Thousands of blogs are started everyday but most of these blogs will fail over time. There are many reasons why most new blogs will fail that new bloggers are unaware of. One of those reasons is not taking the time to submit blog to certain directories. The term “if you build it, they will come” is not necessarily the case when first registering a domain and starting a blog. Many factors go into promoting a blog in order for it to become successful. Some blogs incorporate a search function that allows readers to search for other blogs. A new blogger should always submit blog to these types of blog searches in order to gain more exposure.
Bloggers should always submit blog feed to RSS feed directories as well. RSS feeds are a way to update new content to anyone that is subscribed to the feed. When a blogger does not take the time to submit blog to RSS feeds, then subscribers will not be updated with new content that is posted. Another important aspect that bloggers need to take part in is pinging services. Bloggers who submit blog to pinging services will experience faster exposure than those who do not. Pinging services alert search engines of a new post or a new blog. These new blogs need to be found and given a position within the search engines. All bloggers are highly advised to submit blog to pinging services.
Pinging services however, are only used to alert search engines of new blogs and blog posts. Blog search engines are used to promote blogs to readers of all categories. Many different blog directories allow blog owners to submit blog to their directories. Some of these directories charge a service fee when using their services. It’s important for a blogger to submit blog to both free services and a few paid services as well. The idea is to get as much exposure as you can, not only with search engines but with other blog readers as well.
