40 Ways to Promote your Blog

I recently received a nice contact from Patrick Herber who runs the community blog Top Secret Blogger. He brought his article to my attention, and I asked him if I could mention it and republish it.

His article, 40 Ways to Promote your Blog, lists tons of Press Release sites, Directories, and Social Networks. I have talked about several like craigslist, blog catalog, and others. I also plan to take this list and make it bigger!

The list is a great starting point for essential tools for your blog.

John Chow just wrote If You Build It They Won’t Come. Just because you create a blog with good content doesn’t mean you will get loads of visitors. Blog marketing is extremely important. The better you can market yourself and your blog, the better blog you can have.

How do you market your blog?

    I have several marketing stategies and ideas coming up for BAYB.

    I also plan to work up a ‘reward’ strategy for people contributing to BAYB, so if your not an author yet, don’t wait on it

    Thank you for the mention of my article. I hope it will inspire others to take some additional steps in their marketing efforts. I have already done so, but again thank you for having the consideration to ask me before republishing this content, there are not to many bloggers on the web these days that would take the time to do so. I look forward to seeing what resources you add and will stay tuned for more.

    Best Wishes,
    Patric Herber

    The quickest way to drive traffic to your blog is the one that hardly anyone mentions: use a service such as Blog Explosion. Sure, you have to spend time clicking on other people’s sites to build up your own credits – but then you release them and your hits go up.

    I belong to both Blog Explosion and Blog Soldier. On Sunday night, early hours of Monday morning, I plan to post an analysis of both these programmes on The Money Blog.
