7 Easy Ways To Increase Your Blog Exposure

increase blog exposure
Blogging can be frustrating if you don’t get many visitors. I only have one word for you – exposure. What you need to do is “sell” your blog by exposing it to a wider audience. In turn, this will get you the readers you thought you’d never have. Blog exposure can be done in a variety of ways but among the easiest techniques involve social media, blog commenting, link exchange, forum posting, guest posting, submissions in blog directories, and allowing your posts to be shared. These seven blog-exposing methods are not only easy but they too are cost-free ways of doing it.

Before we move on, you may like to read:

1. Sign up for social media

Create accounts for Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and other social networks of your choice. If possible, they should be tied to the same email associated with your blog for easier management. Facebook and Google+ allow you to create public fan pages of the same name as your blog. With Twitter, you can create a profile name related to your blog title. The key is to brand your accounts with the same name as your blog so people wouldn’t have difficulty finding you.

To effectively expose your blog, link your accounts to it by placing its URL under the profile description. You should also use these accounts for sharing newly published posts. Don’t forget to use hashtags when applicable! Hashtags help people find content when browsing social networks like Google+ and Twitter. It is also important that you advertise existing social media accounts on your blog. You can link to them from your home page, “about me” section, or an entire page dedicated for that purpose.

2. Allow sharing of posts

Allow sharing of postsApart from signing up for social media, design your blog in a way that allows readers to “Like” your post with Facebook, +1 it publicly with Google+, tweet it to followers, and many more! When readers perform these actions, your posts will be shared to their friends and followers, thus exposing your blog to more potential readers. Digg, Delicious, and Stumble Upon are three more sites where readers can share or recommend your posts.

3. Leave comments on blogs and websites

Blog commenting is another way of exposing your work to more readers. You will have better chances of attracting visitors by leaving comments on posts that are related to your niche. In the space that says “website,” leave the URL of your blog and use either your real name or blog title on the space for “Name”. In sites that use KeywordLuv, you can use both by writing your Name @ Keyword. It is best that you comment in recent posts of popular blogs and websites if you want exposure. Make sure that your comment is relevant to the post and to other readers.

4. Exchange links

Enter a link exchange agreement with blogs that are of the same niche. By linking to each other, both of you get to benefit from exposure. You can create a static blogroll on your home page or better yet, make a page that lists the blogs you’ve exchanged links with. If you decide to place a blogroll on your home page, only position it at the bottom and not on the side to prevent readers from bouncing off your site towards another.

5. Participate in forums

Engaging in discussions at forums related to your niche is another way of exposing your blog. When you join these forums, be sure to follow their rules on posting links on threads and signature. Most of them discourage starting threads that contain links and only allow links in signatures after making several posts.

At the beginning, you can simply link to your blog by placing it on your profile. Once you have reached the minimum number of posts, you can place links to your blog on signature or threads depending on forum rules.

6. Write guest posts

Write guest posts
Consider writing guest posts for websites that allow it. Here, you can write about any niche that interests you and caters to the readers of the website. You do have to follow a website’s guidelines on guest posting regarding linking. Most of them only allow links under the author biography.
