Well that’s a rather impressive blog post title isn’t it – get your blog noticed quickly widely!
First things first – I think I deserve a pat on the back for coming up with that long tail keyword lol ( you’re free to pinch it and use it for a post on your site if you want! ).
Back to the real business though – how to get your blog noticed and stand out from the crowd a little bit…
The Content Blitz
It may sound a little obvious but WRITE REALLY GOOD CONTENT! Granted, sometimes this can be a little easier said than done!
Try and write content that you can actually use and implement – don’t just fill a site with ‘fluff’. If I get stuck I always revert to a ‘list post’ or a ‘how to’ post – they always seem to do well with the social shares and engagement!
I also try and concentrate on ‘evergreen’ content – I don’t just stick to the topics that are hot at the moment. Evergreen content will not necessarily produce instant traffic but it will evolve nicely in the long run!
Basically – write content that will be deemed valuable for years, not weeks!
It’s All About The Length Right?
For some reason the modern blogging world seems to be stuck on this idea of length – the bigger the better right?
Well no, not in my case!
People don’t want to come online and read an essay – leave that for the Financial Times!
I always try and write a conversation I might have with someone – I try and include the reader in the whole process. This is usually achieved by adding a degree of humor to the writing and using plenty of questions to the reader.
Stay away from the fancy words and try to impress readers on a more human level – you will see much greater interaction!
This is unfortunately a real necessity when it comes to getting eyes on your work. In and ideal world we’d just stick to the SEO content guidelines and receive truckloads of traffic from the search engines…but it doesn’t always work out that way!
Have you ever thought about using other bloggers in your niche to tip the scales a little in your favor?
Do a little research and build up a list of bloggers that relate to your chosen subject. They’re are not all going to be that friendly but some will be very approachable.
Stick with this friendly bunch and ask them to maybe social share your posts when they are published. This doesn’t have to be hard – a simple tweet here and there can get things moving (and the post will be related to their niche so they shouldn’t mind that much!).
Don’t just look upon blog commenting as a form of achieving a backlink – it’s a great from of self promotion when used correctly!
Set up a little schedule every day and stick to it – no more than say 20 minutes reserved for RELEVANT blog commenting.
Don’t try and be self-promotional here – if you leave decent comments other readers will pick up on them and want to check you out more ( i.e. they’ll end up back on your website! ).
Mention The Competition
Always try and use the competition to your advantage and don’t be afraid of it. Mention other bloggers and their work in your content and then let them know you have done this.
About 99% of these competitors will be really pleased with your actions leading them to do the ‘social work’ for you.
Think about it – if someone thought your work was good and mentioned it in an article you would want to showcase this fact wouldn’t you?
Create Social Groups
Many of these modern day social platforms rely on members creating groups or communities – get on this train!
Create groups within your favorite social networks and try and draw as many members in as possible. Blast your members with each piece of new content and sit back and watch the traffic roll in!
Get Your Blog Noticed Quickly Widely
Please don’t think that this is going to be an overnight thing – it ain’t! As long as you are consistent and work hard you will see a noticeable increase in content engagement.
Search engines are not that keen on newer websites so you must be in this for the long run – start as you mean to go on and do things the RIGHT WAY!
