Are People Finding your Blog?
Blogs are wonderful tools to showcase your information and stay in contact with your prospects and clients. They are also great for SEO (Search Engine Optimization) purposes. Blogs are also one of the first aspects we suggest for our clients as the hub of any Social Media/Social Networking Activities. But now that you have a blog is it being seen?
There are several ways to ensure that your blog is being seen, however today we are just going to focus on syndication. Syndication is basically making your content available and see in other places on the web.
In order to syndicate your blog you will want to send your blog’s RSS feed to multiple websites at one time. This will help increase the exposure for your blog. If you look on the address line of your browser in the upper right hand corner you should see the icon for your blog’s RSS feed, if you click on this you will be able to obtain your RSS feed. Typically this will look like: http://www.sitename.com/feed
Once you have this you can go to one of the sites on the web that allow you to submit RSS feeds and add the feed to your Blog so that it will be found. Here are a handful to start with:
Feed Shark – will submit your RSS feed to several sites
FeedAgg.com – will submit your feed to its directory and gain more visitors
FeedListing – Another great place to submit your RSS feed
Blogdigger – Submit your feed here
RSSAggregator – Free RSS Directory & RSS News Aggregator
