Hi, If you want to rank your blog post in google, the content must be unique, informative and valuable. And there is some technical points of SEO, Like Meta title, description should be well optimized. and the do keywords internal linking and then just share it on your social networks It just take a few days to show in SERP. It’s my personal experience. try it
Another great way to promote your blog is to reach out to other bloggers in your niche and see if they would be interested in guest posting on your blog or featuring your blog on their website. This is a great way to get your blog noticed by people in your industry.
Most of the time, I choose local category businesses that are easy to rank and get the targeted audience. Currently, I am working on sash window restoration project and targeting the UK audience by creating service based pages. The other strategy is sharing content on social media and creating videos that will help the audience. As you know content is king so mainly we are focusing on content and provide more and more unique content.
Never even thought about answering questions on Quora, would I do this by shamelessly plugging my blog post to answer my question or just having it as a link on my account?
Also are quora links nofollow?
I haven’t been able to make Flipboard work for me. Granted, I have a lot of trouble finding others in my niche… There is not a lot of menswear content on flipboard, most of it comes from big publications (GQ, Esquire, Gear Patrol, Robb Report, etc.) and not human people who flip others’ content, and most of it is very bad (“here are 172 suits every man needs!”)
Medium’s import feature works terribly for me. I can kind of get it to work with RSS – the main problem becomes galleries, which all break out into separate photos in a row, and image captions, which all just get converted to regular text…
But the other problem is that they don’t show my articles to anybody there, and I’m under 100 followers, so I’m not eligible to get paid anyway. I left a lot of comments trying to find an audience there, I got fans on my comments, but the number of people clicking or reading my articles, even on medium, is pretty negligible.
