“Do you promote your Blog through Facebook feeds only?”
Now, if there’s a “Yes!” for this question too, then my friend, you are doing it wrong. Promoting your blog through your Facebook feeds is one way of doing it, but not the ONLY way. A bigger, better and more productive approach is to showcase your skills on search engines. No! Don’t get worried. It’s a simple four step approach that would help you get your dream traffic:
No! Wait! Don’t take us as those crazy people who first tell you to refrain from something and then ask you to do that very thing again. We are not talking about YOUR social media profiles, we are talking about YOUR BLOG(s) social media profiles. For every blog you create, you must have a Social Media Page and a twitter account for that, so that your audience knowswhat to access for more details. Furthermore, it will increase your chances of appearing in the top pages returned by the Search Engines. How? Whenever a person would try to Google you or look up to you on some other search engine, they would see the blog link as well as other related pages to it. If you have multiple accounts, then you can take help of “Facebook Networked Blogs”app or find another app for this purpose. Use your blog’s official name for your Twitter account’s username and include the blog link in the profile.
Relevant Pictures, Images and Videos:
Now, that you have created your hype on Social Media, it’s time to focus a little bit on your Blog. We know your blog is already a masterpiece and doesn’t need our help in the slightest, but here are some suggestions, nonetheless. If you haven’t already added relevant pictures and images into your Blog, then we would suggest you to do that ASAP. I can’t think of a person who would not like a colorful, lively blog. A picture is worth a thousand words and a video is even greater. This will not only increase your traffic and make your readers fall in love with you, but will also increase your ranking in different search engines. How is that possible? Well, here is a pretty straightforward logic for this. When you use search optimized media (videos, images, pictures or anything of that sort), then you are basically increasing the probability of your blog’s appearance on the top pages of the search engines. Now, even if somebody doesn’t search for your blog in particular and searches for that media, your blog link would still appear.
