Blogging

Anonymous

Hello Advisors,

I recently started a blog and was looking for some tips on how to increase traffic and promote it to more readers? I have worked hard at creating a modern and elegant design and layout and now I need people to come check out my site! Any tips on how to build a popular blog?

Thanks!

Social Media

Social media outlets such as Facebook or Twitter are a great way to introduce your website to readers online! Good luck :)

Advertise.

I definitely agree with GlamGal. Using any Social Media site would be a great way to get readers attention. You can also post on general forums, too! There are a lot of forums out there for just "Blog" related things, which would be another perfect choice to test out.

social media

Agree with all the comments here. You can comment on blogs in your niche but don't spam your links (atleast make it look genuine lol)

Google Plus

A couple months late, but there are also blog groups on Facebook you can look up and join, link up during weekly blog parties is huge too. Have you tried Google Plus? That's huge and I get a handful of my readers from there as well.

Blog Hopping

Find blog hops that are related to your blog. If it is a mommy type blog, link up to blog hops hosted by other mommy bloggers. Don't forget to follow all the "rules" for the hop and comment on other peoples blogs and build relationships with other bloggers that seem to have similar interests as you.

LINK other social media

Link site like twitter, pinterest, instgram....crossing platforms helps increase traffic. Otherwise get out in to cyber space and network. Cross links and site badges help promote other mommy bloggers :) welcome and good luck!

Blog hop

Join a blog hop. A lot of blogs have them every couple of weeks.

Get Yourself Out There

To get your blog seen by others, you need to get yourself out there and start getting involved in forums, facebook groups, communities and add value to every thing you say. Be sure to add your link where you can (don't be spammy) leave comments on other blogs. Maybe do a contest or host a blog hop like Nicol mentioned above. And be consistent when you add to your blog. Post at least once a week, maybe twice if you can. There are lots of ways to share your blog posts. Post them on your facebook profile. Good Luck!
