Blog Syndication

Once you have your blog up and running for your business, you will want to promote it and let your target audience know about your new content.

To that end, you can use blog syndication networks such as BlogBurst–the world’s largest blog syndication network, creating more than 100 million exposure opportunities monthly–to greatly expand your blog’s reach. With a blog syndication network, you are able to promote your blog posts automatically and free of charge on related websites or on leading publisher sites, depending on the syndication network. With BlogBurst, for example, links to your blog posts can become available on news sites such as USA Today, Reuters and Gannett, among others.

In your author byline, include your company name, a quick benefit of your products or services, and most importantly a link back to your website. Popular article topics include tips, success secrets, trends, points-of-view, and reviews of products/services.

Online article sites that tend to do well on the search engines include:
