Build a Name for Yourself on the Internet

What do you want your blog to be perceived in the blogosphere? Here are a few things that you can do to make your website stand out among others:

  1. The Purpose of your blog: What do you want your blog to do for others? Unless you are writing for your own consumption you expose your blog for the benefits of others. As an example my blog is about self improvement. I want to share ideas with my readers to improve certain aspect of their life like health, money, parenting and other things.

  1. Your title and tagline: Your blog title and the tagline will more or less convey a message to the people about your site’s objectives. From my subtitle I am telling the world that I will blog about self improvement in one’s life in 8 areas.

  1. Your articles: As an example, every article that I post will direct the readers' attention to one area of life to improve for the better. Your articles should be closely related to your niche.

  1. Promote your blog: Get your blog to be noticed by others online and offline:

· Social media: Bookmark your articles at social networking and social bookmarking sites. Obtain backlink to your site by submitting your popular articles to article directories like Join related forums and carnivals. Comment on other similar blogs. Make friends with like-minded people at Face book, Twitter, Plurk…

· Business cards: Include the address of yow website and a small description of your site in your business cards. Hand out your business cards freely to people your come into contact with.

· Newspaper and magazine write-ups: Solicit newspapers and magazine to do write-ups about your blog. The best time to do it is when you have something special happening at your blog or when your blog has reached certain milestone. I will request for a write-up when my blog’s Traffic Rank is in 6 digits or when I have improved my PageRank.

Things will not happen immediately. You will have to do it consistently to get the desired results. By impacting your blog title, you tagline, your articles over and over again you will curve a name for yourself in the Internet.

Wish you good luck.
