7 Websites to Promote Your Articles
Sometimes you wonder how can you drive readers to keep on coming to your blog. I have this problem too. I'm not into the adsense or SEO. Merely, I would like to have readers and get more responses on my writings. (Oh my, I sounded so desperate to have friends.) I'm very new to blogging for readers. I'm always eager to try to promote. Hopefully, by writing this, I can help you to get more traffic to your site too.
Anyway, here are a few sites that I would recommend you to try (if you haven't) in order to promote your site:
1. Stumble Upon
At first, I had Stumble Upon installed in my Nexus Tablet. I love that whenever I click the icon, it brings me to amazing articles on the internet. Then I realized, "hey, I can also submit a link to this site!" And so, I had several people visiting my blog through this link.
I'm not super active in tweeting. However, when I found a site that I like, I share it and tweet it. So, to have people look at your blog, make sure that whenever you write something, post it there as well. Among the other interesting links you shared, your blog is part of them too. Oh, make sure that you have a nice profile picture and the link to your blog beneath it. That's how people get connected to you. Self promotion is the key.
I love pinning! Looking at those pictures are really making me happy. There are so many talented photographers out there and if you can get nice pictures for your post, pin it! I have a lot of traffic from pinterest. I personally think it's cool. Especially when you share about crafts and homemaking.
Technically, reddit has tonnes of subreddits. You can be writing about anything and share it on reddit. There are massive readers and visitors there. I shared one of my articles from hubpages there and I got a lot of visitors coming and dropping by. Be topic oriented when you submit it.
I'm quite new to this. I can't really rate how many people visited my blog from Digg. However, you can try it. Here's where you can submit your link. Digg is a famous website and people have the app in their phones. So, maybe you can get your traffic from there as well.
Create a free account here and start linking your articles! In fact, there are tags that you can use. Thus, readers of this social bookmarking site can search and find your links. The more tags you use, the higher percentage will it be to drive more traffic.
I personally use facebook for my personal life. It's mainly for my immediate family. Thus, I don't put this as the first place for promoting your website / blog. You can still use it if you like.
