How to Promote Your Website/Blog?

Looking for free tips of how to promote your website/blog? Over the years I’ve learned tips all over the place from Internet on how to promote a website/blog. I think it is better listing them here so whoever stumbles on My Internet Stuff site will find them useful here:

  1. Write informative articles about your niche so people will link to you. This is call link-bait.
  2. Submit different version of those informative articles to major article directories. If people like your article, they will post it in their sites. So you’ll get one-way link even for Free.
  3. Join forums that are related to your niche. Set up your profile there so your signature link will point back to your website/blog.
  4. Sign up social bookmarking sites and post your links there. Although most of them don’t provide do-follow links, still you’ll get traffic from them.
  5. Find relevant websites/blogs to comment on. If allowed, leave your link there to point back to your website/blog. Most website/blog owners don’t mind that as long as what you said is natural and relevant to his/her site.
  6. Sign up for Google Alert with the keywords of your niche. That is how you can  find relevant websites/blogs to comment on.

  13. Sign up for Squidoo and Hubpages, write about your niche, and have links pointed back to your website/blog.
  14. Use robots.txt file to control certain files if you don’t want your website/blog to end up with duplicated contents.
  15. When you create your articles, make sure you have your keywords written within the title. Good headlines will attract more potential customers.

  19. Sign up a Free account in Craigslist.org, and post your website/blog within your ads. Make sure you don’t spam.
  20. Provide Google Translate for your foreign visitors so you can keep them informed. Although Google Translate is not 100% accurate, it is better than nothing.

  8. Hi there Lanna, I find your blog really helpful. I’m thinking I should thank you for that 🙂 Thank you…

  9. You make a great point. Got some great information here. I think that if more people thought about it that way, they’d have a better time understanding the issue.

  10. I keep reading the articles here since I read the “Checking Wheter a Blog is Nofollow or Dofollow?” . Thanks for this post. very informative.

  11. After research just a few of the blog posts on your website now, and I actually like your means of blogging. I bookmarked it to my bookmark web site checklist and will likely be checking back soon. Pls take a look at my site as well and let me know what you think.

  12. I’m impressed, I need to say. Actually hardly ever do I encounter a weblog that’s each educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you might have hit the nail on the head. Your thought is excellent; the issue is one thing that not sufficient persons are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for one thing referring to this.

  13. It’s been a year since my website was deployed but I think nobody visits it. And as I read to this post, it seems that the problem is the lack of promotion. Thanks for this.
