Looking to market your blog? Let's start with the basics. You need to get your blog to show up in search engine results. You also want prospects to stumble upon your blog. What's an easy and cost effective way of doing this? List your blog with the best blog directories.
We’ve compiled this list of the 19 best blog directories. We’ve ranked them based on our editorial review, monthly US visitors (estimated by Compete), and Google page rank (a key factor in determining ranking in search results… the higher the number the better).
|Best of the Web Blogs||150,000||6|
|Blog Top Sites||59,000||3|
It only takes a few minutes to submit your blog. You’ll register with the blog directory, type in your blog’s URL, choose categories that your blog fits, and provide helpful keyword tags to make it easy for directory searchers to find you. That’s it.
Best of all, most blog directories offer free blog submission!
In a few cases, you may be asked to pay a fee but even then it’s affordable (e.g., $35 per year)… and some offer advertising opportunities that make sense for you to consider. But don’t be surprised if the blog directories ask that you link your blog back to them. Why not as they need promotion too.
So what are you waiting for? Let’s start marketing your blog!
