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.
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.
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?
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.
