After you finish writing your next great post, give yourself a well deserved pat on the back, but don’t relax just yet. Although it is a wonderful piece of writing, only a few people will see it without your help. If you want to make sure it gets the proper attention from potential subscribers, you’ve got to take the neccesary steps to get it out there. Here are just a few tips to get you started.
1. Social Media Before you start sharing the link to your latest great post you need to create a shortened url, that way you can track the amount of clicks to that link. Go to http://www.bit.ly and paste in your url . This will create a shorthand link that you will use whenever you share. This is great because of the character limits of status updates on Twitter and Facebook. Now it’s time to tweet your post and be sure to post the new article on your Facebook page.
Now you’ll want to let the search engines know about your new post. Just visit www.pingomatic.com. Fill out the form, click Ping. They will take care of the rest.
3. Comment On Other Blog Sites
4. Submit Articles
Submit articles to directories, you can rewrite your articles yourself or use an article spinner. This helps create additional backlinks to your site that can be a source of traffic. If you post the same article word for word, it could be considered duplicate content and Google will discount it.
