There is a very familiar saying in blogging community that “Content is King” but what if your great content is unseen and hidden in the archives of your blog than its just a scrap for you. If you are not promoting your blog posts than you are wasting your time by only writing great content. You may get some free organic traffic but not all your blog posts will get traffic from search engines so you have to promote your unseen blog posts with the rest of the world specially with bloggers. But how do you tell the word about your great posts, well there are few places like Blogging community websites where bloggers meet and share there great content.
Now you may be wondering that if i am getting traffic from search engines than why i have to do all these things. Well the thing is that one should not depend upon only single source of traffic what if Google changes its algorithms again like Google panda update and suddenly your traffic drops than what will you do. Its always to have more than 1 traffic source so if one let you down than you should carry on with other and continue your journey.
