Blogging can take quite a while to master and to learn to write great blog posts. However great blog posts are virtually useless and have little chance of making you any money if no one reads them. So you need some easy cheap ways of promoting your business blog.
One of the best way of promoting your blog for free is to advertise your blog in your forum signature files.
It always amazes me how many people spend hours a day writing forum posts and replying to them that do not have any advertising in their forum signature file. I will have to admit that some of the forums require one to master basic BB code which I assume is why people just do not bother creating signature files.
However once you have mastered creating forum signature files you can search for forums relevant to your business with high page ranking and use your signature files to create back links to your blog. The more relevant high ranking back links you can create the higher your blog will appear in the search results.
It is not just a matter of adding a link in your forum signature but you should write something that attracts the attention of other forum participants so that they click though to find out more about your business. Some forums allow you to use colors and lots of different fonts but others can be a bit restrictive. These restrictions might mean you have to be a bit more creative but do not over do it so that they tighten the restrictions even further.
Before you get too creative be sure to write some good posts and helpful replies to other forum posts so that people begin to trust you and no just see you as someone spamming their forum. Some forums only allow email signature links to be shown after a certain number of posts have been written and frown upon those who post short posts to reach this quota. So read the forum rules before you post so that you do not get banned. Remember that some of the bigger forums want people to put in a bit of effort before they can get the benefits. After all it is a free advertising in some cases to literally thousands of forum members.
Each post you make with a link to your blog in your signature also helps create more back links to your blog. The more relevant high ranking back links you can get to your blog the higher it will rank in the search results. This means more organic traffic to your blog as well as the traffic you are now getting from the forums.
So before you join any forums think about what you blog is about and search for relevant forums so that you can use your forum signature to promote your blog. The more relevant the forums are the better, as this can also lead to your blog being better optimized for the search engine results.
