Merely writing a blog is not the only way to have a huge traffic on your blog. It’s a hard fact that content is king and if you keep blogging of your interest, the traffic and money will keep flowing in. But it will not milk out every penny of your effort. There are other things that you can do to maximize your profit:
- Index your newly launched blog fast by major Search Engines
- Increase traffic to your blog
- Improve your SERPs (Search Engine Result Positions)
Why wait right? Content can be king but waiting around for traffic to come by itself is not a good way to start blogging. So let’s start…
What a user want search engine provide him/her through the search result. If our blog is on their search result, it is possible for users to visit our blog. So getting indexed on a search engine, say google, is best way to get traffic on your blog.
Is it possible to get your blog indexed on google within 24 hours of launch? Yes.
There are several ways to get indexed by major Search Engines. Easiest way is to get mentioned by established blogs. This usually will get your blog indexed within 24 hours. But since we are new (i.e the newly launched blog of ours) I don’t think any blogger want to mention it. So instead of begging other bloggers to notice your newly launched blog, you just have to figure out other ways of getting indexed by Google fast. Can it be done? Absolutely! (All it takes a little effort on your side).
1. Blog Communities
Blog communities enjoy a good followers list. Some of these are having a very good rankings in Google and other Major Search Engines Results, they are: MyBlogLog, BlogCatalog, Blogged and NetworkedBlogs, particularly MyBlogLog. Registering your blog on these communities will certainly get these search engines to notice your blog and they have to index your blog. So, go ahead and register for an account on these communities and list your blog on it.
Ad-ons: Your blog’s description (have a proper write-up), keywords & tags (add related keywords and tags to your listing, this will be used by other members to find your blog), branding (put your logo, avatars, screenshots etc. have a consistent branding everywhere), and list your blog in the correct category.
2. Site Valuation & Stats Sites
How Much Your Site Worth? It depends on sites ranking in Search Engines. All you need to do is to go there and check how much your site worth. This would create a special page for your blog (like this) and consecutively it would be indexed by Google. Here is a list of worthy sites: WebsiteOutlook, StatBrain, CubeStat, WebTrafficAgents, BuiltWith, WhoIs, QuarkBase, URLfan and AboutTheDomain.
3. Feed Aggregators
For get better indexing list your blog’s feed in these feed aggregators Feed-Squirrel, OctoFinder, FeedAdage. As you submitted your feed to these sites, they will keep track of your newly published posts and index them in their site. Whenever someone clicks on the blog post title, he/she will be redirected to your original blog post sending you free traffic and getting your latest posts indexed by Google.
4. Social Sites
Social networking sites are very useful to indexing your blog’s by Search Engines. It is useful especially when you have targeted keywords.
For example, if your blog’s name is bestblogging it’s a good practice to register the same username at twitter as @bestblogging, and to create a page in Facebook at www.facebook.com/bestblogging. Having a consistent keyword-username on all major Social Sites will help get your blog indexed faster, and at a later stage it will also help build a “brand” for your blog.
5. Misc Sites
Squidoo is a community website that allows people to create pages (called “lenses”) on various topics. Creating a topic that is related to your blog and then including your feed in that page would help your blog get indexed by Search Engines. Squidoo used to have a really good ranking in Google results, but not so much today. But it’s still ranks well and it shouldn’t be neglected.
ChangeDetection is a website that monitors sites for changes. When you monitor a particular site using ChangeDetection, it will ask you whether you want the notices to be public or private. If you say public, it will be published in their news section. For example; AdesBlog.com got an update today, type of update: text additions etc. This of course will get picked up by Search Engines and Search Engines in return will index your blog.
Technorati is a search engine for searching blogs. According to Wikipedia, as of June 2008, Technorati was indexing 112.8 million blogs and over 250 million pieces of tagged social media. It’s a dying breed, but not just dead yet. You have to definitely register for an account and get your blog listed on Technorati.
That’s it. Once you are done with creating accounts and submitting your newly launched blog in the above mentioned sites, you should see your blog in Google’s Search Results within 24 hours. Most of the time it will appear within the next few hours only.
