Blog Tip – Blog/RSS Promotion

So you’ve got a blog, it is looking good, the design is working and your content is stimulating – now you’d like to spread the word on what you have to offer, after all blogs are designed to be read! How should you get the word out?

Well you’ve probably already read my Blog Tips series (there is 45 tips listed there) – especially the Finding Readers mini series.

Your next port of call should be RSS Top55 – Best Blog Directory And RSS Submission Sites. This article has 55 (actually they are now 64) places where you can submit your blog’s URL and RSS feed. They range from search engine’s to blog specific engines, to blog directories, to blog review sites. It is the best collection of resources I’ve seen collated in the one place to date. Note that you’ll have to have an RSS feed for most of them to be of any use to you – if you don’t know about RSS check out this article on RSS for a great introduction.

To submit to all of them will take you an hour or so, but in my experience the key to being read is to try a multi-pronged approach – this approach has 64 approaches so it might be an hour well spent. RSS won’t guarantee you huge hits, but its an increasingly important part in the puzzle to having your thoughts read by others.

    I used Blog Planter to submit my blog to the RSS Top55. So far, so good. It also had a few other ones that weren’t on the list.

    Okay, my brain is now whirling. I’ve been reading through your blogs on beginning to blog, and every one leads me onto another post with important information. I think I’ve bookmarked about 15 things now to go back and study in more depth.

    I sure wish I’d found this when I first started blogging. It’s got me all excited and invigorated to take things up again.

    Probably took me about 3 hours to submit to all, I saved time using the FF widgets also…now waiting for the results.

    My weekend project – a Feed Submission Service for RSS feeds. What does it do? Submit your RSS, XML, RDF, etc. feed to 15 feed aggregates including Daypop, Technorati, Google and Yahoo Search. What do I have to do?…
