If you write a blog or any kind of website for that matter, I can’t stress how important it is to not only create good content for your site, but to promote your site by listing it in as many search engine listings, and directories as you can.
The more listings you have the more visitors you’ll eventually get. This of course is of particular importance if you are trying to monetize your site. Visitors mean money – eventually.
One of the sites that I would recommend that you list your sites on is Blogflux. This site isn’t only a directory in which you should list your blog, it has a number of other features that you can put to good use on your site as well.
On the Blogflux site you’ll find:
- A Button Maker – makes 80×15 or 88×13 buttons with a few clicks.
- LinkLog – Track what links are being clicked on by your users, how often they are clicked, and what pages they are clicked from.
- MapStats – The best way to keep track of your visitors. Not only does it provide the normal statistics found with other stat counter sites, it meshes up with Google Maps to show where your visitors are coming from.
- PageRank Checker – Google’s PageRank is a way of ranking how important a site is. Check and show off your PR to your site’s visitors.
- Pinger – Pinging other sites one by one can be a chore. Just enter two fields and hit submit to autmotically ping a dozen sites.
- Polls – Instantly create AJAX-driven polls that also let you map vote results to Google Maps.
- Quick RSS Links – Reduce the clutter on your blog. Use blogflux’ link to provide users with quick links to various feed subscribers or email subscription option.
