You can get your own content published on this site as long as you have CommentLuv installed on your site.

Doing so means you get exposure to thousands and thousands of other CommentLuv users and your posts get sent out to the massive subscriber list.

Google loves this site and indexes it multiple times per day and posts always get lots of comments so you can be sure of some excellent exposure.

Hand holding a Social Media 3d SpherePeople too easily forget that blogging requires a lot of hard work. You have to be consistent, and create regular content; and your work isn’t even done once you’ve created that blog post because now you have to go and share it to your social media profiles.

If you’re tired of feeling like your blog posts get written and then immediately disappear into the Web’s either, here are a few ideas for new ways to help you get more attention on social media sites and bring in more readers to your blog.

1. Start conversations

This may seem obvious, but it’s worth saying because there’s always more you can do to generate chatter around your content. If you want people to pay attention to your blog, you have to give them a reason to.

Encourage visitors to leave comments — and then actually respond to them! Make your posts easy to re-post with sharing buttons, and be the one to start conversations online.

Not only will you be a more interesting person to follow online, but you’ll actually build relationships with people and they’ll be much more willing to read and share your posts.

2. Make each status and tweet personal

It’s so easy just to connect your blog, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and any other networking sites, and then just post to one site that filters to the rest.

But you’ve probably noticed how annoying it is when one person’s tweets fill your entire Facebook feed. Each social networking site has a different tone — almost different rules — and you should take the trouble to make each social media profile you post to has unique content.

3. Give people
new reasons to follow you

If you feel like you’re stuck in a rut with social media, try something new. Finding a new hobby in your own life can spark creativity and give you something else to blog about that will draw in new readers.

If you want to give your current readers a reason to share your content to their personal profiles, you can encourage them with a contest through social media.

4. Collaborate as much as you can

The Internet is vast, and even if you run a niche blog there are almost certainly other blogs out there tackling the same topic. You might have a unique aspect to your site, and a little competition isn’t a bad thing, but having a “me vs. them” mentality doesn’t help anyone.

If you’re producing content within a specific industry, a success for someone else is a success for everyone, because it brings more attention to your field. Reach out to other blogs over social media, promote other people who are creating similar content by sharing their work (they’ll probably promote you in return), and work together to create new, interesting content.

5. Do your research and stay on top of the latest trends

Bloggers (and any kind of online business for that matter) tend to get stuck on the major social media sites like Facebook and Twitter — and that’s pretty much where their online marketing plan ends.

There are obvious benefits to being on Twitter and having a Facebook page, but if you’re looking to remain relevant, you should go where the crowds are. New social networking sites are popping up all the time, and new trends in blogging are worth your time.

The more you can grow your personal network and experiment with creating new kinds of media, the more likely that unfamiliar people will stumble across your blog. Just remember to have all your social media profiles connect back to your main website!

    Nice article Jeff. I have never given a try to collaboration as I feel no one would be agree for it as we all are running same niche site and trying our best to get past the other. Though we can try it out with our friend’s blog. Inviting others to comment on your blog and engage them with acknowledgement seems to a better idea to attract people’s attention into your blog. Anyways you have suggested nice ways to grow blog with social media.

    Jeff, thanks for refreshing our minds on how to grow our blogs using social media. Social media have become the rallying point for our blogs and every serious minded blogger must think of how to integrate his blog with the social media and take advantage of the potentials they offer.

    Let me start from your very last point. It is true that a lot of bloggers only know about Facebook, Twitter and perhaps Google+. They have hardly heard about sites like Bizsugar, Blokube, Blogengage, Tweetlow, Viralcontentbuzz, etc. They really need to explore new areas and expand their social spread.

    Like you rightly said, initiating comments on your site is a nice way to make people interact with you. You need to ask your readers questions and expect them to answer. You also need to encourage them to drop their contributions, questions or comments and assure them you will respond to their concerns as soon as possible. This would encourage them to leave their comments.

    Finally, engaging with others by visiting their blogs is a way of making them visit yours too. If you form the habit of commenting on other people’s blogs, they also do same when they visit yours too. So if you want more comments, visit fellow bloggers and comment on their posts.

    Thanks for this timely advice Jeff. I liked the second point about making each tweet and status update personal. Only the other day I was contemplating buying an automated plugin for social posting. Your point is a sort of reality check for me. Every social site is unique and as such, deserves a personal touch. Though, it means devoting some extra time, it is really worthwhile in the long run.

    • Jeff Orloff says:


      Twitter:
      Definitely, the days of automated posting are coming to an end because they lack that personal touch. Followers want to be engaged, not spoon-fed the same links that a bunch of other people are sharing.

    Hello jeff
    After publishing post our main task is to promote our content to readers.
    social media is great source of promotions, we should promote others blogs so that they also do same for us.

      In a traditional storefront business, working with the competition doesn’t always work out. Online, it is a different story. Collaboration can help get you in front of an entirely new audience and bring more traffic your way. Consider this, it is easy to jump between two sites for a different take or point of view so working with someone else in your space isn’t going to be detrimental if you are providing value.

    Hi Jeff,

    All the points you brought to the table are very good, even common sense points. No need to contradict with any of them. More useful it would be to emphasize a a specific point: Research.

    It is so important to research the net for information. So many bloggers avoid this important step.
    Wherever I look I find that about 90% of blogs post generic content. This means general information that, in principle, no one will contradict and there is a general consensus about their value and effectiveness.
    Now, it is good to know those principles and when you read it for the first time it will definitely help you. However, when you see the same thing repeated all over the place, it becomes very annoying. It is incredible how people succeed with this type of content. However, this is just a short term success.
    Unfortunately, at the end of the day, this type of content doesn’t help you much. So whenever I see things like : write stellar content, craft magnetic headlines, insert beautiful pictures, write short, sweet and to the point articles etc., I become enraged. It is like an ocean of redundant information that looks awesome but is empty and useless.
    So, all bloggers: do you research, find new information, create new perspectives and add value to your blog.

    Have a wonderful day

I try to make it a point to include links to my sources whenever I write because it not only gives credibility to my points but it shows that I take the time to research my point of view. It gives readers a bit of comfort knowing that I care enough not to just throw a post together.


  23. Twitter:
    Great article. I have been skeptical of filtering blog posts to all of my social media pages at once, because, as you mention, the tone and the audience of each are different. It is a bit more time consuming to go through each one, but it is worth it for my type of work. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Jeff,
    I must say i very well agree with your 5th tip which is doing your research and staying with the latest trend, one of the easiest way to do this is by subscribing to newsletters and getting all the current news in your inbox. Without proper research I will say your posts as a blogger would be dead posts and nothing meaningful will come out from it. Quality content is a good way of getting people to come back to your blog and taking tweets personal also helps with good traffic.
    tnx for sharing and have a nice wek ahead.

    When I first started working at HomeCity, the social media was minimally active but I have started doing some of the things showed on here and it has been helpful! We started with about 1,100 likes and in a week we are up to 1,300! To me, that’s a pretty big deal! It’s hard to be engaging when your company is one that doesn’t do frequent business. We had approximately 500 transactions last year whereas most companies can do that in an hour! So I have started posting community related posts and more! We are even working on getting a sweepstakes going! Any tips would be GREATLY appreciated!

  42. I think social media in all its forms (which are growing every day) is not only a good way to promote your blog but, an essential one as well. I\’ve been using various social platforms for the past year now to promote my blogs and have seen a tremendous improvement in the volume of traffic.

      Sometimes we get caught up in the size of these networks and spend too much time on them. We forget the amount of noise on them have caused many people to tune out where the smaller ones are attractive because people find the shared content more useful.

    Hello; I enjoyed the post. I was having trouble with getting people to read the longer posts on my site until someone helped me understand the importance of and a way to use headings in my blog posts. By breaking the posts up into smaller chunks more people are reading them. I try to include photos, video links, and links to other sites or past posts. but the most important thing I’ve done is to reach out to other bloggers. As I build friendships and get to know people by commenting on their posts I am building an audience of loyal friends who will support my site in return. And there are a lot of nice people out there in the bloggosphere. thanks for the post, Max

    Thanks Jeff, Another great article. I personally think that its all about conversation, If you talk to your social media friends and partners you gain new followers much faster. The nice thing is that its that type of follower you want, someone who regularly posts and discusses matters that mean the most.

  76. Hi,Thanks for your article, my opinion is SEO through social media is needed, google increasingly intelligent and constantly updated algorithms, this is not beneficial for SEO.

    Let me start from your very last point. It is true that a lot of bloggers only know about Facebook, Twitter and perhaps Google+. They have hardly heard about sites like Bizsugar, Blokube, Blogengage, Tweetlow

    Hey Jeff,
    Social Media has gained a lot of attention in the past couple of years. Facebook started first but Twitter went past Facebook.
    In my early days of using social media, I wasn’t that active and did not engage much with other bloggers and users on social media. But since last year, I have been in touch with some great bloggers like Lisa and Tom on the Twitter and the list goes on and on.
    Thanks a lot for sharing this with us. It will definitely form a part of my social media strategy.
