3 Great Ways to Market Your Blog

1. My Blog Log
My Blog Log is one of my favorite blogging social networks. Once you join, you will be given a small amount of code to paste in your blog which will help you track your visitors, and a piece of code to add a small widget so that you can see who’s visiting your blog. Once you are a member of My Blog Log, begin visiting the members’ area of the website and start getting to know people who you find interesting. Reach out to them for a telephone conversation about how you can strike a professional JV relationship.

2. Create Great Links, Trackbacks, Categories and Hot News
I do not recommend filling your blog with links just to get Google’s attention…your blog may come across as spam. I do, however, encourage you to use links, trackbacks, and categories which are relevant to your current blog posts. I am somewhat of a news junkie, so I start my day by reading the hot news on CNN, and I then watch Fox or Headline News when I work out. I then will blog about something hot in the news and link several great articles back to my current post.

3. Blog for Fast Company
FastCompany.com offers members the ability to host a member blog on their website. This tool will give you instant exposure and will bump your posts up to the top of Google in a heartbeat. Simply go to the site, sign up to host a member blog and then use your blog url at the bottom of your posts. Blogs which are business, leadership or technology-related are best for this blog, but this process does work (I know…I have 2 blogs on their site!) Please, please do not use push marketing on their blogging tool. They will remove your blog from their system quickly if you do this.
