There are thousands of blog sites on the internet, but how many of them are actually getting quality traffic? A very few of them are getting viewers. It’s not viewers’ fault to not visit their blogs, it’s about how you manage your blog so that the readers are interested to visit your blog. Out of the thousands, only a very few provide actual information to the readers. If your blog is in those few blogs then you must have worked hard to earn this place. And if it’s not, then you need to do what you should do after posting in your blog. Every real blogger works hard to come up with quality contents, and they say that content is the king. You should agree with this.
So are the contents only thing that makes the blog stand out in the crowd? A big no. You need to take some steps after you are done posting something to your blog.
Share on Social Sites
The most important thing about a blog post is letting your readers know that a new blog post has been made. How do you do that? Present days, social sites are the best way to do so. Share the blog post on your social networking sites so that they get to know about your new post. Your readers might like your blog but that does not mean they check your site every day, so that’s how you get them to know.
Let the search engines know
One highly important thing to do is letting the search engines know. Usually the search engine bots scrawl every page in the cyberspace top to bottom but for a new page it takes some times for the bots to know about your site. Let them know by yourself. Either submit your remapped site map or ping your site on any popular pinging website.
Make comments on similar blogs
You can find blogs of similar type under the same niche as yours. Find them out; it will not take much time if you use proper tools. Don’t spam, post useful information and maybe critics. And lastly, post your site link in that comment. If your comment is interesting enough then the readers will visit your website too.
In SEO, this type of bookmarking plays a vital role. It’s not the same as posting your blog on social sites. The social bookmarking sites like Delicious, Reddit, and Stumble Upon etc. can do magic in sharing your website. Bookmarks in these websites earn higher ranking.
After posting each new article; let your readers know by sending them newsletters. If you have a list of subscribers then it’s actually very easy. Highlight the points, why they should be reading your blog.
Respond to comments
The visitors will feel nice if you regularly reply to their comments. Be nice to your readers, they will be nice to you. Simple!
So, next time after you post content in your blog, don’t forget to check if these are done.
