Using Social Networking To Promote Your Blog

Well, first of all, What is a blog? A blog is short for “weblog”. Basically, it is just a website that has entries listed in reverse chronological order. The original idea behind it was to be a online journal or diary that was updated daily. Over the last decade many software programs and blogging platforms have been created to make the process VERY EASY. As the blog writer, depending on which platform you use, you can just type your entry, press submit and it shows up on your blog for the world to see.

News is anything latest, and latest is always the most wanted. Add a news section in your blog. You can either update this section regularly or connect your blog with some proper news website (voluntarily or by paying them some money). In this way, your blog will come in two categories; your particular niche and the latest ongoing news, which will in turn increase the exposure of your blog.

Be particular about the font type and size you use. The text in your posts is the heart of your content, so it’s critical that the text is easy to read. You want to achieve the perfect balance, avoiding a font that is so big that it overtakes the whole page or so tiny that your readers find it difficult to read the text.

I’m sure all of you have dreamed of attracting a thousand, five thousand, ten thousand, even up to one hundred thousand visitors to your blog each month. I know I have. Imagine what that would mean for your bottom line to drive traffic to your blog in those numbers.

Just adding posts to your Carlights will not be of any help if you don’t track it regularly. It is necessary to track the performance of your blog on a regular basis so that you can keep making modifications to it as and when necessary. In order to do this, you can get your blog verified with the Google Webmaster Tool and also use Google Analytics to analyze the data.

But don’t just limit yourself to Google! Search anywhere people can talk about you– online blogs, news sources, forums, social media sites, etc. Making a plan to ensure you control page one of Google’s results and other sites was the most important part of taking control of our online presence and turning our reputation around. If this seems too daunting or you find you don’t have the time manage Google’s first page of results, you may want to hire a reputation manager to help you get this fine tuned like we did.

If they listed their online social networking accounts (like Facebook and Twitter), add them as friends or follow them on twitter. Online friends are fantastic because it starts spreading. As they share stuff that you share, THEIR friends will get to know more about you too and visit your blog. This is how, essentially, online social networking works.

At any rate, you have the option to close blog comments indefinitely or for a specific period of time only, thanks to those blogging applications. In your comment settings, you may choose to close comments for all your posts once they reach 90 days from the date these were published online or you may close comments only on selected posts then turn on the comment section back at a later date.
