Use Social Bookmarking to Attract Readers

So you’re writing articles and posting them to your blogs. The question now is, how do you get your literary work in front of interested readers? There are a few different ways to accomplish this task.

One resource to submit your blog site to is FeedAgg.com. This is a one time submission per blog site. FeedAgg is a form of RSS, or Really Simple Syndication. This means that once your site has been submitted, it will update here automatically as you add new “feeds” or pages. It is then available for public viewing sorted by category and subject matter.

Another way you can bookmark your site is to install a button on your browser bar for a site called Stumbleupon. This installs a button with a thumbs up or thumbs down icon. When you stumble upon a web site that you like, you click the thumbs up icon. You choose a category for the site and type a brief review and it is bookmarked in the Stumbleupon library. The advantage of this feature is that you can use it to improve the popularity of your own web sites and blogs by clicking the thumbs up icon when you visit your own site!

Other services that work very similarly to each other are Delicious.com, Propeller.com and Digg.com. These require you to set up login information before bookmarking sites. These services are also designed to bookmark your individual blog posts rather than a single submission per blog. Each time you write a new page you want to submit to these services with the URL containing the specific post title. For easy submission to over 130 other bookmarking sites, visit Google’s socialmarking.com page and follow the instructions on the page.

Once you’ve completed all of your social bookmarking submissions, be sure to go to Pingomatic.com. Type in your blog post URL and with the click of a button send a ping to multiple internet services to let them know you have a new post to share!
