101 FREE Ways To Promote Your Blog

Hello blogoolians, my name is Sam and I have put together a list of over a hundred blog promotion resources to help you promote your blogs across the World Wide Web! Everyone is asking us “How do i promote my blog for free?” and “What are the free ways to promote my blog?”. Well, the answer is in the list below (in no particular order) and will continue to grow when I discover new methods. There are two lists, one for free blog promotion methods and one for paid blog promotion methods.

Please note that this list is for FREE options only.

promote-blog-facebook

Every man and his dog knows what Facebook is so I’m not going to explain this one but say just one thing: Get a Facebook page for your blog! Example Facebook page.

Sams verdict: Get your friends to click like and each one that does a link will be posted so all their friends can see… and so on.

promote-blog-twitter

Just about every man and his dog knows what Twitter is so I’m not going to explain this one either but say just one thing:  Get a Twitter account for your blog! Example Twitter page.

Sams verdict: Auto link it to your blog so that a message gets send out to your Twitter followers every time you make a post on your blog.

googlesubmiturl
Sams verdict: Let google know about your blog url and url’s to your recent blog posts. Although they say that they cannot make any guarantees about when or if they will appear, it won’t hurt your chances!

yahoo-answers
Sams verdict: Answering questions on Yahoo Answers is a great way to drive traffic to your blog. Just search for topics covered in your blog and then answer peoples questions including a link to your blog post. Ofcourse, you can also post your own questions.

promote-blog-pinoyexchange

With stats like Pinoyexchange has 402,938 users, 51,457,768 posts, and 6759 online users (when I last looked). And to top that registration is free! Who is going to argue with that promoting?

Sams verdict: Gave me 75 visits (322 page views) during the first 5 weeks.

alexa

Alexa is a very popular website that offers free traffic metrics, search analytics, demographics, and more.

Sams verdict: A great idea is to check similar blogs (ie your established competitors) incoming links and then visit them and try to get links also to your blog. This can be time consuming but will definately create a “relationship” between your blog and your niche!

promote-blog-delicious

Delicious is a leading social bookmarking site where you can upload your favourites and share them with others. Signup is free but you need a yahoo email address.

Sams verdict: It’s a must for any blogger who wants free promotion of thier blog posts. I have done a separate post on Howto Bookmark Your Entire Blog into Delicious in just 2 minutes.


promote-blog-blinklist

Blinklist is like iTunes for web pages. You can upload your favourites (bookmarks in your browser) and share any of those favourites with others who are also on blinklist. You can add friends and view their bookmarks.

Sams verdict: Gave my blog 8 visits (32 page views) during the first 5 weeks.

promote-blog-blogoola

BLOGOOLA is a great way to promote your blog online and increase your blog traffic for free. They offer a blog surfing system where you view someones blog and in return someone views your blog. It is free to add blogs but they also offer really good exposure for your blog and to represent your country in your niche area. With over 1,000 signups from 29 different countries in its first few weeks it certainly has the potential to reach a worldwide audience.

Sams verdict: Free signup your blogs with dofollow links  and doesn’t require a backlink. Also the blog surfing system is a great way to get people looking and interacting with your blog whilst increasing your blog traffic.

promote-blog-technorati

Technorati is a free blog directory that has been around for a while (around 1,192,108 blogs listed).

Sams verdict: Took a long time to get my blog listed, almost 3 weeks! Not sure if it is bringing much traffic yet. I will keep this space updated.

quarkbase

Quarkbase is an easy way to find website information. See people, traffic data, similar sites, social comments, description, social popularity and much more about websites and blogs.

Sams verdict: Just type your blog address into quarkbase and it will do the rest. Links are auto generated to your blog and it gives you decent stats including recent twitter comments.

promote-blog-twiends

Twiends is a great way to find Twitter followers who are interested in the same things you are. For example, you can add “blogging” to your interests and then it will list all those people who also have “blogging” as an interest. It also provides the ability to gain Facebook fans or turn your credits into website views.

Sams verdict: Please Follow the Rules and Best Practices provided by Twitter. Be careful to use it in moderation because Twitter may ban your account if you go crazy following and unfollowing hundreds of people everyday.

promote-blog-digg

Sams verdict: Not sure if it is bringing much traffic yet. I will keep this space updated.

Sams verdict: Use Slingset to create your own social media page and create links to your blog posts.

Sams verdict: A must if you like to use browser toolbars. It’s useful for posting to social networks fast, getting short link urls fast and shows you how many people have clicked the link and previous conversations before you post it which is good to see how popular the link it before you share it.

zemanta

Zemanta is a browser plugin that lets you turn your boring text blog posts into a high quality social blog post that contains images, content links, audio, news links and related links.
