You’re blog is as good as dead if no one reads it. Imagine no one is reading the precious piece from your extravagant imagination? Since the WYDIANS journal season 2 have started today. I am going to teach you how to promote your blog site so that other people, WYD players or non players alike can be aware that you exist in blogosphere.

1.) Submit your blog thru search engine submission sites. Especially on the most used search engine such as Google and Yahoo!

Google Site Submission: http://www.google.com/addurl/
Yahoo! Submit your site: http://submit.search.yahoo.com/

If the site requires a tag or keywords’ to be filled up always include tags such as WYD, WYD GLOBAL, WITH YOUR DESTINY, FREE, MMORPG, FUN, ONLINE GAME.

Tags or keyword are important so that the search engines can easily find your site.

2.) Join Social book marking sites. From Wikipedia : Social bookmarking is a method for Internet users to store, organize, search, and manage bookmarks of web pages on the Internet with the help of metadata. In a social bookmarking system, users save links to web pages that they want to remember and/or share.

These bookmarks are usually public, and can be saved privately, shared only with specified people or groups, shared only inside certain networks, or another combination of public and private domains.

The allowed people can usually view these bookmarks chronologically, by category or tags, or via a search engine.

Just think of it as a Friendster or Myspace for your site and the one representing you is your blog.

Two best example of Social Bookmarking sites are Technorati and Mybloglog

3.) When updating your blog use tags! TAG’S as I said earlier it is really important since the search engine depends a lot in this four letter word wonder.

4.) Interact with other bloggers. Especially if you’re a reader of someone blogs. If someone’s blog article interests you put your honest opinion about it together with the url of your blog in the fill up form. With that the blogger of that site will visit your blog and probably become a regular reader of it. It’s free to comment so, do it! The same with your blog if someone puts a comment into your blog. Reply!

5.) Link Back and Relax!. yes if you are fond of reading someone’s blog. Link them back to yours or in other terms simply put them into your blogroll! if they saw you that you link them then they might link you back.

6.) Verbal Effort. tell your  friends about your blog. Promote it thru forums or other social networking place in the web.

Hope that i enlightned your mind with this valuable lesson. Now goodluck and Happy Blogging 🙂
