Energize your Blog with Dominique (Week 3)

This is the 3rd article from a 5 week series by Dominique Goh from 'Learning with Dominique'.

Week 1: How to make your Blog Unique
Week 2: Boosting your Readership

I won Dominique's blog giveaway a while ago and part of the prize package was 5 guest post articles. I thought a topic that would benefit all of us would be how to build a blog that appeals to more visitors. Dominique jumped on it and has beautifully titled the series- 'Energize Your Blog' .

Feel free to leave any comments, questions, suggestions below each post.

Week 3- Linking via listing on Blog Directories

Before you can get others to link back to you there must be a bait there to attract them.

One of the best ways is to host contests and giveaways on your blog. Where there is a chance of winning something for FREE there will always be an interested crowd. However just listing a giveaway on your site is not going to bring in the traffic if your blog is relatively new.

There are a few ways by which you can build traffic for a new blog.

  1. List your blog on blog directories/social media sites.

  2. List your blog on Mom directories

Listing on blog directories/social media sites.

There are many free blog directories where you can list your blog. Some may require a link back while others do not. I recommend getting your blog listed in these directories.

- Technorati (

One of the most comprehensive directories which allow you to search content for all its blogs on specific subjects/topics.

- Blog Catolog(

This is a social networking site and a blog directory which I use. Like other social bookmarking sites you create a profile and make friends on this site. I list all my blogs on this site and their feeds are constantly updated giving the reader an idea of the content I have on my sites.

Listing on Mom directories

- Blogarama (
- Blogamama (
-Momdotcom (
- Everything Mom (

*These are only a few mom directories out of the thousands out there. You just need to google search “ mom directories” to see which one would be the best fit for your blog.*
