CONNECT WITH HBB ON SOCIAL MEDIA

When you start your blog, you’re excited to reach out to the world and share your thoughts with everyone. There are some basic rules that you must follow in order to successfully launch your blog:

Launching Blogs

1. Focusing on a specific topic

Write the first few articles on a specific topic and maintain this for some duration. Even if you can make a few “off topic” topics from time to time but respect the fact that 80% of your blog should be devoted to your main theme. Therefore, it is essential to define its scope at the outset.

2. Write a few articles first

You should go for a launch only after you’ve a couple of articles on your blog. These articles should be of good quality (basic principles, user manual, controversy etc.). There’s nothing worse than a blog with 1 or 2 items.

3. Regularity

Publish an article every day for 2 or 3 weeks in the beginning, and then you can slow down the pace (say, 2 posts per week).

4. Work on your connections

Communicating via your website and social bookmarking sites like digg and delicious is very essential. If you chose a “classic” theme, very soon you will attract the world and you will improve your ranking quickly.

5. RSS Feeds

6. Don’t Ignore the Power of Forums

Post info in the forums dedicated to your industry, start contributing in the comments of blogs (NO SPAM comments at all!)

7. Start with your Friends and Family

Send an email to your closed ones that you’ve opened your own blog. You can do this with all your contacts (personal, pro, customers, prospects …).

8. Use Printed Material

Make business cards with the address of your blog, and mention your blog in your other sites (if you’ve any).

9. Get easy links

Register your blog and RSS feeds in general or specialized directories.

10. Social Networking

Last but not the least create a profile on networking sites like LinkedIn, Technorati, Facebook, Twitter etc. It may help you to receive considerable amount of visitors, and even if it does not, it definitely improves your SEO and appearance of your site.

      Those are some good tips. The part about writing a few posts first helps as it is always nice to launch a blog with some content. Also, have a good posting schedule, where you post every day is good as it helps to get your content out there sooner, and helps with getting search engines to index your site. Also, with many posts, it may help to get a few keywords from search engines.

      Establishing connections with many others in your niche is great at helping to drive visitors to your blog, and will also help if you choose to create other blogs as well. With connections, you may also find you get additional backlinks to your blog as connections are generally supportive and helpful.

      I think it is a bad idea to go with a blog post a day especially if you are new to blogging. Because at the beginning you need to spend a considerable time letting other know about your blog. Once you start getting the traffic and the comments then you can think of posting regularly.
