In the last articles of the “become a blogger” series, I discussed how to start your blog, pick a good niche that makes money, and write SEO articles. I assume that now you have built your blog and started writing content and articles. But there is always a problem in starting. Nobody knows you and your blog. Even if you do your job right, nothing happens. Nobody visits your SEO articles. So, in this article series, I will tell you how to get blog traffic and how to drive traffic to a blog. The first part of this series is content syndication. Then, I will tell you about content syndication benefits, networks, platforms, and best practices to get traffic to a blog.
Content Syndication Definition
What is content syndication? Content syndication is simply copying and pasting, and publishing your content on different websites on the internet that already get traffic. For example, there are many master blogs, Q&A websites, Social media platforms, etc., that normally people search for content, and you can share all of your content and articles there to get natural traffic to your blog.
Content Syndication Lead Generation and Networks
There are a lot of content syndication networks that you can use to increase traffic on the blog. Here I prepared a list of the bests that you can use:
Tumblr itself says: Tumblr is a place to express yourself, discover yourself, and bond over the stuff you love. It’s where your interests connect you with your people. It has more than 330 million views per month.
Linkedin has more than 750 million members and more than 1.7 billion views per month.
And also, here are the other networks that you can use to share your content. All are very popular and have many views:
4. Quora Spaces
You should go to any of these websites and build a profile. All of them are free and suitable for content syndication. After building your profile, copy and paste all of your content to your profile there. Use some of your hashtags from the best keywords you found before and post your content on all of them. It will let you have many benefits. Your site will be linked to all of those sites, and it’s also good for your off-page SEO. You can build a network of audiences in any of them.
Content Syndication Platforms and Tools
Till now, we found content syndication definitions and the best content syndication networks. But there is a problem. Copy and pasting your content on all of these networks may cost you a lot of time, and somehow, it’s very boring. So whenever something is boring, you should find a way to automate it. It’s where content syndication tools can help us.
Many platforms and tools can do the job for you automatically. For doing this automatically, you can use Hootsuite, Buffer, and ContentStudio. All of these platforms let you do the job with several clicks. They connect to your profiles on most of that networks and show you what your content will be like on them, and you can post it on all of the networks with several clicks.
Automated content syndication on WordPress
If you built your blog with WordPress, you could use WordPress plugins to do the job automatically. I use a plugin named BLOG2SOCIAL. It will automatically lessen your new content on most of those networks and automates a calendar feature to set the best times for any network. If you do the configuration and settings, it will automatically post all of your content at the best times.
