The tasks in this area are designed to promote the posts that you publish on your blog. This kind of promotion will help you achieve several goals:
– Increase the number of visits on your website.
– Increase the conversions and sales on your website.
– Get more links, directly from some of the proposed resources and indirectly from people who will find your blog, consider your content interesting and link to your website.
Most resources proposed in this area have very clear guidelines on their policy for admitting new pages. It is important that you read these guidelines carefully because otherwise you are at risk of your account being suspended and you will not be able to use that resource.
We recommend that you do all tasks manually as it will give consistent results over time. Your goal is quality, not quantity.
Many resources penalize accounts that are only used for self-promotion, so they advise / require you not only to post your own web pages, but pages from other websites as well. We recommend you follow this standard.
We have called this area “Promote your blog” and not “Promote your site”, as many of the resources mentioned are intended to enlist your blog articles that add value to the reader. Register business pages of your website will not give good results, and they will not be supported by many of the mentioned resources.
When using the resources from this area, you should carefully read the instructions on each of the tasks that will guide you step by step to create the accounts.
We recommend diversifying the text you use to make the accounts (if possible). Using many of the resources, you will be asked for information such as a title and description. Try to diversify the information in the fields in order to:
– Avoid excessive increase in the density of anchor text, i.e. the text used in links pointing to your website. Using always the same text in the links is penalized by the search engines.
– Using always the same text often denotes the use of automation tools that are frowned upon by search engines or by the owners of the mentioned resources.
For each of these resources the following fields are specified:
Title: The name of the resource that is the subject of the explanation.
URL: The address where you can find that resource.
Description: A brief explanation of the nature of the resource.
Theory: Additional information about the resource, including background information, the type of content and interaction.
Guidelines: The rules you must follow in order to register your website with the resource. We always recommend respecting these guidelines.
Instructions: Step by step guide on how to publish your posts.
Languages: Languages that are supported by the resource. For example there are resources that only support websites in English or another specific language, while there are other resources with no limitations.
Sector: Similar like with the previous point, there are resources that support websites in any sector (we call them general), while other resources are only for websites about a particular topic (e.g. marketing, entertainment …).
Additional Resources: In some cases we will mention other websites or links, if you want more information on the resource in question.
Setup Time: The first time you want to promote a post from your website, you will create a new account with the application you are using. Logically this entails more time than later, when you use the same resource (after you have already created the account).
Regular time: This includes the following items:
– Approximate time necessary to read the instructions and guidelines that we have prepared for you describing the resource in question.
– The time necessary to upload the article (assuming that you have previously created an account).
– Promotion of other content, as some resources will prohibit exclusively promoting your own blog and require you to perform additional tasks (enlist third-party posts, vote for other websites, etc.). This logically requires some time, so that is why we count total time necessary for being active.
