60% of marketers say blog content creation is their top inbound marketing priority. A lot of times, blog-engaging sites will register in your analytics as social visits. However, if you share high quality content with these communities, people will start linking to your content from their blogs, generating referral visits to your site. Triberr, Blog Engage, and Biz Sugar are three of the top blog aggregating websites. Blog aggregating sites tend to do pretty well for their users. One Triberr user found that one of their posts generated 3,800 flares and 91 comments (a flare is Triberr’s version of Facebook’s like). We also found that Triberr users tend to start sharing content on their websites, to generate even more referral traffic.
Steps to complete this task
Create accounts with platforms like AllTop, Triberr, Biz Sugar, and Blog Engage. These sites can be very useful in blog aggregating!
Create good content. If your content is great it will usually rise to the top which of course, leads to more exposure. Post unique and useful content 2 to 3 times per week.
Like and interact with as many other posts as possible. In addition to interacting with the posted content, actually go to the blog and leave a comment. Don’t immediately bring up your product or service. Make sure your message is on topic and then slowly bring your business into the discussion. Become a known entity and marketing opportunities on other’s blog sites will start to become available to you.
Continue posting your content on your regular social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc.).
