What’s 1 surefire way to get your blog post promoted?
Have some social bookmarking buttons on your blog post!
I am always shocked when I visit a blog and they don’t have any way for me (the reader) to promote or share their post.
It makes me think: Do they not want me to promote their post?
Do they want me to share it with others?
I am guessing that they do but they haven’t given me any ways to do this!
It doesn’t have to be this way!
Setting up social bookmarking buttons on your blog is actually very simple and it is very beneficial to you and to your readers.
5 social bookmarking buttons that I use:
I do use a few others but these are the primary ones that are the most visible on my site.
1. Google + button: This allows your readers to give your post their public stamp of approval. The next time their friends and contacts search on Google, they could see their +1 of your post. Google + currently has over 100 million users.
2. Twitter Button: I use the official Twitter RT button. There are others but I prefer this one. This button encourages readers to tweet the content they are reading on Twitter. Twitter currently has over 300 million users.
3. Digg button: The Digg button, also known as the “Digg This” button encourages your readers to submit your content to Digg or to “Digg” your content. Digg currently has over 6 million users.
4. StumbleUpon button: This button allows your reader to easily submit your content to StumbleUpon and you can start enjoying additional traffic from StumbleUpon users who want to see content like yours! StumbleUpon currently has over 10 million users.
5. Facebook like button: The Like button enables users to make connections to your pages and share content back to their friends on Facebook with one click. Facebook currently has over 800 million users.
Having social bookmarking buttons on your blog will help in the promotion and growth of your blog. They will put your posts in front of millions of potential readers that you would have never been able to reach before.
Do you have any social bookmarking buttons on your blog? If so, which ones? If not, why?
