didn’t know about. This is the kind of post that people love, indeed, just by seeing the amount of comments which I have a hard time to keep up with.

      Thanks for coming 🙂

  • Melinda says:

    Wow, lots of good info. I didn\’t know about more than half of these sites. Time to get busy. I have a question about Pinterest though. I use it all the time. The images should still be clickable and linked to your post after someone else repins it. Did I misunderstand what you meant about losing your link after it\’s repinned? Thanks for the detailed info on all of these sites. I have some serious catching up to do.

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      HI Melinda,

      Sorry for this late reply, but I’m just trying to keep up with all these comments.

      What I meant about the link on Pinterest is that If someone shares the image of your post by repinning it the link of that first image will be lost.

      If you don’t add the link of your post in the comment area you’re picture will be repinned, but your link will not follow (so to speak). So make sure you add the link of your post under the image as you pin it. That’s it 🙂

      Hope this help 🙂

      Thank you for coming .

      • Melinda says:

        That has not been my experience with Pinterest at all. If I repin someone else’s pin, the image from the original site still retains it’s url. That’s the idea behind pinterest. It’s simply bookmarking a website you want to return to but using images instead of the original bookmarking we all used to do where only a link was saved on your own computer. If you put your link in the comments, folks can delete them when they repin it. I change descriptions all the time when I repin because they don’t always apply to me.

        Am I still missing what you were saying?

        • Sylviane Nuccio says:

          OK, maybe I’m wrong, but’s what I was told a while back, so I’ve always added my link in the description. I’ve read That when people repin the image the original link will be lost. I will check into it. Well I’m glad if it’s not the case.

          Sorry if I’m wrong.

  • Ruth Clark says:

    Hi Sylviane,I found your blog through Adrienne Smith. These are some great resources. I use the main four you talk about excluding Facebook. I can see FB in my future, but for now it\’s completely personal for family and friends. They wouldn\’t appreciate anything commercial. I do use Twitter, LinkedIn, Digg, and Pinterest. I am still a newbie trying to find my way. I recently got a blog facelift and cleaned up my articles. I\’m still working on that. I didn\’t really have a niche, but now I\’m writing stories and poems for a couple of anthologies. Those I will put on Facebook. Thanks for this in-depth look at ways to market our products.

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Hi Ruth and nice meeting you here.

      I do not see a link to your blog here, but I will check you out through Twitter, I guess.

      I’m glad that you enjoyed this post and thanks for coming.

      Sorry for the late reply, but I’m still playing catch up with comments on my blogs 🙂

      Hope to see you around soon!

  • Rita lopes says:

    Hi Sylviane,
    thank you for sharing your knowledge with us and i agree with your post that one can have his or her blogs sites by posting it on Facebook , twitter , blokube and BizSugar and many other ways. you are going a great job by posting such a knowledgeable blog

  • Susan Neal says:

    Hi Sylviane,As others have commented this is an incredible list of resources – I\’m hardly doing any of this. Some great tips, too, like making sure you include your link in the description on Pinterest – I didn\’t realise that was necessary. I\’m sure I\’m never going to find time to do all of these, but you\’ve certainly given me some food for thought.Many, many thanks for a very useful post 🙂

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Hi Sue,

      So sorry for such late reply, but this post is going crazy and approaching 80 comments now 🙂 That doesn’t happen to me that often, but in a way it’s not so much of a bad thing, because I’m so behind with my replies 🙂

      I know what you mean by not having the time to do it all, I don’t do it all, all the time either, but I do most of it, and I spread it throughout a few days.

      Thank you for coming.

  • Maxwell IveyTwitter: mistermidway says:

    Hello; Thanks for this excellent post. I found you from the post on adrienne’s site. I had been doing a lot of these, but I hadn’t heard of blokue, bizsugar, or feedage. At least I didn’t remember feedage.

    It turns out i had an account there I never finished setting up probably because of their constant captchas. That is the most common reason for me not using a site.

    I tried to sign up for slide share, but will have to try again later. And i signed up for triberr, but i would appreciate a tutorial on how to use it. the terms seam to be different than most sites I’m used to.

    I will let you know if any of these help my blog as well. I would love to get more comments. I understand the lack of comments has more to do with my narrow inch than anything, but I am always trying to improve. I did add comment love which has generated a few more comments. I also need to build more relationships with other bloggers. I share their posts, and i think i need more people who will share mine back. thanks again and take care, max

        Hi Sylvian; I appreciate the link to the tutorial. It was also nice to have you stop by my blog and leave a comment. I’m glad you liked it. I have seen more visits to my two most recent posts. One was because it was more personal than business, and the other was because of better sharing. I have actually gotten four solid enquiries on the post that you read. I consider a solid enquiry one coming from a company with the experience to operate a large park ride like those featured and the cash or credit to pay for one. thanks again and take care, max

      The way you can connect your post to your EZ articles is in what they call the resource box (right below the article) where you are allowed to link to your home page or any of your posts.

      Let me know if you don’t know what I mean. I could maybe show you online.

  • Stacy Flick says:

    Hi Sylviane,

    Thanks for the great content regarding getting traffic to your blog. Quick question though about submitting to RSS feed syndicators. Once you have submitted your RSS feed to them is that it? Does that mean that every time you post on your blog the RSS syndication websites will automatically get a notification or do you have to do this every time you write a new post?

    Hope you can help -Stacy

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Hi Stacy,

      I’m sorry I had missed your comment and question, here on my blog. At times when people comment late on a post, at times I miss them.

      Well, that’s a very good question, and I’ve asked that question myself. I am not sure if RSS feed platforms update the feed automatically or not, but as far as I can tell it doesn’t seem to be the case, so I do it again every time.

      I hope this answer your question and I’ll check your site out by the way.

  • Krithika Rangarajan says:

    I am eternally indebted to you for this post, Ms. Nuccio. 😀

    I wasn\’t aware of any of these blog promotion tactics, barring the usual Social Media sites, of course. I just started a blog 2.5 months ago, and I am currently struggling with writing regularly (but that\’s a whole another issue – do you have any tips on how to avoid the \’blogger funk\’? 😛 )

    I checked out Social Buzz and it definitely impressed me. Of course, I am intrigued by Viral Content Buzz, especially because the articles are posted as \’anonymous\’, which negates any bias and levels the playing field. This way, the amount of \’social sharing\’ depends ONLY on the quality of the article. Great concept, me thinks! 😉

    Also, I have decided to comment more on other blogs – I never thought this was an
    art until I stumbled onto Adrienne Smith’s website! Then I made a promise to start off with commenting to at least one blog post…and slowly increase my participation.

    I need more than 24 hours a day. Actually, I need to spend less than 5 hours procrastinating! haha

    To sum up my rambling, thank you very much 🙂

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Hi Krithika,

      I’m so sorry I had missed your comment back on October 2nd here. Because I have 3 blogs and very busy beside the blogs as well, so at times I miss later comments.

      I hope you’ll be back again.

      To answer your question about how to overcome the fact that you’re struggling with ideas to write about I have several posts here that answer this question, but I will write other posts on the subject as well. I hope you’ll come to read them.

      Thank you for coming and sorry for the late response.

  • DeeAnn Rice says:

    Sylvianne,

    I have used most all of those places to promote my blog posts but I must admit I am not as consistent at it as I should be. You have listed a couple that I did not know about as well and think I will have a look at them.

    Pormoting our posts is important. If we are going to take the time to write something we should take a little extra time to make sure that people actually see it and read it.

    Great list of places to promote a blog post.

    Dee Ann

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Hi DeeAnn,

      I know that doing all those steps can be time consuming, and believe me I also know it’s hard to be constant and keep up with it. However, consistency is what pays off over time.

      We spend much time creating our blog posts, so it’s worth it to promote them as much as possible. Doing those steps has already increased my traffic.

      Also, you don’t have to do it all the same day. I do 3 or 4 per day over the whole week.

  • Michael Belk says:

    Hey Sylviane, that is a great list places to promote. I know new ones come up all the time, but I am really not familiar with newsvine.Thanks for the list.

  • Michael John says:

    Great article on how to promote your blog posts. Every time I make a new page or post I also promote the new links on social networks especially Google plus Twitter and Facebook. Another good idea is to have the social network share buttons on your site for visitors to share your posts this works and will also help to promote your blog or website.

  • Glenys says:

    Thanks for the tip about including your post link under the description for your Pinterest pin. I didn’t know that the link would be lost otherwise when re-pinned.

    I really like BizSugar as well.

    With Feedage, you mentioned that you post the feeds of your new blog post on there every week. Do you mean that you have posted your RSS feed which then displays your recent posts or is there a way to post weekly as well?

    Thanks for a great list Sylviane. I’ve also bookmarked some of your related posts to return to.

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Hi Glenys, and welcome here.

      About Feedage I mean that you need to get the RSS feed of your post (for example by clicking on the RSS feed icon on your very blog) and post it on feedage.

      This tool might not be as effective as it used to, but I know for a fact that it’s still worth it, though.

      Thanks for coming and nice meeting you.
