Gone are those days, when banners and hoarding were playing the main role in publicity. Now a days what matters is electronic publicity i.e. e-publicity. And this matters, if you are running or using a website!
Now, people don’t wish to play cricket, football and other games on the ground. They feel happy and satisfied with online games. Game’s popularity is now measured by Google’s page rank, Alexa rank, number of backlinks etc. People use to play pokers through home using internet and are earning (losing too) more than they could do in real gambling game.
Only good domain name, frequent postings, quality content doesn’t matter fully. One more thing is required to make yourself and your website popular and that is publicity!.
So the question is how to do online publicity of our website?
Answer is much simpler. By using following things at least:
- Social Bookmarking
In short, social bookmarking for publicity can fetch you
a. lots of unique visitors
b. Healthy and active backlinks
c. High indexing over search engines
There can be immense websites for bookmarking your website, but I would prefer
- Meme from yahoo (less popular, but Yahoo tag is sufficient I guess )
- DZone (for programmers)
- 2. Commenting in more interactive way at your own site
If you are the owner or moderator of any website then don’t forget to comment in your website when you get comments in your website. It can draw users to view your website again and again.
If you are using wordpress CMS for your blog then commentluv module can allow you to publish your articles too 😀 (This website has commentluv module enabled . So keep commenting here 😉 )
3. Comments on other websites
It seems bit surprising right, that how commenting on other websites can popularize your website?
Well, I would say comment on those topics and websites only which has nice rapport and belongs to your niche. It will give you good backlink of like minded users. And you can put your website name in signature too!
But avoid commenting in every post now and then. Be wise and use your words wisely.
4. Social Networking
As we know and already felt the necessity of social networking websites in our personal and social life. As million of users visit these popular websites daily so it would be really a great idea to share links with these websites. Some popular social networking websites are:
- Facebook (can’t you live a single day without using FaceBook?)
- Twitter (Its still not so famous in India but who cares )
- Google+ (its still gaining popularity, so sharing here will be a nice idea too )
- LinkedIn (Millions of users use this professional website)
- Youtube (For promotion of video based contents )
5. Guest Posting
Find time to post at other’s website too! It will help you in building good rapport with other like minded or same niches people and you will gain trusted authors back for your website too.
While posting in someone’s website, keep few points in mind:
- Write posts similar to your niche
- Provide few backlinks (relevant one of course) of your website
- Share it with your network, friends and as above said places
- Choose website wisely by looking over its popularity over net and niche should be same as of yours website
6. Bloggers Community
This is similar to old day’s technique that spread the words to your neighbors, to your family members, to your friends community etc.
Here are some popular (according to my observation) bloggers community which may help you in gaining popularity, authentic users, nice backlinks, comments etc
a. Indiblogger (specially for Indian bloggers)
b. Technorati (I found it little tough to use but has nice rapport over internet)
f. WordPress.com(WordPressindia for Indian bloggers )
