Blog Marketing Crash Course

Many people with blogs get disheartened after a​ few weeks or​ months when their blog fails to​ attract thousands of​ readers. it​ is​ a​ real shame,​ because if​ bloggers followed a​ few simple blog marketing steps,​ then they would probably find that there is​ a​ willing audience just dying to​ read about most topics. So what can a​ blogger do to​ get noticed? Here are a​ few blog marketing ideas that should get most blogs getting reasonable traffic in​ a​ short space of​ time.

Blog about a​ niche: the​ world doesn’t really need another ‘vanity blog’ about what you​ had for breakfast. Unless you​ are a​ super-model good looking teenage girl who wants to​ put a​ lot of​ photos on​ your blog,​ then you​ are probably going to​ have a​ hard time getting noticed. if​ you​ already have a​ vanity blog and are wondering why you​ are not getting traffic,​ then you​ need to​ know that the​ vanity blog market is​ totally saturated. Consider starting or​ changing your blog to​ some other topic – an​ interest or​ a​ hobby for example.

Next,​ you​ need to​ start posting to​ forums. Put the​ URL of​ the​ blog in​ your forum signature (don’t spam forums saying “look at​ my blog”). if​ you​ just join in​ the​ conversation naturally,​ then people will get curious and you​ will get a​ few more readers. if​ the​ forum you​ post in​ is​ also to​ do with a​ similar topic to​ your blog then you​ will probably get repeat readers from it! Try to​ find the​ most popular forums in​ the​ niche you​ are writing about. to​ find them,​ just go over to​ Google and search for your niche keyword plus ‘forum’ and you​ should get a​ list. Try to​ find forums with at​ least a​ few thousand active members.

Make sure to​ do trackbacks and pingbacks to​ other blogs that you​ have linked to​ so that they know about you. When people find out that you​ have talked about them,​ they will come to​ see what you​ said. So will some of​ their readers. Talking about popular stories from popular blogs may get you​ more than just a​ few visitors too.

Comment on​ other people’s blogs as​ much as​ you​ can (without spamming). in​ most cases you​ can put a​ link back to​ your own blog and people do follow these links. it​ is​ also good to​ target blogs that talk about the​ same subject as​ you,​ because then you​ will get targeted readers who are more likely to​ continue reading your blog. (Avoid using “comment spam” programs as​ Google can track this and will penalize you).

Most importantly,​ you​ need to​ keep blogging! Nobody will return to​ a​ blog that is​ updated weekly or​ only occasionally. you​ need to​ add more content at​ least once per day,​ especially in​ the​ early stages of​ getting your blog noticed. This is​ hugely important.

Now if​ you​ follow these few rules,​ then you​ should be well on​ the​ way to​ getting a​ constant readership for your blog. Don’t forget to​ check out to​ get more tips on​ making your blog popular.
