Blog Directory Submissions

Top Blog Directories List to Submit Your Blog To

This post is part 3 of the Traffic Action Plan, see part 1 here: –

Getting Website Traffic

and part 2 here: –

Submitting Articles For Traffic

This is another “old school” and “un-sexy” method that gets overlooked by most people now for getting traffic to new websites.

One of the most important things to remember when getting new backlinks to a fresh new website to help get it to rank well in the search engine results is to use a VARIETY of backlink building tactics so that the links are not all coming from one source or type of source. Mixing in some blog directory links is an easy way of ensuring this, but you will also discover you actually get visitors from some of these blog directories, as well as the valuable backlinks.

The directories below are specifically fro Blogs, if your site is not a blog then the best way to approach directory submissions is to pick up a simple [and cheap] piece of software that will automate the whole process for you, I’ve recommend taking a look at the one here: –

Submitting Articles For Traffic

This is Part 2 of the Simple Traffic Action Plan, read part 1 here: –
Getting Website Traffic

Using Article submission to get fresh traffic to a web site is often ignored by new website owners, either because it’s just not “sexy” and takes some actual “work”, or because it seems so “old school” it’s positively old fashioned and therefore can’t possibly still work, right..?


Don’t pay attention to the “doomsayers” saying article marketing doesn’t work anymore, you’ll usually find that they’re trying to sell you on something else…. 🙂

It not only still works, but if you do it right and be consistent, it works VERY well!

In fact there are plenty of marketers who use Article Marketing as the mainstay of their online business!

Submitting articles actually gives you multiple benefits: –

1. you get the backlinks from the articles to your website or blog which will increase it’s rankings in the search engines and bring more free organic search traffic

2. you get visitors from the article itself


Getting Website Traffic

Getting Website Traffic

Need to get some traffic to your new website?

Here’s my basic Traffic Action Plan…

These are simple “old school” techniques that you should always run through to start getting traffic to any new website you set up.

They’re not flashy or “black hat” or “secret loopholes”, they’re just the boring old standard stuff, but the important bit is these tactics WORK!

  1. Get your site indexed by submitting to some authority sites
  2. Article Submissions
  3. Directory Submissions [inc. Blog Directories]
  4. RSS Submissions
  5. Blog Comments
  6. Video Submissions
  7. Social Bookmarking
  8. Traffic Widgets for blogs
  9. Press Releases
  10. Blog Carnivals

I’ll be running through each of them in future blog posts, but to get things rolling we’ll cover the first straight away, as it’s really quite simple.

1. Getting your new website indexed

There’s actually two things I recommend doing to get any new website indexed, the first is to simply submit your website to the backlinks tool here: –


WordPress Automation Tool

WordPress Automation Software

yesterday a new WP automation tool was released and I’ve been having a play with it, so I thought I’d make a few videos to show just how easy to use this thing is!

This first video, below, covers how to use the software to install a fresh new WordPress blog.

The second video will be how the tool will automatically gather as much keyword based content as you need, allow you to choose which bits to use and the frequency of posts, so you can easily set up a whole years worth of posts in one go, giving you a truly hands free blog…

The third video will cover the main plugin itself which automates the monetization of the blog.

I know from personal experience how effective this kind of plugin can be, as I have my own bespoke plugin that does the same sort of thing that I have been using across most of my auto blog for the last 2-3 years, and it works VERY WELL! 🙂
