Yesterday, we covered several ways that you can promote your blog, which in turn will help with website promotion. Here are some additional suggestions:

1. Use all of the features offered by your software. If the blogging software you use allows you to tag your entries, by all means do so. Dividing your entries into different subject areas enables readers to find relevant posts and makes it easier for search engines to find you.

2. Syndicate your blog. Many people subscribe to blogs, so be sure to give them a way to do so. On a related note, provide readers a way to forward your blog posts via email to their friends and colleagues.

3. Include hyperlinks. When you are riffing on a story in the news or are commenting on another blog post, make sure to include a hyperlink to the original source. Having these links helps those you mention, who may just return the favor.

4. Use a blogroll. A blogroll is a list of sites or blogs that you think are great. Having a blogroll gives your blog more credibility with the search engines.

5. Write like clockwork. A blog loses its relevancy if the entries are dated, so set a goal for a certain number of posts per week and stick to it. Updating your blog two or three times a week is fine, but daily is even better.

As a closing note, your blog will look more interesting if you include photos or video. Blogging software walks you through the process, so don’t be afraid to add visual interest to your entries.
