    I have been finding it extremely difficult to devote time on almost each and every post for promoting it on various social networks. There are sites like shesaidbeauty, stylecraze where you just have to connect your blog and they will automatically be posting your blog posts. Thus the time is saved and we can divert effort to other sites. However i just wished to know are there any more websites where we can just put up the RSS feed of our blog and thus work could be done easily. Any idea please help me out.

      Hi younghopes!,
      Good question. I found it difficult to put RSS feeds into my websites. However, try making a website using weebly and you can put an RSS Feed there as well as social network links.

      There are several sites which allow you to "connect your blog", and the result is that all your blog posts appear on that site automatically.

      Has it dawned on you that you're creating duplicate content that way?   

      These sites are very clever - they're hoping that their copy of the post will rank higher than your original post, because their site is bigger and they probably do more promotion.  Result - they earn the money and you don't. 

      So be careful.

      As for RSS directories - they do exist, but the links you get from them have very little value these days.

        thanks Marisa, so perhaps it is futile to look upto these sites and RSS directories

    thanks Renee and Susi, actually i was talking about RSS Feed directories which i read somewhere about, perhaps i couldn't write the question in the proper format. There are feed directories which accepts the feeds of your blog and you just have to submit your url, email, and blog name and they directly submit it to various search sites. So is it good to do that?  i hope i am clear this time. i just googled 'rss directory submission' and found hundreds of these.

      Spamming sites with your links can take more time than it's worth, and often they're nofollow backlinks anyway, and quickly sink under all the other spam posted to those sites in the name of self promotion.

      Until you get a handle on the type of writing that works for Google, don't worry about promotion; concentrate on learning about SEO and writing more content.

      It's a good idea to promote the hubs that are getting regular Google traffic - if you promote a hub that is one of thousands of articles on the topic (some saturated topics such as weight loss, beauty etc are like that), then even if you throw hundreds of links at it, it may never bring you proper traffic. So promote what works and leave what doesn't.

        thanks WryLilt, surely i would be concentrating more on good content but the thing is if we post a link to our post on fb, twitter, googleplus etc etc. we cannot over do that, so the article though of good value dies down after some time. thus, i thought of looking after some other ways to promote content than just these social networking sites. What;s your views on keeping an article alive, perhaps written 1 month back?

          You don't need to "keep your article alive". The older your article gets, the better Google will like it (if you write good articles on reasonably unsaturated topics.)

          The older an article gets, the more traffic it should get from Google. I have entire accounts I have never promoted in any way - I've just written hubs and left them alone. Some of those hubs get anywhere up to a hundred visits a day... And if it's quality content, Google traffic will also start promoting it for you - by pressing the like button, pinning the images etc. You shouldn't have to do anything - and if you DO have to promote it, it means it's not worth promoting, often!

            thank you so much for this information, as well as for making me know the right strategy for my content. Surely i would be concentrating more on good quality hubs than on promotion itself

            Stay Blessed!!
