You decided to start your blog and did your research. You have a great topic and a new angle on it. The blog is looking good and there is some content in it. SEO is done. Keywords are in place and tags added. How do you get people to find your blog now?
You can just wait until the search engines crawl your blog and appear in the search results. It might take a while, but it is a possibility. Or you can speed up the process with these 3 easy to follow suggestions:
First, submit your blog to blog directories. Just Google “blog directories” and you will find a lot of them. Make sure that it is a good blog directory by looking if they have the blogs categorized, the ability to subscribe to your RSS feed and how strong the page rank of the directory is. Some good ones are: http://www.technorati.com, http://www.blogarama.com and http://blogcatalog.com. By adding your blog to a blog directory, you add to your blog’s SEO because most of the directories are well indexed by the search engines.
Finally, integrate your blog with your social networks. Connect your blog in your LinkedIn profile, add it to your Facebook page and feed it to Twitter.
Now your blog is all over the web. People will find it. Make sure you keep the content great and fresh. Have fun!
