- Submit your blog and use your blog as a tool of syndication. Your blog is your voice, your means of communication so submit it to directories, during blogging or during conversations you know ‘we have a great blog’ I just submitted my blog, it’s that simple.
- Submit your RSS feed to the aggregators – RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a way to reach people without them having to go to your website directly all the time. RSS should be submitted to as many different aggregators as you can get it out to.
- Make sure your URL is in any content you are putting on article sites. Your URL is important as it gives Google a way of seeing that people are confident in your site…Google is a search engine that spends a lot of time watching people’s behaviour. They understand how people talk about other websites so your URL http://www.yourblog.com is as incredibly important to you as your keyword based link that points back to your homepage.
