RSSHugger – Free Promotion For Your Blog

Blogging is fun and every blogger tries to reach out to newer audience and it is essential for a blog’s growth. Promoting your blog is the next important thing after publishing good content. If you write, readers will come isn’t true. You have to reach out to them to garner their attention. I am always on the lookout for fresh content and new blogs and I add close to 5 new blogs every week. Some of them stay in my feed reader and some of them vanish. I am sure there are many others who do the same.

With RSSHugger, now you can reach out to some of those readers looking for new blogs. You might end RSSHugger up increasing your RSS feed(?) subscription numbers a little bit this way.

How do I get listed?

You can get your blog listed by doing one of 2 things:

  • Get your blog listed by paying $20. OR
  • Post about RSSHugger in your blog and get listed for FREE

Why get listed?

RSSHugger has a Top 100 list of RSS feeds. If you can promote your blog to that list, eventually it will have a positive effect on your RSS subscriber numbers. What if you don’t get ranked this month, no worries the list is reset every month so you have a chance to get listed every month!

Even if you are not in the Top 100 right away, you are not totally invisible. There is a ‘Random Blog’ button that gives your blog feed a good chance of showing up. Your blog feed also shows up in the list of 100 new feeds.

At the time of writing this post, there is only 268 blogs listed and I say this is a great time to get listed.

How to Promote?

StumbleUpon is a powerful tool and Matthew has a great tip on promoting your RSS feed. Stumble your RSSHugger Feed page and it sure to convert a few stumblers into your readers. If you already have a RSSHugger page, leave your feed url at Matthews post to get some Stumble love.

I never say no to some Stumble love as well. You can visit ShanKri-la’s Feed Page here and help improve ShanKri-la’s ranking and give a little Stumbling. :grin:

Update : ShanKri-la has been approved at RSSHugger now!

Improving RSS subscribers is a very important task for any blog. How could I say no to an excellent way to reach out to a wider audience through RSSHugger?

Could you?

Update: 12-07-07

Thanks for everyone stumbling and visiting ShanKri-la’s RSSHugger Feed page.  I was thrilled to see us at the 9th position shooting past even JohnChow:grin:

    RSSHugger sounds like a pretty cool service, the only problem is that I don’t really want to spend $20 on it and I can’t exactly post about it because it doesn’t really fit on my blog. I guess I’ll just have to deal without but I do hope that it works for those who try it out.

  2. K December 5, 2007 at 2:30 pm #

    Michael, that is true. $20 is a lot for a new service that doesn’t have established success stories. There might be other options down the line but I’ll definitely talk here about the views I get from there. I am still waiting on their approval for my blog right now.

    Matthew, I submitted my review post this morning but it hasn’t been approved yet! :-) I guess you could still Stumble it! I don’t think the URL is going to be different after the approval. Appreciate the effort buddy!

    Hopefully it will knock you into the top spots

    Nice review. I’m tying out rssHugger also to see how well it works for traffic. :smile:

    I looks like RSSHugger is a decent tool to boost your Blog’s traffic. I will try that on my Blog :evil:

    I have had pretty good traffic from RSSHugger and definitely some new subscribers. Since the stats are going to get reset at the beginning of the month, make sure you promote your RSSHugger page with tools like StumbleUpon to get to the top of the list. Good luck and let me when you post it. I’ll stumble it for you. :-)

  11. K December 28, 2007 at 3:07 pm #

    Tim, that actually does work well in favor of a blog at its starting stages or until it hits around 100 subscribers. I have showed mine since I had 5 readers. :-) It might have been faster without that but I guess its a good one to experiment and glad to see that you are having success with that! :-)
