Update the blog on social media
It plays one of the important roles when it comes to promotion. Social media is a combination of a set of applications, in which you can promote.
Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest plays a major role in social media promotion. Linkedin is also used by many bloggers for sharing their blogs.
Try to use your social media regularly and effectively. Share the article with your friends and ask your friends to share the article. If you are a beginner, this is the initial way of getting the first set of readers to your blog.
Join Facebook groups related to your domains. So you can join with their conversions and get more knowledge.
Use Quora to gain promotion. It is not social media, but also it has some influence on visiting many visitors to your blog. Not like other social media, you cannot just drop your link and go off. It should have a proper answer to the questions in the Quora.
It is one of the fundamental techniques that every blogger suggests to you.
Guest blogging is just writing a post on other websites.
You should do guest posting in your related domain websites, it improves your backlink and domain authority in google.
How guest blogging improves domain authority?
If you are writing a blog post on their website, then they will provide you the backlink to your site’s webpage.
All the guest blogging site doesn’t provide you the backlinks.
Every guest blogging sites have their own set of guidelines. Some guest blogging sites only mention your name.
Even if a high authority site gives you a backlink, most of the time it could be no-follow links. When crawling, the search engines do not count the nofollow links. Through nofollow links, the site authority or page rank cannot be changed. Google also states that they do not crawl the nofollow links in the pages.
When guest blogging, mostly target to get dofollow links. Through dofollow links only, the link juice passes from one website to another.
Not everyone allows you to write the guest post on their website, they keep certain requirements to do a guest posting.
Mostly try to choose the unique topic to write the guest posts.
There are many sites who are accepting guest articles, but it should be related to your domain.
There are many small websites where you place your backlinks, but it doesn’t improve your values. Placing the backlinks in top sites from your domain increases your authority.
If you know any well-known bloggers in your neighborhood, you can approach them for posting your guest blog in their article.
This technique seems to be very strange for beginners, but it is one more efficient way of increasing your authority ranking in google.
Most of the successful bloggers’ journeys start with guest posting. Maybe the guest posting also is a turning point in your blogging journey.
