With all the Google updates and increasing competition for rankings, getting traffic to your blog can be tough. One strategy for promoting your blog that is usually overlooked though is joining blogging communities (also known as blog directories).

Blogging communities are basically just websites built for blogs of all different kinds of niches that help you get more eyeballs on your valuable content.

You can submit your blog and the community will get to see your posts. Some of these sites even use RSS to promote your posts as they are published.

This is a relatively new strategy for promotion for me that I just kind of recently stumbled upon that seems to be very powerful as long as you write good content.



Not only is it powerful when you use these communities, but after doing some research, I found there are hundreds of these sites built for bloggers.

If you want to boost your blog rankings, you better take a look at these blogging directories and start promoting. Here is a list of over 50 blogging communities or directories that I found:


1. Best Of The Web Blogs
