More than 7.5 million blog posts are published daily.
But very few blog posts catch the attention of readers. And remaining blog posts are not read by a single person.
So it is extremely important to promote your website and blog.
How to get your blog noticed by people?
If you can learn the art of blog promotion techniques, then only you will become a successful blogger.
It is essential to understand that SEO takes a long time, and you can not rely on just SEO. You have to learn various methods by which you can promote your website.
So if you don’t know the strategies, then here are some advanced and valuable strategies that will help you to drive targeted traffic instantly without SEO.
Strategies to Get Your Blog Noticed
1. Use Question Answer Website (Like Quora, Forums):
Question answer websites like Quora, Stack Exchange, and different forums are great places to promote your blog and get targeted traffic without SEO.
Here are some excellent Question Answer websites that you can use to promote your website.
Question Answer Sites
- Stack Exchange
- Yahoo Answers
- Stack Overflow
On these websites, you can help other people by answering the queries and attach your website link.
Pro tip: Don’t give a complete answer to the queries. Generate some curiosity and then give your website link.
Because if you give the complete answer, then why people will land on your website. They already got the answer.
Another thing you must remember that you should not spam (mean, don’t post too many answers and links on the same day) on these websites; otherwise, your account may get banned.
Answer 2 to 3 questions on each platform on a daily basis. And in a month, you will be amazed by seeing the increase in traffic.
Other than that, you can also join different forums that are related to your niche.
You can find this forums site by simply searching on google.
Example: (Search these keywords on Google)
- Blogging forum sites
- Health forum sites
- SEO forum sites
After shortlisting some of the good forums in your niche, it’s time to join those forums and start helping other people.
In this way, you can promote your blog and get more visitors to your website.
2. Use Content Syndication Networks:
Content syndication networks are those where you can post your piece of content with a link.
The concept is quite similar to the question answer website, but you are posting a copy of a blog post in the case of a content syndication network instead of answering the question.
Many people think it may cause a duplicate content issue in google. But there will not be an issue if you post the same content on content syndication sites because of canonical tags.
As per Moz, Canonical tag is a way of telling search engines that a specific URL represents the master copy of a page.
So, it is entirely safe to copy paste your original content on these sites.
Here are some of the best content syndication sites.
The traffic of these sites are enormous. If people find your content valuable, then they will surely land on your website.
3. Email Promotion:
The conventional way of getting traffic is people search some queries on Google; they find your website and land on your website.
After getting the answer from your blog, people fairly remember or revisit your website.
So, you lose your potential audience.
Then what is the solution?
If you can take the email of your audience, then you can send an email whenever you publish a new blog post.
In this way, you can build a great relationship with your audience.
But how can you take the email of the audience?
You can offer something free in return for their email. The best example is you can provide a free eBook to your audience, and in return, they have to just provide their email.
When you got the email, you can now promote your different blog posts via email marketing. And people will revisit your website.
There is one last problem with email promotion.
You can not send bulk emails via Gmail, Yahoo Mail, or Hotmail, etc. Because these are built for personal conversation, and if you do this for bulk emailing, then the message will directly go into the spam folder.
No one checks the spam folder.
One solution is you can send emails one by one to all of your audience. But let say if you have an email list of 5,000 people then sending email to 5,000 people one by one is impossible.
The best solution is using an email marketing tool by which you can send 5,000 emails with one click.
And if you use an email marketing tool, then the emails will not go into the spam folder. It goes into Updates, promotion, or inbox tab.
Now it is clear that you should use an email marketing tool.
But which is the best email marketing tool?
The best email marketing tool that I personally use for email marketing is Active Campaign.
Active Campaign is straightforward to use, beginner-friendly, and also affordable.
So, you can use Active Campaign to promote your blog post through email.
4. Facebook Promotion:
Facebook is something that we use on a daily basis.
The population of the world is 7.9 billion (as of 2021), whereas the monthly traffic of Facebook is 21.08 billion (as of 2021).
Traffic is more than population because people revisit on Facebook.
So, you can imagine the big opportunity to get a chunk of traffic through Facebook.
But if you want to drive traffic to your blog through Facebook, then you must follow some strategies; otherwise, you can not use it effectively.
Here are the two best strategies.
You can join Facebook groups related to your niche, and there you can promote your blog article.
Build Your own community:
Also, you can create your own group and promote a blog article. But building your own group is quite typical if you are just starting, so it is better to follow the first strategy.
6. Combine Social Media Promotion
Facebook also is a social media site, but I have discussed it separately because this is the biggest social media site.
Other than Facebook, there are many social media sites where you can promote your website and make your blog popular.
Here is the list of best social media sites.
You can find more sites by simply searching on google, but these are the best social media sites to get exposure to your website.
7. SEO Promotion:
The above listed methods can drive massive traffic, but the problem is these all are short term methods (except email marketing).
Suppose you want to get results in the long term and also get huge traffic free of cost. Then you have to do SEO of your blog post.
Now here I will not describe all of the aspects of SEO because this article is based on blog promotion techniques.
The main two aspects of SEO are on-page SEO and off-page SEO.
It would be best if you focused on SEO to get targeted visitors from search engines.
8. Paid Promotions:
If you have money in your pocket, then paid promotion is the best way to promote your blog and get huge exposure to your brand.
Paid promotion techniques give massive reach in less time.
But how to advertise your blog on different platforms?
There are lots of different advertisement platforms available.
Here are few methods you can use.
- Google Ads
- Facebook Ads
- Banner Ads
- Display Ads
- Native Ads
- Solo Ads
- YouTube Ads
And the list is never ending.
Above mentioned techniques are popular.
Remember one thing before running ads that you should have good knowledge of paid advertisement.
And it is not recommended for beginners.
If you don’t have the knowledge, then you will just lose your money without getting desired results.
9. Use Blog Promotion Networks:
There are few blog promotion networks like Social Buzz Club, Viral Content Bee, etc. You can use these networks also to share articles.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Is blog promotion necessary?
Yes. If you are writing a blog post in 2 days, you must spend 7 days promoting your blog (almost 4 times).
Here is an epic example.
Did you ever see a rocket launching anywhere on the internet or TV?
At the initial stage of rocket launching, it burns enormous fuel to provide the required thrust to the rocket.
And after the rocket reaches a certain speed, it burns a very low amount of fuel.
So, when you post your article to provide the initial boost, you must promote your blog aggressively. And after it ranks on Google, it is not required to promote aggressively.
I think you understand why blog promotion is so crucial.
Is these blog promotion strategies work in 2021?
Yes. Professional bloggers use these methods.
Professional bloggers know that if they publish an article today, then it will rank on Google after one to two months.
For getting instant traffic, bloggers use these strategies. And also, it will help to crawl and index their blog post, thus giving fast rank to search engines.
So, you should apply these strategies. And without implementing, you can’t judge that these strategies work or not.
If you apply it properly, then I am assuring you that you will get enormous traffic.
How can I promote my blog for free?
Almost all the methods that have been mentioned in this article are free except paid promotion. All the social media sites, question-answer sites, and content syndication sites are absolutely free to use.
How to avoid spamming?
Spamming means – for getting instant traffic if you share your link many times on the same platform.
You should not spam on any site. You are a professional blogger, not a spammer.
You should help people to get their problems solved by your blog post. So, only post blog links to a targeted audience. Not anywhere.
And after posting 1 to 2 times on one platform, take a rest of 1 day, then again post. These will not be counted as spamming.
If you do spam link posting, then your account and IP address may block to that platform. So, always avoid spamming.
I have mentioned the best techniques for blog promotion. If you follow these techniques properly, then you will surely make your blog popular.
Now I hope you will never ask how to get your blog noticed? or how to promote website.
But remember, one thing implementation is more crucial than just taking the knowledge.
Now you have to decide you just want to take a knowledge or implement these blog promotion techniques.
After reading this article, what will you do?
1. Go to another website and take more knowledge, and then don’t implement anything. After some time you will forget everything.

I hope you will choose the second option.
